Rihanna’s Fragrance, ‘Reb’l Fluer,’ Hits Stores In February
What’s that smell? It’s Rihanna’s new fragrance ‘Reb’l Fluer,’ and it will be in stores next month. ‘Reb’l Fluer’ translates to “Rebel Flower,” a nickname given to Rihanna by her grandmother when whe was growing up in Barbados.
The R&B and pop star’s scent combined the scents of tuberose, violet, hibiscus, coconut, vanilla, patchouli and amber and was created by Caroline Sabas and Marypierre Julien of Givaudan.
Bottles of Eau de Parfum Spray and body lotion at department stores are set to be sold nationwide, beginning in February. They retail from $30 to $59.
“My grandmother in Barbados used to call me her Rebel Flower,” People magazine quoted Rihanna as saying. “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.’”
Her scent’s manufacturer, Parlux, also offers fragrances endorsed by Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson and Queen Latifah.
