Rihanna announced her newest perfume, aptly titled "RiRi," with an overwhelmingly pink, pearled, and gloved campaign photo. Although this is not the image of a woman who dismembers her accountant, we understand that Rihanna would like to actually sell this perfume. While we have yet to get a whiff of this pink fragrance, one can only assume it smells like one of the following:

- A two pound bag of sugar

- Whatever Marilyn Monroe smelled like in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

- A trust fund baby

- Baby perfume

- The plastic from a newly purchased Barbie Dream House

- The deed to a third home in Monte Carlo

- Dinner on the table at 6:00pm

- A pink frosted sprinkle donut licked by Ariana Grande

- One of Paris Hilton's Pomeranians
