    A few weeks before my B-day last year (April 20TH) my very pregnant daughter (my grandson was born April 17TH) ask me what I wanted as a gift.

    I have everything - I just wanted a healthy grandson - but she insisted.

    So I said I needed an after shave that will make me smell like a grandpa -

    I figured Old Spice or Aqua Velva would be official grandpa after shave.

    She picked Aqua Velva Blue Ice- it was sort of a joke but I used it a few times and then started using it a lot of the time. It feels great after shaving .

    I just had my wife pick up a new bottle of Aqua Velva because I am almost out.

    Anyone else use an old school after shave?

    The new bottle of Aqua Velva says it is its 100TH anniversary.

    I have a number of flavors in the Powernoodle Scent Arsenal, including Old Spice and Royal Copenhagen. The latter was used by my father, so I often get a brain memory of him when I slap it on.

    Bay rum.

    That or a half gallon of Polo, matched with a teal or pink shirt, popped collar, pants with about two dozen pleats and some big hair.

    Back in the 70's~80's I'd switch between Aqua Velva and Old Spice. Late 80's it was Bay Rum and Pinaud. My wife hated Bay Rum so after a while I dropped that and stayed with Edward Pinaud Clubman unto today. And yes I am a grandfather soon to be X3. tom.

    I may want to give Pinaud a try - it may have been what my dad used - the bottle looks familiar.

    One of the regular patients I used to transport when I was a paramedic on the street used to drink Aqua Velva.

    <<< not a Grandpa, but during the week after showering when coming home from work, I started using some of these old school products. I.E. Old Spice, Aqua Velva, Brut, or Skin Bracer. Gives me a cleaner feeling and smell.
    I keep the good stuff for weekends and/or going out.

    My Grandfather used Lucky Tiger after shave that was bright blue...that smell and Sir Walter Raleigh pipe tobacco are two scents that bring back many memories.
