Scentsational: Beyonce Heat Ultimate Elixir

31 Jul

Following the success of her debut fragrance, Heat, singer Beyonce Knowles will launch her second scent, Heat Ultimate Elixir, later this year. The new perfume, which launches September 20, will have similar notes as the original with spicy floral red vanilla orchid, Osmanthus petals, cedarwood, amber, vanilla and Tonka bean. The chanteuse says the new scent captures her private side. Does that mean this new fragrance evokes less Sasha Fierce and more Mrs. Sean Carter?

The singer says of the inspiration for her perfume:

“And as a very young girl, hearing her footsteps…her stilettos click, click, clicking on the hardwood floor and she wore a beautiful fragrance and she would walk past me and it would just stay in the room. It left a warm feeling every time I thought about her scent.

“I think about the icons that I respect and they all have their own fragrance so I thought it was time for me to have my own.”

Beyoncé to launch first fragrance "Heat"

29 Dec

Beyoncé is no longer a triple threat as she as fragrance designer to her resume which includes a very successful singing career, a clothing line and an acting career. The perfume, dubbed “Heat” for the explosively hot tours the chanteuse has put on in recent years, launches in February but that hasn’t stopped fans from complimenting her on her creation.

“I’ve been working on it for a while now. I was on tour for a year, and I have meet-and-greets with fans. I’ve never in my life gotten so many compliments. Coty has their own testing, but that was my testing! The fans loved it. They were like, ‘I love that, I’m getting that, why isn’t it out right now? I need it!” says Beyoncé.

On the name:
“A lot of my performances have had fire involved, so we thought ‘Heat.’ Also, red is one of my favorite colors, as is gold.”

On the bottle:
“I wanted something with an antique yet modern feeling,” she said. “Even with my wardrobe, I always try to find things that have a little bit of something vintage, yet still timeless and classic.”

Heat, a collaboration with Coty Beauty, will be available at specialty stores like Macy’s and will retail between $39 and $59. With top notes of red vanilla orchid, magnolia, neroli and blush peach, those who flock towards fruity scents will likely be instant fans of “Heat.” The eaux de parfum will come in three sizes, as well as sparkling body lotion.
