Review: Modern Muse Le Rouge

If you’ve already loved the intense Modern Muse Chic version, you’re going to love the Le Rouge version even more! The difference between the Le Rouge version and the first two Modern Muse fragrances is that it’s much more softer, feminine, milkier, sweet yet fresh at the same time. This is one of the few fragrances that really speaks to me with every single accord. If I would create my own fragrance, it would smell exactly like this one!


”This woman inspires others through her unwavering confidence, glamour and sophistication. She lives her life to be noticed – and every ingredient in this scent was carefully selected to reflect that.”

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to have dinner with the vice president of Estee Lauder, Karyn Khoury. She talked us through the inspiration of this fragrance and the notes. The fragrance is inspired by women that are confident, sexy and stand out.



The Le Rouge version isn’t very dominating as the original Modern Muse and the Chic version, the scent is much lighter and milkier. The longevity lasted about 5 hours on me however, this varies on each person.
