I'm confident mine is the real thing. And I go a bit manic when I find I've been hit by a fake, I research each point carefully so there's no way the seller can dispute I'm imagining things.

Some quick checks you can do:

Fake bottles aren't well-finished/the symmetry is off, sometimes the lid is too tight. Spray caps can fall off (happened to me with a fake Miss Dior Cherie!). The batch number on the transparent brand sticker under the bottle should match the batch number underneath the box.

The spray "tube" should be almost invisible/inconspicuous in the bottle - thick, even mis-shapen, tubes are a clear sign of fakery.32436728-ncaDu.jpg(fake on the right)

Look for the "steep curved glass" shape on the bottom of the bottle:
Fake: 32436728-8581k.jpgReal:
32436728-ge3B1.jpgLook at the liquid - does it look cloudy? (I have read there can be changes in colour, depending on the age of the bottle, however - the real liquid is a pinky rose-gold but some say theirs goes more orangey over time).

Check for cost-cutting with the box - it won't have the "holographic" surround, the glitter, the embossed lettering. Mis-spellings are common on fake boxes.

Try the QR and barcode on the back of the box with a barcode scanner app on your mobile phone.

For the more concerned/paranoid: Post pictures and details on fragrance forums (Fragrantica is my favourite), or even take it to your local Lancome counter at a department store.

Obviously a fake smells "similar" but usually it doesn't last (I've read of counterfeiters mixing their fake perfumes with a percentage of the real thing, and lord knows what else).

Edit: See my post further down the thread for further pointers.

Beautiful smell .....hot from me 😄

It's been this price a few times in recent months, last time around September I think (think I posted it back then).

Mine came from Madrid via UPS

Amazing fragrance but too many fakes on Amazon

I Purchased a bottle when on offer in September it did not smell the same as the bottle I previously had from boots . I returned and received a full refund

Absolutely love this!!!

This one sold direct from amazon so you'd like to think it should be the real thing

Seller for this looks to be Amazon and not a partner. I have put a order in. Thanks for the find, she will be happy!

Amazing perfume. Got this for my birthday and I’m constantly getting comments on how nice it is

I agree. I don't buy fragrance from Amazon

damn, wish I didn't cancel my prime

That’s a different perfume..

There are LOTS of variants (or flankers) of La Vie Est Belle, probably because it's such a popular perfume.
32437454-JpHGm.jpgOnly the original La Vie Est Belle is missing from that list! I bet lots of people get a "different" version of perfume from well-meaning relatives as gifts.

Apparently a "lighter, more wearable" version. Always a good idea to try out the flankers before blind-buying.

Lancôme La Vie est Belle Légère fragrantica.com/per…tml"...does not deviate too much from the original; its strong gourmand notes are soothed and refreshed though, adapted for hot days. The new version exudes white musk aura, which is added to the original "edible" aromas of black currant, chocolate praline and vanilla mixed with flowers of jasmine and iris."

Here's a real vs fake video, fakes vary in their differences, however:

Mentioning a few points, though best to watch the whole video ..note the fake bottle on the right has liquid that looks "cloudy" and the colour is off. The colour of the scent should be pinky-rose-gold (though someone on Fragrantica said the colour of hers changed to more orangey as time passed, and thought it may be the Vanilla).

Older versions of La Vie Est Belle did have the Lancome "Rose" branding on the top of the spray cap, at 4:36. Mine has La Vie Est Belle embossed on top at 4:18 (also correct) fragrantica.com/boa…986

The back of the box (showing the ingredient list) has glitter on the fake, no glitter on the real item at 1:34.

The fake box looks quite dinged and scratched on the bottom at 1:01 - not sure if this Youtuber received theirs like this, but a box/bottle that looks as though it's had a hard life, even from new, suggests it's not real.

The cap should have a silver underside, like this:32440336-DLYI7.jpgSome good pictures on here, added a couple: fakeblack.com/fak…me/

Inside the box (my cardboard has diagonal-grain black cardboard with the embossed Lancome Rose, as the Real box)32440336-NQJS9.jpgNote the shorter spray cap on the Real bottle32440336-Q4EpD.jpg

When they run out of stock, the Amazon listing disappears - you must be too late

I added more details how to authenticate, to help you girls and guys out
