Scent to Go: Why I'm Taking Stella McCartney 'Stella' on Holiday

Stella McCartney Stella Perfume 30ml You can’t beat a classic, right? And Stella McCartney appears to know that well, as she’s relaunched her signature Stella scent in brand new bottle sizes. And I, for one, am thrilled - I love the English rose-infused perfume - and now that it comes in a 30ml decanter, I can carry it with me everywhere.

Before you think that a relaunch means that the famous fragrance will boast a new scent, you’ll be happy to know that the notes are unchanged and still harness that rosy, woody dry-down. But this smaller bottle means it’s instantly upgraded to my holiday scent of choice this year, as I can toss it in my carry-on bag without lugging around a heap of weighty glass.

I’m not just sold on the size though, as I’ve long been a fan of this pretty perfume; it’s elegant, light and easily transitions from a day to an evening fragrance. Plus it makes a change from the vanilla unctions I would usually wear on holiday, and the woodiness it releases on warm skin is spot-on for nighttime drinks.

A note to those who find rose perfumes tend to give them major migraines; I’m usually part of that club, but this is the only one that doesn’t affect me. I can’t pinpoint why my sensitive senses don’t react when I wear this scent, but if you love rose yet find you can’t typically wear it, I implore you to give this a spritz.

Stella McCartney Stella Eau de Parfum now comes in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml, with prices starting from £40 for my favourite - the 30ml bottle. You can pick it up at Harrods now.
