The newest launch from the icon has got people talking. Sadly, it's not music, one day we will get over that—we promise—but we will take what we can get. 

Ever caught yourself wondering what perfume Rihanna wears? The singer-turned-entrepreneur may have conquered the skincare and make-up world, but it turns out her signature scent is by another brand entirely.  The star, has recently added a Fenty Perfume—which unsurprisingly sold-out as soon as it hit the digital shelves—to her roster of beauty brands. 

So if you want to smell like Rihanna—yes, we're aware how weird that sounds, and we're okay with it—you have two options. You can keep your eyes glued to the Fenty site for a re-stock or you can buy her favorite perfume

According to Harper’s Bazaar, her signature scent was first revealed by a friend (@StylishGent) who spilled the beans in an Instagram video back in 2016. We bet she was thrilled about that one...



The scent in question now comes in an ‘Extreme’ version, for a more intense fragrance experience. But can you guess which perfume holds the accolade of RiRi's signature scent?

What perfume does Rihanna wear? 

The scent in question is none other than Kilian Love, Don't Be Shy, a warming, sweet fragrance with notes of neroli, orange blossom and marshmallow, the perfect combination for Rihanna’s favorite perfume. 

Fans of the original scent will be interested to learn that the brand recently launched an intense version of the iconic fragrance – which is even richer and more luxurious.

The downside of wanting to smell like Rihanna is that it will set you back a couple of hundred dollars—even if you don’t opt for the Extreme edition. But hey, now's as good a time as any to save up for it, right?
