Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Illuminating Fragrance Oil

A fragrance that's also a body treatment product:  that’s a great idea, at this time of year - post-summer, and when central heating's about to sap any remaining moisture out of our skins.  Enter Lancôme's bestselling La Vie Est Belle, now available as an 'Illuminating Fragrance Oil', which nourishes skin with sweet almond, apricot kernel and sesame plant oils, while veiling skin in this delectable 'gourmand iris' scent.  (Think:  notes of iris, orange blossom, white jasmine, good-enough-to-eat praline, vanilla and tonka bean – and a pulsing base of patchouli, for mystery.)  It’s a sinks-in-fast ‘dry oil’, which multi-tasks neatly:  you can even smooth a touch into the ends of dry hair, for waft-after-waft of gorgeousness.  Be aware:  it's a limited edition, so you might want to stock up if you're a fan - because (like the tail-end of summer), it won't be around for long.
