IMHO, there is a lot of irresponsible writing out there regarding vintages that ignores very real issues such as maceration and note degradation.

That was my first foray into Old Spice, and I liked it but fragrances really didn't move me the same way as they started to later on when I got into them when I was a teenager.There's a powder that comes out of this scent which I think combined with aldehydes make it unisex and very easy for women to wear as well. It's not as strong as it was back in the 70's and 80's and it does smell more unisex then I remembered it, but that maybe because our perceptions about fragrance have changed over the years. This fragrance has stood the test of time, and although I don’t have the older variations on hand, the newer one reminds me of CK Obsession but better.

All I can say is if you're a young guy and you manage to pull off wearing this perfume, then you're going to go places. I was still early on in my fragrance journey (well in a way I still am but I was totally novice then.Although it shares notes of cedar and lemon with the original, it also has lime, blackcurrant and rose to give a just-clean scent that is refreshing and suitable for men of all ages. If you think of this not as your grandpa but as a work-friendly oriental (Opium over talc) it is actually quite companionable. This is very pleasant and vaguely masculine, but would not smell out of place on a lady who enjoys it.

I also remember that when my grandpa died, one of the things that was given to me was his old glass bottle of Old Spice. But it's been used by many generations of men for the most part of the 20th century and beyond and will continue to do so and for good reason! My father wore this as his signature and growing up, our rooms were upstairs and all I could smell in the mornings was Chock Full O Nuts coffee and Juicy Fruit chewing gum.The modern OS aftershave is much, much better and more in the style of the Shulton compared to the modern EDC, but it just doesn't last as long. 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.

This was the standard aftershave scent of my father, my uncles and a many other men who were around the house when I was young. 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.I love the looks on people's faces when they compliment me on my scent and I tell them it is Old Spice. It is also misleading, just think of the poor beginner approaching Le Male today after reading marvels from someone owning a 1999 bottle. Especially nowadays, young people (men/women) don't appreciate this particular smell as they feel it's a bit too "old" and "strong".
