The perfect handbag perfumes?

Hi Ladies,

I have about 3 favourite perfumes (post about those coming up shortly!) which I like to alternate and use on a day to day basis. However, even though my handbag is absolutely huge I don't really like to carry around a full size bottle of perfume on my bag (I think its more the fear of loosing or breaking it than the weight seen as I carry around all kinds of junk in my handbag!). So I have a couple of smaller perfumes which have become permanent fixtures in my most used handbags, and they are these two little gems from next.

They are flowers on the right, and just pink on the left. Both of these are really reasonable from next - I think they cost around £5-6 for 30ml which is the perfect size for your handbag! The scents are quite similar, very fresh, girly and easy to wear. Flowers (unsuprisingly) smells a bit more floral than just pink and is the one I have been reaching for more lately, as it is perfect for summer! Although they cannot compete with my more expensive perfumes in terms of staying power, I find them to be pretty long lasting. They are both quite light scents, perfect for top ups throughout the day :)
Have you used any next perfumes before? which perfume do you keep in your handbag?
Speak Soon!
