    Can you image telling your grandchildren that you first noticed and ultimately fell in love with thier grandfather over his AXE body spray?

    I really, really can’t.

    Never got who Axe was selling to, until I was home one Saturday when my 13YO stepson returned from his sleepover the night before and his morning spent – where else – hanging out at the skatepark.

    But now, oh! His new girlfriend, and her BFF, and her BFF’s new boyfriend are coming over to spend the afternoon! And his mother points out to him that he reeks of stale sweat and foot odor and that his hair is matted together and sticking out all over from not being washed in over a week.

    “Shit! Where’s my Axe! Where’s my AXE!!!” Finding the bottle, he proceeds to spray about half of it under each armpit. So now he smells like stale sweat, matted greasy hair, foot odor, and Axe.

    To him, at least, the idea that you can just spray yourself with a cloud of this stuff and avoid the need to ever shower or wash your hair was a big selling point. Eventually, his mother banned Axe from the house in order to force him to take 15 minutes or so and actually shower.
