Murphy and McNeil | Old Sport Shaving Soap

  • t’s funny how sometimes the most vivid aspect of a memory can be one of the simplest.  I was very young when the only grandfather I’ve known passed away.  I can’t tell you about any of the conversations we had, but I remember that my own father always seemed to be laughing when he was around.  I picture a very dry sense of humor, cracking jokes and leaving my dad in stitches.  I remember fishing!  He had a house near the ocean, and we would motor out and we’d hang hand lines off the side of the boat.  He always had his pipe.  My grandfather had a den downstairs with a small TV, and his chair… The fragrance of that pipe, that den, is what I remember more vividly than anything.  Right or wrong… to my memory… “Old Sport” is that fragrance.  Old Sport is not a tobacco scent per se, but it will remind you of one.  Tonka is a wonderful fragrance with a complexity of notes that will remind you of a very sweet tobacco.  For me, it brings me back to one of the most vivid memories I have of my gramps.
