    So it smells like vain idiots with tiny balls from taking dangerous, illegal workout drugs? Wow, I wonder what that smells like.

    I'd hoped this was a satire but the manufacturer's page confirms its existence =(

    This product conveys:
    1. Men are meat.
    2. Sacrifice your long term health and fertility for the satisfaction of being a nice piece of meat or;
    3. Buy a product to offset your lack of "Really Ripped Abs on Steroids".

    A gender theory jockey would have a field day analyzing this. A female targeting version of this same tactic would be blindingly offensive; "Breasts Swollen by Expensive Surgery", "Waist Shrunk by Life-Threatening Eating Disorder", "Ribs Deformed by Crushing Corset" (19th century release).
    This isn't to downplay the seriousness of societal pressure to conform to body standards (even if it kills you) but to illuminate how absurd this product is . . .and the absurdity of the more subtle female-targeted marketing campaigns that play on body image fear.

    When no one would understand a name like Kouros or Antaeus, this is what you name it.

    This should be appearing on shelves soon, next to the soon to be released, Britney Spears Meth Fantasy.

    If THAT sells well, I hear they're considering an eau fraiche version which has "softer teeth and much less bite."
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    If I may, that's a common propaganda-induced misconception about 'roids. If taken properly they're not really dangerous. I mean, as safe as hormones can be, anyway.

    No kidding. I've seen body-builders go to extremes before, but here everything seems out of proportion. Like his shoulder... flaps? And yes, he looks like he's had a boob job.

    I wonder if he knows what he looks like to other people.

    Ugh, I don't even think that these are (steroid induced) muscles, it looks more like he injected synthol. Horrible.

    I bet he has Body dysmorphic disorder-- kind of sad really.
    If fragrance has a gender, so does all art.

    It is already available at drugstores. It's a typical "blue/aquatic" scent. Very intense and as typical with this class of products turns very synthetic on the skin.
    The packaging and marketting doesn't bother me that much. How different is this than all other products that target women a thousand times more? This is obviously a copy (albeit in a different genre) of A&F Fierce in its basic idea as far as the picture of a torso.

    Interesting how it is always that way. The fragrances that are aiming towards the alpha-male kind of guy are always sport fragrances. They can have it, a far as I am concerned.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    This stuff has actually already been out for several months, I saw this back in Feb on the parfumsdecour site. I haven't smelled it, but the original Bod Heat was quite a surprising gourmand, that smelled very much like Rochas but with more of a fresh baked bread smell going on. I actually have Bod Heat on my wish list, but it's pretty hard to find believe it or not. At least in stores.. Does anyone have a more detailed review on this one?

    It doesn't only copy A&F Fierce as far as packaging. It is a copy of Fierce, only more synthetic smelling, if that is even possible.

    Just think, someone got paid money to come up with that name. Paid.

    Is this the polar opposite of Fat Electrician by Etat Libre d'Orange? Can we get a side-by-side comparison?

    I might swing by Walgreens and see if they have testers of this tomorrow. I actually really like Body Heat and wonder if they could be two for two on their "real" fragrances.
    I refuse to sink.

    The name and concept are so bad, it's actually quite fascinating.

    Why did they name it 'Really' instead of just 'Ripped Abs'?
    Is there a fragrance named 'Really Ripped Abs'...and this is a flanker to that fragrance...you know the 'on Steroids' flanker?
    If so, does Bod market study suggest that more people would buy 'Really Ripped Abs' if it was somehow incorporated a steroid theme?
    Why is the bottle shaped like a blue plastic pine cone?
    Do men buy this thinking that they will 'get' ripped abs if they wear it?
    Or is it marketed to women who want men, who have ripped abs?
    If it is marketed to men, is it marketed to men, who have 'really ripped abs on steroids'?
    And if so, then why do they need their fragrance name, to announce to the world, what they have?
    Or if it's marketed to men who do NOT have ripped abs, do they think they will 'get' ripped abs if they use this?

    Ok, I need to stop now. I have a headache.
