This reminds me of Angel - definitely a gourmand frangrance. It starts off sweet and then dries down to a mysterious, musky, sensual scent - at least on me. I agree with another poster that the bottle was poorly designed. I think this fragrance is better suited to fall/winter so I think she's a little late or way early in debuting the product.
Boring, fruity floral done by soooooooooooo many others I think I could be sick. The scent is pleasant, but so un-original this is such a generic version that really it could be anyones guess as to which label/celebrity it belonged if you didnt already know, they could all have done it in theory.
If it was gifted to me I'd sure use it, but never would I purchase this, Beyonce missed that mark by miles on this and while it will almost certainly appeal to the general demographic I dont consider it nearly unique enough to add to my collection, I would pass it over for about a billion same smelling others any day of the week.
I don't understand the rating being so low. I really love this fragrance. It's warm, sweet, fresh, and (to me unique) all at the same time. I believe it's a really pretty smell. Woody, floral, sweet but not overly so. I like Beyonce but am not her biggest fan either. When I like something I just like it and am not biased. This is a really nice fragrance and I think it should be given a chance on the body's chemistry.
Edit: I was so wrong about this one. I take it all back :) It just too cheap smelling. After I tested it for a while I regreted buying it.
cotton candy lollipops berries warm creamy vanilla all in one!!! this just has to be a gourmand fragrance i just wanna eat my wrist i cant stop smelling it- this is my new favorite perfume its amazing!
the bottle is gorgeous too i definately recommend this cant wait for the gift set so i can buy the big bottle with the big lotion =) the lasting power is great too! well done beyonce =)
I had decided I'd love HEAT as I think Beyonce is amazing and everything she touches turns to gold, so it pains me to say that she's missed the mark this time.
I don't think HEAT is bad; It's just that it's not anywhere near original, so is therefore boring. HEAT has elements of Hypnotic Poison, Provocative Interlude, Black Star, Fancy and Halle, among others.
I couldn't seperate any of the floral notes that are listed; it was just a strong and sweet jumble, with a hint of peach.
After the overpowering start HEAT drys down into a creamy almond and amber blend, which - while not unique - was nice.
The lasting power is good and I neither love or hate the bottle. While I won't buy HEAT myself, I would wear it if it were given to me. Plus it wasn't sickly and it didn't give me a headache, so that's another lippie in HEAT's favour.
Scent notes: Vanilla-orchid, magnolia, neroli, peach, honeysuckle, almond, cream musk, sequoia wood, tonka and amber.
I smelled this in a magazine...It seemed like it would smell really nice..It's a really weird scent..Didn't like it at all.
I tried this perfume on when I went to Macy's and boy, is it strong and sweet!!! If it wasn't soooo strong and sweet it would be nice but even after letting it dry down, it was still very strong! Its like diabetes in a spray bottle!! Be careful wearing this because you can give people headaches with this perfume!!! I will NOT be buying this!!
I really wanted to like Heat because i'm a Beyonce fan and hoped she put some effort into her first venture into fragrance. However this was such a disappointment. The first impression of the packaging was very poor. The quality looked like something more suitable for Walmart or Walgreens, not Macys. The scent was like a lot of people said, nothing original and i found it kinda funky. Obviously she didn't put a lot of effort into this project at all.
Way to much for something so dull and unoriginal. I really wanted to luv Heat. The notes sounded great. I was expecting a warm vanilla woody scent but thats just not what Heat is. Heat is a fruity floral w/ some warmth to it. Its like peach hard candy. Nothing creative whatsoever. It smells cheap. It smells like no effort was put into it at all. It could easily be another cheap Paris Hilton perfume. I was expecting so much more from Beyonce. She said herself she took her time w/ it and made sure it was something really special that could last forever but sorry B, its just not. Its like lollipops and red hots put together. Candy, candy, and more candy. Its been done a million times b4. And done better a million times b4. Fantasy, With Love, Queen, Halle, Live, and almost every other celeb scent are way better then Heat. I even like SJP NYC way better then Heat and its just another strawberry scent. Its just a huge disappointment in my book. The bottles nice though. Maybe nxt time Beyonce. : (
I sprayed this on myself earlier today, and have been smelling myself, saying, "This smells so good, but just like something else I own." And then it hit me. It smells exactly like J.Lo's Sunkissed Glow. A good scent, but already done by someone else.
