So, I'm a sucker for the smell of Old Spice type cologne. I enjoy the scent, and I've worked my way up to a couple of scents after experimenting. Some people might say "why do you need more than one of the same cologne?" to which I might say "how did you get into my house?" Anyway, here's a breakdown of how the following ones compare, to me, left to right. "New" old spice scent (left most): To me, the "newer" one smells more powdery than the more classic old spice. The sweetness is right, but I get more powdery-ness off it, and the musks are more muted. "Older" old spice (second from the left): I received this bottle from my father. He doesn't know how many years he had it it in his closet, but it was still sealed. Definitely has none of the powdery notes of the "newer" scent. It's not overly biting on the nose, has a good sweetness of the amber to musk ratio. Stirling Spice (third from the left): While it doesn't have the "powder" elements I'm getting off the newer formula, it lacks a little of that sweetness to musk ratio of the "older" old spice. It's a little more biting on the nose, so the spicy elements are emphasized more for me. Aged Spice (Mama Bear Soaps) (last from the left): To me, this smells like a more intense version of Stirling Spice. They're both very similar, but with slightly different intensities. Due to that intensity difference, perhaps even a tad more spicy elements compared to Sterling. Depending on how they were sprayed, I might not be able to tell the difference if sprayed onto a sheet of paper. If I had to pick one, based on overall factors, I'd say the Mama Bear's Soaps one wins for me. It's cheaper than the Stirling, and a single spray of it has enough intensity to last me for a longer time. Considering they both smell similar, and are readily available / lack the powderiness of the newer one, I feel Mama Bear is the better buy here.
