According to Rihanna, women should feel “what they want from TF”
It goes without saying that gender norms affect us all, women (and / or those who present themselves as women) – and women of color, in particular – are often historically the hardest hit by discrimination and marginalization. gender-based. From our cups and body shapes, to body hair and even natural body odor, women are evaluated, criticized and watched – and even when she steps into the scent game, a bad girl seems to have had enough.
“We’re screwed most of the time, and it’s not because we want to be like that,” Rihanna said in a Fenty Parfum trailer released on Sunday. “It’s because we have a hand, and guess what?” We are not running away from it, we are facing it. And so, you want me to tell you how a woman is supposed to feel? But damn they wanna feel.
The message is also evident in the composition of the perfumes, described as: “Complex, vibrant, raw, sensual, spicy and sweet at the same time … a deeply intimate fragrance that is all you feel, all you are and all you want to be!”
What does this mean in olfactory terms? Developed with Louis Vuitton Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, who describes the formula as an “elixir of love” (h / t the cut) the distinctive deep amber bottle (“Brown is my favorite color. Brown is who I am. Brown is what I come from,” says Rih) contains top notes of mandarin and blueberry with middle notes of rose Bulgarian, geranium and magnolia and base notes of musk and patchouli. And while the new billionaire (“God is good,“she notes) only refers to women in her teaser for the highly anticipated scent, quite interesting, it’s meant to be unisex. In fact,” interesting “and” expensive “seemed to be the most consistent reactions. to several online reviewers who collected an early sample.
“It doesn’t give you a male, it doesn’t give you a female …” says YouTuber Kensthetic, pointing out that the scent (which she “really, really liked”) also smelled without season and “luxury.” I am TeshaMarie agreed that Fenty Parfum smells ‘expensive’, adding “I wouldn’t say it’s something a lot of women would appreciate; I feel like more men would appreciate this scent than women,” while conceding that she also liked the way he reacted with her body chemistry.
Of course, scents are entirely subjective and it almost feels like this scent was made specifically to switch scents, depending on the wearer. At $ 120 a bottle for a 2.5-ounce bottle, it’s probably good that it’s shareable, although it might be worth it, since the sampler BriBeatss exclaimed as if she “smelled like a million dollars”.
