Modern Muses pucker up with Estee Lauder's lip-smackingly good offer….

Modern Muse by Estée Lauder has sought to scent your every mood – from everyday confidence, daring sophistication, flirtatious moments and nighttime glamour – there’s now a whole wardrobe of what we like to call ‘backbone in a bottle’. Something you can spritz on for an instant ambience-lift or complete change of pace – such is the magic of perfume (and one of the many reasons we love it so!)
At the moment, there’s an even more pressing reason to discover which Muse you are – read on for details of the great offer at The Perfume Shop

The original: Modern Muse – ‘Be an inspiration. Experience the fragrance that captures your style, your confidence, your creative spirit. An alluring contrast of sparkling florals and sleek, sensual woods. It’s a true innovation in fragrance design, as complex and fascinating as the woman who inspires it.’

The seducer: Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss – ‘Shine on. Be an inspiration. A deeply seductive contrast of two accords as sexy-hot and high-shine as gloss. Succulent fruits, flowers, a hint of spice and a sensual, fearless edge of supple leather with dark woods.’

The mystery: Modern Muse NUIT – ‘A daring and addictive rum accord features amidst a plume of rich Jasmine Absolute for a bold and modern take on seductive femininity. Notes of precious Amber and sensuous Musk enhance the luxury allure of this unforgettable scent.’
The extrovert: Modern Muse Le Rouge – ‘Experience the fragrance that captures your glamour, your sophistication, your bravado. A sexy, provocative contrast of two distinctively different accords – rich roses awakened by ripe fruits, with a seductive velvet creme accord – provide an intriguing dual impression.’
To celebrate Valentine’s Day and romance that reaches beyond, there’s an even better reason to reach for Modern Muse, as customers in-store at The Perfume Shop can take away a FREE full size Estée Lauder Liquid Lip Potion with any Modern Muse purchase of 50ml or above. What’s more, you can choose between two shades: the cherry red “Naughty Naive” for a flirtatiously elegant look and the deeper crimson of “Quiet Riot” for an altogether more seductive feel.
The offer is available in-store at The Perfume Shop, from now until March 26th.
Now then, who will you be inviting to get a little closer to sniff your neck and perhaps, while they’re there, admire your perfect pout…?

M.A.C's ShadeScents: perfumes to match your pout. Are you a Ruby Woo…?

M.A.C are renowned for their luscious, highly pigmented lipsticks and have now created a range of scents inspired by some of those all-time best-selling shades.
We’ve long been aware that colour and our perception of scent are closely entwined – in fact, we dedicated an entire issue of our magazine, The Scented Letter, to exploring the relationship between sight and smell –  so how wonderful to see this fully realised in M.A.C’s fragrant ‘ShadeScents’ collection. And having had a sneaky sniff of them, we’re convinced fans of the makeup colours will go wild for these, too…
