Essence of Bluebell?

A few people have asked about research that was carried out into the scent of native bluebells, as featured on "Wild Things".  There's a nice piece by presenter Trevor Dines on the Plantlife Blog, mentioning the research team at Bangor University. Maybe we'll see the results published in New Journal of Botany, BSBI's scientific journal? It would be fitting, as for many years the bluebell was BSBI's emblem. The logo we have now is a stylised version, but I think you can still detect some "essence of bluebell" in there - do you agree?
