It's subjective, but most folks here think that the Shulton is deeper and spicier than the P&G classic formula, that gets described as brighter, more floral and powdery.
It also varies from product to product. The P&G Classic Body Wash is very reminiscent vintage Shulton. The Classic body spray, now discontinued, is said to be in the same league. I've no experience with the spray, but really like the body wash. No doubt it will be discontinued shortly. I've also never tried the classic pit stick, but I've heard that it's close to the vintage scent.
The new classic cologne, to my nose, isn't bad but it's not like the Shulton version. It's clearly a lighter scent with powder notes that fade after a time. The new classic after shave is the worst offender, it's watery and floral.
Thankfully, Vi-Jon labs makes an aftershave clone that is close to the Shulton scent and dirt cheap. Check out your local dollar store.
As to soaps, Mama Bear has Aged Spice, and several members say it's very close to the Shulton scent. I haven't tried it but it's on my birthday wish list (Are you reading my posts, honey?). I've had good luck "spiking" glycerin soaps, and vintage Old Spice soap with either P&G or vintage Old Spice cologne. The vintage Old Spice shaving soap tends to lose the scent after a decade or so, it seems.
I haven't heard any reports on the Shave Den offerings.
