Old spice aroma

Not that it helps ... at all ... but Wickham's Spice Trade back in the old Super Smooth line was a close one. I really enjoyed that soap, but the Spice Trade had a lot of vanilla in it which is quite unstable in soap, and so the soap kinda went icky. You'll be lucky to find anything second-hand as I don't think I've seen mention of Super Smooth for ... literally years!

My old collection:

As you were, fellows. Practical suggestions.
Dash you Paul, for reminding me of the glory which was SouthseaSpray. How I miss that fragrance.

I had a tub of that back in the day & traded it went it went icky. Smelled great.


FWIW and for those who didn't know, Old Spice was originally a toilet water for women.
I have say upon entering the loo after the wife has been in a while, not once have I sniffed the air and thought nice Old Spice aroma in the air :unsure:
Myself on the other hand always leave it smelling great, well to my nose anyway. :ROFLMAO:(y)

Darron did do a (limited run?) South Sea Spray in 1912. I have a tub! Lovely stuff, like fresh cotton sheets billowing in the wind. Just like vintage Rolls Razor soap.
Gosh, thankies ever so Paul, cheering me up no end knowing you’ve got a tub ! What’s that old saying, “No loss what a m8 gets”.

Sheridan's, too ... probably more so than Spice Trade. That's the darkest in the pictures above.
To me, the problem with Super Smooth was the abundance of stearic acid. Spice Trade or Sheridan's as a hard soap would have been a winner. I still have a bit of the hard soap samples I received, which I mashed together as they smelt so similar. The smell, still, is superb ...

I feintly remember it being labelled (stamped) 1902. I should see what samples of that I've got up in the loft.

Bought a bottle of 1970s Old Spice After Shave and removing cork from bottle scent is not bad but on me five minutes later Ouch! smells like old geezer.
