PERFUME 002 | REB'L FLEUR BY RIHANNA


 “Bad feels so good.”

When I was given this perfume for Christmas two years ago, I wrote it off and decided to regift it to someone much younger (everyone regifts right?). After leaving it in my drawer for a few months I decided to have a sniff of it in Superdrug. To my surprise, I loved it. So much so that I used it every day and have just repurchased a larger bottle. I've never been one for celebrity scents, but this is one of my favourite everyday perfumes that I have EVER used, and so maybe I shouldn't be so reluctant to try some others.

Reb'l Fleur is described as a fruity chypre. The initial smell can be overpoweringly sweet, but the dry down blooms into some lovely florals with hints of vanilla and coconut. Containing top notes of red berries, plum, peach and poinciana; heart notes of Hawaiian hibiscus flower, violet, tuberose and coconut; and then base notes of vanilla, patchouli, amber, musk, this fragrance reflects Rihanna's Barbadian roots, but also her present glamorous jetsetting life. Though Reb'l Fleur is a fantastic summer fragrance, reminding me of days spent of sunny, beachy islands, it works throughout the seasons. 

I bought mine from Cheapsmells which always has a wide range of perfumes at fantastic value. Can anyone else recommend any other celebrity perfumes?
