It's not an perfect match but it's not bad and cheap enough to give it a go.
It almost begs belief P&G haven't reformulated Old Spice to be like the original, well unless the new formulation is actually more popular than the original version.The last bottle of OS AS I bought was made in India by Rubicon circa 2012 and it smelled exactly like vintage. However, there have been changes in India I read and I fear the formula has since been reformulated. I had a tube of their shave cream from then as well and it smelled/worked great. I don't like the current P&G OS AS as it has been reformulated and smells sweeter w/o the deep rich spiciness of the past.
For a shave soap that smells like the original go here:
Stirling Soap Co Stirling Spice Shaving Soap, 5.8oz | Maggard Razors Traditional Wet Shaving Products
They are going to make it as cheap as they can, plus some of the original ingredients are now verboten for the Euroweenie laws I'd wager.It almost begs belief P&G haven't reformulated Old Spice to be like the original, well unless the new formulation is actually more popular than the original version. ..
Not impressed with it, from a purchase a couple of years ago.
Those were the 2 creams I bought in India! I used them again recently, and like yourself I wasn't very impressed with them.To be honest they are not very good, I have other Shaving creams from India and apart from Old Spice and Dettol I am happy with them. Old Spice creams are a bigger disappointment because as well as the performance is not good the scent is not like an Old Spice.
SW17? I used to live in Valnay St between 2007 and 2008Those were the 2 creams I bought in India! I used them again recently, and like yourself I wasn't very impressed with them.
What are the other Indian creams you have used and liked? I have a tube of Vicco, I used it once and I think I liked it, I should use it again. One of the few creams I can get on the high street where I live in SW17.
