thank u, next was on repeat in my house for weeks. Months, even. My obsession with the song (and Ariana Grande) had become undeniable. It got to the point that my husband commented on how many times he had heard the song. It was a lot. Since the song is high up on my list of loves, the announcement of Ariana Grande's latest perfume peaked my interest. Her fragrance, thank u, next was released late last month. Knowing my love of the song, my husband brought home the perfume for me. It was unexpected and exciting. So...how does the perfume smell? What is the packaging like? Here is everything you need to know about Ariana's latest launch.
When it comes to packaging, Ariana Grande perfumes always impress. I own another one of her perfumes, Cloud, and it had a similar packaging style. (Check out pictures and read my review here.) Essentially it has a round perfume bottle that sits in a themed plastic holder. While Cloud was themed as, well, a cloud, thank u, next is all about love. The pink rounded bottle has a square cap with X's and O's on each side and a soft pink broken heart bottle holder. It looks super cute and certainly stands out among the other bottles in my perfume collection. In terms of the aesthetic value, this fragrance is off the charts amazing. It is bold, fun, and oh-so-perfectly themed.
As for the scent itself? That is also a winner. Despite my massive collection of perfumes and scented beauty products....I am actually pretty picky about smells. There are things that I like and things that I do not. Heavy scents are typically not my thing. Same with spicy fragrances. Generally speaking, I like scents that are fresh, floral, or sweet. thank u, next falls on the sweet side but it has a really mature, sophisticated, and warm undertone. The end result is a perfume that is perfectly balanced. It is fun and flirty enough for daytime wear but also rich enough to be worn for a night out. This is a wonderful perfume that I absolutely love reaching for.
In addition to the perfume itself, this came with a gift with purchase. (I always love when perfumes come with little extras. It definitely adds to the excitement.) What was it? A pair of socks! Yes, bright pink thank u, next socks. They are really soft and super cute. So cute that I keep debating whether or not I should wear them. Part of me wants to keep them and add them to my endless collection of music merchandise. Another part of me is desperate to wear them because they are adorable. Decisions, decisions! Whether or not I decide to wear them, there is no denying it: the socks are ridiculously cute.
Overall, I am really impressed with the thank u, next perfume. The bottle and holder are themed well and the scent itself is absolutely incredible. This is one fragrance I plan to wear again and again and again.
Have you tried this perfume? Are you a fan of Ariana Grande?
