Though I am familiar with several of the other fragrances from Beyonce for Coty Beauty, I had never tried her first scent of Heat that launched in 2010. Working with the house of Givaudan perfumers, Claude Dir and Olivier Gillotin, this is the wildly successful sexy, fruity-floral fragrance that started it all and later branched into new additions to the Heat line.

From the advertising campaign, I had expected a heavier oriental scent. However, I was totally surprised because this is a complex blend that does not bombard your senses with any overdose of woods and spice. Instead, you are slowly enticed through lighter notes of fruit and floral that eventually meets the intriguing warmth brewing in the base from flaming woods and amber.
Heat perfume opens with red vanilla-orchid, magnolia, neroli and peach that pleasantly dilutes that sweetness. A lushness of floral beauty surrounds you like stepping into an exotic garden and inhaling after summer rain has hit the ground.
Just as if the dew on those flowers and fruit have lifted, the heart is romantic with notes of honeysuckle and almond, gradually warming as well like the sun evaporating that moisture once the creamy musk emerges.
The kindling warmth inevitably catches fire in the base due to sequoia wood, tonka and amber. The effect is taunting smokiness that is demurely sexy at the same time.
Heat perfume is ladylike and but full of passion without jumping all over you. This feeling is what I loved most about it. The warmth is controlled in this fragrance that gives it that exceptional elegance to the sensuality it possesses. My suggestion is experience this scent from Beyonce Parfums because it compelling.
