    Received a small vial of vintage Youth Dew bought on Ebay yesterday - has Youth Dew ever been available in parfum concentration? This stuff is completely opaque, almost syrupy thick and the container is apparently an original one, not something it has been decanted into. It's about the size of a small test tube and very ornamental, holds maybe 5 ml, with a latticework metal screw-top lid.

    It smells absolutely heavenly; rich, viscous, deep and sort of sneaky, without that punch-in-the-nose effect the EdP has, much smoother and much dirtier. This stuff is carnal. I suppose it could be the bath oil, but it doesn't feel like an oil, in spite of the syrupy consistency.

    Very happy!

    Sounds great Pimpinett!
    I have Youth Dew pure parfum also, but mine comes in a frosted squarish bottle with curved edges and the stopper is a glass frosted blossom. It is like dark dark brown treacle (though, slightly more fluid than treacle). It smells spectacular.

    Martine Micallef's Rose Aoud. Wasn't planning on it, but before I knew it, my sample was gone, gone, gone and I knew I had to have a FB.

    I swear, my last buy of the year

    That sounds much like the juice I got hold of. I was doubtful that I really needed another bottle of Youth Dew, bought it mostly because there was hardly anyone bidding on it and I couldn't resist the lovely flacon, but this is a different beast entirely. I'm very glad to have it.

    Hi, All,
    Today I bought a small bottle of Jacomo Silences that is either a sample or parfum . It is in a blue container shaped like the Silences edp but has a glass stopper and the bottle inside the blue cover seems to be glass. It is .25 oz. Got it at an antique shop. What do you think?

    Yesterday it was for me a day full of perfume . I received my order from Andy Tauer : Orange Star and Lonestar Memories and also they delivered to me Boxeuse ordered blind last week.
    If Lonestar and Orange made my day, especially the Lonestar, Boxeuse was dissaponting. I was not expecting so much sweetnes (plum confiture) on my skin and it reminded my of Aziyade from Parfum D'empire but less cumin....

    I'm jealous. I wanted this- on paper it's glorious- on my skin it turned into funky-town.
