Do you have a son or sons that have recently transitioned from “boyhood” to “manhood”? I remember when I was a girl, my dad would keep a classic bottle of Old Spice aftershave on the bathroom vanity. One or two splashes of that manly smelling scent on his hands and then splattered on his face and neck. That scent resonates with me today and I think about him each time I smell it.
Gifting Old Spice is a holiday tradition passed on from grandfathers to dads to sons – helping “smellcome” a new generations of boys to manhood across the world each year. The parental reaction to this masculine rite of passage; however, often results in a clash of differing opinions between mothers and fathers, as humorously illustrated in the newly released Old Spice “Dadsong”
Old Spice’s “Dadsong” Video:
At the center of the mom-dad debate is Old Spice Re-fresh Body Spray, the gift that keeps on giving one spray at a time with its patented sweat-activated Re-fresh Technology, ensuring “One Spray Lasts All Day” and bringing an end to the juvenile overspraying epidemic in this country.
When David was about 11 years old, he became more aware of girls and started to want to shower multiple times a day and wear cologne just like his dad. Thus began our journey into the “overspraying”. I would have to step back at times, walking down our hallway, simply because I was heading towards yet another fresh cloud of “oversprayed” Old Spice that David put on. “Where are you going?”, I would ask. “Heading to Jimmy’s”, was his response. Of course, I know Jimmy had two older sisters and was most likely the reason for this 11-year old to bathe himself in cologne.
As time went on, David found that you can smell great, manly and have the right amount of scent applied without a looming cloud of cologne over you as he went everywhere.
