Vera Wang Hippie Princess Eau de Toilette: Review

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
For Summer 2015, Vera Wang is adding a new fragrance to the Princess range. Inspired by the carefree and bohemian lifestyle, Vera Wang Hippie Princess ($49 CAD for 30ml) has notes of mango, apple blossom, and freesia. Read all about this gorgeous scent now......
Vera Wang Hippie Princess
The Bottle:
Hippie Princess comes in the iconic Vera Wang Princess heart-shaped glass bottle. The clear glass is printed with a pretty blue and pink bohemian style patterns on the front. The crown cap is embedded with gorgeous turquoise beads. Unlike Princess Power, the rim of the crown cap is not detachable and thus cannot be worn as a ring.

Update: The 50ml bottle's cap is wearable as a ring but the 30ml bottle I have here does not have a detachable cap rim.

The Scent:
Unlike the name suggests, this isn't really an earthy hippie scent. Instead, it's a very sweet fruity fragrance. The sweet red mango hits the hardest followed by the refreshing apple blossom and fruity apricot. The fruit medley is intensified with the warm scent of vanilla. The longevity is a bit lacking as the sweetness kind of mellows within a couple of hours.
Overall, this is one for the lover of sweets-not the sugary sweets but fruity sweets. It's definitely a young flirty scent for fun summer days or nights.

Top Notes: Mango, freesia, apple blossom.
Heart Notes: Jasmine, lotus, apricot.
Base Notes: Musk, woody notes, vanilla.
