    Default Do you try to match cologne/deodorant?

    I wear a few different scents but usually the same deodorant every day

    Sometimes I feel I'm contradicting myself by clashing deodorant and cologne scent

    What do you do? What deodorant do you wear?

    I wear unscented Tom's of Maine Natural Sensitive Care Deodorant Stick. No clash to worry about and I only have to stock one type of deodorant.

    Also: it is aluminum free, kosher, and halal.

    Yes, if I cannot get the deodorant belonging to the same product range with the fragrance, I tend to use either unscented or very discreetly scented deodorant.

    Matching cologne/fragrance to deodorant would be an unnecessary hassle. No way.

    Default Re: Do you try to match cologne/deodorant?

    That would be too much. I wear one deodorant. Today, I couldn't find the deodorant I usually wear and ended up wearing the Mesmerize deodorant that came with the cologne (Avon Mesmerize). I wore Dunhill Desire red cologne today, which doesn't smell much different than the Mesmerize, so I felt my cologne and deodorant were pretty in sync. lol

    Use an unscented product like Kiss My Face Active Enzyme, Earth Sciences Lichen or the deodorant crystal and solve the problem entirely.

    These products eliminate odor by killing the bacteria that cause odor, not by masking it.

    Matching deodorant with cologne is a waste of money. Most matching deodorant is of low quality and only last for a 2-3 hours maybe less.

    I use Lab Series Antiperspirant Deodorant stick which is unscented. Expensive but works like a charm.

    Has anyone tried not using deodorant for a while until the odor starts coming out of your armpits then you wear fragrance? The blended scent must be funny.

    I wear Certain Dry it is a roll on which you apply at night and only once a week and I do NOT sweat under my arms under any conditions - therefore I do not wear deodorant.

    Try to go with a neutral deodorant. The hard part can be matching a soap/cream for shaving and aftershave with a cologne.

    Thumbs up Re: Do you try to match cologne/deodorant?

    As far as deodorants go, nothing beats a mineral salt block. Not only does the $5 block last 6+ months, it eliminates ALL odor for at least an entire day if applied liberally.

    Seriously, I apply the salt block in the mornings after I get out of the shower, go all day without any odor whatsoever, and wake up the next morning with virtually no odor at all. My underarms smell almost as fresh in the mornings as they did when I exited the shower the previous morning. This stuff is truly amazing.

    One downside, however, is that it must be applied quite liberally, and must be applied to clean skin. It only prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria, so if the bacteria/odor is already present, the salt block will do nothing for you until the area is washed with soap. The other downside is that this is simply a block of mineral salts, so it won't act as an antiperspirant. This doesn't bother me though, as I am allergic to antiperspirant bars.

    Most local drug store chains sell mineral salt deodorant sticks and sprays. I urge everyone to try it if you haven't already.

    Default Re: Do you try to match cologne/deodorant?

    I enjoy deodorant/anti-perspirant scents as well as EDT/Aftershave scents so I tend to mix and match. I do generally prefer APs though as they last longer on me but aren't so overpowering. Lynx/Axe work a treat for me as does Brut and Addiction. They're all of a Faberge origin and tend to work quite well, unlike the other well known brands.

    I do try to keep the scents similar (although Brut AP usually gets combined with the Brut Splash) but sometimes I also match the Lynx deos/APs with the corresponding aftershave.

    If I'm wearing a different AP to EDT/Aftershave then I usually only put a small spray under the arms, this way it keeps me fresh all day but the EDT/Aftershave is generally more potent and noticable. Once that wears off later in the day, the AP then takes over as the dominant scent, as it should do.
    My Current 5 stars..... Brut, Lynx Java, Lynx Oriental, Lynx Musk, Lynx Inca, Lynx Fever, Addiction Spice Fire, Hugo Energise, Sean Jean Unforgivable, Burberry Touch, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Mle, cKBe & cK1

    I like what I like, so sue me!

    Just as an aside...if you want a cheap deodorant that exactly matches Kouros Cologne Sport, you should pick up a stick of "Musk" by Speedstick. They are so similar it's almost ridiculous. I imagine that this would also work well with Kouros.

    I always use unscented deo/antiprespirants. They do what they are meant to do, while the frags, well, fragrance.

    I have 3 designer deodorants to match the scents (Lise Watier Neiges, Chrome Legend, and Chrome), so the rest of my scents get an unscented deodorant.

    The only frag I have a deo stick of is my Zirh Ikon, because the gift set from Marshalls came with one. Otherwise, it's my trusty deodorant crystal all the way.

    I do.
    Dove for Men-Extra Fresh Deo/Old Spice Matterhorn - Any fresh scent I wear, from Issey Miyake L'eau D'Issey PH, Nautica Voyage, CK One, Versace Man Eau Fraiche...

    Old Spice After Hours/Axe Dark Temptation- Anything sweet/spicy, Angel or Le Male.

    Most of the time I stick with fresh deos...since they just smell clean, inoffensive, and they don't clash with anything!

    I like to try to match the scents together i like to use

    Irish Spring Mennan Speed Stick with Sung Homme by Alfred Sung cologne,i believe they match well.
    Axe Dark Temptation with Givenchy Play Intense they seem very similar.
    And Musk Deoderant with either Curve Crush or Musc Ravageur by frederic Malle.
    Top 5

    2. Invasion Barbare by MDCI

    3. Green Irish Tweed by Creed

    4. Rive Gauche Pour Homme by YSL

    5. Gendarme

    Default Re: Do you try to match cologne/deodorant?

    I tend to like green or musky fragrances. Therefore I try to use a green or musky deodorant stick :

    Brut
    Speed Stick- Fresh
    Speed Stick - Musk
    Irish Spring Stick

    The musk stick goes with just about everything.

    Also something to consider is buying deodorant sticks overseas (americans). I noticed they use more fragrance is other countries even for the same product produced by an american company.

    Mixing fragrance with a deodorant is a must IMO but it must blend well. Play around with it.

    I'm the same as you, I change my fragrance every day bu use the same deodorant. But recently ive been trying to look for a great unscented deodorant. I use old spice and some of their scents overpower the fragrance especially in the summer.
