Ironically, I learned a good answer to this from an old poster named sampler_mike. Mitchum unscented. I like the gel, myself. Then if you want, spray the frag underarm, if you want low-key, day-long, heat-induced sillage, that's similar to a deo stick. Or if you want different sillage, spray differently, like divatologist's method. I have to say that Mitchum unscented has worked amazingly well for me. I've used other unscented deos, too.
Just another reason to spring for the "gift sets" when you can. You pick up the deo for less, and I have to say that some of them are much better than using Mitchum. The people in the industry who work on formulating these things deserve a lot of credit. They seem to tinker with the scents in the sticks remarkably well, making the deo sticks hold the scent nicely and strongly without going strange. If you do buy these things, you'll notice that they don't smell the same as the EDT. Similar, but not the same. So in a sense, I'm encouraging you to get the stick if you can. I have not had any problem with Mitchum harming scents, but it just can't match up to a good deo stick.
