Advantages: Smells nice!, cheap price
I've noticed that this perfume has gone through 3 different bottle designs... and i'm not ashamed to say that i've bought and used all 3.
The first bottle design was a few years back and came in a long, thin bottle which felt very delicate and fragile. The bottle was clear and had no design on it apart from stating Next Just Pink on it. It was a 50ml bottle and came priced at £6. This was the first next perfume I had ever bought and priced at only £6, I thought I would try it. I was glad that I did. It was a lovely scent, great to use daily, not too strong, quite fruity, floral and feminine.
Once that bottle had finished and quite a while later, I thought I would buy another one as I quite liked it in my fragrance collection, it was cheaper than some of the more known brands and therefore great to use on a daily basis, without feeling bad if it would run out quickly.
The second bottle I bought around a year later, was again priced at £6 and 50ml. This time it was the same as the one in the Dooyoo picture above. Although a nice bottle, I preferred the first one for being so slim and tall. The second bottle had JP dangling on it and was chunkier than the first. The main thing though, was that the fragrance was exactly the same - as that was what lead me to buy it again in the first place.
Moving onto a few months back, I purchased it again. This time no longer sold seperatly at £6 but only in 50ml as part of a gift set, I purchased the 100ml bottle at £12. Again well worth the price and I knew what fragrance I was getting. I could tell that the bottle and packaging had been improved, and it did look better. It came in a pink box (well ofcourse it'd be pink), with a ribbon attached. The box is quite pretty, with pink flowers on the back in a different shade of pink to the box, it's a nice size and therefore can be kept to store other little bits in, instead of discarding.
The bottle is clear but has a nice effect added at the back. It has pink flowers (the same as on the box) at the back of the bottle. Due to the flowers being at the back of the bottle it can be seen through the perfume as if it's in the bottle, an overall nice design. Although the bottle is clear, the perfume is light pink giving the bottle a nice light pinkish shade. On this design of the bottle it has a light pink sticker on it stating Just pink Eau de Toilette, which is different from it being engraved on the bottle like others. Surprisingly, it doesn't noticeably state on the bottle that it's from Next or a Next brand, something that was on the previous bottles. This time at the bottom of the bottle it has a sticker saying it's highly flammable, 100ml and in a very small font that it's by Next retail ltd.
I've already described the scent being fruity, floral and feminine and I think it's a scent that would suit everyone. Not too strong, but subtle enough to leave an impression. It makes a great little gift and is great as part of your fragrance collection, due to the cheap price it's one that I don't mind using often as I know it can be easily replaced, and it sits nicely next to my Lacoste Touch of Pink fragrance. (What's with all the pink perfume names?)
It doesn't state a description of the perfume anywhere on the bottle or packaging, but the Next website describes it as: A fresh green floral fragrance with soft fruits and pink blooms.
Overall I give this perfume 5 stars, as you can tell I like it and i'm sure it's one that will stay in my perfume collection due to the cheap price. The fragrance isn't as long lasting as some of the more pricey ones, but I think that's to be expected. I also find this fragrance nicer than some of the other Next ones and so it gets a good rating from me.
Thanks for reading.
