I have a "Summer" version of this one, which I swear is identical to the original "Stella" with one major flaw- it has no staying power. Maybe it's diluted on purpose to make it less strong, but the fact is that I put perfume on before leaving the house and by the time I am at the door, there's no trace of it left. It disappears so fast, I don't even know what to think about it. The bottle is blah too..

Beautiful rose scent that (quoting SO) is perverted enough to be interesting.
Most perfumes give me a headache or nausea, this one doesn't.
Have bough several times.

I bought this in a gift set with the Body Milk. I found the perfume to be quite musky at first but I grew to love it. I received many compliments from wearing this perfume! Highly recommend it.

A nice rose fragrance for people that normally don't like rose fragrances (me). You definitely smell the roses, but there's enough sweetness added in to prevent it from being overpowering and dare I say "old lady-ish." This has become one of my go-to scents for a nice night out.

I purchased the rollerball of this perfume at sephora. Impulse buy while waiting in line lol. Anyway I got home and when I applied it I did not smell anything but rubbing alcohol. I promptly put it back in it the box and in the bag with the receipt. I was so annoyed that I wasted $20(!!!!) on this weak watered down NON perfume. Anyway I forgot about it for a while and when I found it several months later I applied it again and it smelled like fresh cut roses. I was so happy. It is still a weak perfume but I like the rollerball so I can touch up whenever I feel like it. Maybe that's why there is a larger purse spray? cause there is no way this would last through an 8 hour work day, or even a trip to the store.

I love a good rose, but this smells exactly like tbs rose. Sugary, heavy, unoriginal. Save your money and buy any other rose perfume, this one is too one-note and indistinguishable from any other to spend the money on.

Have been coming back to this one for years, have actually worn it since it came out in the UK. For a few months EVERONE did. When the craze died down, I stuck with it.
I now consider it a staple, and try not to wear it too much, as smelling it again after a few months gives me a little thrill. It smells like my twenties, travelling, memories and is almost more a companion than a scent. One that I love, but see less of.

Stella EDP is a rose in bloom on a cool summer's evening. The fragrance inside is as beautiful as the bottle: sweet, but not too sweet; floral, but not too floral. It's lovely.
I think this perfume would be perfect to wear to work; it's the type of scent that leaves an impression without screaming, "I'm wearing perfume today!" People will simply think you smell good.
I see that some people have found Stella to be overpowering - for me, my only complaint is that the fragrance does not last on my skin! :(
I think I may try the Rose Absolute instead in the hopes that it will last longer.

I sprayed this on yesterday and was really hoping to love it. However, it was just too floral on me, and did not agree with my chemistry. The rose was just too strong. The drydown was beautiful however. If it wasn't for the opening notes, this would be something I could wear. Unfortunately this is a no go for me. I thought I would have loved it based on reviews so this is another example of try before you buy.
Edited to add: I gave my sample to a coworker and she had to go wash it off in the bathroom. The overpowering rose scent actually caused another coworker to have a coughing fit. If you don't like roses, then stay far away from this perfume. The top notes are just too strong for me, and obviously others as well!

This is my new go to fall/winter fragrance for when I want to feel "pulled together"
I'm really picky when it comes to my rose fragrances. I like rose blends, more than true rose fragrances. I find the straight rose scents tend to be very migh maintenance, a little too BIG for work but too prissy for nighttime.
Hence the reason I love Stella. It smells like roses, and blackberries with the faintest wiff of lemon to keep it from getting all buttoned up old lady wacking you with a parasol, and then the amber gives it a nice warm base that embraces you and settles the fragrance into something classic and lovely. Equally at home in jeans and a sweater as a dress and heels. It really has become one of my favorites for the cooler months.

I love this scent! It's so unique and original. To me it smells like blackberries, incense, and a hint of sweet roses. So lovely :)

My signature scent! I LOVE this and i've never smelled anyone else wearing it. If you're looking for something different, you should give this a try. It's distinct and floral, yet on the lighter side. I think the main notes are peony and rose. It just smells sexy! I will warn you though, it it does bear a cheap resemblence to Shania that you can buy at Walmart--ha!

Gorgeous wintery smell, I love it! It's very rosy yet not sickening! Excellent staying power, you can smell it the next day

I think this is a perfect rosey scent, but it just disappears an hour later. What a pitty. I couldn't believe the non-staying power at first. I bought it and returned it a couple of days later. Again, what a pitty, such a gorgeous fragrance...

This is so expensive for my price range, I got the special edition one in a pretty flowered bottle for $60, a 1 oz bottle. However, it smells beautiful! The SA at sephora recommended it to me when I tried to explain my taste in fragrances. I was looking for a sig scent, this still isn't it because I'm super picky, but it's lovely. The staying power isn't that great on my skin, of course it stays on my clothing for hours though. It's just so pretty, so feminine. Another one of my faves is burberry brit, and I'd say this scent is more girly. Try a sample.

I'm so disappointed. I researched perfumes for a couple of months before deciding on the first fragrance I have purchased in years. After reading the fab reviews of Stella, and thinking rose might be a great way to go, I went to Macy's to get Stella. They didn't have it but I stuck with my choice and they ordered it for me. I was so excited when it arrived. I sprayed it on my wrist and immediately thought, oh I may have made a mistake. But I know that you have to wait for many perfumes to settle down before judging. So after a while I thought maybe I could tolerate it. I walked past my husband and he said, "did you just spray some weird air freshener?". Well, I was heart-broken to have spent so much money for something I am not goin to use. Some people have enough disposable income that it might not matter...but I put a lot of thought into this and feel like a fool for not finding a way to sample it first.

Treated myself to this after smelling it on my friend. It's bloody gorgeous!! I am not a fan of rose scented products usually but this is really lovely and not "in your face". A really pretty fragrance, particularly for summer.

I love everything about this! It is great when I first spray it on and then it gets even better later. I never thought I would like rose but in this is works. There is a sweetness and warmth to it that is terrific. I love the bottle it comes in, it is so pretty. I first bought this in a roller but then I bought the full size spray so yes, I have already purchased and will again.

This is my go-to ~more sophisticated~ fragrances as my daily go-tos tend to be on the sweeter, more vanilla side. I actually didn't care too much for Stella when I initially purchased it. I think I had opted for it strictly because my a couple of my girlfriends had worn it and I thought it was a pleasant scent on them.
Initially, a little too robustly floral for me. Maybe a little sharp in the bold rosewatery overtones? I'm not even sure where this visual originates from, but reminds me of flowery lily pads . . . yeah. But within an hour or two, the oils kind of meld into my skin chemistry (or whatever it is) and becomes a more tolerable pretty feminine scent.
As I'm not really a fan of the more grown up womanly fragrances, such as Chanel No. 5, this is about as "fancy" as I'll ever! Not sure if I would necessarily purchase this, but I've been using it quite regularly.
There's a scent at Anthropologie that's nearly identical to it, not sure which one, but just FYI.

I'm a big fan of Stella herself, and a HUGE fan of roses. Put that together...I love it :)
