lol this actually gives me nostalgia, I've definitely taken trade in on games that smelled intensely of Axe. If you're in a pinch, it does have alcohol and some propellant in it too and you can be assured that something made to spray on your skin isn't going to dissolve plastic, just leave it smelling like a 90s locker room.

He was never welcome back at my house after that. Might've been able to forgive him if it had been my collection of Cure CD's, but god dammit, the games were a step too far.

Glycol distearate is about the only thing in Axe that might gradually act on polycarbonate because of the stearic acid however, as an emulsifier in addition to making it look a bit shinier and newer in the short term it also will provide some protection against air which after UV light is the second biggest greatest damaging element to plastics in the real world versus your fantasy world where cartridge cases are apparently made of paper mache and have a patina like a civil war revolver that must be preserved.
