Next Just Pink Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Great fruity floral, feminine and easy to wear, not expensive
Disadvantages: None for me
Just Pink is a fragrance from highstreet store NEXT and I received this as part of a gift set last Christmas. Unlike the photo above, my particular 100ml bottle of Just Pink is taller in shape and slimmer and better looking in general. On the lower half of the bottle there is a pink flower design which gives the bottle an appealing feminine look that I like.
Although available in gift sets, the 100ml bottle usually costs Ŗ12, which I consider to be a very good price, after all, perfumes from Avon for example are usually the same price for half the amount of perfume! This perfume is only available to buy directly in NEXT branches, and probably their catalogue, but you might also be able to get a bottle of this online from eBay for example for less.
Just Pink comes in quite a basic looking glass bottle. The one I own slightly differs to the picture above as it comes in various different shapes and sizes, and though the Ciao picture shows a stumpy and more rounded bottle, mine is actually slightly more attractive being tall and slim with pretty pink flowers on the lower half. The bottle itself is clear, but the fragrance is a pale and feminine pink colour.
When first sprayed on to the skin, there is a really nice fruity aroma of oranges and peaches, which I found to be very nice indeed. There was a slight floral aroma, which the official notes say are freesia, and this is a nice delicate aroma that I liked. After 10 minutes, I could smell more of a floral bouquet, but a quite exotic kind as jasmine became noticeable alongside a warming rose scent.
As there is no indication anywhere what base notes are used it is difficult to say exactly, all I know is after wearing this for an hour or so it is mainly flower orientated as the opening fruit notes seem to fade after about twenty minutes. The base notes are quite hard to identify, as it seems to retain a floral fruity note throughout, though there could be some woodier notes lurking at the bottom, it's hard to tell!
I find that this fragrance usually lasts around 4-5 hours on my skin which isn't bad. After that time it's very difficult to still smell it, but it's not so expensive so you can reapply in the afternoon if desired.
Light and fresh, I find this daytime fragrance to be very enjoyable. It's fruity and floral without being over the top, and for the price you can't go wrong.
Summary: A very good, fairly long lasting perfume with no real negatives.
