This Fragrance Smells Like…

Sparkling, vibrant and confident Valentino Donna Born in Roma Yellow is a hopeful and optimistic perfume composed of three elements: cool couture notes that intrigue the senses with a floral uplift of colour blended into fresh, citrus extracts. It starts with sparkling bergamot essence to awaken the senses, followed by a burst of fruit aquatic notes of litchi accord that are immediately cut through by primofiore lemons for a zesty sharpness.

The luxurious heart of damascan rose essence blooms for a luminous femininity combined with a lightweight, freshness of peony accord. The contemporary clean accord entwines with a sensual white musk that adds a powdery softness to the scent, before melting into creamy, yet spicy notes of madagascan vanilla.
