Next Just Pink Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Very good value for a nice scent!
Disadvantages: Maybe a bit girly?
I wasn't much of a girly girl when I was younger, but when I split up with my ex-husband I went through a very pink phase where I bought many pink clothes and I wasn't happier than when presented with something pink! Although I've calmed down a bit now, pink remains my favourite colour, and I had spotted the Just Pink toiletries in Next in the run-up to Christmas whilst looking for presents for people, and thought that they looked like lovely gift sets. I was very pleased and surprised on Christmas morning when I opened a Just Pink gift set from my sister-in-law's mum. The set comprised of body wash, finger and nail cream, shimmering body cream and perfume.
---Next Just Pink Eau de Toilette---
I just have a little 10ml bottle of this. It's a very cute heart-shaped bottle which sits on its side when put down - it has a slight pink hint to it. There is a silver screw cap which comes off easily but secures tightly. Being a little bottle there isn't a spray nozzle or anything like that, so you'll have to either just put the opened bottle on your wrist and tip up (carefully), and then spread around your wrists and onto your neck - or alternatively you could move it into another container with a spray. I think perhaps putting perfume on like this does have the potential to use too much, but as the scent isn't overpowering, it shouldn't matter too much, and since it's such good value it doesn't matter wasting a little bit!
---The smell and wearing it---
This has a very delicate floral scent. It's light and refreshing, and although I am wearing it now, I think it'll be even nicer in the Spring and Summer. I think that it's a scent suitable for most ages, although perhaps more suited to the 25s and over. It is a floral smell, however it's not an old lady smell - I don't think so anyway!
I find that having applied the scent first thing in the morning, I can still detect it at the end of the day, which is a good thing. I have to admit that no one has yet commented on my scent whilst wearing it (this has only happened with my DKNY perfume), but I don't take offence, and I haven't worn it that often. The main thing is that I can smell it on myself, and it makes me smile. To be honest I think as it's quite natural smelling, it blends into my skin really. When I use the matching products as well the smell becomes more noticeable, but I rarely have time for body shimmers and things like that on a weekday morning, and I haven't yet opened the body wash!
---Price and final thoughts---
You can purchase a 30ml bottle for £6.50 and amazingly a 75ml bottle for just £10 (there is also an Eau de Parfum which costs ever so slightly more - I'm not sure what the difference is). Ok, so it's not a designer brand or anything. However, it's a very nice scent, and I do think I might buy a bottle when I've finished my little one (although I have to say it's lasting very well since I mostly use CK One for everyday use, and DKNY Be Delicious - both reviewed already - for when I'm feeling special)!
I would recommend this, and think that if you're buying people smelly stuff for Christmas or other occasions, then providing they like pink things, then this is not a bad (and reasonably priced) gift idea. It's a good everyday scent. 4 out of 5 stars!
Summary: A good everyday scent!
