Nicki Minaj Makes 'pink Friday' Fragrance Debut
Nicki Minaj hit up NYC department store Macys yesterday to promote her first fragrance, adding to her merchandise, which has previously included a MAC lipstick and Barbie doll. Thousands of Barbz headed to the location to support their idol, who wore a pink blazer, black and pink police hat, striped trousers and ridiculously high heels…
The fragrance is said to be a blend of vanilla, musk and sweet floral tones. The bottle is an unusual one, which literally bears a resemblance to its creator. She told MTV News: "I've been thinking about [a fragrance] for like, the last two years actually; I knew I was going to call it Pink Friday.
“I didn't know I would have a pink wig on the bottle until I met with the fragrance company and they asked me what I wanted my bottle to look like and I said — is there any way we can put a pink wig on it?"
"They said, 'You know what? Let's try ' and they came back with sketches and I was floored that they actually nailed it, I couldn't stop looking at the sketches."
No one can complain that the design is simple, with the white and gold bottle featuring a custom Nicki Minaj nameplate necklace and her trademark pink lipstick alongside the pink wig.
Minaj gushed: "When I saw the actual picture and it began coming to life, I was like 'wow, my fans are going to spaz out when they see this.’"
The scent is currently available at Macys; but expect a Pink Friday fragrance stand near you soon.
