    I see people referring to Old Spice as "Shulton," "Classic," "US Version," etc. Does Shulton not make the new stuff? How can I recognize true vintage products when I'm antiquing? Some fellows have said the Dollar General version smells more like the older/original OS. Has that been your experience? Thanks.

    Proctor and Gamble bought Old Spice from Shulton in June 1990.

    I usually look for Shulton on the bottle. Also, the graphics changed slightly. Maybe someone who has a newer bottle can post a photo showing the difference.

    I’ve purchased Old Spice from India that is advertised as original Shulton formula but to my nose it’s more powdery than vintage original.

    I don’t know about the Dollar General copy, but the Family Dollar version is pretty close.

    Thanks guys. The "re-invented" is all I have access to right now.

    I'll check my stock - maybe you'll get lucky

    One of New Spice's scents-Hawkridge-smells pretty nice...a passable attempt to copy Shulton. Even though it's New Spice, I still may get it just for kicks. As some of you may know, where I'm concerned, if it doesn't say Shulton and says P&G instead, that makes it New Spice. To me, it's insulting to see P&G say "Established in 1938" on the New Spice bottles.

    To me the newer Old Spice doesn't have as strong a fragrance as the original Shulton version. They do smell similar.

    If it says Proctor &Gamble anywhere on it, stay away. They reformulated the Shulton Old Spice in 1993. There is a Shulton labeled Old Spice made in 1993, that is the new formulation, but it also says Proctor & Gamble on it. After that, Shulton no longer was written on the bottles.
