An (Organic) Rose For Stella
Another year, another limited-edition bottle of Stella Sheer, the summer adaptation of the designer’s classic rose-tinged fragrance. We imagine it must be a daunting task to come up with a new way to refresh an old favorite annually, but this latest effort seems to have come about pretty, um, organically. McCartney purchased an entire harvest of organic roses from an Ecocert-awarded cooperative in the Persian mountains, bringing the hard-to-come-by essence of Iranian organic rose to her seasonal eau. Green apple and frosted lemon open the fresh scent, and its blend of rose notes is grounded by a warm amber finish. If the exclusivity factor isn’t enough to sell you on this one, the beautiful bottle designed by British contemporary artist Philip Jones should do the trick.
