Most Helpful Positive Review Classic. Good for many occasions.
Classic. First word that came to mind upon spritzing this perfume for the very first time.
The first thing I smelled was citrus. Then it quickly and seamlessly transitioned.
At the end, the floral of the gardenia with slight whiffs of Bergamot and Vanilla, stood out the most.
I would definitely err with caution by saying this perfume is more on the floral side of the spectrum.
The vanilla brings it back to earth, so to speak.
I am reminded of what another reviewer had posted, that it reminded them too much of an "old lady type perfume". I'm paraphrasing.
I understood that.
Truth be told, I immediately thought of old classics that my Nana and Auntie's would wear.
Perfumes that to this day evoke memories of childhood, growing up, hugs hello and goodbye, church on Sundays, family gatherings, sneaking squirts of perfume, or pops of perfumed powder when I visited.
But to me, I do not mind that this perfume is more of a classic sent. One that reminds me of these things.
What I like best is you could go heavy or strong with this fragrance. One squirt and you are ready for the day. Two or more, last you through a night- whatever you are choosing to do.
I easily see this perfume for pretty much any time of the year. Appropriate for just about any occasion.
This is definitely not a bright girly perfume. Nor is it heavy and cloying either.
If you are looking for one good classic smell, some thing a little more updated than Chanel 5, L'air du Temps, etc. definitely check this out!
Most Helpful Critical Review Strong classic musky dominant kind of perfume!
I was so excited to try and test this perfume. I used it for a week but sadly it hasnt grew on me. I guess this is not the perfume for me because it gives me headache. I always go for fresh and clean kinda scents. However this would be a good perfume to give to someone who likes strong classic musky dominant kind of perfume. It is very strong but it didnt last on me. Probably only lasted 3 to 4 hours. Maybe it has something to do with my body chemistry that its not staying on my skin. Although you dont have to use too much because it is that strong but the staying power is not that great. Overall, this would be a great gift to your mom or grandma but I would not be purchasing it for myself. Im not a fan of this perfume but I am glad and thankful, I get to try it. Just being honest and I hope this is helpful. Thank you!

When I first seen this New perfume Ulta presented I said to myself "I have to smell this!!". So when I finally got the chance too, I came back onto Ulta and purchased it. Now, it is one of my favorites. In conclusion, I also received a free gift because I purchased at a time when they were giving a Limited Edition Candle Set w/ purchase of a perfume. It was truly a Win Win with this one 😁 HAPPY CUSTOMER!!

I fell in love with its scent the first time I tried it. It's feminine and elegant. Great staying power. Not too intense. The perfect blend of powdery floral vanilla.
Jess629 from Maryland
I'm very picky when it comes to perfumes but I thought I would give this a try and I'm obsessed!! I absolutely love it!!
Sooo Good 🔥

This smells so amazing. You know when you smell perfume and you immediately know the notes have kissed you and taken you to new heights - flirty fun sexy classy - this one is it. I dream bigger and I know I'm worth it! Yes Sis! Some say this smells similar to YSL Black Opium which has been my favorite so by far. Yes it does have that slight similar vanilla note;just slightly - But Valentino is like her big sister. So much to admire and look up to! Just amazing. I am in love. I did not care for the Born in Roma a Valentinos flagship. Highly rated but nothing close to this one. Voce Viva is Phenomenal. Warm and Lovely. I am building my perfume collection and I have smelled a lot of scents. I don't like heavy scents since I get bad headaches so this one nailed it! This is my first perfume review and is my #1 Fragrance perfect for the holidays or that special date night. It Last a day and night. Ohh I can't say enough I love this one!! I got the biggest bottle.

Very light and citrusy scent . This a nice everyday and all year round fragrance. I would highly recommend if ur looking a signature scent
mackstonsmommy from undisclosed
I only tried a small sample of this, but I really enjoyed it! The scent is seductive mature. It really reminds me of YSL black opium, the notes smell very similar. It wore well, and lasted nicely throughout the day.
Femme Fatale Spicy and Sexy Scent!
FragNut from TEXAS
I bought this scent online based solely on the notes. I'm so glad I did!! What a sexy and warm classy perfume! I love the way it starts of with a hint of flirt and winds down to a beautiful alluring long lasting effect. I have gotten so many compliments from both men and women when I wear this perfume. I love Valentino fragrances but this one here is making its way to the top of my list. Highly recommend if you like classy warm scents.

I like the initial orange blossom scent that morphs into a vanilla fragrance, but for the price point I wouldnt rebuy.
heathert1f59 from undisclosed
The perfume smells good and last all day. I might purchase the product its a little strong for me. But overall it still smells good.
not my favorite
mariamartineze18da76 from undisclosed
This perfume last very long but just not my favorite from Valentino. It doesnt really remind me of anything special. It has a potent scent and I wore it out to dinner. Reminds me of a Chanel inspired scent nothing like Valentinos other scents.
wdychen from undisclosed
The scent is pleasant. Quite girlie and feminine. Not my preferred scent but would be perfect for someone who loves floral girlie scents.
kaceyw1195 from undisclosed
Great smelling perfume! Love how long lasting too. I have never purchased Valentino but definitely would consider switching to this scent in the future.
good perfume just not my everyday
hannakp from undisclosed
Im very particular when it comes to scents and my taste preference so its hard to really review for someone who may not have been able to smell. I received a small sample and the scent it tasteful and long lasting. But again not my everyday new fave
nice winter scent
janiejc3 from undisclosed
I thought this was a long lasting, great smelling perfume. It was not too sweet. A mature scent. It will be perfect for fall and winter months.
nice and light!
themodishmix from undisclosed
I found the scent to be nice but unfortunately the sample size left much to be desired...
Smells like grandma
DN from TX
I got a sample size of this perfume. It smells good, but it smells and reminds me of old lady. The smell lasts pretty long though, I sprayed it on my neck and I still smell it hours later.
I'm in love

I get the sample today and I'm in love with this perfume I definitely gonna order the big one !!!
Martha from NJ
Got this in a sample size as a free gift and LOVE the scent. It's unique and not a scent I would usually go for but this combination is fantastic. It's strong without being too overpowering and still feminine.
Spicy and Sexy
michelledawnnn from undisclosed
I loved this scent, it made me feel confident and I felt like it was sexy and subtle. You do need to let it breathe and it is a more mature scent. I like wearing this to work and in dates and it is also long lasting! Its a good fall scent with a good balance of fruit and musk.
Smells good but
marianap1 from undisclosed
This perfume smells very good, I feel its very classy and fancy . Its a fall/winter scent as its not very fruity or sweet. However, it didnt last long on my skin. Probably only lasted couple hours. I feel disappointed.
keniasoto from undisclosed
Never in a million years I wouldve thought to try this perfume. I finished my sample a purchased a bigger bottle. I absolutely love the scent. Its not over powering its very soft and feminine very long lasting too.
a little too sweet
ashrugg from undisclosed
This fragrance is just a little too sweet for my taste. I prefer other fragrances over this one. Maybe its just my skin chemistry but it was overwhelming.
great fall fragrance
shanique_88 from undisclosed
