Axe decodes what scents turn girls on. Follow the link at the bottom of the blogpost to Axe's Facebook page and you'll see the slideshow pictures explaining what scents are the most popular in which regions. [More:]It's interesting - of all the scents, Houston women prefer barbeque the most? I wish they had more info than just the top ten cities. The "date ideas" slide cracked me up, though. "Girls in NYC like coffee most, so... take her to a coffeeshop!" YOU'RE KIDDING, I NEVER WOULD HAVE MADE THAT CONNECTION!
"Girls in Philly like clean laundry most, so.....get her to do your laundry!!"

Interesting. I'm not a girl (I'm a woman) and none of those scents would make me more inclined, except maybe the coffee. My weak in the knees scent is pine. You could hit me over the head with a club and drag me off to a cave by my hair after I've been to a Christmas tree farm.

note: I don't know of any caves near Christmas tree farms.

Wasn't the Philly one offering to do /her/ laundry, not make her do yours? These are hilariously literal at any rate.

Yeah I was just riffing on what flex said ;P

It's actually a little creepy if you think about it: hey, we just met, but I want you to think of smells you like when you think of me, so let me wash your clothes, including underwear.

We're all girls in Axe's world (or otherwise invisible), I think!

Yeah, if you're dating, my assumption is you don't know each other very well yet, so doing someone's laundry seems... much too much. What a suggestion.

Axe does not smell like any of these scents.

I'm closest to Chicago and I'll totally cop to loving the smell of vanilla. I'm not sure that's what I want my man to smell like, though.

I sure as hell don't want a dude who smells like barbecue. But I'm a heathen non-native anyway.

Huh. I guess I live in the wrong part of the country; I'd take suntan lotion over cherry any day. And cherry what, anyway? Just plain cherries in a bowl don't have much of a smell. Do they mean that horrible, horrible artificial cherry smell like on car air fresheners? Since it's Axe, they probably do. Ewwwwwww.
