“You smell like a man today,” is what I sometimes tell my husband when he comes home from work. Work, by the way, means that he’s often crammed in a sardine container (aka a very old airplane) with more than 30 other bodies, for around 8 hours at a time. The heating on the plane rarely works, their air conditioner is always on the fritz, and shoot, we’re always just lucky if the actual airplane works. Needless to say, he often smells very “manly” after he flies.
You know when he’s also pretty fresh on the “manly” side? When my husband isn’t off playing with the military or being super dad, he’s in his man cave (aka, the garage), building stuff…with his bare hands. Talk about doing something manly! No, but really. He loves woodworking, and instead of using all electric tools, he uses hand tools. Putting his blood, sweat, and tears (okay, it’s usually only sweat), into projects is his way of relaxing.
Now, before you think “manly” means “stinky” in this context, it doesn’t, because that’s where Old Spice comes into play. We’ve* been loyal to the red-bottled collection since before we got married, and their latest innovation, the Hardest Working Collection, takes their odor-blocking and sweat protection to a whole new level.
*I say “we” because ever since that one time he bought a scent that I didn’t care for, he’s let me pick out the scents. And ladies, if you’ve never really smelled Old Spice’s scents, I encourage you to give them a whiff, because they smell sooooo good. True story: you know how some women snuggle up with their man’s T-shirt when they’re away? I often use his body wash when he’s TDY or deployed instead of mine since it instantly smells like him. But I digress…
He’s currently working on making us a new table, or he’s refurbishing an old one, rather. I found a kitchen table at a yard sale for $10 and couldn’t pass it up. We already have a tall table, and I’ve been itching for a lower one, so this is perfect. He’s sanding it down (well, actually, sanding didn’t work, so he’s literally taking matters in to his own hands and using his plane to get rid of the crazy sealant they put on top), then we’re going to stain the top for a nice, dark, finish. The legs are white, so the dark top with the white legs will look really great.
His workshop is his happy place, and what makes me happy is that he comes back inside always smelling…wait for it…legendary. True story: he came in from the garage last night and when he sat down next to me I told him how good he smelled. I kid you not, this was his response, “I can’t remember the last time I showered; I think it was like, four days ago.”
He said he’s been using the new scent I got him. Job well done, Old Spice, job well done. Now, not that I recommend that your man doesn’t shower, but if he’s short on time, Old Spice is there for
They have a stellar reputation for providing lasting performance for a man’s hygiene with product that actually smell delightful (or “manly” if you’re trying to describe it to your husband), but they actually took things up a notch with their latest high-performing anti-perspirants and body washes. The Hardest Working Collection delivers unparalleled performance for guys who demand more from their grooming products.
