Italian fashion designer Valentino has launched a new perfume which is currently exclusive to Neiman Marcus. Bottled in a strikingly designed diamond-cut flacon, the fragrance is described as a "modern aldehydic floral" with fresh facets...
The scent was created to open on notes of sparkling pomelo, juicy pear blossom and magnolia. It then fades into a heart of "sensuous orange flower, contrasted with softly feminine mimosa (symbolic of feminine strength) and violet leaves." The base notes feature a perfume note of rice vapor borrowed from the culture of niche fragrances where wild experiments are supposed to happen more regularly, as well as heliotrope and vanilla orchid.
The simple, modern, black and romantic blush color palette, reflects the pared-down elegance that makes contemporary Valentino so distinguishable. The curve of the luxurious, diamond cut bottle, mirrors the elegant lines of a timeless Valentino gown, while the crystal cut pattern is inspired by the opulent embroidery techniques for which the Maison is known. The pale blush of the fragrance echoes a crystal fresh sensuality, while the overall facade makes a statement of individuality."
You can now pre-order the scent, which is available for $80 and $100.
