I received a small, sample of LILY a few years ago. I would use a tiny squirt, a few times a month and amazingly, the sample has lasted me over 3 years. The tiny sample "bottle" squirted just enough of the fragrance to peak the senses and it was a lovely, clean, light, feminine, without being too girly, scent. My sample ran out a few weeks ago and I have had a very difficult time replacing it because, I suspect Stella McCartney no longer produces this scent. I couldn't find it anywhere and had to settle for EBAY. I purchased a full bottle on EBAY and I now find the scent a bit overwhelming and medicinal. The sprayer on the full-sized bottle applies more fragrance than the sample did. I think this scent is lovely in smaller amounts. In all fairness to the product, if I am correct and this scent is no longer being produced, the fragrance may be turning "rancid" and be passed it prime. As for the bottle-seriously, Stella??? It's awful! Take the cheap, silver, metal away and the crystal bottle is pretty but why did they add that metal? Just awful, flimsy and cheap looking.
