Axe Excite






Would I wear men's scented deodorant?  I really might if it's as amazing smelling as Axe Excite.  For now, I think I'll stick to body spray to match his Axe deo.  Axe Excite has a noticeable coconut note with a subtle underscoring of herbaceous notes, a bit fougere like many classic men's scents.  It reminds me a bit of Naomi Campbell's original perfume.  Axe Excite also smells a whole lot better to me than Axe for Women, which is kind of a sharp, generic passion fruit-like scent, like cosmetics and skin cream.  Actually, I know a lot of guys who would prefer that, so to each their own.

Bath & Body Works Malibu Heat

I've been wearing this all summer long since I discovered it. If you like fresh scents and coconut, you'll love this light and watery interpretation of coconut and other tropical fruits. It's a nice, simple fragrance to layer other scents with, too. I think it smells a bit like candy but it's more refreshing than sugary. This is my favorite BBW scent right now, so I hope it'll stop being limited edition one day (I think the fragrance was brought back since its launch because I've seen different packaging for it (Edited to add: I might be thinking of the Shimmering Mist)).

Malibu Heat

Top Notes: Fresh Mandarin, Juicy Orange, Crisp Pear, Succulent Pineapple
Mid Notes: Orange Blossom, Lily of the Valley, Coconut Water
Dry Notes: Coconut Milk, Creamy Vanilla, Sandalwood, Sunny Musk
