The scent celeb fans are head over heels for.

 

Stiletto is a very romantic and feminine scent. The warm vanilla bean and sandalwood notes make it the perfect choice for date night. The bottle is so cute and the fragrance definitely lives up to the fun and sexy packaging.


Olivia Wilde, Sofia Vergara, and Emma Roberts are just a few of the celeb fans of Stiletto By Nicole Amy.

While in school for business and interning at Nars Cosmetics and John Varvatos Fragrances, Nicole Amy created an enticing, sensual new perfume in a fashionable ‘high-heeled’ bottle.

Fashion and perfume have been powerful passions for Nicole Amy her entire life. With the creation of her new scent STILETTO BY NICOLE AMY, Nicole’s childhood dreams have been realized. Marrying a distinctive fragrance and powerful fashion concept for packaging has been part of the creation of this alluring perfume. Stiletto by Nicole Amy features notes of musk with hints of vanilla bean and sandalwood.

An experience that is as beautiful to use as it is to display on your dressing table. The ultimate “scentsation” for any woman who seeks a gorgeous scent and a bottle in the shape of an iconic object adored by so many, a fabulous, stylish high-heeled shoe!
