Gone are the days when the most popular celebrity perfume was a sugar-laden relic that ends up gathering dust thanks to the incessant headaches it brought on. These days celebrity fragrances are much more nuanced and easy to wear, with some of the best perfumes even being created in partnership with well-renowned fragrance experts.

And according to Fragrance Direct (opens in new tab), there's one perfume in particular that has garnered much adoration among both beauty and pop music fans. Ariana Grande's Cloud has been crowned the most popular celebrity perfume after racking up a whopping 100,000 searches from fans wanting to snap up the juicy number.

It seems Ari can do no wrong—whether it’s her R.E.M beauty line or her perfumes, of which she now has seven successful scents, the most recent being God Is A Woman.

Cloud however seems to be the fan-favorite, with its blend of lavender, pear, crème de coconut, praline and vanilla orchid. Ideal for those who love fruity and floral smells.

The Positions singer isn’t the only celeb with a booming fragrance buis however, Billie Eilish is in close second—thanks to her debut Eilish perfume.

This fragrance not only smells good but looks like a piece of art. The bottle is a gold bust of Billie herself and will make any surface in your home look expensive. Billie’s perfume has received over 60,000 searches and features spicy, woody notes, blended with vanilla and cocoa—Yum!
