Youth Dew no longer exists and you will not find it when you get home with your new bottle that looks like the old bottles . No one will warn you that you are buying a weak vapor that will totally dissipate after five minutes , max . So much for integrity at the Lauder House.

The same goes for Beautiful. It looks the same, but only a faint vapor appears and then it disappears swiftly …

Estée Lauder Youth Dew is described as a Spicy Resinous Oriental. It is my signature scent for fall and winter. I adore this perfume! I got my first bottle in the mid 70's and wore it while I dated my husband and he loved it. It's so interesting how scents reach into a part of our brains that conjure up memories and and even emotions from the period in time in which we wore them. I had …Read more

Classy, mysterious, oriental magic. My mom and I agree on these points when it comes to describing this amazing perfume. Ps: if you are a type of person who prefers floral and sweet scents this not for you though you can try it you might like it. This is because I prefer these types of perfumes: No5, chance, coco, aromatics, cinnabar, No22, coromandel, miss dior originale, crystal noir, Jo …Read more

I love this mysterious rich fragrance. To me, it says sultry siren, not giggling little girl like so many of the fruity bubbly scents so prominent this decade.

Youth-Dew is the soul food of fragrances. Next to today's watery fruit cocktails and pink-peppercorn pseudo-chypres, it stands like an impressive wall of complex richness. I mean, you have to give credit to a distinctive classic fragrance that still sells well after 63 years on the market. And the packaging is distinctive, too: the powder-blue boxes with "EL" in pale gold script …Read more

Wow, I'm so happy that this magical elixir completely melds with my body chemistry!

I'm starting to really get into the oriental spicy category of fragrance, and I recently bought Obsession. That worked beautifully on me. I'd heard a lot about Youth Dew, and I've read tons of polarizing reviews. So I went on Ebay and blind-bought a bottle of Youth Dew just for the …

by far this is the most offensive noxious fragrance ever made. You know that strong overwhelming smell from the old lady in church with the dirty tissues tucked up her sleeve, she is no doubt wearing youth dew. THERE IS NOTHING YOUTHFUL ABOUT IT. It is so strong and headache gag worthy. I hate this fragrance so much I think it should be banned as poison. Chemical warfare in a bottle.

This once great fragrance is now a shadow of its former self - sold in discount chemist stores for 30 bucks or less, reformulated, watered down and tamed. In its heyday it was the quintessential smokey incense oriental. The good thing is that the bath oil still smells fantastic.

If you love this, just go for the bath oil instead and dab it on instead of perfume. The other great thing …

SamiDin hit the nail on the head with this one - I actually cringed because I was instantly time-machined to 1983 when I was 10 and my parents were still pretending it was 1973.

It is indeed extremely "Tweed"-ish. Blue eyeshadow and plucked-and-redrawn eyebrows behold, cigar smoke, Pernod-and-black(currant).

My Mum wore this for years and while I miss …

so I was by the Estee Lauder fragrance counter, decided to pick this Youth-Dew up and smell the bottle nozzle and it just called out to me. This is such an amazing scent.
I have never owned a bottle of this myself and have not smelt it on many people as far as I can remember. The few times that I have smelt this I had thought it was some wonderful incense close by and not actually a …
