When I Grow Up I Want To Be Beyoncé

I love Beyonce, I've uttered the above words more than once.I love her energy, songs, style and attitude and her husband is pretty fine too. I've seen Beyonce twice now and got to shake hands with the lady herself (squee) so when Beyonce's Midnight Heat popped through my door I was delighted! I also couldn't resist using the review to show you all some of my own pictures of Beyonce gigs, yes I was in the front row!

Midnight Heat is the sequel to the original Heat, the new scent is dark, sexy and very hot. It's the kind of scent that will linger on the pulse points through a hot night of hectic dancing.

I immediately gave it a spray and prepared to smell like Beyonce. The bottle is gorgeous, shaped in a curve to emphasise the feminine shape. It has a real vintage feel to it, heavy glass with an on trend ombré effect going from deep violet to sheer lilac.

My Seats at Beyonce's gig were fab!
The scent is instantly sweet, it reminded me of a Louisiana summer night. Warm, filled with the scents of all the flowers and fruits lingering in the humid night. It is sweet and warm and evokes a very heady image of a hot evening.

The lady herself
The top notes are all lovely and fruity, Dragonfruit, Starfruit, Armenian Plum. They give a fruit sweetness to the top of the fragrance and that initial waft.

The middle notes of the scent are much darker, it is from this that the heady aroma comes from. Purple Orchid, Black Tulip and Purple Peony all add together to create a sweetness and bold scent to the middle of the fragrance

The base notes bring heat and depth to the scent. Warm Amber, Patchouli and Sandalwood all scents that add layers to the bottom of the fragrance.

So what does it smell like when put together? It's very heady and warm. It's slightly sweeter than most scents I wear which is coming from the middle notes but I think anyone who is a fan of the original Heat will love it. It is definitely one to sniff out if you're a fan of sweet perfumes. It reminded me of Tom Ford's Black Orchid in many ways, if a little bit warmer.

So there you have it girls. Any Beyoncé fans out there?

Much Love.

I'm not usually into 'celeb' fragrances. They come across as a tad tacky considering there are so many of them but I absolutely adore Beyonce so this might have to be one I try!

I'm also a sucker for a nice bottle, and Oh my god Beyonce's thighs are unreal, seeing here from less than a foot away I can attest to the fact that she is way tinier than she looks and is completely gorgeous!

I'm a big fan of Beyonce, she's an amazing singer. Anyway, I'm not usually a fan of celebrity perfumes, but I love the original Heat. :)

Anyway, May's joint chief of staff, Fiona Hill, was so outraged by Morgan's fashion critique that she pettily disinvited that woman from 10 Downing Street, so there! The leather worm then turned further for Morgan when it was pointed out that her Mulberry handbag cost almost exactly the same as moncler outlet May's trousers. Morgan insisted the bag was a gift, because expensive stuff is totally fine as long as you don't pay for it, apparently. But this in itself raised several questions, not least, Who is giving Nicky Morgan £950 cheap polo ralph lauren? Someone in Loughborough market, no doubt, out of gratitude for her longstanding policy of being so condescendingly real to them. So the first thing to say, obviously, is, again, tchuh women! The sight of the second woman prime minister and the former secretary of state for education spatting away about toms outlet uk trousers and handbags seems pretty much the right way to end a year marked by the resurgence of misogyny in western politics. That's right, ladies: you keep behaving like the worst possible stereotypes of women, and don't let all that leather slow you down. That'll show em.
