Happy National Fragrance Day! A fabulous and alluring scent always leaves a lasting impression. Celebrities tapped into the fragrance industry in the 1980s, creating their own special perfumes and fragrances for their fans to be a little bit closer to them. Check out a gallery of the most popular celebrity fragrances inside.

The fragrance industry credits Italian actress Sophia Loren with creating the first celebrity fragranced. She released her self-titled perfume, Sophia, in 1981. It was created with legendary fragrance company Coty and started a wave of celebrity fragrances.

Since then, iconic celebrities like Beyoncé, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, Michael Jordan, and Elizabeth Taylor have released their own fragrances. Fans may recall Rihanna’s Nude perfume having everyone in a chokehold in 2012. Now, she has a new scent with Fenty Beauty called Fenty Eau de Parfum by Rihanna.

In a viral interview, Beyoncé talks about her perfume True Star on the “Late Show with David Letterman.” Though the mega star’s special fragrance hasn’t maintained its status on the list of most popular fragrances created by celebrities today, it definitely had the girlies rushing to their nearest cosmetic store in 2005.
