RiRi by Rihanna is eighth scent in star’s portfolio

Rihanna is a woman who has many sides—sexy, fashion-loving, flirty. Her handlers and marketers leverage this chameleon-like nature through her many perfumes: The entertainer’s Nude was a pared-down and sultry scent, while Rogue was bold and confident; and now we have RiRi. This eighth perfume in the singer’s fragrance portfolio is meant to be the epitome of the star’s glam and girly side.

RiRi - Press Release ENRiRi by Rihanna opens with tropical, fruity notes of passionfruit, rum, cassis and mandarin, and then moves swiftly into a floral heart of freesia, orange blossom and jasmine. At RiRi’s base: musk, vanilla and sandalwood.

To sell this fruity-floral perfume? Why a pink-wrapped Rihanna of course. This time, she’s cloaked as Marilyn—remember Gentleman Prefer Blondes?—coupled with Barbie-inspired makeup and air-brushed-to-oblivion skin.

RaRa RiRi.
