L’eau Down: Estee Lauder Modern Muse Chic

Modern Muse Chic Review - Politics of Pretty

The fragrance: Estee Lauder Modern Muse Chic

In three words or less: Bold, creative and stylish.

The story: Estee Lauder introduced Modern Muse Eau de Parfum in 2013 and introduced a new addition to the Modern Muse family earlier this year. Clashing two distinctively different accords: vivid florals and striking ebony woods, Modern Muse Chic was born.

The notes: This is much stronger than the original. Both fragrances contain jasmine, tuberose, musk, patchouli, and vanilla. Chic infuses notes of davana, plum, lily, cashmere wood, agar wood, and labdanum.

The packaging: I think the studded bow speaks for itself. Modern Muse Chic is like the younger, edgier sister to Modern Muse. This is definitely something I like to show off on my fragrance tray.

My thoughts: Modern Muse has been my go-to fragrance for everyday-wear that’s sophisticated and ladylike. Now, I have a sexier, edgier fragrance for nights out on the town. Either fragrance makes for a great gift for your friend, sister, mother or daughter. Check out special limited edition gifting options here.
