These Are All The Fragrances Ariana Grande Has Released

Ariana Grande has undergone a stunning transformation through the years, but one constant in her career is her inclination toward all things feminine and sweet. That's the case for her collection of fragrances, labeled by consumers and perfume buffs as one of the best celebrity brands on the market (per The Zoe Report). While her personal life has been the center of a significant amount of media coverage, Grande's professional endeavors deserve attention and applause, too. The singer has made her mark in the beauty industry. Alongside her fragrance line, Grande has the vegan and cruelty-free brand R.E.M. Beauty on her resumé.


But, it's her perfumes that seem to have especially taken the beauty world by storm. Grande's journey into the fragrance world began in 2015 when she began her partnership with Luxe Brands, Inc., according to a news release from the company. The pop star has released eight original scents.

Whether it's songs or perfumes, Grande can't help but release hit after hit.


Ariana Grande released her first perfume, Ari Eau de Parfum by Ariana Grande, in 2015. The gourmand and floral-inspired fragrance has a variety of fruit scents, flowers, and even marshmallows as a part of its aroma (per Ulta). Pop stars have launched fragrance brands before, but diving into the world of perfume seemed personal to Grande. "I'm asked so often about which fragrance I'm wearing, or if I have a signature scent. I do have favorites, but I really want to create something that encompasses everything I love," she said in a 2015 interview with Women's Wear Daily


Grande partnered with Luxe Brands, making her the company's first celebrity fragrance, according to the brand. It proved to be a successful partnership. The perfume held its own amongst the cascade of celebrity fragrance lines. With its affordable price of around $45 and beautiful rose crystal-like design, Ari was a successful first step into the world of beauty.


With the massive success of her debut fragrance, it was only a matter of time before Ariana Grande released another perfume. In 2016, she released the fragrance Frankie, named after her brother. Frankie by Ariana Grande, a gender-inclusive perfume, was "meant to be enjoyed by ALL" according to Frankie Grande's Instagram. The pop star was seemingly inspired by her brother to create a non-gendered perfume after he stole one too many of her Ari perfume bottles from her. "My brother Frankie is obsessed with it and wearing it everywhere," she told Women's Wear Daily in 2015, talking about her debut fragrance, Ari by Ariana Grande. 


The next year, Frankie by Ariana Grande hit shelves and people loved it. A limited-edition find, the perfume had scents of pink pepper, pear, apricot, sandalwood, musks, and sugar crystals, according to The Hollywood Reporter. And while her second perfume was only available for a short time, it cemented her place as a celebrity fragrance icon.

Sweet Like Candy

The singer stuck to her perfume roots with her third release, offering another fruity and gourmand scent (with a touch of marshmallow, of course). Sweet Like Candy launched in 2016. It was "A luscious burst of sugar-frosted blackberry and juicy Italian bergamot sparkles with sweet addiction, while creamy cashmere woods whipped with a delicate touch of pink floralcy will keep you coming back for more," Ariana Grande's public relations team said in a statement about her third fragrance, per Bustle


Chief Marketing Officer at Luxe Noreen Dodge shared details about Grande's involvement in the perfume's design and launch. "She was very involved, from visiting the fragrance house, to sitting down with the packaging designer and attending meetings with the marketing team," Dodge told Billboard. "Ariana wanted to ensure that her personal voice and touch were constant throughout the brand." And like its predecessors, Sweet Like Candy propelled the music star to another level of brand success.


Ariana Grande released her fourth perfume in 2017, according to Hello! Magazine. Moonlight by Ariana Grande is a warm, floral fragrance that combines the less feminine scents of Frankie with the sweet, sensual aromas of her other two perfumes, according to its description on Ulta. The pop star and her ponytail were iconic by 2017, and fans were excited for yet another album and Ari-approved perfume. 


Named after her opening track off of the "Dangerous Woman" album, vanilla and peony are strong notes in Moonlight. The pop star also included her signature marshmallow scent. "This new fragrance captures the artist's luminescent personality and the special relationship Ariana has with her fans. It was created to inspire confidence to be yourself and carries the strong message of being a positive light to those around you," Luxe Brands said in an interview with Billboard.


Cloud may be the most iconic — and controversial — of Ariana Grande's fragrances. Her fifth release, Cloud by Ariana Grande, shook the beauty world to its core in 2018. Packaged in an adorable, iridescent cloud-shaped spray bottle, this warm gourmand perfume includes sensual musks, hints of fruit and flowers, and "playful" details of créme de coconut and creamy blonde vanilla, according to Ulta


But some thought that Grande's Cloud was familiar, reminding them of a high-end perfume: Baccarat Rouge 540. The Internet took up arms in the debate, with this Reddit discussion highlighting how some thought Cloud was a dupe. That didn't stop Cloud from reaching astronomical levels of fragrance success. Luxe Brands noted that Cloud earned two FIFI awards in 2019: the FIFI Deutschland award and the FIFI US fragrance of the year women's popular award. And it continued to be a hit in the world of perfume. According to The Zoe Report, Cloud sold every 11 seconds in 2021.

Thank U Next

"Thank U, Next" wasn't just an earworm and chart-topping song. After the success of her pop single, Ariana Grande announced on Instagram that Thank U Next Eau de Parfum would be hitting shelves in August 2019. In finding the scent to encapsulate all things "Thank U, Next," Grande looked back at her first perfume, Ari. "I wanted to make a fragrance that smells related to my first fragrance Ari but more summery, so I revisited Ari's fruity pear and raspberry notes and changed it up by adding some coconut," Grande said in a news release, according to Harper's Bazaar


Thank U Next is a floral and gourmand perfume that features white pear, wild raspberry, macaroon sugar, and other notes (per Ulta). The bottle's heartbreak design feels like something straight out of the "Thank U, Next" music video — shamelessly feminine and confident.


2020 brought Ariana Grande's next perfume: R.E.M. Eau de Parfum. The singer seems to love all things related to R.E.M., as her beauty brand of the same name explained that R.E.M. is "the phase of sleep during which your most creative, limitless and vivid dreams occur." 


She took that inspiration in the marketing for her sixth fragrance. Although the song appeared to be named after one of her tracks off the album "Sweetener," the media launch followed the style and character of her "Break Free" music video. Grande gave some context as to why that "Break Free" character meant so much to her and deserved to be revisited. "In my dreams, I'm always the version of myself I was in break free tbh," Grande wrote on social media when unveiling R.E.M. (per Teen Vogue). R.E.M. features both musk and floral scents, according to Ulta.

God Is A Woman

Ariana Grande's most recent perfume has been her most ambitious yet. God Is A Woman Eau de Parfum boasts its sustainable features on Ulta's website, where it is exclusively available both in stores and online. This "clean" perfume takes on a "fruity musk" according to its description. "We have, of course, been cruelty-free but taking this next step moving into clean, with responsibly sourced materials and vegan ingredients, is something we are all very proud of," Grande said in a statement, according to StyleCaster


Even some of the packaging for the perfume is sustainably inspired, with its reusable base made from 60% plant-based materials. With fresh scents of ambrette, pear, rose petals, vanilla, and cedarwood, Grande hoped that her nature-inspired perfume inspired others. "I really adore this fragrance and hope it makes everyone wearing it feel beautiful and empowered," Grande continued in her statement.

If God is a woman, she might smell like Ariana Grande.
