Aaliyah’s Tribute Fragrance Embodies Beauty and Mystery

Aaliyah may be gone but her musical legacy continues to live on. Now her spirit has a scent. The late singer’s mother and brother, Diane and Rashad Haughton, have teamed up with perfume maker Xyrena to create an Aaliyah tribute fragrance.
According to a press release, the unisex fragrance leans masculine because Aaliyah loved traditional men’s scents but is sexy enough for women as it features various notes of vanilla, sandalwood, mint, lavender, mandarin and other scents.
“It has been wonderful working with Xyrena to create an incredible fragrance that embodies the beauty, mystery, and creativity that my sister infused into every aspect of her life,” said Rashad Haughton.
“I grew up with Aaliyah’s music,” added Killian Wells, Xyrena’s CEO. “As a huge fan, this is a very personal release for me and my company. We set out to create a fragrance to be cherished by Aaliyah’s fans and also introduce her to a new generation.”
The Aaliyah by Xyrena perfume is available for pre-order starting today (Sept. 15) for $64 at Xyrena.com. The fragrance will arrive in stores in mid-October.
In addition, Xyrena will donate five percent from the entire sales of the perfume to the Aaliyah Memorial Fund.
