    I’m going to use it as cologne, coz chicks dig guys who smell like gun cleaning kits.

    As loathe as I am to use obvious and hackneyed Internet expressions – but seriously dude, WTF?!

  • Kurt

    That’s hilarious – when I told my wife about this she got a real “deer in the headlights” look on her face.

  • Consumer requests? Who? I didn’t ask for this.

  • Brian

    What about cologne?

    • Brian, you mean you don’t use it as cologne already? Some guys swear it makes the ladies go wild.

  • Karl B

    Will it be available as cologne next?

    I’ve always wanted to make cosmoline scented candles by grinding up trashed Mosin Nagant rifle stocks.

  • MrMaigo

    Its not cologne, but I’m sure they’re working on it now

  • subase

    This is perfume is actually for FEMALE use not male. I personally prefer the smell of petrol on my woman.

  • Brian

    I never wear cologne, deodorant on the other hand….

    As leaky as the new plastic bottles tend to be, you can just leave one out and get the same effect.
