Modern Muse from Estée Lauder


I know I am a little late with this post, Modern Muse has been available for a couple of months now. It is the biggest launch from power house Estée Lauder in the past decade. It is a wonderfully fresh scent with lots of my favourite note, Jasmin, but there is also a beautifully spiced woody deepness to the scent. I think that this launch is a great move for Estée, until now most of their fragrance has been targeted at an older audience, but this is quite different! The fragrance has dual-impression structure, meaning that the two main accords are contrast each other.

  • Sparkling Jasmine Accord: This facet of the fragrance captures the creative energy and magnetic femininity of a modern woman. Exotic Mandarin and tempting Honeysuckle Nectar send a spark of energy through a youthful sensation of Dewy Petals. Two extractions of Jasmine Sambac, including one new to the perfumery palette, Jasmine Sambac China Absolute, bring luminous texture to the feminine bouquet of rich Tuberose Fleur and Fresh Lily.
  • Sleek Woods Accord: Her sleek style, strength and sensuality are expressed through this innovative blend of two Patchouli essences wrapped in the creaminess of Madagascar Vanilla, richAmber Wood and soft Musk – all of which craft an undeniably sensual finish.

The day that I was introduced to the fragrance they had a small bottle of each of the above scents, I was so temped to put the Jasmine one in my pocket!!


The packaging is so simple, it comes in a tall glass bottle that has soft rounded sides with a navy bow at the top of the bottle. Which was inspired by Estée Lauder’s first fragrance, Youth Dew, which launched in 1953.
