About this deal

As one previous fragrance member once expressed, "It smells like maybe what Louis XIV's wig musta smelled like. Yes, I'm married now, and recently got a sweet hug and "how are you" from that same man I knew 25 years ago. Even without our heartfelt Dad/Granddad associations, the original Shulton formula was just beautiful. I love just about every note in this fragrance, but the spicy top and the warm base get me every time.

Something that just about any man or woman could enjoy wearing once in a while, as I most certainly do.

A beautiful AS cologne which due to the strong note of cinnamon reminds me of CK Obsession for men except it's more pleasant for not having that old man scent that Obsession has. To me, having an Old Spice in a bathroom and to sniff it from time to time, means to be transported in times when father was young and my grandfather was still alive. The older Shulton formulation really did smell fuller initially, with a twinkling star of anise suspended in a creamy firmament of nutmeg, cinnamon, benzoin, jasmine and carnation.

Even Olivier Creed set the record straight in an interview when the interviewer tried to knock Old Spice, that it was a masterpiece he would be proud to have created. Having to stay after class to work on difficult algebra math formulas I had to sit very close to the 40 something year old man who smelled so good! I've decanted this, as well as the Old Spice Hawkridge, into amber coloured spray bottles I recently acquired, so I can spray them on now. The 1993 stuff and the current stuff smell different but they conjure up the exact same feelings for me. I haven't owned the original for years but decided recently to add a bottle to my collection--and use it, of course!

Since I was watching my 1 year old nephew at the time, I took some and put it on his lil baby neck so I could smell it later. A nice simple, spicy fragrance for guys who are starting out or don't want to pay for the bigger names like Dior or Chanel just yet who are obviously going to give you a better scent and quality. It offers a fresh, spicy, and fragrant feel while also having antiseptic properties due to its high alcohol content. I also get the mid note of flowers and cinnamon and on the skin it leaves a vanilla and musky smell.

If you put this in a fancy "niche" bottle and gave it some French name you could get a lot more money for it. I am partial to this scent because my dad wears it ❤️ Unfortunately that’s one of the main reasons I don’t find it sexy 🤣 it’s like the sweet little old man scent.I never really knew what it smelled like until I got a new in package vintage bottle that isn't plastic.

The citrus, star anise, flowers (carnation) vanilla and tonka all come together and dry with a manly musk core. Base notes blend chocolate motifs of tonka beans, seductive vanilla, fresh benzoin, resinous amber, woody cedar and sensual musk wrapped in a thin plume of incense.

Yes, this is not bad at all, and in fact I'd much rather wear this than a whole lot of recent niche releases! No, it's no longer a vintage great, but there's nothing especially terrible about it and you can recognize it as Old Spice. I loved these flowers so much especially the heliotrope that I went out and bought this fragrance for myself a couple of years ago.
