    In case anyone does not know, AXE is brand of deodorant, body spray and shower gel. I use their shower gel and sometimes their deodorant. If you use any of their stuff, what is your favorite scent? Mine is Phoenix. I just like the clean smell it has icon_biggrin.gif.

    It's Lynx her in Oz... I love the Ultimate deodorant and body wash. Blends well with my cologne.

    Often get complimented on it

    It's Lynx here as well in the UK.

    They seem to have one out here that's chocolate smelling - not sure what thats about.

    I prefer more sporty and less scenty smelling products. If I want to wear a scenty smell I wear cologne.

    Lozx

    I use Kilo body wash and deodorant, but I like most of the other scents they have too.

    I got a free sample of their new one called Dark Temptation. It has a chocolate base to it, smells really good.

    Yeah, the chocolate one's great. But I seem to think it's only a limited edition here. I use the Lynx roll-ons because the spray gives me a rash within two days. icon_sad.gif

    Sorry dude, I cant stand the smell of it. I get nauseous when my co-worker sprays it and it lingers for hours.

    I think that shit smells annoying. Plus their entire marketing methods make me think the entire product is aimed at douche bags. No thanks.

    that shit is nasty. who would want to smell like that.

    My conclusion is that if you by axe, you probably shop at A&F and use gel in your hair as well.

    I don't mind body sprays as long as the wearer is wearing them in an appropriate fashion such as:

    1. Not dousing yourself in it before your work out.
    2. Not dousing yourself in it before running in a road race with 100s of other people. ACK!
    3. Not substituting it for regular underarm anti perspirant
    4. Not subsituting it for a shower
    5. Not covering yourself in it before going to a bar, chain smoking, and getting drunk. There's no worse odor than the wreak of cigarrette smoke, booze (because your body tries to get rid of it by excreting it from your pores), and perfume.

    I think essence is the only one I've ever liked enough to buy. I'm well groomed, but I keep it simple and low maintenance. So soap, water, and regular old deodorant work for me.

    Well it seems the audience is divided. I never knew some of you guys hated it so much, could it be partly because of the way the company markets its product? I tend not to think about their rather sexist and degrading advertising a whole lot... And as for their scents, can you really hate *all* of them (have you tried them all)? Some smell just like any other cologne (in moderation of course).

    They all stink!

    Try some Kenneth Cole products or Polo by Ralph Lauren

    I don't know which stench is which, but when I can smell someone's perfume before I can see them (especially on the bike path!) it's just nasty. Most of that stuff just makes my eyes water and stuffs up my nose.

    I actually like the body wash better than the body spray...
    at least the wash is subtle.

    Favorite scent is "Touch" (the red one)

    A friend gave me a free sample of Axe Chocolate for my birthday as kind of a gag gift. She liaisons with fratermnities and sororities and the Axe folks were doing a free promotion on campus that day.

    It's the official perfume of Maximâ„¢ Nation (a nation in precipitous decline).

    Fortunately it doesn't make Sahem any less cuter. :-P

    I think Axe smells like shit and I wouldn't be caught dead wearing A&F but I gotta admit that Abercrombie's "Fierce" cologne (just typing the word kills my brain cells) is actually pretty amazing. Whenever I wear it, I have people constantly telling me how good I smell - including strangers who happen to be standing right next to me.
