    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I got a sample of this from a gym last year, and I'll use it every now and then after a workout to feel refreshed or after a night out to cover up the smoke smell (that I despise) from bars.  I like the "Kilo" scent, but I haven't tried any of the others, so I can't pass judgement on anything else.  Though I have found that the commercials aren't that far from the truth.  For those unfamiliar with the ads, Axe basically leads you to believe that wearing their product will reduce all females (including  [​IMG] "stranger girls") to panting, heaving jungle beasts.  And, in giving a classmate of mine a ride home from a bar, I witnessed her nearly fall weak at the knees.  I was just wondering if anyone else had used any of the scents.  And, if so, have you seen any real-life accounts of the commercials?

    LOL the commercials are stupid. You'll never see something like that...unless they're drunk girls. I personally enjoy Voodoo and Pheonix. They're good if you can't afford the expensive colognes [​IMG]

    I've never tried them. I have a thing about scents. I don't really want to spend $6 on one. That, and everyone and their father here owns that stuff. They like to spray it all over the school. It's all too familiar around here.

    Does Axe really work? I have somewhat of a paranoia that my deodorant doesn't work as well as I think it does (probably stems from something I read about not being able to detect your own sweat smell). Anyway, it seems like many deodorants don't work too well; the gel ones especially seem to die off after a few hours.

    I stick to Old Spice Red Zone or High Endurance, they seem to do the job well.

    Axe is a body spray. It's more for scent than blocking odour. If you think you're deoderant might not be working, I suggest you get to the store and pick up Ralpl lauren's Polo anti perspirant. It's some strong stuff that works really well.

    For some reason I'm leary of 'designer fragrance' deodorants not working well. Is this often the case, in your opinion?

    Well, I had Nautica's Longitude/Latitude deoderant and it wasn't working the greatest. My father suggested I try the Polo antiperspirant, and it's fantastic. These are the only designer deoderants I've used. I think it just depends on the company and how much attention they give their fragrance/skincare lines. For some of them, it's just an afterthought. And I've never had luck with the drug store deoderant brands.

    Versace,

    Stick with Old Spice High Endurance. It really is the best: covers up odors well and doesn't leave any stains (such as those deodorants with aluminum...this happened to me with Red Zone).

    Like High_Roller said, Axe is a bodyspray meant to add some lagniappe (a little something extra), not to cover up B.O.
