Valentino Valentina Poudre Eau De Parfum Fragrance Review

What a delight and surprise it was to sniff the new feminine offering from Valentino: Valentina Poudre! Just as the flacon and name suggests, its a unique and intriguing powdery scent that will not fail to turn heads! Valentina Poudre is the latest of many in the Valentina line – presented in a gorgeous matte flacon in a nude/blush hue, there is something very tactile and satisfying about holding the bottle in your hands. The scent itself is a tribute to all things feminine – delicate, husky blossoms of iris and tuberose are imbued with an interesting “crushed terracotta' accord, which renders the scent somewhat earthy, powdery and mysterious.

An uncomplicated trail of sandalwood and vanilla anchor the scent to skin for hours. Valentina Poudre was amongst the very first of modern releases to incorporate this curious “terracotta” effect (an accord that has been swiftly picked up on in 2016 with various other 'poudre' releases). For it's uniqueness and prettiness, Valentina Poudre gets a hefty 2 thumbs up from me! Ideal for evening wear, all year round
