10 Best Rihanna Perfumes

Glamorous, sexy and confident, the best Rihanna perfumes leave an incredible lasting impression. Here are 10 provocative Rihanna fragrances for your consideration.

1. Rihanna Reb’l Fleur Eau de Parfum

Rihanna Reb'l Fleur Eau de Parfum

Review

Reb’l Fleur Eau de Parfum by Rihanna is a sexy-sweet fruity feminine scent that just gets better and better as it dries. Launched in 2010, this frost fragrance from the star remains a firm favourite among fans.

This fragrance opens with a gourmand trio of soft peach, sweet plum and red berries that are good enough to eat. A heart of sweet sensual coconut water soon becomes the ‘star of the show’, supported by floral hints of violet, tuberose and hibiscus. 

After 20 minutes, vanilla becomes almost as prominent as the coconut, creating a pleasing sweetness tempered by earthy patchouli, light musk and a touch of amber. Settles to a gorgeous coconut/vanilla scent with fruits and exotic earthy musk.

Although packed with sweetness and fruits, I would say this is an any-season evening fragrance. The patchouli and musk bring something a little darker and more daring—just the scent for a boost of confidence when spending a night out with the girls. 

This fragrance’s longevity is a very decent 5+ hours with good sillage and projection that linger on the skin for hours. This fragrance gets more mysterious as the hours progress, thanks to the almost dirty patchouli.

The clear glass bottle resembles an upside-down high-heel with waving black decor and a matching black cap. It looks very chic and feminine.

Overall, Reb’l Fleur is a quality blend of sweet fruits, vanilla and tropical coconut with a sensual darker side. A fragrance for night owls and seductive party girls.

2. Rihanna Reb’l Fleur Love Always Eau de Parfum

Rihanna Reb'l Fleur Love Always Eau de Parfum

Review

Reb’l Fleur Love Always Eau de Parfum is a darker and richer version of the original Reb’l Fleur fragrance and was released in 2018. This scent shares much of the same DNA as the original but intensifies the provocative plum note to devastating effect. 

The opening of this scent is a tantalisingly deep and playful plum note with light berries and peach. Just like the original scent, sweet coconut in the heart soon takes centre stage, with floral touches of tuberose and other flowers to add balance.

Upon dry-down, sweet vanilla is soon joined by intoxicating patchouli and warm amber to provide a glamorous feel. Dries to a vanilla/coconut combo with attention-grabbing plum and seductive patchouli. Wow!

Like the original, Reb’l Fleur Love Always is an any-season scent that makes an excellent evening wear choice. I felt its quite dressy, so one to get dressed up and ready to impress. Think nights out with friends, bars, fancy dining, theatre, romantic evening strolls. 

I managed to get 5+ hours of performance from this fragrance before it settled into a skin scent. Sillage and projection were very noticeable for the first 3-4 hours, especially the plum and vanilla. The cheeky tuberose gives an almost CH Good Girl vibe at times when it joins the vanilla.

The presentation is true noir as the original Reb’l Fleur bottle looks like it’s taken a trip to ‘the upside-down’ world of ‘Stranger Things’. It’s dark, mysterious and cool looking.

Overall, Reb’l Fleur Love Always is a smooth operator. It’s feminine and classy yet possesses an undercurrent of no-nonsense ‘bad girl’—just the fragrance you need for a boost of inner bravado.

3. Rihanna Rebelle Eau de Parfum

Rihanna Rebelle Eau de Parfum

Review

Rebelle Eau de Parfum by Rihanna is a luxurious and decadently indulgent combination of warm and spicy notes. Released in 2012, the perfumers behind this sophisticated celebrity fragrance are Marypierre Julien and Caroline Sabas.

Fruity top notes of rich plum and sweet strawberry are heavily dusted with spicy ginger that really grabs your attention. A mouth-watering heart of smooth dark cacao provides a delicious layer of upmarket glamour that you can almost taste, with touches of orchid and heliotrope hovering in the background.

Dry down unleashes roasted coffee notes that work so well with the cacao. Intoxicating patchouli injects hints of dirty, earthy/musk that keep catching your nose, drawing you in for more. This scent settles into a smooth and rich cacao/coffee combo with spiced ginger, and light fruits underpinned with patchouli.

Rebelle Eau de Parfum is a dazzlingly rich fragrance ideal for cold weather seasons of autumn/winter. This is more of an evening fragrance and perfect for when a late lunch is likely to turn into an evening out.

This is an impressive high-performing fragrance that lasts 6+ hours, longer on clothing. Both sillage and longevity are excellent, thanks to the dark coffee and chocolate notes.

