Most Helpful Positive Review Beautiful for a Night Out/Husband Approved
I really enjoyed this perfume. Moments after I sprayed it my husband said from another room "smells pretty!" It smells expensive, pretty and clean but has a slightly heavy note, maybe has a hint of musk? On the sample package it says "floriental woody fragrance" so perhaps I'm referring to the woody notes. So for me it's definitely an evening/night out perfume. It's not one I would wear everyday, but definitely a go to for dinner with my husband or a night out. It makes me want to dress up! Also, one spray of the scent lasts for a good amount of time. I can still subtly smell it hours later. Overall I really loved my free sample #bzzagent #freesample
Most Helpful Critical Review Pretty but all too familiar
VALENTINO DONNA BORN IN ROMA EAU DE PARFUM is a nice fragrance that I enjoyed wearing but I'm a fragrance fanatic with a large collection and already own scents that smell quite similar. This perfume is not unique. In fact, it's very similar to Dior's Poison Girl Eau de Toilette in terms of the orange, vanilla, and white floral shared notes. The only main difference is that Born in Roma has a stronger woodsy base which is almost too heavy for my taste after the top notes wear off. The longevity and projection are great so that's a plus. But overall, my opinion is that this isn't a unique scent and not something I'd expect from a high end designer. It's definitely something created to appeal to the mass market.

I was gonna buy the full size, considering the high ratings of it, BUT oh thank GOD I wasnt :) I will give this to my mom in-law cause I think it is better for older ladies lol

My new favorite! I am extremely picky when it comes to perfumes because most will give me migraines. However, this one smells AMAZING and lasts all day long. I love it!!! I will continue repurchasing it.
Diana from Dallas, TX.
This is a sweet and floral type fragrance. So far every time I've worn it, I've gotten compliments mostly from men lol it lasts pretty ok, could be longer for the price but I'm not complaining. I'd probably wear this year round, maybe more going out tho! Bottom line I love this scent and will be keeping it in my collection for sure 😍😍
Ant from IL
Bought this on a total whim based on the reviews and I love it. It's the classy, elegant scent that I've been looking for and I'm so glad I gave it a try.
PTY Girl from Arizona
This fragrance is beautiful . If you like black opium or la vie est belle you would love this. I think this fragrance is perfect for year round. If you are on the fence just buy it you won't be disappointed!
Nancy from Atlanta, Georgia
It smells good but not my favorite im so glad i got the travel size spray because this is not my type of fragrance. It smells like hairspray at first to be honest i would say this is definitely a fragrance for like a mother or grandmother.
Tburr from Texas
Ok I bought this online on a whim by not smelling and trusting reviews. I like when people compare it to another perfume if possible. But I didn't find to many comparisons. But when I did receive this & sprayed it....WOW, I couldn't believe how much it reminded me of Black Opium. It doesn't take a lot and can be overpowering if oversprayed. For me I think this is more of a Fall scent or an evening night out scent. But overall I liked it!

I would never buy this again

My girlfriend recently got this and smells like a 95 year old woman. If you are a male you do not want your girlfriend/wife wearing this. Great Christmas present for a grandma or great aunt.
Smells great, staying power is meh
Arie from Portage, MI
I absolutely LOVE the way this smells. It's warm and sweet. However, this scent does not last very well. It has ok staying power on clothing, but on skin it's completely gone within a couple of hours. It's definitely a fragrance I would want to keep a travel size in my purse of for touch ups through out the day.
Rockie from DC
I'm so in love... sweet smell... has a familiar scent... long lasting. I just want to hug myself all day when wearing Valentino... smells like Ms. Dior but better... I freakin love this fragrance...just bought this bottled and want another one as already.
SMELLS SO GOOD!

A mild sweet fragrance that does not overwhelm you. Can last for 4 to 6 hours, and is a nice winter perfume because it makes you feel like spring.
MtinY from undisclosed
The sample Donna Born in Roma I have receive, the smell not too heavy and good. However, it's a little sweet. Personally, do not like sweet smelling. However, I will recommend my friends who like sweet smell to purchase it. Anyway, the pink color is cute.
