Stella- Eau de Parfum
4.0

4 months ago

I usually find rose perfumes too old and dusty smelling, but this one is fresh! I can smell the rose and tangerine, a light amber and some baby powder. Lasts well on me, around 6 hours. To the person who brought on ebay and found it lasted only 30 minutes, you may have a fraud/watered down copy. People refill old bottles with watered down versions of the real thing. Try sampling in a department store and see if you get only 30 minutes, or whether it lasts longer to find out. Top Notes - rose oil, peony, tangerine Heart Notes - rose Base Notes - amber

WHY is it that every time I find a frag that could be my signature scent, it is discontinued? Why would ANY house make something as perfect as this one and subsequently discontinue? It is incredibly popular as evidenced by the elevated prices on ebay (since that is the ONLY place you can buy this). I paid 60 for about 1/2 inch in the bottom of a 3.4 oz bottle (and that was a DEAL)! I have even written to the company about the high demand hoping they will consider releasing it (AS IS NOT REFORMULATED). Fat chance but worth trying. I cannot stop sniffing my wrist. If I had to pick only one perfume out of my stock of 300 plus, it would be this one without a second glance. It is simply stunning deep rose. I am not yet that great at talking about the notes, but this one is simple actually. Just a dominant deep rose with what smells like a great citrus and musk maybe? SO GREAT. So, I love this so much, but cannot afford the 200.00 plus for a bottle. It is hard to justify especially since Stella smells much like it (only weaker). The old Stella with the silver lid (pre-2003) is almost as great as this one, but not quite as great projection or longevity. That one also is difficult to find. All the good/great frags either reformulated to nothing or discontinued. Do they not want to make money? Anyway, the Stella EDP that's being sold today is exactly like a completely watered down version of Stella original. People are still buying the new version with the gold neck. Why? When you know it is less than half as good? Perhaps if customers stopped buying the horrible watered down reformulations, we may see real perfume make a comeback. If I was able to have an endless supply of any frag, this would be it. The Rose absolute is becoming more and more difficult to find. That means that the price is only going to go up over time. Snag one while you can. You won't regret if you like a dark rose scent with just the right amount of everything!

A few years ago I started my obsession with collecting perfumes that I love. This is one of the first items that I purchased on eBay. This had potential to become my signature sent but for the fact that it only lasts on my skin for 45 minutes no matter how much I overspray. In my opinion it is one of the best smelling perfume since Chloe but that longevity kills me. It's so bad that I'm on here reading other reviews to see if everyone has this problem or if I was sold a fake. If I'm the only one with longevity issues I might repurchase this just in the event mine is a fake. I'm actually hoping that's the case because since that time that I bought this I have purchased three other Stella perfumes and all three of them last at least half a day. This one is the only one that I have longevity issues with. 45 minutes at best is Criminal. So I'm on the mission to read all your reviews to try to determine if what I have is a fake. I love the aroma if it only lasted
