Nicki Minaj Onika & Minajesty Exotic Edition ~ new perfumes

Nicki Minaj Onika

Singer Nicki Minaj will launch her third fragrance, Onika, in July. Also due that month is Minajesty Exotic Edition, a new flanker to 2013's Minajesty. So far, there is very little information available about either fragrance.

Onika (shown above) ~ per Ms. Minaj, Onika "SMELLS LIKE ANGELS IN THE GARDEN OF....perfection." I will update with notes when I can. Update: the notes feature pear, starfruit, mandarin, water lily, orchid, osmanthus, sugar cane, white musk and cedarwood.

Minajesty Exotic Edition (shown below) ~ Minajesty Exotic Edition is scheduled to debut on HSN on July 11. Again, I will update with notes when I can. Update: the notes feature mango, orange, tiger lilies, lavender, musk and cedar. In 100 ml Eau de Parfum.

    “SMELLS LIKE ANGELS IN THE GARDEN OF….perfection.”? Umm, okay, no.

    • Robin says:

      The angels in my garden of perfection are probably wearing something like Serge Lutens Tubereuse Criminelle, but presumably Ms. Minaj’s angels have different ideas :-)

      • mutzi says:

        I could see that, although TC is awful on me – smells like rotting flowers in rancid water. When I think angels in the garden of perfection, I think of something like Juste un Reve.

    ….IN THE GARDEN OF…rejection.

    Who on earth buys these?!

    • Omega says:




      Could slice this so many ways!

    • Robin says:

      Minajesty was really sweet, but not bad otherwise. I’ll give this one a shot, why not?

      • Merlin says:

        I’m usually good at blocking out bottles, but these are so preposterous I haven’t yet tried anything from the range!

        • Robin says:

          Whereas they’re growing on me, sorry to say.

          • Merlin says:

            I’m not sure I get the angle on these. Is it a kind of over-the-top kitsch-and-we-know-it vibe? Or are they supposed to be somehow enigmatic?

          • Robin says:

            Well, it’s over the top kitsch either way, right? Whether it’s meant that way or not. I seriously know absolutely nothing about Nicki Minaj or her fan base, so couldn’t say what it’s meant as.

          • Merlin says:

            lol! It seemed as though you were starting to like the bottles more than you had in the past, so I was wondering whether there was some aspect or angle that I was missing. I do like some things that are deliberately over the top, but these bottles simply strike me as monstrous:)

          • Merlin says:

            Regardless of the intended effect (given that I too am clueless about N. Minaj)

          • Robin says:

            I think it’s really just that I’ve liked some of the later color schemes better than the first one for Pink Friday. Also, now that it’s a series of them, it’s funnier to me…

          • Merlin says:

            All lined up on a shelf they must look quite funny!

          • Laurels says:

            You certainly can’t mistake them for anything else! There’s something to be said for having a distinctive and consistent aesthetic.

    Minajesty Carrot Top Edition

  4. CM says:

    Is it just me who read “Oinka” ?

    I immediately thought “SMELLS LIKE….. PIGGIES! “

  5. Omega says:

    I probably annoy everyone on here..but


    • juicejones says:

      Keep it going! Although, I kinda like that sweet, toxic blast that hits you between doors one and two when entering the Maxx.

      • Omega says:


        I thought of Raggity Ann doll/Ronald McDonald mixed with Madonna clone. Not my fave mix for sure! Creepy!

        I see Truth or Dare now for like 15 bucks or less, what, nobody liked the creepy coffin bottle?

    • Laurels says:

      Ha! Although I haven’t seen any of hers there or at Marshall’s yet.

      • Omega says:

        It’s already on Home Shopping Network, what’s after that? lol

  6. happy888cat says:

    I still don’t really dare touching any one of these…
    Does the hair come off or does the head come off when you spray it?
    (hair just sounds so much more fun than wig :P)

    • Robin says:

      Gosh. Have sprayed these from the tester, and can’t remember! I think it’s the head though.

    • Omega says:

      Actually, the perfume shoots out her mouth when one pulls the hair up!:)

      • Omega says:

        Nearly Exorcist like..not good.

  7. pyramus says:

    I should probably find those bottles creepy but I think they’re fun, and a perfect fit for what I presume is the early-teens target market.

    Now, the Anna Sui Dolly Girl bottles: those are super creepy to me.

  8. Merlin says:

    They actually look a little like ‘heathen’ idols, statuettes of the gods from some blasphemous tribe! lol

  9. jonr951 says:

    Ok yeah, I love me some Nicki. And I love me those Nicki bottles. I’m excited, and info’s finally out on Onika. ^_^

  10. jonr951 says:

    So yeah, don’t go looking for Onika when it makes it to the stores Robin, because it is just PEAR! Haha! You’ve been warned. ; )
