Behind The Butter

Upon My Heart

I’m sorry to break up the normal pattern of this blog, but I just have something resting on my heart right now that simply must be shared.

Old Spice man, you have successfully captured my heart. And my boyfriend’s, too.


My man smells very good and I attribute this to none other than Old Spice Swagger body wash, but we are both simply in awe of your chiseled abdominals and wondrous core figure. That being said, while we were in Yosemite, he did offer to carve me a canoe from a large old tree and build me a log cabin with his bare hands so I guess I have the best of both worlds. A modern day Almanzo, if you will.

I feel so much better now that my secret has been made known to the world. Good day, my friends.

    I determined several months ago that if my boyfriend doesn’t propose to me soon I am going to hunt down the Old Spice man and marry him. He is so suave! Plus, I can clearly tell that he is speaking directly to me in his commercials… obviously.

    Inspired post ;0. Old Spice man is a hot riot. Just love his original commercial, too.

    Adam is a doll!! Just as handsome and an athlete and techie/wine guy, too! One enticing combo!!

    My husband used some variety of Axe body wash when we first started dating and the combination of the Axe scent mixed with the Tide he washed his clothes in (I’m allergic to Tide if I wash my clothes in it and go out in the heat, but snuggling with my Tide-rinsed honey didn’t seem to hurt) and the fact that I was in awe over his chiseled country-boy back muscles and strong arms all together made it next to impossible to remove my sniffer from his personal bubble. Thankfully he didn’t have much of a bubble to begin with.

    My hubby wears Old Spice, it smells good but I tease him about it being an old man’s cologne (my grandpa wore it too)…

    Well, the boy is finally out of hiding. Kind of felt like I’ve been watching that show where the old man always looked over the fence but they never revealed his entire face (sorry can’t think of the name of it). Very handsome young man! Good job Jenna! He should be proud to have you too.

    I am rather embarrassed to admit this but I use old spice roll-on deodorant FOR MEN. Yes – I am a female. I find that this is the only deodorant that I have ever used that does not start “not working” after a month or so and it is the only deodorant that stops me from smelling all day, even after a long run. It does not make me smell “manly” either. Perhaps I should do an “Old Spice Woman” ad?? Ha ha!!!
    PS: Your boyfriend is a cutie….Love a man in a suit and glasses….and OLD SPICE of course! 😉

    As you have done so many times, Jenna, you made my day. I am a PhD student (read: I live under a rock) and somehow did not know about the Old Spice Man. His YouTube account has changed my life. Brilliant, seriously.
    Love that the boy came out of hiding. It’s fun to finally see who it is who clearly makes you so happy.
    Oh, and if you’re ever in Berkeley again, check out Cafe Intermezzo, on Telegraph between Channing and Haste. The. Biggest. Salads. Ever. that come with a ginormous slab of incredible honey wheat bread. And there’s a tree inside the restaurant, with Christmas lights on it. Peace/love/indoor forest? Yes.
