Ya know, I don't mind admitting when I'm wrong...so in this case I don't know why it bothers me to have been so very wrong lol so, I now have a bottle of this within my large fragrant collection...and...I love it! OMG do I love this. It screams summer, and all things that are wonderful about summer. It reminds me of something escada would put out. So pretty!

It is a tad bit pungent so spray it sparingly.
This creamy and sugary fragrance would smell amazing when subtle.

And unlike most people, I am a proud Nicki Minaj fan so I simply had to have at least one of her perfumes.

The only celebrity fragrance worth my money! Warm, but still tropical and somewhat fresh. My younger sister wears this and I always used to steal a spray or two. I had to have my own! No regrets, except the slightly ugly bottle.

I really like this one but don't love it. It's a fruity, sugary sweet syrup kind of smell. Super sweet. It smells exactly like one of the Rue21 perfumes but I can't remember which one. I wanna say their signature one. I absolutely love the bottle!

I love, love, looooove this perfume!!!!! It is delicious, but not the kinda delicious you want to eat. It is sweet, but not oversweet. It is mostly fruity, but I smell a bit of flowers and a very very light spicy something that makes it just wonderful. If you like Bath & body work's Pink chiffon, you'll adore this for sure, they are very very similar in my opinion. It is a great perfume cause people around can smell you, but they won't have a heartache! You know, when something in the air smell so good and your nose is searching for it badly cause oh my God, it's awesome? Well, that's the feeling you get when you smell someone wearing this. It is fresh and cozy at the same time, perfect for every season I think. It smells more like summer than winter though, but it definitely uplifts your mood on cold winter days in Québec!! :)

I get a soft scent of pear and floral notes in this fragrance. This the first nicki Minaj fragrance I've owned and probably the only one I'll ever own. It's far from a bad fragrance but This the only Nicki perfume that I like and it's different from all of her other perfumes. This has a mild silage and longevity but it's was worth the price.

I deff have to back up the review a couple below mine with the "warm sugared pear" reference. This is a very simple scent, although very likeable and inoffensive.

I mostly smell the notes of pear, star fruit, and the sugar cane note.

This is my very first Nicki Minaj fragrance that I've owned, although I've smelled Pink Friday in stores before. I voted for this one with a "like" but I must say, it is a strong like and I've already gotten 2 compliments from people in the two times I've worn this.

Longevity is average, but on the low end of moderate lasting about 4 hours on my skin.

Sillage is the same. About average on me but on the lower end of average projecting about 2-3 feet and not very strongly. It's a very "moderate strength" scent. Not loud, while not being undetectable either. For this reason, Onika is a VERY good choice for the office. It's versatile, easily wearable no matter what month of the year it is, and will not offend anyone's senses.

Overall, I'm impressed. It certainly isn't in my top 10 fragrances, but I definitely like it. Even enough to recommend it.

Scent Itself - 7.5/10
Longevity - 4 hours
Projection - Average. 2-3 feet.

Overall Rating - 7.5/10

I may have to try more Nicki fragrances. :)

Also to note : This one is a definite safe blind buy whether it's for yourself or as a gift. Enjoy everyone and thumbs up Nicki!

Thank you Fragrantica reviewers!
Instead of Chanel, Dior or some other higher end fume? On Thanksgiving I decided to wear Onika. Why? Because it was described as a "butter bomb". Warm baked pear. Perfect combo for food I thought, where it won't be an unwelcome contrast. It will also keep me from giving an impression of being too snooty and be friendly instead. This reasoning and choice worked like a charm ,, and I was meeting my partner's family for the first time on a large scale in Summit, Utah. I didn't feel like I was wearing anything unadult or ridiculous. There is no group listing but Onika feels more gourmand than sweet floral fruity to me. I wore this successfully for a special moment meeting new people and enjoying good food. I smiled when I saw pears on the table cloth!

Quite similar to Pink Friday and Minajesty (like combination of both without the smell of plastic caramel and tonka bean), and I find it more pleasant than both - although I wish this includes red berries at top note as well (I love the fruity top note of Minajesty but hate the tonka bean smell shortly after). It's a soft and calm fragrance.

Lasting power is great! I sprayed on my arm at 9am before going to work and still could smell it faintly at 8pm!

The only downside of this fragrance is that it caused redness on my skin, probably allergic to certain ingredient used in this fragrance.

Edit: I sprayed on my pillow and surprisingly the mandarin smell comes out stronger than on skin!

