Smells identical to how a milkshake with spoiled / sour milk tastes
Once as a kid I made a milkshake with some very recently spoiled milk...it wasn't curdled or anything it had just recently gone bad so it had this slight sour taste to it. As I drank the entire thing (vanilla ice cream, little bit of chocolate) and it had this weird sweet and sour flavor. At the time, I didn't know what spoiled milk was so didn't think much about it, some time later I had spoiled milk by itself and then realized why that milkshake tasted so weird.

the smell of Valiant is identical to how that milkshake with sour milk tasted.

The other thing I can think of that comes to mind with this is a banana peel (specifically the peel) when that banana is rotting and completely black. There is a dirty, sour smell paired with still a sweetness from the banana itself.

I think I'm getting this from these notes:
Ylang-Ylang - sweetness with sourness
Oris - Dirty almost soil smell
Petitgrain - woody bitterness
Jasmine - slight moth ball smell.
Rose - Typical rose scent.

Thats's what dominates this scent, and I just don't think it's good. I think people associate the $1200+ it costs and think because it that it has to be amazing, and there are reviews with people saying it's incredible...sorry it's just not.

Blue Sapphire Supercharged on the other hand, worth the $1200+

To me Valiant was nothing more than a luxury/elegant, feminine, sweet floral scent with some citrus on top and a heavy base of beauty cream.

Scent
Initially uplifting and citric-fruity, this slightly earthy, yet smooth fruity-floral Spring fragrance, settles to a warm spicy-woody base.

It’s a pleasant scent but absolutely not worth the money
