I was afraid it was going to be too sugary sweet for me but it's not. It's actually a nice sweet scent that is not overly the top. I put it on at 6pm last night before going to work and now, 16 hours later at the end of my shift, I can still smell it.

I love love love this scent on me. I'm not good at describing notes but it smells like apples to me. Like a floral fiji apple. It totally works for my body chemistry and it lasts a long time too. I work 12 hour shifts and at the end of the day, I can still smell it and it's strong.. in a good way. It especially lingers on my clothes and it smells heavenly.
Fragrances -Stella McCartney - Stella Eau de Parfum Roll-On

I bought the 4 piece gift set because I am so in love with Stella McCartney's Stella EDP. I have the 100 ml bottle and the 30 ml bottle as well. The roll on is a great invention. Very handy in my purse but not that I really need touch up all the time. I've been wearing it for 6 hours now and I can still smell it. Stella Eau de Parfum for me is the best amber and rose combined. I was afraid rose fragrance means smelling like an old lady but it's not it at all. It's very youthful yet sexy scent.
My sister bought the 50ml at Sephora for $65. Initially, I wasn't liking the first smell but the drydown was fabulous! A week later, I grabbed a bottle for myself at Sephora and even when as far to get the 100ml and 30ml online to put in my purse. However, wearing it yesterday for the 3rd time, I realized that the perfume only last like an hour or two. After that, it smells.. nothing... like i never wore perfume. Disappointed! I spent so much money. I will continue to use my bottles though, I just need to reapply. If not for the lasting power, this would have been 5 lippies. Oh well, Stella by Stella McCartney is still my number 1.

I bought this in 100ml yesterday for around 86 bucks in Sephora and I'm really loving it. I'm not much into flowery perfume because it reminds me of my grandma.. or any grandma.. lol... but this has been getting reviews and I really liked it when I sniffed it for the first time yesterday. So far, it's been a keeper. We shall see how it holds up. EDIT: Really love this perfume so I bought the special 4 0.33 roll ons and the 30ml from sephora to put in my purse. I always get compliments when wearing this and everyone wants to know what I'm wearing so they can run out and get it. =)
My bf smelled it on and me said I smell like his grandmother. It's a no no for me. :-P
I love the smell, I really do. It's the scent I've been using since I bought it 2 weeks ago. I noticed that the first few mins it is really really strong but it tones down to a perfect scent that goes well with my body chemistry. However, I took the bottle on a trip going to Minneapolis (I'm from NYC) and the bottle leaked! Fortunately, I was able to exchange the bottle at Sephora with no problem. Would definitely buy it again if I run out.
The staying power of this perfume, like other people has said, is definitely not the greatest but after a 12 hour shift of my work and I'm getting out of my clothes, I can smell a whiff of it lingering around. It's a nice smell, in fact, it smells so good without being overpowering. My problem though I might be the only one who notices it (which is not a bad thing necessarily but I don't want a perfume where I smell the same then what's the point?) but who knows. I just got it yesterday and worn it 2 days in a row and loving it. I still have to wear it around boyfriend. We shall see what he says.
The reason I say I won't buy this product again is because I have a 3.4 ounce bottle and I would probably never finish it since I have other fragrances and other lemmings.
I smelled this in Sephora and loved it. Didn't buy it though because I wasn't sure if I was really willing to pay the price ($42 for 1 ounce). However, while waiting for my boyfriend to get off work, I stumbled to a fragrance store next door (28th and 6th Street - Manhattan) were they were selling it for wholesale price. I got the bottle for $23 dollars. Been wearing the perfume for 12 hours now (I'm at work) and I can still sniff it here and here. Not sure if this is actually work appropriate (I work in a hospital) but I definitely love the smell. I took a lippie off because I'm still looking for that one (the one) smell. =D
I'm usually a MAC or Stila girl when it comes to eyeshadows but I got this and Taffy this weekend and I have to say.. I am soo in love with Illusion. It looks really nice and it shows up either wet or dry on my NC20 coloring. Love this and I would buy this again over and over. I think I'll be using this everyday for the summer. :)
Gorgeous packaging and color. It's becoming one of my favorite lipstick for it's texture and overall quality. And I love showing the packaging to people cause it's so elegant. :)
I love Sprout smudge on crease, with Jest as wash and De Menthe to line. :) Very pretty look.

I like to use De Menthe as line with Jest as wash and Sprout smudge on crease. It's a very pretty look and my fave from MAC. :)
I like using this as base, with De Menthe to line and Sprout smudge in the crease. My fave look from MAC! =)
Very pretty color. My second fave from MAC after Jest. =)