As with the original Reb’l Fleur, the clear glass bottle resembles an upside-down high-heel with waving red decor and a matching red cap adorned with a fancy gold necklace. Looks feminine and classy.

Overall, Rebelle Eau de Parfum is a high-quality celebrity fragrance that was so much better than I expected. The way the patchouli dances in and out of the dark notes of coffee and chocolate is captivating. Lasts really well too!

Top Notes:

Strawberry, Ginger, Plum

Mid Notes:

Cacao, Orchid, Heliotrope

Coffee, Patchouli, Amber, Musk

4. Rihanna Rogue Eau de Parfum

Rihanna Rogue Eau de Parfum

Review

Rogue Eau de Parfum by Rihanna is a beautiful fusion of fruit, musk and suede that puts a spring in your step and a smile on your face. Released in 2013, this feel-good scent is perfect for everyday wear.

This scent’s opening unleashes a tidal wave of sumptuous plum and luxuriously soft suede that seem to leapfrog the top notes of lemon blossom and cyclamen. Rose and jasmine are listed in the heart, but they are very light.

Dry-down reveals sweet vanilla and musky/earthy patchouli and amber that provides a slightly more elegant and sophisticated mature vibe. Settles to a classy plum/vanilla soaked suede scent with an undercurrent of exotic musk.

Rogue Eau de Parfum is best enjoyed as an autumn/winter scent, perhaps creeping into spring. It smells expensive and is equally wearable for daytime or evening. I felt this is a sightly dressy fragrance, so smart/casual or fully dressed to impress will do this beauty justice.

The scent itself is durable and will last around 6+ hours per application—longer on clothing. The sillage and projection are excellent, especially the suede and plum notes, with vanilla close behind. 

The straight-lined glass bottle gives off a discreet golden glow. I really love the 6 embossed jewels in the bottle’s bottom, and the oversized cap is a fancy finishing touch.

Overall, Rogue Eau de Parfum is a striking feminine scent with plum, vanilla and suede, bringing plenty of wow-factor. When the patchouli joins the suede and plum, it certainly adds a touch of class and maturity.

Top Notes:

Lemon Blossom, Cyclamen

Mid Notes:

Suede, Plum, Jasmine, Rose

Base Notes:

Patchouli, Vanilla, Musk, Woody Notes, Amber

5. Rihanna Rogue Love Eau de Parfum

Rihanna Rogue Love Eau de Parfum

Review

Rogue Love Eau de Parfum by Rihanna is a gourmand fruity-caramel fragrance with a sweet coconut twist. Released in 2014, rather than being a flanker of the original scent, Rogue Love stands firmly on its own two feet.

The mouth-watering opening of peach, berries and mandarin fill surround you with dazzling fruits. A sweet hit of coconut adds a soothing tropical vibe, with orchid, jasmine and honeysuckle introducing soft powdery florals to the blend. 

The gourmand note of caramel joins with sensual crowd-pleasing vanilla for an ultra-smooth finish in the base. Resinous amber and woody notes discreetly hover in the background. Dries to a well-balanced cocktail of peach, caramel and coconut that gives a fruity tropical vibe.

Rogue Love is definitely more of a daytime scent, ideal for warmer spring, summer months due to its fruits and tropical tones. This is just the type of fragrance I would wear for garden parties, shopping trips, lunches and weekend away.

Performance is pretty good, lasting on the skin 4+ hours and longer on clothing. Silage and projections are reasonable, but you will need to top up if you intend to wear this fragrance for the entire day.

As with the original scent, the straight-lined glass bottle gives off a discreet golden glow. The 6 embossed jewels in the bottom of the bottle are still present, and this time the oversized cap is presented in white.

To summarise, Rouge Love is a welcome addition to the Rihanna collection. It’s is smooth, sweet and fruity with lots of feel-good notes. The caramel/coconut combination is delicious!

Top Notes:

Peach, Red Berries, Mandarin Orange

Mid Notes:

Coconut, Honeysuckle, Orchid, Jasmine Sambac

6. Rihanna Nude Eau de Parfum

Rihanna Nude Eau de Parfum

Review

Launched in 2012, Nude Eau de Parfum remains one of the most popular Rihanna fragrances for the summer. With exotic fruits and pretty florals, this girly scent is easy to wear and just feels good on.

This fruity-floral fragrance opens with the fresh and sweet notes of guava, pear and mandarin before melting into the heart notes of gardenia, jasmine and orange blossom. This makes the main body of the perfume well balanced and leaning towards the sweet side. 

