    I've always associated Old Spice Original with old men as well. My great uncle wore it. I realized that I liked how it smells and bought some underarm deodorant and definitely like it. But I'm 63 so it goes well with my age.   icon_lol.gif

    Even better is English Leather. I remember getting one of those toiletry kits when I was in high school; English Leather cologne, aftershave, and soap. I've always loved how it smells. But their deodorant is not easy to find even though it's still being produced.

    I used to love Old Spice After Shave from the time I was a teenager. What my Dad used. We didn't have all these brands marketed by fashion clothes designers.

    I also used Old Spice cup soap for my shaving mug. Even the mug itself was from Old Spice, had their iconic clipper sailing ship on it. And I used their stick deodorant. If I use any scents I think they should all be the same.

    Problem with the deodorant, though, was that it caked-up on my shirts. Like hard cement, and visibly stained them in green. No suggested removal methods would dissolve it. I lost some nice shirts I liked from it. I suppose due to my body chemistry, but I still had the problem.

    So I gave up on Old Spice. Still like the scent, would go back if I could.

    I've started using Old Spice deodorant. It is a very old company but a few years ago they updated their advertising and product line and it is now again an industry leader.. And the product works well. And it's cheap. Good combination.

    I do OK with a clear gel deodorant, not a pasty white stick. Those white sticks often leave marks all over your Ts or polo shirts when you pull them on over your head. I'll hafta check what current Old Spice deodorant types are available in this market area. I might try a gel if they have one.

    Of course, I can remember when the first popular deodorants were in spray cans, like from Gillette. Are they even made anymore?

    "Does anyone use any products from Axe or Old spice?"

    Old Spice (and later, English Leather) were the first popular commercial male fragrances in the US. Prior to this, dudes used bay rum for everything.

    Yes, have used both...but not recently. My skin is super-sensitive, had to stop using the Axe product.

    I used Axe Kilo antiperspirant but they don't seem to make it anymore. I'm currently using Axe Signature Air antiperspirant because it advertises as leaving no white or yellow marks. So far no complaints.

    I use a lot of Old Spice products, mainly their body washes, they all smell really good, distinctive. I really like the one they advertises for Sport use, and I've been trying out other brands to see how they compare to Old Spice, so far, I can't tell the difference.

    Never really used either although I like the scent of both - for different reasons. I'm a Canoe guy all the way. I have always loved the smell and although it's a little hard to find, I manage to find it when I need a new bottle.

    It's a cheap fragrance. All the scents smell the same with the chemical, gassy smell. Fucking gross. Axe products are cheap shit and I wouldn't dare use them on my body.

    Here's the aftershave I used from the time I first started shaving at 12. Whether using an electric or a safety razor, you always slapped on an aftershave.

    Of course the bottles didn't have all this French crap on them, solely English. But looked just the same in milk glass, with that stopper in them. I believe supposed to evoke a buoy.

    But a bit problematic when I enlisted in the Army, and living out of a duffle bag. The glass bottles were too heavy & fragile, and the stopper not secure enough. Although you could jam it down pretty snug, it still wasn't very confidence inspiring.

    Later as an Officer living in private quarters I returned to Old Spice bottles, but still wouldn't travel with them. And finally abandoned aftershaves altogether. Not very soldierly. Nor suitable for camping, or traveling cross-country by motorcycle, where weight & space are also critical. But today... yeah, maybe I should look at it again.

    Can't stand the smell of that cheap perfumy stuff. Every time I smell that Axe body spray, I look around to see where the odor is coming from and it's always some douchey looking metrosexual behind me. I actually like the way a clean man smells. The only thing scented I use is a good quality soap that's lightly infused with a natural essential oil.

    Seems like a bunch of guys who use Axe don't know when to take their fingers off the trigger. I used it throughout college and I'm not proud. Keep it light; no need for crop-dusting. Using the spray was certainly easy, though. Now, I just go for whatever's affordable and gets the job done. Lately, that's been Old Spice. I'm not aiming for any particular smell other than "clean", though.

    Actually, when I want a change from Canoe, I use Joop. It would be interesting to hear what Import does use instead of him telling us what's no good.

    I always opt for a deodorant that is not too spicy or similar to the scent of 'Toilet air-freshener'. It must be slightly sweet and with a slightly herbal extract. I normally buy 'Revlon 24Seven' and for aftershave 'Brut'.

    I went to Dove for Men for soap & deodorant some years ago. For health reasons when I developed a severe rash using an antiperspirant from another company. And then I want all the scents to be alike. I'm not sure how it differs from regular Dove, I suspect just packaging or the perfume in it.

    There was a time back in the 60's when Old Spice, Aqua Velva, Jade East and Royall Lyme were the after shaves most guys liked - in ascending order - the best of those was - and is Royall Lyme (imo).

    In the 70's we began to see some other newer choices - Aramis, Pierre Cardin, Braggi, Givency, Paco Rabanne, Canoe, Polo and others I'm forgetting. Later, a lot more choices were offered. Then - people (clients, the general public) began to bitch and claim they were allergic or offended when they smelled after shaves or colognes, so many of us had to curtail our use of them.

    But to me and to my buddies here in California, Old Spice is something our great grandfathers wore - and most of us didn't use it.

    To me, the Old Spice scents all wear down and have the same fuel like scent after a couple hours. The only exception is the original Old Spice which definitely reminds me of my grandpa. I have experimented with all brands and have settled down on two:

    Antiperspirant: Dove for Men - Clean Comfort spray scent
    Deodorant: Axe Signature Series -Oud Wood Dark Vanilla scent (my bf also uses this)