I have work this many times this summer. I bought it for the crazy bottle but I really like it! I also have juicy Malibu as I see one person says it's the same but on me it's not. Malibu is so light I can barely smell it and aquatic (? Which sometimes I don't like). This on me is not aquatic. Its fun and fruity but not crazily so.

I'm not a Nicki minaj fan in any way, but saw MinnieMolly review this, then sampled it at a Kohl's store & was in love with the fresh, clean, delightful scent. Totally not what I was expecting. My hubby even complemented me, and a few people complemented me at my physical therapy class (had major open heart surgery last month). It does last a good 4-6 hours on me, and I even have a rollerball for my purse, projection is not bad. Though the bottle isn't really the most visually pleasing, but it's about the juice & I love it. Will repurchase when I run out.

Tried this today and was surprised that I enjoyed it. If I were to find this discounted I would def. buy! I smelled pineapple too as another poster mentioned...definitely smell star fruit, sugar and pear! I will be keeping my eyes out for this at my TJ Maxx and Marshalls hope it pops up!
Found it! Bought it! Love it! :)

First spray smells alot like pineapple, then it smells like a warmer version of Pink Friday, I really love it because I am a huge fan of Pink Friday, the longevity is about 2-3 hours unfortunately, but you get what you pay for, sooo... overall I would repurchase!

Marked down to ten bucks at Marshall's? I'll take it! I was so happy to spot this tucked way behind a bunch of other boxes. When this first came out, I smelled it and liked it quite a bit. At the time, I was purchasing something else, so I left this on the shelf and never bought it. A few days ago I saw it and I wasn't going to leave the store without it!

This smells so wonderful! It's a light and "happy" scent, but there's also a maturity to it. It's not a teeny-bopper scent to me. There is some juicy fruitiness as well as lovely florals; orchid and lily. I notice the Mandarin orange more than the pear, but it's not overwhelming. I think the white musk is what pulls it all together. After a while, it smells like clean skin laced with fruits and florals. So nice!

This projected about arm's length, maybe a little less, but the longevity is really nice! On me, I got about 7 hours or so. I'm really enjoying this and will mostly likely buy more when I'm out.

I just got this last night, so I am giving it it's first wearing today. I also have Pink Friday, and it is quite similar, but I think I prefer this. I actually like the quirky, kitschy bottles. I do wish her perfumes didn't all smell so similar, because I'd like to collect them all, but there just isn't enough variation between the scents. Still, I'm glad I got this, and my end up getting Minajesty.

I also have Meow by Katy Perry, and I don't find them to be similar, other than they are both sweet scents.

At first I think of Beyoncé's Heat line, (especially Wild Orchid), then I smell the creamy warmth of butterscotch and some rich tobacco. Funny, this comes off as gourmand, without most of the notes listed. At least to me. Someone mentioned butter. I totally agree! This perfume could be called Butterbomb.

Very short lasting no silage at all it smells like rubing alcohol or like pear vodka.i like these bottles so i am glade to own it. but im really not joking or trying to be mean when i say you could achive the same scent and longevity with a tropical vodka...but i do love both minajastys and maybe my bottle of onika was made by some really bad chemists..

the more I wear this the more I pick up pink Friday... it's basically pink Friday with the top notes AMPED UP and the caramel and sweet notes taken away... a sheer verison of pink Friday basically... honestly the only thing that's keeping them from being identical is the caramel note in pink Friday

I like this perfume. I definitely get a lot of the pear note upon the initial spray. Unfortunately, it doesn't last long and dries to a subtle fruity scent. I like this one more than Minajesty, although they are quite similar. I think the bottle is quite interesting too! I just wish the longevity was better.

It smells good. Nothing not to like about 'Onika'. I think it smells like Pink Friday but its not as good as pink friday. Pink Friday is the one that "smells like angels in the garden of perfection" (her words not mine)

To be completely honest here, I do like it but I don't think it's anything special. I get the pear and sweetness from the sugar but overall it's just another fruity and sweet celebrity scent, which seems to be a standard for celebrities to flock to when they want to release something.

The bottle design looks like the rest but I do love the black angled Bob cut it has even more than the long pink hair that Pink Friday has.

I was just thinking that considering this fragrance is named after her real name, she would make it something a bit more personal; something different that would standout from the others. All in all a nice fragrance but typical and just meh.

