Bath & Body Works Men’s Cool Spring Shower Gel

The scent of the Bath & Body Works Men’s Cool Spring Shower Gel takes me back to the mid-1990s because it smells very similar to my cologne of choice back in those days — Davidoff’s Cool Water, or as I called it, “Liquid Sexy.”

For me, the mid-1990s was a time of freedom, during which I shunned bedtimes, ate whatever I wanted, said whatever was on my mind, drank alcohol via a tube and funnel, and lost my virginity…I think.

I loved the scent of Cool Water so much that to get the full effect of it I also used the deodorant, shower gel, shampoo, aftershave, hair gel, moisturizer, and a folded Cool Water scented advertisement from either Men’s Health Magazine or GQ Magazine placed in one of my pockets.

Whenever you were around me in those days, you could not miss the seductive scent of Cool Water radiating from my body and you could not light a match near me because I was highly flammable.

Speaking of being hot, that’s what the ladies would feel after getting a whiff of my “man aura.” Whenever I came walking by, women would step aside and watch me glide. Some would turn their heads away, while others would walk further away to ensure they wouldn’t embarrass themselves by jumping my bones in public. Sure, I never got laid while wearing Cool Water, but I guess that just proves I was too sexy with it on.

So instead I must settle for the Bath & Body Works Men’s Cool Spring Shower Gel, which contains aloe to helps soothe and soften the skin, tea tree oil to invigorate and refresh the skin, and comes in a manly turquoise color. After using it, I could not tell if my skin was invigorated or refreshed, but I think for most men they really don’t care about that.

Overall, I really do like its earthy, slightly musky scent, which is definitely for guys, and mostly importantly, it gets me clean. It may not exactly be like the “Liquid Sexy” I remember and it won’t get me laid, but perhaps I can create a few new memories with the Bath & Body Works Men’s Cool Spring Shower Gel in the mid-2000s.

  1. You could try using this product in conjunction with Cool Water cologne. It looks like it’s still available for sale: http://tinyurl.com/37dvra

    Perhaps you can buy some and then re-create your “Marvolicious” dance moves from the 1990’s. That should get you laid for sure. Either that, or arrested.

  2. Ahhh, memories. I’ll never forget the summer break I inexplicably brought home the house drinking funnel and hid it under my little sisters bed, where it was somehow discovered by my parents. Good times.

  3. Man-aura! I love it!!!!

    …and all those memories of my high school crush, who also wore too much Cool Water

  4. I don’t remember Cool Water particularly, but maybe that’s because I was too busy swooning over the guys that wore it to notice the smell…like subliminal sexiness.

    I say you bring sexy back, Marvo! Make Cool Spring the “liquid sexy” of the new millenium.

    And I hope you gave the person at Bath and Body Works your email address because word on the street is that they are going to start sending “specialized” coupons based on what you buy. Maybe you’ll be able to buy more and be sexy enough to not get jumped in public once again.

  5. I will be looking for the new “liquid sexy” dance video and the subsequent fad dance craze it will inspire. I will scamper off to buy this product now..I want my man to experience this man-aura smell you speak of.

  6. Chuck – Cool Water is like Drakkar Noir. It will never die and will always be sold.

    Shannon – I wish at Bath & Body Works they had a shower so I can test stuff in real world situations.

    Stacey – Remind me to never piss you off, because I’m afraid of what kind of revenge you might plot.

    Brie – I probably smelled Boy-orrible…I know, I’m reaching on that one.

    Kylie – But did he put the “cool” in Cool Water?

    Alisha – In high school, my classmates bathed in Brut.

    demondoll – I’m also dangerous in small doses.

    Clevegal42 – Unfortunately, my twin sister usually buys me the Bath & Body Works stuff, so she’ll probably be the one getting the emails.

    bikerbabeee – You just want your man to smell like me, right?

  7. Ahhhhhh. The mid 90s. Whole classrooms smelled of testosterone and some kind of guy cologne smelly stuff. ICK!

  8. liz – It would burn your eyes if I did that.

    Nevis – There’s only one Marvo and I can’t be spread so thin.

    Peachy – Something has to cover the testosterone.
