==Beyonce Heat Perfume==
It seems to me that as soon as you have either no money or limited funds, everyday essentials such as face cream and perfumes will invariably run out. This was the case with me a few months back when I had literally used every last drop of fragrance I owned yet didn't have sufficient funds to get anything I deemed as any good. So this is how I came to buy this Beyonce Heat perfume spray.
So as per usual I bought this perfume from my local boots which meant I was able to use my discount card and get a little bit more off than the special offer that was already on this particular fragrance. This being the only real reason that I bought this particular bottle because if its price and it wasn't one I had tried out before although having a quick sniff in store I did think it was just okay.
The bottle design is a good one for use because the chunky base means that it stands well on my dressing table and doesn't get knocked over easily. It is made up of a deep red colour glass and u can't say I am particularly taken with the overall look of the bottle however the spray pump nozzle does work well.
The scent itself is okay but far from being my favourite. It is quite reflective of its name in the respect that the smell is rather warming and deep. The heavier base notes are the ones that are the most long lasting and noticeable throughout the day but that said by the end of the day it has all but vanished and will need reapplication.
The hardly noticeable top notes are slightly floral but these seem to soon be replaced with the more muskier undertones and the amber ingredients that make up the perfume The scents used seem to work okay together but as I said before this is not one of my favourite perfumes or even one I shall be buying again.
Although the perfume is aimed at the slightly younger market of those in their twenties I think as I approach my thirtieth year this is not a fragrance I want to be wearing Nd not one I would recommend to the more sophisticated of perfume wearers.
I think a fair score here would be a three out of five stars as it is okay for the price I paid and I feel the product itself was reflected in the cost. Not really recommended I'm afraid.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for taking the time to read
I love trying out new perfumes and fragrances, so when I heard the Beyonce 'Heat' fragrance was out I decided to try it out, and although at first I had reservations, I am now more than happy that I added this to my perfume collection.
The perfume sits in a red box with the perfume name clearly printed on the front. The bottle shape as shown in the above picture is very elegant and has uniqueness about it, the design is not very extravagant but its uniqueness and elegant feel is one of the things about it that grabbed my attention. The shape however makes it little harder to grip onto, I found I had to be careful when picking it up as it could easily slip out of grasp. The shape starts off as a thick wide stone like design at the bottom and gets thinner as the glass design moves up to the perfume lid. The Lid itself looks to me like a small lantern that has a small nozzle inside that is a golden colour and a thick golden base with the heat of the flame being represented by the red colour radiating through the glass at the bottom. The colour red fades from a radiant red colour at the bottom of the bottle into a white colour near the upper half of the bottle.
The fragrance's Top Notes include red vanilla orchid, magnolia and neroli, and blush peach.
In its Heart Notes there are almond macaroon, honeysuckle nectar and Crème de Musk.
The fragrance finishes with Base Notes with giant sequoia milkwood, Tonka bean and amber (taken from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_(perfume))
The scent is quite powerful and strong, which is different from the vast number of other feminine scented perfumes I have, which is in my opinion is a nice change. I did initially find the strong smell to be slightly overpowering at first, however after the initial sniff, it seemed to grow on me after a few sprays.
There is hint of sweetness in the smell which I personally think sits quite well behind the strong fruity and flowery scent. The scent of vanilla is also noticeable as well as the husky and peachy element, but the balance of these scents in opinion is just right, therefore not making any of the one smells too dominant or sickly.
The fragrance lasts for a nice three to four hours, which really illustrates the quality of the product, unlike other cheap fragrances that lose its smell after only an hour. I found that the smell after around two hours began to fade into a less powerful fragrance compared to when I first applied it, nonetheless the scent is still noticeable and pleasant.
Beyonce is a well known female singer who exudes a powerful image of a strong woman and this perfume definitely illustrates characteristics of her persona; being a powerful sexy and potent fragrance.
