Old Spice and I have a long history that dates back to my childhood when the first and only cologne I used to religiously buy my dad for Father’s Day, his birthday and Christmas was Old Spice.
I remember that every time my late father was about to unwrap one of my gift-wrapped boxes of Old Spice he would turn to me, chuckle and say, “ah, let me guess what’s in this box? Ahhhhhh…Old Spice!” The moment he would tear the gift open, revealing our fateful favorite cologne, we would both share a laugh. Old Spice was a 1-2, father-son thing for us.
As I hit my teen years I too gravitated to Old Spice cologne and later as an adult, when the anti-perspirant and deodorant finally came around, I didn’t just reach for the Old Spice brand, I rushed for it! I ran to it because I knew that if it was Old Spice it was going to feel fresh, clean and, yes, funny as it may sound, MANLY like my dad and I. Now there’s even a body wash, which I also regularly use, and a 2+1 shampoo and conditioner, which I haven’t tried yet and much more.
Earlier this year my wife made the innocent mistake of buying another deodorant brand for me and I was so put off by having to use it that she recently replaced it with a variety pack of FIVE Old Spice scents. Maybe a part of why I use so much Old Spice brand is because of my childhood (after all, we Latinos are very “brand loyal”) but for me, bottom-line, it comes down to two things: my deodorant and body wash have to smell and feel very fresh. Old Spice does that for me and through many trials of different brands I can say it’s my personal favorite.
That family tradition now continues with my 14-year-old son Jonathan who my wife occasionally scowls for stealing my Old Spice. She now buys him his own cache of Old Spice products.

Speaking of refreshing, I really love the work Old Spice has been doing with their quirky TV commercials. The recent “Head-to-Toes” line of TV ads with the “Mandroid” who promotes the “manliest, most irresistible “head to toes freshness” on the planet are hilarious in a viral, must-watch kind of way.
