    I have been using designer brand deos ever since puberty, starting with Boss Black I believe, having moved through most Boss and Calvin Klein variants since, with the occasional Bulgari, Davidoff, Miyake, Armani, RL/Polo and more. (Yes, definitely an aquatic period in there, but that's about the only 'trend' I can detect, scent wise.)

    Having cycled through a few lower cost, less parabens, alcohol and aluminum versions, now, I cannot seem to find any that really are effective. A couple of those I have tried have seemed to INCREASE perspiration, in fact. Believe that was the deo cream from Kiehl's. MenScience Advanced Deodorant worked quite well for a while then seemed to wane in effect. I stay away from the white ones due to the discolouration most of these cause on tops. It also seems to me that the ones with alcohol in fact are more effective?

    Suggestions, gentlemen? Ideally obtainable outside of the UK but there's always that interweb. And it needs to be stick, mind you, not roll-on.

    A decent one I tried a while back was DR Harris Windsor, come to think of it.

    Yup, that's the one I was thinking of. That said I always use Sanex rollers, but if they do a stick too, I'd try them.

    I really enjoyed TOBS sandalwood sticks, from a group buy a couple of years back. Though did not stop the sweat on the hottest of days. I don't usually care for 48+ plus anti perspirants but as you know from the scent of the day thread, L'Oréal's versions are nice. Haven't tried their sticks.

    The Origins is a nice and 'safe' one. Scentless and skin-friendly, does a fairly good job.

    Do you want deodorant or anti-perspirant? If the former I'm a big fan of the alum stick.

    I use my wifes Sure Black/white which is effective (most of the day) and no colouring on shirts..

    This quote from said site explains my experience with a few other 'natural' deos:

    Beyond that, I have a few to look into now. Thanks, all!

    I can't use any 'antiperspirant' or anything with aluminum since I get a wicked pit-rash.
    My current fav deodorant is...Tabac.

    Tabac stick is nice - scent wise I find it slightly sweeter and lighter than the a/s splash.

    I've found the Body Shop Macca root deoderant very effective.

    I have 2 sticks at the moment and find both great. Aqua di Parma Colonia Intensa and Penhaligons Sartorial.
