You know what, I trusted this purchase because of Princess Diana's preference for it, but I'm just baffled at this mixture of scents involved here. It is woody and strangely leathery, vaguely floral, and then ends up smelling like cloves. Why they even call it Bluebell is beyond me. I was hoping for something fresh and floral but that's what I get for buying a scent before sampling it... I do this too often, I should learn by now. An extremely strange combination of nasal flavors that don't belong anywhere near each other if you ask me. I don't feel transported to an English meadow, sorry
I have never actually smelled this scent before, so I making a few assumptions. All I can say is that I bought this as a gift for my mom and she is absolutely thrilled. She was dying to have this perfume after learning that it was a favorite of Princess Diana's. Fitting in with that image, her assessment is that the smell is very refined and fresh, and definitely doesn't smell like your typical run-of-the-mill perfume.
