A MAN who unknowingly used his partner’s mango and passion fruit shower gel is utterly disgusted at how delightful he smells.
Jordan Gardner meant to lather his body in a gel named ICE LIGHTNING SUPER CLEAN FOR MEN with a pungent chemical smell, but instead found himself assaulted by a soft, silky liquid that magically transported him to a tropical jungle of odours.
He said: “It was horrible. I normally use a shower gel that’s basically multi-purpose cleaning fluid packaged in a macho bottle resembling a round of ammunition. But this one was all weird and soothing and made me feel like a new woman.
“I want to wash with something that promises to make me strong enough to wrestle a shark. Not something that will feel nice on my body or make others think I smell good. What’s the point in a shower gel that does that?
“Real men aim to smell as unappealing as possible. I don’t even walk too near flowers in case I pick up some of their scent. And don’t even get me started on eating fruit. I’m not sexist but blokes shouldn’t do that.”
Gardner’s girlfriend Lucy Parry said: “It can be very dangerous using a shower gel meant for the opposite gender. I once used his by mistake and spent the day fighting the uncontrollable urge to call people ‘bro’.”