Nicki's fragrances are similar to one another but this one smells very "buttery" to me, i don't know how to explain it's very fruity but yet at the same time that sugar really stand outs making the fragrance smell sort of like caramelized pears with a hit of flowers. The body cream is very thick and dosen't smell quite like the fragrance layering would be a good idea too since the lasting power isn't that great. Overall this is my favourite bottle from her but not my favourite scent from her.

i have to admit... this fragrance is the bomb! omg i love it. this & minajesty exotic are my absolute favourites. i don't know if its just me but i get banana in this? when its on me i get strong banana for around 10 minutes then it mellows down & it becomes almost a different scent. its wonderfully put together & i can not get enough of it. also it smells nothing like her other scents which was good because for me pink friday & minajesty smelt to alike.

To me, Onika smells exactly like her other fragrances. It's fine, but I wouldn't buy it because it's just too similar to countless other options. Also, it doesn't last on me but an hour.
And to user "wowgirl" ... Was it really necessary to add to your review that anyone who doesn't like this fragrance "needs to kill yourself?" I wish there was a report feature, because you don't belong on this site but rather in a psych ward. No class, just like your idol.

I never cared enough about Nicki's perfumes to own any. Pink Friday, altho good, it goes bad in the bottle too soon and Minajesty has a masculine vibe which I don't like and the drydown smells like fried food on me lol. But Onika is beyond amazing. First time I tried it on and walked outside, the warm breeze transferred the aroma to my nose and I couldn't get my wrists off my face(I always KNOW if I like a perfume or not when I smell them outside). I love the smell of pears, I choose musk over vanilla and im a sucker for white flowers(osmanthus, water lily). This perfume is so nicely formulated it doesn't turn plastic on my skin and I can smell every bit of the flowers and fruits in it. I agree with the review below me, its a hot date perfume or special occasion. Im in love. I just don't get it why its so hard to find it.

Update: A lady chased me down to tell me "I was trying to figure out where is this beautiful smell coming from! its you! you smell great!". So projection must be good lol

The perfume identifies with Ms. Minaj's character to the T. This is the grown up version of ONIKA where we see all of those debuffs of wigs and alter egos come into one intelligent and extrememly flavorfull personality. This perfume will make anyone come closer to you and want to get to know you better.. The question is can you handle the attention.. I wear this when I get my favorite outfit on and know I will go all the way and be daring/ Yeah it can also be worn on any day of the week but I would advise against it because it belongs in that special category. :) XX

This is an incredibly versatile perfume. I've smelled the bottle at least 4 different times at Kohls and it's smelled different each time. First I thought it smelled gross, but the next time I smelled it I found it to be very decent and good for nighttime wear. It smelled juicier the next time I smelled it, but I still hadn't tested it on my skin. Fast forward to today. I received Minajesty Exotic in the mail and a rollerball of Onika came with it as a free gift. I tried it on my skin and it was initially very tropical, but as it dried it lost most of the delicious fruit I had smelled in the opening. What followed wasn't bad, though. After wearing it for about 10 minutes it smelled really unique and is appropriate to wear all year. Although, I think it's best for a summer night, personally. If it had stayed tropical I think it would have been too close to the Minajesty line. On my skin this perfume is the most unique one that she's made. Very different from the Pink Friday line. I kind of view this as a "wild card" perfume, so I wouldn't recommend it as a blind buy. Testing is important for a fragrance like this one.

Edit: I put some on my wrist 12 hours ago and washed my hands several times and I can still smell it. I'm definitely buying a bottle soon. It definitely agrees with my skin chemistry!

The Onika fragrance is my favourite, as it's definitely the most mature. I don't know why people are saying it's for teenagers and kids, because this one smells quite more mature to be honest! When I first smelled this, I could've sworn it was Pink Friday. But that's only for about 30 seconds as it vastly drys into a nice sweet caramel! The pear is very bold, but not overpowering. I also get sugarcane and mandarin orange, with the slightest taste of starfruit. The bottle and packaging? Well the box is more mature as well, with gold whiter and black making it look really nice and neat. The "O" symbol on the box is great too. And I absolutely LOVVE the bottle, this one especially. Even the bottle contains more maturity, as it's a natural looking one. It's also clear. Very clear. I can't emphasize that enough because it's so different. You can see the pump in this one and the dress, or corset or whatever you want to call it is something right out of Nicki Minaj's mature closet. The late 2014 - early 2015 Nicki Is so present here. It's a nice keepsake for any occasion. That's another thing. This fragrance isn't just for summer or fall, I feel like it's an all year round fragrance, for women mostly. I said mostly because it could pass as a unisex fragrance, because of the pear. Thanks for reading!!!

