    You know what? There's no mention of Shulton anywhere, however, I see no mention of the country of manufacture. All I see is that it's "distributed" by PG Cincinnati for the US and imported by PG Toronto for Canada. No mention of where the product is made (as opposed to my Canadian-made plastic bottle, which clearly states "made in Canada"). You can also see that the bottles were printed as bilingual for our province but the boxes weren't hence the french stickers added.

    Lol I see what you are doing there :)

    Vicar of Dibley ... "I can't believe that both I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and the stuff that I can't believe is not I Can't Believe It's Not Butter are both, in fact, not butter."

    Lol

    That's where I got that line! I'm impressed that anyone else remembered it. The Vicar was a terrific programme. Great ensemble cast, well written, even timely in its subject matter. And always funny as hell to boot.

    I totally agree. The I can't believe it's not butter sketch was from 1994. A timeless classic!!

    Old Spice was an inexpensive aftershave. If P&G thought they weren't realising enough profit and saw that their options were either to raise the price 3 or 4 dollars or to destroy the recipe to use cheaper ingredients I can't believe they didn't do any market research that would show that they would take a bigger hit by wrecking the product than by jacking the price. Their target demographic is loyal longtime users and the families of longtime users who can't think of anything else to get the guy who like Old Spice for Christmas. Their new customers are either the sons of longtime users or they are guys introduced to Old Spice when their prepubescent daughters give it to them for Christmas because they can't think of anything else to get for Daddy and this Old Spice stuff smells nice.

    I'm kinda shocked by the Flio America knockoff copycat. I'd never seen that before and assumed that all bottles like that were Vi-jon. I guess everyone should stick to Family Dollar and CVS when purchasing their knockoffs.

    Beware the Filo! The batch I encountered was pretty rough n tumble (bad).

    Many of the great classic men's colognes from the 1980's and 1990's were purchased by EA Fragrances (Eve Arden Fragrances) and most aren't nearly as strong nor as complex as the original scents. They sell for quite a bit less than when first introduced, but many of the top, middle and bass notes of the fragrances aren't the same.

    Amen to that. I used kanon AS and cologne from the early 70s through the 80s. It was great stuff. Bought a $6 bottle of the EDT that is produced in West Palm Beach a couple years ago and was disgusted. The worst part for me is that I can smell that they are trying to fake the old Scannon kanon but they're missing the mark.
