Oooohhhh :-) ........... Oh! :-(
To start, all the scents gather on my skin in a charming airy melange.

The enchantment lasts unfortunately only briefly. Then Wild Bluebell turns on my skin to a somehow hollow aquatic.

In the hope that the enchantment lasts longer, the more often I try it again, unfortunately not fulfilled

Precious delicate nature
Wild bluebell,- a wonderfully fitting name for a fragrance that, for me personally, once again, conjures up a holiday in Sweden.
Because there I am aware, for the first time, I met wild bellflowers, between dune grass on the south-east coast. It made me pause in wonder, so nostalgic, rare, beautiful and wild.
6 years in a row we stop there in July, first stop for swimming, no matter what the weather is like, to welcome the beginning of the holiday, to pause, each one for himself, what has been like and what the coming, current holiday will promise? All impressions in the back of the head, here and there at school, job, obligations and habits.
The wild bellflowers are also part of it, at least for me.
Wild bluebell smells to me exactly like this sensation from arriving at this beach section.
Sea, beach, earth, wood, wind and sun, maybe even rain or odee thunderstorms, dune grass and wild flowers, the smell of damp bath sheets, sun milk skin and satisfaction.
Rather a scent impression, a nasal, poetic painting, instead of a perfume - delicate and beautiful.

Domesticated Version of Penhaligon's Classic
If you're looking for an office-friendly scent that conjures up fields of blue flowers and blustery spring days, Wild Bluebell is a safe choice. It won't make you sniff your wrist in ecstasy, but it is quite pleasant and it's unlikely to offend anyone.

If you compare the note pyramids, Wild Bluebell shares some DNA with Penhaligon's iconic Bluebell: clove, rose, lily of the valley, etc. Where they part company is at the galbanum, which lends an icy green touch to Penhaligon's version, and the rather aggressive hyacinth which is Penhaligon's choice to represent the scentless bluebell flower. In contrast, the Jo Malone uses the much softer bellflower to stand in for bluebell in their compostion.

Penhaligon's version is distinctively lovely and unforgettable to its fans, but detractors find it synthetic and harsh. No one will think Wild Bluebell is hideous, but I'm betting that few, if any, people will embrace it as their signature fragrance. I have both, because as much as I love my Penhaligon's in that lovely Victorian bottle, the Jo Malone is much easier to wear and allows me to have that dose of spring dressed in blue any time I like. As with most Jo Malones, sillage is a bit wimpy and longevity is fair to middling.
