Parlux introduced Reb'l Fleur, the first fragrance from Rihanna, the world's best selling pop female recording artist, at TFWA World Exhibition in Cannes (France). The perfume will be launched in 2011 in the US with an international roll-out following shortly.




























"Daring, sexy and truly memorable, Reb'l Fleur is as much in tune with Barbados-born Rihanna's roots as it is with the glamour of her present life in New York City."


The fragrance is an intense and daring fruity chypre, composed of sophisticated floral notes: tuberose, violet and hibiscus, -  with a splash of coconut water, - over the light and smooth base, the combination of the final notes evokes the impression of warm skin. The perfume was created by Caroline Sabas and Marypierre Julien of Givaudan.

The elegant bottle, which glows from within, is beautifully designed in the shape of a high heel. The bottle is adorned with silken ribbons and a golden ring on the stopper.

I AM AN ISLAND GIRL AND JUST TRIED THIS FRAGRANCE AT MACYS YESTERDAY. I CAN STILL SMELL IT ON MY WRIST TODAY. THERE IS A LOT OF FRUITS BUT NOT TOO SWEET WITH A SMOKIE UNDER TONE. IF YOU LOVE PERFUME LIKE I DO YOU WOULD ADD THIS TO YOUR COLLECTION BECAUSE I SURE WILL BY THE END OF THE MONTH. IT IS BETTER THAN MOST CELEBRITY FRAGRANCES THAT I HAVE TRIED. THE ONLY OTHER CELEBRITY I HAVE IN MY COLLECTION IS HALLE.

Yes, pure, it is still incorrect. When people mentioned the grammatical issue on various internet forums, Rihanna said that it's two unrelated nouns, like House Dog. But that doesn't actually make sense either, so I guess it's a lession to be extra careful about easily visible tattoos.

Either way, the bottle has grown on me and I'm sure I will have to test this when it comes out. I'm hoping that the violet really shines through.

Indeed, the name is a nightmare. As far as I know (maybe some French guys can correct it :) ) in French an adjective follows a noun, not the opposite. Today I saw another article about this perfume and there was Rihanna's photo with "Rebelle fleur" tattoo on her neck. Is it incorrect then?

The bottle was designed to look like a high heel (put upside down). Somehow it reminds me of Beyonce's Heat or True Star by T. Hilfinger (which Beyonce used to promote).

Let's give it a chance, though...

@Thalia Not only misspelled, but also not grammatically correct, lol.

It's celebrity AND it's misspelled -- it would need to be the best scent in the world to overcome that one-two whammy of trashiness.

Celebrity fragrances are more popular in USA then in the Europe. Still once in a while I find good celebrity fragrance that will live longer then the splash of fame of the celeb that is named after. I trust Sandrina's nose that will be good one.

Congratulations Sandrina for exclusive pictures of new Rihanna fragrance directly from the expo in the Cannes.

Kisses from Cote d'Azur :) Weather is great, as the new fragrance of Rihanna! I really like the juice, it's fruity-chypre, warm and intoxicating, very essential, strong, long lasting, truly daring.

Bottle is very beautiful, looks so luxurious with the golden ring on the stopper.

More news coming soon!

Yeah not the best bottle design but I'm still looking forward to it. Let's hope the juice will make up for the bottle design. LOL! Maybe it's better in person. Hopefully it is! Can't wait Rihanna! : )
