My daughter gifted me with a bottle of Stella for my birthday. The fragrance is gorgeous, but simply does not last. Within an hour, it's gone. I am surmising that one needs to purchase the lotion to help "layer" with staying power. As Stella is such an expensive fragrance, I'm going to have to buy the lotion too. However, it isn't available on this site.
Absolutely the best perfume I have ever had. I have been wearing it for years now, and never want to change. I have had more compliments from men and women on this perfume than on any other. One man said "You always smell so good!" I took that as a compliment... Wonderful scent: elegant with rose scent but not too flowery or overpowering. Wear it to work, for fun, romantic evenings, even dinner with the girls. Perfect!
