    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.
    Indeed, I would seriously like to know too. I'd be interested in an interview of the business planners and advertising people involved. If we could find out who's involved we could write them a letter.

    Anyone in business know how to track down companies/consultants/agencies that work on a product's market plan like this one's?

    If we can figure it out I'll write a snail mail letter under letterhead, or several, and we'll see if any replies come back.

    There is indeed a fragrance named "Really Ripped Abs" and this is a flanker of that. See the original post which states: "Really Ripped Abs on Steroids Mega Cologne Spray by BOD Man
    NEW! Really Ripped Abs on Steroids by BOD Man is an amped up version of our popular Really Ripped Abs Fragrance Body Spray."


    It looks like they are using the same bottle as Bod Heat.

    I predict this fragrance will be the sponsor for the new season of Jersey Shore (Miami)

    The bottle manages to be hideous with the inspiration from Viktor & Rolf with mega spray of Eau Mega, and the grenade bottle from Flowerbomb.

    I approve of these shenanigans! Patou pour Homme might still be with us if they'd given us an "On Steroids" flanker.

    I eagerly await "Fracas On Smack". White Heat, White Light, White Flowers!

    I'm this close to sending a bottle of this to a very conservative mother, who will go apesh*t over this products name and would start an anti-Bod campaign/petition over this brand trying to seduce young men into the steroid lifestyle.

    Those Bod sprays are quite hideous to my nose. How does "Body Heat" and this one (I won't dare spell out the name) compare?

    Now if only it came in the clasic "Macho - it's baaaaddd" bottle, it would be perfectly homoerotic.

    Yes, if taken safely, for actual medical conditions that require it. I was on steroids very briefly many years ago, because I was diagnosed with a 2.5 year bone delay. I took it safely, and for a required medical condition. My friend and coworker who has Leukemia (thank god, it's under control, and he isn't expected to have a shortened life because of it), requires regular spinal taps, and is on steroids for a week every month. Any usage of steroids for a purpose other than treating a serious and documented medical ailment, is abuse IMO, not to mention illegal. I'm not mincing words, this product is offensive to the max.

    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.
    I couldn't disagree more. It's one thing to promote sex, we've seen it a million times, obviously with women, but also with male models in A & F and other ads. It's a far worse offense to explicitly promote something that is harmful and illegal. How do you think this would fly if it were released?

    I smelled it today and now own a bottle. It's definitely a Fierce knockoff -- but I think it does it well (which is why I bought it). I am sure if I did a side-by-side comparison, I'd go with Fierce. But at this price, I'll avoid that and just live under the impression that it smells exactly like it.

    I was at K-Mart this weekend and had a chance to smell the new BOD mega cologne. It was quite nice. Considering the price I would give it two thumbs up.

    My six year old son thought the bottle was a toy grenade and wanted to launch it across the store.

    Tried it.
    It's in the middle between Fierce and Curve; not bad at all. I just hate the name and the ugly pine cone bottle.

    I've never tried Fierce but I didn't get any Curve when I tried this, maybe Curve Crush though. What I got was a fragrance that would appeal to a kid in high school. Didn't smell bad, but I'd have to wear more than 1 spray on my palm before I could see what's up with it. I really do love the original Sexy Man x2 though, smells very much like Rochas Man.

    Fierce is hard to dislike IMO. You should give it a try, that is, if you have the guts to step into that metro cave! LOL

    I got a small bottle of this at Wallyworld a while ago. It's ok. Kinda like Nautica Voyage without any interesting elements (ha). The Body Heat is nice though.
