Rihanna’s Nude Perfume Meant To Recall “Glistening” Skin

Rihanna is finally giving a scant bit of insight into the much-debated name, ad, and packaging of her third fragrance.

After Rihanna tweeted the first photo from the new campaign for her latest fragrance Nude, it raised the question that comes up every so often about what “nude” means, exactly, in terms of a shade of commercial fashion and beauty items. Why does nude, by definition, match a white person’s skin? In this Nude fragrance ad and packaging, the nude color is more akin to a white person’s skin than person of color’s.

Rihanna doesn’t seem likely to quiet this debate with her latest statements about the scent. According to WWD, the fragrance is “is meant to bring to mind thoughts of ‘glistening’ skin.” So, whose skin?

If you want the fragrance, you can buy it at Macy’s this Black Friday, if you really want to put yourself through Black Friday.
