From Emma Watson and Kate Bosworth, to Rose McGowan and Sarah Jessica Parker: These are the women of style who wear Valentino.

The inspired use of white truffle also brings an earthiness to the scent, a touch of grownup experience to counter the sweetness and prettiness at the core of Valentina’s olfactory mix.
Valentina’s couture-inspired flacon—sculpted fabric rosettes wink at the Parisian atelier roots of the brand—provides yet another reason to sample or collect this new floral-with-a-twist.
