WOW! For years, I looked at this stuff and was even afraid to spray it. That weird brown liquid in the bottle was alarming. And to sniff it from the bottle was ....WHEW! Imagine my surprise when a woman I know gave me a hug and she smelled heavenly. The absolute only time I ever asked anyone what they were wearing and she replied, "Youth Dew." I finally decided to give it a try. I purchased a bottle (it is still really cheap) and gave it two good sprays on my arm before bed. My initial reaction was, "Oh no, this is just wrong." But five minutes later, it became very powdery. After ten miutes, it was interesting. By fifteen minutes later, I was in bed, inhaling my pajama sleeve. When I woke up this morning, my husband said, "I smell Bottlecaps." I said, "What?" He said, "Bottlecaps. The candy. You know, the cola ones. It smells really good." YES! It strangely DOES have some sort of cola syrup smell, followed by a powdery amber cinnamon base. It is delicious! I am 35 years old and this is far from being old lady like. I can understand the complaints from folks who say it is changed, even watered down. Please understand that one of the primary components of this is oakmoss, which a few years back was regulated by the industry due to allergies and a lot of scents were forced to reformulate or stop being made. So yes, it is somewhat different. But it is still way better than anything on the market today, scents that smell like candy and fruits. There is a reason it has been around for 60 years. In fact, my cousin just got married and Youth Dew is all she wears. And she is 30 years old, not 95! Please stop judging this scent by it's initial blast. Give it a chance to blend with your body chemistry. And only one or two sprays!