I personally think this is best worn at special occasions or during nightly events rather that on daily basis, purely due to the powerful alluring smell. It does smell a lot more expensive that it actually is, and can easily compete with the more expensive branded names on the market. I purchased mine from Boots at around £35 for a 50 ml sized bottle which in my opinion is quite a good price, especially with the advantage of the long lasting fragrance.
Overall I would definitely recommend this perfume, as it has nice strong floral fragrance that lasts for an impressive amount of time, and is reasonably well priced.
I received this perfume as a present last year and although I'm not much of a fan of celebrity perfumes I was really pleased as I'd heard positive things about it. Heat is Beyonce's first perfume. It was created in 2009 and released in 2010 and she has since released two additional fragrance; heat rush and midnight heat.
As I like the original Heat perfume so much I decided to have a sniff of the two follow-up fragrances in John Lewis and I ended up buying midnight heat. The original heat is by far my favourite though as it has quite a distinctive, original scent which is rare for a celebrity perfume in my opinion. It also smells very luxurious and it smells more expensive than it is. I have a 100ml bottle which retails at around £40.00 but it can easily be bought from online perfume retailers for half the price. 30ml and 50ml bottles are also available.
The perfume comes in an elegant bottle which has quite a simplistic design while still looking original and elegant, if that makes sense! The bottom of the bottle is quite an unusual shape - it is wide and curved and it looks a bit like a large gemstone in my opinion. The bottle gets thinner as it goes on and although the shape is quite simple I really like it and it stands out amongst my many other perfume bottles. Another thing that I like about the bottle is the colour - the glass is tinted red at the bottom and as it goes up the red starts getting lighter and the neck of the bottle is clear. The red reflects the name of the perfume and it adds a nice bit of detail to the bottle. The bottle has a clear, sqaure lid and the nozzle is golden with a thick golden base.
The scent is described as an alluring, feminine fragrance which is sensual, sexy and sophisticated. The manufacturers state that it excudes confidence, sexiness and energy. Beyonce said when speaking of her inspiration behind the fragrance: "I wanted something with an antique yet modern feeling. Even with my wardrobe, I always try to find things that have a little bit of something vintage, yet still timeless and classic. The bottle, I felt, was a great mixture of the two." The top notes feature red vanilla orchid, peach, magnolia and neroli. Almond macaroon, honeysuckle nectar and crème de musk are the heart notes and the base notes are milkwood, tonka bean and amber.
This is quite an unusual fragrance and I wasn't too keen at first but it is now one of my favourite perfumes! I am used to very sweet, feminine fragrances and this was a bit of a shock to the system as it's an incredibly powerful scent and quite manly with the initial few sprays. It still has a little sweetness to it though. It starts off quite floral, but it's not a sweet or gentle floral. The hint of peach adds just the right amount of sweetness and after five minutes or so of spraying it onto my skin the fruity scent developes nicely with the sweet and floral fragrances kicking in - vanilla is definitely one of the more prominent fragrances but the strong musky scent and tonka bean stops it from smelling sickly. I can't say that I ever really notice the smell of the honeysuckle nectar but all of the other notes can be smelt while wearing this. The amber isn't as strong as I'd of liked but it adds depth and keeps the perfume smelling strong despite the more prominent softer notes.
I find this a little too musky and floral for day to day wear but it's ideal for nights out and I do think that it's a sexy fragrance like the manufacturers claim. It's also very expensive smelling in my opinion and it is excellent value for money. The lasting power isn't great but it's still reasonable - I'd say it lasts for around four to five hours before it fades. I find that rather than gradually fading it is strong for a few hours and then it's almost undetectable which is quite strange but nevertheless, I really like this perfume and I recommend it.
