Modern Muse le Rouge Eau de Parfum


Extroverted, glamorous, sophisticated. Modern Muse le Rouge from Estee Lauder from (£45) | available online

I love the Estee Lauder fragrances. From Bronze Goddess to Modern Muse, there is something very appealing about their light, easy to wear scents encased in a selection of beautiful bottles, worthy to adorn any vanity table. Last year I shared with you the launch of Estee Lauder’s Modern Muse Eau de Parfum which is a sparkling citrus scent spiked with Jasmine and softened with creamy vanilla, musk and rich Amberwood. It’s exotic, feminine and very pretty and definitely worth a sniff. However, if this sounds a little too sweet and girlie for you then the good news is that Estee Lauder have recently launched an updated version of this splendid scent – Modern Muse le Rouge which is a fruity, floral, oriental fragrance – still completely feminine but with a full, daring kick to it which makes it a little more robust and sexier than the original.

At the heart of this Eau de Parfum are the notes of Bulgarian rose, raspberry, blackcurrant and pink pepper. Saffron, Madagasgar vanilla, patchouli, vetiver, jasmine and magnolia also make a welcome appearance in this scent giving the whole fragrance a wonderful blend of rich roses, ripe fruit and velvety, creamy vanilla which all work perfectly together. I would say this fragrance is the perfect transitional scent as we creep into Winter as it feels warm, cosy and richly-spiced on the skin. It feels slightly more grown up than the original but still remains ageless and would definitely appeal to all age groups. If you love the idea of rich red roses and fruity accords, layered with a soft creamy base then I think this could be heading straight onto your Christmas list!
