Stella McCartney has announced the launch of her latest fragrance, dedicated to her late mother. Entitled L.I.L.Y, the name stands for ‘Linda I Love You’, which was the nickname given by Stella McCartney’s father, Sir Paul McCartney, to his late wife Linda.

Master perfumer Jacques Cavallier of Firmenich, who worked with McCartney on her floral signature scent, Stella, explained his surprise at the decision to infuse the perfume with a note of truffle.

“The truffle was unusual, but I said OK to Stella,” he is quoted as saying. “We used natural extract of truffle, and I actually told the suppliers we were working with that the extract was for a restaurant! I didn’t want to let people know what we were doing.”

McCartney, who described the arrival of truffles at a dinner table as being “sexy,” also revealed the sentimental meaning behind the fragrance’s name.

“It comes from my dad’s nickname for my mum: ‘Linda I love you,’” explained the designer, speaking of Sir Paul McCartney’s moniker for his late wife Linda.

L.I.L.Y also features notes of lily of the valley and oak moss. A body lotion and shower gel will also be available. Prices range from $25 – $100.
