Beyoncé: Rise Review + Giveaway

Beyonce launches her new perfume Rise in February of 2014. The concept that lies behind the creation of this fragrance was inspired by Beyonce’s on-stage personal, as well as by “female empowerment and finding the inner strength that makes women so beautiful".  The fragrance is supposedly more intimate and more natural than the previous ones, inspired by the works of singer's favorite poet Maya Angelou.

RRP: $59

Like all of Beyoncé past perfumes, this too is based around her favourite flower, the orchid, Beyoncé RISE has incorporated a gold symphony orchid. Its unique shape resembles a musical instrument, the perfect symbol for Beyoncé and features a rich, intoxicating floral scent.

RISE comes in a tall, elegant, classy glass bottle. It features a gold spike crown lid, which is very Queen B of her. The perfume itself is champagne / goldy in the bottle. Beyoncé believes all women’s power comes from within and when she connects with her very essence, she reveals her true individuality, strength and her inner beauty and this fragrance encourages all women to be all that they can be.

Before receiving this goodie in the mail, my sisters and I were test smelling it in our local Priceline. I sprayed this on my skin, the scent was quite familiar but I couldn't pin point it at the time. Until I was trying more perfumes at work and I came across Yves Saint Laurent's perfume called Manifesto, It was almost an exact dupe. I was quite surprised.

Rise has notes of apricot, Italian bergamot and iced basil sorbet. The main note of the perfume is  "Golden Symphony" orchid mixed with freesia and Sambac jasmine flowers.  Base notes are autumn woods, cashmere, musk and vetiver.

Rise has a true strong scent, which is quite over powering at first. So a little can go a long way. The main notes that you can smell are musk and wood, which isn't my personal favourite as I'm more for a fruity / floral scent. However if you prefer woody and musky scents, this is totally for you. It gives you a warm feeling, so definitely perfect for the colder months. Its truly gorgeous. It's very Lady like. The perfume really does justice to its name.
