All hail Queen B! Since storming onto the world stage with her girl group ‘Destiny’s Child,’ Beyoncè has run the world. This fiercely beautiful songstress tackles every endeavour wholeheartedly and is constantly a pillar of strength. Definitely one of my role models, Beyoncè is not afraid to own who she is and stand out from a crowd.
‘Rise’ is Beyoncè’s sixth fragrance and is definitely one to remember. I would describe it as a rich floral with a hint of musk. It is classic, sophisticated and definitely suits Beyoncè’s new ‘grown-woman’ image. I feel that it pays homage to old Hollywood glamour. It has top notes of Italian Bergamot, Golden Apricot and Iced Basil Sorbet; middle notes of Gold Symphony Orchid, Freesia Blossom and Natural Jasmine Sambar; and finally, base notes of Autumn Woods Accord, Cashmere Musk and Vetiver Extract.
According to Beyonce www.beyonceparfums.com, ‘Rise’ is “a rich and intoxicating luminous floral that leaves a lasting impression. Beyoncè Rise, the scent of empowerment, features Beyoncè’s favourite, the Orchid. The Gold Symphony Orchid and Golden Apricot form a delightful duet creating a bold statement that is also playful.” I was delighted to learn that the Orchid is Beyoncè’s favourite flower, as it is also mine! The Orchid is definitely a prominent note in the scent, which I love!
The ‘Rise’ bottle is tall, slim and chic, which I love because it can easily be thrown into your handbag or tucked safely into a compartment. The transparent bottle reveals a regal gold liquid and the lid is a cluster of gold pinnacles.
‘Rise’ is probably best described as an evening scent that should be teamed with your favourite ‘Freakum Dress,’ but I say why not wear it during the day? The woman that wears this during the day will definitely leave an impression and something about the richness of the scent says that she means business.
Clearly, I’m a HUGE Beyoncè fan, so I am delighted that a 50ml bottle of ‘Rise’ is the the very first prize I’ll be offering through my blog. This competition is a game of skill and is open to Australian residents only (sorry international readers!)
