The beauty of both of the Modern Muse fragrances is that they smell different on just about everyone; on me Estee Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Eau de Parfum is quite warm and almost vanilla based, yet on my sister this leans spicier and dare I say it almost fruity. I would deem Modern Muse Le Rouge to be a fairly strong, long wearing fragrance however it is ageless - not too mature nor young. Not too sweet yet not overwhelming. I can imagine this will appeal to many, especially those in the market for a new signature scent, Modern Muse Le Rouge demands attention.
I find fragrance reviews to be most helpful when there is some semblance of a comparison. In my opinion Estee Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Eau de Parfum is a dead ringer for Jimmy Choo Exotica Eau de Parfum - both share similar red fruit notes, spice composure and of course a creamy base. Others have compared this to Giorgio Armani Sì Eau de Parfum, noting that the latest Modern Muse addition has a stronger rose note shining through. Comparison fragrances aside this is one to check out if you are a fan of lightly spiced, warm rose and red fruit scents - I can't think of a more ideal fragrance companion for crisp, Autumn days.
