It’s a deal that’s been months in the making, but Rihanna is now officially Hollywood’s newest perfumer with the launch of her debut signature scent, Reb’l Fleur.

“My grandmother in Barbados used to call me her Rebel Flower,” the singer tells PEOPLE of what inspired the fragrance’s name.

And while the name might be the natural choice, deciding on the final mix proved something more of a challenge.

“Over the years, I layered many different scents to get something that was truly my own,” she says.

“But I wanted…something that said ‘Rihanna was here.’ Something delicious and special, a fragrance with subtle hints that linger and leave a sexy memory.”

The end result recalls the star’s Caribbean upbringing with ripe fruits and sumptuous florals, as well as a musky mix of vanilla, patchouli and amber.

Reb’l Fleur will begin rolling into department stores in February, priced at $49 for a 1.7 oz. bottle.
