Washington: Stella McCartney has created a perfume in the memory of her mother Linda.

Linda McCartney, who died of breast cancer in 1998, was Beatles singer Paul McCartney’s wife.

L.I.L.Y, to be launched in 2012, stands for Linda I Love You - a nickname given to the late photographer by the Beatles legend.

Stella incorporated lily of the valley - her mum’s favourite flower - as well as hints of truffle and oak moss for the new scent.

“The truffle was unusual, but I said OK to Stella. 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,” Contactmusic quoted perfumer Jacques Cavallier as telling Women’s Wear Daily.
