Rihanna Rebels with Second Scent, Rebelle
Following in the footsteps of her highly successful first scent, Reb’l Fleur, Rebelle is in part the result of a video poll the singer ran on her site; when asking fans if they feel more like a rebel or a flower, 68 percent said rebel — and Rebelle was born.
“My grandmother in Barbados used to call me her Rebel Flower,” Rihanna told PEOPLE when her first fragrance launched earlier this year. As for the decision to create a scent? “Over the years, I layered many different scents to get something that was truly my own,” she explained. “But I wanted … something that said, ‘Rihanna was here.’ Something delicious and special, a fragrance with subtle hints that linger and leave a sexy memory.”
While Reb’l Fleur has notes of fruits, florals, vanilla and amber, Rebelle boasts wafts of strawberry, ginger, plum, cacao, coffee and musk — not quite as “dark” as the original.
Rebelle will retail for $49 for a 1.7-oz. spray, $59 for 3.4-oz. spray and $30 for a 6.7-oz. body lotion. For the holidays, the scent will come in a special set that includes the star’s just-released CD, Talk That Talk, plus a bottle of Reb’l Fleur. Tell us: Are you excited for Rihanna’s second scent?
