Blah-Blah Fruity Floral
I'm not a huge fan of Beyonce's fragrances, but I find this limited edition oddly fun and inviting. Pulse Summer Edition has a rather juicy and sweet approach, something that will more than likely appeal to teenagers, but also something that the older consumers may enjoy.

The opening is quite sugary and fruity on the skin, with orange candy, icy pears and a dash of pink pepper. The overall feeling is a tad tropical, and although it wears beautifully on warm, sunny days, it could work well during the cooler weather too.

Benzoin and orchid work well together in the heart, ramping up the sweetness and providing a slightly gourmand twist. Pulse Summer Edition is the kind of fragrance I'd probably wear out clubbing as it reminds me of all those sweet alcoholic beverages, namely daiquiris.

This composition is nothing out of the ordinary. In fact, you could draw comparisons between this fragrance and many other celebrity scents on the market. I'm refraining from giving this fragrance a bad review, because I honestly find myself enjoying it, even though I'd probably never buy myself a bottle.

It's nice to sometimes revert back to your youth, and wearing such a sweet fragrance like Pulse Summer Edition takes me back to the memories of those carefree days. In my opinion, this fragrance is more juvenile than grown-up.

The lasting power was actually quite impressive, and the sillage was thankfully moderate, so I didn't end up smelling too much like a walking lollipop. I am yet to test the original Pulse, so I cannot comment on their similarities or differences.
