Apparently, Every Celebrity Is Obsessed With How ‘Heavenly’ Rihanna Smells

A viral Twitter thread has the world asking, why does Rihanna smell SO DAMN GOOD? 

As the thread shows, Rihanna has been gifting people with the presence of her scent for years. Compiled by @thickannawhore, the thread features an astonishing array of celebrities gushing over just how good Rihanna smells. Apparently, it’s really a thing. 

There’s Lil Nas X saying Rihanna “smells like heaven” when asked what his favorite smell is. 

Cardi B can’t help but burst out, “she smell good!” 

Jennifer Lawrence rhapsodizes over how Rihanna “smelled really good.” 

Nigella Lawson stops everything to announce that Rihanna “smells lovely.” 

Nick Jonas once revealed to The Sun, “She smells amazing, that is one thing I can tell you. Everyone says it but I have actually smelt her now and it’s amazing.” 

In 2016, Rihanna’s friend @StylishGent committed a major faux pas by revealing what perfume the singer and designer favors wearing. By Kilian, Love, Don’t Be Shy was released in 2007 and designed by perfumer Calice Asancheyev-Becker.

According to, the perfume is unisex and includes fragrance notes of bergamot, pink pepper, coriander, neroli, Sambac jasmie, honeysuckle, orange flower, Bulgarian rose, iris butter, civet, caramelized sugar, vanilla, cistus labdanum, and white musk.

1.7 ounce bottle of Love, Don’t Be Shy retails for about $295.00. 

However, it’s not known if Rihanna still wears this perfume. 

Rihanna also designs her own scents. She has a collection of 11 perfumes with the fragrance house Parlux, but according to Harpers Bazaar, it’s rumored she doesn’t wear her own brand. Her latest perfume was Reb’l Fleur Love Always, which came out in 2018 — so she is due to release another one soon.
