I received this perfume as a gift. I am very, very particular about scents. Some can give me a horrible headache. I was skeptical but tried it and I had no headache, it smells absolutely wonderful! It's not too strong, perfect for every day. It's my new scent. Highly recommend this perfume.
I am very picky about perfumes. My mother purchased the Modern Muse (Eau De Parfum) recently and I loved the smell so she gave me this perfume as a gift. It is neither too intense nor too mild. It stays for a long time. The smell is soothing to my senses and I don't think I will ever get bored of it. I love this perfume and it is one of my most favorite perfumes.
I love the smell of the perfume its elegant and very classy. But the bottle is a disaster. I got the small travel bottle and it does not have the spray option but a pull out cap, because of which I lost all the perfume while I was traveling as the cap opened up in my toiletries bag and lo my entire bag was smelling awesome but I was down of a perfume. So if you need to buy the travel size then I would suggest to pass on this one.
I tried this perfum because of all the great reviews. I have to admit I was very disappointed in the scent. The smell is overwhelming and it did not smell pretty at all!! I scrubbed it off cause I could not stand the harsh musky smell.
I went to the dentist and had a back tooth pulled and was feeling down so I went to my local dept store and bought the gift pack of modern muse. ( my recovery system) I had smelled it in a magazine sample and I had to have it. The next week I bought this smaller bottle to keep in my purse. I also received several free samples of estee lauder products. Well, as you can tell I am sold! I will always buy from the website for now on. Thanx Estee!!
Since I love Estee Lauder and have Beautiful, Pleasures, Sensuous Nude and Pleasures Bloom I just had to have their new scent Modern Muse. From the very first time I smelled it to now I just love it. It is a very shy, quiet floral with a strong woodsy undertone. My husband loves it on me and I love it too. Estee Lauder has managed to create another classic. What do you expect from them? For the young and young at heart you can't go wrong with this one!
I love the scent. I discovered it with a free sample and really loved it - first time a sample made me buy a scent. I wear this perfume more regularly than I used to with others because I enjoy this scent so much. I read a lot of online reviews which were positive for the scent, but complained about the lasting power. I bought it anyway because I so enjoyed the scent, but have to say I too am very disappointed with its poor staying power. I really hope this will be improved as it will make me hesitate to purchase it again. That is the only thing stopping me from giving a 5 star rating.
