This September Estée Lauder is set to launch its newest fragrance – Modern Muse, a glamorous scent with notes of jasmine and woods.
The first accord combines a mix of mandarin, tuberose, fresh lily, honeysuckle nectar, dewy petals, jasmine sambac and jasmine sambac China absolute. Two different forms of jasmine are used to create a layered effect that helps the fragrance last longer, kind of like when you use fragrance matching bath wash and lotions. The second woody accord features a mix of patchouli, Madagascar vanilla, amber wood and soft musk.
Modern Muse will retail for $58 (1 oz.), $78 (1.7 oz.), and $98 (3.4 oz.). The matching body lotion and shower gel will launch in October.
An Estée Lauder fragrance has been long over due. Their last major fragrance launch was back in 2003, when they debuted Beyond Paradise.

What better way to show your sweetheart how much you love them than with a gift of beauty. This year a whole bunch of brands launched Valentine’s love inspired gifts ranging from eye shadow palettes to fragrance sets. Here are my top picks:
Currently one of the most popular fragrances, this is sure to put a smile on her face! Features notes of bergamot, tea, freesia, jasmine, orange blossom, orchid, rose and patchouli. Set includes: Flowerbomb Bomblicious Body Crème (1.3 oz.), Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum Spray (1.7 oz.), Flowerbomb Bomblicious Shower Gel (1.7 oz.).
Smashbox got it right with this palette. First of all – it’s just so pretty to look at! The neutral colors blend together so effortlessly and these eyeshadow glide on so smoothly and evenly.
This dual sculpting blush add the perfect touch of color for the ultimate romantic makeup look. It’s designed to work well with all skin colors – Coral Effect adds a pop of bright color and Urban Ballet helps soften it so it looks radiant and natural.
This set offer a sheer tint of color for lips and cheeks. Use them separately or blend them together for a customize look. Set includes: Saint Pinky Nude Lipstick, a romantic natural pink shade (.12 oz.), Oxymoron Honest Politician Lip Gloss, a natural shade (.28 oz.), Butterfly Ball Lipstick in Smitten, a sheer shade with a hint of turquoise – that make teeth appear whiter (.134 oz.).
The perfect gift box filled with Valentine’s Day inspired goodies. The set includes: Vanilla Cream Topping Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath (4 oz.), Vanilla Cream Topping Body Lotion (2 oz.), Cherry On Top High Gloss High Flavor Lip Shine (.5 oz.)
A little something for him:
The man in you life deserves some V-Day gift giving love too – it’s not all about the ladies you know! But in all honesty, this gift pleases both. Top notes of invigorating Italian lemon and mandarin orange alongside crushed green leaves, fresh lavender and a defiant punch of pink pepper. The set includes: Gucci Guilty Eau de Toilette (3 oz.), Gucci GuiltyDeodorant Stick (2.5 oz.), Gucci Guilty On The Go Spray (.25 oz.).

Give the gift of beauty to your loved ones this holiday season. Whether they’re into beauty or not, I’m sure these gift ideas will win them over. Some of these also make great stocking stuffers – Happy Holidays!
Whoever came up with this idea is a genius! I love giving these as a gift because it never disappoints. This set comes filled with 12 sample sized fragrances from various designers like Juicy Couture, Versace, Givenchy, and Prada. After sampling each one, they can choose their favorite and redeem a full size bottle at the store. Sephora also sells a sample set for men too.
I got this for my boyfriend for his birthday and he loved it and so did I. This cologne is a blend of bergamot, lavender and crisp apple for a fresh and powerful experience. Set includes a 1.0 oz. cologne spray & 1.7oz. shower gel.
This ultimate beauty kit comes dressed up as a box of fancy chocolates. This limited edition holiday collection features six palettes for eyes, lips, and cheeks. Just like a box of chocolates, this set is filled with rich shades of browns and shimmering nudes. HSN also has a similar set with four palettes for $40.
I’m always trying to find ways to get my boyfriend to start a skincare routine. If your guy likes to pamper himself – then this is the gift for him! It’s filled with all the essentials he needs like shave cream, face wash and moisturizer – plus a few extra items.
This year give the gift of gorgeous skin. This gift set features a 3 oz. purity made simple facial cleanser, one microdelivery triple-acid brightening peel pad, a 0.5 oz hope in a jar moisturizer for all skin types, a 0.375 oz when hope is not enough facial firming serum and a 0.25 oz eye hope multitasking eye cream.
This is a great shaver that’s designed to leave your man’s face nice and smooth. The best part is that after the shave, the Braun Clean & Renew System automatically cleans, charges, and lubricates the shaver at the touch of a button! This set also includes a bonus Fusion Pro Glide Styler – you know the one that features Adrien Brody and Andre 3000 in the commercials. It’s a 3-in-1 facial hair styling tool that trims evenly, shaves closely and edges accurately.

Nicki Minaj – the hip hop superstar, tweeted a picture of her new fragrance yesterday. The bottle looks like a mini statuesque figure of Minaj, complete with her signature pink tresses and gold chain.
According to Minaj, the fragrance smells like “angels playing”. Interesting description to say the least, so I guess we should expect a light, playful heavenly scent even though the bottle screams bubble gum!
Named after her debut album, Pink Friday should be available in stores sometime near the end of September. The rapper has had much success with her previous products; like her MAC lipstick and very own Barbie doll, so I’m sure her Barbz will be lining up! I wonder if there will be limited edition sets that include her Pink Friday lipstick and nail color? That would be a nice extra!
