Please note that for anyone who signed the #AaliyahForMAC petition, Rashad has made it very clear that everyone should purchase this fragrance, along with the Official Aaliyah Merchandise courtesy of UrbanOutfitters (Which you can check out from my previous posts!). This is the only way we can help the MAC makeup campaign come to fruition. So if you would like this to happen, please help by showing your love and support! Remember that this is all for a good cause, so let’s make Babygirl proud! :o) One love!

A quote from the Xyrena site themselves who describes the scent as...

"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. 

5% of all sales from this release will be donated to The Aaliyah Memorial Fund."

I'm really happy that they are using a mixture of actual scents which Aaliyah wore herself. Some people may think it's another gimmick, but it's definitely far from that, since both Diane and Rashad have taken a lot into consideration into preserving Aaliyah's legacy, and rightly so! I've been waiting for something like this for years, so the fact that it is actually happening, truly warms my heart. Thank you Diane and Rashad for taking the time and effort into making all these ventures possible. I know Aaliyah would be very proud. :o) If that's not all...check out the dope video promo for the fragrance below, to give you a better feel of what it's all about! Enjoy! ;)
