Smell This: 'Stella' by Stella McCartney

One of my friends has been raving about 'Stella' by Stella McCartney for a long time so I decided to test it out on a recent trip on Sephora. The first description that came to mind after smelling it was that it's an intense floral with a swift kick. My friend also recommended that I wait a few minutes and then smell it again because it becomes much sweeter and she was right! This perfume is both a sweet and sultry smell, made from several roses such as peonies, roses, amber and mandarin.

The Eau do Parfum Roll-On is a great deal at $16 (look for it in the bins near the cash registers at most Sephora stores). I've been really trying to watch the dollars and I have more perfume than I can ever finish (it's not like eyeshadow which I keep for years), but I really wanted 'Stella'. The Roll-On is also great for traveling so it will definitely be in my bags for my upcoming trip to Florida.
Now, I just have to stop putting it on so that I don't get sick of it by the time I go on vacation!

I am adding to my cart. I love roll on too because it take me years to finish the whole perfume...thank you for the review.

I am definitely a fan of roll-ons. I use them more than regular perfumes. Enjoy your vacay! If you are in the Orlando area, hit me up...we'll go to MAC Pro!

I'll be on vacation with the fiance and I don't want to bore him, but some other time for sure!

I'm so glad someone else likes this perfume. I read somewhere that someone thought it was very "old lady," but I happen to love it.
