    Default Smelled Beyonce Heat

    Smelled Beyonce Heat a couple of days ago at Macy's.

    Not too bad at all for a designer celebuscent... it starts out fruity, but not too sweet, and dries down to a warm spicy amber/woods. (I only spritzed it on a card, but the SAs said that it's real nice on skin.)

    Anyone else seen it?

    The NY Times reports on Beyonce's debut of Heat in NYC...

    ...Beyoncé acknowledged that this has been a big week from her — at Sunday’s Grammys, she picked up six awards, the most a female artist has ever garnered in one year. And you can bet she was wearing her new signature scent. “My husband was like, ‘You got six Grammys, and you smell good!’ and I was like, ‘It’s Heat!’ ”...

    I have it on right now...just a little spritz from visiting the Macy's counter. First of all, the bottle is very difficult to hold, very sharp edges. Definitely, not comfortable in the hand; best to put it down & depress the atomizer top.

    The inspiration is evident in the neroli/tonka notes, that was nice but nothing original fragrance wise. HEAT is sweet, fruit/floral with a woody dry down. Period. It's okay, if you don't already own a fruity floral but the bottle is a huge deal breaker for me. I wouldn't use it because it's difficult & awkward.

    It hasn't reached Australian shores yet but from what I've heard around the place, this smells very similar to Queen by Queen Latifah.

    I see what you mean. It does resemble a candlestick. That you spray. WTF?

    Interesting takes on the juice packin' heat...doesn't sound unique, but one of those scents which could blend in the crowd.

    I love Heat's bottle, but QbyQL is the better scent. They are indeed similar.
    What do insomniac perfumers do to fall asleep? They count chypres!

    I tried it and found it so sweet I was sure my pancreas would explode if I took another sniff...
