Youth Dew is a spicy oriental fragrance launched in 1953 and created by Josephine Catapano. Lauder introduced Youth Dew as a bath oil knowing that women who expected men to buy perfume for them would feel more comfortable buying bath oil for themselves. Once the bath oil was selling well, Lauder introduced an eau de parfum.

Youth Dew is a heavy hitter so a little goes a long way. As it dries down the spices, amber and vanilla come out and it becomes a lovely, warm scent. Youth Dew is an immediately identifiable scent and has a good amount of sillage. As Bois de Jasmin said in a review, “Youth Dew is explosive, but it has something new releases do not: grandeur. It is as commanding a scent as you are likely to find, and it hails from an era of perfumery we will not see the likes of again. A few drops of Youth Dew in the bath is indescribably luxurious, the type of luxury that has been lost today. It’s beautiful worn that way, as a trace olfactory element to be smelled only by those closest to you.

Youth Dew won a 1994 Fragrance Hall of Fame FiFi Award.

Youth Dew is still being produced by Estee Lauder.

This is the original eau de parfum version of the fragrance.

It has gone through many reformulations and this is the current one that is for sale.

    If you like civet, you should try Youth Dew

    If you like civet, you should try Youth Dew. But I myself have aversions to civet/animalic scents. Would prefer to know the year of this current formulation.

    Estee Lauder Youth Dew

    I'm very sensitive to the scents of perfumes. I was looking for something light that would not make my nose itch. This failed. I was also told that this was close to KL by Karl Lagerfeld for Women which was discontinued. Not even close.

    I wore Youth Dew throughout the 70s, so am well-aware of its powerful vintage personality. With the removal of banned elements it's become a wholly different experience. That isn't a problem in itself; I'm happy to embrace change if the new iteration can project the same balance and confidence (see Cinnabar). Sadly, Youth Dew now seems needy and ordinary. It's lost its dark, sensuous anchor and is adrift in a roiling sea of floral madness. The biggest issue for me is the the mid phase, which now has a funky sweetness that's impossible to endure (ylang-ylang?). When a fragrance has this much sillage, you need to be confident that it deserves the attention.
