Valentina By Valentino Eau De Parfum

Hello lovelies,

I was recently sent the Valentina by Valentino Eau De Parfum. 
The perfume shop describe this EDP as:
'From this sensual, insolent beauty, this blatant femininity that eludes conventions, two master perfumers, Olivier Cresp and Alberto Morillas, created a fragrance as a tribute to today’s Valentino woman. With attitude, sophistication and unexpected characteristics, the bouquet of Valentina blends an irreverent Italian floral oriental in which each facet reveals a paradox.'

First off, lets just talk about the bottle. The perfume is housed in a gorgeous clear glass bottle with three pale pink and cream metal flowers on the front which i absolutely love. It is extremely feminine and classy without looking tacky. 

The box compliments the bottle of perfume as it is white with pink and white flowers surrounding the Valentina label. 
The perfume itself is not clear but a very pale pink colour which looks lovely through the clear glass bottle. It has a clear plastic lid covering a metal and plastic pump with 'Valentino' written on the metal neck of the bottle. 

It is lovely and light floral scented as it has heart notes of AmalfiOrange Blossom, Tuberose, jasmine with a hint of strawberry, top notes of Calabrian bergamot and white Alba truffles and base notes of Amber enriched by the noble signature of Cedar.

It smells quite grown up, sophisticated and expensive smelling if that makes sense?  It is sweet smelling but not too sickly like some perfumes can be. It is most definitely a perfume that i have been reaching for quite often recently. As it is a EDP the scent lingers and lasts on the skin, i think it smells much nicer when it has settled into the skin. 

Im glad ive had the opportunity to try this as it is one that i would bypass in department stores as i have never looked at fragrances by Valentino before however this really does smell lovely. 

Prices start at £40 for 30ml and a 50ml bottle retails for £53 and is available to buy from The Perfume Shop.

I definitely recommend having a sniff!

  11. I have been lusting after this purely because of the bottle! Dreadful I know:P
    I did originally think the flowers were suede -looking at the advert - but it's still gorgeous packaging.
    It also sounds like my kind of scent! May have to nip into Boots and have a sniff!
