Hollister Hayden Eau De ParfumTuesday, 12 April 2016 12:00
Just after Christmas I ventured out into the sales with the intention of buying a fragrance that I could use during the week for work, as I like to save my high end fragrances for the weekend and special occasions as they are so expensive! I swoon at the smell of Hollister stores every time I walk past them, so I went in to see what scents they had to offer.
I picked up 'Hayden' as it was on sale and I fell in love with it. I'm a huge fan of scents that a fruity but fresh and that is exactly what this is. Hollister describe the main notes of this fragrance as mandarin, lotus blossom and cedarwood. Mandarin is definitely the strongest note to pick out and this is definitely what makes the scent so fruity. The scent is quite sweet, so if you aren't a fan of that I wouldn't recommend this for you.
I wasn't sure how long the scent would last as it was so much cheaper than my high end fragrances, but I was really pleasantly surprised. I would actually say that this fragrance lasts longer on me than my more expensive fragrances, which is so impressive. I can smell this throughout the entire day without topping it up.
The packaging is very girly and would definitely appeal more to a younger audience. It is very pink and girly, but I really like it!
Hollister Hayden Eau De Parfum is £25 full price for 50ml, which is a steal! You can buy it from Hollister's website here. Have you tried it for yourself? What do you think?
