This month Beyoncé launches her second fragrance, Heat Rush, inspired by the warmth and sunsets of Brazil. Heat Rush is a tropical fruity floral (surprise!) and it contains Beyoncé’s favorite flower, the yellow tiger orchid.
Notes listed include passion fruit sorbet, blood orange, Brazilian cherry, yellow tiger orchid, mango blossom, orange hibiscus, teak wood, honey amber, and Rio sunset musk (seriously).
I find this an interesting launch following Rihanna’s first fragrance, Reb’l Fleur, a tropical fruity floral inspired by Barbados. But, it’s also February and it is a good time to start launching tropical, beach “escape the last traces of winter” types of fragrance. It’s 30°, there’s freezing fog and snow, and I could go for something warm and upbeat right now. Maybe I’m a fan of Rio sunset musk and I don’t even know it. 😉
The 1.7 EDT of Heat Rush retails for $49 and is available at Macy’s.
