To translate the powerful optimism of the bright hue in the Valentino Born in Roma Yellow Dream scent, the House invited two pairs of perfumers to create distinct olfactory stories around a singular and most unexpected note.
For Born in Roma Yellow Dream Donna, perfumers Anne Flipo and Nicolas Beaulieu were inspired by Rome, bathed in a warm, comforting light to reveal the character traits of the Valentino woman: sparkling, vibrant, confident. Composed in three steps around Valentino’s Color, Cool, Couture notes, this musky floral intrigues with its pure and reassuring accord.
Hand-harvested in Calabria, south of Italy, bergamot essence awakens the senses with its radiant and sparkling take-off, energized by fizzing, zesty notes of Italy’s primofiore lemon. The airy, yet tender freshness of peony flowers enhances this joie de vivre and enlightens Turkish rose essence. A white musk accord continues this clean accord of sweet and carnal notes. In total contrast, spicy Madagascan vanilla absolute with a vibrant Virginia cedarwoord.
For Born in Roma Yellow Dream Uomo, perfumers Julie Massé and Violaine Collas were inspired by Rome in a deep, reassuring light to reveal the character traits of a radiant, energetic and determined man. Composed in three steps around Valentino’s Color, Cool, Couture notes, this spicy oriental surprises with its gingerbread accord.
Zesty, tangy facets of Mexican lime infuse their positive energy into a bright and color-filled pineapple accord. Cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg shape this gingerbread accord with smoky and oriental notes that creates a sense of refined addiction. Madagascan vanilla completes this gingerbread accord, with its soft, smooth facets. Its leathery and animal character blossoms in the warm sensuality of woody notes.
The iconic rockstuds lend their pyramidal modernity to the rounded bottles of Donna and Uomo, with the Valentino signature in yellow fluo against black for the label. Projecting the invigorating yellow light of the scents themselves, these glass prisms stand as a beacon of optimism and renewal.
The duo fragrances are now available at all Valentino Beauty counters as well as online here.