Who doesn't love Beyonce. With her fierce attitude, amazing voice and power to women attitude I expected no less than a feminine fruity perfume with a heavy musk mingling in-between to turn up the heat. Beyonce provided that and more. The bottle is simple yet bold at the same time. It reminds me a lot of a decanter. The bottle to me suggests, that just like the liquid contained in a decanter, the liquid inside this bottle is made to take over your senses. The bright red colour just adds to the beauty of this bottle. The perfume opens with dark, husky florals as under tones to a beautiful peach smell. It's a little like bon bons. The first few minutes may be a little over powering but then the more subtle notes kick in due to the softer notes (red vanilla orchid, magnolia, neroli, blush peach, honeysuckle nectar, almond macaroon, crème de musk, sequoia milkwood, tonka bean and amber). Towards the end the perfume gets very musky and I can certainly smell the amber. The thing I love about this perfume is that the sweetness never dies down. The perfume like most products comes with matching body sprays and lotions and is avalible in 100 50 and 30 ml sizes.
I bought this perfume as it sounded really promising, despite the bland packaging. The perfume promises notes of vanilla, orchid and musky notes, which sounded like my perfect perfume. I purchased the huge 100ml bottle for £20 online (from a popular auction site). The box was damaged on arrival but I wasn't too fussed, as long as the perfume inside was okay. Plus I got a bargain (so I thought anyway).
Upon first spraying this perfume I could detect the above notes pretty well. Initially it smells very fresh and fruity, if not a little strong. I didn't mind this as I like scents that give a good first impression. After an hour or so the scent just fades away without a trace. I couldn't understand this as it does smell pretty strong to begin with. The final notes don't do the scent much justice as they are quite weak. I find myself topping this up quite often throughout the day so I guess even the 100ml bottle won't last me forever (boo!).
Would I recommend this perfume? No. I think people have only bought it because it's "made" by Beyonce but unfortunately it doesn't live up to the hype. It's not the nicest smelling perfume in the world, i've smelt better scents for a fiver from Next.
A shame that the notes aren't very long lasting and the bottle is really ugly! It'll get me by I suppose. Not bad for work.
To begin this review, I will say how much I love this perfume! I received this in a gift set from my mum at Christmas last year and have only finished it now. I love the bottles shape and actually it holds a lot of perfume.
This perfume is very feminine. The scent is very fruity and floral. I would say that it suits any woman and is really an ideal gift. The smell instantly smells amazing, not overpowering like some. The perfume lasts very long. At first, the smell is a very intense fruity smell and this lasts for about half a day and then the scent turns quite musky. This is very useful if you are constantly on the go and want an everyday day perfume.
This perfume is not ultra expensive like other celebrity perfumes and is definitely worth every penny! I will certainly be buying this bottle again!
received this perfume as a present a few months ago. I had seen it advertised almost everywhere but I hadn't read any reviews about it or heard anything about it from friends. So I knew it existed but apart from that I didn't really know what to expect, and didn't have a slightest clue what it was going to smell like.
As a celebrity Beyonce is obviously one of the more classier, powerful types of women celebrities out there. I'm not a massive fan but I do like her and I was all for a perfume that made me smell as good as she looks! I was a bit worried though, as I heard a rumour once that she is actually allergic to perfume! I'm not sure if thats true though!
The bottle this comes in a red box with black outlined edges as shown in the picture provided by ciao. The bottle is also shown in the picture, which I'm glad about as it would have been hard to describe that shape! I think the bottle design is OK but its not one of my favourite bottle designs. It does really reflect the name of the perfume though which I suppose is good. It isn't easy to spray the perfume with the bottle being that shape though, as you can lose your grip on it quite easily.
The fragrance is quite sweet and I would describe it as quite fruity. The top notes are depicted with red vanilla, orchid, magnolia, neroli and peach. The heart notes are honeysuckle, almond and musky cream, while the fragrance finishes with more woody note such as sequoia wood, tonka and amber. I really like the woody notes in this and can detect them really well after wearing the perfume for a while. I can smell this for a few hours before feeling like I need to apply it again, the staying power is overall pretty good though.
