Yes, this is not bad at all, and in fact I'd much rather wear this than a whole lot of recent niche releases!

If you put this in a fancy "niche" bottle and gave it some French name you could get a lot more money for it. 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. This notice will be governed by and construed in accordance with English law, and any disputes relating to this notice shall be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England. Orange blossom, carnation, geranium, heliotrope, and I think a jasmine note is all thrown into the heart. I was still early on in my fragrance journey (well in a way I still am but I was totally novice then.It is also very much like L by Lolita Lempicka which I own, with the sandalwood, cinnamon, musk, Tonka, citrus and vanilla so any of you who lament never having got hold of that Unicorn - try Old Spice. He wasn't into scents the way we fragheads are and this, and I think Aramis or Hi Karate (can't remember for sure but I know I'm dating myself here) were the only scents he used.

Spicy, slightly cool and incredibly warm simultaneously, the perfume has oriental nuances that fascinate you, suggesting only positive emotions, so you will always be in the centre of events! This fragrance evokes nostalgic memories with its high-quality juice housed in unpretentious and affordable plastic packaging. The association with "older men" comes from the fact that this scent is older and used to be worn by our dads or grandparents. If memories from those parties are correct, this scent layers well with beer, good whiskey, unfiltered Chesterfield cigarettes and the smell of gumbo and barbeque. Old Spice for men was inspired by a colonial theme and the company's founder opted for a nautical branding.

I'll suddenly catch a whiff of this as I'm wearing it, and it feels like the ghost of a memory is walking beside me. It amplifies any unpleasant manly smell in the same manner when someone is very unwashed and tries to cover up the dirty odor by bathing in a sickly sweet, harshly nauseating, spicy scent. The dominant character of the cologne is cinnamon, carnation and clove, as it is in the contemporary aftershave formulation, but here it is supported by a deep, almost butter-rum blend of benzoin, nutmeg and star anise that is truly mesmerizing. Back in the 70's and 80's that would've been viewed as strange but you are right today as Tony Bennett would say "Anything Goes! 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.

The opening is aldehydes, most unusual for a man's cologne but it provides the scent with a startling freshness and invigorating zest.

It has a freshness and spice thanks to the lemon, orange and clary sage, a 'middle' of cinnamon and jasmine and basenotes which include musk, frankincense and cedarwood.

These dried berries, when ground up, smell like a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and black pepper. It brings me back to my toddler and preschool years because it smells sort of like the rubbery plastic on the plastic baby dolls with a kind of fizzy root beer and horchata smell. But I do take exception to people claiming that they are unbiased (see RckChk's lost/found post above, in all caps, no less! This is a photorealistic representation of a distinguished gentleman who doesn't bother trying designer scents out because he finds no reasons why. Some may turn their noses up against Old Spice due to it being a common and cheap fragrance, but for what it is it's actually a pretty good fragrance.This is one one of the first aftershaves I ever bought as a teenager back in the mid '70's when I was 14/15 and had less hair on my face than my mother. The reformulated aftershave 'sparkles' a bit more here, with a peppery note of dry cedar and less musk). It's a good cinnamon, which, later, mingles with vanilla, but it is that subsequent vanilla that dominates the scent in my opinion.
