Valentino Donna Born In Roma
Valentino Donna Born In Roma has been a big hit since its launch in 2017.
Personally, I think the original Born In Roma perfume is the best fragrance in the range because it’s interesting, can be worn throughout the year and has good lasting power.
I’d wear Born In Roma on a night out or date night, and Yellow Dream or Coral Fantasy in hot weather.
Valentino Donna Born In Roma Intense
2023 sees the release of Valentino Donna Born In Roma Intense. This new perfume is totally different to the original Born In Roma and doesn’t have any of the fruity notes we have come to associate with the range. Instead, Born In Roma Intense is a deep Amber fragrance which is sultry and warm; it feels like a winter fragrance to me. Benzoin combines with Vanilla and a hint of Jasmine to create a fragrance which reminds me of Mugler’s Alien Goddess.
Valentino Donna Born In Roma Yellow Dream
Valentino Donna Born In Roma Yellow Dream is a much lighter and fresher fragrance compared to its predecessors.
As the yellow colour suggests, Born In Roma Yellow Dream is all about a zesty fresh Lemon. This is accompanied by a rose and clean musk. I find that the Lemon note brings out the fresh green notes in rose; image a rose just cut, covered in morning dew.
This simple fragrance is ideal for summer and humid days.
The lasting power is nowhere near as good as Valentino Donna Born In Roma original but that is typical of citrus scents.
Valentino Donna Born In Roma Coral Fantasy
Valentino Donna Born In Roma Coral Fantasy is a fruity summer version of the original Born In Roma perfume.
Kiwi and Orange are the fruity top notes. These are followed by Jasmine, Rose and Ambrette Musk which give the fragrance a feminine floral body.
Valentino Donna Born In Roma Coral Fantasy is an Eau De Parfum and I find it lasts longer than Yellow Dream. I recommend it for use during the day, any time of year.
