Today, I went to the store to look for deodorant supply. I noticed that AXE products. It reminds me last week. The product called tsunami. I don't like that see this product. They shouldn't called something like that name of catastrophe like that! It makes me sick to see this. I didn't buy it.
Check products and look scroll down name of product:

Well, it was obviously named before recent events in Asia, and will probably be re-named soon. Everyone has a negative connotation to the word tsunami now, that they didn't have before the tsunami. Before the tsunami, none of us would probably have thought twice about the name.

Oh jeez the fragrance is called Tsunami...damn, say it aint so. I feel for the victims of the horribly tragedy in Asia, but are you seriously saying that they should stop calling the product Tsunami?
While were on the subject, we will now change September to Augtober because of September 11th... please.
Bad things happen... if your so intent on it being such a big part of your life (Which dont get me wrong, is honorable), do so by providing monetary aid... leave the companies who are trying to make money alone... If AXE decided to rename the fragrance Tsunami-Everywhere-Except-Asia now, then we can talk...

Bad luck for the Axe product I guess. Tsunami is a strange name to call a deoderant anyways. What's a tsunami got to do with smelling fresh? Nevertheless I wouldn't stop buying it just because of the name and it's association with the disaster in the Indian Ocean. If anything it should inspire people to think more about what happened and be more concerned.
If I were Axe marketers though I think a name like "Ocean Fresh" or "Ocean Breeze" would have been more logical to start with. A tsunami is exactly what it implies, a tidal wave that destroys everything in it's path... so what are they suggesting, you smell so bad you need an extreme product to rid your body of B.O.? Kinda insulting don't ya think? LOL

trust me you'll get addicted to it... People always make the mistake of spraying it then smelling it and they always say its to strong. But spray it on you and your clothes and wait about 2 mins and then it smells so good.

Well shit, maybe they should rename the popular mixed drink "Hurricane". I mean after all those 'canes in Florida this year, who would want to get hammered off of something that has destructive connotations.
On the same note, maybe Kahlua should rename their "Mudslide" as well. Do you realize how many people have actually died during mudslides?
There used to be a nightclub in JAX named Tsunami's when I lived there in the late '90's. Not sure if it's still called that but if so they should change their name then for sure.

I don't think AXE introduced this fragrance line onto the market on Dec. 27, 2004, did they? So, what's the big deal? It's just name and no one intended to benefit from the disaster. Political correctness of certain people seem to have reached bizarre dimensions.

: Hold on a second. Lets ban the word AXE, granted its not spelled the same as Ax, but many people back in the day died because of a shot with an ax.
