    Youre talking about this one:



    ??


    It was ULTRA famous here at Brazil at the 90s (the most famous Axe here at that time, with MARINE) but I think that now it dont sell that much anymore, but still easy to find.
    It was not an Aerosol but a plastic spray, but I cant find a picture of the old bottle and box.
    I have to say that I may have used one or two at my youth. If I remember well it was very sweet and powdery, similar to Brut but much more sweet and less fresh.
    It was interesting for some time, i have to say.

    Thanks for trying and giving your opinion DuNezDeBuzier.
    I didn't make an Old Spice connection, but I will bear that in mind on my next spray. I agree that the "concert" part of the fragrance lasts around 2 hours, but I notice that my T shirt really smells strongly of it the next morning, (based on 2 very quick sprays). I don't know why I am so addicted to this stuff, but I am.

    Nothing to apologize about my friend. How a fragrance appeals to you is very subjective. I'm sure that the Axe Musk suits your skin type extremely well and is a scent you like. So much the better. Think about it, it's cheap, it smells great to you, and you can pick it up just about anywhere. You have discovered gold. Now you have gone and made me curious. I'll have to pick one up tomorrow and get back to you.

    Yes, but the newer version has a twist down top. This top looks different.
    I think the original Axe Musk from the eighties was a completely different fragrance to the twist down cap Axe Musk. I am sure it has been reformulated and, (for a refreshing change) I much prefer the new version.
    Thanks for sharing the image and your thoughts.

    Thanks for your comments senore01. I am not sure that you will be able to buy it over the counter in the States ? I think you will have to order it online, but that shouldn't be a problem. Would love to know your thoughts on it......(you will probably hate it and kill me for having talked you into it !).
    My addiction to it is a mixture of it's retro vibrant 70's feel, simple barbershop, "slightly" Kouros direction and the fact that it has such excellent silliage and gives you a whole concert for just a couple of quick sprays !
    At the end of the day I know it is not in the same league as many designer classics, but it's fun to wear and is very sexy.

    Looks exactly like the one I'm using, with the nifty twist down cap/spray inhibitor.

    Yes, .......... is this available in shops in the US ? I was informed it was only re~released in 4 countries.... France ,Germany, Brazil and Argentina.
    By the way, there is an excellent indepth history of the Axe brand and all their various releases worldwide over the years on wikipedia. Really shows how complex global marketing of a simple product is ~ many fragrances have different names in the various countries they are sold in.

    Good to know, DuNez!

    Also, David is correct - I came across that Wikipedia page a while back and was very impressed with the amount of information that is there as well as just how big this brand has become on a global scale!

    Remarkable, really.

    Cheers,

    “Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”

    I don't know - it sounds like this Axe should only be dispensed under the guidance of a prescribing doctor.

    Unfortunately now having tried the scent (this one is the most recent version of the bottle) on skin a couple times I can confirm most of my initial impressions. The key differences were on skin I get none of the rose (a note I love when done well) that I initially smelled and *much* more of the talc-like powder and synthetic musk that I disliked on paper. Definitely this one is not a good fit with my tastes, but it is always fun trying new things out with the hope something will unexpectedly be that "hidden gem". Projection is about average and longevity is poor (which is to be expected from a body spray).

    Hi Glenn, Just google Axe Musk body spray and you will find all the sellers on amazon, ebay etc., etc. Can't go wrong. Please report back after you have tried it. I am still addicted to it, and now I really agree with basenoter who describes this as "rose and powder/barber shop".
    .........really hoping more people will try this and report back. So far only two have done so.
    It's not at all expensive and worth trying !

    What Axe does really REALLY well is demographics. In that regard, they are brilliant. Axe is going after a very specific age group and they make an effort NOT to grow the brand into other ages. Instead, they grow by dominating a slim age group. That may sound counterproductive, but it works. By staying true to the tastes of teens and early 20s, Axe goes through a lot more customer turnover than most designers ever will. Axe is constantly working to get new customers on the young end to replace those who outgrow the brand.

    That's why it's perfectly reasonable for Axe to have products that smell great even though most of us here have never tried them. I've never tried anything by Axe. I don't doubt that some of their stuff smells good though.

    It is true that Axe is "for" 15 year olds (15 to 25, if you want to get all demographic about it). 15 year olds also like pizza, but that doesn't mean pizza tastes bad to someone older. Come to think of it, I could really go for a slice of pizza right about now!

    If this stuff came in an EdT instead of a body spray, I'd be tempted to try it. Why not?
    I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.

    Received my bottle from Ebay today and gave it a wearing. Not bad at all for an Axe product. Still smells like it came out a can or some type of spray device, but it's not as bad as some of the other Axe products that omit the strong powder note. If they make a shower gel I'll be all over it. Well worth the asking price.
