In 1789, Benjamin Franklin said that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. Well, I’d like to add a third, less morbid truth to the list: the fact that Rihanna smells good. Not only does she just give off a certain aura, but a slew of other celebs, like Lil Nas X and Cardi B, have waxed poetic about how good Rihanna smells.
Rihanna allegedly smells so good that her first luxury fragrance, Fenty Eau de Parfum, is one of the only celebrity perfumes that we keep on rotation. The problem is, it’s nearly always sold out, since it was initially launched as a limited edition fragrance and typically sells out within hours of each restock. Now, however, the brand has decided to make Fenty Eau de Parfum a mainstay in the Fenty Beauty family, which means that you now always have access to a fragrance crafted by Rihanna herself.
Fenty Eau de Parfum is a warm floral with key notes like magnolia, musk, tangerine and Bulgarian rose. One spritz and you’re instantly transported to a secret garden in full bloom. If the scent isn’t enough to convince you, take in that the bottle was designed to perfectly fit into Rihanna’s hand, and it’s her favorite color. It’s kind of like having a piece of Rihanna with you at all times (but not in a creepy way, I promise).
If you’re looking for another, slightly more sweet option, Rihanna is also famously known to wear Kilian’s Love, Don’t Be Shy perfume. This delicate scent is a blend of orange blossom, vanilla absolute, and marshmallow, all suspended in a rich amber base. Both of these fragrances are best-worn during occasions when you want people to ask why you smell so good.
