Nicki Minaj will release her debut fragrance later this year

The singer has signed a fragrance licensing deal to produce and launch her first scent, due in department stores this autumn.

She said in a statement: "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."

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

So if you're a fan of Nicki... sorry, a Barbz.... then watch this space and expect to smell this scent very soon.
