Lancome Perfume Guide: Best Fragrances for Women

Feminine fashion blogger Elizabeth Hugen of Lizzie in Lace shares a full Lancome perfume guide and fragrance collection featuring a Lancome Idole and La Vie est Belle Review

 

 

If there’s one thing I love as much as dresses, it’s fragrance! My perfume collection has grown quite a bit over the years as I’ve continued my journey of feminine fragrance discovery. And when it comes to feminine fragrances, one brand comes to mind – Lancôme. I discovered Lancôme nine years ago when I started this blog. It started with lipstick (my fave) then expanded to skincare, more makeup products and now fragrance.

The Lancome Idole and Lancome La Vie est Belle collections are my very favorite but truthfully, I’ve never smelled a Lancome perfume that I didn’t like. Plus they have so many different choices and variations to fit anyone’s fragrance personality. Check out my full Lancome Perfume Guide below where you get a breakdown of all of the Lancome fragrances!

Lancome Perfume Guide

 

Lancôme Idôle Perfumes

 

I’m sure you have heard of Lancome Idole. It is a best-seller after all (and for good reason!). In my opinion, the Idôle collection is more youthful and a bit more playful than La Vie est Belle but still it’s very elevated, elegant and ultra feminine. If you love rose or vanilla, this is the collection for you!

Idôle Eau de Parfum

 

Idôle Eau de Parfum is original in the Idôle Collection lineup. This Lancome perfume is incredibly ladylike and classic with a delicate mix of florals. I honestly love ALL of the Idôle fragrances but this one will always hold a special place in my heart. It can be worn for pretty much any occasion and can easily be used as a signature scent. It’s one of my very favorites – expect lots of compliments! The bottle is also incredible beautiful and looks amazing displayed on a vanity or perfume shelf.

Idôle Eau de Toilette

 

Idôle Eau de Toilette is the newest addition to the Lancôme Idôle fragrance family! In comparison to Idole eau de Parfum, the EDP smells a bit more “full” and robust. Idôle Eau de Toilette has a much lighter and fresher scent. I can definitely smell the green tea! This Lancome USA fragrance would be perfect for those that love clean or light scents. The bottle is very similar to the EDP version.

Feminine fashion blogger Elizabeth Hugen of Lizzie in Lace shares a full Lancome perfume guide and fragrance collection featuring a Lancome Idole Nectar Review

Idôle Nectar Eau de Parfum Nectar

 

Idôle Nectar Eau de Parfum Nectar is another favorite from this collection! This Lancome perfume is warm, sweet and sensual making it the perfect date night fragrance. To me, it smells like a delightful concoction of vanilla popcorn – so delicious! The bottle on this one is darker with a rainbow shine in the middle. I just love how Lancôme perfume collections keep the same overall shape and look for cohesion but with each new version of the scent, comes a unique vessel.

Feminine fashion blogger Elizabeth Hugen of Lizzie in Lace shares a full Lancome perfume guide and fragrance collection featuring a Lancome Idole Aura Review

Idôle Aura Eau de Parfum

 

Idôle Aura Eau de Parfum is one of the prettiest Lancome fragrances that I’ve smelled to date! It’s includes an abundance of florals with the slightest hint of sweetness. This fragrance is super feminine with a light, sunny feel making it ideal for weddings or any special occasion! The bottle is probably my favorite of the Idole collection! It features a gradient that starts in the middle and dissipates on the top and bottom.

Idôle Now Eau de Parfum

 

Idôle Now Eau de Parfum is a very unique Lancome perfume as it combines nature and science in an interesting way. This fragrance focuses on upcycled, repurposed and sustainable ingredients, combined together for a sweet concoction of vanilla and rose. The bottle is also absolutely gorgeous with a colorful gradient moving from the bottom to the top.

Idôle L’Intense Eau de Parfum

 

Idôle L’Intense Eau de Parfum smells like a beautiful mix of florals and vanilla with a hint of musk!

Feminine fashion blogger Elizabeth Hugen of Lizzie in Lace shares a full Lancome perfume guide and fragrance collection featuring a Lancome Idole La Power Mist Review

Idôle La Power Mist

 

The Idôle La Power Mist is a hair and body mist version of the original Idôle! This mist has the same classic Idôle fragrance notes making it a very clean, fresh and feminine choice that’s perfect for daily wear. It’s not as concentrated as the EDP so the scent is much lighter. For a longer lasting scent, I recommend using it for hair rather than body. The bottle itself is dreamy as ever with a frosted glass exterior.

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Perfumes

 

La Vie est Belle is one of the best-selling fragrances for women! There’s a reason that so many flock to this as their signature scent – it’s elegant, feminine and timeless. From the bottle design to the scent itself, this collection embraces classic femininity with a twist. If you are a fan of Iris, you will love this collection!

La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum

 

La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum is probably the most iconic Lancome perfume (and one of the most popular fragrances for women period!). It smells like a lovely mix of florals and vanilla with a hint of playfulness. In my opinion. La Vie est Belle is like Idôle’s older sister! I think that it suits most people and easily has the potential to become a signature scent. This is another favorite from my fragrance collection! The bottle for this fragrance is elegant, feminine and unique. The bow detail reminds me of a silk scarf!

La Vie est Belle L’Extrait is a deeper version of the original. This Lancome perfume has a woodsy scent with a hint of floral making it ideal for the colder seasons and date night.

La Vie est Belle Iris Absolu Eau de Parfum

 

La Vie est Belle Iris Absolu Eau de Parfum is is elegant and refined. This Lancome fragrance has a lovely floral scent with a slight sandiness. In my opinion, it fits the very description of “fall florals” making it ideal for transitioning from summer to fall (although it could work for other times). The bottle for this one has that classic La Vie est Belle design with a semi-circle of soft grooves and a soft coral bow.

La Vie est Belle Rose Extraordinaire

 

La Vie est Belle Rose Extraordinaire is the newest addition to the Lancome La Vie est Belle fragrance collection. It actually just launched a couple of days ago and I’m already smitten! This perfume by Lancome is the epitome of woodsy florals. It includes three types of rose notes making it ideal floral lovers. It’s beautiful for special occasions but also has the ability to be signature scent for daily wear. The bottle for this one is actually my favorite from the collection.

Which Lancôme perfume is the best?

 

The is honestly a very personal question that is unique to everyone’s personal scent preferences. I truly love both the Lancome Idole and Lancome La Vie est Belle collections but the original versions will always be my favorite. Nectar and Aura are other favorites from the Idole line and I’m really loving the new La Vie est Belle Rose Extraordinaire. I hope that this Lancome perfume guide will help you select your favorites as well!

Plus Mother’s Day is coming up and any of these would be perfect gifts! In my opinion, Lancome holiday gift set options are among the very best. I always love grabbing a few for Christmas but other holidays like Mother’s Day are ideal as well. Sometimes you can even get a Lancome gift with purchase! They usually offer a Lancome promo code as well to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
