In news that surprises absolutely no one, Rihanna apparently smells like heaven. She smells so delicious, in fact, that every celebrity feels the need to talk about it. So what does the makeup, music, and fashion mogul smell like, exactly? Twitter user @thickannawhore compiled a thread of videos showing celebrities gushing about Rihanna's scent.
In the first clip, Lil Nas X is asked to describe his favorite smell, and he replies Rihanna.
The second clip shows Cardi B meeting Rihanna at this year's BET Awards. Smiling from ear-to-ear, Cardi B screams out "she smell good!" about—who else?—Rihanna.
The third clip is from a video by Youtube sensation Nikkie Tutorials. Describing hugging Rihanna at a Fenty Beauty event, Nikkie says "She smells like heaven."
Then there's this piece of evidence from Ryan Seacrest:
Jennifer Lawrence recalled meeting Rihanna during her Hunger Games press tour: "She was so so beautiful and had really, really soft skin and like smelled really good."
In an old clip from the Graham Norton show, Rihanna shares a couch with Marilyn Manson and Nigella Lawson. Lawson told Rihanna that she smells good, then had Norton sniff her as well to confirm.
There were a few other hilarious clips in the thread, so be sure to click above to scroll through them all. The one question the thread didn't answer, however, is what exactly the Fenty designer smells like? Is it perfume?
Rihanna has a collection of 11 perfumes with fragrance house Parlux, the first of which was released in 2010. She hasn't released a new scent since last year—so a Fenty scent might be in the works. But it's long been rumored that Rihanna didn't wear her own brand of perfume day-to-day, which was seemingly confirmed in an Instagram clip from 2016.
As first reported by Stylecaster, Rihanna's friend @StylishGent filmed a video with Rihanna back in 2016 in which he spills that she's wearing By Kilian Love, Don't Be Shy. Rihanna is seen in the background of the video looking totally annoyed that he's telling the world her signature scent.
By Kilian Love, Don't Be Shy was released in 2007. It's a sweet gourmand with unmistakable notes of marshmallow, vanilla, and caramel. The top and mid notes are citrusy and white florals, but the base notes are sugary gourmands—so by the time people are smelling Rihanna in a hug, she probably smells like the world's greatest dessert. We now fully understand the frenzy.
