On Saturday I was having a bit of a wander around Oxford Street and popped into Next. I ended up having a sniff at their various perfumes, to be honest – I didn’t expect to find anything that I liked, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I ended up buying a small bottle of the fragrance ‘Define’, which is described as ‘an oriental fragrance with exotic flowers and warm musks’. Probably not an ideal fragrance choice for Summer, but I love it. The main reason I love it is because it totally reminds me of one of my all time favourite perfumes – Emporio Armani She eau de toilette (the champagne/gold tube one). I haven’t owned this perfume for a while but smelling this, really brought back all the reasons why I loved this so much – yes, it’s a heavy, quite sexy perfume. But I have still been wearing it every day since the weekend.
The 25ml bottle cost just £6 and the 100ml costs £12. I only went for the small one as I wanted something I can just chuck in my bag, but I am tempted to go back and get the bigger version.
Ok, so the packaging is a bit average looking. But for £6, I’m not complaining. The bottle is small and sturdy and easy to carry around. In fact, it fits in my make-up bag, which is ideal.
Have you tried any Next perfumes? Found any other fragrance ‘dupes’??

I bought this myself.
