JO MALONE describes Wild Bluebell as “An imaginative scent, drenched in the delicate sweetness of sapphire blooms. And wild, because it’s a pretty quirky take, inspired by a wickedly whimsical, contemporary fairytale starring Wild Bluebell herself. With persimmon, lily of the valley and eglantine, its lush transparency is decidedly naughty…but nice.”
- TOP: Bluebell – Gives the impression of wild flowers created through a blend of aromas: crisp, green leaves, spicy clove buds with a balsamic-sweetness and a slightly marine accent.
- HEART: Persimmon – A milky-peach flavour with zesty, orange undertones.
- BASE: White Musk – Creamy musk adds a light, earthy and woody sensuality to the composition. The white musk accord is like the underskirt of the fragrance, it amplifies the qualities of the heart and top notes, making them bloom on the skin.
The Wild Bluebell Range:
- Cologne – 30ml, 100ml
- Body Creme
- Body & Hand Wash
Suggested combinations by Jo Malone:
- Nectarine Blossom & Honey adds a succulent, juicy sweetness.
- Vanilla & Anise envelops with sensuous warmth.
The Event: Previously I attended the event introducing the limited edition Sakura Cherry Blossom. This time, before I walked into the store, I was stopped by the scary looking promotional picture. But the purple and white macaroons drew me in…Once again, guests were treated to a mini hand massage. This time the Wild bluebell body and hand wash was whipped into a thick foam with a hand-held battery operated milk frothing gadget. The thick foam was applied to the skin. The soap is wiped off with another damp cloth and your choice of body cream is applied to your arms. The massage was once again very brief and over way too fast!
There was a promotion for invited guests. Purchase 100ml of the Wild Bluebell and if you purchase an item from a selected group of fragrances, you get a discount.
Verdict: I did enjoy myself this time…maybe it was the champagne being served? In case you are wondering, I did walked away with a bottle of Wild Bluebell…alcohol and shopping is a bad combination!
