Ok, so, unfortunately I’m not the Muse in Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum. I wish I was but I’m not. Oh woe is me. However, Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum is still a fitting fragrance for a muse like myself….!
Modern Muse is actually all about powerful women. The strong ones, the confident ones, that one’s that embrace their individual styles and take on the world with strength. The Modern Muse is an independent spirit who possesses a natural magnetism that draws people in, inspires them with her smile, and speaks to them without saying a word. She is memorable, a force of creative energy, a true inspiration to others.
I’d like to think I inspire your beauty lemmings from time to time so allow me to feed those lemmings with the introduction of Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum.
Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum is a contrasting little fragrance that’s subtle at first but reveals layers of bolder contrasts as it sets. It’s a warm, rich blend that starts out life with a sparkle of jasmine accord and exotic mandarin. Softer floral notes of honeysuckle, hasmine, fresh lily, and tuberose fleur create a feminine floral back drop to this enticing fragrance. As the softer elements dry down woodsy notes of emerge including hints of two types of patchouli. I know what you’re thinking but don’t worry the patchouli adds richness and warmth without overwhelming the completed fragrance. Creamy vanilla, rich amber, and a soft delicate musk round the fragrance out and gives it that beautiful sensual edge.
It’s interesting how Estee Lauder was able to capture both the delicateness of floral notes and mix them with some harsher contrasting ones. Both elements create a contrasting fragrance that’s sensual and strong. The scent has a fairly good throw so a little goes a long way. On my skin it lingers for a solid five hours before fading to a beautifully buzzy back note on my skin which envelopes myself and anyone around me in a subtle fragrance.
The bottle’s design is a sleek blush pink with navy and gold accent and an iconic bow from Estee Lauder’s first fragrance, Youth Dew, makes an appearance.
I can see Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum turning into a timeless, classic fragrance for some. This is quite beautiful and well worth taking a peek at your next trip to your favorite Estee Lauder counter. You might just fall in love with it’s strength and beauty.
