We have to hand it to Stella McCartney for creating L.I.L.Y; the ultimate wedding day fragrance.
Combining the sweet, earthy scent of Lily of the Valley with the rich, velvety fragrance of truffles, Stella and master perfumer Jacques Cavallier have done an amazing job recreating the enchanting aroma of a fresh spring morning.
But it’s the hidden romantic message in the carefully blended fragrance that brides are sure to love. In the ancient and utterly romantic language of flowers, Lily of the Valley signifies ‘a return to happiness,’ just the right sentiment to wear on the day you marry your sweetheart.
The perfume’s name also has a touching personal meaning for Stella. L.I.L.Y stands for the nickname her dad, Sir Paul McCartney, had for her late mum; Linda I love you.
L.I.L.Y fragrance EDT, £44 for 30ml, exclusive to Selfridges now, nationwide from 15 February.
