I don't actually smell it on a lot of guys. Personally I would say that Axe is way too overused but apart from that there are no other fragrances that really bother me in terms of too many guys using them because most scents smell a little different from one guy to another anyway. However, I wouldn't say it's a favorite of mine.
My personal favorite scents on guys are Guerlain - L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme Extreme, Bond No.9 - New Haarlem, Amouage - Lyric Man, Serge Lutens - Fumerie Turque, Juicy Couture - Dirty English, and several others. I love cozy, gourmand scents on guys as well as animalic, rich scents and inky vetivers. Incense and amber are notes I love to smell in both men and women's perfumes and I like castoreum too. Also it varies between guys because some guys wear some scents better than other depending on their personality, looks, and style.
