Hollister Festival Vibes Fragrance Review

Hollister Festival Vibes Fragrance Review by UK Perfume Blogger WhatLauraLoves

Hollister are bringing the festival vibes this season, quite literally with their latest fragrance release.

Festival Vibes is the ultimate summer summer fragrance but there’s not just one, there’s two; one for him and one for her both inspired by the atmosphere of weekend festival goers in stereotypical, but lush all the same, blue and pink packaging.  They’re fun, energetic and have the cool vibe that you’d expect from a Hollister fragrance.

I had the pleasure of trying out the scent For Her a couple of weeks early and if anything has got me feeling excited for the summer months, its this perfume.

Imagine the scene; you arrive at a festival that’s playing your favourite music.  Flower crown in your hair and bright, mirrored sunglasses shielding your eyes from the sun, you’re beyond happy and ready to have fun.  Fully present in the moment, you’re feeling more energised than ever as you enjoy dancing like no ones watching, snappy selfies and sharing so many laughs with your girls around you.  That’s what Festival Vibes For Her is all about.

Created by IFF Senior perfumer, Steven DeMercado, said that Hollister’s latest release is ‘inspired by the world of the Hollister girl… having fun, hanging out with friends, playing music and really enjoying the moment.’  This fragrance captures this entirely, blending vibrant fruits and feminine florals with a soft touch of musk to create a fragrance that celebrates all of the fun loving moments in a Hollister girls life.

If you love fruity, floral fragrances then this is definitely going to be one for you to try.  It’s a lively and bright scent, opening with sparkling Italian bergamot, fresh quince and goji berries.  A heart of pink peony, delicate osmanthus, vanilla orchid and coral hibiscus give the scent a lush, floral layer, drying down to a base of cashmere woods, creamy tonka and soft musk.  There’s a freshness to this perfume with a surprisingly long lasting dry down, making this the ideal spritz and go day time perfume for the warmer months.

The packaging is young and girly which suits the scent perfectly.  Shaped like a chic, reusable water bottle, the sparkling glass packaging has a tie-dye, soft-touch silicone sleeve

There’s three bottle sizes 30, 50 and 100ml.  The former of which I think would be awesome if you’re going on holiday and want a new perfume to take with you to connect your lovely holiday or festival memories with a beautiful scent.

While I’ve never been to a festival before, I’ve been to many concerts.  Earlier this month, I wore this scent when I went to see Ed Sheeran at Newcastle United football ground.  Seeing Ed live was something that I’d wanted to do ever since I’d heard his first single and it was an EPIC night.  I wore Hollister Festival Vibes that night and now whenever I smell it, it takes me right back to that awesome time.

Hollister’s new fragrance will keep the good vibes going long after the festival season and summer months have ended!

    This sounds like such a pretty fragrance, and I love that they do a 30ml bottle. I always struggle to find perfumes I can pack in my carry-on luggage!
