Little Things – Stella Perfume

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a girly-girl. I vaguely remember a time when I wore dresses and skirts, but it was so long ago it feels like I’m remembering another person. Now my style is more Katherine Hepburn than Grace Kelly, although I am willing to give Sophia Loren or Diane Lane a whirl.



But one thing I ADORE is this perfume. I found it by chance when I received a sample from Sephora and was so hooked I immediately splurged on a full size bottle. Sephora describes it as, “A fragrance based on the contrast between the freshness and softness of the rose, and the dark sensuality of amber, Stella is a sophisticated scent focused on an intense sense of femininity.”

I like it because it has a classic rose note that is reminiscent of old-school perfume while being fresh and modern. Also, the scent lingers in a nice, subtle way and is just a little bit sultry. I use it literally every day, even if I’m spending the day alone and working in my pajamas. It’s a little thing that just makes me happy (and it makes my room smell nice, too). And while it’s not super cheap, a bottle lasts me about a year and is well worth the price.

Plus, the bottle is gorgeous.

I have always loved perfume for the same reasons you list. My bottles change from year to year, though. There was one exception to that rule, it was Marc Jacobs, Biscotti Splash, but it was a limited edition thing, so I didn’t have the option of purchasing it again. (It was a huge bottle and I still have some–I reserve it for days that I really need the boost.)

This years fragrance is Viva La Juicy La Fleur, and it smells SO good. I’m a sucker for anything that has jasmine in it. 😀

I loove perfume! Haha! I love how everyone has indivudual scents, and how you associate the person with that scent. Anytime I smell the scent my mum would wear when I was young, I think of her instantly! I love the Britney Spears Fantasy, and Midnight Fantasy perfume. They actually just recently made a purfume that has both of them stuck together, which is perfect haha ! They are quite cheap too! If I could splurge, I would say Marc Jacobs Daisy though, so beautiful!
