L’eau Down: Modern Muse Le Rouge

Modern Muse Le Rouge - Politics of Pretty

The scent: Modern Muse Le Rouge by Estee Lauder

The story: First came Modern Muse then came Modern Muse Chic. Now, there is Modern Muse Le Rouge, a scent that was made to “capture your glamour, sophistication, your bravado.”

The notes: Think rich roses awakened by ripe fruit, with a seductive velvet crème accord—it’s quite a contrast but that’s what makes it so intriguing.

In three words: “Extroverted, glamorous, sophisticated”

My thoughts: I was a fan of the original Modern Muse. At one point, it was my go-to fragrance for work or play. When Modern Muse Chic came out, I wasn’t thrilled but the scent was definitely intriguing—not something I would reach for every now and then. Estee Lauder has introduced one more sister to the family—Modern Muse Le Rouge, and it is equal parts sophisticated and glamorous. It has just the right amount of ‘zing’ and after a few minutes, it evolves in to a gentle, lingering scent. With the fall season right around the corner, I’m really excited to start wearing this scent. This might even be a contender for my wedding day.

Have you tried any of the Modern Muse fragrances? If so, which one is your favorite?
