A fragrance by Francis Kurkdjian

A personal journey between Stella and Francis, the scent of STELLA skincare is inspired by elements of the Scottish landscape.

"It was probably a challenge, but I wanted Scotland in a bottle. I was honoured that Francis accepted that challenge and created this scent." - Stella Mccartney

Each ingredient has been scrutinised to minimise our impact on the planet and ensure that our products are suitable for all skin types, including sensitive ones.

“Of all my early memories, none have the same unique freshness to them that my mind conjures up when I think of Scotland.

The sea air circulating through the pine trees, falling off my horse when riding bareback into the bracken, that crack and the scratch – those are priceless moments in my memory bank. And it’s all in these products.”

– Stella McCartney
