And now I have "it".

For the past 5 or 6 years my daily go-to scent has been Polo Blue (and before that, starting in the mid 90s it was Polo Sport). Like with any product that you use on a daily basis, things can get a bit boring. So I decided to mix things up.

Continuing with my Old Spice brand loyalty, I figured why not kick it old school with something that's been around for generations*? If Bruce Campbell can get paid to endorse the aftershave, then it's good enough for me. So I went to the store and picked up a buoy-shaped bottle of their Classic scent.

It's actually a lot less spicy and more powdery smelling than I anticipated it would be. But I dig it and will keep it in my rotation so as to shake things up a bit. I just wish it was made with bits of real panther.

*Though I've read that the formula was tweaked once it was sold to Proctor & Gamble.

Old Spice!? I love that you are keeping it real. Maybe they'll stumble upon your blog and send free stuff. Also Polo Blue is an excellent choice.

I hope so! They had a great tagline a few years ago, something like "If your grandfather didn't wear it, you wouldn't exist."

I always thought that was funny.
