Fragrances From Next

Hello lovelies!
I've found people have already started asking me what I want for Christmas, have you been asked yet? It's still over 2 months away but I can't really blame them. Christmas will soon be here & the list of people to buy for I swear gets longer every year. Anyway, when people ask me this question, I really don't know what to say. You don't want to say the same thing to more than one person in case you get duplicates, but at the same time, saying nothing means you could end up with something totally random & a waste of that persons money.
One thing I've found to say to people when they ask me is perfume.
Obviously you need to know which one to ask for as everyone has different favourites & you could end up with one that your nan used to wear. (nothing wrong with that but if it reminds you of old lady smell, maybe it's best you write down the name!)
I blogged last year about one of my favourite day time fragrances by Next called Forever Love. I still stand by saying that is one of my absolute favourites. Since then, I haven't been able to resist popping into Next & testing their fragrances as I absolutely fell in love with this one. They are so beautiful & cheap, you really can't say no.
I went shopping yesterday & couldn't make up my mind so instead of picking just one, I chose three. They seem to have a big range in at the moment! So I chose the smallest bottles of each of the three fragrances to test them. What I love about Next is their sizing of bottles. They do a small, medium & large bottle of most of their perfumes (some just a large & small) & usually a large bottle is between £10-15. Perfect for a personal Christmas gift. I'd previously bought Forever Love in the largest bottle  (75ml) & that almost lasted me a year. 
Anyway! On to the ones I chose:  

£4 - Next Eau De Parfum - Sparkle

"A radiant floriental with sparkling citrus & luminous floral notes wrapped in precious woods."
£3.50 - Next Eau De Toilette - Diamonds

"An opulent white floral fragrance entwined with fresh fruit nectars & crystalline musks."
£4 - Next Eau De Parfum - Gold

"A dazzling fragrance with golden flower nectars, gloriously sweet vanilla & molten amber."
I have to be the most rubbish person at describing scents & besides, you'll never know the actual scent until you go & smell for yourself! But I've copied the short description on the back of each fragrance to give you a rough idea.
Have you tried any of the next fragrances?
What's your favourite if you have? : )


  1. Next have some gorgeous scents, I love that they're super affordable too!
