Beyonce-Rise-Fragrance-Beauty-Glamazons-blog It looks like Beyoncé is the gift that keeps on giving this year. Just a week since the release of her surprise album, King Bey is ready to release her next project into the wild — a new fragrance!

Rise, by Beyoncé, hits stores this Feburary The fragrance was inspired by her favorite Maya Angelou poem (presumably, “Still I Rise”).

“There’s a strong sense of ‘overcoming adversity and rising above it all,'” Marsha Brooks, vice president of global marketing for Cotytold WWD. 

“The fragrance concept is a about female empowerment [sic] and finding the inner strength that makes women so beautiful.” 

The perfume’s main note is gold symphony orchid, known as ‘the queen of orchids’, accentuated by notes of golden apricot, jasmine, freesia, Italian bergamot, and “iced basil sorbet.” Rounding out the scent, there are other more masculine notes, such as autumn woods, cashmere, musk, and vetiver extract.

We can’t wait to try it on!
