Valentino Valentina, Strawberry?

Rate this Entry
A new release from Valentino, Valentina is to be launched in September. It sounds like something that I would love, floriental described (by the PR anyway) as 'sensual', I even like the pinky girly bottle. But listed in the notes is strawberry...

The last time I can remember smelling strawberry was in a The Body Shop product a decade ago. It didn't smell bad at all, but for some reason as soon as I read that my interest waned. In the interest in not shutting myself off into perfume snobbery I want to check out some other strawberry notes in fragrance before I write off all red fruits forever. Now I will begin with Miss Dior Cherie because I know the nearest store carries it and a lot of the comments mention it contained strawberry but I don't know what other fragrances contain a strawberry note.

If anyone has any ideas of strawberry frags please comment!

    Lovely wild strawberry note is quite pronounced in Givenchy Extravagance de Amarige (discontinued, but still available at some places).

    A couple of moths ago I ran into a strawberry scent I felt I wanted to get to know with a larger decant and it is Profumi del Forte Versilia Aurum -- enveloping and cozy with the creamy undertones throughout the whole duration and balsamic dryout of tolu, sandalwood and amber (spendy, though).

    Thanks so much for the suggestions. I'm sure I've found the Givenchy around before. That second one sounds just amazing! Where did you find it?

    A sample from LuckyScent. Where are you located?

    Bermuda ATM which means shipping practically quadruples the cost and the wait time. It's a major pain. I've never ordered from LuckyScent before, are they consistent?

    They are, but I do not know them as an International shipper at all, sorry.

    I sent you a PM.

    Just tried this has a nice top note that balances bergamot and truffles (sweet citrus and salty). Then it quickly devolves into something that smells like Pixie Stix!
