    Default Lynx/Axe Excite, Unilever do it again!

    Smelt this today, and after being clearly inspired by A*Men with Dark Temptation, Excite is ringing all sorts of bells in my head, I've definitely smelt this before, just can't place where. It's a fruity, woody Amber, so I might be thinking of 1 Million...

    I thought I read somewhere that they were going to stop producing Axe body sprays now that their bath gels are the big sellers.
    Looking for Hermessence Ambre Narguile and for TFPB Moss Breches (50ml bottle), willing to pay in cashdollars. PM me!

    Hmm, maybe it's actually Only the Brave that they have ripped off. Regardless, it makes a good base bodyspray that would go with a lot of Mens Orientals.

    I got one of these for free yesterday as a promo action. The smell isn't that bad and it closely resembles Paco Rabanne Black XS. Anyone else agrees?
    It's in the same vein as 1 Million.

    Acqua di Gi is my guilty pleasure. What's yours?

    I sprayed it the other day while i was at the drug store. To me, it's got that orange mild-creamy combo that i think it's very similar to Channel allure sport ...

    I hate to bring this back to life, but I got a big gift set of this for Christmas, and I am pretty sure it's a direct knockoff of Guess by Marciano with a bit more fruit.

    I am in love with Excite scent and bought shower girl. Too bad that it does not last more than 20 seconds lol. I've seen EDT of Excite and Dark Temptation on German amazon but they dont ship to my country

    In my opinion, Excite does smell like quite a few gourmands enjoying a steady popularity today, more than just 1 Million

    Excuse an old man, but what exactly is a "body spray"? Where on the body are you supposed to spray it?

    Wherever you want to put it. The Axe variety is in a metal can with butane or something in it with the fragrance.

    So are body sprays actually deodorant as well? I have never purchased one, but I always assumed they were basically stronger/better smelling deodorant sprays that one would also spray around the rest of their body. Seems strange to me.

    its a deodorant in the sense that it masks odor. But there's no antiperspirant in it, and really most people want an antiperspirant to prevent them from getting smelly in the first place.

    They are small amounts of fragrance in a gas filled can, if you already have fragrance you are not missing out on anything. You have to respray frequently. Mostly they are associated with the boys locker room!

    Dark Temptation shower gel is pretty good. Infact I would say its a must try for Angel/A*Men fans. Check my thread in the grooming board for reviews of the Axe shower gels.

    Some of their shower gels are pretty good IMO.
