bluebell eau de toilette
bluebell eau de toilette || penhaligon's || beautybar
created in 1978, this is the pure and unadulterated distillation of the scent of bluebell woods. the telltale earthy sweetness of hyacinths rises through the soft citrus head notes and mingles with rose, lily and jasmine at the heart. as it settles the flowers give way to spicy clove and cinnamon and the unique textural base note of bittersweet galbanum.
tremendously evocative of wet earth, moss and rain, it instantly transports you to the woodland, surrounded by dripping leaves, skin tingling with spring.
