How it works
Rebottled La Vie de Boheme, rebottled by Scentbird, Inc., an independent bottler from a genuine product wholly independent of Anna Sui Scentbird, Inc., New York, NY 10001
I found this to be a perfect bright floral scent. The peony holds true to the other scents in this fragrance and I personally found it to be a very whimsical, gently romantic scent. I think my only complaint is that I didn't know about this perfume before now. The berry notes tend to come out when heat is introduced and it adds a level of sweetness to the overall fragrance. definitely will be buying more of this one!!
Very surprised at how yummy this perfume smells. I always worry that a perfume I pick is going to smell bad. But this one smells so nice and soft. But not too soft to where you can?t smell anything. Just a light delicious smell
So I actually received a men?s cologne in place of the Anna Sui La Vie Boheme. I was so disappointed and contacted Scentbird it took a few weeks but they worked it out and sent me La Vie Boheme. I am so glad that I fought for the perfume that was in my que because this is AMZING! It is not like any fragrance I have had before. I like a more floral aroma. But this is Sweet and reminds me of candy. I have gotten so many compliments on wearing it in public. I would say if you are feeling playful and young this would be a great perfume. But is also wonderful for an everyday if you like to smell sweet. I am so glad that I worked with the company to get this and definitely feel more rewarding that it was such a great scent.
This fragrance was very floral. almost too floral for my taste. Normally as a fragrance warms up to body temperature the scent will become a little more mellow and settle on to the body; however, you may want to combine it with another fragrance to enhance the scent of the perfume.
It's not bad but I thought based on the notes it would be a little lighter and fruity scented. You don't really smell the fruit so much as the floral or almost baby powder smell. It's different but I do think it's growing on me.
I get a lot of floral from this perfume - and I'm not a huge floral fan. It does have nice fruit notes, and it is light. I like it, but I don't love it. Maybe with some time, and more wears, it'll grow on me. Dries down to (yet another) powdery finish, that is soft. Good for spring and summer, light and feminine. Will be good for office, or weekend wear (which is when I use it the most).
I'm INLOVE. I have already purchased the full size bottle! Its sooo amazing and men are very attracted to the scent (that's a plus lol). By far the best fragrance I've received. I will say that I notice none of scent bird scents stay on long but when I wear it from my full size bottle it literally last all day.
I loved it. Sweet, fruity, with a little spice. Some people commented it smelled like an old lady...was this old lady a sophisticated, modern elderly person, bengay user or homeless. Saying the perfume smells like an old lady says very little about the perfume and more about the commenters and their lack of imagination and manners. I happen to know lots of older women that smell nice and take the time to be presentable oppose to the younger generation that make little to no effort.
I LOVED this perfume!!! One of my new favorites and go to's for date night, and for everyday use. Some other users said it was old lady smelling, however I have to disagree. On me it smelled very fresh, fruity, and not too strong. The bottle is also very pretty, will definitely be purchasing a full sized bottle!
So BAD! It reminded me of sitting in the back of church as a kid with the fans blowing all of the old lady perfume in the entire building into my face! I was expecting a nice fruity scent with a little depth but what I got was straight old lady even after a few hours it was just that overwhelming powdery scent you get from older perfumes. Maybe it's just my chemistry but this was just not for me! If you are looking for a fruity perfume this is not it!
The smell was heavenly, but super strong when first put on. The fragrance didnt last long at all. I did love the smell, so did my husband, but the fact that it was so powerful when first spray, the fragrance was gone within an hour. I wouldnt purchase.
Have not seen many bad reviews in this perfume. Personally think it smells amazing. It's a very mature, sweet smelling perfume. This one is really hard to explain. It's not overpowering or sickly sweet, it's just perfection. Seems perfect for a date or a night out, honestly could probably used for an every day.
I was sent this perfume instead of my cologne for the month of May. I was upset upon opening the package, but was relieved to know this perfume smelled good enough to reuse as a gift for my girlfriend. Smells sweet and a great scent to get for your lady.
absolutely LOVE this perfume. not overbearing at all, just the right amount of sweetness and fruit. perfect for everyday use. does fade on your skin but definitely still detectable by the end of the day, although it does linger even longer on clothing. i received many compliments while wearing it. highly recommend!
Absolutely love this fragrance for Spring and Summer! Fruity and sweet, yet not overpowering. It has a nice clean drydown as well. It isn't at all like some of the fruity fragrances that tend to smell like bubblegum. It's definitely a fragrance for a woman. I did feel the need to re-apply after about 6 or 7 hours (put it on quite early in the morning). If you're the type who really enjoys sweet, flirty, girly yet sofisticated scents, that don't come across like a typical "kiddie perfume you'd find at the drugstore, this is definitely for you!
Very very light and fruity sweet. It's nice, but not my favorite. It's not quite enough for me. Would be a good day time scent if you like them on the light side. I liked that it didn't change smells on me like most fragrances do when I put them on. It stays very true.
