Beyonce’s Heat is a blend of perfume classics like neroli, magnolia and honeysuckle, plus sweeter, newer scents like almond macaroon, peach, and the ultra exotic-sounding crème de musk. Curious as to why such a feminine and sultry fragrance has such a hot name? “A lot of my performances have had fire involved, so we thought, ‘Heat!’” she says. In fact Beyonce wore it on her recent world tour and asked her fans if they liked it. Heat is available in a 1.7 oz eau de parfum ($49) and 3.5 fl oz eau de parfum ($59), and you can layer the fragrance with the 6.7 fl oz body lotion ($24). Find it exclusively at Macy’s and macys.com.
Chloe has launched Chloe Fleur: a trio of exotic, oriental florals – Eau de Fleurs in Neroli, Lavande, and Capucine. Neroli is a woodsy herbal blend of clary sage, rosemary, and neroli layered over peony and white musk. Lavande mixes lavender and tea with sweetly scented violet and iris flowers, and Capucine blends the spicy scents of juniper berry and bergamot with softer florals like rose, jasmine, and lily of the valley.
