Rihanna "Rebelle"

Out of the Rihanna perfume trio, "Rebelle", Reb'l Fleur and "Nude", I like "Rebelle" best.

Description- "...a fruity floral with strong gourmand chords. Top notes encompass plum, strawberry and ginger, a heart offers heliotrope, vanilla orchid and cocoa absolute, while a base features a trail of musk, coffee, patchouli and amber."

This perfume makes for a great Autumn/Winter fragrance. The fruits are more of the heavier kind, with plum being a forerunner. It does have a rich mocha gourmand side, but I find it works to compliment the dark notes of patchouli, amber and musk, sweet, but not at all cloying.


The base notes combined with the spice of ginger gives an oriental feel to this perfume.

The drydown is my favourite stage. The perfume at this point is sensual with the musk, and remains so rich throughout.
