Estée Lauder's new fragrance is inspired by the gloss of lacquered, red vinyl
Perfume inspiration can come from the unlikeliest of places. Estée Lauder's new Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss takes its cue from red vinyl

Red, lacquered vinyl is a good look on your manicure and your stilettos. But on your skin?Capturing the scent of the shiny material in a perfume bottle is no easy task, but Estée Lauder's latest fragrance is almost avant garde in its inspiration. Presenting a new facet of the Modern Muse range, in a shiny red bottle, the flaçon seems to transmit the idea of a bold, seductive femininity which is what the fragrance is about. We like that the bottle has a glamorous, late '70s vibe to it.
Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss
To create the juice, the brand worked on a dual, contrasting accord structure. The 'Red Gloss' accord is the olfactive equivalent of a high-shine red gloss. Notes include mandarin, fruity black cherry, Rose centifolia, carrot and pink pepper. The 'Red Vinyl' accord meanwhile is an attention-grabbing and luxurious blend of jasmine absolute, labdanum, saffron, bio vanillin and patchouli. Together these accords mingle to create a fruity, sensual, woody scent that's as sexy and self-assured as the reflective material it's named after.

From $88-$194. At Estée Lauder counters and stores
