In a poll on the official website for Rihanna's first fragrance Reb'l Fleur, Rihanna asked fans to state whether they were a Rebelle or a Fleur. After an overwhelming 68% of Rihanna's fans voted Rebelle, the singer decided to embark on the release of her second fragrance, Rebelle, having achieved great success with her debut fragrance, Reb'l Fleur.[1]


Rihanna described the fragrance, as having a "feminine romantic element," while maintaining a "defiant quality." She added, "my new fragrance is about taking control but still being a lady." [4] The top notes of the fragrance include; plum, strawberry and ginger, the middle notes include orchid, cacao and heliotrope, and the base notes include musk, patchouli, amber and coffee. The fragrance is packaged in a flacon shape, created of red and gold surfaces, similar to that of Rihanna's previous fragrance.[5]
