An elegant - sweet daydream
At first I wasn't interested in Valentina at all.
But then I thought, as I was again making a foray through the perfumery during my break, a test wouldn't hurt.

By pressing the spray head, the sweet-floral, delicately fruity and very powdery fragrance made me dive into a room in baroque style while dreaming.

I had an image in my head. Of a bright, light-filled room. There were stucco mouldings on the walls and a large cream-coloured dressing table was standing in the corner.
On the dressing table stood an opened powder compact with a tassel and small bottles of exquisite perfume. Heavy velvet curtains hung from the open windows and a fine fragrance of jasmine, orange blossom and tuberose filled the room.
In the middle of the room there was a small table, with a marble top and short, turned, gold lacquered table legs. On it stood a bowl with fresh, sweet-smelling strawberries. On a sofa covered with the finest brocade fabric sat a porcelain doll. She was dressed in opulent jacquard. I took her in my hand and a vanilla sweet rose in my nose.
Slowly the picture faded and I awoke from my daydream.
But since then I love Valentina and I feel completely comfortable with her She is so fine and elegant, but unfortunately also quite entertaining.
Still, it was love at first sight And every time I wear Valentina, the first time I spray it I think of this baroque room.
Silage+shelf life
Valentina is with me like a powdery sweet breeze and only has a good silage for a short time, then it will quickly become skinny.
It's the same with durability.
On the clothes I notice it still in the evening, on the skin unfortunately not after about 5 hours.

Still, I like wearing Valentina Especially in spring, that's when the fragrance (for my feeling) comes into its own best.

The smell that doesn't stand out. Clean, tidy, cultivated. the fragrance suits the young woman but also the elegant lady. Light spice, floral note. The bottle with the flowers may seem a bit kitschy, but it is a sweet idea. Always a Valentina in your handbag!

Just beautiful...
Valentina, the name is already beautiful ... and I feel just as beautiful this enchanting scent.

I perceive it as the fragrance of a romantic, lovable, tender and dreamy woman who doesn't want to be the center of attention all the time and defines herself through admiration of others.
A woman who likes to dress feminine and who treats her child(s) lovingly and respectfully with all other fellow human beings. The favorite pudding cooks and sometimes not perfectly styled to the baker goes.

It's flowery, sweet and doesn't go through much of a change of scent.
It is well balanced from the beginning and very flattering.
A warm, cuddly, security-mediating fragrance.
Vanilla makes it cuddly. I can't sniff strawberry.
Albat truffle - how does it smell, ... i don't know.

When I wear it, it tempts me to constantly sniff at my wrist, somehow keep my hair in motion so that I can catch the scent and also to constantly stroll to my perfume cupboard to marvel at this enchanting bottle again.

'La Dolce Vita'
While certainly not groundbreaking Valentina by Valentino is a really lovely, creamy white floral. I'm always attracted to fragrances with Tuberose in them and this one is not disappointing.

With Alberto Morillas and Olivier Cresp at the helm, one wonders why this fragrance isn't phenomenal, whilst being extremely lovely.
The truffle in the top feeding off the Vanilla in the base presents the nose with a 'gelato' feel for just a little while (quite pleasant if you like ice-cream) but quickly moves on to the white florals, the Jasmine and Orange Blossom a little over run by the Tuberose, which one would expect. This is definitely one for lovers of that intense flower, but does remind of a few recent releases featuring this note ... Madonna's Truth or Dare being one.
Sillage and longevity are average, but then my skin is never one to really judge by :). I see that an 'assoluto' version has also been released and credited solely to Cresp. I haven't tried it but have the sneaky suspicion that it would probably be more up my street, with the addition of Patchouli.

This is a lovely place to start when approaching the world of modern Tuberose scents ... I'm very pleased that I had the opportunity of trying it.

Younger sister of Miss Dior Cherie
At first I was attracted to the bottle. So romantic and beautiful, it's one of the most beautiful bottles I ever saw.
Perfume is excellent. I expected something mediocre, but I was wrong.
Valentina is sweet, long lasting and it has great sillage.
Romantic and feminine.
I don't see it as a flowery-oriental, but flowery-fruity scent.
When I wear it I get a lot of compliments :)

Coutureguru is right -why isn't this fantastic?? Just seems to fly below any worthwhile radar, sadly.
