Review // Next Just Pink Eau de Parfum

Next Just Pink Eau de Parfum - £8.00 for 30ml
I wouldn't say I was a beauty snob in the slightest. I love Natural Collection for their eyeshadows, Boots own brand for their skincare range and Seventeen for their nail varnishes. But what about perfume? Is cheap perfume worth it?

When I was younger, my idea of high-end perfume was a new bottle of Impulse body spray. I gradually went from Impulse, to Charlie, to the Mary-Kate and Ashley perfume straight through to the Versace Red Jeans Perfume. I remember receiving the latter for Christmas one year and goodness me, it was awful. I remember spraying it on myself quite liberally before I even smelt it and it was so sweet it made my eyes water. Then I felt sick and had to have a lie down. I don't think I used it after that.

Now my everyday perfume of choice is either the Victoria's Secret Bombshell, Daisy by Marc Jacobs or Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana perfumes. They are light and floral and best of all, they don't make me feel physically sick.

For Christmas I received the Next Just Pink Eau de Parfum and I was slightly dubious at trying a perfume that costs less than £10 a bottle. How could it possibly compare to the likes of Marc Jacobs and Dolce & Gabbana? Well, quite well actually.

I don't usually mention the packaging of products but I have to mention the bottle of this perfume. Just Pink is identical to the Chloe perfume bottles which really surprised me considering Just Pink is £8 and Chloe is around £45. I expected the bottle to look fairly basic and simple but no, no simplicity here! Saying that though, I don't think the outer packaging would have necessarily jumped out at me if I were to see it on the shelf.

Just Pink is a fresh and floral fragrance with notes of fruits and pink blooms. It is wonderfully light and fresh, perfect for every day. It's not sweet in the slightest, instead it is a lovely, grown-up floral fragrance with a rosy base. Just Pink is also regarded to be a dupe for the Ralph Lauren Romance Perfume which, at £40, it is definitely worth trying the Next version to see how they compare.

Since I have had the Next Just Pink Perfume, I have had so many people ask me which perfume I was wearing. You can imagine their surprise when I tell them they can get it from Next for £8! I am utterly impressed with this perfume. It is light and floral, definitely a scent suited for me. I really want to try a few more Next perfumes now, especially as I have found out that their Cashmere perfume is a dupe for Estee Lauder Sensuous Nude perfume, as well as their Gold perfume being likened to Yves Saint Laurent Cinema.



  1. I love Next Pink, such a beautiful scent! I find Gold a bit heady, but Cashmere is beautiful! My go to perfume is 'My Burberry' but you can't beat a good old Next scent. Good post! Thanks for visiting my blog :)

  2. Ooh! I never thought to try their perfumes, I've been super impressed with their shimmer bricks which are a total dupe for the Bobbi Brown ones.

  3. I thought the Just pink bottle looked similar to a high end brand bottle. I use cashmere as my daily perfume and alot of the women in my family love the freshness of Just Pink!

  4. Ah the bottle caught my eye here! At first glance I had to double take.. Is that Chloe? Chloe is my signature scent for so long that I was interested to see what this was all about. I'm glad you like the perfume! I also own Daisy and you're right about how light they are :)
