Recently, Estee Lauder launched the newest fragrance in the Modern Muse line. If the original Modern Muse is inspired by the duality of today’s woman, Estee Lauder Modern Muse Eau de Rouge captures the flirtatiously sexy side of a Modern Muse.


Who uses Modern Muse Eau de Rouge?

She has a soft, youthful attitude yet she’s still subtly sexy. She is the young at heart, a hopeless romantic ready to seize the moment whenever it pops up. She believes in passion and the pursuit of a kiss. She is lighthearted and flirty, yet confident and refined.

The Packaging

The bottle is similar to the original Modern Muse. Eau de Rouge is in the same strong, tall luxurious glass bottle with soft rounded sides, but has been updated with shades of pink. In Style: an eye-catching translucent pink, spray-through bow cap adorns the bottle. In attitude: a lighthearted, yet sensual romantic visual representation of the Modern Muse. Together, these details create a strong yet flirty visual statement that is an important part of the Modern Muse Eau de Rouge experience.

The Fragrance

Modern Muse Eau de Rouge has a floral rose scent, similar to the Le Rouge signature with a twist of luminescent clarity taking on the youthful flirtation of a springtime kiss. The ripened rose accord from Le Rouge is the base of departure for this spirited scent, transforming to a transparent dewy rose accord which moves the dramatic, rich fragrance to a vibrant and lighthearted springtime freshness that captures the Eau de Rouge Muse. The innovative “dual-impression” fragrance structure allows women to experience the fragrance through two contrasting accords:

  • DEWY ROSE ACCORD: This facet of the fragrance captures the vibrant and feminine side of the Eau de Rouge woman with an amplified juicy fruitiness, fresh floral bursts and a dewy vibrancy. The sumptuous sensuality of Rose Centifolia and delicate Rose Petal NP sparkles with Dewy Green Notes and crisp Bourgeon de Cassis – and is topped off with an edgy, modern Pink Pepper and effervescent Raspberry.
  • IRIDESCENT WOODS ACCORD: Her sensuous temptation and undeniable presence is expressed through an addictive blend of smooth Jasmine Absolute and Magnolia enhanced with the textural warmth of Vetiver and Clearwood. The depth of polished woods contrasts with the addition of Sheer Vanilla for a touch of sweet seduction and Ambrette Seeds for an intriguing yet refined muskiness.

Honestly, I’m not a fan of rose scent as I find it a bit mature and strong for my taste. Modern Muse Eau de Rouge is one of the exceptions since it’s light and youthful, great for both day and night use. If you’re wondering how it’s possible, you can try it yourself at Estee Lauder counters (Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-la, Rustan’s Alabang, Rustan’s Gateway, Rustan’s Cebu, Essenses Rockwell, and SM Mall of Asia).

And of course, who best suits to be the Global Brand Ambassador for Modern Muse Eau de Rouge? None other than… KENDALL JENNER!!! 😀
