Estee Lauder’s Newest Fragrance: Modern Muse!

Be An Inspiration

AModern Muse is strong and confident, enhanced by her own intrinsic femininity and individual style. She is the heroine of her own life, always following her own instinct. She 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.

Estée Lauder unveilsModern Muse,a new fragrance that isinspired by the intriguing duality of today’s woman and complements every aspect of her dynamic life. This fragrancecaptures the essence of aModern MusewithaLush Floral Woodyscent, a true statement in modern luxury that conveys confidence, style and creativity with a modern, youthful attitude.


I’ve been a fan ofEstée Lauderscents since high school when I used to wear my favorite scent at that time which wasPleasures. I was really excited to finally get my hands on their newest launch: Modern Muse – which is their first major launch in the last decade!!! The scent comes with a new concept in fragrance with a dual-composition of two accord’s one being sparkling jasmine (which symbolizes femininity) and sleek woods (representing strength). The first accord, accord of jasmine, blends exotic notes of mandarin, tuberose, fresh lily, honeysuckle, dewy petals, Sambac jasmine and Chinese Sambac jasmine absolute. The sleek woods accord combines two types of patchouli, Madagascar vanilla, amber wood and soft musk


“The“dual-impression”creative approach offers each woman the opportunity to connect with the fragrance in her own way. Some will focus on the sparkling floral elements of the fragrance, while others will view the warm, rich woodiness as the defining facet.

– Senior Vice President, Corporate Fragrance Development Worldwide, The Estee Lauder Companies.

“As a destination of art, creativity, beauty, light and inspiration, the Guggenheim was the perfect setting to visually express the concept ofModern Muse— the woman and the fragrance,” “We were able to capture theModern Muse‘s independent spirit and aura of confidence in a truly inspirational way.”

– Richard Ferretti, Senior Vice President, Global Creative Director, Estée Lauder.


Bottom Line

Modern muse is definitely a perfume that makes me feel feminine and confident. It smells heavenly on the skin and after a few hours becomes much softer towards a feminine woody scent. It’s a great classic scent which you can wear anytime of the day – I’ve worn it for a few meetings and when I’ve been out on busy work days and have received compliments. To me, a good fragrance is one where I keep smelling myself and two when I get compliments! I’d say if you’d like the scent to remain stronger wear it on your clothing and if you want the scent to become softer wear it on bare skin. Love the perfume, a great addition to my collection.


Suggested Retail Price:$148/ AED 544 for the 3.4oz / 100ml EDP, $112/ AED 411 for the 1.7oz / 50ml.

Availability: Modern Musewill be available at Estée Lauder counters beginning of March 2014.
