Estée Lauder will be launching a new fragrance in the fall: Modern Muse - the company's first major women’s fragrance since 2003. WWD reported today that Modern Muse was designed by Firmenich’s Harry Fremont and built around two key accords: sparkling jasmine and sleek woods. The first accord combines exotic mandarin, tuberose, fresh lily, honeysuckle nectar, dewy petals, jasmine sambac, and jasmine sambac China absolute.
The same approach was with the sleek woods accord, which includes two different forms of patchouli, along with Madagascar vanilla, amber wood, and soft musk. The sparkling jasmine is intended to impart a feminine side to the strength of the woods. The collection includes the fragrance and accessory products and will begin to appear at counters in September.
