Should I wear axe bodywash?

The other day, when staying in a vacation house with some friends, in the shower, lacking soap, I washed my pits with a travel bottle of Axe bodywash that happened to be sitting there. I was a bit horrified because their advertising was so overwhelmingly lame that I was worried I might smell pretty well...overwhelming.
Anyway, a few hours later, my friend was standing next to me and said "what's that smell" and leaned in to smell it. Friend is a younger female. I said "Axe, is it awful?" And she said "no I kind of like it".
Mind you we are all folk musicians.
We discussed briefly how I'm pretty much neutral smelling, which I prefer over having a BO problem but not really something to write home about.
So I've been considering the idea: should I use this Axe bodywash or something of that sort? I would hope that the smell would be subtle rather than overwhelming.
I would say that I'm ethically against people screwing with their smells, except that I usually love the smell of women's hair which is most likely because of shampoo.
