Lionel Richie has released two signature scents, and naturally, he named them after his most famous lyric.

Hello by Lionel Richie is now available for purchase on the iconic singer’s Amazon store. The Grammy Award-winning star unveiled both his and hers scents, influenced by his passion for music and love of romance.

On Instagram, Richie also revealed that he began with inspiration from his own garden, as well as scent memories from his worldly travels.

According to the product description, the female Eau de Parfum is an elegant yet sensual, sultry scent with floral notes of pear, lemon, grapefruit and pink pepper. There’s also a hint of jasmine and tuberose and a rich, alluring base of honey, tonka, ambrox and pachouli.

One reviewer said, “This perfume smells so good. I know I took a chance on not being able to smell it first but I was very glad I did. I’ve told my friends and let them smell it. They like it also. Considering how much fragrances cost this it’s a steal, for the size and the price. Try it, I’m sure you will like it.”

Meanwhile, the male Eau de Toilette is described as refreshing but sexy, with inviting top notes of bergamot, grapefruit, bitter orange and mint. The delicate heart notes include lavender, Cashmeran and violet leaves, with base notes of patchouli, vetiver and ambrox. The result? A distinctive, exclusive aroma that leaves a memorable, masculine impression.

One happy customer shared, “We purchased both scents for men and women and I must say they both smell amazing. I wasn’t sure what to think when they arrived but very happy with them both that we bought 2 more bottles. You go Lionel!!! We adore you and now smell amazing because of you. Now just bring back your candles please.”

Both bottles also incorporate a glamorous gold lattice design and either gold onyx or pearl, making them the perfect addition to any medicine cabinet. 

In a release, Richie said, “I’ve always looked at fragrance as a way to express yourself, so I wanted to take my creative expression one step further and decided to craft my very own fragrances. While working through this process, I realized there are many similarities between songwriting and fragrance creation — the notes have to work together.”

“I merged my own style and the embodiment of my love songs to create a fragrance collection I’m proud to share with fans and people around the world,” he concluded.
