    Wow..what an interesting thread. Read all 12 pages of it.

    I remember, some years back a friend came from the States, and he carried over his OS AS. I quite liked the smell, probably since I was so tuned into the OS here; I kept his bottle. Old Spice was/is practically the only after shave, till the economy opened up (maybe Blue Stratos but that was expensive), used for commercial and individual consumption. To be honest "we" would gift men, Old Spice after shave on special occasions, and would go out of the way to find the spray version -called- an atomizer here, for some reason...! Then the Gillette brand came in, and dynamics started to change. Many households would use OS as a minor disinfectant too...!

    Had a question: Old Spice has quite a high "burn" rate. Meaning: when applied, it usually sets the face on fire. How much variation was there in the different versions. Primarily the American and Indian versions. I cannot remember, to be sure, since I used the American version once..!

    My biggest laugh about OS is the wife made me give my collection to my Father when we got married 20 years ago cause I could not smell like her brothers or Dad. About 5 or 6 years ago I heard about FD or Dollar General Spice on a Cheap Drugstore Thread here. I got a bottle and started wearing it and the wife loved it on me. Sadly my Father has used up all that Old Spice I had collected back from 1976-1990. I had a real stash cause I got the AS/ Col gift sets from both Grandparents and from my Aunts and Uncles plus I got 10 sets when I graduated from HS in 1984. Dad is a OS / AV Ice Blue daily wearer.

    Does the Old Spice shaving cream in a tube contain tallow or is it strictly vegetable based?

    And the batch number on the spicier of the two is BW0S262. Here, I hope, are pictures of the two tubes that I have...

    It does not list tallow in the ingredients. Just a palm based stearic acid. It whips up a real good smooth lather with a strong scent of the old OS.

    I know this was a sticky, but it seems to have come unpinned. Thought this bump might be useful to some of the members asking about Indian Old Spice and others, like the variety from Germany and Canada. I hope no one minds my bumping this...

    August, should you mind, please let me know.

    I used Old Spice Original today, and I'm very glad that I did. While it may have been Clubman Friday, I was needing some Old Spice to see me through the rest of the long day.

    Thank you. I feel that this is an important thread and likely gets referenced by quite a few people. Having it as a sticky will make it much more convenient. :-)

    I think the Family Dollar Store version smells more like I remember than the P&G variety. Longevity seems weak with both, though. But it's hard for me to tell after 27 years of smoking and losing most of my sense of smell.

    My experience is that the P&G OS Classic lasts throughout the day--certainly longer than any other AS I own. I wonder how its longevity compares to the Shulton for those who've tried both.

    I have both and neither AS lasts very long but the P&G cologne seems to. But it's hard to tell since I seem to "get used to it" and the fragrance disappears.

    I've several versions of Old Spice spanning the early 60s to the present.
    Although the new P&G smells ok your nose immediately knows (hey! How about that?!)
    the difference between that and vintage. So I bought Indian OS and once sniffed
    i was taken back to that 'Dad Aroma' ....it smells exactly how I remember.
    Well, in my minds nose anyway.

    Congratulations! My bottles of Old Spice Original from India are my favorites of what Old Spice offers today. Let us know what you think and how they size up!
