The style of the Valentino brand is described by elegant, refined and delicate collections. It was thanks to the Blanche collection made for Jackie Kennedy in 1968 that Americans noticed Valentino. It was in 1969 that Valentino opened his first boutique in Rome. His first perfume came out in 1989 and was soberly called “Valentino”. In 2011, a beautiful collection began, the “Valentina” line . The latter is ultra sophisticated and perfectly represents Italian elegance. In 2013, Valentino offers a variation with “Valentina Acqua Floreale”.
The Valentina collection, the reflection of the soul of Valentino
Like all her elders, “Valentina Acqua Floreale” plunges us into the heart of Palazzo Mignanelli. This visit to a 16th century residence brings us to its private gardens. “Valentina Acqua Floreale” then takes on the appearance of a walk in the heart of nature, more precisely in the heart of a summer garden. Sensual fragrance, “Valentina Acqua Floreale” is also ultra light. It is made up of many aromatic notes coming directly from the Mediterranean. “Valentina Acqua Floreale” is a concentrate of light and Italian sun. The Valentina woman is happy, laughing, and seduced by her natural joie de vivre. Spontaneous and sensual, “Valentina Acqua Floreale” reflects all the grace and Italian elegance.
The floral notes of Valentina Acqua Floreale
Once again, perfumer Olivier Cresp was chosen to create a variation of Valentina. “ Valentina Acqua Floreale” takes off on invigorating notesand solar with the presence of bergamot and neroli. The heart is loaded with dazzling floral notes thanks to jasmine, mimosa, tuberose and orange blossom. Finally, “Valentina Acqua Floreale” evolves towards a more oriental and sensual base, because it is composed of amber and patchouli. The bottle uses the main codes of its elders. Always so elegant, and round in shape, the bottle sports its legendary rose, white for the occasion. The bottle is topped with an ultra contemporary silver ring. Above this ring, we also find the very famous black pearl. As muse and in order to represent “Valentina Acqua Floreale”, the brand has chosen the exquisite Freja Beha, famous muse of the great couturiers.
Lighter than its elder, but just as elegant, “Valentina Acqua Floreale” is a deliciously fresh and sensual fragrance. It echoes the soul of the creator, also in the light of Italy. The Mediterranean sun delicately surrounds “Valentina Acqua Floreale” with its typically Italian notes. A sweet fragrance that transposes us into a flower garden, in the middle of summer.
