Old Spice Eau de Toilette for Men 100 ml
About this deal
Great for everyday use during the colder months, I personally wouldn't wear it during summer but that's down to preference. I detected aldehydes but they are gone faster than you can say "aldehydes in women's perfume like Chanel No.
Old Spice is a bit weaker, and the notes are a bit more bunched together, while Viking is stronger and more airy if that makes sense. 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 was still early on in my fragrance journey (well in a way I still am but I was totally novice then.If one had to put only one cologne into a time capsule to describe the American male, it would have to be Old Spice, so that in the future, when mankind is long gone, an alien being from outer space can smell it and know what a man smelled like back on earth. Perhaps Old Spice was once sold at that level, then it's current makers decided to slide it downmarket. I'm a very feminine woman in some ways, but there are several very "manly" fragrances I absolutely love to wear, and this is one of them. 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.
Just because it reminds you of a dad or grandfather doesn't mean it's always a bad or dated fragrance, it could be that they had good taste, lol. It is mild, slightly soapy and easy to wear, without being overpowering or harking back to the classic Old Spice.This scent is not just about how wonderful it smells but about the angelic power that it has to evoke a far off distance special time of Father and Son. So if I want an amber based fragrance on a hot summer day that isn't the least bit cloying then Old Spice is still my go to fragrance. If the Rubicon formula had a better base with darker powder notes, it would be spot on the same as Shulton, although I still wonder if the top notes aren't too creamy.
Old Spice (Original) is my father's fragrance of choice though he uses the after shave far more so than this. 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. As the fragrance settles some floral notes come through but the fragrance continues to be warm, spicy and a little powdery. Wear this legendary fragrance daily, on any occasion, because it has always been there and its excellent hold will make it never leave you. For example, some top note citrus scents smell stronger immediately upon application, while a lavender middle note may be sensed after some time from application as the top note evaporates.This happens with many other fragrances to be honest, with people writing about formulations not more on sale and so on. The reformulated aftershave 'sparkles' a bit more here, with a peppery note of dry cedar and less musk). This ties into the nautical theme of Old Spice quite nicely, but pictures of hot peppers associated with Old Spice are misleading and inaccurate. It represents every 2 week haircuts for men, shaving as an art, sacred weekends, comfort knowing Dad was in charge and the bogeyman could not cause any harm. As I have already said, this cologne while not a classic men's formula of darker deeper woods green notes or tobacco or spices, much less musk or leather, it's a masculine scent for a male who doesn't particularly care for cologne and would wear this after a shower to smell good for any occasion.
