Aaliyah by Xyrena

14 years after her death, Aaliyah returns with a new fragrance.

The late singer's estate teams up with Xyrena for the development of an official scent.

"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," Aalaiyah's brother Rashad Haughton said in a press release.

"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 unisex fragrance leans masculine, a nod to Aaliyah's favored men's scents and sexy tomboy image. The formula is a hue of black, Aaliyah's favorite color, while containing base notes of vanilla, sandalwood, amber, and jasmine; middle notes of black pepper, violet and leather; with top notes of mint, lavender, and mandarin.

The Aaliyah by Xyrena is available now for pre-order for $64 USD, with shipments beginning in mid-October.
