NEXT Just Pink Eau de Parfum

Just Pink was the first ever perfume I owned and I still love it to this day. I was given it as a Christmas present by my first "boyfriend" (primary school doesn't entirely count!) so when I noticed it was still available in NEXT I had to get it. I was given a gift card very kindly by my Aunty last Christmas so I used this to buy it.

It stands proudly among my collection of perfumes on my dressing table and is one I wear in the daytime in order to save my higher end fragrances for nights out and special occasions. The packaging is very similar to that of Christian Dior's Miss Dior range of fragrances but perhaps on the cheaper looking side with the fabric bow instead of metal. However, the small details like the engraving on the lid really make this a lovely bottle.

As for the scent, NEXT describes it simply as "a fresh green floral fragrance with soft fruits and pink blooms". I'm definitely not an expert perfumer or anything, but to me, they sum up this perfume well. It's fresh and smells like spring so perhaps not one to wear in autumn/winter but definitely perfect for the upcoming spring/summer!

I find that the scent lingers on the skin for a good 4 hours before fading slightly but lasts all day and longer if sprayed into scarves (something I wear pretty much every day!) so is on the same level as the majority of perfumes in the market (not including the everlasting fragrances from the likes of Chanel)!

I highly recommend this perfume to anyone looking for a nice/cheaper perfume that doesn't smell cheap or naff like some non-designer perfumes. I love it and it will be something I will forever repurchase for as long as NEXT sell it. The price is extremely reasonable and therefore makes it a perfect gift for someone.

The perfume is available in two sizes: 30ml - £7.50 and 75ml - £12.00 and you can find them in store or online by clicking here.

Do you own this perfume or anything from the Just Pink range? Do you like NEXT fragrances?
