If you don’t have a teenage son yet let me tell you a little bit about what it’s like to have one. They smell bad. I’m not talking about body odor or dirty laundry (though that can happen sometimes, too), I’m talking about body spray! Even if you don’t have a teenage son of your own you know what mean. You’ve passed that teenager or young adult male with a thick fog of body spray trailing behind him.
Moms, aunts, grandmas, it’s time to take a stand! It’s time to tell these young men to take it down a notch or ten and scent responsibly! I am thrilled to be a part of this campaign to help get the word out. To help my fourteen-year-old son learn that less is more when it comes to body spray Old Spice sent him this great and witty kit.
The kit included these tools that a teenage boy needs as he transitions to manhood.
- Old Spice Re-fresh Body Spray
- Old Spice Hair
- Old Spice Branded Earbuds
- “Over the Top” DVD
- Duct Tape to fix anything on the planet.
- Old Spice Branded Wood Flash Drive
- Art of Manliness Book
- Smellcome to Manhood Certificate.
Red is just fourteen so he is just beginning to get into personal grooming and such. Here he is getting used to the hair pomade. It has a light fragrance and isn’t overpowering, as long as you use a reasonable amount of course.
We have actually banned a certain kind of body spray and body wash from our house. It was just too much! He would take a shower and the whole house would smell like this body wash. And the body spray. Oh, the body spray. Way. Too. Much. We could taste it, it was so strong!
What does Red think about his Old Spice body spray?
At this age it can be difficult to get more than a one or two-word answer out of your kids. I asked him about his experience with the Old Spice body spray and he said, “It’s good.” When I asked to elaborate a bit more this is what he had to say:
- He likes being able to be like the other kids who wear body sprays and he was kind of annoyed with me that I told him he couldn’t have the other stuff anymore. Haha!
- He likes the smell better than the other stuff and that it lasts all day.
- He has really enjoyed the Art of Manliness book and that it has given him good tips on how to be a good boyfriend (when that time comes) and eventually father. He likes that it also gives him general life tips that guys should know.
Finally I asked him if he has a better idea of how to apply body spray without being overpowering. He said that the spray nozzle of the bottle makes it easier for him not to spray too much and now that he knows that it lasts a long time he doesn’t feel like he has to spray as much on as before.
So please, join us in the revolution and just say NO to overpowering body sprays! Enter to win a Smellcome to Manhood kit for the teenage boy or young man in your life. Open to legal residents of the US, 18+
