Dating old spice bottles
It was launched under the name Early American Old Spice in 1937 by Shulton.I have a bottle of the toilet water, dating from 1960, when applied to my wrist, I can detect the loveliest marriage of roses and spices, it is actually quite exquisite and is an Oriental fragrance.The vanilla base holds it all together and makes me keep sniffing my wrist.If you haven't tried this yet, I highly recommend this perfume to anyone who likes Shalimar.Early American Old Spice was developed around a colonial theme.During the Depression, there was a growing interest in anything related to early America.Top 10 in no particular order: Amouage - Epic Man Montale - Black Aoud Montale - Aoud Lime Boucheron - Jaipur pour homme edp Hermes - Terre d'Hermes pure parfum Thierry Mugler - A Men Pure Malt Dior - Sauvage edt Rochas - Lui Davidoff - Cool Water Mancera - Cedrat Boise Just out of curiosity. If you can get a sample of the new one then maybe someone with the old may trade you half a sample to do a side by side. Ask around some vintage menfolk and you may find one of them still has some...
The motifs used reflect typical Pennsylvania German traditions of decoration.While the newer one is slightly sweeter, more powdery and even less lasting (I shamefully admit) than the vintage version, my opinion would still be: the difference nor the improvement from new to vintage are THAT pronounced, as to justify paying way more for the vintage version.I have both versions and the vintage smells a little better to me because it is a little little spicier and has a nice dirty vibe(jasmine I think), but it has worse longevity than the new formula.Although from memory that one was in a white bottle wasn't it?
