Creator of Youth Dew passes away

For my friends Camille and Emily: the venerable creator of Youth Dew, Fidji, and many other fragrances, Joséphine Catapano, has just recently died at the age of 93. Perfumeshrine has coverage.

It’s good to see that a woman had such a long and varied career in perfumery. There are many indie women now but there was a time when that was too rare.

The vintage style bottle of Youth Dew is for sale right now at Nordstrom, by the way, in Eau de Parfum strength, for $32. I’ve been watching it because the style of the bottle is so fantastic. Reminds me of my own grandmother.
