‘The World is beautiful’ is the name of this Kenzo floral fruity fragrance for women launched in 1997. It was created to be an optimistic and cheerful scent, so it has a joyful opening with magnolia, sour notes of black currant and Chinese flower Aglaia Odorata, which seduces and leads to the floral heart of jasmine, cherry blossom, silk tree Albizia and honeysuckle. Vetiver and cedar rest at the base. The bottle was designed by Serge Mansau as pebble shaped with an imaginary flower on top. It is available as 30, 50 and 100 ml edt. The nose behind this fragrance is Daniela (Roche) Andrier.

Le Monde Est Beau Fragrance Reviews

The first day I wore this, I found the top notes very tart and sour - almost acidic. I couldn't stand it! The next day I sprayed a little more lightly, and fell in love with the soft, feminine, floral scent that emerged as the day progressed. I couldn't stop inhaling it from my inner wrist. Once I get past the initial shock, the gentle sweetness is gorgeous. Very work appropriate - but I wouldn't waste the romance of this scent on the workplace. I'll be pulling this one out for brunch dates with my boyfriend.

At first I thought I would dislike it, as top notes were quite green and strong magnolia, but after some time, when middle notes developed, I found it really nice.
Fresh, citrus, delicate flowery, all that is needed for summer!
And the bottle is such a lovely item!

I bought it on a whim in a perfume shop because it smelled like cut grass and I liked the fresh scent and I was desperate for finding a perfume I could call The One.
Actually when I sprayed it on the next day, I couldn't find that crisp, fresh smell wich had seduced me.
It is very fruity and sweet, almost tasty. The raspberry and blackcurrant is what stays on me, and I definitely smell litchi (wich doesn't appear to be in the composition though), but I can't find anything else.
It smells like a quiet summer afternoon : it's too sweet for my taste, it lacks a hint of hesperides, or green, or something to make it more like a spring morning.
So. Still not The One.

It is more of a green sort of fragrance rather than a floral fruit one to my nose! very much reminds me of Vent Vert (old Vent Vert). Roses with green green hay.

This fragrance is associated with a very beautiful memory for me. I was ten years and traveled around Italy with my mother. She used this fragrance throughout the trip and therefore this reminds me of springtime flowers, beautiful views, the streets of Florence and Venice and happiness

From the bottle, smelled like tea to me, iced tea to be exact) Don't know which notes created the smell of tea, but I liked it a lot and want to try it next time.

For me this is definately a rainy day scent, not necessarily to ward off a gloomy mood with its citrusy-soft powderyness, but because I somehow feel this is what someone ought to smell like when the weather is wet and cool.

This is a very nice perfume. It reminds me of tomato plants and grapefruits. This perfume is long lasting. I have been using it in high school and recently I bought it again and I like it as much as I did before. I prefer it better for summer evening, because it is a little to strong for me during the day.

I am so happy, that I finally get this. It was really long story, I tried it first time for months ago and I could not stop thinking about it, but could not find it anywhere for reasonable price in 50 ml bottle. But finally I get it and really enjoying. It reminds me early summer on Crete, a canyon far from crowds with a great view to the sea horizon. Very optimistic, sunny and calm. Longevity is ok, but I would prefer to smell it longer.

How did the Nose do that?
The beginning of the scent makes me smile wide open: it's a green tomato, not mature yet!
Absolutely like in reality :D
A thick scent with good lasting power, I like it :)

P.S. Now I'm reading about the grapefruit in the opening... I definitely detect tomato, 100%, an alpha-female ;) tomato :)

The scent is a bit out of date, still makes an impression.

Edition: you know, my sample was coming to an end and I thought of buying a bottle. So I have it, it's different than in a photo, I mean it's with a flower cap on one side and the bottle doesn't stand straight, only lays :) Spraying the fragrance from the bottle is funnier than from a sample :D because the bottle looks as if it belonged to a grandma, old vintage style, out-of-date and there's this tomato inside :D makes me smile wide open. Unusual stuff. The fragrance, creamy, spicy, yellow-green-black (blackcurrant and basil!) is somewhat funny. Compared to Ca Sent Beau... Ca Sent is different, more stingy, more green, more creamy and very long lasting while Le Monde... is less serious, less green and has less of sillage. All in all Le Monde... joins my favourites - "love" fragrances. Surprising thing is that those older perfumes can be liked so much! I thought I prefer newer ones but... among my top 5 you can find L'Instant, Kenzo's Le Tigre, VC&A's Birmane...

Le Monde Est Beau Kenzo, is my spring / summer option for Dior Dolce Vita.

I'm not sure if its just me or if there really are similarities in the two fragrances, as the only notes in common are magnolia blossom and sandalwood.

IMO, Le Monde Est Beau possesses that same smooth, creamy, elegance found Dior Dolce Vita, however, Le Monde Est Beau springs it up a touch by adding ( what seems to me ) the perfect little pinch of "wet flower garden"

Both fragrances are gorgeous and I love them equally. Dolce Vita for fall and winter and Le Monde Est Beau for spring and summer.

i get more of a floral green with this!
initial burst is uplifting & lip smacking sour cherries and
then mellows out green herbal floral dream
summer all the way with this one!

I was tempted and bought it unsniffed and I will say that the bottle lived up to my expectations :) The juice, however, I find too light and unimpressive and although I like the initial burst of lemon and herbs, something in it doesn't mesh too well with my body chemistry.

