Shakira is expanding her perfume legacy with her latest addition called “Rock”. This scent was inspired by that overwhelming and amazing feeling that a performer gets when heading onto the stage. Shakira wanted to capture that feeling in a bottle which turned out to be a powerful citrus explosion!
The fragrance has very strong top notes of lemon, green mandarin and bergamot which are very clear when you first sniff the fragrance and spray it on. But after a couple of minutes the fragrance settles and you can start detecting the soft and powdery notes of jasmine. Musk and Amber finish off the fragrance, but I couldn’t detect any musk at all, so if you are like me who is not a fan of musky scents, don’t worry, it’s only present very light in this perfume.
The bottle is very interesting and it’s shaped like an electric guitar! I love me a cool perfume bottle and this one definitely catches my eye. I wasn’t a fan of Shakiras’ previous perfume because the bottle design wasn’t very exciting and from a customer point of view, if it doesn’t catch my eye in the first few seconds I won’t even give it a sniff. This bottle is however a lot of fun and looks great on my perfume stand!
As far as celebrity fragrances go, this is one of the good ones. If you haven’t experienced a Shakira fragrances before, give this particular one a go next time you out shopping. After all her hips don’t lie and neither will this scent 😉
