Elie Saab Girl Of Now Shine Review

Hi Divas

The Girl Of Now Shine perfume from Elie Saab was released way back in 2018 and I have been wanting it ever since. I am not one to purchase fragrances on a regular basis as they are extreme luxury items for me. I literally saved up for this one and finally made the splurge at a Sephora in Doha. This is the second version of the Girl of Now range, as the first perfume was a little too deep in tone for me and did not sit well on my skin. This updated bottle is lighter and sweeter in scent which appeals to a more youthful audience. Back in 2013, I met an international fragrance creator for designer brands, named Danny Ventura. He did a personal skin, personality and scent test on me and discovered that my body chemistry works really well with sweet, spicy and fruity fragrances. He also told me that Elie Saab is one of the best brands to wear as it compliments my overall essence. Ever since that consultation, I have been an avid fan of the brand as I find that most of their fragrances enhance my natural scent. I am therefore very pleased with my purchase and will share my overall experience of the perfume with you.

  The fragrance is said to represent the radiant spirit of a girl. With the top notes of Orange Blossom, Pear and Pineapple, a radiant fruity and summer essence exudes through. The Middle notes contain Almond and White Flowers while the base notes consist of Patchouli and Vanilla which give the scent a soft sweet feminine appeal. For me, the fragrance has a beautiful warm sweet aroma. It reminds me a lot of a Summer night. There are many layers to this scent such as sweet, mixed with fruity and a hint of deep nutty spice. This Eau de Parfum has great depth and does not feel generic or predictable at all. Throughout the day different notes tend to rise up from the skin. It gives a wonderful surprise when you catch a whiff of it at times. The fragrance is feminine and light as a spirit of a girl but not too sweet or childish. It is very elegant, sophisticated with a hint of playfulness.

The perfume sprays out really strongly on the skin at first. You get a powerful whiff of Orange Blossom and Patchouli at once. As the fragrance dries down and settles into the skin, it becomes much sweeter and lighter in tone. You have the Vanilla, Almond and White Flowers coming through. The aroma gets softer and softer throughout the day. It lasts up to six hours before you need to reapply for a night out. The fragrance wears well on clothes, and I find that the smell lasts really long on fabrics. Girl of Now Shine can be worn day or night and at any occasion. For me this is a Summer perfume as it reminds me of warm outdoor nights. You might feel differently when it mixes with your skin. The scent has great longevity but it is not overpowering or overbearing to wear throughout the day.

The packaging of the fragrance from the outer box to the bottle is absolutely stunning. I love the light, whimsical and feminine look it exudes. The overall design is meant to emulate the gorgeous flowing fairy tale gowns which Elie Saab creates. The gold flowers on the box as well as the gold petals on the bottle radiates the charming and graceful quality of the scent. I adore the attention to detail from the gold cap with an 'S' embossed on it to the base of the bottle and its pleated design. The fragrance captured the flowing haute couture dresses wonderfully. The bottle is made of sturdy glass and has a substantial weight in the hand. The accents of the gold rose petals are well made and everything feels luxe and elegant. There is nothing cheap or gaudy about the overall packaging at all. When you feel the bottle in your hand and look at it on your vanity you can have the assurance that it is money well spent.

Overall, I love the way this Elie Saab scent mixes with the natural chemistry of my skin. I feel uplifted and pretty whenever I wear it. It makes me feel elegant, feminine and vivacious. The enchanting touch of the gold petals on the bottle makes this fragrance stand out from the rest. If you love sweet, fruity and spicy scents, then do give this one a thought. You might be surprised by its wonderful attributes.

Hope you found this review helpful.
