It seems that Rihanna is joining the ever-growing number of celebrities that have a signature perfume. The 22-year-old singer from Barbados is set to launch her first fragrance next month. For her new project, reports say that RiRi has teamed up with Parlux Fragrances Inc. The perfume is described as “a musky mix of vanilla, patchouli and amber”.
The name of the perfume is Reb’l Fleur and is inspired by the singer’s grandmother. “My grandmother in Barbados used to call me her Rebel Flower,” Rihanna told People.com.
As for the special scent, Rihanna said that over the years she looked for that unique scent able to suit and reflect her personality. “Over the years, I layered many different scents to get something that was truly my own. But I wanted… something that said, ‘Rihanna was here’. Something delicious and special, a fragrance with subtle hints that linger and leave a sexy memory.”
The singer made a statement in a press release saying that she wanted to come up with something new and bring a fragrance characterized by uniqueness when it comes to its scent and for the bottle too.
“I believe a woman should dare to be different – willing to live her life for herself and not for other people,” Rihanna said in the press release. “This fragrance is about my passion for individuality – being expressive and empowering, yes, but also emotional and intriguing. I promise you Reb’l Fleur will not be easily forgotten”, Rihanna added.
According to “People”, the musky mix of vanilla, patchouli and amber will be released in US department stores in February and it will retail for $49 for a 1.7 oz bottle.
