STELLA by STELLA McCARTNEY 50ml
The first eau de parfum from Stella McCartney was launched in 2003, in collaboration with YSL Beauty. It was created by perfumer Jacques Cavallier.
Relaunched, with new packaging in 2014, the new campaign features the famous pout of model Lara Stone, photographed in London by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The campaign includes a video clip with music by all female band, Warpaint.
The composition of the fragrance is unchanged.
Beautiful and unapologetically feminine, STELLA’s scent composition is approachable and enduring.
Soft rosy floral top notes drive the fragrance, subtly balanced with sharp, fresh mandarin essence and light peony flower.
Intensifying and elongating the opening notes, the heart is pure rose, to represent absolute femininity.
Stella’s base notes give a strong, sensual finish. Resonating up through the rose accord, the masculinity of the amber contrasts the floral side, making it bold with a sensual finish.
The fragrance is contained in a faceted bottle inspired by an amethyst crystal, radiating an ombre of plum hues designed by Stella McCartney.
Stella by Stella McCartney is a sexy, seductive fragrance based on the contrast between the freshness and softness of roses, and the dark sensuality of amber. Other notes include peony flower and mandarin.
Cruelty-free and vegan-friendly.
Top Notes: Mandarin, Rose & Peony
Heart Notes: Rose absolute
Base Notes: Woody ambers
Born and raised in London and the English countryside, Stella McCartney graduated from Central St Martins in 1995. A signature style of sharp tailoring, natural confidence and sexy femininity was immediately apparent in her first collection and after only two collections, in 1997, she was appointed the Creative Director of Chloe in Paris and enjoyed great success during her tenure.
Stella McCartney launched her own fashion house under her name in a partnership with Kering as a 50/50 joint venture and showed her first collection in Paris in October 2001. A lifelong vegetarian, Stella McCartney does not use any leather or fur in her designs. Her collections include women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, accessories, lingerie, eyewear, fragrance and kids.
Stella McCartney now operates 51 freestanding stores in locations including Manhattan’s Soho, London’s Mayfair and Brompton Cross, LA’s West Hollywood, Paris’ Palais Royal, Milan, Tokyo, Shanghai and Beijing. Her collections are now distributed in 77 countries through 863 doors including specialty shops, and department stores, as well as shipping to 100 countries online.
We offer NZ’s best prices for a discerning market. Enjoy prices that are a cut above bargain basement and well below department stores. Our fragrances are the genuine article, but it is the integrity or quality of the perfume that matters. There are many reasons why perfumes spoil, often well before they are purchased by the consumer. Heat is the biggest culprit (that we term baked, like wine).
Many perfume discounters use sea freight for a month or so without climate control in a metal container ( New York to Auckland) plus however long they sit on the dock. At Designer Direct we only use Air Freight. Costly but your nose will love you.
