Is Old Spice Swagger A Chick Magnet?

Updated on November 6, 2011

Does Old Spice Attract Woman?

Lets just be upfront about it, men do not naturally smell good. There are also not as many tools at our disposal to change that. Fortunately, Swagger from Old Spice can make the difference. Products like this could potentially increase one's attractiveness to the opposite sex and are thus in high demand. People often go back and forth on exactly how effective this product really could be. There are plenty who wonder if any kind of smell alteration could really change someone's impression of a person. We explore this and more in this lens.

The Famous Old Spice Commercial

This commercial brought Old Spice back into the limelight and became an online sensation.

Old Spice Swagger Body Wash

For an all around clean, nothing works better than body wash. Old Spice has made sure to create its Swagger products in a way that can be used like this.

Why Colognes Work

Believe it or not, colognes do have some impact on how attracted women are to certain men. This is not to say that you can just throw on some Old Spice Swagger and expect the women to fall all over themselves to get to you. What it does mean is that smell does play some role in the partner selection process.

It is common sense that we do not prefer to be with someone that smells offensive, but what about someone that smells good? The question has been tossed around by science for quite a bit. Once again, there is no magical formula that can be applied to anyone to make them more appealing. Old Spice Swagger is a great product, but it is not a magic wand. What we do know is that women base their choice of mate largely on smell. This is something that they do subconsciously in almost all cases, but this is the method of choice. Biology tells us that products like Old Spice Swagger might help because women try to go for men who have immune systems that are different from their own. They determine this by scent. Having an immune system that is different is desirable because it increases the odds that offspring will have better immune systems. Colognes provide a pleasant scent that is almost universally appealing. Thus, some argue that colognes can make you more attractive to a women.

A slightly different take on the Swagger body spray, this Aqua Reef version creates a slightly different smell in order to mix things up.

 

What Women Want

There Is No Magic Wand

We should not simplify what women desire in a man down to her biological roots. Smell is not the only thing that attraction is based on. Old Spice Swagger products are something that should be used in conjunction with other efforts to impress. In other words, men should not try to take the easy way out and just assume that some Old Spice will make them instantly attractive. Women just as much as men want to be with someone who is physically attractive. They also want to be with someone who has a personally that they find appealing.

No single product has ever been able to completely alter how someone feels about another human being. Old Spice does not claim to be able to do this. They may just be able to spark an initial attraction that gets the conversation going. From there, it is up to you to figure out how to make this new relationship work.

      Definitely - it's not an enormous impact, but the pheromone aspect always comes into play.

      Although we don't like to admit it, even the smallest things can make the difference.

    No, its not the cologne, its the personality or looks that attract her

        It's really a mix. I think it's better for a man to smell natural but if that natural is bo then please cover it up with cologne. It's not about attraction. I think it's more about hiding the repulsion!

          I've never heard of Old Spice SWAGGER but then I don't pay any attention to men's products.

          I'm a regular user of Old Spice products too. It's not like I use them for attract women, it's simply because they work. I've tried many other products but the result was nothing in compare to what they say in their lovely commercial :)

          But you reminded me of my old schoolmate who was literally "showering" with Old Spice body spray :)) Looks like he knew the magic formula ;)

          My father was an Old Spice guy at times so, for me, the smell is comforting.
