The 14 TikTok-Famous Scents Worth the Money, Ranked by Me

There have always been perfumes that take the world (or at least fragrance lovers) by storm. Those of us who existed in the ’90s and 2000s might recall the hype surrounding CK One, the world’s first marketed unisex scent. We might have begged our parents to buy us a bottle of Elizabeth Arden Sunflowers or Clinique Happy or the iconic Gap fragrances. Back then, we’d catch wind of these fragrances via TV commercials, magazine ads, or during trips to the department store beauty counter. But these days, all you have to do (aside from reading Who What Wear, ahem) is open up your TikTok app and see what’s trending on #PerfumeTok—though, I’m not talking about vabbing. Granted, there are some major differences between the perfumes that were popular 20 years ago and the ones that are blessed with T...

Rihanna's Cult-Favorite Perfume Is Finally Back in Stock—for Good This Time

In 1789, Benjamin Franklin said that the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. Well, I’d like to add a third, less morbid truth to the list: the fact that Rihanna smells good. Not only does she just give off a certain aura, but a slew of other celebs, such as Lil Nas X and Cardi B, have waxed poetic about how good Rihanna smells. Rihanna allegedly smells so good that her first luxury fragrance, Fenty Eau de Parfum, is one of the only celebrity perfumes that we keep on rotation. The problem is it’s nearly always sold out since it was initially launched as a limited-edition fragrance and typically sells out within hours of each restock. Now, however, the brand has decided to make Fenty Eau de Parfum a mainstay in the Fenty Beauty family, which means that you now always have acces...

The 10 Best Summer Perfumes We’ll Be Wearing All Season

 As a beauty lover, I wish I could say I loved all of my editorial beats (hair, makeup, skincare, nails, wellness, etc.) equally. Alas, I do not. I could wax poetic about my favorite skincare and makeup products for far longer than anyone would ever want to pay attention, but other topics like hair or fragrance feel trickier.Re: hair, I have an unapologetically straightforward and boring product routine and styling repertoire, and re: fragrance, I've just never been a huge perfume lover. Scent is such a personal part ...
