STELLA by Stella McCartney

For as long as I can remember I have been into my perfumes. For me I find that there is something really elegant and actually quite sexy about wearing perfumes, I personally love them and I'll always spend money on them....if I can afford it.

I had wanted to purchase STELLA by Stella McCartney for a while after having a smell of it just after my birthday early last July. However the price did scare me a little, as at the time I was being good, or trying at least. Therefore, a number of months later a little promotion in Boots during March this year finally persuaded me to pick it up, STELLA was finally mine!

STELLA by Stella McCartney




This perfume is very much based around the top note of rose, however I find it is not artificial in any way as many rose scented products can often be. To balance out the soft notion of a rose there is a contrast of amber notes within the perfume which I think for me adds a slightly more masculine tone to the perfume which is something I do quite like.

Overall this perfume is a joy to own, I find it lasts well throughout the day which is something I look for as spending £50 or more I really do want something that is worth my money. I may be buying my mother a bottle of this for Christmas this year as I know she is very fond of it too.

Prices do vary depending on the size that you buy, with STELLA being available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml.

    1. Yes, the Stella Summer bottle is gorgeous!! It is most likely cheaper as it contains either less alcohol or none at all, I can't quite remember xx
