Youth Dew

2014-12-10 20.03.56 (2)

Youth Dew starts with a hot aldehydic burst of perfectly complimentary notes (Estée Lauder 1953).  They blend so well together that one must try hard to pick each out.  However, perhaps the most noticeable on my skin are orange and bergamot.

Into the drydown the spices, amber, balsams, incense, vetiver and patchouli drift in from the periphery and float gently among the florals, aldehydes and spices.  While some may claim that Youth Dew is overwhelming or harsh, if you have the right skin chemistry it can be anything but.  Indeed, Youth Dew is an ideal fragrance, particularly for late summer into fall… While it certainly has presence and strength there’s a gentle, quiet beauty about Youth Dew that is unmistakable.  In fact, I think that it’s the best oldfactory combination of strength, sensitivity and warmth I’ve ever smelled.

Top notes: aldehydes, orange, spices, peach, bergamot, narcissus and lavender.  Middle notes: cinnamon, cassia, orchid, jasmine, cloves, ylang-ylang, rose, lily-of-the-valley and spicy notes.  Base notes: tolu balsam, peru balsam, amber, patchouli, musk, vanilla, oakmoss, vetiver and incense.

And today is finally Friday…  I’m not sure what else to say…

I hope you’re having a pleasant end to your week dear readers…