The base notes of fragrant vanilla orchid, musk and sandalwood provide richness and depth that hold the floral and fruity notes beautifully. Settles to a feminine combination of tropical fruits and flowers with hints of wood, musk and a slight soapiness. Very nice.

This is a reasonable performer, so you can expect 4+ hours of wear from Nude Eau de Parfum. Projects really well on a hot summers day, but it runs out of steam a little quicker. Sillage is also reasonable, a trail of about 2-3 ft.

Nude Eau de Parfum is the perfect daytime fragrance for spring and summer, where the floral-fruity side of this fragrance can really shine. I would wear this perfume when out and about on a lovely spring/summers day.

The bottle shares the same reversed high-heel design as Reb’l Fleur. This time, the curved outer detail is in soft nude tomes with a fancy silver necklace around the cap. I feel the bottle could do with a revamp as it looks a bit dated 90s.

Overall, Nude Eau de Parfum blends the sweetness of guava with vibrant vanilla orchid and soft sweet pear to create an incredibly pleasing and rather flirty daytime fragrance.

Top Notes:

Guava, Pear, Mandarin Orange

Mid Notes:

Gardenia, Orange Blossom, Jasmine

Base Notes:

Vanilla Orchid, Sandalwood, Musk

7. Rihanna RiRi Eau de Parfum

Rihanna RiRi Eau de Parfum

Review

RiRi Eau de Parfum is a captivating sweet tropical scent that balances fruit, sweetness and boozy notes to delight the senses. Perfumer Steve DeMercado is the nose behind this exotic Rihanna fragrance launched in 2015. 

Top notes of sweet passionfruit and zesty mandarin are soaked in boozy rum to provide an utterly tempting opening. A discreet floral heart of jasmine, honeysuckle, orange blossom, and freesia add feminine touches. 

During dry-down, rich benzoin, wood and musk introduce a touch of class, and crowd-pleasing vanilla rises to coat every note with its enticing sweetness. Settles to a passionfruit/vanilla scent soaked in booze and a hint of musk.

RiRi is an incredibly versatile fragrance that can be worn during any season. It’s a seductively sweet, almost gourmand scent that is equally suited for daytime wear or night. Think fancy lunches, shopping trips, dinners, dates, nights out with the girls.

The longevity of this scent is 4+ hours with good sillage and projection. The initial blast of sweet fruits projects well for the first couple of hours, settling into a passionfruit/vanilla combo soaked in booze.

Presented in a striking square based glass bottle with curved shoulders that emits a beautiful pink glow of the fragrance lurking inside. The gold cap with a reflective gold sphere on top is eye-catching and is finished with fancy black detail around its neck.

RiRi Eau de Parfum begins as an ultra-sweet tropical fruity fragrance then shifts down a gear to become a sensual fruity/vanilla scent with a sexy, boozy side.

Top Notes:

Passionfruit, Rum, Mandarin, Cassis

Mid Notes:

Honeysuckle, Pink Freesia, Jasmine, Orange Blossom

8. Rihanna Crush Eau de Parfum

Rihanna Crush Eau de Parfum

Review

Crush Eau de Parfum by Rihanna is a bright citrus fragrance with provocative flowers and sweet berry notes. Released in 2016, this scent is an attention-seeking combination of sweet, sharp and floral notes.

This fragrance opens with fresh, zesty bergamot and mandarin nicely sprinkled with pink pepper. A floral heart of exotic ylang-ylang and delicate soft rose brings a wave of sensual feminine notes. Red berries add a delicious sweetness.

The dry-down unleashes a decadent musky base, supported by earthy patchouli and hints of wood. This fragrance settles to a beautiful ylang-ylang scent that does not overpower thanks to fresh citrus and berries.

An ideal fragrance for spring/summer, Crush Eau de Parfum has all the style and class of a Chanel fragrance without the intensity that can sometimes be too strong for hot days. This is a versatile scent that leans more towards daytime wear.

You should manage 4+ hours of longevity from Crush, and I found it projects about 2ft with a nice sillage trail. The Ylang-ylang adds real wow-factor and is nicely balanced by the citrus.

Presented in the striking square based glass bottle as RiRi with curved shoulders that projects the light golden glow of the fragrance. The gold cap with a reflective gold sphere on top is eye-catching and is finished with a fancy gold necklace.

Overall, Crush Eau de Parfum is a classy celebrity fragrance that smells expensive and refined. Ideal for spring/summer wear, it surrounds you in a cloud of happy feelings. Beautiful.

