Before Old Spice Fiji body wash, my life was a total waste. Every day I woke up and showered with the same nondescript bar soap that had been a staple of my hygiene for so long, and every day I plodded through the mundane rat race we call "life," expecting no happiness or joy. Then, one seemingly ordinary afternoon, I was shopping for groceries at Wal-Mart when a heavenly fragrance greeted my nostrils. I inhaled deeply, savoring the scent of sun-kissed beaches, luxurious tropical oceans, and just a hint of sweet, exotic pineapple. For a few heavenly moments, I was transported away from the dull and dreary world I had come to loathe, and sent to a place of warm sunshine and delight. Elated, I relished the experience and wondered if perhaps I had died of a sudden brain aneurysm and gone on to a glorious afterlife.

Then, the sensation left me and I realized that I was, in fact, still alive and still in the store. I glanced around frantically, wondering what had produced such a splendid aroma. By following my nose, I was able to discover the source: Old Spice Fiji Body Wash. So it wasn't a dream after all! It wasn't a hallucination! The smell was real, and I was holding it in my own trembling hands!

I bought the body wash right then and there. In fact, I didn't even make any other purchases. I abandoned my shopping cart and practically flew to the self checkout lane. Once I had procured the body wash, I went straight home, undressed, and hopped in the shower.

I cannot adequately describe that shower, my friends. I cannot evoke the smells and the sensations that I experienced as I lathered my tired body in the fragrant, embracing suds. All I can say is that I was transformed.

I stepped out of the shower minutes (or was it years?) later, then dressed myself and brushed my teeth. I had a meeting that evening, and I wanted to look sharp. All through the apartment floated the luscious Fiji scent--my meager little home had metamorphosed into a tropical island resort.

When I arrived at the office meeting room, looking good and smelling even better, all my co-workers literally stopped what they were doing, closed their eyes, and inhaled deeply.

"Oh my god," Debra from Accounting whispered, biting her lip. "That smells divine."

Robert from Marketing ran a hand through his hair as he enjoyed the cloud of almost-mind-altering aroma that surrounded me like an aura. "That's amazing," he said softly. He loosened his tie and laughed. "That is absolutely amazing."

Akira, the Assistant Manager, closed his laptop abruptly, then pushed a stack of papers to the floor where they fell with a soft shushing sound. "Close the door," he commanded, his voice firm. "We're not going to discuss synergy today."

Dumbstruck--and still reveling in the scent--the employees stared at him.

"Clearly," Akira continued, "a God is in our midst. A God of warm sunlight. A God of cool breezes. A God of freedom and luxury...a God of PARADISE." He gestured to me and smiled. Then, in one fluid motion, he pushed his rolling chair into the wall and got down on the floor to kneel. "Bless us with your splendid bounty, O Delicious One," he intoned.

Within seconds, Debra, Robert, and everyone else had followed suit. Rolling chairs ricocheted off the walls and desks scraped across the tiles as my co-workers scurried to bow before me. Soon, everyone began chanting in unison. The lights flickered, and a mysterious--though aromatic--breeze began to swirl throughout the office.

Akira was right. I WAS--and still am--the God of Paradise. How did this happen, you ask, bewildered? Well, I'll tell you how it happened. I purchased Old Spice Fiji Body Wash. And now, thanks to Amazon, I can buy this marvelous product without even leaving the comfort of my island resort.

I used to use Axe shower gel. The green one in the clear bottle that they no longer make, smelled like limes. Since that was discontinued, I have switched to Old Spice body washes. They seem to get the job done, as far as shower gels go, and the scents arent bad.

That is where I have a problem with the Fiji body wash. I like the Fiji Deoderant/Anitpersprant, hence why I decided to try the body wash. Opening the bottle for the first time, I could barely smell it. Trying it in the shower, the same thing, the strength of the scent was weak compared to other Old Spice scents. I wondered if the 3-pack I bought was just a lot with not alot of the "scent" in it. I finally found it at a local store, checked that the lot number was different, and noticed the same thing, I could barely smell anything.

I checked a bottle of another destination scent, matterhorn, and you could smell it when you opened the bottle. I tried switching to a different scent deoderant and body wash for a couple days, and than switched back to Fiji, thinking I had just gotten to used to the scent. But again, the body wash just dosent have any strength to its scent.

So that is my only problem with the Fiji body wash, the scent is "weak" compared to the other body washes, and even the Fiji deoderant. Some people might find that more attractive for a body wash, low odor if you will, but not for me.

I, the wife, went through Old Spice's new smells and found this Denali scent the best and most manly, clean and classic smell of them all. I liked it so much, I picked up the Denali anti-perspirant for my husband and he instantly made it his favorite requesting more products in this line. I got him the body wash as a stocking stuffer and he likes it so much that he had me subscribe and save the three pack, as well as the anti-perspirant and he still goes with the original after shave since it seems that it doesn't come in the Denali scent. We both love the classic scent. He's 40 and I'm in my 30's and neither of these scents ever get tiresome or "old man" smelling. Our 11 yr. old son loves it, too. Like father, like son.

I like the refresh and citrus smell, which reminds me of summer.
Tried Matterhorn and Denali, I would say I prefer this over the other.
Highly recommend this to anyone looking to get the fresh collection.

I sure don't look like the old spice guy, but I sure do smell like him haha. This body wash is probably the best smelling body wash i have ever smelled. It smells way better than any axe or other men's body wash. My lady loves the scent of this wash, so I don't plan on replacing this body wash any time soon. Seriously though, it really does have a great scent that doesn't give you a headache.

Old Spice recently changed the formula for Denali for their "Fresher Collection". It's wayyyyyyyyy worse. Seriously, I'm super bummed. Denali has been my go-to body wash for a couple years now. It was seriously the best smelling stuff of all time.

I'm so disappointed they changed the formula. WIll probably not be buying again :( Please Old Spice, if you're out there reading this, please! Change it back it was so good!

My husband always smells good, probably because he owns almost every scent you could imagine. He likes to mix things up according to how he's feeling. Before Old Spice's "Fiji," my favorite scent on him was "Ocean" by Bath and Body Works. The scent was fresh, clean and masculine. When he came home with "Fiji," though, I found my new favorite scent for him. Like "Ocean," the scent is fresh, clean, and masculine, but it's also soft with an even bigger hint of tropical paradise. I love it.

According to him, it doesn't dry out his skin, nor does it leave a soapy residue like other products. The scent lingers and follows him as he walks through the house. When he gets out of the shower, the fragrant aroma fills the house so I save a lot on air freshener. Another plus!

Five SPICY Stars! Old Spice "Timber" has a more spicy fragrance than other body washes in their "Fresher Collection" collection and that very pleasant smell will radiate beyond that 36 inch personal space for a few hours. With the "Timber" name, one might expect a more musky fragrance, but it is more of a spice with hints of mint without the familiar Old Spice fragrance underneath that is expected by those of us who have tried the many OS body washes. It soaps up well, effectively cleans the skin and leaves that distinctive aroma for a few hours. Highly Recommended for nighttime and weekends. Five FRAGRANT Stars! (Old Spice "Timber" fragrance body wash in a 16 fluid ounce/473 mL squeeze bottle.)

I used the old scent (maroon cap) for years, and was highly disappointed when my new bottle had a different scent. I, like many others, want the old scent back. However, that is not what aggravates me. Changing a fundamental component of a product and keeping the name is what grinds my gears. I also strongly dislike the new smell. It reminds me of a cheap car air freshener. Yes, the ones that look like trees.
