Beyoncé aka. “Giselle Knowles” is not just a talented singer-songwriter, record producer, actress, dancer, choreographer, model, and video director, she also has an exceptional fragrance called “Beyoncé Heat,” which debuted last February (see the full, steamy, 60 second commercial on my blog)
While not all celebrity scents are successful, this one has become a personal favorite of mine!
Beyoncé Heat is a fruity floral with just a touch of spice and woods. The actual top notes are a floral bouquet of magnolia, neroli and red vanilla orchid balanced with a hint of luscious blush peach. The heart sounds delicious: almond macaroon, sweet honeysuckle nectar and crème de musk. The drydown notes are warm and sexy: giant sequoia milkwood, tonka bean and amber linger to seduce the senses. The fragrance, created by master perfumers Claude Dir and Olivier Gillotin, starts out with a burst of fruit, followed by flowers and some woods and spices. But it’s the fruit that you remember until drydown, when the notes mix with your personal body chemistry to personalize it into a fruity, woodsy blend. The final result is intense and sexy. I’d call it more of a a “date night” fragrance than something you’d wear to the supermarket (unless you wanted to set the stock clerk;s hearts on fire). As Beyoncé explained: “My fragrance is a unique expression of a woman’s powerful sensuality. The scent thrills and enthralls, drawing you in. At the same time, it is elegant and feminine with an air of mystery. I created this fragrance for self-assured women everywhere, for women who are not afraid to desire and to be desired.”
If you didn’t get Beyoncé Heat from someone special for the holidays, or if he didn’t “put a ring on it” (sorry, I couldn’t help myself) get your own — scent and ring — a very special, Beyoncé Heat,solid perfume ring! There’s nothing I like better than a huge, statement ring, and this one is a ruby-red knockout! The ring, which arrives in the cutest little, half-moon shaped, black leather coin purse with golden “B” charm, has a beautiful secret beneath the large, square, faceted, red glass jewel. Like fabled poison rings of the past, this ring’s jewel swivels to reveal not poison, but a positive potent potion nevertheless–a gratifyingly generous square of solid get Beyoncé Heat fragrance! Rub a tiny bit on wrists and other pulse points –you won’t need a lot to get a lot of attention!
Isn’t this just the “must-have” accessory to “ring” in the new year? I think so!
Now you can have a great piece of jewelry, a cute coin purse as a little extra, and have this gorgeous fragrance with you wherever you go. What ring could be better than that?
…actually….there is something….THE PRICE IS JUST $35.00! Get this limited edition before it sells out at Macy’s, Dillard’s and other fine stores nationwide
