    Default New: Stella Mc Cartney- Stella In Two: Peony and Amber

    Just had the presentation of Stella In Two!
    Peony (eau de toilette)
    The fragrance: a woody peony
    COOL - peony, black pepper
    VERY "IN" - Patchouli, wood, amber
    more commercial then the first Stella

    The bottle: a vintage squared bottle, in a pink dégradé

    Amber (solid perfume)
    SEXY, ADDICTIVE - amber

    The solid perfume can be put ON the eau de toilette to make it unique, or worn it by itself for a sexy impression

    The body line: bio, made of fig extract
    After the Stella body line succes, they are currently preparing the release of a bio skincare line for 2007.

    And by mixing the eau de toilette with the solid perfume you get...the first Stella eau de parfum !

    The concept is very innovating, I think, the customer has the opportunity to create and mix his own fragrace, the bottles, the packaging and the ad are amazing. They are sold separately, and I wonder how many of the customers are gonna mix the Amber with another of their perfumes!

    More commercial than the first Stella? Is that possible? Stella is HUGE, at least in America, possibly the most successful first fragrance launch for a designer in I-can't-remember-when.

    Clearly Stella McCartney is sticking to what she's had success with; amber and peony are key notes in the original Stella scent. How close are these to the original Stella? This whole concept really just looks more like an ancillary product to the original scent than a wholly new fragrance to me.

    I only tried Peony, but it was fairly similar to the floral accord in the original Stella. Well, the rose in Peony has a pronounced fruity quality, but overall I cannot say that it was dramatically different. I was given a blotter without knowing what the fragrance was on it, and my immediate response was Stella, or some version thereof.

    Stella loves roses, and it seems peony is an ancient of the rose, so this explains everything Get into (In TWO) Stella's universe!
