saw their own bottle when going to pick up a prescription the other night and snapped a photo of it.

smells like the old spice sitting next to it and it's $4 cheaper.

That looks like a good sale. I'd load up.

I don't have a Rite Aid in my area but I will check with CVS. I believe they are the same company.

I'm about 99.9% sure that the RiteAid product is the exact same product that is available in Family Dollar Stores mfg by ViJon for about $1.75 a bottle.

When you go back, read the bottom of the bottle.
If there is some kind of VJ logo, it's probably the same product.

See the 4th bottle in my attached pic purchased at Family Dollar.
Looks familiar doesn't it?

Shop Rite, a New Jersey area supermarket has the same bottle for theirs. Not bad, I added it to some melt and pour soaps I was experimenting with.

It's the same product. I bought it a few years ago after seeing the VJ logo on it.

Unfortunately there aren't any Family Dollar stores out here, so this is the best we can do.

Did someone say Ivy Club? Don't mind that Swarvoski Crystal handle, its got nothing on Ivy Club! Biggrin

Seriously though, most of the store brand knock offs are Vi-Jon, made here in the USA, I should note P&G has sued them in the past...

ViJon makes some good smelling juice. I pick up the Ivy Club at 'Fred's' which is a small retailer around here. I get that bottle for around $1.75 Smile

Needless to say I have 3. I do, however, like to transfer it to a glass bottle and then add a few drops of the real Old Spice cologne to it just to give it a little punch.

.....or you can mix the P&G with the Vi-Jon 50/50.

Less expensive and very close to the original Shulton.

I keep telling myself to buy some of the Indian Shulton OS from WCS, but that is a lot of pesos for 50ml.

I have all of the "old spice" varieties; Family Dollar (Vi-Jon), P&G and the real thing by Shulton from WCS. The Vi-Jon version does not have a lot of staying power although the scent is nice. I ordered 2 of the small bottles from WCS (they are the glass bottles of old). I also ordered the large bottle that is shown as an atomizer (written on the box) with a large red cap. BTW, the Shulton version says made in India and marketed by P&G, interesting. Anyway, my package arrived the other day and when I took out the box with the large bottle the box said "original" and not atomizer. And lo and behold, it was the full size bottle with the button stopper, not the atomizer, yippee! I suppose one of the reasons for the higher cost are the glass bottles.
