Valentina Blush (rate it & win)


Roman fashion house Valentino has just unveiled the third fragrance in its Valentina fragrance collection. It’s called Valentina Blush and it joins “Poudre” and “Pink”, both finely crafted luxe scents housed in one of perfumery’s most beautiful bottle designs. While “Pink” is a spirited floral and “Poudre” a soft powdery musk, “Blush” is a sweet and sparkling Oriental for her.

The star note in this particular version is Morello Cherry giving it a warm, fruity effect. It’s balanced nicely with spicy pink pepper. Orange blossom was an ideal choice of floral note to balance the cherry as both are considered strong notes. Add in a sweet praline base and you have a sophisticated twist on the fruity-gourmand fragrance trend.

The bottle design features a floral motif taken from the Valentino Haute Couture collection. It was also used on Valentino’s luxe accessories collection. The bottle looks like a piece of art or a home accessory item that would look impressive on a dresser or bathroom vanity.

    The bottle is darling. I hope the smell is darling as well. From the mixture of the ingredients I believe this may be right up my alley.

    My best friend from grade school was and still is Valentina. If I won this I would give this to her, to show her how much she means to me. The bottle looks beautiful and the scents described sound lovely, just like her spirit.

    I would give it a 7, fragrance sounds more interesting than the bottle, maybe other colour would be more atractive for me, like purple or black 🙂

    I’d rate the bottle design as a 7 , as I like the style but it’s just a bit too orange for my taste, perhaps it would have looked better with another colour added to compliment or add contrast. Nevertheless I’d love to try the perfume, thanks for the chance to win it!

    I would give it 10/10 because it is so girly and different – even the nozzle isn’t your typical perfume nozzle! @jennierinnn
