Rihanna Reb’l Fleur

My opinion on Rihanna has always been that I would probably enjoy her much more as a model than as a singer. No one can deny that the girl is drop-dead, but I find her voice to be weak and nasal. I also feel more than a little conflicted about some (hell, most) of her choices regarding Chris Brown. I feel no such conflicts towards Rihanna’s perfume, Reb’l Fleur. I unequivocally hate this perfume. Reb’l Fleur is a vile and loud fruity fragrance.┬áIt reeks of generic “plump fruits” (Macy’s doesn’t know what fruits they are, and neither do I) and desperation. Reb’l Fleur smells more like an alcoholic drink, something bright pink with an awful name like “French Kiss” or “Redheaded Slut”, than a perfume. This is worse than most celebrity fragrances, which is setting the bar pretty low. If you simply must have a fragrance by an R&B diva, please do us all a favor and opt for Beyonce’s Heat, a boring but inoffensive punch bowl-type fragrance.