9. Rihanna Kiss Eau de Parfum

Rihanna Kiss Eau de Parfum

Review

Released in 2017, Kiss Eau de Parfum is an alluring fruity floral scent with a twist of vanilla and wood. Fans of this popular Rihanna fragrance have mentioned they receive lots of compliments! And we all love a compliment now and again.

Rich dark plum leads the opening and is lightened by pretty white floral notes of neroli and freesia. An additional bouquet of peony, gardenia and orange blossom really crank up the intensity of the flowery notes. However, the plum becomes sweeter and holds its own.

Upon dry-down, sweet vanilla and cashmere wood add some smoothness. Musk, cedar and ambergris bring some sensual tones that allow this fragrance to be worn during the evening and daytime. Dries to a sweet plum/floral scent with a musk and wood base.

This sexy fragrance is equally wearable for day or night in any season. It feels a little dressy and very classy, so I would wear it for fancy dinners, out for drinks, parties, weddings, and days out somewhere nice.

Kiss Eau de Parfum projects reasonably strongly for the first 2 hours and slowly settles to a skin scent after 4+ hours. The plum and white flowers are the most prominent.

Presented in the striking square based glass bottle as RiRi with curved shoulders that projects the pale blue/purple glow of the fragrance resting inside. The gold cap with a reflective gold sphere on top is nicely finished with a fancy embossed gold bow.

Overall, Kiss Eau de Parfum is an intoxicating combination of lush plum and white floral notes. It can be pretty intense for the first hour but settles down beautifully. Smells similar to some of the Juicy Couture fragrances.

Plum, Freesia, Neroli

Mid Notes:

Gardenia, Peony, Orange Blossom

10. Rihanna 777 Nude Eau de Parfum

Rihanna 777 Nude Eau de Parfum

Review

This limited edition of Nude Eau de Parfum was launched in 2012 to celebrate Rihanna’s incredible performance of 7 concerts in 7 countries in 7 days! This is the SAME exotic combination of fruits and pretty florals in a stunning presentation box that opens at the front.

777 Nude Eau de Parfum opens with the sweetness of guava, pear and mandarin before transitioning into a floral heart notes of gardenia, jasmine and orange blossom.

Upon dry-down sweet and fragrant vanilla orchid combines with sensual musk and sandalwood to introduce richness and depth that balance the floral and fruity notes. This fragrance settles to a feminine combination of tropical fruits and floral notes with hints of wood, musk and a delightful soapy edge.

This is a decent performing scent, so you can expect 4+ hours of wear. I found it projects really well on a hot summers day but does run out of steam a little quicker. Sillage is also good, a trail of about 2-3 ft. I only tested the original fragrance, not this limited edition, but they are both the same scent.

777 Nude Eau de Parfum is the ideal daytime fragrance for spring and summer, where its floral and fruity notes can cast their magic. I would wear this perfume when out and about during a bright spring/summers day, perhaps a picnic, or going for an al fresco lunch.

The bottle shares the same reversed high-heel design as Reb’l Fleur. The curved outer detail is in soft nude tomes with a fancy silver necklace around the cap. The bottle is nestling inside a stunning presentation box that opens at the front and glitters beautifully. Comes with a lock and key!

Overall, 777 Nude Eau de Parfum is perfect for Rihanna mega-fans who want to own something special. The fragrance fuses the sweetness of guava with sweet vanilla orchid and soft pear to create a flirty feel-good daytime fragrance. I have seen a few for sale on eBay, so keep a lookout.

So, Which Rihanna Perfume Smells The Best?

The best smelling Rihanna fragrance has to be Reb’l Fleur Eau de Parfum. The delicious opening of peach, sweet plum and red berries leads to a heart of sweet sensual coconut and light flowers. Attention-seeking vanilla soon delights, supported by patchouli, light musk and a touch of amber. Longevity is 5+ hours.

Conclusion

The best Rihanna perfumes deliver confidence and style injected undercurrent of feminine playfulness. Contrasting tropical notes of guava and coconut collide with the sweetness of caramel and cacao. Exotic florals such as ylang-ylang and honeysuckle work so well with sensual woods and musks. This is no uninspired celebrity make-do offering. The Rihanna fragrance collection is grown up, classy, and downright addictive.

If you happen to find any of these fragrances at a discount, most are a blind buy, in my opinion. As long as you enjoy sweet fruity floral aromas with some sensual musky undertones, you can’t go too far wrong. These are all easy to wear scents, and most are ideal for spring/summer.
