Starting with Elie Saab Girl of Now EDP (£62.00 for 90ml at Feel Unique) – I absolutely love Elie Saab fragrances, and Girl of Now has just shot to the top of my favourites list! It’s a gourmand floral scent designed to celebrate women, opening with notes of Roasted Pistachio and juicy sparkling Pear, leading to a heart of Bitter Almond and Orange Blossom Absolute, and Tonka Bean and Patchouli are blended together at the base. The bottle is gorgeous too, inspired by Elie Saab’s jewellery line.
