Strong and almost sour.
I was expecting floral but I'm not getting any of that from this fragrance. It has a strong chemical smell That is almost sour. That's the best way I can describe it. I tried it on to see if it would be different once I was wearing it but I found it to be Ben worse. I changed my shirt and used wipes for my arms and neck and I STILL can't get rid of it the smell (I used to sprays). So Pro: if you love this it's long lasting and a little goes a long way. Lol This fragrance also seems off season. It's is a very heavy perfume and seems much more appropriate for the fall and for a matronly woman. I'm a little bummed bc it's my first fragrance and I waited 3 weeks for it to get here. If there's a way to send this one back I'd love too bc I will absolutely NEVER wear it.

Old
Normally I love this cologne. It’s one of my go to scents...so handy for a little scent bird to be purse ready. Couldn’t use this one it was old and had gotten that strong aged smell. This is one that needs to be fresh or at least within the realm of wearing. Love scent bird and have tried a few scents in the last year. Love the convenience of the little spray canister!

This smelled so bad I spray one spray and ughh it's just awful I had to change my clothes and the scent was just so over powering could still smell like it. I guess be ok if you need to cover up some really bad funky body odor this would deffiently hide it with a horrific smell . Very very very strong.

Smells like a grandmother
I did not like this scent at all. I had high hopes due to the reviews, but when I tried it it did not smell AT ALL like I expected. The musk is overpowering and it smells like a grandmother or church lady. I'm in my 30's, so not terribly young, but this one was way too "old" for me. I do no recommend unless that is the type of scent you are going for.

Best smelling I’ve got
This is a really subtle scent but you can still catch a whiff of it on yourself every now and then. It’s super light, which is fine because I was looking for an elegant yet casual scent that you could literally wear to something as simple as a trip the grocery store. A great everyday scent. Crisp and clean. Would recommend for warmer months.

It has a bit of a strong smell at the beginning, but for some reason as the day goes by it smells better. It also is very long lasting so that's a big plus for me! The only reason why im giving this a 4 star and not a 5 is because of the initial strong smell, but other than that i love it!!

People like this?
When you spray it smells like an old lady. Then when it calms down it smells like an old lady. Some perfumes simmer down and are tolerable. Or calm down to a different scent. Not this. this is the most horrible smell my nose has ever encountered. To say it smells like an old lady is offensive to old ladies. Nobody should ever smell this bad.

This scent is fine...
Well, the scent is fine, but I would never buy this scent on my own. I personally think, that this perfume smells a little bit like my grandma's perfume. Nothing bad about that, but just I can't imagine me wearing this perfume on daily basis. After some while it smells better than in the beginning. I just don't like jasmine scent in my perfume. Glad I tried it, so I know what I don't prefer :)

I love Estee Lauder Modern Muse. Feels sexy and sophisticated. My shipment arrived on time, and I cannot wait for next month's fragrance. Love this!

Enjoyed the scent a lot. A little strong, one spray more than enough to last all day. Would recommend to everyone!!!!

Not a fan. smells like a cross between an old lady and bug spray. Hate that I wasted a month on this one. My husband's thoughts, "it's stanky!"
