Keeping Fresh With The New Old Spice (Plus A Giveaway)


Traveling all the time I always need to have my grooming arsenal stocked up and love testing out new products and collections. Having used Old Spice bath products before for the post-workout showers, when I was asked to partner with the men’s body care brand to try out there latest line, the Fresher Collection, I was more than excited to do so.

An extension of the Fresh Collection, one thing (or three) that the Fresher Collection does is introduces new scents to help men smell fresher than the great outdoors: Timber, Amber and Citron. A reason Old Spice has added more outdoors scents to the collection is due to studies they researched and proved the great outdoors and the fresh scents have the power to calm the mind and body.

Partnering with a leading neuroscience research firm, Old Spice put the new collection to the test to see if its scents have the same powerful effect, and the reported results from Old Spice show that the collection has the transformational powers to, “take your brain to the great outdoors, eliciting a more positive response than smelling nature itself.”

All five Fresher Collection scents are available in anti-perspirant/deodorant, deodorant, body wash and body spray. From the original Fresh Collection, Timber and Fiji also are available in shampoo and bar soap.

From the five scents, the Citron is my favorite for its green base notes mixed with citrus, lemongrass and sandalwood. I brought the Citron antiperspirant deodorant with me to Thailand, fell for it and will be stocking up soon. The main picture above is from a climb to the top of Tiger Cave Temple in Krabi, Thailand (over 1,000 steep steps to the top). Very powerful, the Citron helped me remain feeling fresh a bit despite melting during the climb up.
