Bright, modern, unique and irreverent. A celebration of individuality and adventure. This pretty much sums up the new Summer 2016 fragrance launch from Stella McCartney, from its metallic, playful bottle to its multi-faceted scent.
Stella’s philosophy is that fragrances and cosmetics should enhance each woman’s unique, inner beauty, not distract or overpower it. POP is a liberation from a one-size-fits-all mould and offers us a unique and bold scent for the Summer. What I really like about this new Eau de Parfum is that it is a step away from those clichéd, super-sweet, fruity Summer perfumes. It does have the vibrancy of floral tuberose but is layered with sandalwood to create a woody undertone. The bright, crisp tuberose still shines through but the fact you then get a hit of the unexpected sandalwood makes this scent unique and a more mature statement to wear.
The bottle itself is a combination of bold yet balanced attitudes with the arrangement of minimalist shapes and the explosive metallic pink cap. The whole appearance is chic yet a little bit frivolous at the same time and is a beautiful Summertime scent if you are looking for something a little bit different.
The new Stella McCartney POP fragrance is available online now (from £42 – £74).
