Update: The wait is over — you can finally smell like Rihanna, thanks to her new perfume. As of today, Fenty Eau de Parfum ($120) has officially launched on the brand's website. According to a press release from Fenty Beauty, it captures the "complex, vibrant, and sensual essence of its creator."
Inspired by the star's favorite places — Bridgetown, Barbados; Grasse, France; New York City; Paris; Los Angeles — the luxury fragrance has notes of magnolia, musk, tangerine, blueberry, and Bulgarian rose absolute. "That's the thing I love the most: it's an experience, it's a memory, encapsulated into a fragrance. One smell, you'll never forget it," Rihanna said in the release.
Just be forewarned: given how synonymous Rihanna's name has become with "delicious smelling," you can bet this will sell out. Act fast.
Original post: Lil Nas X once said Rihanna "smells like heaven," and if that isn't a ringing endorsement for her future fragrance, we don't know what is. As one dedicated Twitter user pointed out two years ago, everyone is simply obsessed with how the multihyphenate smells. Perhaps that's what fueled her to launch the recently announced Fenty Parfum, or maybe she's secretly been testing it out for all these years. With Rihanna, we'll never know.
On July 27, Fenty Beauty's Instagram shared a cryptic video hinting at a fragrance debut, only describing it as "sensual, confident yet sexy" — which, to be honest, are all words we would use to describe Rihanna herself. While the fact that it's "coming soon" is the only information we have thus far, we can't wait to find out what the star really smells like, or at least what she deems to be a great scent.
Considering Rihanna's previous go-to perfume was Kilian's Love, Don't Be Shy, a fragrance with a hefty $240 price tag, and Fenty Beauty offers a slightly more affordable price point, we're ready to shop Fenty Parfum as soon as she'll allow. If that glimpse at the chic packaging was any indication, we imagine it'll be worth the purchase.
