Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

Electric Youth by Debbie Gibson c1989

Electric Youth by Debbie Gibson: Launched in 1989 in association with Revlon. Named after the best selling pop album and song.

Debbie stated in a newspaper interview in 1990 that she helped pick the scent for the perfume. "I met with the people at Revlon and told them what perfumes I liked and what I wanted to be different about mine. It was real interesting to find out how that stuff was made. They have little bottles of everything that goes into it. It was fun saying, "I'll have a little more or less of that."

Dutiful fans purchased $15 million worth of the scent within the first year.

Fragrance Composition:

So what does it smell like?  It is classified as a fruity floral fragrance with a slight oriental effect for women.
  • Top notes: citrus, kiwi, peach, passion fruit
  • Middle notes: jonquil, jasmine, freesia
  • Base notes: amber, sandalwood, musk, vanilla

The vintage juice was originally tinted pink, but over the years, it has turned an amber color due to the natural aging and oxidation process of the ingredients such as vanilla.

Fate of the Fragrance:

It was discontinued around 1995, but old stock was still being sold until around 1999. There is some stock being sold online which is a reformulated version that was relaunched in 2006. The new version is still quite pink in color, so if you are looking for the vintage, you may wish to find the bottles filled with the amber colored juice.
