Ralph Lauren or Estee Lauder?

So you want to treat yourself to a
scent-sational new perfume but you find yourself torn between two different fragrances? You like the bold fragrance of Ralph Lauren Safari but on the other hand you're leaning towards the traditional classic fragrance Estee Lauder Youth Dew. Which to choose? Let's take a look at each fragrance to help you decide.

Ralph Lauren Safari
Launched in 1990 by top perfumer Dominique Ropion, the scent of Ralph Lauren Safari is inspired by the all-American lifestyle. As are many of Ralph Lauren's perfumes, Safari was designed to symbolise the American dream of the spirit of freedom and adventure of the great outdoors; akin to the call to the wild within each of us.

Since its launch in the 1990s, Ralph Lauren Safari has enjoyed considerable success with its floral aroma and light breezy scents of the natural open air. The perfume’s top notes are galbanum, hyacinth and mandarin while the heart of Ralph Lauren Safari is a gorgeous bouquet of lily of the valley, rose, iris and narcissus. Base notes comprise vetiver, tonka bean and moss.

Pure class in a beautiful cut glass bottle, this is a perfume that instantly gels with your body chemistry and smells different on each person making it a very unique personal scent. Made for the confident women who aren't the 'wallflower' type, Ralph Lauren Safari has great staying power and will certainly have people commenting and asking you what your scent is.

Estee Lauder Youth Dew
An absolute classic amongst fragrances, Estee Lauder Youth Dew was created in 1953 by Josephine Catapano. Youth Dew was Estee Lauder's very first perfume and was initially introduced as perfumed bath oil. During the war, perfume was considered to be a luxury item and was not readily available.

Since bath oils were more commonly available, Estee Lauder cleverly created the Youth Dew fragrance in this more accessible form. It was an instant success, which secured Estee Lauder’s name on the luxury brand map.

This captivating perfume has an opulent flower scent with rich spices and woody undertones. Hailed as one of the sexiest fragrances of all time and more than 50 years after it was first launched, Estee Lauder Youth Dew continues to seduce with its timeless and sensual appeal.

Top notes of this extraordinary fragrance include aldehydes, orange, bergamot and peach. The middle notes embody rose, jasmine, cinnamon, cloves, cassia, orchid and ylang-ylang while base notes resonate with vanilla, amber, patchouli, tolu balsam, peru balsam, musk, oakmoss and vetiver. A heady mix!

So which is your type - the timeless, classic nostalgic sophistication of Estee Lauder Youth Dew or the more modern and adventurous but equally classic Safari?
