Shakira has said ”My feeling is that personal care and beauty should be effortless and accessible for everyone,” adding “When you give someone a fragrance, you’re giving them something of yourself. It’s a gift of your essence.” From her lyrics, hips, and charitable actions, Shakira has a lot to give including the launch of a new clip featuring both of her fragrances S by Shakira and S by Shakira Eau Florale. The clip features a multitude of beauty shots of the beautiful latin crooner along with both of her fragrances. Check out the clip below and then keep reading for details of the latest seductive scents to hit the market.In describing the perfume making process, Shakira has been able to take her passion of music and translate it into a strong ability to combine the perfect notes to make unique scents. Shakira states “Just like a song, the perfume is composed of various, individual notes which make harmony.“
Shakira latest fragrance is a reinterpretation of her original fragrance showing off a more feminine and flirty floral side of the latin singer. ”I wanted to find a way to express the feeling of pure happiness through the medium of fragrance”, said Shakira. While notes of jasmine, heliotrope, bergamot and cassis provide floral freshness; notes of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries combined with fresh vanilla and musk create a flirty air of happiness lightly whipped with creamy sensuality. In comparison to the original scent, S by Shakira Eau Florale blends a fine line between oriental and flower, lightly flirting between the two classifications. Overall, while the original S by Shakira reminds me of one of Shakira’s more uptempo beats, S by Shakira Eau Florale speaks to one of her softer ballads boasting sweet melodies. I personally like this scent a lot better because while I do consider myself more of a bold flavor, I prefer to wear softer scents to sort of contrast my overall essence. Just like fashion and makeup; fragrances have an ability to alter your mood and show a bit of depth to your character.
Originally released in 2010, the first S by Shakira fragrance has been well received by the public. Shakira has once described the fan-base for this scent by saying; “The type of women who feel a connection with this fragrance would be independent and strong, but also a woman with a great capacity to love and a strong sense of who they are. It’s for a woman who believes in herself.” The scent can be described as rich, bold, and spicy which are also words synonymous with describing Shakira. While the scent is best classified in the oriental category it features notes of jasmine, sandalwood, vanilla, amber, and resins.
