“I want women to feel sexy, strong, empowered and I want them to feel like they can conquer anything. When they walk into a room, I want them to feel like they can leave a lasting impression on everyone they walk past,” says superstar Beyoncé of her new perfume, Heat Rush. A fruity, floral fragrance that is luminous and vibrant with a dewy delicacy, it captures Beyoncé’s bright sensuality; it is young, fresh, and joyful. The opening notes of Heat Rush are sorbet, blood orange and Brazilian cherry, with a heart of yellow tiger orchid, mango blossom, and orange hibiscus. Teak wood, honey amber and Rio Sunset musk bring in the warm base notes.
Ever since their marriage in 2008, Beyonce, 29, and Jay-Z, 41, have been music’s power couple and at the end of August, Beyoncé broke a Twitter record (8 868 Tweets per second!) by announcing her pregnancy at the VMAs. After a performance of “Love on Top” she threw down her microphone, opened up her sparkling jacket, and rubbed her stomach revealing her baby bump to the world. The couple, who are usually so private about their personal lives had repeatedly ignored or denied any claims they were expecting, so it came as a joyful surprise to their fans that they chose to share the news in such a public way.
Earlier this year she told InStyle that she is now a woman, and “because I gave it all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children.” Well, congratulations Beyonce and Jay-Z on your wonderful news!
Beyoncé Heat Rush, eau de toilette, 50ml, retails for R450, and is available at selected Edgars, Red Square and Clicks stores, Dis-chem, and all leading stores.
