Early this month, Estée Lauder unveiled Modern Muse, a new fragrance that is inspired by the intriguing duality of today’s woman and complements every aspect of her dynamic life.
A Modern 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.
Personally I love perfumes that have floral fragrance. I must say that I was a lil hesitant when they mentioned that it has two contrasting aspects: Sparkling Jasmine Accord and Sleek Woods Accord. I love the idea of having the jasmine fragrance but slightly dicey on the woody accord.
I was pretty much dumbfounded at how the mixture of the two contrasting ingredients can create such an exceptional scent. First off it is nice and saturated with scent. Also I love the fact that the jasmine and honey suckle has overtaken the essence more with a hint of woodsy, musky undertones. One may dabble it in the morning and even at night but ideally I prefer using it at night. All in all I’d say I love it but if you ask about the lasting power I’m a lil disappointed. Hopefully they’ll improve the staying power in time.
