A girl becoming a woman. It’s an early spring morning, crisp air on the flesh – and discovery.
One of the most famous English fashion designers of this time, Stella McCartney, presents her second perfume for women L.I.L.Y as an ode to her mother Linda McCartney. Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. is said to evoke Stella’s childhood feelings, memories and love.
It comes from my dad’s nickname for my mum: ‘Linda I love you’. The name is also from the lily of the valley ingredient – I love it as a flower, and so did my mum – it’s delicate, feminine, innocent. It was part of my bridal bouquet. But I also wanted to explore its darker, more masculine side. It’s a woodland flower and I wanted to capture the roots and the earthy side of it.
Due for early 2012, L.I.L.Y. will be opposite of Stella Perfume for women, which is known to be strong and feminine. Created by Jacques Cavallier, Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. was created as a very sensual and adorable perfume made of natural notes and small attention to the design. It comes in a very stylish and glowing bottle made of crystal resembling an old English vase. L.I.L.Y. blends truffle along with lily of the valley and oak moss in the base. These notes make this perfume being pure and innocent.
Stella McCartney L.I.L.Y. is advertized by beautiful Polish model Malgosia Bela. L.I.L.Y. will be available as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum as well as 10 ml roll-on.
