Aaliyah’s First Fragrance to Be Released
Aaliyah’s first official fragrance is set to be released this fall. Her brother, Rashad Haughton, and mother, Diane Haughton, have teamed up with Xyrena to create the late singer’s first official scent and it’ll be one both men and women can enjoy.
Aaliyah by Xyrena is a unisex fragrance with base notes of vanilla, sandalwood, amber and jasmine. There are also middle notes of black pepper, violet and leather and top notes of mint, lavender and mandarin. The company states that the scent was inspired by the fragrances Aaliyah wore, is tinted in her favorite color (black) and that it “leans masculine, as Aaliyah favored traditional men’s scents in line with her signature, sexy tomboy image.”
The Aaliyah fragrance will retail for $64 and will ship in mid-October. Five percent of proceeds from the fragrance sales will go toward the Aaliyah Memorial Fund.
