Old Spice wanted to broaden its target audience to focus on teenage boys transitioning from boyhood to manhood. So, it called on its PR agency to create a holistic marketing campaign centered around the brand's signature Wild Collection and new Krakengärd hero scent.
Reaching a younger audience meant one thing: harnessing the power of social media to grab teenagers' attention and increase traffic to Old Spice's ecommerce platform.
The PR team understood that targeted adverts alone wouldn't be enough to hit their KPIs. They turned their attention to the influencer community, brainstorming ideas to empower content creators to create attention-grabbing videos and posts.
Naturally, one idea, in particular, stood out: designing an unboxing experience with “wow factor”.
Bringing together iconic cultural influences with relatable insights makes this campaign something that consumers want to talk about with friends.
Creating an exceptional unboxing experience is no easy feat. It takes a lot of expertise, imagination and attention to detail to create packaging that inspires feelings of awe and wonder.
To do just that, Old Spice's PR team called on our custom packaging experts. Our brief was loud and clear: design bespoke packaging that showcased Old Spice’s brand identity while making a standout first impression on influencers and customers alike.
We got straight to work, creating customized mock-up mailer boxes in Old Spice's brand colors. At the same time, we advised the team on unique ways to elevate the unboxing experience with aromatic scents, freebie items and different textures.
Designs approved, we quickly produced and delivered the boxes within seven days, so the PR team had the assets well ahead of the campaign launch date.
Old Spice's unboxing experience went viral, garnering over 1.3 million organic impressions across YouTube and Instagram. As a result of the campaign, the brand also experienced a 43% increase in sales, and the Krakengärd hero scent is now the best-selling product in the collection.
Now more than ever, guys need a reminder to see the potential within themselves and nurture seeds of confidence, even when we can be Self-critical. Old Spice encourages guys to challenge their inner critic, while providing great-smelling products that help them look and feel at their best.

What truly separates Refine Packaging from other box companies I’ve used before isn’t just their turnaround time, low quantities or free shipping…It’s their 2D and 3D mockups…they were INCREDIBLE. The other companies never showed me a mockup, so I just had to hope the boxes would look good. Seeing mockups of your design ahead of production let’s you know precisely what you’ll be getting. Truly exceptional work!
The turnaround times are fantastic. I tried speaking with Packlane and TheCustomBoxes, but Refine Packaging was head and shoulders better when it came to turnaround time and quality. Their pricing quote wasn't the best at first, but when I showed them my other price quotes they not only matched the pricing I was offered elsewhere, but beat it.
We had a great experience with Refine Packaging. The process for getting our artwork done was seamless. Also, you cannot argue with their pricing, a phenomenal value.
I am very impressed with the final product as well, quality materials and a great looking finish.
I highly recommend Refine Packaging for any of your custom packaging needs.
Truly, this has been the most painless experience I've had ordering a product with my artwork on it! The mockups were done in under a few hours and they were extremely detailed oriented. I would recommend this service to anyone looking for high quality work at a reasonable price delivered fast.
Refine Packaging is AWESOME, they produced EXACTLY what I needed and at a great price. Customer Service is FANTASTIC. Harry Willis was great to work with, very professional and was immensely helpful throughout the entire process.. I will be doing more business with Refine Packaging.
Steven was a pleasure to work with. And the end result of the packaging I ordered is amazing! He was very good at returning e-mails quickly, and asking all of the right questions to get the product just right! I highly recommend Refine Packaging, and I will absolutely be working with them in the future!
The company has amazing prices for their products, and can do just about any customization you would want. The rep we worked with, Brian Moore, is excellent at what he does. The customer service and communication is stellar, and he made sure through the whole ordering and design process that we got what we wanted for our products. The finished box is beautiful and exactly what I had envisioned.
Steven Ignacio made my box production process speedy and easy. I’m very particular with design and multiple revisions were addressed efficiently with great communication. I’ve worked with other companies were this process has literally taken months, but thanks to Steven, my boxes were completed and in my hands in 2 weeks, which probably could have been faster if I was less busy. Will certainly do business again.
These guys are the best. They work with you every step of the way. They are not happy until you are happy. Quick updates on your project. Once you approve your design, they are manufactured and on your door step within 10 days. I had them make boxes for my product which are in bottles. The bottles fit perfectly in the box. The boxes are beautiful, EXACTLY what I wanted and professionally done. Thanks guys, you are the best!
Starting a new business project I was in the market for packing. I contacted well over 2 dozen printers. IF they even got back to me, they were less than helpful. I felt their prices were extremely high, with no support. Brian at Refine Packaging got back to me immediately. Helped me design my package. And their pricing was 1/3 the cost of the competitors. He followed the order thru the mail, to make sure I received it on time. Once it was delivered he reached out to make sure it was exactly how I wanted it. I cannot speak highly enough of the helpful support I received. I will continue to order from Brian!!
Refine packaging did an excellent job walking me through the design process. They were highly responsive to my questions as a first time customer and helped me achieve the product I was aiming for. Customer service was excellent and responsive and the final product came out great.
I had a very good experience working with Steven at Refine Packaging. They have very good products and good pricing with excellent quality. We will definitely be using them again for future packaging and other products.
