Stella EDT

Spring really is the time for scents, it seems - last week, Sinéad raved about her new signature perfume from Giorgio Armani, and now, I'm here to sing Stella's praises.

I think that pretty much everyone who is familiar with Stella McCartney's perfume range is a fan. I've yet to meet a person who doesn't like it, and I think what really speaks for this perfume is the fact that is really does suit any age and definitely most tastes. I am a fiend for very deep, seductive scents, but equally, I do recognise that they're hardly appropriate for every occasion, and I really appreciate the subtle complexity of Stella for daytime wear.

On to the notes. Stella is, by definition, quite a classic rose fragrance; re-interpreted in a new EDT for spring, this is a far lighter version but I really like the top notes in particular - frozen lemon, freesia and mandarin combine for a decidedly citrus burst upon the first spritz. On me, Stella EDT settles to a powdery rose, and the ambergris base note becomes more apparent during the day. I catch it off-guard a lot; on my scarf, on my sleeves and in my hair.

Finally, a word on the packaging. I just adore Stella bottles and this is probably my favourite to date. Polka dots are a personal favourite and I love how understated the pattern in this new bottle is. I also like the promo imagery - the whole aggressive 'product-in-gob' shot is nothing new, but, well, I dig it.

Have you tried Stella? Any other perfume favourites? Let me know below!
