Random observation

Filed under: Colognes — Tags: — sankirnam @ 11:37 am

I just noticed that the fragrances used in the following 2 products are the same:

Hugo_Boss_Hugo_Man Old Spice Pure Sport

This is a testament to the absolute insipidity and lack of creativity of the folks at P&G fragrances as well as the genius of the marketing people; for those who don’t know, the Old Spice brand is owned by P&G, and the Hugo Boss perfumes are also made by them. It seems that the Hugo Boss Man cologne has (fortunately) been discontinued, since I had trouble finding it on Amazon. On the other hand, being able to reuse such a bland-smelling formula in an Old Spice body wash is no mean feat, especially since Old Spice is now undergoing renewed popularity thanks to some new marketing campaigns.
