In more Rihanna news, the pop starlet is getting the thumbs from animal rights company PETA for teaming with a cruelty-free brand to create her new Reb’l Fleur perfume. The scent, which is set to hit stores on January 25, is a partnership between Rihanna and Parlux.

“Rihanna’s decision to team up with Parlux is as kind to animals as her music is to your ears,” PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews tells WENN. “By renouncing animal tests, Parlux is proving that beauty doesn’t have to have an ugly side.”

Having scents of ripe fruits and sumptuous florals, as well as a musky mix of vanilla, patchouli and amber, Reb’l Fleur is described as “daring, sexy and truly memorable.”
