You’ve probably already heard about the Fenty Perfume (proper name Fenty Eau de Parfum). Will it really make you smell like Rihanna? Well, finding out the notes in the fragrance may clue us in.
There’s no secret that Rihanna smells good. I mean, people she works with constantly compliment her about it; they even tell other people about it! But all their descriptions are quite vague — ‘She smells so good’ or ‘She smells like heaven.’ What does that smell like?
Rihanna’s favorite perfume
Prior to the launch of her Fenty Perfume, Rihanna already dipped her foot into the fragrance world. She released 11 fragrances with Parlux in the past decade, including the popular Reb’l Fleur. But her signature scent, according to her stylist friend, is Kilian’s Love Don’t Be Shy.
The fragrance’s key notes are neroli, orange blossom, and marshmallow. In person, this reportedly smells quite sugary with a hint of florals.
Does the Fenty Eau de Parfum smell the same?
Fenty Perfume Notes
Let’s compare the notes. Rihanna’s upcoming fragrance has these: magnolia, musk, tangerine, blueberry, Bulgarian Rose absolute, geranium, and patchouli.
It seems like the new scent is more floral and musky than Rihanna’s signature. But it also reads as the scent you’d think Rihanna actually smells like — warm, sexy, arresting.
Those who were able to get it before its release on 10 August have nothing but good things to say, so it does seem promising.
