Tried this fragance from my mother's selection. To me it is home, clean and me, peaceful. I tried others and can't stand the smell! Recently, my long-life friend said she will start wearing it. Of course her birthday is coming up and I know it will be a well received gift from me.
Best For when you want to feel beautiful and alluring
Youth Dew was my first Estee Lauder fragrance, my first love. I still wear it almost 50 years later. It lingers for hours after the first spray. It is sensuous, alluring, intriguing, without being heavy or cloying.
Best For occasions offering a hint of richness and lushness, many different circumstances
I have often enjoyed this very early quintessentially estee fragrance for many different occasions, and even enjoy spraying my chest at my throat before going to bed. It is so rich and lush that I can drift off to sleep in pleasure.
Youth Dew is one of the first scents I ever smelled, because my mother has worn it since the 70's.
This scent reminds me of my Mother, dressed to the nines for a night on the town, as well as every holiday in my life.... She has worn it so much over the years, that all her clothing is permeated with it, and it is simply the scent of her. Youth Dew is in my opinion as classic as Chanel No5.... It whispers sensual, sexy woman all throughout the day.... and does not flag. It changes scent on different people, and has a chameleon quality, in that the most complimentary part of the perfume comes forward for the person it's on. Whenever I want a trip down memory lane, I smell this, and all my warmest memories come to the front of my mind.
Love this old time favorite Estee Lauder fragrance. My mother has worn it for years, I now do, and my daughter is at the age to enjoy and experience wearing this wonderful scent as well. Great things do not need change; therefore, our family (ladies) will continue enjoying Youth Dew. Our gentlemen's joy of all of us wearing it is an added bonus!!!
Don't need a free sample of this fragrance. Have been wearing this for many years and love it. Have had people stop me in grocery stores, while I am walking on the street and many more places. Please don't ever discontinue this fragrance.
I have been wearing Youth Dew since I was 18 years old. Every time someone asks what perfume I am wearing, they are surprised to learn it is "Youth Dew" - as they associate this being an "old lady's" perfume. So not true! You have to know how to wear it!!! I apply the Youth Dew body lotion and follow-up with Youth Dew perfume. Can't over do it. But I always receive compliments all the time. This is my Fall & Winter scent. Love it. Love the patchouli notes. The scent lasts my 16 hours days. Honestly!!! Just at least give it a try.
I have loved Youth Dew since my Mother wore it years ago. I now wear it (and Pleasures) and everyone comments on how lovely I smell. A gal at work said my office smells like a church (guess a lot of ladies love this scent, too). I love the old, tried and true products. Once you find something you like (love) why change? I turned 65 today. I'm so happy with my life and Estee Lauder products!
My mother has only used Youth-Dew from when it came out and she fell in love with the scent. She started working in 1949,and once she discovered Youth-Dew, she stayed with it to this day. The only problem now is, when there are Free gifts offers with purchase it is never included because it is just under the minimum purchase amount. She does not like to get 2 bottles, wants a "fresh" one every other month. Please correct this and let long time customers enjoy free gifts too. Thank you
Youth Dew is an iconic fragrance with so much beauty. This perfume has a personality and character that more "modern" perfumes simply do not have. I suggest to anyone of you that has only heard about Youth Dew, instead of listening to comments and associations to it belonging to more mature age groups, try it for yourself and experience this gem. I first encountered Youth Dew when I was a youngster and I was already enticed by its magic. Now that I am in my 20s, I am glad that I am already wearing it, because that means I will have many more years ahead of me to use it.
After first purchasing Estee Lauder Youth Dew in 1972, I wasn't sure how it would be received by friends and family. After 40 some years, I am amazed at the compliments I still receive....from adults to children!....who claim, "you smell so-o- good"
