Product Review: Rise by Beyoncé Eau De Parfum

Rise by Beyoncé.

I love perfumes and the ability they have to make an outfit or look feel complete. I often feel unfinished when I forget to put on perfume before I head out for the day. So needless to say that when I was offered the opportunity to try Beyoncé's new fragrance 'Rise', I jumped at the chance. 

Alright! Now for a little about the perfume and my thoughts!

Beyoncé believes a woman’s power comes from within and when a woman connects with her very essence, she revels in her individuality, her strength, and her beauty.
To honour this elevated and empowering attitude, Beyoncé was inspired to create her newest scent, RISE.

Fragrance composition:

Top notes: Italian Bergamot, Golden Apricot, Iced Basil Sorbet.
Middle notes: Gold Symphony Orchid, Freesia Blossom, Natural Jasmine Sambac.
Base notes: Autumn Woods Accord, Cashmere Musk, Vetiver Extract.

My thoughts:
I adore the lid, but I find something about the bottle to be a little cheap looking. I'm not sure if it is the label or the colour of the perfume. Is it just me? Or is that champagne coloured perfume a little bit dated?

My Beyonce Rise experience:
  • It wears well. The fragrance lasts for hours on end.
  • The fragrance is quite intense, for that reason apply sparingly. You can always spray more on later but unless you're willing to shower it's hard to take it away.

Beyoncé Rise is extremely woody and musky on me. Not a personal favourite I must admit. I prefer lighter floral and fruitier scents. If you are in my boat, this fragrance probably isn't for you. However, if you prefer heavy woody and musky scents, this may be right up your alley.

Note: I always recommend spraying a sample of perfume on that you are thinking about buying to see how it smells on you. Believe it or not, fragrances tend to smell different on different people; as they react with the oils in your skin.

Beyonce Rise is available in two sizes 50ml ($49 AUD) and 100ml ($69 AUD). Grab yours now from Myer, Priceline, and other selected outlets.

Have you tried this or any other Beyoncé fragrances?
