After selling out almost immediately when it launched in August 2021, Rihanna’s fragrance Fenty Eau de Parfum has finally been restocked. While die-hard fans of hers have been itching to try the perfume, this time it just might do the trick. The holidays are fast approaching – you can gift this to someone you love (or keep it for yourself!)
Fenty Eau de Parfum
I’m not the easiest person to please when it comes to fragrance, but as always, Rihanna has knocked this one out of the park. It’s my instinct to look through the fragrance notes and judge them, thinking, It has a base note of leather, it’s not my thing. Fenty Eau de Parfum is a mix of notes that, on the surface, don’t seem to go together. Floral rose and geranium mingle with tangy mandarin and sweet coconut. There is musk, incense and blueberries. And to top it off, none of these fall into the typical top note, middle note, and base note structure.
So I really had no idea what to expect when I finally got my first whiff of the perfume. Would it be fruity? Spicy? Floral and fresh? The first thing that caught my eye was the vanilla, closely followed by the mandarin orange and some of the flowers. I was expecting something fresh and subtle, but the fragrance was full-bodied and warm, almost too much for me in the heat of summer.

Now that the weather is cooler, I want nothing more than to wear this fragrance every day. There’s something sensual about the mix of notes: a bit of mystery, which doesn’t reveal too much (but enough).
There’s no telling how long the fragrance will be available this time, but if you’re looking to get the perfume of the season, Fenty Eau de Parfum will not disappoint you.
