    TAG Experiment

    You guys seen this TAG body spray product? On the back it claims that it attracts the ladies and has a warning stating "Consider Yourself Warned".

    After spraying half a dozen different TAG bottles onto a dental floss package at Walmart to see which one smelled the best I ponied up $3.42 for the "Wild Card" scent. It actually smells pretty nice. I'm wearing it to work tomorrow to see if any of the ladies notice anything different.

    Anyone have any good/bad experiences with it?

    Hmm, good point about the commericals... I tend to agree - anyone remember Brute commercials?

    At any rate, I do think Tag/Axe/whatever other spray stuff is good for exactly one thing - post-exertion smell cover-up. You've just gotten done playing some bball or working out and you smell bad, so you mask that stank with some Axe so you can walk out of the gym/court not reeking. This is only a band-aid for your problem - get home and shower and put on some real deodorant.

    No experience with body sprays. My collection of colognes works well for me.

    All right any of the ladies have any input on this?

    As a side note is HUGO cologne a popular brand? I have aqua di gio and polo sport but it just doens't seem right wearing it to work (the type of work I do is not a suit and tie kind of job) and those two colognes seem more like a dinner date type of deal.

    Hugo is a sub-label of Boss. As in Hugo Boss. They have several colognes out, of which I think Hugo is the worst. That smell rubs me the wrong way. Their Baldessanini (under the Boss label) is very nice, though.

    Now that's the truth.

    I've caught a whiff of both Tag and Axe and they both smell horrible. I'm not sure if the "cologne with a TV ad is all crap" idea is a good rule of thumb or not, but I'd say an even safer rule of thumb is any cologne/body spray that costs $3.42 is probably not your best bet.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    You see, King, the thing with many WBB members is that they think that the cost of the spray/cologne is directly related to how nice the stuff smells.

    They assume that the cheaper it costs the worst it smells.

    What they don't realize is that you can go to other countries where this stuff is made and buy it for a few dollars for the gallons!!!

    Don't belive me? Anyone here been in tha navy and traveled to other countries?
