Valentino Rock ‘n Dreams (for women) – short history

Rock ‘n Dreams is the fourth fragrance from the romantic series that includes Rock‘n Rose, Rock‘n Rose Couture, Rock‘n Rose pret a porter. The fashion house of Valentino has launched it in the stores in April 2009. Ilias Ermenidis is the perfumer who has created this composition. The beautiful Norwegian model Siri Tollerod becomes a front of the advertising campaign. The advertisement itself is provocative and erotic. Siri Tollerod is with a couple of friends. The three of them are dressed in white and the background is full of large colorful elements. The white color and the stylish flowers are really an important part of the Rock ‘n Dreams presentment. While talking the other two girls start touching Siri. One of them is caress her hair while the other one pulling her vest. At this moment Siri seems to start dreaming… she is inspired by a feeling brought by the scent of the perfume…

Perfume notes

Main notes – myrrh, peach, canella, vanilla, woody scents.

Pyramid of aromatic feelings and duration of the fragrance

The fragrance of Rock ‘n Dreams is nice but easily gets washed away. It is really delicate, tender and clear.
In the top notes you can feel the presence of the peach. It is really a good idea to include the peach scent into the whole composition of the perfume. This fruit is full of an extremely large amount of warmness, softness and tenderness.
In the heart of the perfume you will find the note of the myrrh – the molecule of the Firmenich, extracted from myrrh and iris. The presence of the myrrh does not seem to be sufficient though. On the whole there is a balance between the synthetic and slightly sour natural ingredients. In the base the majority of the scents are woody. The vanilla is to some extent keeping the sweetness of the perfume. On the whole the Rock ‘n Dreams does not really match the expectations. It is a nice fragrance but the scent is more like a combination of cold unfriendly flowers and a fruit juice.
Despite its price, the perfume is really not that special and unique. The vision, the name – yes, but the fragrance and the duration are really to be criticized a lot. The duration of the trace is no more than 5 hours.

Recommended places to use

You can spray all over you – the fragrance is a tender one but too week and will not last for long.

Shape, shade and original wrapping

The Rock ‘n Rose is a really feminine and sexy fragrance. Despite all the accusations it still keeps the spirit of Valentino. This might as well turn out to be the whole idea of creating this perfume – you get small and really short-lasting pieces of it in order to ask for more and more.
The shape of the bottle is the same as of the predecessors of the Rock ‘n Dreams – a sphere of glass that perfectly matches your palm. There are a few floral elements – a few white stylish flowers. The tap is a white one and resembles to a diamond. The aroma liquid is clear. You can find the Rock ‘n Dreams is sizes of 30, 50 and 90 ml. You should test it – you never know, this might turn out to be your perfume. It is not necessary that your opinion should match with the one of some reviewers.
