Elie Saab is one the designer I quite like, not only for the stunning bride dresses but also the pret a porter with unique jackets and bags, and that concept is shown with Girl Of Now Shine, a fragrance for a “ready to go” luxury, classy and fun girl released in 2018. This is the second fragrance of the Original Girl Of Now launched last year, which I haven’t tried yet but as soon as I can I will compared both. The bottle from the original version only changed on the colour of the petals of the top, the original has a light aquamarine and this one is gold. This fragrance is a sweet floral, fruity with amber touch.
- Top Notes: Pineapple, Pistachio, Mandarin Orange and Pear
- Heart Notes: Jasmine, Bitter Almond, Orange Blossom, Ylang Ylang
- Base Notes: Vanilla, Iris, Patchouli
It opens with a powerful sweetbitter mix of almond, pineapple and vanilla, around 15 minutes later it becomes a bit softer with the jasmine,orange blossom.
The fragrance is moderate/long lasting, quite sweet but not overwhelming, is more suitable for autumn and winter season. For the type of fragrance I would says is more for young adults or people like me with a skin that evaporate perfumes quite quickly.
This an Eau de Parfum, available in 30, 50, 90ml.
To conclude I would say that Girl Of Now Shine is really a lovely perfume for cold seasons and for lovers of sweet and long-lasting floral perfumes. Verdict: Recommended
