Not content with taking the charts by storm, platinum selling rapper Nicki Minaj has branched into perfumery and is currently in the throes of releasing her second scent, Minajesty.
“Minajesty smells like a passionate love affair,” Minaj declares. “Mysterious and sexy. An unforgettable and hypnotizing scent.” The bottle, as seen above, is shaped like Nicki’s top half, with a curly pink wig, and a red bustier. We’re told that the scent has a base of vanilla and musk, with over-riding notes along the lines of peach, red currant and lemon, with smatterings of magnolia, pink frangipani, and tiger orchid – exotic!
With her last perfume, Pink Friday, nominated as Fragrance Of The Year at the FiFi Awards there is promise for Minaj, who has shot the advertisement for her scent with none other than David LaChapelle – who also shot her M.A.C VIVA GLAM campaign.
“I never dreamed I’d have a fragrance as a lil black girl in Queens, New York that was born in Trinidad,” Minaj says. “My fans made me #1 in Macy’s with the first fragrance and the rest is history.”
Better believe! It’s looking like Nicki’s fans have their sights set on this one already. The perfume is due in Fall.
