Launched: 2017 by Stella MacCartney.
Top notes of mandarin, freesia and lotus flower lend its opening a fresh, morning dew-like quality. At the perfume’s heart, rosy pink peony fuses with geranium for an aromatic, airy, verdant effect, evoking a freshly-cut bouquet. The scent’s base combines the skin-like sensuality of amber, with a rich patchouli: subtle, seductive, sublime.
Our original scent STELLA Peony is back and captures the energy of a blooming English garden, with a timeless vibrancy and sensual quality. Delicate yet daring, STELLA Peony combines fresh peppery florals with the masculinity of amber.
There was always something in the original Peony fragrance that really caught the spirit of what we do at Stella McCartney, and we wanted to bring back that unique scent. It is a beautiful sister to the original Stella fragrance, and I think that is what people yearn for.
Honouring our commitment to sustainability we have substituted ambergris with a modern and environmentally friendly alternative to capture the seductive amber note in the fragrance.
Patchouli is a species of plant that we use to enhance the scent’s earthy depth. What is important is how we make that sustainable – achieved here through molecular distillation and careful sourcing. The precious raw material is responsibly sourced by local farming projects in Java and Sumatra in Indonesia, meaning we can ensure farmers get greater revenues and know our end product is ethical.
