It’s Friday and — I’m not sure if I’ve ever said this — I have the day OFF! So, if you’re in the mood to binge-watch The Real Housewives of Orange County and/or join me in a beach chair on my roof for some tanning, then come on over.
I’m here all day.
Today’s Fresh Friday scent has interesting little story. The bottle came in my Sephora sample pack I always mention. So, I’ve worn it a few times over the past five months. However, the little bottle (very cute, I may add) has NO indication of what the scent is called or who made it.
So, I had to dig up my little guide-book that came with the box to find out. And lo and behold: it’s La vie est belle by Lancome.
According to that little book, “The inspiration is “Life is beautiful” captures the daring spirit of the modern woman. The Notes are Iris pallida, patchouli, orange blossom, and jasmine, with a sweet gourmand blend. The impression is addictive; crafted to make you irresistible, sex appeal by design.”
Frankly, I’m still developing my opinion on this one. Every time I take a whiff, I smell something different. Truthfully, it’s got a very nostalgic smell. It smells like a stereotypical perfume. I’m not sure if that makes any sense, but when I think of perfume, I think of those old school bottles with the squeeze-pump, and that’s the scent I would think would be in one of those.
Nonetheless, it’s light, but it has character. It’s also a long-lasting perfume, so it’d be great for day wear.
Anyway, I hope you all have a fantastic day, and weekend — if you’re interested in Southern cooking, one of our local favorites, Jay Ducote from Bite and Booze, is competing in Food Network’s “The Next Food Network Star,” which premiers on Sunday! Check it out! See y’all back here on Monday…
