Beyonce "Pulse"

Yes, yet another celebrity perfume to review. What can I say? I love my celebrity perfumes, I can't say why, but I do. It's not even that I am necessary a fan of the said celeb. I even like some of KK's perfumes!

Description- "The fragrance opens with top notes of pear blossom, frozen bergamot and accord of Blue Curacao liqueur. The heart features Bluebird orchid, for the first time used in a fragrance. There are also notes of delicate peony and intensive midnight blooming jasmine. The base is warm, sensual and irresistible, made with Madagascar vanilla, musk and precious woods.

Let me start off by saying that I am not a fan of the bottle. Yeah, it's different and very recognizable, but it is so impractical. It's rather top heavy, with a small base, so I am forever knocking it over. Annoying!

Now, with that rant over I will get back to the perfume. At first spray, I get bombarded with a sweet citrus scent. Not a bad thing for me because I love citrus fragrances. However, during drydown it quickly fades into the base notes. 

Oh, I love a combination of vanilla, musk and woods, I find it can be such a sensual mix that really appeals to me. Unfortunately, this perfume misses the mark. Yes it's there, but only when I sniff where I have sprayed.

More silage and I would have loved this perfume. I only bought it, because I thought it was lovely when I tested it. 

I will continue to use this bottle up, because it does make for a nice casual perfume, but I have not been won over by "Pulse".


  1. So you've declared "pulse- not present" ha ha! Shame! I know what you mean about top heavy bottles!

    1. Hahaha, totally pulse not present! :D
