As I was driving to work this morning I realised that it has been a rather long time since I have done a product review, and whats more it is even longer since I have done a review on a perfume. I racked my brains and scoured the shelves about all the new and exciting spring fragrances and then it hit me (not physically….) – the brand new scent from Beyonce that has been released this very month and is flying off our shelves right now is the perfect passion producer!
Queen B has indeed been a busy bee – not only did she put on a stunning performance at the Brits last night, this will be her third pillar fragrance, following the success of her Beyonce Pulse and Beyonce Heat perfumes. The timing of this fragrance is no coincidence – Beyonce has also released a song from the ‘Epic’ movie soundtrack entitled ‘Rise Up’ and this stunning fragrance was named after that.
This scent has undoubtedly got the sweet smell of success encased in the box – first thing to note is the eyecatching shape of the bottle that is a striking gold flacon – modelled on the most luxurious of high rise buildings such as the Empire State Building in New York, this bottle is sure to reign over most other scents on any dresser.
Now we come to the smell – just like the bottle it is full of luxury. With this fragrance, Beyonce is keen to promote her beliefs and encourage women to feel empowered. “The spirit of RISE encourages women to be all that we are,” she said in a press release. For Beyonce, gold symbolises luminosity, optimism and strength and the fragrance is all about women finding their inner strength that makes them so beautiful. As with her other fragrances, this perfume is a fruity floral fragrance and is centred around orchids, with top notes of bergamot and golden apricot, middle notes of gold symphony orchid, freesia blossom and natural jasmine sambac. The bottom notes round off the scent with autumn woods accord, cashmere musk and vetiver extract.
Available in three sizes – 30ml, 50ml and 100ml, this has the potential to be THE scent of 2014. It has a simple but strong message behind it for all women out there – it is a war cry, an invitation for women to be all that they want to be in life. No need to dream anymore, now is the time to make those dreams come true. And that is why every woman should have a bottle of this beautiful, light scent adorning their shelves that is perfect to wear in the morning, noon or night.
So – have you tried this sumptuous scent? What do you think? As you know I’m not a fan of celebrity scents as a rule but I can honestly say that this is one of the nicest fragrances I have smelt in a long time. It is perfect for spring and is one of those scents that lingers on clothes and will keep you happy all day long. Let me know if you agree – I’m not promising you’ll look or feel like Beyonce overnight if you buy this fragrance, but I do think you’ll be pleasantly surprised! What’s more – here at Perfume Click we’ve got all the sizes available at almost half the price of the RRP!
Have a lovely week – enjoy the sunshine!
Lots of love
