Gillette Homage to Sweat

Gillette ran “Homage”, an Odor Shield tribute to significant achievements made possible by persistent hard work. From labourers building the pyramids in Egypt, oceanographers exploring new horizons on high seas, composers redefining music, the Wright Brothers’ working towards their first flight, and astronauts walking on the moon, men couldn’t afford to let sweat get in the way of progress.
