Don't let the pink in the bottle fool you.
Rogue, the fourth fragrance in Rihanna's growing cosmetics empire, is anything but the sticky sweet scent that one may anticipate out of a celebrity perfume. Not that we would expect anything less from Rihanna, whose persona has evolved into something similar to this scent: bold, sensual, and flirtatious. Working closely with a French perfumer to create the scent, over 300 different fragrance combinations were tested before Rihanna decided on the final formula.
The bottle is as bold and flirty as the scent, featuring inverted spikes on the bottom and a stingray skin inspired cap to top it all off. With a blend of jasmine, plum and patchouli, Rogue is best fit for an evening out or for that matter an evening in, especially as the weather turns a bit cooler. It goes on a little bit spicy at first, thanks to top notes of pink peppercorn and bergamot, but leaves a rich, solid base of sandalwood, amber and musk.
Rogue by Rihanna ranges from $18 for the rollerball up to $69 for the largest decked out bottle. It is available for purchase online through Perfumes by Rihanna, and at Macy's, Dillard's, and Belk. For a limited time, a stingray skin inspired knuckle clutch is a free gift with a $69 purchase.
