Nicki Minaj Debuts New Fragrance: “Minajesty Smells Like A Passionate Love Affair!”
Nicki Minaj is continuing her reign on the celebrity fragrance market with her new perfume Minajesty.
Hoping to duplicate the success she accomplished with her first fragrance Pink Friday, a best-seller at Macy’s, the 30-year-old rap diva created a new scent housed in the now-signature Minaj-shaped bottle which she debuted on Instagram. “#Minajesty smells like a passionate love affair,” she wrote. “Mysterious and sexy. An unforgettable and hypnotizing scent.”
The design was apparently molded by the “Starships” singer step by step. “Developing a fragrance, it’s every girl’s dream,” Minaj told ELLE.com. “As an artist, it’s an extension of my personality and a way for my fans to feel closer to me. When I design, I am involved in every aspect of the decision-making process—it seems easy because I always get this feeling inside: I know if something is right or wrong. Each detail needs to ‘wow’ me or it is not an option.”
Hoping to wow her Barbz, Minajesty features top notes of peach, tiger orchid, and fluffy vanilla according to People.com. “Minajesty… is sultry, captivating and powerful,” Minaj said. “There is a sexy power behind having self-confidence. I want this fragrance to invite my Barbz to celebrate their glamorous side, live in the moment and be outrageous knowing that true power comes from within.”
While the Minajesty bottle comes with a short pink wig and matching bustier, Minaj hinted that future designs may differ. “ The ones below are outfits that came with Pink Friday for a limited time when we launched in the UK,” she wrote on Instagram with the photo below. “Yes, because they’ve done so well, we’re working on outfits for the U.S. I never dreamed I’d have a fragrance as a Lil black girl in Queens, New York that was born in Trinidad. My fans made me #1 in Macy’s with the 1st fragrance and the rest is history. Love u guys. #GodIsInControl.”
Minajesty hits stores this September.