Overall I think this is a lovely fragrance, I would wear it mainly in the evenings rather than during the daytime as it is a bit special. I would definitely recommend this, I couldn't believe it either, when I checked the price of this perfume online. It is only £19.99 for a 50ml bottle! Normally perfumes are a lot more expensive than this and I would have thought this perfume is just as good as the more expensive perfumes that are out there. For this reason I will probably be buying another bottle of this when I run out. 0
I subscribed to Glamour magazine, and this was a free gift - I was really looking forward to receiving this as I thought it would be amazing when it arrived (obviously, as it's by Beyonce!!) However, when I first sprayed it I was disappointed... It is extremely subtle. I could barely smell it soon after I'd put it on unfortunately. It's a kind of "musky" scent, probably more attractive to an older lady than a younger one, but all the same I felt a little let down. I sprayed generously that night before going for some drinks with a few friends and held out my wrist for them to smell my new perfume - but they couldn't even smell it. Overall, a nice fragrance but just not strong enough. It's great if you want to blend in and want a subtle tone - but just not for me I'm afraid!
Whenever I hear that a celebrity has invented a fragrance I usually stay well clear of the actual product. I think they lack class, seem tacky and it is not something that I would feel proud to wear or have display in my bathroom, especially where 'stars' such as Jordan are concerned.
I first saw Beyonce's new perfume on the edge of one of the aisles in Boots last year and the advert looked so tempting I couldn't help but to test it and then the next thing you know I'm out of the till buying it, smelling delicious and with my principles thrown soundly out of the window. In my defence though, I don't think you could ever put Jordan and Beyonce in the same category.
Heat is the first fragrance to be created by the singer Beyonce and the advert portrayed this perfectly with the sexy singer looking smouldering in red with the byline, 'Catch the Fever.' The television advert had Beyonce walking through flames and I imagined this fragrance was going to be overly spicy like Britney Spear's Hidden Fantasy but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that my guess had been completely wrong.
The perfume is designed for the fiery, sexy and sophisticated women who is powerful, goes after what she wants and invariably get it too. It focuses on finding the strength from within, enjoying the sensuality of life and flirty provocation. Mix all that in with an atmosphere of passion and intensity and you've got yourself a fragrance that the wallflowers will want to stay away from.
The top notes of this fragrance are like taking a walk through a luscious forest with a mixture of sweet and fruity aromas, dusted with delicate petals. As well as the bitter sweet scent of the Neroli which is the blossom of the Orange tree, there is a succulent and juicy aroma of Peach. Accompanying these ingredients is the gentle scent of the Carribbean Magnolia and the sweet creamy mystery of the Red Vanilla Orchid.
At the heart of this fragrance lies a heavy musky which gives this fragrance the feeling of depth and heat. Mixed into the middle of the fragrance is the sweet Honeysuckle and the subtle addition of Almonds which work together to create a strong body to this perfume.
At the bottom of the fragrance lies the rich aroma of Amber which adds an extra touch of Musk. The addition of Tonka Bean gives a very welcome cinnamon and vanilla essence to the fragrance while the Sequoia Wood gives an added depth and heat to the perfume.
Packaging & Price
The fragrance comes enclosed within a vintage style bottle that I don't mind putting on display. It is made out glass and changes in colour as it progresses, ending in red to signify fire. The bottle is thin at top and then increases in size and it looks to me almost like the waist and hips of a curvy women.
The fragrance will cost you around £25 for 50ml and both larger and smaller bottles are available. It can be bought from most large department stores such as Boots, from perfume stores and also from plenty of online websites. The price seems to vary greatly so it's a good idea to shop around.
This fragrance goes through a series of changes as you wear it. By the time I had left Boots, the tester that I had sprayed on my wrist smelt completely different to when I had first sprayed it. I was blown away by the sweetness at the initial application. I love all things sweet and this was like syrup, vanilla and sweets all mixed up into one delicious concoction with some juicy fruit thrown in for good measure.
Once this sweetness subsides, a weird aroma kicks in that I can only describe as the smell that you experience when you have left something hot on. It literally smells like wood burning, mixed in with musk so it definitely deserves the title heat. It is a very unusual fragrance indeed. If you don't like sugary fragrances then you'll want to stay well away as I imagine it could get very sicky, especially in addition to the burning musk.
