    Default Drug Store Deodorants and Body Washes that go with Fragrances!

    I can't see myself buying a 20 dollar deodorant stick or a 35 dollar small TUBE of body wash that goes with an EDT/EDP. (The ones I have are from gift sets.) These are my cheaper alternatives for layering /What I've heard that other people use. I know fragrance-collecting can get pretty expensive, so I'm starting this thread to save Basenoters some cash!
    Kouros Cologne Sport - Speed Stick "Musk" Deodorant
    Angel Men/A*Men- Axe/Lynx Dark Temptations
    Issey Miyake Pour Homme- St. Ives Energizing Citrus Body Wash
    Polo Blue- Old Spice High Endurance Conditioning Hair and Body Wash
    Mugler Cologne- Irish Spring EVERYTHING!
    Certain Creeds- Dove for Men Extra Fresh. (I've heard some creeds work well with this one)
    Chanel Platnium Egoiste- [Mix of GIT/CW and Fierce lol]- Gillette Products.

    What do you guys use?

    Dove for Men Extra Fresh goes well with any fragrance I use.

    I'm allergic to most OTC deodorants, so I use the Crystal stone which is unscented.

    For body wash, I think the Dr. Bronners Peppermint smells great, is invigorating, and doesn't clash with anything. In fact, I have a theory that the oil it is made with helps hold fragrances longer.
    TOP 5
    1. Montale Wild Aoud
    2. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    3. Montale Red Vetyver
    4. Montale Aoud Lime
    5. Le Labo Vetiver 46

    And I almost forgot!
    Kenneth Cole's Reaction smells a lot like... Old Spice LiveWire Body Wash.

    My wardrobe is split down the middle - Orientals and spicy Chypres on one hand, Citrus and botanical Greens on the other. I do try and buy shower gels that go well with them.

    I buy a lot of Body Shop shower gels - buy 4 and you get each half price. I buy the Pink Grapefruit, Sweet Lemon and Vanilla, they all work well with a bunch of my stuff.
    +1 for Lynx Dark Temptation shower gel with Play Intense and sometimes B*Men. Their new one, Excite, would be a good combo with 1 Million, Only the Brave etc.
    Cussons Shea Butter and Honey is another good cheapy, this plus Giorgio for Men goes really well.
    The Original Source range is also really good and not bad on price. I get their Mint and Tea Tree, Lemon and Tea Tree, and Lime, and I'm looking out for Eucalyptus and Lime Basil and Orange Oil and Ginger which seem to be new ones. I dont own or like A*Men, but they have a Chocolate and Mint shower gel that would probably be an even better combo than Dark Temptation.

    Edit: checked out Original Source Orange Oil and Ginger. Really good. Would go well with my 2 Declaration flankers.

    i actually have about every flavor of Tom's of Maine deoderant, and match it with whatever fragrance I'm wearing. works really well, and Tom's doesn't overpower like synthetic deodorants do.

    Honeysuckle Rose: for my rose-based scents
    Woodspice: for my woody and spice scents
    Lemongrass: for my fresh eau de colognes
    Lavender: for my lavender scents
    Calendula: for my sweet/modern scents
    Apricot: same as above
    Unscented: when nothing above works

    i don't try to match them anymore. this is actually a good time to indulge in all the sport deodorants and aquatic shower gels you wouldn't buy in a cologne. just IMO of course.

    i've tried boss bottled with victory league deo and shower gel.
    terre d'hermes and old spice pure sport and tdh shower gel.
    burberry for men with st. ives citrus shower gel and arm and hammer sport deodorant gel
    kenzo power with shower gell and mitchum unscented

    I concur with Dove Extra Fresh and Creed Millesimes pairing up well.
    Old Spice Matterhorn is a dead ringer for Millesime Imperial to my nose, albeit with much cheaper ingredients.
    Neutrogena Rainbath mates well with any amber-rich fougere, particularly Canoe and Brut, but including Rive Gauche PH, Azzaro PH, and Pinaud Clubman.
    Every Man Jack Spiced Pepper, which sadly seems to be discontinued, is a perfect prelude to Tommy Bahama.

    I use Mitchum Greenwood with GIT. Could that be the one you were thinking of?
