On March 18, 2013, Nicki confirmed that she will put out a second fragrance along with a limited edition fragrance of Pink Friday. She confirmed that the fragrance will have a different name and bottle design than her first fragrance. She implied that it smelt like "pure lust". On July 29, Minaj revealed the name and the design of the fragrance, commenting that "smells like a passionate love affair. Mysterious and sexy. An unforgettable and hypnotizing scent." On September 10, Nicki announced on Twitter that Minajesty was a unisex fragrance.
She said that the first time she heard of "Minajesty" was when Perez Hilton called her that. Her fragrance team as well as herself said they loved the idea of the name.
