It definitely embodies Christina Aguilera’s message of self-assured authenticity. For me its perfect for day time, for picnics or even on lunch dates!

Beyonce Heat Wild Orchid


Beyoncé Heat Wild Orchid is probably my recommendation for the best orchid perfume. This one has coconut mixed with orchids which makes it last. It has a caribbean tropical feel to it, with notes of berries & magnolia. The orchid & the coconut go really well together since they grow in similar climates, which makes the perfume so balanced and complete. Some of the other perfumes in Beyonce’s range that has orchid in Pulse, Midnight Kiss!
