I am a crazy fan when it comes to gourmand perfumes, and C'est La Vie fits the bill and has won my heart. Every one of these notes in this perfume are my some of my favorites and are so beautiful. Come on, who doesn't like praline, vanilla, Tonka Bean and fruits? And don't forget the patchouli note in there which I can never get enough of. Layered has combined all these fragrances to create a beautiful gem of a perfume. On a scale of 1-10, I would rate this a 100 if I could. Projection and longevity are strong in a very good way. In my opinion, this is a mass appealing perfume...sweet, sexy, alluring, lovely, and intriguing. I have a back up bottle, and I plan to buy more. Would make a great gift!! So, if you love gourmand perfumes, run and don't walk to buy this beauty!!! It's worth every penny and then some.
