Aaliyah remembered through official fragrance

Late singer Aaliyah’s essence will be captured in a fragrance for fans to enjoy.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - The family of late songstress Aaliyah have created a perfume in honour of her memory.

The Try Again star passed away in a plane crash at the age of 22 in 2001, at the height of her career.

Aaliyah’s death devastated millions of fans worldwide, but fortunately listeners will be able to connect with her memory via a forthcoming beauty product.

Aaliyah's mother and brother, Diane and Rashad Haughton, have teamed up with bosses at perfume company Xyrena to release the first official fragrance.

"It has been wonderful working with Xyrena to create an incredible fragrance that embodies the beauty, mystery, and creativity that my sister infused into every aspect of her life,” Rashad wrote in a press release obtained by WENN.

The fragrance is aptly dubbed Aaliyah and is now available for pre-order. Five per cent of all sales from the product will be donated to The Aaliyah Memorial Fund.

The R&B songstress isn’t the only late superstar to have been reborn via beauty products recently.

Latin songstress Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, who recorded hits like Bidi Bidi Bom Bom and Como la flor before she passed, will also be memorialized through a line of makeup created by MAC Cosmetics.

“Like the legend herself, Selena Quintanilla’s fans are an inspiration to us all for their love and enthusiasm. It’s happening! We are excited to announce the M•A•C Selena Quintanilla collection, available in 2016. @SelenaQOfficial #MACSelena,” the brand wrote on their Instagram account this summer.

Selena, who was shot and killed by the president of her fan club in 1995, always dreamed of launching a makeup line, according to her sister Suzette.
