Rihanna will name her second fragrance Rebelle.

The singer launched her first perfume Reb'l Fleur earlier this year and asked her fans to vote on the name of her new fragrance in a poll on her website in which 68 per cent chose Rebelle.

The new scent - which has been "built off the sexy back of Reb'l Fleur" - will go on sale in December.

Rebelle will be packaged in a variation of the original bottle.

Fred Purches, chairman and chief executive officer of Parlux Fragrances Inc - which has been working on the perfumes with Rihanna - said the company is also planning on eventually launching a men's scent with the singer.

Rihanna has previously revealed Reb'l Fleur was a reference to a nickname her grandmother gave her when she was growing up in Barbados, and she has also had it tattooed on her.

The 'We Found Love' hitmaker has long been known to mix different existing perfumes to create her own signature scent and said she wanted her own perfume to reflect the her Roots in Barbados as well as her life in New York and Los Angeles.

She has described her first perfume as "like high heels with a short, flirty dress."
