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.
I started on New Year’s Day and will report back when it’s done.
Last my looooove ..., Their smoldering beauty and sex appeal oozing from every pore.
I spray into the air and walk through and do not find it overwhelming at all (and I am a person who is sensitive to fragrances).I dont recommend this perfume for women who still consider themselves "girls" that like trendy citrus ,bubble gum and cookies types or snow flakes that dissolve when the going gets tough, nor females who like the "came out of shower" casual floral types. Intoxicating florals over a dark, velvet base that has everything: balsams, amber, patchouli, vanilla, vetiver, oakmoss. There is an initial blast of aldehydes, cloves incense and sweet spice. The bath oil is sweeter and richer than the edp, really lovely and warming on a bitterly cold winter day. Furthermore, I'm thinking you could spray a tiny bit of the edp or pour one drop of the bath oil into an unscented lotion or body oil to tone it down. I imagine it more on mature woman with a strong character who's not affraid to be noticed and who likes to be in the front stage.This perfume of youth dew, belongs to a regal female who is proud being an adult woman, who is queen of her own world , classic and beautiful in personality and style thats stands out from the rest of stock of "basic women". What 80's powerhouse orientals wished they could be. I always think I'm going to like this better than I do; it has all the notes I love, and I have a soft spot for this era of fragrances, but it's just a bit... It also has a distinctly masculine feel to it - shades of 70's masculine powerhouses like Halston Z-14 and Salvador Dali Pour Homme - that I struggle with. In any case, this one is not for the faint of heart. But don't hesitate to break the codes, it's always interesting. Technically it is a great perfume and was groundbreaking for its time.Top notes are aldehydes, orange, spices, peach, bergamot, narcissus and lavender; middle notes are cinnamon, cassia, orchid, jasmine, cloves, ylang-ylang, rose, lily-of-the-valley and spicy notes; base notes are tolu balsam, peru balsam, amber, patchouli, musk, vanilla, oakmoss, vetiver and incense. The silage is enormous, and longevity is off the chart. It's strange how smells good or bad, have the power to evoke and conjure memories of long ago.My current 2018 Youth Dew in the vintage 1953 blue bottle (Thank you Nordstrom for carrying this) is actually the BEST smelling Youth Dew I have ever had or smelled. The scent is similar to the ointment that my great-grandmother used to apply on us when my sisters and I were sick, it gave us comfort and sleep better. This perfume takes me back to the mid 80s as a twelve year old.I loved the design of the gift box and it was also a set, it had the parfum and a big heavy white body lotion .
