I’ve been wearing a light scented body oil for almost five years now, so I decided it was time to add a new scent to my perfume collection. I stopped into Nordstrom to try different scents and to find something I could wear throughout fall & winter. I was wanting something sweet but with hints of woody/musky notes, so when I tried on Modern Muse by Estée Lauder I knew it was the winner!

I’ve always been a fan of Estée Lauder beauty products, but had never tried any of their perfumes before, so I’m glad I ventured into their little corner of Nordstrom’s beauty section. Nordstrom is currently having a gift with purchase event when you buy any Estée Lauder item over $35. To see the two different $150 value gift set options, go here.

The combination of feminine hints of jasmine mixed with sleek woody notes is the perfect contrast. I love the blend of delicate floral notes with musky amber ones in Modern Muse – it’s sensual and strong. Even after wearing the perfume all day I love how it lingers on my skin after it fades. Modern Muse is also available in a body lotion and shower gel:


“Modern Muse is a true innovation in fragrance design, as complex and as fascinating as the woman who inspires it. The fragrance was inspired by the complexity of a modern woman, with the same dynamic contrasts as her life and personality, capturing her creative energy and magnetic femininity with multifaceted, sparkling floralcy and her sleek style, strength and sensuality with sleek woods.”

 Not only does it smell delicious, but the perfume also comes in the prettiest bottle that looks beautiful on my vanity. The sleek blush silhouette with the iconic bow from Estée Lauder’s first fragrance, Youth Dew, makes an appearance.

The scent you wear should capture the essence of your personality. Not only does your personal style have to do with the clothes that you wear, but also the scent you wear everyday! Smell is the most powerful and emotional of all the senses, so be sure to pick a memorable fragrance 🙂

If you’re looking for something a little more bold, try Modern Muse Le Rouge with hints of ripe fruit and rich roses. Shop the entire Modern Muse Collection here:
