Some schools have banned students from using colognes such as Axe, Tag, and Bod.
The schools have banned students from using cologne because other students were complaining that their classmates were putting on too much cologne. Some students put on excessive amounts of cologne because they thought that would make them cooler or appeal more to women. Other students put on excessive cologne to cover up their smell from not taking showers. Some students actually developed asthma because they were surrounded by so much cologne.
This is going to make it harder to market cologne to people in the future. It’s going to be tough marketing to guys telling them that they want to be the guy with the asthma inhaler who has tons of girls with asthma inhalers going crazy over him every time he puts on AXE cologne.
A way to solve the cologne problem in our schools would be to set up classrooms to have both cologne and non-cologne seating. “Excuse me teacher, I specifically asked to be seated in the non-cologne seating section.”
