If anyone use or knows people who use Axe body wash, Is the scent too strong? I know the body spray is way to strong. Want to know if the body wash would be overwhelming in the office.

No, I've bought that for my husband and sons and it might smell fairly strong while showering, but not once you've dried off and dressed.

I say it is fairly safe, but if someone at your office is extremely sensitive to scents, then hopefully they will tell you so you can dilute it or switch brands to something lighter.

I use Axe Phoenix and, like gouligann said, once you're dressed it's fine. Only Axe product I didn't care for was the shampoo

Lots of guys used Axe when I was in high school...the body spray stuff. Their reason was it hid the smell of smoke from their parents.......laughing.....beware.....it’s super strong....the spray anyways.

It's $5 or whatever at the store so just try it. I imagine it's basically the same thing as Irish Springs, e.g., very heavily perfumed. Used to use Irish Springs as a teenager/college student as there's just something about puberty and hormones that makes teenagers reek beyond just poor hygiene.

As an adult generally one heavy perfume source is all you want. For me it's Old Spice deodorant. Used to it, like the smell. If you use an unscented deodorant, then a heavy perfume soap like Axe or Irish Springs would do the same thing. Alternatively, use cologne/after shave for the perfume. They're pretty much pointless in conjunction with heavily perfumed body washes and deodorants as they get overpowered. Most colognes also have fairly short lifespans, 3-6 hours, where as Old Spice keeps on smelling all day long.

I like the dark chocolate. Very good body spray and deodorant. Especially if you sweat a lot, absorbs odor.
