I am wearing it I wore it… It inspires me It doesn't inspire me


The floral notes of carnation, ylang ylang, rose and jasmine are spiced up with cinnamon and clove and warmed by orange, bergamot and peach. Its distinguishing end note of balsam, patchouli, incense and honey add a remarkable lingering quality.


A forerunner in American perfumery which was nonexistent at the time, Estée Lauder decided to create a product that would meet the expectations of American women. Instead of launching an eau de toilette that American women didn't use to buy, she developed a bath oil with a light and airy name, Youth Dew, sold in drugstores. The lid of the container was designed to allow for smelling the fragrance before purchase. It became an instant success because a single bath made it possible to perfume the whole body for a whole day with a scent that was identifiable, straightforward, unpretentious and remained on the skin. It was an ideal perfume for the active woman who wanted to be recognized by her perfume that also had the strength to last until evening. Once established as a bath oil, Youth Dew came out as an eau de toilette.

    Il ne me correspond pas. Cependant, je lui reconnais beaucoup de qualités. Il m'évoque la beauté froide au tempérament volcanique d'une star d'Hollywood telle que Joan Crawford.

    Je l'ai essayé à plusieurs reprises et j'adore son côté "baumé". Il fera partie de mes prochains achats. j'ai un faible pour ce type de parfums où les résines dominent avec l'ylang ylang. La présence du clou de girofle, de la cannelle et de l'orange donne dans leur association un côté très chaleureux ; une chaleur hivernale. Il est enrobant, sensuel. Je comprends celles qui n'aiment pas les parfums qui ont une présence telle que Youth Dew, mais moi j'y suis vraiment addict. Cinnabar entre dans la même catégorie et je trouve que c'est une très grande réussite.
