    Yes, original is very nice. You can't go wrong with Old Spice.

    I was hoping for an Aqua Velva. Just bought some today. Old spice is next on the list.

    I've had good luck finding products in shops nearby. If you are talking Old Style, Florida Water by Murry & Lanman, and 4711 - a German cologne from Cologne, Germany. Both are citrus and floral. The 4711 fades quickly and is stereotyped by Europeans as an old lady scent. Florida Water hangs on a bit longer, it's history involves Jamaican HooDoo.
    Then there's Pinaud products. I succumbed to peer pressure and purchased Lilac Vegetal, A.K.A - The Veg. I wasn't "Chosen" right away. Took several uses over a weeks time, after following other users suggestion of decanting into a glass bottle.
    If you haven't yet, step into a local Beauty Supply store. They may carry more variety than Walmart or CVS.

    Quite true. Perhaps after next summer(Happy 85th to Billy Mennen), I'll look for some original Old Spice for future summers. Haven't forgotten Fine.

    Where are you guys finding the original Old Spice? I remember the scent well and the stuff found on shelves now isn't the same. I would love to get my paws on some of the original stuff.

    Look on ebay or, I have it on authority that the Dollar Store has a spice aftershave that dupes the original Shulton formula very well.

    Can't say. I am unfamiliar with both actually. I will be posting a picture of the Dollar Store (or Dollar General??) bottle soon.

    My wife hates it though.
