Now You Too Can Smell Like Nicki Minaj

Nicki MinajShe's already released a limited-edition makeup range with Ricky Martin for M.A.C.'s VIVA GLAM, and now Nicki Minaj is going cosemtics-counter rogue: the pop star has just signed a licensing deal to release her first solo-branded product, a scent.

What will a Nicki Minaj fragrance smell like? The details are still under wraps, but I can imagine a floral-fruity fragrance, exploding with giddy excitement and magically evocative notes of jasmine, Diet Coke, and neon. All topped off with a sweet hint of bleach and nail polish.

The scent will be available at department stores nationwide, and it'll likely be a big seller: she's releasing it through Give Back Brands, which handled Justin Bieber's bestselling Someday fragrance.

She tells WWD: "I have always been a huge fan of great fragrances. This is yet another extension of my creative expression. I designed the scent and bottle with my Barbz in mind."

If I were a Barbz, I would feel so honored. Nicki's just always thinking about me, doing things for me. It's selfless, actually: she doesn't even get anything in return.
