A great classic peach and carnation scent. Very well balanced, and used to be my signature scent for a period of time in the late '80s...but WHY have all of the Valentino brand pictures disappeared from the database?? Very disappointing, and looks like the brand requested it?!?

My mother used to wear this perfume in the 1990's when I was young her bottle had since ran out a while ago...She used to wear the EDT and the empty bottle she still kept till present day. I could still get whiffs of this marvelous scent when I sniff the nozzle and it brings upon such pleasant memories..

I was a little kid sitting near my mum's feet as she was getting dressed, putting on her make up, and most importantly her perfume. She was young, beautiful and not suffering from any health problems like she is today..and I was a kid with nothing that I have to worry about in the world at all, everyday felt so free. To sum it up, this scent makes me feel very joyful sometimes very nostalgic, re-living the past and temporarily escaping the chaotic world that I am living in today.

I was lucky enough to find another bottle earlier today from a perfumery who had put a few of their old tester bottles out for sale after Christmas, I got the EDP (a little more powdery and dense compared to the airy and green EDT) about 90% full for $80. Not a bad price to pay for such a wonderful creation that makes both my mother and my self very happy when we smell whiffs of it.

I immediately detect the peach note, but I don't know why the perfume does not smell "sweet" at all to me!

Valentino is a treasure that brings back good memories: one sniff, and it's September 1990, I'm 14 and in love with a boy in my class. Never told anyone, because all my friends thought he was too girly to like, and so nothing ever happened, but we often went home from school together by bike, racing along the fields in the golden autumn sun, him wearing round, Harry Potter-style glasses, me wearing Valentino, both of us giggling all the way.

Thank you dear Iris_it for the preceous sample I treasure each drop
I totally love it,uplifting and elegant.
Rosy,green and clean,I wouldn't call it a sweet perfume.
I wonder if modern perfumes will have a retro style such as this.

Liqueur of roses&Co.!

Magnific fragrance.
Bitter Roses, sparkly citruses and leaves to lift up the hyacint. A concert of notes distincted, lights and shadows. This perfume is underscribeable. Vibrant vibrant! With a strong personality itself. Unic. It is stupid to discontinue such class and elegance. It is a real Masterpiece and make you in a good feeling.

Wearing this is like sitting in a plush white room with a vase of freshly cut long stemmed white roses... hmm sensory heaven.

Also, it's a 'must have' scent in every girl's perfume wardrobe, simply because you will crave for it once in a while when all the regular sweet favorites begin to feel cloying at some point in time.

Not an everyday scent for me, as it's a tad too dry on me but a real respite when I need one, with its blast of dry green yet floral rose.

Floral, dry-sweet and green lots of fresh cut roses, lillies (without the hayfever) and ylang-ylang on my skin. My mother would wear this in the early 90's for special events and it screamed class to me from a young age. It oozes freshness, and sophistication. This is truly delicious and hard to get hold of without paying a fortune. I had a bottle a few years ago which had turned, recently got a new one for a bargain price which had been stored correctly and smells amazing brings back so many memories. this has a dry sweetness which reminds me of Yvresse and Ysatis, but this has a bit more of a green undertone which reminds me of Estee Lauder Private Collection with the green wet rose notes. Delicious, I start craving this in the spring along with my Fidji, Estee Beautiful love and Elizabeth Taylors diamonds and emeralds all fruity slightly tropical tinged fresh cut florals with green herbaceous undertones.

I am immediately drawn back to around 1984. This is one of the first perfumes I bought while living overseas. It captures a time in my life when I was young, felt invincible and carefree like a giddy, worldly traveller who was enjoying life to the fullest and marvelling in the sights and sounds of another world.
I remember the sweet and sparkling scent that made me feel so much more grownup and mature than I really was and I probably paid way more than I should have for a perfume but the purchase was made because of the way the scent made me feel and I never regretted that purchase or those memories.
Just thinking about it makes me want to search for another bottle for memories sake.


P.S. I found a bottle...I'm in Valentino heaven!

One of the first perfumes owned by myself, it has a typical green note which is pleasing to the olfactory. A very classic scent which should go well with wedding bells. Sadly I cannot get hold of this anymore. Does anyone know where can I get hold of a bottle?

The inherited flask is all classic, femininely and floral.
A flowery garden in spring from which there can be perceived some not very distant forest that finishes catching you.
The classic . I am charmed with one the intense color of the splash cologne in his interior.
