Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. Perfume

Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. - eau de parfum for women

L.I.L.Y. by Stella McCartney Linda I Love You - "L.I. L.Y. is a journey through the senses. It begins with the smell of a spring morning, dappled sunlight through the trees, a vision of delicate lily of the valley. It is the passage of time acress a forest floor. The touch of moss and the darker intensity of truffles. More masculine and earthy, but still seductive and sensual."

Stella McCartney Lily
The latest fragrance from Stella McCartney.

The Bottle
The bottle, inspired by English cut-crystal vases, is encased in a double, silver metallic frame like a picture frame collecting memories. A meeting of vintage glassware and modern art where the facetted glass reflections take on the light grey-pink brillance of the fragrance within.

The Fragrance
The fragrance begins in the radiant brightness of spring and leads you to the rich, dark, more masculine earthiness of autumn. It is a very textured fragrance, magnetic and sensual, capturing the tension when two contrasting moments come together. L.I.L.Y. is never overpowering, it adapts to the person who wears it.

Stella McCartney
"Lily of the valley is the essence of spring. The purity of white flowers suspended from delicate green stalks. The symbol of a new beginning. It is a name that represents an emotion. A happy childhood spend in the English countryside. It makes me think of my Mum. Her nickname from my Dad was L.I.L.Y., Linda I love you." -- Stella McCartney

Find Your Perfect Scent
Perfume experts, designers, and fashion-savvy women reveal the secrets to discovering the fragrances that suit your style.

Modern & Sleek
If you begin each season with a shopping spree at Calvin Klein and choose a clean line over a flouncy hem every time, then it's probably safe to say that you've got a streak of modern and sleek like stylist Tiina Laakkonen, who often goes for pieces from Comme des Garçons and Céline. For your fragrance counterpart, lighter, more subtle scents will complement your minimalist taste. Florals and citruses will do the trick, as will new, clean-smelling blends topped with lily. Try Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y, and apply it like the designer herself: "I dab a bit behind my ears," McCartney says.

Strike a Chord
Flowers and fruits are lovely, but some of the newest fragrances for fall contain notes that were never considered beautiful.

Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. Perfume
The name of this scent is its main note, and also an acronym that Paul McCartney used as a nickname for his first wife: Linda I Love You. The addition of truffle gives the scent an earthy, ribald quality. "There are not many luxuries when you're a vegetarian," Stella McCartney says, "so when it's truffle season, I'm like, 'Woo!'"

Perfumes featured in this article:
- Lady Gaga Fame
- Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y.
