Have you ever experienced the AXE effect (or something similar)?

Asked by jfos (7380points) July 20th, 2010

No, I’m not advertising for AXE.

I spent this past Friday night with my ex-girlfriend. Before leaving home, I took a shower, and in the shower I used the AXE Constrict anti-poofy shampoo.

Later that night, during/after some… activities, she mentioned how great my hair felt/looked. Needless to say, I experienced the AXE effect.

Has this ever happened to you? Did you ever have a similar experience, not necessarily concerning the AXE brand, or even shampoo?

When I started using liquid body wash instead of bar soap, and started wearing cologne, women seemed to comment often on my smell (In a good way).

‘anti-poofy’ – you’re the cutest

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Thanks. I just want to warn you that you might be under the influence of the AXE effect too.

@Blackberry Yeah, liquid is what I use too. Good stuff.

I dunno, but most girls I know hate the smell of AXE. My roommate sprays it all over the place and people tell us that our room smells like an 8th grade prom threw up everywhere.

You want a real AXE effect? Ivory soap and a good (not cheap) cologne and a little confidence. That works wonders.

Thanks for axe-ing the question. I’ve found with womenm that a good cologne can do wonders.

Ugh…I really hate that smell when my SO used it. The smell just so ‘heavy’,too chemical for me. I bought him another eco-friendly body spray the next day. I think most men overestimate the AXE commercial. Good commercial but bad product.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard is kinda right, I inhale my man, and he uses just regular soap nothing to smelly for deoderant, his skin smells good CLEAN, not all perfumey and such
(everyonce in a while he’ll dab something on extra that smells good, but he really doesn’t need to for me to get all weak in the knees)

@Doctor_D, I think most men overestimate the AXE commercial

You’re right. AXE utilizes wondrously effective advertising. Sure, to most people it’s campy and even a little raunchy, but the average guy, despite his conscious thoughts to the otherwise, will still probably see it and think hmm, I could have thirteen half naked women scrubbing me with a loofah if I wore AXE too!

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Another fact that it’s cheap enough for an average guy.

Perhaps it wasn’t your hair but you she enjoyed.

I don’t really have a reaction to a cologne. Whatever Hubbs uses (soap and anti-p) works wonders for me.

AXE smells nasty. :P

The first axe commercial I saw I should my head and knew that guys would clear it off the shelves. GREAT advertising.

I like the smell of good cologne periodically. The smell I love the most is when my husband comes home and he has a slight puppy smell to him. Those darned pheromones. They can’t bottle that!

I use expensive spray deodorant. I fucking love it. It’s subtle. It works well.

Oh, also being stunningly good-looking helps too. So I’ve heard.

I’m not a fan of the AXE spray either… but the shampoo seems to produce some good effects.
