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 had a collection of 11 perfumes with fragrance house Parlux, the first of which was released in 2010. But it was widely rumored that she didn’t wear her own fragrance at the time. 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.
In 2021, Rihanna gave fans the chance to finally smell like her. Her first scent under her Fenty brand, Fenty Eau de Parfum, sold out within hours of launch. You can get all the details on Fenty’s fragrance—like when it’s coming back in stock—here.
Love, Don’t Be Shy
