This was such a pleasure and discovery very optimistic and very positive fragrance and loud!
I guess I just hate incense in perfumes, though I don't hate it when people burn incense, in fact I kind of like it but every perfume I've thought smelled awful has turned out to have incense in it. It's so much lighter, but still very very full bodied and long lasting.

Youth-Dew by Estée Lauder is a Oriental Spicy fragrance for women. The nose behind this fragrance is Josephine Catapano.
I saturated a cotton ball with about 40-45 sprays of the EDP then dropped it into a quart mason jar and filled it 3/4 full with cornstarch.
According to directions I read online I am supposed to keep it in a cool dark place and give it a good shake twice a day for 2 weeks.
You can wear this one to get noticed, but the only person you're *really* wearing YD for is yourself. I work from home so I wear it all day, but if I'm going out, this one comes with me at night only. Don't throw on cut off jean shorts and a tee, then try to rock YD -- unless you're purposely wanting to be crude (and why would you ever want to do that on purpose, dahlings? I am in my 20s and do not think this scent is at all inappropriate for me. Sometimes I sneak a tiny amount just to enjoy a faint whiff of the scent, but my husband can smell one measly molecule of Youth Dew a mile away, and he loathes this fragrance like no other. First off, if you’ve never smelled it before, you might imagine something with a name like Youth-Dew to smell like Stella EDT - rosey, mild, innocent. It’s a conundrum to me because this smells ancient.
The scent is intimate and stays by your side all day long. And speaking of cats, one of mine will *not* leave me alone when I'm wearing YD. I thoroughly enjoyed the reviews, the loves and the HELL NO! This will certainly elicit a strong reaction in most people. The lady at the the counter at Nordstroms thought my reaction was hysterical! Not Nana’s with purple hair, I’m talking truly ancient like Queen Catharine of Aragon or Cleopatra.
She wore Youth-Dew and would let me use her powder when I got out of the bathtub. I just wanted to say how grateful I am that this scent is still available.I think there’s a good chance that Estée Lauder must have dialed this back over the years.I am in the process right now of making the body powder.I started on New Year’s Day and will report back when it’s done.
The name of this scent is misleading, because it has been described as "an old lady perfume" by lots of people.Also, I personally have a low tolerance for sweetness in perfume and find the bath oil too sweet for my tastes.
