Stella McCartney’s latest take on her Signature fragrance Stella, is STELLANUDE Eau de Toilette $43.00 1 oz.; 1.6 oz. $63.00; 3.4 fl. oz $81.00 is also available as a Linen Mist $59.00 4.2 oz. STELLANUDE is soft and feminine. It’s meant to be an extension of her lingerie collection.
The top notes in this floral fragrance include Moroccan rose infused with a hint of grapefruit (but you mostly smell the rose). The heart is of tender white peony, and a very slight, spicy hint of pink pepper. It’s the bottom notes of Ugandan vanilla and grey amber that take the feminine to sensual, and enrich the overall scent with modern, sensual allure.
My first impression was that this was just a pleasant, light floral, but by the time of drydown, I’d come to appreciate all it’s facets. It’s not an overly complicated mixture, but it smells enticing. It draws you in for another sniff…and then another…and another. That’s the mark of a wonderful fragrance! It’s almost delicate, but nude doesn’t mean barely there. it is significant enough to linger. One spray and you’re good to go.
And the packaging is lovely. It arrives in a pretty, watery pink, outer carton that is essentially a faceted oval. The only bold accent is a black band along the bottom half of the carton with STELLANUDE spelled out in dotted, silver letters. Inside, the faceted bottle is also colored with a graduated milky pink (almost the color of flesh colored lingerie) and there’s a milky pink, facted plastic cap covering the spray diffuser. The cap also has a silver and black band that mirrors the one on the outer carton.
Another, more novel use of STELLANUDE is in the Linen Scented Mist, meant to be sprayed on fabric and not necessarily directly onto your skin (although there’s no harm in doing so). Spray it lightly onto your clothes as you iron them. Envelop yourself in the scented mist by spraying it over your head, just in front of you, and walking through it. Let it settle onto your clothes, and your hair and skin. Or you can spray it on your lingerie . The warmth of your body make STELLANUDE waft up from your body…sexy and romantic. Spray it on your sheets (or on his) for a very nice way to drift off into dreamland. The Linen Mist is also less expensive, so you can enjoy STELLANUDE , for a little bit less.
STELLANUDE is exclusive to Sephora from now until December 31st and then it will be available in select department stores.
