‘Seeing you and the girls smile makes my heart smile. You’re the toughest mama I know. Seeing you put one foot forward each day is admirable. It ain’t easy, but if I know one thing, Mamba Queen’s capable of it all. Love you V,’ she wrote in an Instagram post.
The inseparable duo frequently spend time with each other’s children, Vanessa even sharing a TikTok of Ciara and her eldest daughter Natalia, 17, on social media to celebrate ‘C’s’ 35th birthday.
Recently Ciara and her Seattle Seahawks husband announced they were coming out with a fragrance that represented their passion for each other.
Passion project: ‘When we first met, we were so passionate about each other and we wanted to translate that into something,’ Ciara said of the fragrance duo
R&C: Just in time for the holidays the fragrance bundle features one masculine and one feminine scent as they used it as an opportunity to convey their passion for each other
R&C The Fragrance Duo has been a long time dream project as Ciara told People, ‘This is a dream come true for the both of us. I’ve been dreaming of creating my own fragrance for years and the chance to introduce our first fragrance together was truly special and meaningful.’
Calling the process a ‘special gift’ she continued, ‘When we first met, we were so passionate about each other and we wanted to translate that into something. We always in the back of our minds wanted to do a fragrance together.’
With one feminine scent and one masculine scent, the pair would ‘give each other challenges,’ wearing the ‘fragrances at different times of the day on different days’ to see if they both had ‘the same reaction’ to the scents they loved.