I love minajesty and pink friday, and onika is possibly the best one in addition to being my favorite of nicki minaj's three main fragrances in her fragrance line. Onika has the best longevity of the three scents and the pear and mandarin orange really stand out on my skin. I thought I could also make out some sort of berry smell, raspberry in particular, but was mistaken when I learned of Onika's actual notes.

This is a very similar fragrance to her original 'Pink Friday'. I love both and have had this since its release. I like the fact that it is a bit more fruity and light or as Nicki said on HSN 'Like angels dancing in the garden of perfection'. This fragrance was made with the new version of Nicki. The stripped back all natural Nicki. The Perfume is supposed to be inspired by her roots in Trinidad and Tobago. Her new album is the same. Her life stripped back and laid bare. This is the Nicki I love and will always love. Can't wait for any new perfumes to come and I can't wait to see her live in 2015. This gets a 9/10 from me and I love you Queen Nicki x

I smelled this at the store on Black Friday. When you first spray it, it kind of smells like Pink Friday, but that goes away real quick. Right away for me, it starts going into coconut and the dry down smells like fresh movie theater popcorn--IN A GOOD WAY. It's not too strong and the lasting power is very good. I cannot wait to buy it.

I don't think this smells anything like her other perfumes at all. This one, to me, is a lot warmer.

I think of Rihanna's Rebelle actually, it's very heavy on the coconut. I can't believe it's not listed on the notes because coconut is literally all I can smell. My initial reaction upon first spray was that it smells identical to a pina colada.

I like it, it's not loud or in your face. Just fresh, breezy, yet warm and pretty too.

I don't think it's going to be anyone's signature, but it's great for every day use, I'd purchase a bottle!

When this fragrance was first announced along with its notes I was terrified it was going to smell to much like her 1st fragrance Pink Friday as they share quite a few key notes such as: Pear, Star fruit, Lily and Caramel (or in this instance sugar cane). And worried I should have been! I received this fragrance in the mail in a swap with another fragrance collector and it smells very, very similar the only difference I can detect as of yet is that I feel the star fruit is enhanced giving it a fresher lighter vibe. The biggest difference though (still extremely mild) is that I feel that the pear has also been enhanced by placing it into the top instead of the bottom making it a bit heavier then her debut fragrance. But other these are the only 2 differences I can depicted at this time. I would sum it up by saying that this fragrance is pretty much just a Pink Friday 2.0 in my eyes, quite disappointed.

I wish Nicki's fragrances had more stay power. This really does smell great as with all her other perfumes but the scent fades so fast on them that I can't justify buying any more then a roller ball in her scents!
I even returned my minajesty exotic though it smelled amazing, it lasted maybe 1 hour!
Beautiful scents but worth half the price in my opinion

This perfume is absolutely gorgeous! behind Pink Friday and Minajesty this is her best fragrance. This is like a fresher juicier version of Katy Perry's Meow. i feel like i always talk about that one cause Beyoncé's Wild Orchid smelt quite similar to Meow, but Onika is what i wanted Meow to be; fruity, juicy, fresh and tropical flowers. Meow was hooked up on too much sweetness and vanilla but Onika is stunning.
The lasting power is quite good about 5-6 hours and it radiates within arms length. i wore my little sample for 1 day and i got at least 6 compliments from people on the tube and in the street. i will deffo buy a large bottle very soon. Nicki must be doing something right i love all her perfumes!

This is by far her best fragrance. I thought Minajesty would be her best one because of the Tonka, but something in this is just beautiful. It does have VERY similar notes to Pink Friday but they do have very obvious differences! This one doesn't have that cheap synthetic smell to it like PF, it's a lot fresher and more clean smelling. The pear in this is beautiful when you first spray it! Like the pear is gorgeous! The other fruits are there but it's still the pear! The dry down OMG the dry down, the dry down reminds me of Fancy Love by Jessica Simpson! It smells wonderfully creamy and sweet! Such a gorgeous fragrance! Can not wait to get it!

The bottle also is beautiful! This is by far her best bottle design! It looks nice, it feels and its just an all round great bottle design with a beautiful box to match!

Considering I dont like the rest of her fragrances with the exception of Minajesty, this one is really good! The lasting power on me was about 6 hours which is fantastic for the Nicki minaj range! Highly recommended for a sniff!

Can not wait to get this!

