I think it's safe to say that we all have a list of brands we are just desperate to try and Jo Malone was one of the brands on mine until I had the best surprise from my fiancé's Mum for Christmas; the Wild Bluebell Cologne.
Everything about the Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne just oozes class and luxury. I love the simple but chic packaging and how the glass bottle is mounted inside. In fact I'm still keeping the bottle in the box as of this post - I just can't seem to part with it! Now onto the scent - oh my, oh my. Wild Bluebell has White Musk as the base note (powdery and clean), Persimmon as the heart (milky peach with creamy, clean undertones) and Bluebell as the top note (wild flower blended with crisp, green leaves and the balsamic sweetness of spicy clove buds). The scent is beautiful; fresh and floral with such strength and depth to it that you can really pick out all the different notes. After applying the Wild Bluebell Cologne, the delicious scent wafts around me so I can smell it as go about my day to day tasks. This fades after a few hours as expected from a cologne (due to the high concentration of essential oils, the scent naturally fades quicker in comparison to perfume), however I can actually still smell Wild Bluebell directly on my wrists after 8 hours, which I really didn't expect. I love this so much I decided to wear it on my recent wedding day, so it will always have a special place in my heart for the memories it evokes.
I can now understand why Jo Malone stands apart from the rest - how else would I get to smell like a forest of bluebells? Their range of scents can't be compared to anything else (others include Wood Sage and Sea Salt and Earl Grey and Cucumber) and the presentation makes you feel like you have something really special. I have the 30ml bottle, which costs £40.00, but it is also available in a 100ml bottle for £82.00. I would love to try one of their candles next!
