I really enjoy Stirling and PAA deodorants but can't use them in a Texas summer. Really excited to try Stirling's new antiperspirant when it is released!

I have some PAA too, if you liked these you should also try the new Razorock deodorant stick. It is great, way better then the one in jar

I've been using Speick deodorant for years now and really like it.

I also enjoy the Speick stick.
However, I bought the product below about three years back, and was so impressed, I've exclusively used it to this date.  I get about 6 months use from a stick.
It has a very nice clean scent that has a bit of staying power, and I find its antiperspirant performance to be unmatched.

Fast forward . . . tried Schmidts Brand.

Try it, no need to thank me.

It works and is clean.

I heard praise about this from someone else, and the scents sounded nice too.
It's expensive, but I saw it on sale at Whole Foods, so I got a couple.
It's effective and does smell good too.
I wanted bergamot & lime, but that wasn't available.
So I got lavender & sage and cedar & juniper.

I've been using Arm & Hammer Essentials lately.  It's clear and really seems to work well.  Before that I was using a free tube of Native.  It worked great once I got past the whole initial irritation thing that they said was my body expunging the chemicals from my previous anti-persperant.  Hogwash.  Anyway, my body acclimated to it but there is no way I'm going to pay $12 for tube of deodorant.  Or $10 for that matter.  The A&H Essentials is less than $2 a tube and works great.  Doesn't take much product for each application to get a full day's worth of protection so a tube lasts a long time.  If Native was priced properly, maybe I'd think about using it again.  But their pricing is just insane.

This may come as a shock but I don't use deodorant.
 
35 years ago, I ran out of deodorant one day and used Aqua Velva as an aftershave and deodorant instead after my morning shower. my girlfriend at the time (now my wife) complimented my scent that evening and I went off the spray can and bought the biggest bottle of AV i could find (10 oz). she has the best sense of smell of anyone i have ever known so if the AV ever started failing me during the day or since I started using AV that way, she would not be shy to report the problem. No problem ever came up.

anyone else use a splash as a deodorant?

A very long time ago, when I was young and very stupid, I once used vodka for deo one very hung-over morning.

Does that count?

sure alcohol kills the bacteria that may make an odor. when did the human scent become offensive?

or in the words of Napoleon, Josephine, I will be home from the front in two weeks; don't wash.

Gentlemen, do keep in mind:
Potassium alum contains 10-15% aluminium sulfate. To my understanding due to the manufacturing process.

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alaune?wprov=sfti1

Sorry for the link in German language, but the English version lacks this info.

I do not use my alum block only as styptic agent, maybe 3 times per year.

Using some crystal thingies from other than a well known brand? 

Never ever.

I realize this is an old post, buy my suggestions would be Vanicream's deodorant and their anti-perspirant. They are both as mild as it gets.

Deodorant spray?


Suckers for things fougère (like me ... ) should give this new Speick deo spray a try.
Nice, really nice.
Will blend nicely with this other stuff.
Fully organic, no alum, no bs, as you would expect from Speick.
Recommended.

This has been an adventure for me. I live in South Texas so it's hot and humid. I also talk to large groups at times and sweat. I have tried so many deodorants I'm not certain I can list them all. I've enjoyed reading the thread because I'm willing to learn and try just about anything. What's frustrating is that I find one that works for several weeks and then begin to have problems, redness, burning, and clogged pores which is painful. Maybe I should rotate?

I use Pretty Frank natural deo and have nothing but good things to say about it. 

Might seem a little pricey at first glance -- it used to be about $10/stick but now is selling for $13/stick on Amazon -- however in my experience each stick lasts a long time. I find it more than worth it. 

Nice scents. Very effective. No staining. Comes in both a baking soda formulation and one without baking soda, for those who might have sensitivities.

(This product was formerly known as Primal Pit Paste: the company recently went through a rebranding. As far as I can tell, the new stuff is just as good as the old.)

Prior to Primal Pit Paste, I was using Schmidt's natural deo, which was also very effective. 

Unfortunately, Schmidt's started staining shirts (and there are lots of reports online of customers having allergic reactions or suffering rashes), so I moved on. 

A shame really -- and not just for my wardrobe, which was decimated by the staining -- since Schmidt's is economical and widely available at Target. 

When I reached out to Schmidt's customer service, they were nice but their solution to the staining issue was to offer a free stick of deodorant... of the same variety that stained so badly.

All told, I had to retire several hundred dollars worth of dress shirts. 

Soooo, my recommendation would be to be careful if you get the urge to try Schmidt's.  lol

I've been using the Arm & Hammer stick for years.  Unscented or the Fresh scents, depends on what my wife's asthma sensitivities can deal with.  Work just dandy for me.  We also use their toothpaste.
