Thread: Deodorant with cologne?
May be a silly question, but do you guys wear unscented deodorant when you wear cologne?
I use the same deodorant as always, it's not unscented, but doesn't interfere with anythinh
Agree. I use either scented or unscented. Never seems to get in the way of my fragrances.
Nope, I can't say my deodorant has ever overpowered any of the fragrances I wear.
I use scented deodorant. It never overpowers the fragrance.
Ive grown to dispise scented deodorant. Its usually low quality and gets obnoxious when my body temp rises. It serves no fuction when you wear perfume/cologne. So I only wear neutral anti-transpirant.
Check out some of the threads in Men's Grooming
While my preferred option is either unscented or matching, if neither of the two is readily available, I simply wear a discreetly, almost neutrally scented deodorant.
I wear arm and hammer (baking soda) deodorant every day now. It basically unscented, but I think there's a very mild amount of fragrance in it. It's still not nearly enough to draw attention away from the fragrance I'm wearing.
Until I discovered Arm and Hammer, I used to wear Old Spice.
Current Favorites (not in any particular order)
Hanae Mori HM EDT
Terre d'Hermes Parfum
Tom Ford Extreme
I use that fiji deodorant by Old Spice, it's only for the armpits so that sweat doesn't become too prominent smelling, but generally it never overpowers the fragrance I have on.
Speed Stick MUSK goes with almost everything. Works really well for people that like leather or tobacco frags.

I've wore Degree deodorant for years and have never had it overpower any fragrance and works wonders with my body chemistry.

2. Creed Aventus
3. Tom Ford Extreme
4. Gucci Pour Homme II
5. Terre d'Hermes
I usually wear the Body Shop White Musk for Men deo roll-on, and sometimes an unscented deodorant. I find that the White Musk roll-on doesn't interfere with my SOTD, is unnoticed or complements my SOTD. The Body Shops White Musk for Men is actually quite nice scent on its own, both the EdT and the deo.

For those who might be interested, I'd recommend Nancy Boy deodorants: http://www.nancyboy.com/Stealth-Deodorant-16p125.htm. They have a few choices (I go with the 'stealth' deodorant) and I prefer them since they're spray-on rather than the usual roll-on.
Yes, if I'm applying the scent and antiperspirant at the same time after a shower.
But more often I apply 24 hour or 48 hour antiperspirant after I've had a shower and am about to go to bed. So I use scented antiperspirant, and its scent is long gone by the time I get up and apply scent.
If I do accidentally apply scented antiperspirant during the day, then most are fougeres, and I'll apply a strong fougere scent which meshes in okay with it.
Started using one of those "natural" salt blocks to avoid my deodorant competing with my cologne.
Ugh! No. Deodorants stink. I either use alum or nothing at all. Alum word amazingly well and has no scent whatsoever but I prefer nothing. Granted I have a very sedentary job but I find that my scent combined with my cologne to be very interesting and appealing. The deodorants out there are vile; even the 'unscented,' which are just the scent of no scent. Why combine the reek of some deodorant with a fine perfume? To me it is a waste and an insult to the perfumer.
Yes, but I make my own.

Oh yes i wear deodorant. That is more important than spraying a cologne imo. I know some you guys are still funky thinking its cute not to wear deodorant because of your sotd.
Unscented deodorant & unscented laundry detergent.
Yes, I wear scented deodorant. I used Mitchum unscented deoderant for a while, but it caused stains to form on my shirts. Also, although it didn't have any added fragrance, the chemicals had their own faint but unpleasant smell.
I stick to Old Spice Original scent now. It does the job without being overpowering (or staining).
I only wear unscented antiperspirants...
I know this thread is old, but what good does wearing unscented deodorant do. Deodorant's job is to mask the smell of underarm odor.
People use deodorant and anti-perspirant interchangeably which is incorrect. An anti-perspirant clogs the pores to keep you from sweating. Anti-perspirants contain aluminum to clog the pores to keep you from sweating, no thanks.
I use Brut deodorant, been using it for years.
Wear what you want and don't listen to people who tell you that you didn't spend enough.
