High School Bans Students From Wearing Axe Body Spray
A high school in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is telling its students not to wear Axe Body spray. Finally, a ban we can get behind.
And, no, it's not because female students were shedding their tops and chasing the fellas who were wearing the fragrance through the halls, as Axe's television commercials would have you believe.
Instead it was because one student at Freedom High School had an extreme reaction to the aerosol-based cologne. While the nature of his ailment wasn't revealed, he required medical attention.
"My request to all Freedom Family members is that we take into consideration this student’s allergy to Axe Body Spray and refrain from using it as your cologne or fragrance of choice while attending Freedom High School," read a message on the Freedom High School web page.
At this point, it appears that only Axe Body Spray triggers the medical reaction as no other fragrance has been banned.
So what should the young men of Freedom High who rely on Axe Body Spray to give off a socially acceptable odor do now?
Well, there is always the old shower and soap routine. Sure it takes a few minutes longer than pressing down on the top of an aerosol can. But putting a bit of elbow grease into your personal grooming does have a long history of yielding good results.
