Valentina is a collection of fragrances that explores a new feminine ideal. A diversion for the senses, under the Creative Direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli, the fragrances connect to the feeling of an authentic self. This search for the authentic is bound to Pierpaolo Piccioli’s philosophy of individual and effortless beauty, the sensual dynamics of which are explored in four conceptual scents.
Grounded in the exquisite craftsmanship of Valentino’s couture sensibility, Valentina’s traditionalism is edged with experimentalism. Each scent has a foundation in one star ingredient that asks the question; how does the familiar become shockingly new?
Circular bottles with sculptural flower appliqués are given a rebellious makeover, rendered in a single tone from top to bottom. The color-dipped effect is both visually striking and an intentionally provocative gesture – a nod to Valentina’s playful attitude towards beauty.
We take a look at the four feminine fragrances that make up this collection:
The newest addition to the Valentina collection, Valentina Blush is an unpredictable and mischievous interpretation. Like the raw edge of fine silk, Valentina Blush subverts olfactory expectations while seducing the senses. The new scent establishes a place in the Valentina family defined not through intellect but through emotion, an intuitive new chapter in the Valentina story. Orange blossom is wrapped in indulgent notes of praline, in this unexpected vision by perfumer Alexis Dadier.
Pink roses, delicately beautiful yet with a thorny hint of danger, are wrapped with rebellious strawberry in this paradoxical fragrance by perfumers Daphne Bugey and Fabrice Pellegrin. A scent of pure seduction avoiding all convention, Valentina Pink is impossible to ignore.
Gently enveloping the body in an ethereal mist, Valentina Poudre is a mysterious veil for the senses. Perfumer Aurelien Guichard explores the noble transcendence of iris pallida wrapped in intimate notes of terracotta, and the result is like a second skin.
Valentina Eau de Parfum
Inspired by the duality of modern romance, Valentina Eau de Parfum is quiet yet daring. Intoxicating jasmine is wrapped with sensual notes of white truffle, in this subtle yet iconic Valentina fragrance by perfumers Olivier Cresp and Alberto Morillas. A feminine classic twisted with the insolence of Italian ingredients.
