I ordered this online for a very low cost (under $30) because it was discontinued at macys for some reason . I think this is a nice light scent that starts off with a mix of vanilla blossom & musk and after drying down you can smell the smokey cederwood mixed with the vanilla. it's really nice for winter because it's more of a woody scent. I probly wont buy it again though just because it's really light and doesnt last long. This reminds me of a lighter version of the Guess by marciano perfume... which i love!

I'm wearing this scent right now, dabbed from a decant. This isn't my first go-round with The Beat, but it certainly smells more interesting this time. It's quite sharp for a Burberry, and while I can't pick out any actual notes, there's something almost wintergreenish in the drydown. The construction of this scent is really what puzzles me: it starts off rather edgy and even somewhat dirty, but this is clearly built on a foundation of sugary, virginal musk. Usually I'd expect a scent to have a few innocent notes on top, with a dirtier base, but here that structure has been flipped on its head. The result is fairly interesting, and while I don't much like it, The Beat does deserve some credit for not smelling like absolutely everything else on the market.

I am totally in love with this scent.....how can you not love something that brings total strangers to your side asking what fragrance you are wearing?! It gets attention whenever I wear it. Very uptown fragrance that makes me feel like a million bucks when I wear it. It is my signature fragrance and fits me perfectly. And I even have a Burberry bag which goes along with my style of both scent and fashion. It is classic and beautiful and if you are looking for something a bit unique and gorgeous...The Beat is for you!

To me this scent is pretty, modern and feminine without being frilly. I can see myself wearing this everywhere and for pretty much every season. It's not at all too sweet which I was a it afraid of given my experience with some other more recent scents (Juicy Couture for example). I've worn it lightly on a few of these sweltering summer days and it was a perfect fit and I can imagine it smelling even better this fall. For me this is a more abstract scent as my nose can't quite pick out the notes, but I am no fragrance expert. My other favorites are Chanel Coco Mlle & Eau Premiere, Stella Stella, Kenzo Amour and Marc Jacobs Daisy for reference.

This is my signature scent. A divine woodsy fragrance with a fun, fresh metroplitan vibe. Plus the bottle is a-dorable!

I have been using this for about a month now. I love it! It is young and fresh. I do not worry about offending people when I wear this. Just a nice, light scent. I wore this to my daughter's wedding last month and felt very confident wearing it. Doesn't last as long as other perfumes but that is ok, I still love it.

This is my new love. To me this scent is a little fruity, in a delicious, grown-up way. It's like a refreshing iced tea. Never overpowering, it's a great fragrance.

Flowery but not too young and headache causing. I love it right now, especially the way it wears through the heat.

I like this fragrance. It's is quite clean, gentle, innocent smelling but with underlying sexiness. Seems subtle at first but actually it's such a fragrance which might get you noticed ;). I think it is a 'multiseasonal' scent.
EDIT. I reduced the rating because it doesnt really stay decent amount of tme on the skin and smell a little bit too masculine on me. Still, a good scent.
EDIT again. Also it reminded me of moschino's funny!. but i find moschino's fragrance more youthful, feminine and, well, more optimistic. The beat is more sophisticated though. I would choose funny for summer.
