    I couldn’t understand the artwork at first….cos it looks like the truck is about to speed over a cliff, and someone was thrown out.

    But I think the idea is supposed to be that the truckers are jumping free of the truck…which is full of Axe Body Wash, and headed straight for the patchouli oil factory….(somehow hitting it even after the road disappears?)

    When they collide, and the products mix, the resulting cloud of … well, let’s say “aroma”…will kill all the life forms on the planet.

    Makes sense… I mean, a little patchouli is OK …just smells like old hippiesor those newly hatched baby hippie wanna-bes (so cute) …

    But a LOT of it is deadly….and merely opening a bottle of anything from Axe can clear a room.

    In 1967 when I first arrived in San Francisco patchouli was the dominant scent on Haight Street. It quickly became, to me, the fragrance of love, dope, and sex.

    It’s you guys of the second generation that equate it with filth and malodorous bodies.

    @kevin78661 you quickly lose respect around here when you call someone an idiot. You can get reported, you know? Just be careful.

    I guess I’ve lived a sheltered life. I never heard of patchouli. I have heard of AXE – my grandson uses that and he smells nice.In other words, I didn’t get this at all.

    As an aside – I have Abe Lincoln’s axe! The head has been replaced twice and the handle 3 times.

    Nick: “I didn’t hear him enter, but my nostrils flared at the scent of his perfume…Pyramid Patchouli! There was only one joker in L.A. sensitive enough to wear that scent, and I had to find out who…he…was!”Rocky: “Good afternoon, Mister…Danger. I’m Rocky Rococco.”Nick: “Thanks, Half-Pint! You just saved me a lot of investigative work!”Rocky: "Maybe yes, maybe no. Do you know what this is?

    I don’t even have a sense of smell* and…I got it.I can tell Kevinnumbers smells bad. ;)Sinus operations at a very young age is the theory. I can taste things just fine, though.

    The problem with written media is the tone is not implied. I could say, for example, ‘Axe body spray smells wonderful’ and you have no idea if i am being sarcastic or not, nor will you. A lot of what some say in these comments is with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

    Hopefully those Axe products will work for you and you will no longer be a virgin.

    Susan, I was going to come to your defense, but you are both capable of doing so, and would do a much better job, if you felt it was necessary.

    Whenever I smell Patchouli, I get a flashback to the 60’s
