Rise and shine
Bergamot. Ok, a staple of perfumery since forever, for good reason. The opening is bright, juicy and sunny; not too sweet for me, and basil cuts the juiciness just so it becomes a fresh herbal smoothie on the veranda in the morning sun. I am not a fan of how the apricot in the opening seems to interact with freesia (I think?), but the transition from the opening to the heart is smooth and creamy, just a tad soapy and powdery. I have no idea what a ”gold symphony orchid” is supposed to smell like, but overall the powdery floral accord is well done, if a bit generic. I am not that familiar with Beyoncé’s previous releases, except that I remember liking Pulse NYC, so I will refrain from making comparisons. The drydown is sober and mature: I get something woodsy-vetivery and musky after the florals start to subside. Yes. good.

To put it simply, Rise smells good. Not the most adventurous of perfumes, either in concept or content, but a solid performance from a juice that is already available for pocket change from online discounters, weeks after its launch (it’s how I got mine to test). As fruity florals and celebrity frags go, it’s as good a pick as any other, maybe even better than most; it’s great fun, sweet and carefree, but also grown up. My only real complaint is the cap, which is both fugly and inconvenient. I wish I could just replace it with something less tacky, preferably made of metal.

Even if nobody expects a celebrity fragrance to carve niches in perfumery, I do kind of wonder about Rise. An artist with Beyoncé’s star power could surely have taken more of a risk with the perfume and gone for something more exciting and potentially polarizing. As it is, Rise plays it safe and stays firmly in well-charted olfactory territory.

Shake loose!
This is a very interesting perfume. Beyoncé's perfumes are usually very heavy and this is one of them but very mature. A lot of people say that smells like coffee, I would have to agree with them, but it is really powdery. It opens up with a very sweet but yet citrusy and also very powdery, also you get kind of like a basil tea in it. Then we go to the heart. The orchid makes it more woodier almost but, also yet sweet. We go to the base, which has some vetiver in it. And that vetiver dominates the whole base. It is almost like a men's cologne, but also has a feminine quality to it. A very sexy sent. Great job Beyonce! Keep on making great fragrances! ????
