Nicki Minaj got a dramatic make-under for our cover story this month, but for her new perfume, it’s back to her signature decked-out style.
A special collectible version of her debut fragrance that launched last summer, the new Pink Friday Nicki Minaj Special Edition scent comes in a bottle silhouetted after Nicki herself, complete with frosted pink bustier and white wig. “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.”
The floral gourmand fragrance combines refreshing notes of water lily, honeysuckle, and star jasmine petals with a fruity base of grapefruit, apple, and white raspberry. “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,” Minaj said. “Each detail needs to ‘wow’ me or it is not an option.”
