BeyoncePulse Summer Edition found it’s way to me a few weeks back. I was excited to try this out as I have heard people comparing it to EAU MEGA by Viktor and Rolf. I thought a review might be in order. The scent is described as fresh, playful, optimistic and an upbeat summer time compliment to the original.
This is essentially a floral – fruity scent. It has fresh sparkling top notes and a creamy base.
*Top notes: Icy mandarin, pear and pink pepper
*The heart: Exotic and floral, featuring ginger orchid, jasmine and orange blossom
*The base: Creamy. Sapphire woods, musk and benzoin
How does it compare to the original?
It is similar to the original but lighter, less sweet and more refreshing. If you like the first you will like the second. It does stand alone, to my nose anyway. The dry down is fresh and fruitier than the original , less creamy maybe? What pops out at me most pear and pink pepper. It might be useful to point out that although it’s more refreshing than the first edition it’s not fresh in the ‘clean’ sense. It’ll be good for Summer evenings, lounging at a beach bar sipping a Margarita – or a virgin cocktail in my case :(
The packaging and bottle are definitely suited to a younger audience. I quite like the main body of the bottle but I would pass on the pink petal like lid. In fact I think I may just remove it.
If you like Viktor & Rolf or Thierry Muggler but are tight on cash or have a thing for celebrity fragrances then you may very well like this. It lacks the complexity of the former but it’s a cheaper fragrance by far!
I got 3-4 hours of strong scent then it dd down. I could still smell it on my skin for a few more hours though.
It is available as 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
What is your thoughts on celebrity fragrances? Have you tried this one?
