On Friday I attended the launch of Nicki Minaj’s first fragrance, Pink Friday at Selfridges, which comes in a OTT bottle, a statuesque-Barbie version of the diva singer with a touch of the classic Jean Paul Gaultier fragrance bottles, and with the deluxe 100ml size the bottle also comes with a Nicki Minaj necklace.
Like the star herself, I think there will be a lot of people loving this bottle and some will find it a little creepy, I think it is the gold head with pink lips that does it – I love it though especially as you have to pull her head off to spray on the fragrance!!!
As for the fragrance itself, I have to be honest I was really impressed with it, celebrity scents can be a little hit or miss, but I actually liked the extremely sweet and fruity smell, which reminded me a little of Juicy Couture’s scent, Viva la Juicy, with its top notes of Starfruit and Mandarin, mixed in with lotus and jasmine floral notes with vanilla and musks.
The fragrance is exclusive to Selfridges until April, and Minaj fans or Barbz as they are more affectionately known can also pick up a limited edition handmade couture design to dress up the 100ml bottle – there is ‘Duchess Pink’, complete with an ice cream cone on her hat, ‘Whip It Like Minaj’, a bondage leather look, as well as ‘Starships Minaj’ that features a hooded designed with a jewelled necklace, and a secret look called ‘British Pink’, which I had a sneek preview at and it looked very bling!!!
What do you think of Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday fragrance?
