Rihanna's new fragrance has been given the thumbs up by animal rights activists at Peta - they love the scent and the fact the R&B beauty has teamed up with a cruelty-free company to create it.

Reb'l Fleur, which will hit store shelves on 25 January (11), was created by Rihanna and the nose experts at Parlux, who have been on PETA's 'good list', for refusing to test products on animals, for years.

PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews is so impressed by the singer's choice, he sent her a big bouquet of flowers to thank her for putting animals first.

He tells WENN, "Rihanna's decision to team up with Parlux is as kind to animals as her music is to your ears. By renouncing animal tests, Parlux is proving that beauty doesn't have to have an ugly side."
