About this deal

Fresh orange, and lemon amped up w/ aldehydes, a beautiful carnation supported w/ star anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pimento. Sunday afternoons, Church, the feeling AFTER you come home from Church and can't wait to take off those restrictive Sunday suits and ties, baseball bats, junior league baseball, green grass, parks, the smell of the inside of dad's car, the smell of the garage, wooden tool boxes, TV dinners in front of the TV in the evenings. As I commented in a previous review, the current (plastic bottle) formulation of Old Spice significantly lacks the creamy floral-and-star-anise opening and heart notes of the original.

I love this aftershave and every time i reach for it in the bathroom cabinet I literally see my Dad in the mirror. Commonly used as a signature daytime scent, the fragrance features nutmeg, lemon, cinnamon, musk and cedar. It's warm and fresh at once, and even though it's cheap it smells like a working man who pays his bills and who loves to take care of his family, like my grandpa.The top notes contains nutmeg, lemon, orange, anise and aldehydes, the middle notes contains carnation, jasmin, geranium, cinnamon heliotrope and pimiento. Aside from the spices (I can definitely smell nutmeg and cinnamon), and the spicy floral element (carnation -- probably not the most popular note in modern times, but one I appreciate), I detect a hint of citrus and geranium. It's not fantastic and there's no wow factor about it, but it's a pleasant scent and one that can be used in many situations. I don't know anything about the current version, but the vintage after-shave lasts FOREVER on my skin.

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. This one smells very natural and is really light and airy and is still really fresh smelling for its age. 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. The association with "older men" comes from the fact that this scent is older and used to be worn by our dads or grandparents. 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.

If you don't have at bottle, or are just starting to get into fragrances, give this one a shot, it's stuck around this long so it must be doing something right. While we strive to provide accurate and helpful information, we cannot guarantee the complete accuracy or reliability of the AI-generated pros and cons.

Overall I like Old Spice even though the current plastic bottled formulation is weaker and lacks the performance of the glass bottled classic of 25 years ago.

Not like obsession spicy, but like when you open a fresh container of anise cinnamon and want it to waft all around you. Yes, this is not bad at all, and in fact I'd much rather wear this than a whole lot of recent niche releases! While this is a nicely balanced fragrance, overdoing it will likely do you in and those around you, at least for the first hour. It's most likely mean to be worn after you have showered while your pores are open and you shave in front of the mirror and then splash on some aftershave.

There is no doubt that the success of this scent over the years has inspired other fragrances within this genre. 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.One whiff of this and you'll understand why this essentially defined 2-3 generation of men's cologne in the US. I sometimes will work out on lunch break and use it before work and I find myself loving it more and more.
