Estee Lauder Modern Muse is now in stores (+ review update)

I just learnt that Estee Lauder Modern Muse EDP was launched in stores today.

I wrote about the launch event and the fragrance here, and since then it has only grown on me. While I regularly test different fragrances for reviews, this is the one that I’m currently using almost daily – I’m just about half way through the bottle. I’m possibly a little obsessed with it – the creaminess from the jasmine combined with the citrus freshness is perfection in my book.

Estee Lauder Modern Muse – the bottle gives a nod to Youth Dew, Lauder’s first perfume that was launched in 1953. The pale pink fluid and navy blue bow carry through the theme of contrasts.
My beloved Estee Lauder Modern Muse

Modern Muse is available from all Estee Lauder counters as of today and I’m sure it will be in the online store soon although I don’t see it there yet. The 100ml bottle is R1175, and it’s R875 for 50ml.

I won’t lie, I’m a little sad that the rest of the world will now be able to wear my ‘special’ fragrance – for the past three months, I was one of very few in the country that had access to it. So I hope it does well, but not too well – I’d hate to smell it on too many other people. I’m selfish like that.
