    If you've been following me on Instagram, maybe you've seen that lately I've received 4 new body sprays and one bodylotion from the brand Hollister. This is why I've decided to write again the article I've published last year (on July 21, 2015 !) about Hollister bodycare products.

    ORDER ON THE HOLLISTER WEBSITE ?

    I hesitated for a long time before ordering on the official website. I didn't know anything at all about Hollister but what we see on the Champs-Elysées where there's a very big and mysterious store. Half-naked boys and girls welcoming you with a Californian "What's up ?", the cheapest clothes still expensive and the controversial attitudes of the brands Hollister and its parent company Abercrombie & Fitch who would want its brand aimed at beautiful people only. No fat people, no ugly people welcoming you in front of the stores, no privileged access for crippled persons...

    The price and the shipping
    What I was hesitating for was rather the shipping price last summer : €15 if you just wanted to get one or two body mists and paid shipping beyond €50. Things are different now : if you want to get just two products, shipping's €5 and there are often mouth-watering sales on the website : 2 bodycare products for €20, free shipping, buy two get two free...

    The basic price for a body mist is €13 apiece but the price's often reduced if you buy more than one. Hollister sprays are cheaper than Victoria's Secrets' and Bath & Body Works' (and they smell much better, but that's not the topic).
    Last year I ordered on the 16th of July, the parcel was sent from the Netherlands on the 17th and I got it in my hands on the 21st when it was due on the 22nd. The shipping and the customer service online and by telephone are really reactive. I must have ordered 3 or 4 times on Hollister and my order was always complete and correct with lots of bubble wrap to protect the products.


    Sugary : Crescent Bay & Lunada Bay

    Crescent Bay

    The Crescent Bay body spray is supposed to smell like juicy watermelon, sugary woods and californian poppy. That's one of my favorite smells because it's really sugary, warm and summery. Let's us be clear once and for all by saying most Hollister sprays smell like summer. They release very few wintery smells. Hollister is supposed to be a California-themed store, isn't it ?

    I don't smell any alcohol when I spray the mist as opposed to most VS body mists. What I smell is mostly watermelon which is a strong but subtle smell, not agressive nor overwhelming. My mom can smell sugary woods but I don't know this scent nor do I know poppy smell. Sugar and watermelon are a great mix for this first body spray.


    Lunada Bay

    Fresh nectarin, water lotus and creamy vanilla. Wow, I'm in love with that one. There's a vague fruit scent but I think that the creamy vanilla takes over everything else. It smells like candy floss, vanilla, cream. It smells like candy to me, definitely. A nice green packaging that hides a very sweet and young lady scent.


    Feminine : Solana Beach

    Raspberry, jasmine and white musk mix in a very subtle and chic scent. I can smell red fruit very well in this one and that reminds me of when my mother used to make blackberry pies.

    You can smell the musk very lightly in the end : it makes the whole perfume complete, feminine and mature. For a woman who's not very young anymore, I would advise you choose this one because it relates to perfume much better than all the others.


    Summery : Cool Crystal Shores & Silver Strand Beach

    The Silver Strand Beach bottle is light pink and see-through. When I smell it, I immediately think of a mix of citrusus and peaches. It's a lively, fizzy smell that makes me think of sparkly candy. I can smell coconut and mango which are part of the smell but really, the citruses smell takes over. This one makes me think of bikinis, warmness and a hot day picnic.

    Cool Crystal Shores - The summer edition

    This one smells of coconut, vanilla and passionfruit all mixed in such a way that a summery pattern is created and makes you fall in love with it - at first smell ! If you ever find this one, go ahead and smell it. It's a reassuring smell that reminds me of white sands, of vacation in California that I've never had... I just close my eyes and I'm there - really.

    My opinion about the Hollister Body Sprays

    At the time I discovered these body sprays, I already owned some Victoria's Secret and BBW sprays. I forgot all about them when I smelled the Hollister sprays for the first time. Maybe you shouldn't smell them in the store though because of the perfume that they diffuse.
    If you love sugary, young and feminine smells, these body mists are perfect for you ! I've tried out the Vista Cove one later but I didn't like it at all (Black Currant, Magnolia and Cedarwood) but as for the rest of them... I'm in love.

    I can't understand why almost no one talks about the Hollister bodycare line - maybe there's a lack of communication from the brand. You'll need only two or three sprays for these. The smell will wear off pretty quickly (in about two hours and it can wear off much later according to the skin's pH) which you may find confusing and disappointing but I don't wear perfume outside so I think it's actually perfect !
