I know that Axe is not a deodorant, because all it contains is alcohol, propellants, and fragrance. However, I use it as a deodorant, and it gets me through the day. I almost can't believe I use Axe because I am not a fan of putting a cocktail of unknown chemicals on my body, but it certainly beats using deodorants containing aluminum. Overall, I really enjoy this product's scent. Axe sprays are known for being very strong scented, and I'm glad that Anarchy for Her is not so overpowering. It is a very pleasant, fresh fruity scent. Since I don't use it for fragrance, I can't attest to how long it lasts, neither does it matter. It works for now, and 5 lippiees for that. I have already gotten myself another two-pack.

10/19/13: The scent has actually grown on me, and it lasts much longer than the body mist I use. It feels that over time, this fragrance exposes a cucumber-y fresh note, in addition to the fruity notes. It is so light and effortless. It works great as a deodorant for me. I have one in my desk at work, one in my purse, and one at home.

11/10/13: Unfortunately, although this product has worked very well for me, I have recently discovered that, at present, Axe (parent company Unilever) tests their products on animals. I am in support of cruelty-free practices and am trying to make better choices in makeup and personal care, so I can support companies that produce good products without animal testing. I will need to search for an alternative deodorant that will get me through the day, as I will not repurchase this product. Thanks.
I discovered this while getting some trial size things for my vacation at Walmart. I was going to New Orleans, so with the heat and humidity I thought this would be nice to spray all over. I really like the scent - it reminds me of a Calgon Body Spray, that I believe was called "Tropical" that I used to wear in the early 90's. I used up the trial size, and just bought a large size can at Big Lots for $3.00. It's hard to describe the scent- it's a little fruity, but not overpowering- it also is a bit floral, but it's fresh and not cloying. I'm taking off a lippie only because the scent does not last more than an hour. I know it's not a perfume, but I would think the lasting power would be a little better- even when you spray a lot or spray it on your clothes, it does not last.
I bought this a couple times already but I stopped using it because I just couldn't get use to the cold breeze. It smells good though.
I love this body spray, I'm not really sure how to describe the smell.. sexy and alluring! lol Lets go with that. The smell (in my opinion) doesn't last too long but otherwise that is my only complaint.
They really should make a deoderant, body wash in this scent for women too!
This spray smells really good, but the scent is really soft, so it doesn't last very long. I wish they'd come out with a variety of scents for women.
This spray smells really pretty but it does not last at all!!!
Like previous reviewers, I came across this purely by accident. I am assuming that other women must like it as much as I do (I know my roomates sure love MY cans of Axe! lol) however as it's been sold out in both big box retailers in my small town for the past 2 months. I purchased 2 cans of it right away as I liked the smell immediatly when I tested it out in the store.
Light, floral but not fruity scent. Yes, it is marketed for women, but it does have a tad bit of a manly scent also. I tend to enjoy most of the Axe scents for men so I am not surprised that I loke this one as well. The packaging is nice, it's colorful yet sturdy and travel friendly as yu can "lock" it by just twisting the cap and prevent it from accidently being sprayed on its own when bumping into something else in your bag.
I use it after showers for that immediate"fresh" feel & smell, but it definitly does NOT last long. I cannnot smell it anywhere on my skin after about an hour :-( That is the only downfall I can find, but it is a rather big one. Wish it came as a cologne as it would be a nice all day summer scent. Will buy again.
First of all, THIS IS NOT A DEODORANT. Just to clear some things up. :) This is merely a body spray, with no antiperspirant. If you did use this as a deodorant, you would find yourself sweating like you would without deodorant, and smelling like it too! The scent on this is strong at first, a manly-er floral smell. It is very feminine, but it's not sweet like some body sprays. It does lighten up after a bit, and it lasts maybe 45 minutes to 1 hour. Even though It does claim to last super long, it doesn't, unfortunately, 1 lippie off for the lack of longevity. It is in the axe for men section, just so you know :) It is super cheap, ranging from $2-$5, and i got mine at Meijer for 2.79, with a $1 off coupon from my newspaper :) Love the smell! Oh, and my best guy friend said he smelled gross, and so i sprayed it on him, and he said he liked it. :)
I found this quite by accident as well. Lovely and fruity, but doesn't last. I wouldn't suggest it as deodorant either, just as a light scent....VERY light...which is why I removed one lippy but other than that, it's super. Give it a try!
