Valentino Garavani

Valentino with Liz Hurley

Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani was born on 11 May 1932, best known mononymously as Valentino, is an Italian fashion designer, the founder of the Valentino brand and company. His main lines include Valentino, Valentino Garavani, Valentino Roma, and R.E.D. Valentino.

Valentino was born in Voghera, in the province of Pavia, Lombardy, Italy. His mother named him after screen idol Rudolph Valentino. 

He became interested in fashion while in primary school in his native Voghera, Lombardy, northern Italy, when he apprenticed under his aunt Rosa and local designer Ernestina Salvadeo, an aunt of noted artist Aldo Giorgini.

Valentino then moved to Paris to pursue this interest with the help of his mother Teresa de Biaggi and his father Mauro Garavani. There he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne.

His first choice for an apprenticeship, in Paris, was Jacques Fath, then Balenciaga. He found an apprenticeship with Jean Dessès where he helped Countess Jacqueline de Ribes sketch her dress ideas. He then joined Guy Laroche for two years. At Jean Dessès, Valentino sketched furiously, between helping with window dressing and greeting clients for the daily 2:30 pm private showings. 

Most of his early sketches were lost. However, at a Rome exhibition in 1991 a smattering of them went on display and then-current clients such as Marie-Hélène de Rothschild and Elizabeth Taylor marveled that the DNA of Valentino’s style was already apparent in the layers of white pleats and animal prints.

Valentino S.p.A

The company founded in 1960 when Garavani opened a fashion house on Via Condotti in Rome, Italy with the backing of his father and his father’s associate Giancarlo Giammetti.

Valentino S.p.A. is an Italian clothing company founded in 1960 by Valentino Garavani and part of Valentino Fashion Group, which in turn is owned by the State of Qatar through Mayhoola for Investments S.P.C. Since October 2008, the creative director is Pier Paolo Piccioli. Alessandra Facchinetti was Valentino’s creative designer from 2007 to 2008. Valentino is headquartered in Milan, while the creative direction is in Rome.

Since 2010, Valentino Perfumes has belonged to the Puig company. Its fragrances have included: Valentino Classique for women (1978), Vendetta By Valentino for women (1991), Very Valentino for women (1998), Very Valentino for Men for men (1999), Valentino Gold for women (2002), V for women (2005), Valentino V Absolu for women (2006), Valentino V Ete By Valentino for women (2006), Rock’n’Rose for women (2006), V pour Homme for men (2006), Rock n’ Rose Couture for women (2007), and Valentina for women (2011). In 2020, Valentino Beauty announces the release of a new perfume, Valentino Voca Viva Perfume, and announces Lady Gaga as its égérie

Fragrance Wheel

Description of Notes

  • Top notes: Also called the head notes. The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person’s initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Examples of top notes include mint, lavender and coriander.
  • Middle notes: Also referred to as heart notes. The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to the dissipation of the top note. The middle note compounds form the “heart” or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. Examples of middle notes include seawater, sandalwood and jasmine.
  • Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and “deep” and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application. Examples of base notes include tobacco, amber and musk.

What was our Findings

Valentino Voce Viva Perfume is a fantastic fragrance, not just for the value but also for the quality of the product. This perfume will last you all day, so 1 spray and off you trot for the day. Yes there were some bad reviews out there that we found but that`s a story that is consistent to all perfume and aftershaves. With a starting price of £47.00 or $60.00 for my American readers it`s a great purchase for the price and longevity of the perfume. Well lets talk about the scent.

When you first apply Voce Viva you get the scent of a very fruity scent of mandarin and it continues through to the scent of orange blossom which is why the perfume keeps on giving. Finally as we have talked about before the musk takes control as it mellows out which will give it that extra longevity.

Public Reviews

  • I couldn’t wait to try this perfume after seeing the advert on TV. It really lives up to what you would expect from a luxury perfume it smells amazing.
  • I bought this for myself after receiving a sample. It is now my favourite perfume it’s absolutely beautiful.
  • The Valentino Voce Viva is a lovely deep and spicy fragrance good for the evening. A great scent for an evening out! Would definitely recommend for a nice gift for the festive season for that same special someone!
  • First of all i would definitely appreciate how beautiful the bottle is. Lots of details went into it, even the cap looks so sexy. Well regarding the fragrance itself i think it is perfect for both day and night time. But i think the flowery smell is over powering. There is a hint of citrusy smell in it, although if it was a bit more it would have been more beautiful and fresh. Still lovely fragrance and stays in for very long time.
  • I was so pleased to get the Valentino Voce Viva perfume, it smells gorgeous. It’s not overpowering, it’s a very feminine fragrance, slightly floral but with delicate undertones which I love. The bottle itself is beautiful, well made and looks stunning on my dressing table. 
  • This is a stunning fragrance, I like a long lasting perfume and this did not disappoint. The fragrance had an almost regal air to it. Highly recommended!
Romance is in the air!

Reasons to consider when purchasing your Perfume.

The reason why some perfumes are expensive really depends on what ingredients it contains which is why fake perfumes are cheaper. Because of this, the products are not natural but man made, to actually copy the scent.

Which is really a false saving because you will over time you will use twice the amount of the fake product for it to smell for the same time period as the original.

There are lots of reasons to consider when purchasing your perfume as the following will explain;

Description of Types of Perfume

  • Perfume or Extrait –  in English is known as perfume extract, pure perfume, or simply perfume: 15–40% aromatic compounds. 
  • Esprit of Parfum (ESDP) –  15–30% aromatic compounds, a seldom used strength concentration in between EDP and perfume.
  • Eau de parfum (EdP) or parfum de toilette (PdT) –  10–20% aromatic compounds (typically ~15%). Sometimes called “eau de parfum” or “millésime”; parfum de toilette is a less common term, most popular in the 1980s. That is generally analogous to eau de parfum.
  • Eau de toilette (EDT) –  5–15% aromatic compounds (typically ~10%); This is the staple for most masculine perfumes.
  • Eau de Cologne ( EDC ) –  Often simply called cologne: 3–8% aromatic compounds (typically ~5%).
  • Eau fraiche – Products sold as “splashes”, “mists”, “veils” and other imprecise terms. Generally these products contain 3% or less aromatic compounds and are diluted with water rather than oil or alcohol.

Once you have purchased your product, where do you store it?

Well most people will put their aftershave in the bathroom or on their bedside cabinet by the window, but this couldn’t be worse for your perfume.

Perfumes hate direct sunshine and damp places like a typical bathroom, so my advice would be to store it in a dark corner of your bedroom and it will last as long as the manufacturer specifications.
