Ariana Grande is quite possibly my most favourite female singer. I went to see her in concert in September and she was incredible, and I have worn her many different fragrances before. I knew that she had a new one coming out, the Ariana Grande Thank U Next Eau De Parfum, but I hadn't seen a release date or anything online.
However, whilst in my local shopping centre, I saw it in the window of The Fragrance Shop, and immediately went in to purchase it, regardless of the scent. The saleswoman advised me that there was 20% off that day, so I got the 100ml bottle for just £34.00, instead of £43.00, and £34.00 alone is excellent value for 100ml of perfume.
My favourite Ariana Grande fragrance was the Ariana Grande Cloud perfume, which I got in Orlando last year, and reading by the notes of the fragrance, I knew I would love Thank U Next, too. There are three sizes available, 30ml for £25.00, 50ml for £33.00 and 100ml for £43.00, and to say you are getting an actual eau de parfum rather than an eau de toilette, which is not as concentrated as a perfume, is such good value and would also make a really good Christmas gift.
The Ariana Grande Thank U Next perfume is definitely a girly, all-year-round fragrance, with the creme de coconut making it great for Summer, but with sugary macaroon and velvet musk transitioning it through to Autumn and Winter. Thank U Next opens up with juicy notes of sparkling white pear and wild raspberry that soften with a heart of creamy coconut and delicate pink rose petals. Divine velvety musk infuses a little bit of sass, while macaroon sugar adds femininity to the fragrance.
The bottle, just like with Ariana's Cloud fragrance, is pretty much an ornament in itself. It arrives in a large broken heart base, which you can remove the bottle from to make it easier to spritz, and the bottle itself is made from a soft pink glass complete with a square lid. You can find the Ariana Grande Thank U Next Eau De Parfum online at The Fragrance Shop here.
All the Loves,
P.S. I have included a few photos from the Ariana Grande concert I went to in Manchester, but due to the lights and darkness there, they aren't amazing!
