It smells really good! But after an hour or two, u can't detect it much anymore. It's light but it smells like a bouquet of flowers plucked from some heavenly garden. I can't decide if it's worth buying because it just doesn't last but it smells more beautiful than any other scent i've tried!

I sniffed a sample of this in the departmental store. It smells divine, so beautifully flowery and mysterious and ladylike. My boyfriend thought it was lovely too.
I did not buy it as i had already just bought D&G The One Desire, which was pricey. But I'll definitely buy it soon. I only wish it were an EDP instead of an EDT, which doesn't last as long usually.

Valentina Acqua Floreale is almost pure citrus for the first five to ten minutes. As well as the starring bergamot and orange blossom, I think there is also a zesty lemon note.
The main plus of this perfume for me is how light and sheer the tuberose is; I normally dislike perfumes with it as I find it heavy and migraine inducing, so it nice to ind a fragrance including it that I can wear. It is actually the watery orange blossom note that is the strongest, followed quickly by the neroli, which combines with the remaining citrus notes perfectly for a clean undertone. The jasmine is almost as sheer as the tuberose, but it is there.
The base notes are a real surprise; after a few hours Valentina Acqua Floreale transforms from a citrussy floral to a warm oriental, the change sounds like a miss-match, but it works. The sweet amber and earthy patchouli mixes nicely with the spicy neroli and warms up the reminder of the fragrance.
Official scent notes: bergamot, orange blossom, neroli, mimosa, tuberose, jasmine, amber and patchouli.
Overall: Valentina Acqua Floreale is 'nice'. It's easy to wear and is unoffensive to other people. On the downside it is a bit too safe for my tastes, and it doesn't wear for long, which is disappointing for the price.
If the longevity were better this would be a four lippie review, but as it is I'm not sure if I'll re-buy Valentina Acqua Floreale. Is Paris Hilton Tokyo Passport still available? That smells similar, is cheaper and wears for longer.

I was given a sample of this and I tried it three times. It's a lot for me, which means I kind of like the fragrance.
To my snose it smells mainly tuberose, rich and gorgeous, but never as heady as other tuberoses: here it' surrounded by a bunch of spring flowers (namely, mimosa, orange flower and neroli) and a rich squeeze of bergamot which make it cheerful and, yes, springlike.
It's very different from the original Valentina EDP. At first I swear I can smell a light leather note that vanishes after a few minutes: I bet it must come from the patchouly-amr combo as basenotes.
I've got a thing against patchouly overdose in commercial fragrances, lately, so I may be taken with a grain of salt when I state this fragrance ends up smelling too generic to be full bottle worthy: it's my opinion, anyway.
