Male grooming for guys of all ages
Old Spice brings authenticity, performance and confidence to male
grooming and offers a wide product portfolio for todays man

The Old Spice brand has been around
since 1937.
It was originally manufactured as an
aftershave by the Shulton Company
founded by William Lightfoot Schultz.

the product with colonial sailing ships as
a trademark.

in June 1990. They recently introduced

Wieden & Kennedy

To appeal to a younger crowd (12-34) and compete with the
new body sprays. Proctor & Gamble invested an estimated
$100 million with Portlands Wieden & Kennedy agency.
Wieden & Kennedy are known for their offbeat campaigns
for Nike, ESPN, Target and Miller High Life.

Experience Is Everything
After landing the Old Spice account
Wieden & Kennedy started the
Experience Is Everything campaign
relying on Heritage and Humor.
To differentiate themselves from Axe,
W&K have taken a different angle
towards the same niche by using the
Old Spice brand legacy as a benefit
rather than a burden. The product is
authentic rather than trendy,
masculine rather than metro and old
school rather than just old.

Experience Is Everything
They have linked the brand to worldly experience, and stated
that its users are not swayed by fashion but by quality.
Masculinity and classiness is strongly emphasized in both their
print ads and TV spots.

Their nautical themed website features links to product information,
news, and a page to test your experience to see if you are worthy
of wearing Old Spice. For those who are not a 100% experienced
man they offer advice on things like giving a good handshake and
how to avoid getting singled out in a police lineup.

Old Spice found itself losing momentum over the past few years
as Axe grooming products, owned by Proctors rival Unilever,
have been experiencing rapid growth.
In the 90s they saw their brand image was deteriorating, seen
as less sexy. Who wants to smell like their grandfather when
these other ads are promising instant female attention?
