We all love a good fragrance but often don’t want to part with our hard earned money on high end brands. If you’re like me and enjoy having a somewhat decent fragrance collection then you could be spending in the hundreds. High-street stores have started to sell their own branded fragrance at really affordable prices.
I remember using the Next Paradise Eau De Parfum (£8.00 – £22.00) in my teens (
along time ago) and I absolutely loved it. It soon vanished off the shelves at which point much to my disappointment I moved on to trying other brands/scents. I recently popped into Next to buy a gift and much to my surprise there it was, the Paradise perfume in the most gorgeous packaging. I didn’t even think twice and purchased the mahoosive 200ml bottle and as soon as I gave myself a spritz I realised how much I loved and missed it.
The fragrance is described as a ‘light fruity fragrance with white florals and green notes’ it’s light, delicate and slightly fruity which are all the key things I look out for in perfumes. The scent is incredibly long lasting without feeling too overpowering, it’s such a fresh smell and reminds me so much of the summer.
I have to compliment Next on creating such a gorgeous looking bottle of perfume, it’s stunning and looks fab on the dresser. It would also make a perfect gift for anyone who likes fruity yet fresh smelling fragrances. For as little as £8 for a 30ml bottle it’s an absolute steal and will save you a hell of a lot of pennies compared to a high end brand. It’s important to remember that the high-street do a lot of ‘dupes’ these days for high end fragrances and it’s worth checking them out.
