Nicki Minaj to Release Her Own Perfume

Nicki MinajNicki Minaj will release her debut fragrance later this year.

The "Turn Me On" singer has signed a fragrance licensing deal with Give Back Brands LLC to produce and launch her first scent, due in department stores this fall.

"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 Barnz in mind," she said in a statement.

Nicki has made no secret of her desire to have her own scent, saying recently, "Hopefully I'll do one this year. I like scents that feel summery, but have a va-va-voom. I want to smell like a sexy and confident woman, not like candy."

Nicki - who is famed for her eccentric dress sense - is following in the footsteps of lots of celebrities who have released their own perfumes, including Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and Victoria Beckham.
