Luxury has never been more available or desirable – we upgrade our cars with the latest features and treat ourselves to the swankiest dining experiences. But what about products like deodorant that we use on our bodies everyday? Most of us are simply reaching for the same brand we were brought up using. But do we really want to smell like an adolescent boy or a baby’s bottom? And can we be sure that these products aren’t doing us more harm than good? These companies are making sure our decadent experience of life makes it all the way to our underarms…
Fresh For the Lads
With a seductive scent developed by distinguished French perfumer Olivier Polge, Dolce&Gabbana The One For Men is perfect for the modern man with classic tastes. It features a spicy, oriental fragrance layered on top of tobacco with base notes of cardamom, ginger, cedarwood, and citrus spice accord.
If you’re sensitive to scents, the fragrance-free formula from Anthony Logistics for Men is for you. Herbal and botanical extracts naturally deodorize without alcohol or aluminum that might irritate sensitive skin.
The no-nonsense Clinique Antiperspirant Deodorant Stick dries instantly and offers non-sticky protection all day long. Plus, its invisible formula won’t leave unsightly stains on your favourite shirt.
Smellin’ Good, Gals!
The aluminum and parabens that make mainstream deodorants effective are thought to contribute to major health problems, such as breast cancer, and they cause many people to break out. Lavanila has ditched these harmful components in favour of soothing essential oil blends and their own beta-glucan technology to effectively fight odor while repairing your skin. Plus, it’s available in nine scintillating vanilla-based scents, like vanilla coconut and vanilla lavender.
If your sweat glands refuse to quit, MED e TATE offers the solution. It harnesses the highest concentration antiperspirant with the drying powers of botanicals to mimic the effects of Botox injections – without the painful needles. Rather than cumbersome prescription solutions, simply wipe your underarm with one of these towelettes and channel the inner peace of a blissfully sweat-free existence.
Undiluted sandalwood extract harmonizes the endocrine system (sweat doesn’t have to be stinky) while plant essential oils act as powerful deodorizers in Poetic Pits Underarm Charm by Living Libations. A truly natural deodorant alternative, this product rolls on but dries quickly and works to keep you dry all day long.
If your usual deodorant isn’t living up to your discerning tastes, try upgrading to one of these and find a product that truly meets your needs.
