Review: Three words: modern, alluring and femininity. Estee Lauder lead the way in the world of fragrance, having launched their first scent over 50 years ago so it is no surprise that Modern Muse is fast becoming a favourite. I still recall my first introduction to Modern Muse, flicking through the pages of a glossy fashion magazine when suddenly there was Arizona Muse (yes, her surname is Muse) staring back at me with polished hair and makeup and a beautiful bottle complete with a bow. Shortly after, almost every glossy magazine I flicked through featured this same print advert and I had to know more. When I received Modern Muse, I could not wait to smell the scent I had imagined for what seemed like an eternity (it was only about 3 weeks!) and it was truly worth the anticipation. I am truly converted - Modern Muse will always see a place on my dresser for the rest of my life! It is true that as we grow older, our taste changes whether it be fashion, food, or scents and although I once preferred sweet and fruity scents I have grown up and my scent has evolved. Nowadays I prefer something floral, musky and fresh with a hint of warmth. I like scents to linger for longer and I can easily wear men's cologne. Modern Muse is perfect because its sophisticated scent lingers on the skin and in the air so others too tend to notice. Top Notes consist of mandarine and dewy petals. Middle Notes pay homage to Tuberose, Jasmine, Lily and Honeysuckle, whilst Base Notes are rich in Patchouli, Madagascan Vanilla, Amberwood and Musk. The multi-faceted fragrance is ideal for the multi-faceted woman like myself. Someone who doesn't take herself seriously, is a high-achiever, dignified and loves to spoil herself. Modern Muse is in my top 5 fragrances of all time and has truly stolen my heart.
