Old Spice aftershave - A personal review

Introduced by Proctor and Gamble in 1837, Old Spice has been making women go weak at the knees for generations. Its opening notes at first appear to be pure florality, but that initial impression is premature, as the floral notes are submerged beneath an intoxicating amalgam of oakmoss, musk, vanilla, amber, carnation and orris root. Indeed, I was quite unprepared for the overpowering scents of musk and orris root, and was left questioning my wisdom in donning such a potent cologne before the midnight hour. Wearing it in the local bookmakers I noticed both teenage girls from council estates and baronesses alike, swooning with hormonal weakness for the distinctive soft wood accord of the drydown; the musky notes making them almost bathetic, helpless, intoxicated. The tertiary phase of this potent pheromonical compound appears exotic, almost Eastern, suggesting late nights on Thai jetties, or Siamese adventures in Leyton Orient. Famous wearers of Old Spice include Albert Einstein, Dave Lee Travis, Mao Tse-Tung, 7/8 of Showaddywaddy and Margaret Thatcher.

Well, now, I never viewed old spice in quite those terms. I live in a breezy area and I always thought it was the wind that almost toppled the ladies. Old Spice may be the reason. I did slide into a booth next to a great looking chick the other day and she pecked me on the cheek. The she said, "Wow, you smell good... I mean really good. Not sure what I was wearing, though. Dang it.
