 Estee Lauder Modern Muse

Estee Lauder, who has been a pioneer in the beauty industry since 1946, has launched a new fragrance named Modern Muse that was created by Master Perfumer, Harry Fremont, who boasts a thirty year background in perfumery. He used the highest quality ingredients and has stated that his inspiration for this fragrance was his perception of the modern woman, whom he describes as “more authentic than ever, more fascinating, and yes, more complex.” I agree wholeheartedly with his description.

Mr. Fremont worked side by side with Estee Lauder, from concept to creation, in order to create this delight to the olfactory senses. They included the lush, floral notes of Jasmine Sambac China Absolute, combined with the woodiness from a blend of Patchouli Coeur and Patchouli Cryst to invent a fragrance that is so unique that it has the ability to be interpreted differently by each and every woman who wears it. Some women may smell more of the floral components, while others may pick up on the woody aspects.

My own personal fragrance of choice is a citrus blend, so I was extremely delighted to try something out of my comfort zone. My opinion is that Modern Muse is extremely pleasant to the senses, and, because it is an Eau de Parfum, it will not dissipate quickly like so many colognes do. My method of application is to spritz the scent into the air and then walk through it, so that I don’t over saturate myself with scent.

Treat yourself and those around you to this contemporary fragrance created for the chic and unique women that we aspire to be!

Modern Muse is available in 3 sizes. The 1 oz. size is $ 58.00; the 1.7 oz. size is $ 78.00, and the 3.4 oz. size is $ 98.00. Visit Nordstrom or Macy’s today to purchase this sublime scent.
