Old Spice Swagger, Wolfthorn, Sport






Procter & Gamble is having a love affair with Aristotle in putting out these scents and marketing blurbs for men's fragrance brand giant Old Spice.

"Swagger body wash from Old Spice is for the man who holds the complete works of Aristotle in one hand, and a delicious sandwich in the other. Swagger’s subtle scent transforms your skin to feel like a smooth and hydrated playing field where confidence scores the winning touchdown." (Source: National Review Online)

This flanker scent to the original Old Spice has a traditionally masculine woody Chypre type of scent. It's a bit spicy like the original, and the heaviest/strongest of the 3.



"Who knew the wild scent of Wolfthorn Deodorant could help to battle stinky body problems? Maybe Aristotle or talking owls knew, but definitely not regular people or dumb owls. For a scent experience as rich and complex as a gilded Rube Goldberg machine, try the Wolfthorn collection in its entirety: Invisible Solid Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant, Deodorant, Body Wash, Body Spray, and Cologne Spray."

The notes I was able to find online for Old Spice Wolfthorn are: Citrus, passion fruit and mango, vanilla and musk

Yes, these are wolves that live in the tropics. I like this scent, very shared gender-like. I smelled the passion fruit and mango right away.



Ok, this one I haven't found being sold with Aristotle references, and I can't find the notes, but it smells like a fresh and pleasant Fruity Floral with citrus and a dry, cedary base (just my guess). It's also definitely very shared gender-like, reminiscent of a fragrance by Benefit (Laugh with Me, LeeLee?).
