Description

The overall effect - clean, creature-comfort oriental with a distinct spice cupboard/old book aura- still persists as the identity of Old Spice, and is great for cool weather. Old Spice is definitely a cologne of a mature and experienced man who has his life together and is free of drama and lives a peaceful quiet life. The soapyness kinda fades off leaving you with a delicious blend of cinnamon nutmeg vanilla and other spices mixed with a very nice woody background.

It smells very similar to the American version in that it has a hefty vanillic powder accord in the base, but there's less clove - far, far less clove. I'll suddenly catch a whiff of this as I'm wearing it, and it feels like the ghost of a memory is walking beside me. Old Spice is Wonderful spicy and definitely unisex - Any woman who enjoys Orientals should give this a go - I have no hesitation in wearing Old Spice out in public. When the citrus and spices dissipate, I detect florals and vanilla plus wood and musk, though all these notes are clean and soft, even powdery.This one smells very natural and is really light and airy and is still really fresh smelling for its age. This one opens with alcoholic and lemon dominant citrus blast that quickly gives way to a flowery note with a nice burst of clove and fresh cinnamon sticks. I never wore this before until I was middle aged, so I am probably one of the few reviewers here who has no associations with this (I don't remember any of the men in my family wearing it either). If the purchase exceeds the value of the voucher a payment will need to be made to complete the purchase.

It's a very nice mild fragrance that has carnation as its most dominant note, and that's pretty rare today--carnation has pretty much disappeared in recent years in both men's and women's fragrances, and more's the pity. Perhaps Old Spice was once sold at that level, then it's current makers decided to slide it downmarket. I never put fragrance on my clothes, only my skin, and with Old Spice it seems to transfer from my skin onto my shirt and last forever. This is one one of the first aftershaves I ever bought as a teenager back in the mid '70's when I was 14/15 and had less hair on my face than my mother. When men were men, boys were boys and girls were girls, it's getting so mixed gender now what's it going to be like in another twenty to forty years?This would always be the aroma coming from my parent's downstairs bathroom every morning as I walked out the front door for school. Now that you know it's grandpa's scent you look at it as old and outdated but if granda wasn't here your existence would be a solid zero. The reformulated aftershave 'sparkles' a bit more here, with a peppery note of dry cedar and less musk). A traditional sailing ship is still the trademark for Old Spice and that imagery is instantly recognisable both on the classic colognes and aftershaves, and the more modern designs on the shower gels, deodorants and scents.

However, I can see why this was originally marketed to women in the 1930s (but then re-packaged and marketed to men), because honestly. I saw him putting it on along with an aftershave one morning when I was getting ready to go to school.Top notes are Nutmeg, Star Anise, Aldehydes, Orange and Lemon; middle notes are Cinnamon, Carnation, Pimento, Geranium, Heliotrope and Jasmine; base notes are Benzoin, Vanilla, Musk, Tonka Bean, Cedar and Ambergris. Something that just about any man or woman could enjoy wearing once in a while, as I most certainly do. The scent was very nice, very sweet, soothing and a fragrance that is clearly meant for men to wear while a loved one hugs them. It's sweet and delicate and a scent you don't mind getting on yourself when you hug or hold the person wearing it. 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.

but this is the cologne I want my son or daughter to remember me by to pass on the tradition that has been passed from generation to generation.

If your frag is of the oriental, woody, leather, animalic family, then OS can be the deodorant that gives protection without overshadowing or competing. After reading a recent (positive) review of the current spray-cologne rendition of Old Spice (sold alongside the aftershave, in a plastic bottle with an atomizer), I thought I'd gamble ten bucks and give it a try.
