There is not much that can be said about a timeless classic. I grew up with my dad loving it (when he still shaved that is), I love it and my son will probable love it also. The fragrance profile on the original fragrance is top notes of Nutmeg, Star Anise, Aldehydes, Orange and Lemon; middle notes being Cinnamon, Carnation, Pimento, Geranium, Heliotrope and Jasmine and the base notes of Benzoin, Musk, Vanilla, Tonka Bean, Cedar and Ambergris.
Old Spice products were originally manufactured by the Shulton Company, founded in 1934 by William Lightfoot Schultz. A buyer at Bullock's in Los Angeles made Schultz aware of the emerging popularity of colonial-American style furniture, a trend spurred by the then-recent opening of Colonial Williamsburg. Shultz reasoned that an Early Americana-themed cosmetics line might also find favour. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York collection of early American objects provided a source of inspiration for packaging design for the fragrance, Schultz was inspired by his mother's potpourri, and as the result, the first Old Spice product in 1937 was a woman's scent called Early American Old Spice. The product was received well, and therefore was followed by Old Spice for men in 1938. The brand is currently owned by P&G.
