[REVIEW] – Beyoncé Midnight Heat

The festive season is about to kick-off. A lovely dress, jewelry and bag are all essentials for a night out on town, and so is the right perfume. Midnight Heat by Beyoncé, given to me by my boyfriend Chris for my birthday, makes for the perfect evening fragrance. Continue reading if you’re curious to find out about the scent this pretty purple bottle contains and what my opinion is.

Midnight Heat is Beyoncé’s fifth perfume and the third one within the ‘Heat’ line. The original Heat, which contains Amber and Musk, is a perfume that I would consider a ‘heavy’ scent. Heat was followed up by Heat Rush, which I have never smelled before. Midnight Heat was released in 2012.

The purple bottled fragrance starts off very fruity, especially compared to the original Heat, but is not overly sweet. The scent of plum, one of the top notes together with dragon fruit and star fruit is quite noticeable. The scent is a pleasant surprise for me as I was – keeping the original Heat in mind – expecting a much heavier scent.

However, the fruitiness of Midnight Heat doesn’t last very long. Soon the plum, dragon fruit and star fruit make space for a more floral scent. The heart of Midnight Heat is made up out of Purple Mokara Orchid, Queen of the Night Black Tullip (that makes my Dutch heart beat a little faster!) and  Purple Peony. The inspiration behind this parfum’s color is no longer a surprise.

It doesn’t take long for the warm and heavier base of the perfume to surface. Warm Amber, Patchouli and Sandalwood give Midnight Heat a strong base, making it – in my opinion – more of an evening scent. The name also suggests that this was the intension of the people behind the scent: a mysterious fruity perfume that turns into a spicy scent later in the night. Midnight Heat really is what it promises to be: a lovely evening perfume.

Midnight Heat is not an everyday perfume for me, but that was never what this scent was intended to be. It’s a perfume that I would put on for a night out or a special occasion. I’m usually not a fan of heavier scents, the original Heat for example is not my cup of tea at all, but the more floral Midnight Heat is just right for me as an evening parfum. If you’re looking for a fruity, floral perfume with a warm base Midnight Heat by Beyoncé might be just your thing.

I’m also really curious about the latest edition to the Heat family: Heat Wild Orchid, which was released this summer and contains notes like Pomegranate, Coconut Water and Honey Suckle (one of my favorite scents) and is packaged in a vibrant pink bottle.

    Ik heb dit parfum ook. Vind het een heerlijke geur voor ‘s avonds. Voor overdag vind ik hem iets te zwaar. Mooie foto’s heb je gemaakt!

    Ik vind de originele heat van Beyonce juist het lekkerst! Maar ik houd persoonlijk wel van sterke geuren, al vind ik deze ook heel lekker alleen die ruik ik niet zo snel meer. Mooie foto’s bij je artikel zeg en leuke blog heb je, ik volg je nu via bloglovin!

    • TheBeautySuitcase says:

      Ik ben meer van de Marc Jacobs geuren als Honey! Het klopt wel dat Midnight Heat iets sneller vergaat dan Heat, heb jij die Wild Orchid al geprobeerd? En wat leuk dat je mij volgt! Je hebt zelf ook echt een hele leuke blog!

    De eerste twee Heat parfums heb ik wel eens geroken in de winkel en die vond ik ook te heftig, maar Midnight Heat klinkt wel als een parfum dat ik zou kunnen waarderen! Overdag houd ik niet zo van zware parfums maar ‘s avonds vind ik het altijd wel goed kunnen 🙂

    • TheBeautySuitcase says:

      Ik ook! Ik heb de originele Heat ook, ooit eens cadeau gekregen maar vind hem inderdaad iets te heftig! Ik was dan ook positief verrast door Midnight Heat!
