Candy floss (with a little burnt sugar) opening, merging into syrupy fuity-floralness, a small coconut interlude, finishing sweeeeeet. A concoction for the child woman. However, the times they are infantilizing the ubiquity of this stuff is scary. Could also be the low price point, of course.
Heat by Beyonce, 2010
Rated #7976 in Fragrances
I really love this scent; I think its a great offering for a celebrity scent. Yes it is quite sweet but not in a childish way. It is sweet and sophisticated. It is quite heady and musky to me and it lasts all day. Smellls classy for its status and also the cost. Well done Beyonce!
It seems to be that you'll either love this fragrance or hate it. Like most celebrity scents, Heat by Beyonce is somewhat generic, however pleasant. Although vanilla is presented well in this fragrance, the fruity notes tend to dominate. The peach and orange notes tend to be very sugary and synthetic, slightly headache-inducing when over-applied. I wouldn't say that this fragrance is particularly sexy or fiery as the name would suggest. It's one of those scents that wear well during the day or out at night without being too outstanding or offensive. I see many young girls liking this fragrance and being the most targeted consumers. I wouldn't have minded a little less sweetness here and perhaps some hint of spiciness, which in my opinion would have improved this fragrance greatly. Beyonce has a rather strong personality, a lot of sassyness and female power. I'm a little disappointed that her fragrance doesn't portray this. Heat, in my opinion, is too safe for me to wear.
its reeaally sweet when you first spray it. should've been called 'candy' instead of 'heat' --because it has none.
Seriously,every Tom Dick and Harry just has to have their own scent these days. I wouldn't mind if they smelt unique or memorable. I was told this was a top seller at Macy's .Sweet, musky ,generic - for people who don't want to think about what they smell like but want to pretend they will get to be Beyonce for a a few hours. I doubt she wears this herself.
Got A Sample To Test Out And The Packaging Is EXACTLY Like Bond No. 9's Bon Bons. Smells Like Candy, Nothing Evoking Heat To My Nose. Should Have Had Cinnamon As A Note In My Opinion.
Tried this, and although it is nice for a celebriscent, it is not groundbreaking. It is a thick floral with some vanilla buried in there. If you do not know your fragrances, this will pass as yet another good, feminine, me-too. Does better in the warmer temps, but is OK in the cool. For a not-from-a-serious-frag-house perfume, I say it is good, nothing worse than the standard Calvin Klein or Tommy Hilfiger fare.
