Beyonce Heat Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Unique powerful scent, nice design, price, long lasting fragrance.
Disadvantages: Can be overpowering at first.
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.
Summary: Thanks for Reading :)
