GIRL. If there’s one thing Estee Lauder does better than well it’s the fragrant stuff. They’re scent-sational. I’ve been wearing them for most of my adult life — Pleasures, Sensuous, Private Collection, Bronze Goddess and Modern Muse.
They have so many light and easy-to-wear fragrances! They don’t give me headaches (which happens sometimes with heavier fragrances), don’t overpower the room, and whenever I wear an Estee Lauder scent, inevitably, someone will ask me or comment about it.
Estee Lauder recently came out with an updated version of their already marvelous Modern Muse. It’s called Modern Muse Le Rouge, and mmm! *sniffs wrist* — I can’t get enough of it.
Modern Muse Le Rouge is a fruity floral oriental — feminine, full and daring, but still approachable. In other words, it doesn’t aggressively get up in your grill.
Official fragrance notes include Bulgarian rose, rose centifolia firabs (a hybrid rose), raspberry, bourgeon de cassis (black currant bud), pink pepper, saffron, Madagascar vanilla, patchouli, vetiver, jasmine and magnolia.
Unofficial fragrance notes include an impeccably cut black suit worn with dainty jewelry, glossy red pedicures, a surprise delivery of roses to your front door, and strutting down the street in three-inch heels with all eyes on you. 🙂
The 1.7-oz. bottle here is $82, and you can find it now at Estee Lauder counters and online.
