“Gym Tan Laundry” is so last year.  This summer, there’s something new and better at the Jersey shore…

Axe Excite Body Spray: win it! Email TheBPlot with "AXE" in the subject line.

AXE Excite

The deodorant bodyspray, deodorant stick, shower gel and shampoo in a new fab scent.  Excite is woody, smooth and cool-  combining a lush blend of coconut, hazelnut and caramel that create a lingering aroma.

“Ooooh that’s nice… yummy,” said Samantha Browne of Middletown when asked what she thought of the sent while playing with her boyfriend at the Brick Wall.  “I would have thought it was a real cologne instead of AXE.  I take [her boyfriend’s] colognes and spray them on my pillow… and I would do that with the AXE too.”

The AXE people also have a new hair product for guys with a short hair “situation.”  Three out of four ladies surveyed by AXE said they  are “more likely to run their hands through a buzz cut because they love the soft feel.” AXE Buzzed Look Cream + SPF 15 protects the scalp while keeping buzzed-short hair soft and touchable.

I use AXE as a fantastic, sexy, non-flowery air freshner.  AXE Excite is $4.99 and AXE Buzzed is $5.99 at Target, Rite Aid and Costco.

Agwa de Bolivia

The original and only Coca leaf liqueur.  Based on a 200 year old recipe, Agwa is distilled naturally with 37 herbs and botanicals – including green tea, guarana and ginseng – in Amsterdam and is a better energy shot cocktail than vodka and Red Bull. 

After a long day at the beach, Agwa de Bolivia gives you the energy to keep the night moving.  The tates is pleasant, with an natural taste – much better than something like Jaegermeister.  Like, not even in the same league.  You’ll need a lemon or some lemon juice to make it really summer-nice.  Cocktail recipes and more at
