Yonce. Sasha Fierce. B. Beyonce. Call the R&B songstress any of the four but just don't forget to mention her rise to fame. Since 1997 she's continued to challenge herself on every platform: music, acting, rapping, clothing line and fragrances. And even though her alter ego Sasha Fierce was killed off in 2010, she just blended the other personality into her ever-growing sex appeal.
As with Heat perfume, her new scent Rise is a bit strong and best for formal events. After a few minutes or so, it softly calms down into a powdery scent.
Rise includes top notes of Italian bergamot, golden apricot, ice basil sorbet; middle notes of gold symphony orchid, freesia blossom, natural jasmine sambac; and base notes of autumn woods accord, cashmere musk, vetiver extract.
Rise isn't a fragrance worth running to the front of a cosmetics line, but it's a pretty scent. All of her perfumes are reminiscent of someone much older than the singer who is barely over 30.
However, the pop and R&B artist did remind her listeners that she's a grown woman, didn't she?
