Rihanna Plans to Release Men’s Cologne

Rihanna revealed that she wanted to release a fragrance for men.

“I want dudes to smell like [when] you wake up, you know that smell,” the We Found Love singer told Access Hollywood,. “Their cologne is a little bit old… you spray it on their jackets and take it with you just to keep them there, that it smells cozy and it smells sexy.”

The Barbados native says scent is one of the first things she notices on a man. “If I see you and look good, chances are you won’t turn my head. I will look away… but if you smell good, I will whip my neck around! [A guy] can’t leave until I figure out what [he’s] wearing,” she told Shaun Robinson.

She made the announcement during a press junket for Battleship, in which she makes her acting debut. The movie is set to be released on May 18.

The untitled fragrance will be Rihanna’s third; she released Reb’l Fleur and Rebelle, both women’s fragrances, in 2011. Rihanna got into fragrances after she had been combining other scents for years. “Over the years, I layered many different scents to get something that was truly my own. But I wanted something that said ‘Rihanna was here,’” she said.
