About this deal

There are still the differences of a rich nitromusk note in the base and the vanilla is more prominent. There's a powder that comes out of this scent which I think combined with aldehydes make it unisex and very easy for women to wear as well. Old Spice for men was inspired by a colonial theme and the company's founder opted for a nautical branding. Perhaps Old Spice was once sold at that level, then it's current makers decided to slide it downmarket.

I only use it around Halloween, sunday mass sometimes, thanksgiving day, Christmas eve, Christmas day, new years eve and new years day and through the end of winter. I do enjoy this cologne especially in the morning and wear it on spring and summer days when the powdery quality of the vanilla and heliotrope enchant the noses of girls next to me.

I think anybody of any age can wear this, but maybe it's more of a 30+ scent, and maybe a lot of people would dismiss this as a "grandpa" scent. However, given its widespread use and lengthy history, I do understand that most people are going to associate it with men, because I'm guessing many of us had a father or grandfather who wore it.

Odd thing though is wearing the splash-on (wore too much perhaps) out in public, and having seniors actually say you (or rather the cologne itself. A little splashed on the back of my neck was still discernible five to six hours later and getting more comfortable, stabilizing and, yes, nostalgic all the time; a lovely, dusty base with traces of musk, cinnamon, nutmeg and whatever passes for sandalwood. It was my daddy's signature scent, although he'd scoff at that idea - he was such an old school manly man. As another reviewer here has stated, it is sure to remind them of men they've loved in their families. I believe the reason why some people say Old Spice is unisex is because they are confusing the after shave with the cologne.While we strive to provide accurate and helpful information, we cannot guarantee the complete accuracy or reliability of the AI-generated pros and cons. I sometimes will work out on lunch break and use it before work and I find myself loving it more and more.

Sillage is nuclear - someone smelled it across a large room after I did just a tiny dab from the stopper on my wrist - and longevity (with generous application) is around five hours, possibly more depending on the weather. If you want something in the same vein but different British Stirling aftershave is a good one as is Stirling Soap Company's Stirling Spice which is more akin to the original long gone Old Spice from decades ago. While this is a nicely balanced fragrance, overdoing it will likely do you in and those around you, at least for the first hour. I have worn this fragrance for almost 45 years, whether the Original or newer Classic version, and in the fall/winter/spring, is worn as much as anything else I own, which is approaching three dozen colognes. Maceration may have helped here too, but certainly the note quality of this bottle remains very clear.This time, being more into perfume I could actually smell some different notes and wondered how this old cologne that was so popular when I was growing up in the 70's, could still smell so fresh and current!
