Summary: Update *8/22/2014* I still feel the same way about this scent. It is absolutely delicious. However, it does not last. I was worried I received a boot-leg formula and obtained a few sample from Macy's. Same experience. I had others smell my wrist after 45 minutes and it was undetectable.
Summary: This perfume smells amazing. It's a very sensual, feminine floral scent with a darker deeper base. Unfortunately, the scent disappears completely within a couple of hours. Buy the big bottle if you plan to use this--you'll have to keep reapplying.
Summary: I bought it thinking it to be for casual use ,but it is very strong and after an hour or two it starts getting on my nerves ,otherwise a nice perfume which one can wear to a party but not for all day use
Excerpt: Valentino Valentina Assoluto Eau de Parfum 50ml I first tried this from a little sachet pad in a magazine last year and went onto the website as suggested to obtain a free sample of the EDP. It took many months for my EDP ampoule to arrive and I must admit it has been overlooked.
