    Ahh, Axe used to have good campaigns, now it's just cheesy. I think it's really easy to know what girls like, Vanilla...everybody loves vanilla. And usually sweet fragrances, but their love isn't as objective.

    And 56% of girls don't like what their father smelled like? maybe not specifically, but smelling like the girls parents or remind her of her childhood in a good way works for me. I don't understand this whole "fragrances that turn girls on" thing. Smelling good is just one thing that could attract a girl, but just like dressing up nicely, making her laugh and so on. The only fragrances that I found to have such effects are either really well done amber/vanilla fragrances or something with an animalic note, which is risky and could do the opposite job. And even when a fragrance does that, it's a very mild effect. Oh well, Axe knows what they're doing and they're doing it well.

    At least I'm very happy they stopped their "Mix and Match" and "The more you spray the more girls you get" campaigns.....Now those were not harmless.

    So, does this mean that a guy in Texas could put some BBQ sauce in strategic places and get lucky?

    It's not surprise that vanilla is the number one. But Coffee? as a student who lives in a city, the smell of coffee is quite depressing, it implies sleep deprivation and all nighters.

    Guess that's why so many girls like Play Intense. Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and I also get a rather strong lavender absolute note (I think this is part of the coffee flower accord, as coffee flower is supposed to smell like a mix of orange blossom and jasmine).

    Because Houston usually always ranks way up there in fattest people in the U.S.? I don't know, this survey is probably fictitious.

    I don't get it: where are the acquatics in all this? If the USA prefers vanilla, why Aqua Di Gio and Cool Water are such big hits? Shouldn't it be Shalimar? or Habit Rouge? Or Raw Vanilla?

    BTW, there is no technical data as to metholodogical aspects of the research done, thus we don't have any clues as to the reliability of the infomation provided.

    For me, the smell of coffee is comforting. So it's kind of weird that it ends up being a scent that "turns women on". I get more fuzzy sweater than speedo.. but what do I know!

    Hey, I love to bash Axe as much as the next guy, but I found this very interesting. I'm not sure how accurate the results were, because I'm not too sure of how controlled the surveys were, or how many options were given etc. But, still, I find this to be a very worthy read.

    I've never traveled to Texas, but I am quite interested in cuisine. Apparently, BBQ is almost like religion in certain parts of the Southern United States. Through generations, I would assume that it has become such an ingrained portion of the culture as to have created a connection between men that cook it and attractiveness. Thus, the smell is but one more variable in that connection.

    Well, for starters, Houston doesn't have good barbecue. A lot of the famous places -- City Market in Luling, Smitty's in Lockhart and Cooper's in Llano, for example -- are closer to Austin and San Antonio. And how often does a Dallas resident even use a fireplace? I'm thinking either the study is fictitious or the questions had some type of bias involved. Was the researcher's name Dr. I. Noz Sents?

    That alone shows their research is BS. I could see that maybe if you're talking about teenagers. Most evidence for young women shows the exact opposite. What evidence? Real life. Better than any "poll".

    This same so called poll also said 1 in 4 "girls" wait over a month to wash their sheets to keep their man's "scent". I can't imagine what that scent would even be like after a month of who knows what going on in that bed. Sounds white trash to me.

    WELL quite honestly, I am a guy and i do not wash my sheets for a very long time. I barely wash my sheets, mayb three or four times a year max. And believe me, plenty happens all the time every week. BUT it still smells quite pleasant for some reason. i don't know just my experience
