Why have you changed your products into something horrible? I guess I should be thankful, but the laundry is a drag. I assumed that, since it was so prevalent in their line, it was the actual deoderant components. Lately I find that they tend to put too much of what I can only describe as a Calone-clone in fagrances, but they keep up with trends too, and they released a couple of foody chocolate smelling things. This was a fun review, Kevin. .
But sometimes it is still hard when they are smelly. Dark Temptation and Essence consistently rank as the most popular Axe fragrances. And yup, Mals, even at 11…in fact, that would be the person most in need of following that rule in my house. Teen boy smell is rank; my son played hockey and now coaches-ever smell a hockey locker room or a duffel bag about to be thrown holding nose into the wash machine? Apparently, assail the nostrils of those around him with Axe and Tag in a desperate attempt to not stink too bad and impress girls at the same time. I even have problems with people who are 4 years younger then me. The best way for me to describe this is a thick leathery base mixed with.
Instinct and Kilo are still the stars of the current lineup though. . The Dark Temptation fragrance is inspired by the scent of chocolate. I only bought this out of curiosity, thinking, like all but a tiny handful of canned dederants, this would be laughable, but when I tried it out I was shocked. And I do love those commercials.
It smelled delightful, with a strong combination of leather, spice and citrus or maybe ylang ylang? It is frustrating and funny and very sad too. It must be hard being a teenage boy. I don't even want to talk about the longevity, compliments or quality chapters. Note: top image is by Jean Baptiste Wicar, via Wikimedia Commons. When it first came out, in 2008, it used to be much better then now. I understand the library smell thing.
Memory is also strongly connected to someone's sense of smell, and different scents can trigger varied emotional responses. They dont last long enough and smell cheap. Even my 11-year-old son can really reek. That mildewy smell is a real gagger. In the category of body sprays, I give this an A+ I'm deeply, deeply ashamed to admit this, but I actually love this fragrance. I am not afraid to try anything, and who knows, you might find a new favorite. Shopping for cologne is brutal.
Look to the right for their top answers. I have and like Axe Twist and I just bought Axe Music and will try it tomorrow. And I have no problem with the poor, as I have not that much money myself, and most of our patrons that we serve are low income. Onto Instinct though, wow talk about unique. But then i was always wearing coco madomosille chanel! And my latest gripe I will add is people who smell like mildew. Sure it isnt Cuir Ottoman but, damn this is some pretty good stuff! However I will admit that when I am in the store and I walk past them I do give them a sniff if I see a new one to see if they are getting any better. But hey it's not even designed to be that way! I don't know how, but this is now what it was when first launched.
Yes, libraries do become a day time shelter. Luckily my teenage boy has moved on from Lynx to normal deodorant Nivea or the like and now has his own bottle of Bulgari Blv Pour Homme. Slightly animalic, not sweet or fresh like the other Axe's. I would add a subtle incense, rose and vetiver note, and also musk, agarwood, pepper and corriander notes. I guessed that this was intended to keep people from sleeping there.
The little one almost 13 only uses a scented Old Spice body wash and the same deodorant his dad wears. Oh, to add to the list, I often get the misfortune of being next to an elderly gentleman who smells not just like cigarette smoke and B. Some years ago I could speak with everyone, every age, now I just do not understand them. But I think I also got a bottle of the genuine article and Drakkar at some point as gifts. Instinct by Jimi Hendrix does not exist.
