Nicki Minaj Pink Friday

I was certain I’d blogged about this perfume already but when I search my site I only find one mention in a monthly favourites video so I figure.. it deserves it’s own post. The monthly favourites may have given away that I do indeed like this fragrance and to be honest the whole celebrity endorsed thing and the uber tacky bottle only made me love it more.. I mean, how can you not love this? I bought it online without ever testing it, I just had to have the bottle on my vanity and figured it was still a good price for a potential ornament only. Luckily I actually really like it, if you look at the notes I think there’s something for everyone, it’s floral (which I don’t usually like), sweet and fruity but it also has vanilla, musk and woody elements to it and in my opinion totally unoffensive. Some scents can be a bit ‘in yer face’ – I personally hate the Jimmy Choo, the top note of pear is obnoxiously strong and for me it’s a clear your sinuses, nail polish remover type smell. A heavy scent is fine if you love it but if you don’t.. not awesome and bear in mind that not everyone you meet/work with will share your taste in fragrance. Pink Friday is light – which is what I meant by unoffensive if you didn’t get my long winded explanation – which I like but it doesn’t last long. It’s not a scent I can smell on my clothes the next day and I don’t think it hangs around for long on my skin but it’s cheap enough to justify topping up throughout the day if you love it.

I don’t think I’ll repurchase this when it runs out purely because of the staying power and the fact I have other I like more but for the moment it’s my most worn, a lovely summer scent and I’d definitely recommend you give it a sniff.

30ml is £23.00, 50ml £28.00 is and 100ml is £38.00 so it’s definitely more cost effective to get the larger – another thing to note is that each bottle is slightly different which I think is a cool little feature. The 30ml bottle is the one I have here, regular glass with a kind of ombre effect top (I’ve also seen frosted versions of this), the 50ml is the same with a solid white top and the 100ml is the same as the 50ml but with a Nicki Minaj necklace.. it’s the little details.

I don’t think I’ll repurchase this when it runs out purely because of the staying power and the fact I have other I like more but for the moment it’s my most worn, a lovely summer scent and I’d definitely recommend you give it a sniff.

    I agree with you wholeheartedly about this perfume as I have a sample and found the staying power was poor which is a shame as it’s such a lovely scent!
