Fragrance: Valentina by Valentino



This is a perfume I've been lusting after for well over a year now and I finally got it for Christmas (is it just me or is perfume a thing you don't buy for yourself?). I had just ran out of my previous perfume, which I was getting a little sick of, so I was so happy when I opened this.

Perfume is different for everyone, whether you like fruity, floral, woody or quite dark scents. I'm definitely into quite floral scents, but also woody scents. Valentina by Valentino is a very sweet crisp floral scent with under notes of fruit in there. It was designed by Olivier Cresp and Alberto Morillas, who are two master perfumers and have created perfumes for various different companies around the world. The top note of the perfume is bergamot and white alba truffles, followed by jasmine, orange blossom and tuberose. It was created to reflected the sophistication of today's Valentino woman. 

I'd previously tried this perfume and knew I loved it. Since having it in my possession, I've realised that it does last all day, surprisingly as it's an au da toilette, not parfum which would last a lot longer. For this coming year, this is definitely going to be my signature perfume.

What's your favourite perfume?
