Fragrance| Estée Lauder Modern Muse

A nice early morning post for you all today.
I'm going to give you a quick review about one of my favourite fragrances the 
Estée Lauder Modern Muse Eau De Parfum.
I've had this for about 3 months and I honestly can not get enough of it.
This fell into my hands by accident and I blame the sales assistant because she did the usual Estée trick and sprayed the tissue paper that was covering my foundation (Estée Lauder Double Wear review here) and I was hooked!
First of all, it's like a love hate relationship with the packaging. I love the clear simplistic style of the body of the bottle and I love the bow elements but I don't know if it looks necessarily 'right' framing the square spray but I do think it looks really classy all the same. Well it IS Estée Lauder. The scent is a mixture between floral and sensual woods such as Suede Musk, Amber Wood and Honeysuckle Nectar with a hint of Vanilla and the contrasts between the two dominative notes makes the smell even more so amazing. The smell itself is meant to resemble the Modern Day woman, the contrast being between her life and personality and I definitely agree that it captures her creative energy and femininity as it does to whoever is wearing this. 
I have most definitely received the most comments on this fragrance then any other. I find the smell is actually distinctive and lasts a long time - perfect!
I would also honestly say, being Estée Lauder, this is perfect for all age types. 
I have no preference on wether to wear this in Summer or Winter as I feel the floral hints make it a perfect Summer fragrance where as the sensual woods have a heavy, Wintery musk that make it feel warm and feminine. 
Priced at £44 for the 30ml, I must say, I was expecting a lot worst and I happily shoved my card into the machine without a second thought.

Have you tried it? What did you think?
Tell me your favourite fragrance in the comments, I'm always on the hunt for something new!

  5. Oh my, I received a sample of this and as much as I like to try new fragrances, I never wear anything else but my signature (Chloe EDP). But when I tried this I loved it on me! I actually finished the sample (which has only happened once before) and I wanted more.

    This is such an elegant fragrance and it's just beautiful. The jasmine defines this for me. If I was to buy this I would probably use it for evenings to have something different to my signature :)

    You could gib Chloe EDP a try if you like rose based fragrances, it's my God send!
