Old Spice Day

A cylindrical ceramic bottle with a long tapering neck and a metal stopper, with the image of a large sailing vessel and the brand Old Spice in red script.

June 19th is the anniversary of the creation of Old Spice by William Lightfoot Schultz. Old Spice was originally branded a scent for women, after the inventor’s mother’s potpourri.  In 1938, the company released various grooming items including aftershave lotion marketed to men. The distinctive pottery glass bottle originally portrayed either the Grand Turk frigate or the Friendship ship. At the Aurora Museum and Archives, we happen to have a bottle from the 1950s (994.31.53).
