Summary: Do you like the smell of bluebells?- yes?, ok, do you want to walk around smelling VERY STRONGLY of bluebells? if the answer to this is yes, then you'll probably love this fragrance. It is VERY true to the flower. It is not diluted, nor does it *allude* to bluebell, it IS bluebell. In a bottle.
Summary: Penhaligon's Bluebell is harsh, loud, synthetic and imbalanced. Does not develop and would not go away. Simply awful. Beautiful bottle and color though but I don't think I could find any reason to put it on my skin again.
Summary: I was somewhat dissapointed with the fragrance. I have yet to receive a compliment when wearing Bluebell. I have other perfumes I enjoy better and receive compliments about. You don't know unless you try. Oh well.
Summary: The description of this fragrance was intriguing and I really wanted to try it. It goes on smelling absolutely great, and I loved it, for about 15 minutes. It dries down to a very strong clove smell, every other note disappeared. I gave it several tries and decided it is not for me. I would have loved it if it had stayed true to its original scent.
Summary: Love this scent! Mind you, it's not for everyday. When I first ran into this fragrance, it was in my grandmother's bathroom which was full of Penhaligon's products. The top of the counter and then underneath the cupboard was packed...LOL. I smelled every single one until I decided which was my favorite at the time. This was one of them. Smells prim and proper and also of an English garden.
Summary: I have been using Penhaligon for over 20 years. Usually I buy it in England or in the Penhaligon store in New York. But it was so much easier to order it on line. As a matter of fact, I bought two bottles and my daughter in law loved the way I smelled, so I gave her the second one! So happy to give an impuls gift of love.
Summary: I have to give it high marks for staying power, but it honestly smells like soured vase water after awhile on me. It may smell differently on others. It would be nice and/or helpful if Penhaligon's offered sample sizes of their perfumes so you can try before you buy.
