FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Parlux Fragrances, Inc. (Nasdaq:PARL) announced today that Rihanna, Parlux Fragrances, Inc. and Droga5 have released an interactive video website ( rihannareblfleur.com ), which allows fans to explore both sides of the internationally renowned Grammy award-winning superstar's personality – Reb'l and Fleur - on their own terms.

As the centerpiece of Parlux's marketing campaign for Reb'l Fleur, Rihanna's new fragrance, the website is a technological first: it's entirely user-controlled and features a "palindromic" film and audio track that can be played at full-screen forwards, backwards, slow or at full speed – an entirely new way to explore online video.

Using simple movements of a computer mouse, fans can explore two different, abstract stories, depending on which direction they choose to play: in one direction Rihanna is pursuing a mysterious man; in the other, she is breaking free from him.

Collaborating with Droga5, music video director Dave Meyers and choreographer Tina Landon choreographed each artist and camera movement to create a seamless story in each direction.

Once fans experience Rihanna's duality, they can express their own personality via social media, declaring to Facebook or Twitter whether they are a Reb'l or a Fleur, with unique URLs ( goodfeelssobad.com and badfeelssogood.com ) driving friends to the site for their own experience.

Fred Purches, Chairman and CEO of Parlux Fragrances, Inc. remarks: "Without a doubt, Rihanna is a unique and dynamic contemporary personality in today's popular music scene. She is an icon respected and recognized for her strength as well as her femininity. Reb'l Fleur expresses the dichotomy of her modern image. The fragrance is playful and sexy yet bold and luxurious. Truly Reb'l Fleur is as timeless in its sensuality as it is youthful in its timely appeal."

It holds licenses or sublicenses to manufacture and distribute the designer fragrance brands of Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson, Nicole Miller, Josie Natori, Queen Latifah, Marc Ecko, Rihanna, Kanye West, Vince Camuto and Fred Hayman Beverly Hills, as well as Paris Hilton sunglasses.
