Africa 150ml deodorant - body spray
The daylight hours are venturing into the time territory waters once occupied by darkness - well, since last year anyway. At the weekend 26-03-11 Greenwich Mean Time loses an hour out of our precious weekend; you notice it never happens on a Monday. This timely event also embarks on the dawning of extra sun-light hour (s) during the evenings and mornings (allegedly); for me, it is a time to peer into my musty scented bathroom cabinet and spy out canisters of antiperspirant. Not that I don't routinely cleanse my pits by applying a delicately scented roll-on, after getting a couple of un-savory morning whiffs; now the clocks impend to spring forward, a more robust heavy-weight is called for; Lynx Africa! It's the same for using an 'industrious' bin-liner rather than the frail kind that splits under the strain of holding the vicious corners of a packet of Coco Pops. If Lynx Africa was a bin-liner the coalition air-strikes wouldn't waste fire-power on liberating Libya - they will be dropping huge tents of bin-liners onto Gaddafi's forces, suffocating the mercenaries on impact.
Lynx Africa's industriousness is man enough to eradicate male odor, for at least a day. My testing of this product has been extreme, hardly a physical one, but a vigorous test of scent endurance; it involved two duvets, a thick T shirt, a dressing-gown, a light blanket, and leaving the heating on all night at 22 C - After eight hours having been cooked raw, and waking up decidedly cranky, that also added internal heat and moistness to the equation. I did the sniff test. Lynx Africa was putting up a valid defense against the onslaught of rebel body odor. With a deeper deliberating sniff - I gauged I has several hours of the Lynx Africa effect still left. As it was time for a refreshing early morning shower, I soaped away the relentless force of rebel body odor; and reapplied my arm-pits with three long pump action squirts of spicy, sweet Lynx Africa deodorant spray; guaranteeing me over 26 hours of scented pits. Although some ladies I've met, prefer full bodied pheromones instead.
On the cold, metallic canister in capitals it reads; 'directions: hold can 15cm from the body to spray' - This I find doesn't help with accuracy as the spray spreads out like a cluster bomb and in the past has completely missed the target due to being too amorous with the pump action and not engaging fully where the nozzle hole was? Being a happy Lynx Africa pump action user, several cluster bomb particles went into a 'no fly zone' i.e. my cake-hole. Err - Ingesting, not advisable; the Lynx effect doesn't go as far as solving halitosis problems. In fact on the canister the text reads; 'avoid direct inhalation'. But I suppose 'indirect' is fine, when it's been lingering about in air-space for a length of time. One of the biggest surprises for me is; 'do not spray on a naked flame or incandescent material'; or even start smoking directing after using the Lynx effect; so don't get too angry. This product is 'extremely flammable' and an orange label with a black flame is emblazoned on the canister, obviously Unilever (the product manufacturer) has tested its flammability - hence, the black flame. Good to know if you're planning a Lynx Africa canister clear-out, by lobbing them onto a bonfire that the colour of fire/smoke wouldn't be of florescent vividness, therefore masking your stupidity from neighbours; albeit their washing might smell nice down wind. Text also reads; 'Keep out of reach from children'. Not sure how that works, as the kids these days are taller than the adults.
As Lynx Africa is now sixteen years of age - not a pimple on its chrome surface - the product commenced its shelf-life career in 1995. It is deemed as an adult, and can legally start smoking; which it will, if left in direct UV light (sun) and reaches the temperature of 50 C; of course, without the aid of a shop corner, cigarette vendor. Right at the bottom of the scripted blurb is a comment about the canister being able to be recycled; 'Please recycle when empty'. Sadly canister technology can't inform the user whether it is 'empty' by a sign or an indicator; so a good ear and an energetic shake are called for.
Twist & Shout!
Naturally, there is a fundamental flaw with Africa. The fact was, I was wrestling with the twist top for ten minutes - well only twist slightly, too unlock the nozzle plastic tag mechanism. The top part should lift up to unveil the headed nozzle. The plastic tag can be stubborn, so bare with the contraption. When the smaller in circumference, pump action, sigmoidal nozzle, sits at 1cm above its spherical parent, the antiperspirant is available for pumping squirts. Initially, it can be tricky to twist accordingly, so remember to check the nozzle is visible before pumping the head. Otherwise the deodorant spray will be collecting in the 'twist' head, leaking through the canister. If, like me, that is the case; refrain from eating sandwiches and doing handshakes straightaway. Over a several hours your pits or hands smell of caramelized vanilla; the undertone scent of 'Africa'.
The 'Africa' branding is immediately recognizable by the red and green, finger-painted lineages through the 'LYNX' chromed text, and centralized; resembling a Bauhaus styled erection by Walter Gropius. Available in Superdrug, Boots and mainstream odor orientated retail shops that make you convulse with a plethora of scents, in which abuses your nasal hairs. Lynx Africa is found at an affable fee of 2.79 GBP.
I've not yet tried it out with a bonus fresh spray, if going out at night, where ladies will be present. Day-time use only, for me; it is far safer. Night-time usage will inevitably get you in hot water. Females will pounce.©1st2thebar2011
