Just a quick little review today – one of the perfumes from Next, the Milan eau de parfum. I was lucky enough to get this as a Christmas present, and it is a really gorgeous scent that will be perfect for spring.
I think Next’s perfumes are great – as far as I know, they are mostly similar to high-end scents. Milan echoes the scent of DKNY Be Delicious, and is a really fresh, crisp apple scent. It has top notes of melon and green apple, heart notes of violet and magnolia, and base notes of sandalwood and amber.
There isn’t as much depth to Milan as the sandalwood might hint, though – this is a very light, easy-to-wear perfume, rather than anything too complex.The apple keeps it very fresh and summery, while the hint of florals in the heart keep it on the girly side. The sillage isn’t huge, and neither is the lasting power, but it’s a really refreshing scent, so I don’t mind topping up!
The packaging of Next’s perfumes is really simple, but I actually love it. I think that they’re very grown-up and sleek-looking, with the chunky glass bottles. How cute would two or three of these look, all lined up? And since they’re only £8 for 50ml, they’d make lovely little presents for friends (or even a treat for yourself)!
