Aaliyah’s Family Intent On Ruining Her Legacy With New Perfume
If you've ever wanted to know what kind of perfume the late Aaliyah might have once been interested in dabbing on her pressure points, never fear: There's an Aaliyah perfume ready for pre-order, and it's (probably) exactly what she would've wanted!
Not content with letting Aaliyah's legacy go untouched for too long, the late singer's mother and brother paired with the esteemed cosmetics company Xyrena (which we’d definitely heard of before today), to create a perfume inspired by Aaliyah.
The official description for the fragrance (via Xyrena’s official website) says:
Aaliyah™ by Xyrena is the first and only official fragrance tribute to the Princess of R&B. Developed in close collaboration with Diane & Rashad Haughton (the late singer and actress’s mother and brother), Xyrena crafted a true aromatic tribute inspired by actual fragrances Aaliyah wore.Aaliyah by Xyrena is unisex but leans masculine, as Aaliyah favored traditional men’s scents in line with her signature, sexy tomboy image. The formula is also a hue of black which was Aaliyah’s favorite color. Aaliyah by Xyrena has base notes of vanilla, sandalwood, amber, and jasmine; middle notes of black pepper, violet and leather; with top notes of mint, lavender and mandarin.
The site states that 5% of the sales from the perfume will go toward The Aaliyah Memorial Fund, so there's at least one positive aspect to the project.
