Estée Lauder Youth Dew Eau De Parfum Spray

An absolutely captivating perfume, with opulent flowers, rich spices, precious woods.

It has been called one of the sexiest fragrances ever created, and more than 50 years after it was launched it continues to entice with its sensual, yet timeless appeal.

Fragrance Type: Oriental/Spicy

THE INSPIRATION
"Women still like to feel beautiful, pampered and loved, And that is what Youth Dew is all about." —Estée Lauder

Created in 1953, Youth Dew was the very first fragrance from the Estée Lauder company and it was the first American fragrance to capture the imagination of women worldwide.

Estée Lauder wondered why women relied on the men in their lives to buy them perfume. And why they reserved fragrance only for special occasions. To change women's minds — and forever change the world of fragrance — Mrs. Lauder created Youth?Dew Bath Oil.

Captivating, rich and exceptionally lasting, women bought it for the bath, but, as Mrs. Lauder predicted, soon began wearing Youth Dew as their fragrance as well. Because it was sold as a bath oil, not perfume, women felt free to enjoy and wear it every day. Instead of using Youth Dew by the drop, women used it by the bottle. Men loved it too, saying it was "simply the sexiest fragrance ever."

Because Youth Dew was Estée Lauder's premier fragrance, she personally introduced it in the U.S. and in Europe. When stores in France were reluctant to carry it, Mrs. Lauder "accidentally" spilled the fragrance in one of Paris' most elegant department stores. Customers found the scent so irresistible, the store quickly decided to carry it after all.

Youth Dew made women feel adored. It quickly became a world-wide phenomenon. A legend with timeless appeal that endures to this day.

Strongest points
Long lasting fragrance, trusted brand.
Weakest points
Overpowering, ageing effect.
Summary
This product still comes in the same bottle as it did thirty years ago and perhaps even longer. The presentation is attractive and the fragrance is certainly long lasting. It is very strong and overwhelming from the start, and has the unfortunate characteristic of being strongly associated with previous decades. Fragrances which are strongly associated with a period in time tend to date the wearer to that particular time, and so this has an undesirable effect of ageing them. One to avoid.

This is one that is instantly recogniseable. It is a timeless icon in the Estee Lauder range, but in todays market,i think it's to powerful a scent.
A little goes a long way with this scent, as they say 'less is more' and i believe that applies to the oils that create todays fragrances.

A tried and tested Old Timer.

To many elements clashing.
Summary
A strong perfume which at one time was a valued item in many females handbags.
The upper tones and undertones are vast, causing a headiness.

Weakest points
At odds with the light feminine modern florals
Summary
From 1953 and it shows, not unpleaseant but very much of it's time (especially if you sniff it from the bottle). Spicy and sweet, very much vanilla and amber it can work but not always. I rather liked a quote I read about it recently "It can be worn with irony or it can be worn with sincerity, in homage to a time passed."
