Valentino is known for its captivating beauty from the couture runway to the beauty department, and their latest fragrances don’t disappoint. The Italian fashion house launched two new perfumes: Born in Roma, Donna and Uomo.
Roma is all about an attitude towards life. When you have a culture, you have an identity.
Pierpaolo Piccioli, Valentino creative director
Both fragrances are designed with traditional Valentino rockstud spikes paying homage to the rich history of the brand, while the scents are both bring very different energies. Born in Roma, Donna, has a blend with notes of wood and vanilla and Born in Roma, Uomo boats hints of ginger spice, ‘woody vetiver’, and mineral salt (yes, salt!). But while the women’s scent is out now, Valentino’s men’s fragrance launches in October.
19-year-old Sudanese-Australian Adut Akech, together with Anwar Hadid, Gigi and Bella Hadid’s model (and jewelry designer) younger bro, is the new face of two scents, Donna and Uomo, that make up Valentino new fragrance collection. True to its name, Born in Roma, Inez and Vinoodh photographed the pair in Rome in the dead of winter – unfortunately not at the best time of year for romping around in a sleeveless dress. In the campaign, Adut wears a pink Valentino frock while Anwar adds some edge rocking a biker jacket.
Valentino Donna Born in Rome
For women, Donna Born In Roma a delicate oriental/floral perfume. The new perfume is a new hit sensation with a sensual scent, very soft, and feminine. Valentino fans will find it really attractive and daring due to its modern haute couture floriental aroma as well as a modern edge fragrance.

A couture fragrance made of 3 jasmine flowers and accords blended with Bourbon vanilla, one of the most expensive ingredients in modern perfumery. This is twisted with a cool facet of pink pepper and a woody overdose, giving this couture feminine fragrance a modern edge.
