Hello Stella, you beautiful lady! You have one wicked little perfume nose, you do! It was earlier this year when I first sniffed the mighty Stella McCartney’s fragrances and I have been truly in love ever since. Each of them is slightly different with a unique touch of alternatively layered notes or a different floral petal here or there, but they all go perfectly with the wearer’s (hey, that is me!) personality.
Stella McCartney Summer which I mentioned in this post about my perfume collection, radiates rose scent as the main note, which makes it a gorgeous light sweet floral scent for warmer weather. Lily, on the other hand, is made of the lily of the valley (the deep, forest kind). Stella apparently explained that the acronym L.I.L.Y. stands for ‘Linda, I love you’ – a nickname her dad came up for her mum – how absolutely sweet! Here’s how Stella describes the scent herself:
spring morning, dappled sunlight through the trees and a vision of
delicate lily of the valley. It is the passage of time across a forest
floor. The touch of moss and the darker intensity of truffles. It is
masculine and earthy, but still seductive and sensual.’