Fresh , crispy , sparkling ! I'm crazy about that darling . Can be easily confused with "Ca sent beau" , not because of the smell (completely different, i dislike "Ca sent beau" ) , but because of the shape of the bottle , be careful not to mistaken !
It can fit almost anyone, from the teen , to the mom , to the active granma ( i mean no pejorative). It makes you on a good mood instantly !

Le Monde Est Beau is summer in a bottle for me; a scent with very interesting development, with great delimitation between top, middle and base notes. Not too strong, actually I wish it was stronger, average silage and lasting power, it is nevertheless a very beautiful, calming perfume.
The top notes are just stunning, the most beautiful grapefruit you can wish for, but sadly very short lived.
Middle notes take over, and the scent turns from fruity into a creamy floral, soft and feminine, reminding me of Style by Jil Sanders.
Bottom notes are barely there, but they keep the scent from turning sharp, everything is mellow.
I have a decant of this, and wish to add a whole bottle. It's very classy, delicate, simply beautiful. Smells incredibly natural, starting with the fruits on top and continuing with the flowers and woods, there isn't a single note here to be overdone, or to smell "perfumey".
Really, I think it captures a summer breeze in it, and summer breeze is the trace it leaves behind when you wear it!

I always buy it for my mom, she uses it from 1998. Adorable crispy blackcurrant and citrus notes develop into slightly powdery cherry blossom and mossy-vetivery base. Light, joyful, slightly sour frag! Must have for light-fruity floral lovers. One of the best Kenzo' creations

This a trip! the top notes are just spectacular. a master blend of remote little wild fruits, exotic berrys, white flowers, and citrusy notes. Yes, just spray a little bit and you will see how beautiful turns the world. After 15-20 minutes top notes go away and you just want to run and bring them back...midle notes and dry down are not that bright. They aren't bad at all. In fact it is one of my favorites ever; so fresh, so beautiful, so joyfull. Sweet enough to involve you in an aura of joy and pleseaures like not one else. Unique? Absolutely. For spring? Definitely but you can also use it in an early winter morning. It will make the sun to warm you better. White, light green, pink: these are the colors of the top notes. At the end, it turns yellow, like a ripe lemon and musk. I do not find the cedar in the base. Thanks God, but I read in firmenich webpage that they use a bounch of white flowers from all around the world to build this magnifique essence. Aglaya odorata is the one that give the quality and distinction to the top notes, a a rare oriental little flowerr, that has a particular fruity note. Cherry blosson is there, but you will not smell it clearly. For girls with mature senses and sensitive boyfriends. For ladies of any age with young hards and optimism in their soul. For boys? Well, just a tiny touch in your nose. It will shouw you the traze of your forever girl. The world is beautiful even more after you, "Le monde is beau"

This perfume smells of everything that makes my eyes cry and complicates my live in spring... It is very strident, like a big and colourful daisy; the smell of cut daisies in the market is similar to this one: you must be in the mood for it and have good health. I can also smell dust. I understand why some people love it, but I need a little more warmth; it is actually a sad perfume.

Definitely for young people... This was one of my favorite fragnance that I was using in my early 20s. I could have used it longer but unfortunately it became unavailable in my country. And in those days it wasn't possible to buy from internet. Farewell beautiful, citrusy, light, fresh and definitely unique smell...

I think that this bottle looks really beautiful and poetic. So I tried it on in a perfumery store not long ago. I think this scent really lives up to it's name beacuse it's very expressive and beautiful. I would describe this as a very beautiful and cheerful fruity floral. It's very well made and not at all cheap smelling like some fruit florals can be.
I would picture this scent on a blonde,rather sporty and cheerfull woman who is going to the beach with some friends. For some reason I think of the song Eidelweiss from Sound of Music when I smell this scent xD.

I bought my first bottle of this perfume when it was launched in 1997 and now, 12 years after, I love it even more. It's a light fruity, and I like to wear it during the spring days. For me, it´s the best grapefruit-interpretation and I really believe that the world is beautiful when I'm wearing "Le monde est beau"

What a great fragrance. This one is different that Ca Cent est Beau which has juice that is a little darker. Le Monde est Beau is very citrusy fruity with a lovely grapefruit note--although as I wrote that I realized grapefruit is not listed as an ingredient...well, I smell grapefruit. The grapefruit is not too sharp or bitter-it's just lovely and light. As the perfume wears, the fruit gives way to beautiful florals and it all ends with a woodsy dry down.

I cannot say enough good things about Kenzo perfumes, particularly the older ones, and this one is no exception. If you enjoy perfumes that are a little off of the beaten path and not one you smell on every other person you encounter, I would suggest giving this one a try. It is particularly lovely and appropriate for the spring and summer.

It's a lovely fruity fragrance. On my skin, the top notes are very strong: grapfruit and rather citrusy.

the one I've smelled was a bit raw, sharp in the beginning, floral, I think the word you used, "tart" describes it best. I'm sure the box was the same as in the photo, but I don't know why I remembered it as orange, nevermind :)

This one is a fresh, slighly tart, very expressive and incredibly unique scent, best for spring and maybe for summer. I don't know exactly which other one you mean: Ca Cent Beau or Kenzo de Kenzo.
