No, I don’t mean, not using a perfume….that would make you crinkle your nose at times. But as much as I love spritzing parfum, it’s very difficult to find something that’s you, or in this case, ‘ME’.
And I am invariably pissed off with brands who assign floral notes to the fairer sex, I mean, come on, add some vanilla beans, or cedarwood or musk. Even if I end up wearing these, I end up with a heavy head, or just using the EDP Made For Men. Ya! And I smell awesome.
So when word was that Estée Lauder was launching a perfume after a decade, I put a smile on my face, hope in my heart and strutted off the flagship store in New Delhi.
The task for Harry Freemont, Estée Lauder‘s noted perfume maker, to capture the essence of the modern woman: creative, bold, passionate and inspirational.
His inspiration: The Nine Muses, daughters of Greek God Zeus who were the Goddesses of music, poetry, history, dance.
At the store, the team made me get a taste of 9 different notes: the ones I remember were Madagascar Vanilla, Soft Musk, Rich Amber Wood and florals like Jasmine Sambac, Tuberose, Patchouli and Fresh Lily.
When I took the first whiff of the perfume, I was taken in by the almost-perfect mix of wooden-meets-floral notes. The first notes that hit me was a mix of vanilla and amber, and almost seconds later, the jasmine and lilies hint at freshness.
It’s been 2 weeks since then and I wear this perfume every day, in abundance. I love how it stays on for hours, its fragrance changing when it comes in contact with your skin in the morning till you come back after a day of work.
If buying a perfume is something on your list, I’d suggest you consider this one.
