“Sweet Motor Oil”
LAUDER : Youth Dew
by Catapano (1953)
Originally a bath oil, 30% oils as concentration (like this, women could buy it without feeling too luxurious). Could just as well be a TF men-scent, a bit of a misnomer for how heavy it is.
Heavily spiced floriental; lots of clove; used to be heavy on civet, now more focused on leather. Indolic flowers, and cinnamon. Tolu balsam; broad-shouldered patchouli.
