AXE Antiperspirant Dark Temptation


  • Roses are red, violets are blue, we love the smell of this antiperspirant, and so will you.

    Product Breakdown

    There are 2 kinds of gentlemen in this world: The antiperspirant men and the deodorant men.

    For starters, antiperspirant men value dryness above all else. The primary goal of antiperspirants is to reduce, if not eliminate, underarm perspiration.  With an aluminum compound as the active ingredient, these aluminum ions work to block the sweat glands from perspiring. The secondary goal of antiperspirants is to help you smell your best, thanks to the added fragrance. It is important to keep in mind that the same compounds responsible for stopping you from sweating can also stain the underarms of your shirts, which are nearly impossible to wash off!

    In contrast, the only goal of deodorants is to help you smell your best (and be BO free!). For those apprehensive about the idea of pore clogging agents or shirt stains, deodorants will be your go-to solution. Deodorants also tend to be richer in scent to help mask unwanted scents.

    Dark Temptation has consistently ranked among the best selling scents at AXE. Combining the subtle aroma of chocolate with fresh gourmet scents, including hot chocolate amber and red peppercorn, this is the closest smelling product to coffee. Why would you want to smell of light coffee? It helps that women ranked coffee among the top scents which turn them on.

  • Editor's Note

    If you fall into the antiperspirant camp, be sure to always wear an undershirt under your dress shirts so that your more expensive dress shirts do not stain.

  • How it Works

    Aluminum ions are taken into the cells that line the sweat-gland ducts at the top layer of the skin. When the aluminum ions are drawn into the cells, water passes in with them. As more water flows in, the cells begin to swell, squeezing the ducts closed so that sweat cannot get out.

    How to Use

    Pop-up the lid and apply to both underarms.  For best results, use after shower when your underarms are damp.
