Ahh, there's nothing better for summer than a little-sister version of your favorite scent. They're usually lighter, more refreshing and just plain season-appropriate. It appears designer Stella McCartney agrees, since she's launching Sheer Stella exactly for this reason.

Sheer Stella is based on a multitude of rose notes, including Bulgarian rose, Celestial Rose, Rose Absolute and Iranian Organic Rose. Green apple, frosted lemon and warm amber make lovely rose partners in the scent, creating a version of Stella that's absolutely perfect for this time of year.

Even if the smell of roses isn't your thing, you'll fall for Sheer Stella's stunning bottle -- designed by British painter Philip Jones, it's a gorgeous vanity accessory in its own right.

Like the lazy days of summer, Sheer Stella won't last forever, so grab it while you can.
