Riri by Rihanna* is her latest fragrance following on from her past launches "Rogue and Nude". Unlike her previous perfumes, which were strong and heavy scented - this one is a lot lighter with top notes of cassis, mandarin, passion fruit and rum.
As someone who openly admits to the only perfume I've ever bought being the £3.99 "Suddenly" from Lidl, it's been a nice change wearing one that's more expensive (£40) but also one that has a lot more staying power!
The bottle is huge, it's 100ml, so despite the pricier £40 you are actually getting a lot for your money. Coupled with the staying power it's quite the bargain. I love using this for work, I find it quick awakening using a lighter perfume first thing in the morning. It's been a welcomed change to the heavier musky scent of Suddenly.
As we enter the warmer weather I think this is a great summer fragrance, especially for work. It's uplifting and I really enjoy using it first thing in the morning. The box is much prettier than the bottle I think, which is a shame because I rarely keep things in boxes. I feel that the text is too distracting from the shape and colour of the bottle and something smaller would have just added to the expensive feel of the scent.
