More thoughts on AXE bodyspray

I was walking through Target the other night because it has air conditioning and I noticed an AXE bodyspray display. Since men's deodorant has only a couple non-descript scents, companies tend to get a little random in naming them, typically things like Arctic Blast or Lightning Fresh.

But AXE goes in a different direction. Much like the ad campaign, they go for retarded and sketchy. For the sketchy, there's Touch. You know, because if you use AXE a hot chick will give you a handjob. For the retarded, there's Phoenix. Who the hell wants to smell like Phoenix?

After using Phoenix my penis burst into flames only to rise out of the ashes later on.

dude,
i've tried Phoenix before and didn't like it. now i have Groove...which has stimulating guarana. i'm not sure if thats a good or bad thing. either way those commercials are bullshit because i dont' have chicks throwing themselves at me.

Jammer: That explains the smell at your apartment...

Carl: Have you applied enough of it? In the commercials the guys usually spray themselves point blank for 20 seconds.

I want to smell like Jamwall's apartment.

All my male students last semester stank of feet or Axe or some horrible combination of the two.

I hear Jamwall's Apartment and Feet are going to be the next two AXE scents.

You call it AXE too?! My better half (who is Scottish) takes the pish because in the UK it's called LYNX -- he keeps telling me that the Danes come up with really lame name for products. Now I can blame the Americans. This is an excellent discovery on my part. Thanks for enlightening me.

I like the smell of AXE Phoenix actually [though I wouldn't use it myself].
