Love or hate Rihanna, she is going nowhere soon.
I rather like her feisty attitude but never did I think I would openly adore a celebrity fragrance
yet along came Rihanna Reb'l Fleur Eau de Parfum and changed my mind in an instant!
Rihanna Reb'l Fleur Eau de Parfum may not come in the most beautiful bottle but props to Rihanna for picking one style and sticking with it (the Rouge scent aside). Look a little further than the packaging and you are greeted with a warm, fruity and slight spicy fragrance that is hard to define.
"This fragrance is about my passion for individuality - being expressive and empowering, yes, but also emotional and intriguing. I wear my fragrance, I don’t let it wear me."- Rihanna.
Nailed it! In some senses Rihanna Reb'l Fleur Eau de Parfum reminds me of Jimmy Choo Exotica and then I get a whiff of it again and it smells nothing like said Jimmy Choo scent. It is beautiful, fruity yet not tart or overly sweet and super sexy. Yes really! Notes include Hawaiian Hibiscus Flower, Violet, Tuberose, Coconut Water, Red Berries, Peach, vanilla, Patchouli, Amber and Musk. If I'm honest the notes that come through the strongest are the berry, peach and vanilla accents. Although Rihanna as a celebrity may not be your cup of tea I do urge you to try this out, especially if you like something a little less run of the mill!
Rihanna Reb'l Fleur Eau de Parfum £19.50-£24.50 via The Perfume Shop - link.
