Fragrance reviews are silly, but sometimes, fragrance marketing is even sillier. What do “playful pastimes” and “nostalgia” really smell like? So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our own fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. This week, we’re testing out Minajesty by Nicki Minaj, due out September 2013.

Fragrance: Minajesty by Nicki Minaj

What Nicki Minaj thinks it smells like: “#Minajesty smells like a passionate love affair. Mysterious and sexy. An unforgettable and hypnotizing scent.”

What we think it smells like:

  • “Some sort of tropical fruit, like a jackfruit almost.”
  • “Vanilla, but also something toxic.”
  • “Sorbet, but an expensive one you get from a nice bodega. A mixed berry ginger peach.”
  • “A really fruity apertif.”
  • “Really sugary. Really sweet.”
  • “Brown sugar. Like a ’50s housewife who’s making a pie.”
  • “A little kid’s hand, but a sticky child who I don’t want to touch me. And like the ball pit of a Chuck E. Cheese.”
  • “Money.”
  • “Vanilla and blueberry.”
  • “Like someone opened a laundromat next to a flower shop.”
  • “Definitely floral and kind of sweet. Like the type of flower that’s used in baking. Not baking flour but like those macaron flowers.”
  • “Like in middle school when a bunch of girls would take out their perfumes and spray them around.”
  • “Jennifer Love Hewitt.”
  • “Philadelphia.”
  • “Like they made an alcoholic drink out of Cinnabon.”
  • “A Pier 1 store. Capable, intelligent.”
