Parfum Du Jour | Nicki Minaj Pink Friday
The thought of Nicki Minaj just connotes the colour pink, fabulousity, boldness and sassiness and everything about her new fragrance, Pink Friday* £39 is very much that and is therefore very Nicki Minaj!
The fragrance which just launched on the 15th March in Selfridges tries to capture the rapper’s loud, girly, vivacious and sassy personality and the notes that best suit those qualities are starfruit, Italian mandarin and boysenberry at the top, a cloud of electric lotus flower and starry jasmine petals at the heart and it then dries down to a creamy indulgence of vanilla and caramelised pear blended with warm musks and woods. It’s a very sweet fragrance just like Minaj‘s girly persona but it also packs a punch which fits her tough and edgy side perfectly too.
But enough about the fragrance, I’m sure many intrigued about the bottle, why wouldn’t you be? I posted a photo of the bottle on Facebook and Instagram and you all had opinions on the bottle varying from scary, Jean Paul Gaultier-esque, pretty and even it reminding you of an Egyptian pharaoh! I personally like the bottle, it’s not the usual bottle I’d have on my dresser but the fact that it’s so different is exactly why I’d have it on my dresser if you get what I mean. Which other fragrances out there have mini outfits to dress the bottle up with? Pink Friday also has a collection of handmade perfume bottle couture to pimp up your bottles with. My bottle is wearing Dutchess of Pink, a special pink salute to fans across the globe. There are some other interesting outfits including British Pink, an outfit that’ll be revealed by Nicki Minaj next week. I had a little sneak peek at the outfit and all I’ll say is that there’s diamante but if you want to see it and get your hands on British Pink you need to rush off to Selfridges as soon as Nicki Minaj reveals the outfit on Twitter as there’s a very limited number of them and we all know Nicki Minaj‘s fans or her Barbz as she likes to call them go in hard and will snap them up quicker than you can say Pink Friday!
