    I actually own a vintage bottle of it, which at the time was called Early American (in smaller print) Old Spice (large print) by Shulton and it smells wonderful. i found it in a consignment shop for $1.00, and it is such a wonderful scent. Scent does not always have to be so involved, complex, or expensive to smell simply wonderful.

    I adore the aftershave, don't like the EdC very much though

    Is the vintage EdC closer to the current aftershave?

    I am not the hugest Old Spice fan, but I don't dislike it, and it gave us that recent fantastic series of ads with Bruce Campbell!

    Old spice(and eau sauvage) brings back pleasant memories of my grandfather. haven't smelled it in a while, but this thread is making me want to sniff if all over again.

    I like Old Spice as well. I probably wear it as often as anything else.

    Your bet could have been a lot worse. You could have had to wear Terre d'Hermes for a month.

    I would be a bit mortified to wear Old Spice, as nice as it is, I'm just not into smelling like my dead dad.

    I like Old Spice. I don't like any frag so much that I'd voluntarily wear it a month straight, but in rotation, OS is good to go. It reminds me of my childhood, yet it's more than nostalgia. It is simply a pleasant frag.

    I was out doing the weekly shopping and I picked up a new bottle of old spice aftershave as the one I used a few years ago belonged to my father.

    What's happened they have taken out the spicy bite from the fragrance and tamed the scent. The one I used some years ago must have been the old fragrance before they toned it down.

    Its still nice but they have weakened it, don't you hate it when they start messing around with the old classics. If it is not broken don't try to fix it.

    I stick more with the cologne. IMO. it's not simply stronger. I have come to the conclusion that there was also an attempt made to make it more of a bearable after shave...

    My first frag was a bottle of Old Spice and the matching aftershave, both in the old style ceramic bottles. It introduced me to the world of fragrance and for that it will always have a special place in my heart. It's a great frag and most people who mock it are doing so out of reflex instead of experience.

    I agree, the newer version is more powdery and lame, plus the sillage and longevity suck. Old Old Spice is way better.
