Spring is definitely here now and the summer months are fast approaching, so it’s time to switch up my fragrances and opt for something a little sweeter than my cold month scents. I’ve been trailing the beauty list of The Hut and finally found my signature summer fragrance for this summer…
This year, I’m going for Nicki Minaj’s first release, Pink Friday.
Speaking about her debut fragrance, Nicki Minaj is quoted as having said, ‘Pink Friday is a celebration of my life at this moment; it is a reflection of me as a creator, and an expression of me as a woman’. Well, just like Nicki Minaj, this perfume is super girlie and bold. The bottle is certainly outrageous like Nicki Minaj herself, being over the top and in your face- it definitely makes a statement on my dressing table! Pink Friday is a sweet and fruity floral scent that really packs a punch but it has those gorgeous musky base notes that you all know I love and I swear by. I like a perfume that is strong, makes a statement and is long lasting, and Pink Friday certainly is.
The fragrance itself contains top notes of star fruit, boysenberry and Italian mandarin, heart notes of lotus flower and jasmine petals with a base of creamy vanilla, caramelised pear, sensual musks and woods. If you like Viva La Juicy (which is one of my FAVOURITE summer perfumes), Escada’s summer releases or Britney Spears perfumes, then I think you’d like this.
Pink Friday is one of those fragrances that makes me feel summery and girlie, I love wearing it. The perfume would make a great gift for girls and women particularly in their teens and twenties, as well as for fans of Nicki Minaj. The packaging alone is to die for- super super girlie, very pink and very cute!
I have the 50ml bottle which is available for £29 from The Hut and there is also a larger 100ml bottle for £39 and a small 30ml bottle available for £24 again from The Hut. There’s also a hair mist and body lotion available which are great for layering the scent to make it deeper and last even longer. The fragrance alone is pretty long lasting as a few spritzes on my pulse points leaving me smelling gorgeous all day while I’m out and about or at work.
Have you tried the Nicki Minaj perfume? What did you love about it?
