Most Helpful Positive Review We make a great combination, don't we?
This fragrance is one of the forerunners as my signature scent. One of the others is Youth Dew's offspring, Cinnabar. This is a complete turnaround in my attitude toward the fragrance. Just 4 months or so ago, when I smelled it I actually recoiled in horror. Now, I love the scent so much that I plan to always own at least one bottle of it for the rest of my life. I've also gone on to buy the bath oil and roll on deodorant. I plan to get the powder soon as well.
I genuinely hope that women in my age group will at least give this fragrance a chance. Here is my advice: when you go to the EL counter to test the fragrance, do dare to spray it on your skin. That is the only way to experience Youth Dew's warm, bold and spicy allure. Wait at least 2 minutes for some of the alcohol to evaporate before you smell the test patch. Wait another 5-10 if necessary. I think this is the only way to experience the warmth from the spices.
BTW, my husband and I are both in our early 30's. When I'm wearing this scent he won't let me walk past him without commenting on how good I smell.
My great-grandmother and my mother both wore this fragrance. I let my mother smell my new bottle to ask her if it smelled different (from the 70's and 80's formulations), and she said it still smelled the way she remembered. Youth Dew is timeless, and I think any woman can wear this. It will always hold a special place in my heart and my perfume collection.
Most Helpful Critical Review Youth Dew formula change ruined my signature scent
EL has taken the Divine Youth Dew Scent and changed it's formula. After 50 years of using this "Divine" Spray and dusting power I am devastated. The new fragrance is not the same. I see that there are so many complaints and we ladies are heartbroken. We get responses like trend market changes and other explanations but surely someone up in their corporate offices is reading and/or hearing the complaints? When Ms Lauder created YD she gave a precious gift to womankind. This is simply a treasure that should never have been messed around with. We have lost our signature scents. The new generation will never know what they have missed. They will try the new version and move on because it is nothing special now. The original scent was used by four generations of woman in my family. The fantastic clean, delicate, classy, sensuous all day smell is gone. The magic created by Estee , that I never could understand, was how she made this scent to have such staying power without being overpowering. People would stop me all the time and ask what I was wearing because they said I smelled so good. This happened constantly over the years everywhere I went. My husband loved this scent as well as my children and later my grandchildren. I never had the pleasure to meed Ms. Lauder but I feel in my heart that if she had been alive and it was mentioned to her that they wanted to change the formula she would have said something like this. "No, No, you don't mess with perfection" They tried to change coke and we all know how that went. What next? Change the color of the White House possibly?

I have deep set eyes and Estee Lauder is the only product that will stay in place for me and not smear.
Fionabeauty from COLORADO
This is a beautiful scent when applied correctly. Please don't be one of those women that treat this like a body spray because it is not discreet or subtle we can smell it even its one spray . With that being said , this is a sexual alluring glamour sliver screen siren goddess . Joan crowford wire this , Madonna wears it so it's for those women who love to make a bold statement. It's definitely spicy and earthy and smokey .the whole collection is fabulous. If you want to smell like a 50s bombshell I would say give it a sniff in the air and not on card , it can be very putting on a blotter card
Good product; issues with sharpening
Robyne from Huntsville AL
I received this as a sample, and love it. However, tried to sharpen and didn't get a sharp point and also wasted product trying to do so. Tried my old sharpener, then a second type - same result with lipliner. I "dot" it on, wait a minute, then lightly blend. Received onyx, but will switch to espresso as I have redhead light skin. Emailed EL and they suggested the EL sharpener, but reviews indicate the same issues I have experienced. Any suggestions from others?
Love this liner
Mari from Sparkill New York
This color is great for my cool undertone. It is the only liner that stays on my eyes all day. Love it
Easy to use
Amy from NV
It is very easy to use but cannot last long. I don't like it very much.
Nice Colors But Can't Sharpen the Pencil
SarpyJo from Meridian, ID
I thought the color selection was beautiful and I have 3 of them, but I cannot seem to effectively sharpen them with the EL sharpener.
I wish you'd bring back the old eyeliner pencil duo with refillable cartridges, or the old regular pencil you had at one time.
SCS from glendale, arizona
Purchased because reviews indicated this would stay in place all day. It didn't. I used sparingly and still had dark areas under my eyes in a few hours. Also, does not sharpen well in hand or electric sharpeners--ended up losing about 3/4 inch of product, that just fell out of the pencil. At the price, EL should include a sharpener.

Won't use any other eye pencil! My color is Burgundy Suede and it's perfect for hazel colored eyes. Not only is the color great but it stays on and it's very easy to apply! Highly recommend!

The Best perfume
Yamara from Laurel md
I love it! The smell very strong
Search is over!
Bethesda from Hagerstown, Md
Many years ago my Mother let me have this scent and I fell in love! I used it sparingly as there was little left so I began to search for it. I now see the same bottle and know it must be the same scent that has always fit me so well.
Thank you for NOT changing the bottle or I might never have found it!
a layer to pamper my skin
HatuHanan from Huston, Idaho
I use this product everyday as a layer under the Youth-Dew powder after my shower and as a pick-me-up whenever I wash my hands (which is frequently these days!). I sometimes wish the fragrance was stronger as I don't wear perfume but am happy with this product. The lotion leaves my skin soft, moisturized and pampered feeling.
Youth Dew Forever
Brenda from Ottawa, Ohio
I've been using Youth Dew for over 40 yrs. I was told I'm the best smelling person in the entire workplace at one time. I can't go on vacation without someone asking me what kind of perfume I'm wearing because they love the way it smells. I've tried other scents but never get any comments on them. So I always stick with Youth Dew. No reason to spend money on the more expensive ones when this one is the best for me. Please never discontinue it.
Nan from Terre haute
I've used this pencil for years. It lasts all day and looks great.
Alondra from Rio Grande City, Tx
Excellent Product. Outstanding. I have not acquire a superior one elsewhere.The color is pure, massive black. The greatest of all is that it lasts all day. No need for a touch up. Never again considered to look elsewhere after I made use of it.
Favorite eyeliner ever!!!!
Juliet from Annapolis, Maryland
I am 50 years old and have used eyeliner since the 80s. I started using this eyeliner about 8 years ago and it's the best eyeliner I've ever used. I have gotten at least 30 or more compliments from random people, everywhere I go, regarding how beautiful The eyeliner is. As long as it's available, I plan on never switching to another brand.
Onyx is great color, but it does not stay in place
Melting in Texas from Austin, Texas
I love the color onyx. It is a nice smokey black. I used this as my eyeliner, but after a long day it did not stay in place. It smudged off. I then started to use it on my upper and lower waterline. Again, this does not stay in place and is gone. It stays better in the upper waterline to provide dimension to the eyes.
Wonderful eye pencil!
clantz28 from Madison, Wisconsin
This is a very good eye pencil! It applies smoothly and is very easy to sharpen without issue. I also love the variety of colors.
Cyncyn from Tupelo, MS
I have used this eye liner for years. It is the best eye liner ever! Stays on all day and goes on smooth whether it's a new pencil or at the end. Never drys out!

Stays In Place All Day
Ms Doover from Santa Fe, NM
I got a sample of this in a gift with purchase and wow -- finally an eye pencil that actually stays in place all day. I bought the Night Diamond color and it's not too dark or harsh and works for day or night.
