I used to wear Old Spice, but then the company decided it wanted to be young, hip, and cool and have cool new products, so I stopped using it. That’s the opposite of what I was looking for. Also, when they switched to selling Old Spice in cheap plastic bottles they also reformulated it, and it doesn’t smell the same.
I switched to Tabac Original by Mäurer & Wirtz, which was introduced in 1959 and still mostly has that “old man” association. Tabac is roughly the German equivalent of Old Spice (similar usage and longevity), but without all of the new body sprays and wacky commercials. Tabac also makes some of the best shaving soap around (and the soap has the same scent), so there’s no clash between the scent of my soap and cologne. I use an atomizer to give one spritz in the center of my chest. Because that’s usually covered by an undershirt, dress shirt, and tie, someone would really have to be all up in my wheelhouse to smell it.
