Harvey Nichols, Stella McCartney Perfume Review*

5 February 2014

Hello lovelies, when I had an email pop up on my gmail last week I was very excited as it said perfume. Who doesn't love there perfume?

I was contacted by an agency that work with Harvey Nichols and asked if I'd love to try out a perfume from there Stella McCartney Print collection*. If you would like to view Stella's gorgeous collection on Harvey Nichols you can do HERE. I was able to choose from three different designs in colours from blue, yellow to a cream neutral shade. I went with the neutral and it is in a snake skin pattern. They are limited edition and and inspired by the Falabella bag from Stella's SS13 collection. Shown here...

After wearing the perfume and loving it and the packaging I now need the bag to match right? But back to the perfume.

I received the perfume all boxed up beautifully in Harvey Nichols tissue paper very neatly wrapped. Then Inside the box I got a Harvey Nichols bag which I was cooing over. Crisp white with the gold detailing of the logo with lovely ribbon handles.


Then inside the bag I received the perfume enclosed in a beautiful cream box.


To then open to the gorgeous packaging of the perfume and the gorgeous scented notes occurring under the tip of my nose.


Before I get to the scents how gorgeous is the packaging? Imagine this in the shades blue or yellow if nude doesn't take your fancy. I love how Stella is at the top of the lid in little dots. It is a 30ml sized perfume so not too big or not too small to fit in any handbag for on the go or just to display on your beauty cabinet along with your other favorites. What I do love about the packaging is that it is handbag safe, to not leak all over your contents like some previous perfume of mine has! With the clasp lid that clicks into place you know your not going to waste any product it is safe in its gorgeous little container.

Now the aroma, it is like a opening a book to the start middle and end. You get a whiff of floral the deep rose scent to start with it then goes into woody aroma then finishes with vibrant fruity notes. It is very feminine, modern and classy. I think this would suit all ages and I had so many compliments from wearing this the first day I tried it. I can smell the perfume straight away once sprayed onto me then I can't but that means it is a good perfume and suited to your skin if that happens. Apparently according to a lovely customer that came into my store the other day aha. I do love it though. I would defiantly re purchase this once I have ran out and my boyfriend also complimented me on it and said it was his new favorite! I am a massive lover of Thierry Mugler's Alien and Jimmy Choo it has similar notes with a floral edge. I am not usually a lover of the Rose scent but this has turned me! The rose isn't that strong as it has mandarin notes and amber also. Even if I didn't like the scent I absolutely adore the packaging and looks beautiful on my dressing table amongst my other 30 perfumes! But a girl can never have too many perfumes. Luckily I do love the scent though and will be going on my Christmas list if I run out before. 

If you want to make heads turn and make your nose happy I would highly recommend going to your nearest Harvey Nichols counter and getting a sample of this to whiff if you love the scents I have noted. I am sorry if it makes you want to buy it there and then though I can not be held responsible for your actions. It is priced at £38.00 and well worth it in my opinion.


Have you tried this perfume or bought this yourself? I'd love to hear your thoughts if it is one of your favorites or on your wishlist.

Again I am very grateful for the opportunity to get sent beautiful things to sample to thank you very much.
