Reviews of Valentina

That overused strawberry note in the topnotes almost drove me away, but Valentina pairs it up with liqueur-soaked mint and herbal greens. Fairly quickly, a sweet condensed milk smell, caramelized and thick, takes over as the star. The fruity topnotes stick around as a sweet aspect of the caramel, while the boozy greens provide a much-needed counterpoint. All of this happens under a layer of soap just thick enough to make the whole thing smell "perfumey" as opposed to just another dumb sweet perfume.

Valentina isn't as terrible as many of these new high end designer perfumes, which are often content to smell like strawberry shampoo. The mix of perfumey soap, boozy greens, and caramel is interesting, but not really my cup of tea. That being said, this probably would have merited a thumbs up if not for that strawberry note, which was clearly and obviously included specifically to dumb this down.

One of my new favorites

I first tried this fragrance in a magazine. I then ordered a sample and tried it on my skin. I didn't fall in love with it at first, but once it settled on me, I was hooked. Great new fragrance. Can't wait to buy it.

Pros: Memorable
Cons: Not for everyday use."

The truffle and flowers are bright and white, and the combination with strawberry and vanilla quite pleasant. A nice, pleasant spring scent, and with decent quality of ingredients.

Sweet. Super sweet. Intensely sweet. Candied.
Young, girly, giggly.
A veritable bon-bon.
Like biting into a perfume-drenched sugar cube.

I had a chance to smell the scent strip in a magazine. At first, it was nice and creamy. Then that horrible "mothball" note came in! So I don't know if I'll try to get a liquid sample.

Valentina Valentino feels like your ordinary sweet floral at first whiff, but after a while tuberose gets slightly sour, and then - which is more interesting - a tone that is between bitter and green.

Enough to make it stand out in the pretty populated country of sweet-florals.
