I have no idea what the original smells like. I bought this just as a random buy while picking up other fragrances I know I like. I often buy Instyle's Burberry Britt, Flowerbomb, and Amazing Grace, and pick up new items just to try them. This fits in that style of airy, pretty fragrances.
This version of La Vie Est Belle is a new obsession. It feels light and sunny like Clinique Happy, but much more complex and sensual. It is sexy without being sexual, if anyone can understand that. I wish I could describe the scent itself, but it's quite unique. Definitely floral, rather heady and intoxicating. It's not musky, it's not dark, it's very bright and makes me feel like dancing.
As with most Instyle fragrances, it's not super long lasting, I keep a travel atomizer to reapply during the day, but even that is fun, it gives a little aromatherapy boost whenever I apply it.
For me, this is a definite recommend.

Not nearly identical to LVEB but still lovely! Lasts for hours.
Words to describe this fragrance…… There are so many notes in this fragrance ones that I did not detect in the original. Upon spraying this fragrance the first note I detected was maybe Lime mixed with a white flower, sweetness and muskiness.....
Thank you for this inspired version. It is not “just like the original “, it is an Inspired Fragrance. Thank you so much for your version of La Vie Est Belle.
I was so excited to purchase this perfume for I’ve always have been a fan of the original but couldn’t bring my self to pay $100 for it. This smells so much like it 💜