It is a strong fragrance and you won't want to overdo the application for the sake of both you and those around you. That is easier said than done, as the spritz comes out at some force so you may need to spritz the air and walk into it so that it's more toned down. That being said, the fragrance doesn't last overly long so a reapplication may be needed at some point. Because this fragrance is so heavy and noticeable, I think it's better suited to night time wear rather than for the day time.
All in all, this is a sweet and sugary fragrance with darker, heated undertones. It won't be to everyone's taste and it's likely to evoke strong feelings in you, whether it will be love or hate will depend on how you feel about smelling like Syrup on warm apple pie. It's strong and noticeable, and although it hasn't completely converted me, I am now willing to give celebrity fragrances a try.
I love getting perfume samples, I would have spent a small fortune over the years buying ones I thought I would like then hating them. My latest samples included Beyonce Heat.
This is the first perfume by singer Beyonce and was introduced in February 2010. As mine is only a sample I've only got a little glass tube but the bottle that the perfume is sold in actually reminds me of something that we used to use in chemistry in school. Its very wide at the bottom and tapers in to a long neck. The lid is clear allowing you to see the gold spray nozzle. The bottle and packaging are all mostly red and gold and the box although quite simple is very stylish. I assume the red colour scheme is to complement the name of the fragrance.
The notes in Beyonce Heat are:-
Top Notes-- Peach, magnolia, red vanilla. neroli and orchid
Heart Notes-- almond macaroon, creme de musk, nectar and honeysuckle
Base Notes--Tonka bean, amber and sequoia milkwood.
When sprayed Heat is instantly recognisable as mainly floral. The fragrance is sweet and delicate. I can not identify the individual notes but I definitely like what I'm smelling. After a few minuets a more spicy fragrance creeps though. The floral elements have totally vanished leaving a deeper smelling perfume. I must admit I'm not very good at identifying individual notes and for the rest of the time I was wearing Heat it was a deep warm spicy almost oriental fragrance. Its quite heady and to be honest not at all what I was expecting from Beyonce.
I found the staying power of this was good, it easily lasts an evening and I could still actually smell it faintly in my hair the next day so if you were to choose it as a daytime fragrance it would easily last all day, although for me its definitely an evening perfume
In my opinion Beyonce Heat would suit anyone apart from young teenagers. I would love a full bottle of this to wear on a night out.
Heat is sold in most department stores and on line shops. In Superdrug the current prices are 50ml £27.99 and 30ml £21.99. However its certainly worth looking online at www.cheapsmells.com because the prices are cheaper.
Overall I would recommend Heat by Beyonce, it was a total surprise to me but a very pleasant one.
I received this perfume from my Mum as a birthday present last week.
I have never smelt it before nor ever mentioned that i would like to, to my Mum. I have seen the advert on TV and thought i would like to try it as i am a fan of Beyonce's and she is hot!!
When i first smelt it on my birthday i thought it was a beautiful sweet smell. With some perfumes i find the smell doesn't last long when worn but with this one i can smell it all day on myself. Its not too strong and over powering, its just right. My boyfriend loves it too which is a bonus!
I will definately be buyng more when i run out! The bottle is also very sexy and i think the price is very reasonable compared to most perfumes which are so expensive most people can't afford them.
Buy this perfume for a reasonable price but an expensive fragrant!
We all know Beyonce Knowles for her music and like all stars they get offers left, right and centre. Most celebrities today have a perfume out and one thing I like most is they are usually cheap! Heat is Beyonce's first perfume and from my experience a very good one!
This I found in boots on offer for £9.99, it came with a 30ml edt, shower gel and body lotion what a bargain! I bought one for my friends and members of my family and was so pleased that I went back to get myself one but they completely sold out! Luckily my brother in law bought me just the 30ml edt.
