Running half an hour late and flustered I was on my way to London Paddington station to attend the Next Beauty event. I was kindly invited to the Hempel Hotel for the event by the lovely Gemma (@gglover2), as soon as I arrived I was welcomed with a glass of bubbly, it helped calm my nerves! As this was my first blogger event that I had the opportunity to attend I was unsure of what to expect!
The interior was set up in a boutique style with glossy counters filled with lotions and potions. The main focus of the show room was their 'A Tale of Four Cities', four unique fragrance collections inspired by the fashion capitals, London, Paris, Milan and New York. The minimalistic design and muted pastels mimicked the fragrance companies like Jo Malone and The White Company but at a fraction of the price!
Paris was pastel pink, the fragrance was described by the perfume experts as a floral, with hints of jasmine and orchid. Milan, which was pale blue, was next on the counter, this would be perfect for anyone who loves a fruity floral scent. Mint pastel green was New York, my favourite city was encapsulated in a white floral fragrance with notes of orange blossom. Pale yellow products were dedicated to our capital city, London, which had a musky floral base with citrus zing.
I'm glad they included a Christmas scent to their new collection, an expert told me this will rival Yankee Candles with 8% fragrance.
Along with these beautiful new scents, Next have released their famous fragrances, Just Pink, Cashmere and Gold in cute sets, perfect for Christmas gifts (click each name to shop).
I also met some lovely blogger while at the event, go check out their blogs:
