Do you want to try another fascinating celebrity-inspired perfume which was recently given the Best Celebrity Fragrance Award at the UK FIFI Awards 2014? RiRi did it again, adding another winning prize to her endless collection, this time from The Fragrance Foundation; a non-profit-making educational organization setting standards of excellence for the fragrance industry in the UK. Founded in New York in 1949 by Chanel, Elizabeth Arden, Helena Rubinstein, Coty, Guerlain and Parfums Weil, it has become a substantial organization in the United States and is well known internationally as the forum of the fragrance industry.
In this awarded perfume – launched in November 2012 – Rihanna unleashes her inhibitions with the scent’s prominent top notes which give fans a glimpse into her native Barbados with layers of Guava Nectar, Mandarin and Pear. The center of the fragrance opens into a sultry softness with a blend of Orange Blossom, Gardenia Petals and Velvet Jasmine Sambac. The seductive, milky gourmand base weaves together Sandalwood and Second-skin Musk, with the fresh and feminine hints of Vanilla Orchid, rounding out a fragrance that is at once daring, yet accessible.
I also like the bottle which reveals the artist’s softer side. The lines are clear; design is minimal and evokes sophistication. It talks about relaxing moments, natural beauty, pureness and originality! I’m ready to indulge myself in this gentle, refreshing aura!