This fragrance is a meduim, warm scent and would probably suit teenagers to late thirtys from my experience of working in a perfume shop for six years this would be best suited.
It is a fruity, floral and woody fragrance that is irresistible to wear and to my husband! It is extremely feminine and has a feminine power to it.
The ingrediants are:
red vanilla orchid
You can get a 30ml for £23.50, 50ml for £29.62 I believe the shower gel and body lotion is only part of a gift set.
At first this fragrance seems very sweet and very fruity but as soon as it warms and melts into the skin it smells divine. I always get compliments so it must be good! This perfume would probably last around 12 hours and is better suited for a day fragrance.
You can buy this pretty much everywhere superdrug, boots, most pharmacys even tescos.
I hope you have enjoyed this and has been of some use :)
Today, more and more artists also have their own scent on the market. Beyonce now has a fragrance called Heat!
Beyonce Giselle Knowles was born on September 4, 1981 and is an American singer, actress, songwriter and fashion designer. She is the wife of rapper Jay-Z. For years she was the lead singer of Destiny's Child, but chose at some point to pursuit a solo career, which is certainly not without success!
The fragrance is called Heat and has the slogan 'Catch the Fever' which sounded very promising. According to the description it will make your skin glow and make you feel sexy, powerful and seductive than ever. The colour red for the bottle and the perfume was chosen by Beyonce. Red makes her think of passion and fire, irresistibly radiant and sexy. The fragrance has a scent pyramid that looks like this:
Top: neroli, peach, magnolia and red vanilla orchid.
Heart: musk, honey and almond.
Base: amber, tonka bean and sequoia.
When you look at the ingredients it says sweet to me, but is also a spicy scent. It's quite a nice smell, although I find it a little too overwhelming the first half hour. Then the smell gets somewhat milder and it also smells nicer. After about five hours, I notice that the scent intensity decreases and is suddenly gone too. If you want to enjoy this fragrance the whole day you will have to spray again but personally I would choose this scent for the evening and then you have probably sufficient for five hours.
The fragrance comes in a red bottle where as the bottom is wide and then gets narrow upwards. It reminds me of the shape of a glass flask. It has a gold neck with a clear cap. A nice bottle which I think really suits the scent.
I find that the scent is too overpowering in the beginning and I normally do like sweet scents. Luckily it settles down and becomes a much more pleasant scent, but still strong. I think it's more a evening smell. Do I feel sexier when wearing this fragrance? A little bit but I mostly I feel confident about smelling nice so that's a big plus.
Going down my birthday present list is another perfume product, one I'm shocked that I actually liked! This one was a gift from my sister; she knows I don't follow the celebrity trends so I did wonder why she got this set for me. But all in all I'm very glad she did.
Beyonce Heat Eau De Parfum:
'Heat is an alluring, feminine fragrance featuring rare sensual flowers created for the new modern woman'
I'm sure many of you have heard of the singer and actress Beyonce Knowles; however her music as talented as she is, is just not my taste of music being a metal lass myself. So when I opened this I assumed that I wouldn't like this fragrance, but I sure was wrong.
Heat is the first fragrance from Beyonce with the tag line 'Catch a Fever' certainly is a big hit for me, knowing that this is her first fragrance product makes me wonder will she bring anymore out? Well if she does I will certainly be giving it a go hoping it will be just as nice as this one.
Heat first hit the market in February of this year (2010) I had no idea it had been out so long and was inspired by her tour. Unlike some celebrate products Beyonce was very much hands on with this product even down to the detail of the bottle in an antique looking glass and hints of her mother's collection of antique flacons and in her favourite colour red.
Top Notes - red vanilla orchid, magnolia, neroli and blush peach
Middle Notes - honeysuckle nectar, almond macaroon and crème de musk
Base Notes - giant sequoia milkwood, tonka bean and amber.
Personally for me I find the orchid, musk and amber sticks out most when I smell this fragrance which is great for me as I love amber hints and orchids. When I first sprayed this parfum I found it warming and sweet, not over powering when I first applied.
