For over 75 years the folks over at Old Spice have been providing men with quality grooming products to help keep us looking and smelling our best. I remember growing up watching my father use Old Spice products and as I got older and had conversations with other guys, I knew that their older brothers, uncles, fathers, and even some grandfathers had used some form of Old Spice. The brand represents an American tradition that not many brands can claim.
I remember Old Spice’s aftershave trademark white bottle being one of my first experiences with a grooming product. In fact, ironically it was after using it that I realized that after-shave burned like hell. Is it just me or did anyone else get no warning?! After that I vowed to never use after-shave again. Thankfully, I somehow managed to get over that initial sting and went on to develop a long-lasting love affair with Old Spice products and their deodorant carried me through most of my smelly high school years.
Old Spice has continued to further expand their product line up with body sprays of some of their favorite scents (Fiji, Swagger and Bearglove to name a few), some of which I reviewed the bar soap versions a while back. The new body scents utilize a new Re-fresh technology that promotes all day odor protection.
But how does Re-fresh technology work exactly? Whenever you feel yourself getting a little sweaty the Re-fresh technology does the heavy lifting and reactivates the odor protection, giving you an extra boost of manliness just when you need it. I most recently used the Bearglove scent on a long night out dancing and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. I came home in the early morning hours still smelling pretty good. Bearglove is a new scent from the “Wild Collection” which boasts a warm masculine scent and it is my new favorite. I personally find Swagger to be a bit assertive while Fiji is a little more refreshing than the others. Luckily for you, you’ll get a chance to win all three in the giveaway below!
Just like the Art of Manliness, Old Spice represents an American tradition of emerging manhood. With their new modern body sprays Old Spice ensures the brand will continue to greet young men into adulthood for years to come. Smellcome to manhood.

Quintessential man-brand Old Spice has brought us good products and hilarious commercials for years and now the brand has launched a line of bar soaps for the guy’s guy who just can’t bring himself to use bottled shower gel.
Growing up, using Old Spice was almost a rite of passage. Whether it was the deodorant or after-shave, just about every guy I knew also gave it a try and I’m sure not much has changed these days. I bet you would be hard pressed to find any guy who hasn’t tried Old Spice at least once.
For me, the deodorant worked for many years until I began to try out many other products out of curiosity. Fortunately, for me (and you) Old Spice provided me some of their newest bar soaps to review. So without further adieu, here are my two cents…
Swagger – This was the first soap that I was able to use from the pack that Old Spice sent my way. What I love about it is the great scent which makes it almost unnecessary to wear a scented deodorant. It’s a strong, masculine scent that lingers, in a good way. It almost guarantees you a bundle of compliments.
Fiji – Personally, I’m a little partial to Fiji’s lighter scent that smells like you’ve traveled off to a far away land. This one packs some serious shower relaxation points.
Pure Sport – A classic scent that personally reminds me of the Old Spice deodorant that I used back in the day. It’s definitely a great one to use in the warmer summer months as it has that clean, fresh scent that can be so important on those crowded subway cars or sweaty locker rooms.
Old Spice has definitely been one of my go-to brands in the past and the new bar soaps perform well by working up a pretty serious lather so you know they are putting in some work. My one point of feedback/criticism is to make sure that you moisturize right after showering. While this is a pretty general rule of thumb for me, I found that the Old Spice bar soaps also tend to be a little drying as they use harsher surfactants than, let’s say, a natural or vegan soap. All in all, Old Spice delivers a consistent product that will definitely work in a pinch. The variety of scents are great as it can help you pick out a signature smell that will have people asking you, “What do you smell like?!”
And have you seen this commercial? Hilarious.
