Like most I am on the look out for a new fragrance or two to add to my perfume library for the autumn/winter months. Being someone that tends to favour fruity scents this can prove to be a little difficult as I don't really like anything too heavy but do crave a little more warmth and depth from such seasonal offerings. However I do have to say that Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Parfum gets a huge thumbs up from me and here's why.
"Be an Inspiration.
Experience the new fragrance that captures your style, your confidence, your creative spirit. An alluring contrast of sparkling florals and sleek, sensual woods."
Modern Muse has been carefully constructed blending two distinctively different yet equally dynamic accords to provide an intriguing, innovative dual impression. This unique dual-accord structure makes Modern Muse a true innovation in fragrance design. As complex and fascinating as the woman who inspires it. It is said that wearers of this fragrance can be split into two camps each gravitating more to one accord over the other - either the fruity/floral or the woody accord. A little more on the two accords below...
Sparkling Jasmine Accord: This has been added to capture the creative energy and magnetic femininity of a modern woman - a city slicker if you will. Jasmine Sambac with dewy Citrus Fruits combine to achieve a multi-faceted essence that is both floral and somewhat fruity.
Sleek Woods Accord: Sleek, style, strength and sensuality are some expressions thrown around when describing this unique treatment of two Patchouli essences which have been wrapped in the creaminess of Madagascar Vanilla, rich Amber Wood and soft Musk. It goes without saying that this is of course the woody accord.

If you are looking for a new sensual fragrance that is both warm, comforting not to mention long lasting and ultra feminine this is the way to go. Modern Muse is truly beautiful, floral without being powdery and woody without being masculine or overbearing. Estee Lauder may not be your usual point of reference for fragrance but if you don't try this out you truly are missing out.
