Best For 08:42am
I HAVE LOVED THIS PRODUCT FOR 23 YEARS NOW AND IT'S EVER SINCE I MET MY LOVELY WIFE NOW ON A CARRIBEAN CRUISE IN 1992. I WAS INSTANTLY ATTRACTED TO HER AND IT WAS HER POISE, EASY MANNER AND THIS WONDERFUL FRAGRANT ESTE LAUDER YOUTH DEW WHICH TO THIS DAY SHE USES DAILY. I HAVE IT REAL EASY FOR CHRISTMAS AND OTHER SPECIAL DAYS IN THE YEAR. IT IS A NO BRAINER FOR ME TO KEEP HER USING THIS PRODUCT AS IT IS ONE OF THE FACTORS WE MARRIED THREE YEARS LATER AND HONEY MOONED WHERE WE MET AND TOOK MANY CRUISES TOGETHER FROM THAT TIME. IT'S BEEN TWENTY YEARS MARRIED NOW AND STILL JUST LOVE THE FRAGRANCE. IT IS SO MELLO AND DOES NOT BOTHER MY ALLERGIES AT ALL. WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY YOUR PRODUCT HAS BROUGHT THE LOVE OF MY LIFE INTO BEING. WHAT MORE COULD ONE MAN ASK! I THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.
I have used Youth Dew for years and no matter what other fragrances I try, I always come back to my Youth Dew. I get so many complaints on it all the time. Fragrance stays with you and I like this as I don't have to re-apply. It is also not over powering. I give it as presents to family and friends. Yes, yes I recommend this to all people.
Best For everyday, Year Round, spicy, long lasting
I wear this everyday. It smells so spicy and exotic, so lovely. My husband loves it on me too. I get so many compliments. It lasts so long. It lingers all day. And all night. I feel beautiful every time I put it on. You must try it. It is better than all of the newer perfumes. It makes those new perfumes smell cheap. This smells expensive. It will transport you to far away place in your mind. Great aromatherapy!
I have been using this product since the age of 15. I was so intrigued by the fragrance that I have used it ever since. I still am asked what fragrance I use because so many people love the scent. It does not precede you into a room. I just love it and have used this product for over 40 years. It's a classic.
I first bought Youth Dew as a young teenager and can remember every time my Dad would come home from work, he would say I can tell my sweet smelling daughter is here. He is no longer with me, but every day I spray on my Youth Dew and it is such a warm and sweet memory of him. I have tried other perfumes, but always come back to Youth Dew! I never go a day without someone telling me how nice I smell and how fresh and clean my scent is! I use Estee Lauder for all my make up and skin care products, but the Youth Dew is just the frosting on the cake!!! Just love it!
Best For a special gift for a dear friend, fond memories
I have a friend named Gloria who is 84 years young. Her birthday was July 25th and all she wanted was a bottle of Youth Dew, her signature scent so I went to Younkers close to where I am staying in Michigan and purchased a bottle along with the free samples they gave me. Next I packaged up the bottle, went to the post office to mail and was shocked to learn I could not ship because it was flammable. So I called Gloria to let her know I would be sending something else She was so disappointed and frankly doubted me. I asked a friend if she could go to the BX at Vandenberg AFB and get a bottle to take to Gloria, well that did not happen. So after much thought, I remembered I had ordered and purchase on line from Estee so I called and placed the order. Gloria called me she got the package via UPS and was so overjoyed. Her comment "now I smell good again". I should also mention she has dementia so good days, bad days happen but she sure remembers her youth dew.
bought this on my birthday last year.. it smells so good I still can't resist myself from not using it..i also use it before bed.. CZ really I can't stop loving it..my husband loves it too.. it has a very vibrant smell.. and very very long lasting..
I've worn Youth Dew for over 30 years and have received countless compliments on how good it smells and it does!!! It stays with you all through the day and evening and the scent is heavenly. It makes me happy every time I wear it. Nothing better on the market!
Best For any occasion becomes special with youth dew
Youth Dew brings back so many memories. As a teen, I was introduced to this warm fragrance by a beloved auntie. I am automatically taken back to a time of joy and a sense of love and security. Perhaps that is why I find myself smiling and relaxing as I am enveloped in it's gentle tones...
I used this perfume when it was the blue bottle, I was a young teenager then. I haven't used Youth Dew in years, then I saw it on a website and HAD to get some again. And here I am. I LOVE this perfume, I know I'll get compliments, and my man will LOVE it too!
Best For everyday use, romantic occasions, after bathing/showering, social gatherings, before bedtime
This fragrance is one of the forerunners as my signature scent. One of the others is Youth Dew's offspring, Cinnabar. This is a complete turnaround in my attitude toward the fragrance. Just 4 months or so ago, when I smelled it I actually recoiled in horror. Now, I love the scent so much that I plan to always own at least one bottle of it for the rest of my life. I've also gone on to buy the bath oil and roll on deodorant. I plan to get the powder soon as well.
I genuinely hope that women in my age group will at least give this fragrance a chance. Here is my advice: when you go to the EL counter to test the fragrance, do dare to spray it on your skin. That is the only way to experience Youth Dew's warm, bold and spicy allure. Wait at least 2 minutes for some of the alcohol to evaporate before you smell the test patch. Wait another 5-10 if necessary. I think this is the only way to experience the warmth from the spices.
BTW, my husband and I are both in our early 30's. When I'm wearing this scent he won't let me walk past him without commenting on how good I smell.
My great-grandmother and my mother both wore this fragrance. I let my mother smell my new bottle to ask her if it smelled different (from the 70's and 80's formulations), and she said it still smelled the way she remembered. Youth Dew is timeless, and I think any woman can wear this. It will always hold a special place in my heart and my perfume collection.
Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

My Youth Dew collection, and me wearing Double Wear Foundation from Estee Lauder. Fan for life!
Best For the finishing touch in getting ready for the day.
Youth Dew is a generational tradition in my family. My mother wore the fragrance, I wear the fragrance, my daughter, and now my grand-daughter wears the fragrance. The lingering waft of comforting fragrance when we are apart, reminds us of the love we feel for one another. If I personally cannot spray myself with Youth Dew when I get ready for the day, in the morning, I feel as if I am not properly dressed. Youth Dew gives me personal comfort. It is the gentle fragrance of a fresh, spring morning.
Youth Dew is my favorite go to perfume that I have worn for years. Others come and go, but I always have Youth Dew. I carry whenever I travel and frequently receive compliments. It's a spicy, oriental type fragrance that I love wearing with the bath powder and lotion.
I love this youth dew! I have used youth dew for over 30 years, however I had a hard time keeping it available all the time. I had to travel to the city to get youth dew. Now I can order and have it delivered when I need my youth dew, talk about progress! thank you.
The scent of this perfume has been my favorite for a very long time. I have had many other bottles of fragrance since 1960 when I first used this; some I have liked very much, however, I keep coming back to Youth-Dew and loving it!
