AMW Reports: I Caught the Beyoncé HEAT!

My nose is very sensitive, I can sniff the good (and the like a dog!  I am not surprised that I associate a lot of my memories with scent! 

I have a very good collection of fragrances!  I remember how I spent my first salary with my first Eau de Toilette --- True Love by Elizabeth Arden.  From then on, my collection grew up to this very moment and I have a special place for them in my room!  

When I got an invite from the people of Prestige to join them for a launch for Beyoncé 's first fragrance, I knew I had to make time!  And who could say "no" to the gorgeous Beyoncé ?  I may be a woman, but I do know how to appreciate "Women with Confidence"!

I expected the launch to be a small one, would you believe the surprise I got when I get to see the bird's eye view of the event?  It looks like a scene from a "hot" vampire movie!  Bright lights, black background and red flooring!  Definitely "hot and sexy"!

Beyoncé , as we all know, exudes empowerment!  She's got a style that blends sexy, chic and elegance!  Beyonce conquered not only on music, films and fashion, she has also been recognized for her measurable contributions to the global community with her humanitarian efforst.  Definitely a perfect role model!

A huge LCD screen shows the making of the television ad, the stunning Beyonce talks about her excitement for her first fragrance. 

The bubbly Andi Manzano (Andi 9 on Magic 89.9) hosted the event! 

The "Kitty Girls" sets the stage on fire by performing several hit songs from Beyoncé .  "Single Ladies", "Crazy in Love" and a lot more! 

Models roam around the area spritzing on the new HEAT by Beyoncé for us to take a sniff and enjoy the floral, fruity, woody perfume.  

The Star of the Night

"The fragrance opens with a radiant floral bouquet of magnolia, neroli and red vanilla orchid balanced with a kiss of luscious blush peach.  At its heart, almond macaroon, sweet honeysuckle nectar and creme de musk combine to create an exquisitely sensual experience.  Finally, warm and sexy notes of giant sequoia milkwood, tonka bean and amber linger to seduce the senses. "
The fragrance is presented in a very curvaceous bottle with a red gradient effect giving the impression of fire burning from within.  In my own interpretation, it's beauty, sexiness and passion from WITHIN!
At first sniff, its a bit too strong for my liking and I mentally took note that it does not even fit my personality!  I am more of the citrus and floral scent by the way!  But after several minutes, I found myself getting addicted sniffing on my wrist area!  It blends into my body chemistry quite well!  I have to add that the scent is long lasting!

The people from Prestige, Watson's and SM Mall of Asia together with Mr. Lito Atienza celebrates the launch with a toast!  Beyoncé Heat is officially available in all SM Department Stores nationwide!

Had photo op with Andi-9 and Kim after the event

Since we're all talking about RED!  I was on my way home when I passed by a nice Christmas display at SM Mall of Asia!  *sings* "All I want for you...!" (Ooops, that's a Britney song!)  Ok, tuning in Beyoncé Christmas song..."Silent night....Holy night..."

Merry Christmas!
Oooppss..not yet!  Got carried away!

Have a wonderful Thursday!  Have you seen this fragrance anywhere near you?

  3. Kim, sure! Grab it lang :) It was fun seeing you!

    Roxy, I know! I originally don't like it at first sniff, but afterwards, it just smells heavenly!

  7. What a lovely event. Looks like you had a great time. The scent sounds lovely too, would love to try it.

  8. How long does the scent last? Based on your description, HEAT smells lovely!

  9. Gio, give it a sniff...its great

    Denise, the scent lasts hmm...lets say after it was spritzed on me around 7:30pm, it was still there when I got home around 11pm! :) I took a shower after so I can't really tell!

  10. Hi Nikki, thanks! My mom and I grabbed a bottle this afternoon. :) But when the cashier beeped it in, it read P3,650 and the promo guy was like, no, it's P3,950 and changed the price tag and everything. We got it at P3,950. Was it because of the GWP?? hahaha

  11. Oh no Denise, the price range was given to us during the launch, they probably increased the price! :(! I can help you check ! :) BRB with answer :)

  12. Hi Again Denise, here's the response from the company:

    "The normal 100 mL costs Php3,650 but the Beyonce coffret is at Php 3,950 (that includes 100 mL bottle, body lotion and shower gel)"

    Hope the information helps :)
