'Stella' was my first love, not only because I could channel Stanley Kowalski and shout her name across the shop floor (I do a mean Marlon Brando!) but because this freshly ravishing fragrance is everything a summer scent should be. Witty, fun and flirtatious, this is a fantastic rendering of the blood orange with all of its juicy energy and a touch of its bitter zest. It lays across a field of white freesias and a pool of sheer and languid musk. She is a great holiday companion and will keep you smiling from sunrise to sunset, at the pool, on the beach, shopping in town and out for moonlit cocktails. She is sling-backs and a kicky skirt and I always image Gina Lollobrigida whenever I sense her presence.
Key notes: Bitter Orange, White Freesia, Sheer Musk
Tocca means 'touch' in Italian and the delightful bottle, based on an antique cognac decanter, to the exquisite embossed metal caps which are, quite frankly, the best in the business, is a masterclass in how to get it right. The scents themselves were my go-to gift for family and friends and even today, some 15 years after unwrapping their scent, my nearest and dearest often ask me where they can find what became their favourite fragrance. This is the mark of a great perfume and I am delighted that we have secured the collection for Roullier White this Spring!
