One more reason to try before you buy

Today I am wearing a new antiperspirant which states, on its pretty pink package that it is 'cotton' scented. Every time I move my arms, though, I get a distinctive whiff of something way worse than girl-sweat.

I guess it was my misguided optimism that caused me to expect the smell of freshly aired sheets as opposed to that of a teenage boy's jock socks.

Thanks for the tippage! In the deep south, we don't need anything else to worry about in the sauna-like heat.

Maybe it's just wrong for you.
I love the smell of Euphoria scent by Calvin Klein. It's lovely. I like it so much I can smell it on other women and recognize it as Euphoria. But on me???
NO!!
It turns into something sold by Avon that old ladies wear.

I feel your pain. Any scent by "Degree" does that to me. It's not good. NOT GOOD AT ALL.

At least it jock "socks" and not something else.
I love the ones that claim to be "unscented" but still SMELL. What's that all about?

Debbie said...

There is one brand of deodorant that my husband is allowed to wear. Everything else smells so putrid on him. I think you have found your putrid!

Girl you should have had some spritzer body spray to at least cover up what sounds like funk. Bless your heart.

Kat said...

You mean you don't walk through the store and try on each deodarant before your purchase it? Hmmmm?

lizspin said...

Don't you hate it when your daughters "borrow" your deodorant so you get stuck wearing your husband's and smelling like old spice all day???

Put your new one out in a conspicuous place and one of those kids will steal it for her own!!!!

We'll see who's laughing then!!!

As the mother of two boys that fill the house with jock socks scent, I feel for your co-workers!

And seriously Kat - you go around the store trying on deodarant? You rub your pits and then put it back? That's just wrong! Man, you think you know someone......

I HATE buying new deodorant! At least it's cheap - try Dove the scents aren't bad and definitely doesn't resemble jock socks ;)

You should volunteer your pits for the next test trials.

MizAngie said...

Mmmmmm...jock socks. My second fave scent behind Icy Hot (similar to Bengay). Oh wait - I almost forgot the rotten smell that shoulder pads get after two-a-days in a hot Texas August.

I love my job.

Diane said...

I wondered what that smell was.

Janie said...

Lord. That's funny!

Thanks for coming by and leaving the cool comments on my son's birthday post!

See, I thought we were just getting a whiff from the dump but that explains it all.

Which is why I never try new deodorant. Now remembering to actually put on said deodorant is a challenge.
