MILAN — Building on the success of last year’s award-winning Valentina, Valentino and Puig are launching Valentina Assoluto, which departs from the floral notes of the original eau de parfum and offers instead a deeper, more sensual absolute fragrance.
“This perfume is a real creation,” said Olivier Cresp of Firmenich, the nose who worked on both Valentina (with Alberto Morillas) and Valentina Assoluto. In a phone interview, Cresp explained that instead of starting off with the same olfactive group and changing a few ingredients, he chose an entirely different olfactive family — chypre — and then developed a bridge to the original fragrance. Valentina Assoluto, he said, is “much more nocturnal, more seductive,” than Valentina.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
