Rated 4.63 out of 5 stars
It smells sweet and very pleasant but didn't fully convince me. I sprayed it on my wrist before I left the house to see how it developed and I have to say I was really impressed later on. It's very sweet yet fully masculine. I find the development of the fragrance to a sweet, powdery note and the subtle leather content simply outstanding. Every time I wear the scent, I have to smell my sleeves where I applied the fragrance regularly because it simply gives me a very pleasant feeling. I received mostly positive comments from women, by the way.
I am also impressed how long the fragrance lasts. I can apply it in the morning and I can smell it the whole day.
This scent is eerily similar to Curve... I can't pinpoint whether it's the perfume or cologne, me and my gf had each, but I remember this scent from my high school days. The only difference I would say is that this scent is way more potent which I believe will allow it to last longer on your skin and they will smell you from a distance. Don't get me wrong I really like the scent for the spring time but, it doesn't feel unique or new. Very, very sweet and powdery. I can't honestly call this cologne though. I personally have Dior Sauvage and Burberry London in my everyday repertoire. Even though the London is a light scent it's not as "high-pitched" with the sweet tones as this one is. I would only recommend this if the price was affordable since it feels like a reboot of Curve but I'd have to assume that Valentino doesn't play in the affordable arena. Sauvage and London are truly unique scents but this one, unfortunately, isn't. I'm not a fan.

One of my coworkers told me I smelled like pesticides. Another told me I smelled like his grandfather's house. I returned the next day and purchased Valentino Coral Fantasy. It is a huge hit!

As a female who doesn't like very fruity or just sweet smelling perfumes, I crossed this "cologne" one day and found it perfect for me. It's not my daily, since it's very strong and I want to avoid getting complimented every single day (you will literally get compliments all day long or asked what scent it is). But it's a great scent for a power day, date night, or just when you want to make another person find you irresistible. Just don't put too much on, I'm serious when I say that it's strong and over spraying could make it unpleasant (you don't need much). Bottle lasts a long time, definitely recommend!

Here is another great scent from the house of Valentino! Not as classy as the coral fantasy. But still a great scent last hours on the skin and smells great!

Very versatile, sweet opening with some violet, ginger, and sweet notes. Dries down with vetiver. Beautiful scent, wish it lasted longer on me

I wear this a lot and it is one of the best fragrances I have had! It smells very sweet and pleasant. The only downside is it is very strong compared to other fragrances. It lasts for a long time and the bottles very pretty and easy to carry around. I would definitely recommend Valentino.

Would of loved it more if Ulta had the free gift that was being offered!

Valentino modernized their Uomo line with the born in romas. This is a fresh, sweet, fruity, bubblegum style of fragrance with a little edge to it. It's great for a night out or date night out in the summer. Good day time option the rest of the year. Compliment magnet.

The violet ginger and vetiver are very evident, it is quite addicitive.
Great for many ages and environments, and is unique in it's quite different spicy sweet accord.
Distinctive fashionable bottle, definitely compliments the fragrance well.
scent : 7/10 ( pleasant but far from being unique )
Projection : 8/10 ( very good for the first 2-3 hours )
overall : 7/10

This cologne is a compliment getter. If you had to make a blind buy on a cologne that you could use for everyday no matter the occasion this one is it very playful fresh sweet scent. Last about 6 hours on my skin

It's a night time seduction scent. Mature, sexy and unforgettable. Purchased this item for my boyfriend and he loves it!

Shardea from Michigan
I have this bottle but I need to know is this for men or woman I get so many compliments on but also get people telling me it's for men. It would be nice to know.

I have all of these for men and this is my second favorite to the coral! If you haven't tried this you are definitely missing out. Well worth the money. The notes flows well in this scent! If you enjoy great scents at a decent price you gotta give all of Valentino fragrance a try!

This is a really nice fragrance and it's affordable. It's very sweet so I would make sure to test it first. It's a great pick for younger people in their teens and 20s.

VR from Iowa
I am a female who doesn't like very girly or fruity perfumes and this one is my favorite one out of all the Valentino fragrances! This is a unisex fragrance so don't get fooled when it says "for men". I highly recommend 100%
Frank from Kissimmee florida
A friend gave me this cologne and it has a impact every where I go people turn around with a great compliment and it last all day it's has great longevity and as it stays in your body it smells better and more powerful I recommend 💯 percent.

I keep a bottle of this in my car. It's a nice scent. Not super extravagant or overwhelming. Lots of compliments from my co workers.
humble from undisclosed
I love this stuff it smells amazing! It is on the pricier side and I'm honestly not sure if it's for men or women it could go both ways!
evap81 from undisclosed
This is my absolutely favorite scent right now. I get so many compliments on it! Smells so good and is not super strong. I am sensitive to smells and get headaches, this one I have no problems with!! Please never discontinue!
anthonyp41 from undisclosed
The fragrance is absolutely phenomenal, not too overpowering or overwhelmed. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a good cologne.

This right here is a like for me!!, this smells so good some say a lil youthful but can understand why, not to overpowering but at the same time a fresh fragrance, for daytime use I would say,.. lasting for about 5-6 six hours would have to apply thru the day, overall a 7 outta 10...
