Mega pop star Rihanna launched her first ever men's fragrance called Rogue Man cologne at the Lenox Mall Macy's in the tony Buckhead area of Atlanta on Saturday.
Over 3,000 screaming fans assembled to see the Bajan singer but only 500 of them got the chance to meet her up close and personal. Rihanna posed with many of the fans who purchased bottles of her cologne. The singer paused to speak with Dennis Byron of HipHopEnquier.com about her decision to launch her newest brand.
"Rogue Man is just a dynamite fragrance," she said. "It's really sexy but really fresh and that's what I wanted; I wanted the combination of both."
She continued: "But I have always wanted to create a male fragrance even before I dived in to making female fragrances. I wanted to do this first. Now years later, we've been working on this fragrance for a few years, and to see it come to life is really special."
Rihanna said the cologne is the perfect gift for the holidays.
"Fragrance is always a great gift for the holidays," she said. "And now the men get to get something special, the ladies get to get their boyfriends something their dads something, their brothers, their friends. I'm really excited!"
Since Lenox is only mere steps from my front door I ambled over there with the intentions of asking Rihanna to sign a few magazine covers and CDs for me and my readers. Why would I expect her not to honor my request? I mean, at one time Sandrarose.com was the only blog that showed her love and didn't call her "pon de forehead" like other bloggers. When we were on good terms she asked me to go out on tour with her alone -- not with 300 other bloggers packed into a chartered plane.
Unfortunately, Rihanna's crazed fans had other ideas and I was forced to abort my mission and flee the store.
