    For those who are interested, Shulton of India also still makes Old Spice Fresh Lime, which I've heard was also a great fragrance, but has been dc'ed by Proctor & Gamble in the US unfortunately.

    What I've read is that Shulton of India has the rights to the old formulas of Old Spice, Fresh Lime and Old Spice Musk, and they manufacture them using the old formulas. I'm assuming P&G sold the rights to these old formulas to Shulton of India, sort of like how they sold off the rights to Blue Stratos.

    I wore Old Spice (Shulton's), and nothing else but Old Spice for years, but the stuff they try to pass as OS today is nothing like the original and I haven't use it in years. Once in a while I pick up a bottle from the shelves at the supermarket or drugstore and give it a try, and everytime I get the awful smell of the PG's Old Spice which is revolting to me.
    I'll try to get the Indian stuff and I hope it is like the original.

    I have seen the Indian stuff on ebay, but have always been nervous about the quality. I too have seen the lime (in a clear bottle like Old Spice White Water) and would like to hear what people think about it. I like the idea of a distinctly lime scent. The original one vies with Grey Flannel as my wife's favourite male fragrance.

    The Lime scent has gotten great reviews here. It's described as spicy lime. That sounds awesome.

    I'm really interested in the difference between the Shulton OS and the P&G version. I have both and, admittedly, the P&G does smell quite different when you sniff from the bottle but to me it smells very close to the Shulton when it's actually worn. I'd be interested in other people's experiences with the two versions.

    I have a small bottle of the Indian OS Lime that I bought after running out of the Shulton version. It's one of my favorites along with the original. To me, the Shulton and P&G original Old Spice versions smell only slightly different. The former is more spice and the latter is more sweet powder to my nose.

    Actually I need to correct myself: The Indian product is in an opaque white bottle, the vintage stuff is in the clear bottle.

    I have a soft spot for Old spice as this was the fragrance my beloved maternal granddad wore. It's not the smell of the current version. . This is a classic. Not many people wore it around me in my childhood. The popular masculine scents where I grew up were Denim - greatest aromatic chypre ever created and a powerhouse for me, Tabac, Jacomo, Eau sauvage. Old spice was on sale, but not many people wore it. The original Old spice is very complex - aromatic, ambery, spicy, woody, musky vanilic bomb. This one (original) and Denim are masterpieces with sillage and longevity. Those blends do not rival any niche or upper mainstream scent of today, they rule. Old spice is far superiour to anything I smelled out of Perfumerie generale, S. Lutens, Maitre parfumeur & Gantier and so on.

    Old Spice by Proctor & Gamble even is better than anthing I've smelled by Lutens. Actually, even Aqua Velva smells better than anything I've smelled by Serge Lutens. I'm not trying to be funny here.
