Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. Absolute

April 11, 2013

New season means the perfect time to change up the fragrance wardrobe… my recent love has been Jo Malone Earl Grey and Cucumber (with a spritz of Molecule 01). But I feel like it might be nice to mix things up and try something new…and what better way to do so than with a bit of Stella McCartney…


Now, I am very lucky to have my very own monogramed version of of the latest addition to the Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y family….with L.I.L.Y Absolute.

The bottle is just stunning – I adore the crystal middle with the metal outside – making it the perfect combo of feminine and masculine, which is also reflected in the fragrance.

This is a rich floral – and Absolute is a more intense version of the orginal L.I.L.Y – this one has new notes of ambroz and dry woods to give it a darker side.

The note break down is as follows…

Top Notes: Infusion of Black Truffle, Black Pepper Essence
Heart Notes: Fresh Lily of the Valley, Pink Pepper, Amber
Base Notes: Oak Moss, Patchouli Essence, Ambrox, Dry Woods

I love pepper and moss notes in fragrance and I love how these combined with such intense florals really balance things out. On first sniff it feels very intense floral but the dry down definitely has a more masculine, powdery side to it that I love…

I may just have found my new Spring fragrance!

Available from Escentual.
