Everyone knew there were some anticipated Thank U, Next beauty products on the horizon when it was found in April that Ariana Grande applied to trademark the phrase in the context of cosmetics. Only a month later, Grande personally leaked the information that a Thank U, Next perfume was in the works. And now, Grande has taken to Instagram to make a way more official-trying announcement about the perfume’s hugely awaited drop.
So far, we don’t have too many details about what to anticipate inside the bottle other than what she teased when she first announced a Thank U, Next perfume was in the works on Instagram in May. The fragrance she’s referring to, Ari, options top notes of pear, pink grapefruit, and raspberry, middle notes of Muguet, rosebuds, and vanilla orchid, and base notes of marshmallow, musk, blonde woods — so maybe she threw in some hints of coconut or salty ocean air.
It’s no surprise that Grande is expanding her perfume empire considering how effectively her different scents have been doing, each with followers and with fragrance execs. All of her Eau de parfum offerings on Ulta’s website — Cloud, Sweet Like Candy, and Ari — have 4.5 out of five stars, and Cloud won the Fragrance of the Year: Women’s Popular Award at June’s Fragrance Foundation Awards ceremony.
