Elie Saab Girl Of Now

Don’t be fooled by the blue and turquoise branding of Elie Saab Girl Of Now Eau de Parfum; this is not an aquatic or fresh fragrance.

Girl Of Now is a warm, sweet and almost sexy Almond and Pistachio fragrance. It’s good for lasting and has a warm cashmere-like projection which is feminine but also fun. I recommend it for any time of year or occasion, it’s one of those scents you can layer stronger for an evening, but still wear during the day.

If you liked the discontinued Elie Saab L’eau Couture, which also had plenty of pistachio and almond in, then I recommend trying Girl of Now.

Elie Saab Girl Of Now Shine

Elie Saab Girl Of Now Shine is a sweeter and more floral version of the original Girl of Now perfume.

A Pineapple note creates a sweeter Almond than in the original; some feel that it can start to smell a bit like play-dough, some feel it’s similar to Hypnotic Poison.

The addition of Vanilla adds to the sweetness of the Almond as well.

Personally, I prefer the original Girl Of Now because it feels a bit more sophisticated.

Elie Saab Girl Of Now Forever

Elie Saab Girl Of Now Forever is a younger, fruitier and fresher take on the original Girl Of Now scent.

It opens with a Lemon and Raspberry zesty top note which is refreshing and feels quite ‘young’. The fruity notes continue with a Blackcurrant and Rose heart, then followed by the signature Almond and Orange Blossom.

I recommend Girl of Now Forever for the daytime; it could then be layered with the original or Shine versions for the evening.

Elie Saab Girl Of Now Lovely

2022 saw the release of a 4th version of Girl of Now; Elie Saab Girl Of Now Lovely.

This fragrance focuses on a fruity floral Frangipani flower perfume note which is a cute tropical scent. Orange Blossom and Blackcurrant Blossom combine with fresh Mint and Orange to maintain the fruity floral feel as the perfume develops.

There is also a hint of the signature Girl of Now Almond fragrance note, along with a nod towards the Patchouli and Tonka Bean of previous versions.
