Beyonce Heat was launched at the beginning of 2010 and it is the first one created by the American singer Beyonce Knowles. It was produced by the perfume house Coty, which also produces perfumes for many other celebrities like Kylie Minogue and Jennifer Lopez.. The packaging and the liquid of this perfume are red, as a symbol of passion and fire, whereas the bottle has an old-style design. The official notes are: orchid, vanilla, bergamot, magnolia, peach, honeysuckle, almonds, musk cream, sequoia wood, tonka beans and amber.
From the very opening, the fragrance shows a very sugar-sweet aroma, similar to the one in Britney Spears perfume Curious. After a couple of minutes, there is a change towards a sweet and fruity concentrated aroma, with a neutral style. After about thirty minutes, the aroma becomes creamier, with traces of musk, until it stabilizes on sweet and floral aroma, with an idea of gardenias, magnolias and peaches. The middle notes arrive after about 30 minutes, where it is still sweet but now vanilla is dominant on the rest of the notes. After three hours the aroma of vanilla is less intense, and leaves space to the florals, gardenia in particular. In the base notes, the sweetness is less intense, vanilla is almost completely gone, and there is a lukewarm note of musk, although very soft, which reminds of Paris Hilton perfume Heiress..
Beyonce Heat perfume is dominated by sweet fruity notes that covers most of the fragtance’s evolution, preventing other notes from developing. Notwithstanding, it is a very pleasant perfume for the summer, thanks to its very pleasant aroma. For a night use, it feels lukewarm, especially on informal occasions, like dinners and parties. On the romantic side, its aromatic structure won’t offer many attractive notes. Its trail is quite short, and it won’t be capable of keeping the attention alive in the counterpart. Ideally, it should be worn by women between 20 and 50 years of age.
