Review: Beyonce Heat...

Friday, February 05, 2010


I remember the first time I smelled J.Lo Glow, Jennifer Lopez’ first fragrance. It was fire shut up in my bones. I didn’t immediately think, ‘This is how J. Lo smells!’. I thought, “I want the lotion to match, this is awesome!”

One day, I’ll have my own signature fragrance…I don’t have name for it or anything but instead of representing what I like and who I am, my fragrance will be something that capture your heart and fill your spirit. Celebrity fragrances are not based on that lately. Its all about them. Beyonce Heat is the perfect example of Beyonce. Let me explain…

Pros:

-the notes are diverse… the list reads everywhere from peach to orchid.

-the scent reminds you of nothing you have smelled before. She hit that nail on the head.

-The bottle is pretty, even though I wouldn’t do the graduated color up but reversed it and did the color going down. It would’ve look more refined that way. But she was going for the look of “Heat” *stares*

-The dry down is my favorite part…smells like clean, fresh soap.

Cons:

-The first spritz will knock you out. The top notes are super strong

-Too much comes out of one spritz. Overkill. She should look into that.

-After 15 minutes, Heat reminded me of oil sheen, like Dudley’s or Design Essentials… high end oil sheen **giggles**

Consensus:

There are so many levels to Heat, it’s not even funny. First, it was too much, then it smelled like hair salon, and finally I liked it. Beyonce, you think? She sometimes does that to me! Lol! If any, she nailed the essence of her. So, if you are a ‘Stan’ or a fan, scoop it up. It will fill your spirit. **looks around** Overall, I like it. I would like to see her do something not so kitschy and popular but more refined, classic, and romantic. Don’t act this is the only scent she’s going to do! Lol!