I find it rather sexy feeling too, like you can be a little cheeky when wearing it! Warming, sensual and fun what more could you want. I would wear this day and night I think it's a perfect all rounder. Another thing I love about this perfume is that as it mellows out on your skin you can smell the different notes floating around.
I adore the bottle and it's now sitting proudly among my perfume collection, the bottle is absolutely eye catching and it certainly looks antique just how Beyonce wanted it to come across. I think when looking at it in person it come across much prettier than in the photo above; with its golden tones followed down the bottle in deep red.
Sadly this is were the fragrance shall minus one star, this parfum lasts for a good two hours on your skin but after that I find it fades fast and after four hours would need another application to stay topped up. You can buy the smaller bottles for your handbag if you wish. But I do like a perfume that has good staying power so I can spray on the morning then jobs done!
However if your lucky enough to receive a gift set for Christmas it will come with the body lotion and shower gel, which will keep the scent lasting longer. But if no one surprises you with one go get one for yourself you're worth it remember!
Eau De Parfum
Gold Sparkling Body Lotion
Price and Availability:
30ml from £23.00
50ml from £29.00
Gift Set from £23.00 which contains 30ml Eau De Parfum and shower gels and body lotion.
My gift set was purchased from Boots and for £23.00 with the shower gel and body lotion is great value for money. A little goes along way so this set will last you for a long time.
You can also purchase this from online stores such as -
Plus it is also available in most chemists and supermarkets so it's easily accessible.
I couldn't be happier my sister purchased this for my birthday and I wouldn't hesitate buying this again when I have run out; but with all the perfumes I've had for my birthday it maybe awhile! I love the way I feel when wearing the perfume even my partner likes it!
If like me your not a Beyonce fan I would definitely recommend you give this a try I was pleasantly surprised so you maybe too. I don't think this is just a young perfume I think it will suit a good age range, my mom will be 54 Christmas day and she loves this too.
Four out of five stars from me
Thanks for reading :o)
I do not like celebrity fragrances as they usually feel 'cheap' and the scents are too teenager-y for me but 'Heat' by Beyonce is different. Usually celebrity perfumes are very safe and do not have a 'personality' to them. It feels that most do not have the actual celebrities' input and are very generic.
The bottle is nicely designed and has a touch of subtle glamour to it. The glass is tinted red at the bottom and turns clear. It gives off a fiery appearance and definitely represents the 'Heat'. The bottle has nice curves and the idea of it is very simple - it is not overly designed or complicated. The name is engraved in the gold bit of the bottle. The only thing which lets the whole design down is the plastic cap. It feels and looks cheap and poorly made.
It contains notes of orchid, magnolia, peach, honeysuckle nectar and red vanilla. It's quite a sugary and sweet fragrance.
Unlike most celebrity perfumes, you can tell Beyonce had a big say in what she wants the perfume to be like. It's all the things Beyonce is - sexy, fiery, seductive, glamorous and sexy. It doesn't feel cheap or tasteless. The lasting power is medium. Nothing spectacular but lasts for about 4 to 5 hours without re-applying. Since I like my perfume to be a bit more intense I always re-apply a few times.
A negative is that the 50ml bottle will not last you very long at all. I've only used it a few times and already have just 25ml left. Since I like very strong and intense scents I need to spray a lot of it on me which means that it goes quite quickly.
I bought this perfume in local department store for £30 for 50ml with a free make up bag. The price is reasonable for the perfume. It is not as cheap as other celebrity fragrances but then again I would say it doesn't feel like one.
At the end of the day it's a celeb fragrance. Which means that it is not very original or of a good quality compared to designer fragrances but if you compare it to the likes of Britney Spears or Paris Hilton perfumes it is a better designed and packaged scent which feels a bit more personal and elegant. It's good for teenagers but also can appeal to young adults.
+ Nicely designed bottle
+ Looks nice
+ Value for money
- Doesn't last very long
- Medium staying power
- Have to re-apply
- Not strong enough
