Valentino V (for women) – a brief history

Valentino launches on the market its aroma V in 2005. Its creator is the perfumer Alberto Morillas. Valentino said that he wanted to create a passionate elixir of the female chameleon. He felt a need to make a new fragrance for women which to reflect and celebrate the qualities of the modern woman – her strength, femininity, sophistication.
The advertising face of V is a Russian model Eugenia Volodina. On the photo she is naked, and has a mask on her face – red dominoes. The red color is the favorite of Valentino. In this case the red is reminiscent of passion, mystery and courage.

Perfume notes

Top notes – pear, cassia, mandarin orange, grapefruit, rice;
Middle notes – orange, rose, frangipani;
Base notes – vanilla, heliotrope, musk, cedar, sandalwood, oakmoss, amber.

Pyramid aromatic notes and duration of perfume scent

Valentino V unfolds with fresh citrus scent of tangerine and grapefruit. In the upper notes can be sensed the juicy drops of ripe pear, as well as the interesting flavor of apricot. For the greater complexity of the flavor, Alberto Morillas has added rice notes. It seemed that they get lost among the many ingredients. The heart of the fragrance is more brighter and clean. Entering in it the flavor becomes more calm and balanced. The heart notes are a combination of flowers and fruits. Although the orange flavor is very strong, its odor is quite softened by the rose. The base is again complex, multilayered, it is difficult to determine the exact ingredients. However, the color presence is noticeable. Dominates the heliotrope flower. The sweetness of V is reinforced of the notes of the vanilla. At the base present multitude of wood chords – cedar, sandalwood, oakmoss. Mandatory is the intervention of musk that makes the smell more sustainable. The ambergris does meet the length of the perfume.
The sustainability of the trail is not very good. When it comes to the perfumes of Valentino, I would say that duration is not among the qualities valued by the mark. The flavor is excellent, impressive, sensual but not long lasting. The maximum that it can last is 7 hours. However, this is like under the ideal conditions. I personally after the 5th hour I can never say that I sprayed it.

Proper season and recommended places to apply

I think that V fits all seasons. Spread it on hot spots of the body – the neck, the wrists, and behind the knees. This way you will hold the scent longer. Take the perfume with you in case you lose track.

Shape, shade and original wrapping

V is very gentle, sensual, feminine scent. At the same time is sophisticated and elegant. It is able to fit in, to interest, to bewitch. It is multifunctional – it can be used in all seasons and for all occasions. Of course, everyday more and more common.
Bottle of Valentino V is interesting – indeed it reminiscent of the letter V. The letter, however, is lying and the parts are at right angles. The aroma liquid is almost transparent, with very little nuance. The carton has a red element that resembles the color of the domino in the advertising. You can find the perfume in a cut of 30 ml., 50 ml. and 90 ml.
