What if happiness could be captured in a bottle? In 1949, Lancome founder Armand Petitjean asked his artistic director George Delhomme to create a bottle to symbolize the aura of women. Entitled The Crystal Smile, this bottle captures the quintessence of happiness: the grace of a smile cut into glass. 63 years later, and over one year of production, this design finally assumes its full significance with “La vie est belle”. Reinterpreted in resolutely contemporary aesthetics, it has been created in the image of a free and happy woman. - Lancôme
On Thursday, November 1, 2012 J.L. Penha & Sons had their launch event for the "La vie est belle" fragrance by Lancôme. It was actually my first time attending an event like this and I never thought that they would be so much fun. Although I wasn't 100% crazy about the fragrance, I loved the bottle and the concept behind it. Especially the part of the philosophy that says “La vie est belle” or “life is beautiful” is the expression of a new era. It represents a choice, the choice to break free from convention, the choice to create your own path to happiness".
If you are someone who really likes soft & feminine fragrances, La vie est belle is definitely worth checking out. But the night was not only about the fragrance, Lancôme's international make-up artist, Alfred Vargas, also presented some new beauty products by Lancôme to us by giving a whole make up routine demonstration.
This post wouldn't be complete without mentioning that I attended this event with some of my fellow bloggers from Curacao. We sure did have a blast and I can't wait to attend more events with the girls.
I'll leave you with some pictures of the event and stay tuned for my post about the goodie bag received at the event.
