Valentino Valentina for women | Perfume and Cologne Review
Perfume Valentina Eau de Parfum by Valentino – NEW 2011
Perfume Valentina by Valentino (Valentine from Valentino) is a sensual and sexy fragrance for modern young women presented by the Italian Fashion House VALENTINO in September 2011 (The first fragrance was released in partnership with the Spanish company Puig).
Perfume «Valentina» embodies the new image of the ideal of femininity from Valentino, created by Pier Paolo Pikkioli (Pier Paolo Piccioli) and Maria Grazia Chiuri (Maria Grazia Chiuri) – the chief designer of the brand after the departure of Maestro Valentino. The classic features of aristocratic elegance are now combined with the daring and bold nature of modern women. “She is fleeting and refined, elusive as a mirage, her mysteriousness attracts, and unpredictability seduces. Valentina is a beautiful and radiant girl, seductive and elegant, far from conventions, she personifies her own style “(official press release).
Delicate and romantic, full of rebellious contradictions, the oriental floral fragrance “Valentina” is the result of the creative cooperation of two famous perfumers Alberto Morillas and Olivier Cresp. Thanks to the use of components assembled in Italy (bergamot, white truffle, orange blossom), they managed to embody in the novelty the aura of the Roman holidays with a full immersion in the real “Dolce Vita”.
The opening of the composition Valentina is built on a rather unexpected interlacing of juicy refreshing notes of Calabrian bergamot with the impudence of woody-earthy intonations of white truffles of Alba. The exquisite mushroom ingredient casts a paradoxically soft shade on the luxurious floral bouquet of the “heart”, in which the elegant melody of a snow-white chord from jasmine sambac, Mexican tuberose and orange blossom from Amalfi (a city on the coast of Italy) is mixed with the delicate and mischievous accompaniment of sweet strawberries. Noble notes of virgin cedar, are combined with the sexual femininity of amber and vanilla in the final consonance of the elite women’s perfume Valentina by Valentino.
The modern design of the Valentina bottle is an amazing combination of exquisite elegance and sensual romance. The elegant faces of the glass bottle are decorated with a “bouquet” of flowers from the finest metal, painted in softly-pastel colors (flower applications are a favorite element in the haute couture collection of Valentino’s House ). Union of white, beige and ivory colors (the colors of the latest collections of the brand) – as a visual code of a new period in the history of the legendary Fashion House, which among other things has a spectacular “propensity for contrasts and paradoxes.”
The main heroine of the advertising company of Valentina spirits, embodying a new image of a woman from Valentino, was one of the most successful top models of modernity, the Dane Freya Beha Erichsen (Freja Beha Erichsen). In television advertising, directed by famous clipmaker Johan Renck (Johan Renck), tells the story of a young aristocratic girl who lives in an old Italian palazzo. Despite her well-mannered manners, her playful rebellious character yearns for freedom and adventure. Valentine escapes from a festive reception to the sounds of the famous song “Via Con Me ” performed by Paolo Conteto go to a noisy party, where he will have fun until the morning. The girl is dressed in the finest black chiffon dress from the spring-summer collection of 2011 from Valentino, which perfectly emphasizes her femininity, and details of black leather are given alongside rock and roll chic.
In the advertising of the fragrance “Valentine”, the stylistics and aesthetics of such geniuses of Italian cinema as Fellini and Visconti were perfectly recreated: the mysterious and attracting streets of the Eternal City, beautiful women and bohemian Dolce Vita (“sweet life”).
After filming the video of Frei Beha, she admitted that the image of Valentina’s rebel is close to her and understandable: “My heroine, like me, likes to be free, to have fun and do what one really wants.”
British fashion photographer David Sims (David Sims) – the author of promotional images – captured the main character during her return home, strolling through the deserted, not yet illuminated by the sunlight, the streets of Rome after a well spent night.
Valentine’s spirits are published in the concentration eau de Parfum (perfume water) in three volumes: 30, 50 and 80 ml EDP. The line also includes lotion and body oil, shower gel and deodorant.
