Reviews and Problems with Stella McCartney Stella In Two Peony
Showing 1-10 of 10
Not what I expected
14 November 2010
Summary: I thought I was buying Stella's Peony perfume, but that is not what I got. The bottle looks the same as the Peony I purchased at a Saks few years ago, but (again) that is not what I got. This version smells fine (not as good as Peony), but the scent dissipates quickly and does not linger on you skin.
Summary: I was in 'two' minds about buying this. I was more into citrusy fragrances but few have any lasting power. I never really bothered or considered Stella in two since it came out, mainly due to my experience with the original Stella which gave me a headache. I'm now leaning towards more spicy but modern fragrances. Anyhow, I ended up getting the Xmas set for a good price.
Summary: Received a sample 'round xmas time and came to really like the In Two Peony fragrance. It's not harsh and has a delicate subtle aroma, Stella McCartney's mockingly tasteless one-legged necklace homage to her recent ex-stepmother however turned me off of ever purchasing anything offered by the designer.
Summary: hmm... the hubby likes it. im so-so about it. on me its a very strong floral scent and the dry down is.. fruity, citrusy almost, and im not a big fan of that. but i guess the husband likes it because its something diff. i normally go for "food-y" scents like perfumes w/ strong vanilla base notes. it doesnt last very long though...
Summary: I kept coming back to this light new baby of the season. I have the peony perfume... not the amber solid. Perfume does nicely.. it changes from initial spray. It's from the same family of magical florals as Forever and Ever.. but it's not as incredible. If you are ready to go to the next level of this type of scent and knock everyone's socks off.. Go to the Dior counter and demand a bottle of Forever and Ever.. If you are happy with this, good on you, too.
Summary: From the Nordstrom website: Another facet to the In Two fragrance family, the solid perfume concentrates the sexiest ingredients of In Two. The notes are dominated by the scent of amber, and infused with patchouli and cedar wood. This solid perfume can be layered over the eau de toilette to change and personalize the scent.
Summary: Hmm... I'm sort of disappointed. I like Stella and that was the first rose fragrance that I've ever liked (it also motivated me to find some other rose fragrances which I like, like Bvlgari Rose Essentielle edp)... I think that Stella in Two Peony has a lot in common with Stella edp because Stella has peony notes, too. But Stella in Two Peony is like a pale shadow of Stella - very weak and not very impressive.
Summary: I really dont know why Stella decided to market another fragrance so similar to her original Stella. This smells very, very close to Stella EDP, because it is basically a peony scent, which is very apparent in Stella. If you already have Stella EDP, i wouldnt recommend buying this one, but if you ran out of Stella and would like something similar but "with a twist" - this may be just it. "In Two" is the same scent, only without the rose note.
Summary: This scent is very light (so light that I had to really stick my nose to my wrist to take it all in) and not offensive at all. But it is entirely forgettable. It smells very similar to most other floral perfumes that are being sold today. To top that off, its only a eau de toilette, so this seemed to fade very quickly. The packaging is cute (a square light pink bottle) but not that easy to grip. The scent reminded me of a nice smelling shampoo.
