Rihanna is one amongst the most important pop stars within the world and intrinsically conjointly contains a fragrance line to require advantage of this fame. whereas it's restricted in its choice and scope, Rihanna’s line of fragrances do an excellent job of representing her temperament and conjointly smell excellent.
For this, list I have chosen the highest seven perfumes by Rihanna, and I’ll continue to change and update as needed, when the newer Fenty fragrances are released.
What are the Best Rihanna Perfumes?
Most Famous Perfumes
Reb’L Fleur by Rihanna, 3.4 Ounce, Eau De Parfum Spray– A moderate, feminine scent from Rihanna that works well for all occasions. It’s a clean fragrance that blends sweet and spice.
Yet, it has a dark juiciness, floral notes, and just an overall sexy feel to it. Hibiscus and some tuberose provide the floral aspect to Reb’l. Though, it’s never all that powerful, within the mix.
Reb’l Fleur is the best selling of these perfumes and for good reason, it smells wonderful. The top is made up of fruits, but you get vanilla and coconut-infused creaminess, underneath it all. These two notes, eventually take over the composition during the dry down.
The peach, berries, and plum are delicious up front and then you get enough patchouli to make it interesting. Notes include: red berries, hibiscus, plum, vanilla, peach and coconut water.
Top Summer Season Fragrance
Crush – Crush is a citrus berry blend, with some light floral/woody highlights. This one is ideal for the warmer months, it is not too heavy, and has a sweet profile. But, with moments that are more toward being tart.
Up top, you get the citrus blend. As it moves forward, ylang-ylang and berries become more prominent. In that opening and transition to the next phase, it really has a nice yellow floral and citrus profile…though, that will fade.
Towards the end, you get some fresh woods, paired with the berries and some lingering orange from the opening.
Crush has a unique aroma, that is delicious, and put together well. It isn’t a sugary or the run of the mill celebrity perfume. Crush is an absolutely great value pick for summer.
Best Floral Rihanna Perfume
Kiss- Peony, gardenia, and freesia come together along with a somewhat tart plum note to create Kiss by Rihanna. Up top, the plum really shines along with peony.
However, as you move along, the other floral notes emerge fully. Gardenia is the most noticeable, but you will also pick up on neroli and the freesia.
It is a soft bouquet scent, that never becomes too ‘green’, but keeps a sweet lightness throughout. It is a bit of a floral gourmand with a caramel kind of aroma, but one that doesn’t get heavy and cloying.
Kiss isn’t all that complex, just well blended, and a great deal for the price. The plum and orange blossom note, bring enough fruitiness to keep it from being just another straight floral scent.
Best Bold and Spicy Scent
Rogue By Rihanna Eau de Parfum Spray, 4.2 Ounce– Rogue is a more complex and mature fragrance than the others on the Rihanna line. It is a spicy and outgoing perfume for women that is definitely for the bold.
It is interesting that it shares a few notes with Reb’l Fleur (vanilla, plum, and patchouli), and yet, is such a different scent. The patchouli is a bit heavier, but it is really dominated by a suede note.
Rogue is smooth, fresh, and dries down with a musky powder aroma. The patchouli with the sweeter notes, gives off a bit of a warm baked goods aroma, at times during the wear. Notes include: lemon blossom, cyclamen, plum.
Daily Casual Wear Fragrance
Rihanna Nude Eau de Parfum Spray for Women, 3.4 Ounce– Nude is a great floral/fruity perfume that works well for the spring and summer months of the year. It’s soft and perfect for casual wear.
The fruits have a semi-sweet aroma, with vanilla and orchid, holding them back from becoming overly dominant in the mix. It opens with a clean and somewhat juicy tropical fruit blend with guava leading the way.
I found this one to be quite attractive, I really enjoy the opening act with the blend or guava, orange, and other fruits. Smells similar to some other scents on the market, but this is a nice affordable option.
The orchid is quite noticeable at this stage, as well. The latter stages are more floral, with a bit of musk, to add some depth. Notes include: guava, mandarin orange, pear. My Full Review of Nude
Top Tropical Rihanna Perfume
Rihanna Riri Eau De Parfum Spray for Women, 3.4 Fluid Ounce– RiRi is another tropical fruit fragrance, with passion fruit, playing a major role. However, this one is sweeter with a boozy note of rum, which really helps to set it apart.
Also, it’s not really a summertime tropical fragrance, which makes it more interesting in my eyes.
It isn’t an overbearing rum, but lightly there, adding the blend of sweet and spice. Riri has a sugary sweet disposition, with additional notes of mandarin orange, and particularly vanilla.
Simple overall, but with some interesting additions, to the sweetness which make it smell really nice. The vanilla and rum, give it enough to be a moderate to colder weather sort of perfume. The passion fruit brings a fantastic sweetness and makes Riri a joy to wear.
Rihanna’s Luxury Fragrance
Fenty EDP by Fenty – Fenty Eau de Parfum is currently a difficult one to get a hold of. As of posting, it’s sold out everywhere except eBay, it seems. Hopefully, that changes because this is a worthwhile perfume to try.
It starts with a beautiful citrus and blueberry top. Blueberry is all to underutilized in fragrances, but it is great here. The main star is going to be the rose note. It’s soft, musky, with hints of vanilla floating around at times.
Sweet and warm without the heavy or cloying feeling that can come with many scents like this. The geranium and magnolia play well off of the rose note.
Overall, Fenty EDP is enjoyable and pretty. I will say, that it is probably best to get hold of a decanted sample on eBay or some other source, and test it out for yourself.
The limited supply has pushed prices to insane levels, beyond what this should be priced at, even if it’s a nice perfume.
