What can I say about the Elie Saab Girl Of Now Eau De Parfum Perfume that doesn’t seem like I’m fan-girling or jumping on the ‘new perfume’ train? You know when you’re on the hunt for a new perfume but nothing feels quite right until you smell that one scent that was PERFECT? I mean you have smelled your way through EVERYTHING and just when you think you are on the verge of losing your sense of smell you find a perfume that is exactly what you’re looking for – well that was my experience with the Elie Saab Girl Of Now EDP Perfume.
With an extremely decorative bottle based on an enamel blue and gold flower Elie Saab accessory,the Elie Saab Girl Of Now Eau De Parfum Perfume – £74.00 for 90ml via FeelUnique – is an oriental scent that boast Almond, Orange Blossom and Patchouli notes – although between you and me I don’t smell any orange – Inspired by Lebanese delights, the fragrance opens with “Roasted Pistachio and sparkling Pear for an addictive top, with an Essence of Bitter Almond and Orange Blossom Absolute heart assembled together to create a new exclusive note the ORMOND FLOWER, which reveals precious and gourmand facets”. This frangrance includes Tonka Bean – which I personally like to call the “make everything smell like sugar” bean – and Almond Milk.
- Top notes: Roasted Pistachio & Pear
- Heart notes: Bitter Almond & Orange Blossom
- Base notes: Tonka Bean & Patchouli
Not to be harsh on this Elie Saab fragrance but I feel like this smells VERY SIMILAR to the Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb perfume as they both Oriental perfumes with have patchouli acting as a base note – which is probably why I loved this so much, I adore Patchouli scents –, are citrus based and have milky tones to it.
I could make the argument that the Elie Saab Girl of Now Perfume is a little more grown-up and subtle as it used almond milk and pistachio to give it a different flair BUT there’s no denying that this is an EXTREMELY sweet fragrance so if you don’t like smelling like you work double shifts at the Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory then this is NOT the fragrance for you! Personally I’m all about the sweet scents and have built an impressive perfume collection around that so “to each their own”.
The Elie Saab Girl Of Now EDP Perfume costs £38.00 for 30ml, £58 for 50ml & £74.00 for 90ml and can be purchase from Feel Unique
