Stella by Stella McCartney Perfume Review

Recently I was gifted the Stella by Stella McCartney perfume in the form of a gift set. I received the Eau de Parfum and the Body Cream and the reason I got them was that I had mentioned that I love the way that the perfume smells.

The perfume is a mostly rose-based scent that has a touch of sweetness in it and lots of freshness. It’s a feminine young rose rather than one that smells old and like your grandmother.

The only thing is that the body cream doesn’t smell like the perfume and neither last long on the body! I have the Eau de Parfum and I have to say that I’ve got Eau de Toilettes that last longer than this. If you’ve ever sprayed one of the mini Stella’s on yourself at Sephora, you should know that the perfume in the small bottle smells different than the perfume in the big bottle.

In any case, it’s a beautiful perfume and if you can deal with its evanescent nature, you might like this scent. I still spray it on everything.

    This is my absolute favourite perfume of all time. The body cream and scent are meant to be layered, much like the Prada line. They compliment eachother rather than mirror the scent.

    I’m also a huge fan of Stella; it’s been my scent for about three (four?) years now. I have the little rollers of eau de parfum from Sephora since I’m always on the go, but I agree that it fades quickly. Which is another good reason to be carrying them around.

  3. Hey, I think it is great you make the time to do these. They are very helpful. Hope you are having fun.

    Kimberly – You are probably right. I wanted the perfume to make the scent last longer, but I now realize that it might just last longer but smell slightly different.

    Chipped Red Polish – this was my scent for about a month, and I think I love it for its light and airy quality which I guess is also what makes it fade…

  5. Thanks for the review. I was hoping to find more info on this fragance.
