Axe is a brand known mostly for their body sprays for men that have a distinctive scent. But they sell many other male grooming products. Their advertisements often show women being attracted to men wearing Axe products and while this is not a guaranteed effect, there is no doubt that Axe products work great to maintain one’s looks and personal hygiene.
The Axe brand was created by a European company called Unilever. Unilever is a maker of a variety of products, from food (with brands such as Knorr, Lipton, or Hellmann’s) to personal care and beauty products. These include not only Axe but also Dove or Rexona.
Axe was first launched in France back in 1983. From there the brand expanded and now sells its products all over the world. Depending on the country it is known by other names, Lynx or EGO, due to being unable to secure the Axe trademark.
The Axe body sprays, or as they are now referred to – daily fragrances, come in a variety of scents, from refreshing citrus ones to musky wooden fragrances. One of the highest-rated scents is Apollo – a mixture of fruits, sandalwood, and fresh herbs. The daily fragrances come in two sizes, regular (4 oz) and XL (5.1 oz).
When using the Axe body spray, it is important to remember not to overuse it. Putting on too much of any fragrance, not only Axe body spray, will have negative effects and is more likely to make people around you uncomfortable. A quick spray across the chest is more than enough. If needed, feel free to refresh that once more during the day.
Deodorants and antiperspirants
Axe has its own line of products meant to combat sweat under the armpits. Most of them come in the stick form. The aluminum-free Axe deodorant is especially worth buying. The new formula provides complete protection from sweat for the whole day. Axe deodorants come in different fragrances, matching those of the body sprays. The best Axe scent is often said to be Apollo or Phoenix.
There is also a small selection of Axe antiperspirant deodorant sprays available if you don’t like using sticks. If you aren’t sure which deodorant to get, check out this deodorant review site.
Axe also makes hair care and hair styling products. But you won’t get a simple Axe shampoo. All their hair care products come as a 2-in-1, shampoo, and conditioner in one. The only shampoo-only product is the Oil Blaster Shampoo for people with oily hair.
The hair styling products include waxes, pomades, pastes, and texturizing creams and gels.
There are many Axe body washes available in different scents. The Ice Chillin’ Body wash is especially refreshing. The body washes come either in regular bottles or with a pump. Some of the fragrances match these of the body sprays or deodorants. If you need something even more efficient, try the 3-in-1 product that combines body wash with shampoo and conditioner.
