Didn't Get A Father's Day Gift? Let Old Spice Help

Listen to this article

Old Spice as come out with three new scents for their bar soaps: Pure Sport, Swagger, and Fiji.  Here’s the run-down:

Pure Sport

Probably the strongest scent of the three, I find it smells “soapy” and “powdery.” But the scent itself doesn’t linger too long.  For me this has performed well as a deodorant soap.

Swagger

With a “woody” or “evergreen” scent I find it’s not quite as strongly scented as Pure Sport,  but the scent lingers longer.  I think this a very masculine scent.

Fiji

I find this an interesting, “layered” scent: it is initially a tropical floral, then becomes almost “fruity.”  The smell doesn’t linger very long at all and is probably best as a “family-friendly” soap.

All these soaps perform well though: they lather quickly and clean thoroughly.

Giveaways!

Old Spice was very generous with me, sending a bunch of bars in each scent.  So let me pass their generousity on so you can try these soaps for yourself!  I’m giving away five sets of soaps (one bar with each scent).  And one lucky person will get an Old Spice “Captain’s Kit” consisting of Swagger bar soap, a “clipper ship” logo t-shirt, a Seaman’s Flask, and a dopp kit!

  1. I like that shirt, and I like it when my husband smells good, so hopefully we win this one. 🙂

  2. My wife (a fan of things nautical-themed) would love me in that t-shirt. Count me in, please.
    Related question: have you ever reviewed the made-in-India Old Spice shaving creams (available at West Coast Shaving)? I’m planning to make one (or more) of those my next acquisition, but would be curious to hear other’s opinion(s) of them…

  3. Disappointed with the soap; it dried out my aging skin. Love the tee-shirts; I bought two at Walmart for $6.95 each. A tribute to my dad, an Old Spice guy, and to my good memories of the aftershave, shave cream, and soap-on-a rope when I wore a younger man’s skin.

  4. I’ve been using Old Spice bodywash in the Denali scent for quite a while. It has been a very welcome improvement over the “generic soap” scent I had previously subjected myself to. It’s also much more masculine than many of the scented offerings from other brands. Although I’ve really enjoyed the scent, I’m looking to branch out…
    I have also been considering a return to my bar soap roots, as I’ve been waxing a bit nostalgic as of late…
    Next time I’m shopping, I’ll attempt to sniff out a bar of Swagger, as it sounds like just the thing to fit my personality.

  5. been an old spice fan since i was a child watching my uncle shave. still use it to this day.
