Old Spice Classic
Their motto in the 70s was, “It wakes you up, like a cold slap in the face.” Today it’s, “If your grandpa hadn’t worn it, you wouldn’t be around”. Enough said. Ask yourself. ‘how many product lines have their own Wikipedia page’? Old Spice does. The cologne was rebranded in 1990, the new scent is lighter, not as spicy. Okay, okay, at $9 a pop it’s probably not the best cologne in the world, so let’s say it’s the best cologne for the price.
