Yesterday my better half asked me whether Lynx was a nice smelling spray or not. She also asked why she didn't know anyone who used Lynx when it was so compellingly advertised.

As she was not raised in Britain and therefore has missed out on trying not to catch a whiff of a high school boys' changing room as you walk past, I was as understanding as one can be in these situations.

I have since explained that the reason no-one will admit to using it is that the Lynx sprays are so powerfully attractive that guys actually will get their clothes ripped right off if women could break out of the pheremone induced ecstacy for long enough to work out what's going on.

I popped out of the office to get a cannister of Lynx Phoenix Bodyspray this lunchtime. It has a little graphic of a man spraying it over his entire body, as per advert. Did I do the right thing - or should I have plumped for the classic Lynx Africa if I want to get "results"?

It's called Axe in the rest of the world innit? I used to see it in the bargain shops and assume it was a cheap rip off.

Ooops.

Lynx Africa attracts the tigers right?

Nope - but it's guaranteed to attract Lady Sovereign :S

Y'see you say that but try buying something else that A) doesn't smell like fly spray and B) doesn't cost about 50 quid a pop

I stopped buying/using the stuff aeons ago because the stuff utterly REEKS of something chemical. I just use a solid stick now, no scent unless I'm trying to attract the opposite sex, in which case I just douse myself in that pig-piss pheromone shit they sell in the back of Private Eye

That stuff actually works.

But only on farmyard pigs, unfortunately/fortunately (delete depending on how choosy you are).

I just try to shower regularly and maybe, just maybe the odd squirt of d'Issey.

Am I doing something wrong?

I’m exactly the same Peej. I just use a Sanex or a Simply stick,. If I want to smell nice I’ll use a proper after shave.

We did a study of Lynx’s marketing at my last job as research for the marketing of a youth price plan. It’s pretty interesting stuff to be honest. They know their target market is teenage boys, and the adverts are firmly directed at them, and yet the ads themselves feature men in their twenties. It’s an aspirational thing, they’re well aware the people that they show in the ads themselves wouldn’t be using Lynx.

Impulse for girls is marketed in exactly the same way as well, it’s the same team I think. The ads feature metropolitan women, but it’s firmly aimed at teenage girls.

I put impulse in the same bracket as Lynx actually. Fucking disgusting reeky shit. There's nothing worse than all the faggy old women coming in from their ciggy breaks stinking of impulse and ciggies. Blecchhh

Nice lady: Mmm, Peej, what's that scent you're wearing?

Peej: Why, the finest pig-piss pheromone shit, my dear.

Clinique 'Happy' for men. £10, but it's very nice.

Clinique's stuff is at least not made of whale testicles.

I quite like that bizarre Muji "nondescript cardboard wrapped bodyspray" stuff. Doesn't smell of anything but then you don't smell like a docker's armpit after an hour either so it must be doing something. Probably eating your sweat with nanobots or somesuch.

Aah this reminds me, now how does it go?

Him, ‘Mmmm you smell nice what have you got on?’

Her, giggling and blushing, ‘thank you its Chanel, and mmmm you smell nice to, what have you got on?’

Him, ‘Actually darling I’ve got a hard on but I was rather hoping you wouldn’t be able to smell it’.

And by my mate, who finds it physically impossible to resist any sort of '2 for 1' deal.

A mate of mine is an exec at the company that makes Lynx. He says they know it's crap, it's just a lifestyle product to peddly to gullible teenage boys.

A group of us went to Barcelona a few years back. Drank too much sangria the first night and all woke up feeling a bit worse for wear the next morning.

Dave left his baseball cap off long enough to go for a shower which took so long we were worried he'd died in there. He then sprayed an entire can of Lynx all over himself in an attempt to pull Emma (I'll post a picture of the two of them later and you'll understand why). We couldn't go in the bathroom for ten minutes as the air was unbreathable.

/Is intrigued as to whether we need to understand why the dude was so desperate to pull her, or why he needed a whole can of bodyspray

Either she's a looker, or he's really, really not.

Now I actually quite like lynx, but only the ani-persperent stuff, the deoderant smells awful. If I want to go out smelling nice..ish then I will use lynx and something else.

/is a child at heart :)

Hurrah someone else has come out as user so I'll slip into the thread, wave and depart.

Quick blast of the pits in the morning is the limit though, I use YSL Kouros as my after shave and that's rather nice if I say so myself.

/Drums fingers impatiently

I just use Gilette, don't wear aftershave at all, never have done. The missus thinks it's ace, so that's all I need to worry about.

And yes, Lynx is for teenagers like my 19 year old nephew. And I think he's growing out of it....
