Last week I received some tubes of Godrej and Axe cream from another forum member and just got around to trying them last nightÖ Menthol Mist and Fresh Lime Godrej and Denim Axe. I had really high hopes for both of the Godrej creams, but those hopes were quickly and unexpectedly dashed.
All three creams, but especially the Godrej Menthol Mist have a secondary scent that is extremely musty and musky. The Fresh Lime has it to a lesser degree, but itís still there. With the Menthol Mist itís so strong it nearly turns my stomach. My Parker Deluxe Pure Badger brush holds the scent as well, as long as 2 or 3 shaves afterward even when using other products (mainly Proraso cream) afterward.
I had big plans for the Godrej Menthol Mist being a go-to cream for its heavy menthol content. It does indeed pack a big Menthol punch, much stronger than the Proraso cream I use otherwise. Unfortunately the must/musk undertone is so strong that I just canít use it without basically plugging my nostrils with Proraso.
Does anyone else pick up on this secondary scent with Godrej and/or Axe creams? Is there some chance I just got some old tubes that had turned or soured? Any recommendations on another inexpensive cream with a strong menthol kick?
