Estée Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Eau de Parfum

This exquisite fragrance from Estee Lauder is both youthful and classic at the same time. I'm in my mid 50's, and feel it's a scent I can wear as easily as my daughter can, it truly has a broad appeal to all ages. It is one of my favourite Estee Lauder fragrances.
I prefer this to it's predecessor, Modern Muse, I feel it has much more sparkle & vibrancy. Even the bottle design, with it's classic style & vibrant red cap is more visually appealing.
I am a sucker for most Rose dominant fragrances, and this one definitely fits my criteria in a major way. While Rose notes are prominent, it is the Fruit notes (Berries & Currants) that lighten the fragrance and give it vibrancy. The combination is blended seamlessly, I love how this perfume joyfully opens with these delicious, sparkling notes.
The powdery musk based base notes are also a favourite, this perfume lasts well, and lingers for hours. Being an Eau De Parfum, I find I don't need to use much, and it lasts well into my work day. I feel it is both office friendly and sexy enough to wear on a night out. Very versatile!
If you love Rose based scents and are looking for something a little different, I highly recommend trying this gorgeous fragrance. Very highly recommended.

Modern Muse La Rouge juice can be found inside a funky and modern bottle. I like the touch of red on top of the spray as it makes it clear this fragrance is meant to be very feminine and maybe girly too. I must say I like Le Rouge much more than I like the original Modern Muse. And in my opinion Le Rouge is the scent that is and will be liked by many. It is a lovely marriage of fruity head notes and more powdery patchouli heart base. The first impression is of mix berries (raspberries, blackberries) and currants ( red and black). Next we feel rose and well-executed red pepper notes that seem to be standing out in that fragrance. Later on patchouli notes make an appearance leading us to the powdery musky base.
I am impressed how easy and pleasant is to wear this fragrance. It's fruity and sweet, but not overly sweet. To me it's sparkling and light. A touch of rose makes it very girly and feminine. I can imagine wearing this fragrance to work but it is also suitable for every day. Makes a rainy day smell more of summer.
Modern Muse La Rouge smells a bit like a high end lipstick, and reminds me of Armani Si ( but is not as Sweet) so I believe this fragrance is a lovely alternative for Si lovers. It really smells delicious, elegant and sexy too, so it's worth trying.
