Quick Picks: Rare P&G Bottle, Sample Bottles, Aerosol Cologne, Canada After Shave, Store Testers, Spray After Shave & Cologne, Sensitive After Shave
I picked this bottle up several years ago and have never seen one since nor do I know its history or purpose. This bottle is in the classic Old Spice shape but has a metal flip top. Embossed on the bottom is "OLD SPICE" around the edge, and in the center is a "P" inside a larger "G", which I interpret to be the Procter & Gamble trademark.

|This aerosol cologne for men sold for only a few years starting in 1964. It held 3.5 ounces of cologne (product id 3729).|
|I cannot date these very well. They are obviously different styles and therefore from different time periods. They have bi-lingual labels but are made for the Canadian market. Note the one on the left is the fragrance Leather.|
These pump spray testers date from the 1980s. They were placed on the shelves along with the product so customers could get a whiff of Old Spice.
|This store Tester delivered a shot of Old Spice Lime.|
These are examples of small spray cologne bottles. Both date after 1990. Note the bottle on the right is for the UK market and is priced in sterling.
In the early 1980s an alcohol-free "sensitive" formula was available.
