Yes, and I think the ribbed one with the gold bow is original , too, isn't it? This one still smells the same to me. It is strong & a lot of bang for the buck, still under $40, I believe.

I adore Youth Dew, even though I can't often wear it. I love the bath oil, and the lotion that came in a light aqua-blue glass pump bottle used to be very nice. I haven't tried that in ages, don't even know if it's still made.

I've heard that the blue bottle is a slightly better formulation?? Spritzed lightly, YD is a wonderful fall frag, IMO.

I adore Youth Dew and I prefer the glass bottle as I can see the thick brown juice .However I always end up taking off the little gold bow on elastic ....... I also love the parfum and the bath oil ( to use a perfume ) .I find the bath oil sweeter and more vanillic but I just love original Youth Dew.
Yep, I think it's still about $35.

I love Youth Dew! I have it in the parfum and the body lotion, would love to try it in the bath oil one day.

I use the vintage bath oil in the same way I use my modern Ava Luxe perfume oils....The waisted bottle always struck me as a bit "Baby Jane," especially with the name of the frag....reminded me of the whole "blood of virgins" creepfest, LOL.....

Youth Dew is one of the great underrated treasures out there. I love Estee Lauder for maintaining their classic frags and for continuing to make such distinctive scents. Even if they are not for me, I admire that they make no apologies, nor do they ever give the impression of being created by committee!

Alliage. Now that one is distinctive!

I don't even like Youth Dew, but I had to look at the Lauder website, and wow -- that 2.5 ounce cinched-waist bottle of EDP with the gold bow is still only $44. That's gotta be one of the best bargains around in perfumery.


And the 2-ounce bath oil is only $47. Bless their hearts, they still sell the dusting powder, too. Nobody does that any more.

With apologies for joining this thread so late, have also understood and gotten a certain sensation why especially vintage Youth Dew could be unisex.
As its richness and quite distinctive classic style can effortlessly stand out on wearers of either gender.

I used to adore this perfume, it's amazing, but now I've moved on to something more feminine.
