It also degrades their man in the process, “your man can’t look like me, but he can smell like me.”

Despite the social media popularity, a campaign that spoke to men (a la Axe) would have been more effective in increasing sales.

Entertainment and creativity without the sales to back it up means it didn’t work.

Did the company increase sales and move product? Or is this another one of those wonderful marketing stories without results. Unless it makes money how effective can it be?
