    Default Delicate by Boadicea The Victorious - Your Thoughts ?

    Has anyone tried this yet ? My attention was drawn to this as it's a bluebell scent - heavy on galbanum.
    The only other I can think of is Bluebell by Penhaligon's . Apparently inspired by Kate Moss ( who also wore Penhaligon's Bluebell ) and also worn by Michelle Obama.

    I haven't tried this line yet, but Delicate certainly sounds nice. The bottles are gorgeous!

    I have been thinking about bluebell scents and I was wondering if this is similar in any way to Bluebell by Penhaligon's. I may have to sample this one.

    I tried it and liked it pretty well. It's less strident than Penhaligons. The drydown is kind of linear for me. But I think it is worth looking into if you like Pen.

    Thanks Kumquat- hmmm - less strident than Penhaligon ? Do you mean it's not quite as piercing greenish to start ?

    Yes, I'd say it's a bit more low key.

    Bluebell by Pen being an EDT doesn't really last too long -I do wonder how long lasting this will be. The 50 ml Delicate bottles are already backordered at luckyscent - possibly something to do with the fact Michelle Obama wears it !
    I feel a bluebell phase about to strike !

    My mother calls the San Joaquin Valley - "Death Valley " - so it near enough to Death Valley but not quite ! It's very dry here. I will try it out !
