In folklore, it is said that wearing a garland of bluebells compels you to speak the truth. Hang them on your bed and they’re saidto ward off bad dreams. However, they do not bring out the best in bees, whose criminal fraternity can be found chewing holes in the baseof the tubular bell and sipping thenectar before buzzing off without pollinating the flower. This phenomenon is known as‘stealing’ and is not to be encouraged, should you come across any bees that looklike they might be troublemakers.
At Jo Malone London, we wanted our Wild Bluebell Cologne to capture theflowers’fresh, earthy sweetness, layered with a delicate dewiness,and to summon that mood of spring. The Britishlove of bluebells is a romance that will last for lifetimes to come.
