NEXT New York Eau de Parfum*
Shabby Chic drawers - Dollybowbow*
I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday evening, I wanted to just give a little ramble/review of this new perfume which is from NEXT, I have mixed feelings!
Now to be honest, NEXT isn't somewhere I shop often, I don't think the clothes are my style atall, If I go in there its usually to their homeware section as they do have some really cute things! I'm massively into perfume though so I was defiantly interested in trying this baby out.
Its not the type of scent I usually go for, Im terrible at explaining scents so i'll include how they explain it;
'A radiant, white floral fragrance with elegant jasmine and sun-kissed orange blossom. In spiring and cosmopolitan, this blend captivates and engages the senses.'
It is defiantly quite a strong jasmine based scent, whereas I usually go for a vanilla/exotic vibe. Its really nice to have something a little different in my collection for those days where you are sick of the same old scents.
Aesthetically I really love the bottle, I think its very current and classy and would look really cute purched on my dressing table.
The down side of this scent to me is that when its first sprayed it is very strong (to me), which I dont like but its nice once it settles in. Also I dont think it lasts very long atall, after 2/3 hours its pretty much disappeared - as its a small little bottle though it actually wouldn't be too bad to carry around with you to top up throughout the day.
So overall I quite like this little fragrance, Its something I'd use when I want a change but I dont love it more than my fave perfumes (Miss Dior cherie/CHANEL Eau tendre) by a long shot! Maybe give it a whiff next time you're in NEXT, I also have tried out the MILAN Room diffuser and I really like that! They seem to have brought out some really nice products recently which would be great for christmas.
Let me know what you think of this if you have it or have smelt it, I think its a lovely stocking filler!
