About this deal

The "pimento" in Old Spice is the dried berries of the plant known as Pimenta dioica, otherwise known as "Allspice. I never really knew what it smelled like until I got a new in package vintage bottle that isn't plastic. I am less fond of the dry down, as a very dry effect produced by synthetic Christmas potpourri cinnamon, a LOT of eugenol (clove) that to my nose sometimes seems a bit bitter and dark; this feels somewhat unbalanced in relation to the serviceable (even lovely) amber and musk in the far drydown. It's the kind of scent you don't mind being right at your face because it's not vulgar or too aromatic/strong.

Old Spice for men was inspired by a colonial theme and the company's founder opted for a nautical branding. This is compared to the American version, which in my view is a bolder composition, but overall both are recognizably Old Spice.If you're like me who wears jeans and a black t-shirt or a flannel shirt with chest hair clearly visible (and that's another thing. 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.

Fresh orange, and lemon amped up w/ aldehydes, a beautiful carnation supported w/ star anise, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pimento. If this is an "old man" smell then this is how I want to smell when I get old because it smells very nice. While certainly dated, it'll inevitably conjure up (hopefully) pretty good memories of grandparents and parents. I have developed my frag tastes quite a bit from that time but I still love to wear it on a cold crisp fall/winter day. 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.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. I have worn this fragrance for almost 45 years, whether the Original or newer Classic version, and in the fall/winter/spring, is worn as much as anything else I own, which is approaching three dozen colognes. I love the looks on people's faces when they compliment me on my scent and I tell them it is Old Spice.