This perfume smells like NIcki MInaj's Pink Friday..... very similar... very nice. I wanted to be one of the first ones to own this fragrance!!!
I love wearing it. It stays close to the skin, and is quite soft. It is really soothing...and calming.
I would definitely repurchase this...maybe when it is less expensive. THis is best for scent -free offices where you get in trouble if you wear perfume....very light and airy. REALly love, love, love this!!!

I was as excited as everyone else that hasnt sniffed this out yet...this scent is nothing to write home about or big...it starts off fruity like a victoria secret or escada type scent...then after 20mins the nice blast is over and whats left is a bland soft fruity sweet generic drydown close to a teen scent from a drugstore perfume isle. I think the escada scents from yrs bk are better quality. This cant touch rockin rio by escada..by a long shot. This is weak.

How is it that after a handful of sickly sweet teeny bopper perfumes, she releases one that actually smells gorgeous? It reminds me of a summery tropical juice that you sip on while tanning at the beach (not that my skin allows me to tan). Surprisingly, I like this.

I own all of Nicki's fragrances and am a fan but I go into her and any other celebrity perfumes with my unbiased opinion. First off out of ALL of Nicki's 6 fragrances this is BY FAR my favorite. Pear is one of the first things you smell along with the Osmanthus but the pear is not over powering. The pear starts fading about 1 hr in. Osmanthus and Sugar Cane are prominent through most of the scent. This is my all time favorite fragrance from Nicki and my favorite fragrance probably ever because it isn't super fruity through the entire fragrance. The downfall, for some the life on this fragrance on me isn't that great maybe 4-5 hours, but the heavenly scent is well worth a reapply.

I decided to do another review. Now that I got the big bottle 3.4oz and I spray it on my neck I can smell most of the notes. The strongest notes in my opinion are in order: 1. Pear 2. Sugarcane 3. Osmanthus 4. Mandarin Orange 5. Cedar 6. Water Lily. Also I smell a little Star Fruit, but it's very light no where near how it smells in Pink Friday. I have to agree with others The longevity isn't that great. I get 2 to 3 hours. If I layer this with Minajesty Exotic I get a little longer. I have all of her fragrances including the special and deluxe edition of Pink Friday and I have to say Onika is my favorite.

Returned my whole set from this...everything had a cheap quality to it and I hate to eat my words...but its for teenagers and the quality is not their and this is like paying 60.00 for a bath n body mist. I'm getting my money back for ( a bottle of : dahlia divin modeled by alica keys)..I'm a grown woman...this is a trick for kids.
(i meant trick as in "I was tricked to the longevity n quality..dont take it wrong yall)

I got the full size bottle of Onika, and I have to say Nicki really did well with this one as well! My skin chemistry is very odd, so this doesn't smell like Pink Friday on my skin. I get a very sweet mandarin with a syrupy pear and tons of sugar. It almost smells like a mandarin and pear jelly jam on me! Very great and a lot of sillage, which I was surprised with! Great scent and will definitely be getting another full bottle upon release *sniffs arm* YUM!

I got this with my hsn set.....well..I like this but I like exotic better on my skin because this is more like pink Friday original but softer and sweeter but very weak and I get a coconut tone not pear on me ..overall still wearable but exotic has that kick of summer citrus and flowers which is divine!

For me this perfume is heaven like. I prefer Onika over Minajesty Exotic as Onika is lighter. I smell the sugarcane, pear, and osmanthus the most so far. I love it, it's a must have. I bought a big 3.4.oz bottle of this on Amazon they are sold out now. This is great for summer. It's summer in a bottle. I think she makes the best fragrances, and to me all of her fragrances are like sisters. I think Onika and Minajesty Exotic smell similar. I also think Onika is similar to Katy Perry's Meow. Overall I give this perfume a 10/10.

Pear LOVERS rejoice! Now you have Onika! Haha! It's definitely candied, but boy is this a PEAR fragrance if I ever knew one! It's sweet, fresh, and not heavy one bit. It's just pear, and there's really nothing else to say about it. Haha! Boy, Nicki sure does love her pear though huh? I like it, and it's been SCORCHING in my neck of the woods, so it's perfect. Definitely a summer/warm weather fragrance. ^_^

I received this along with my purchase of Minajesty Exotic off of hsn.com today. I prefer the Minajesty Exotic over this scent because I feel that this is too similar to Pink Friday. I'm glad that they included this as a roller ball to sample it. At least now I know that I won't be purchasing Onika since it's too similar to her first fragrance. Oh well, at any rate, I think it was a nice incentive to add this gwp with Minajesty Exotic.
