    Default Deodorant without musk

    Hi, I'm new here.
    I have a pretty specific question.

    My husband uses Old Spice Pure Sport as a deodorant. It's effective, and has a nice, benign sporty fragrance.
    I've always liked it on him, but have come to realize that the base note to that fragrance must be musk. And as a women,
    I tend to notice the most insignificant of smells (or so I'm told!).

    I really don't care for this leftover musk lingering on his shirts. Can anyone recommend a deodorant that
    does not have musk as a fragrance note?
    It has to be a deodorant (no AP, please)

    I've looked at the recommendation for MensScience deodorant,
    but that contains tee tree oil, which can act as an estrogenic compound. Eek.

    There are many types of musks, which all smell different. So if a deodorant has musks in the base, do not assume you're not going to like it, it could be a different musk that you actually like. I have not smelled the old spice you cite, so unfortunately I don't know what it smells like exactly.

    My favorite scent for a deodorant is Caron pour un homme, lavender and vanilla, very classic. I don't perceive it as musky, but of course, there's no way to know unless you try it.

    Btw: I did not know about tea tree oil. It seems to be quite popular with beauty products for either sex- hard to think it has such effects. But who knows ...

    Cacio, thanks so much. I had never considered that there are different types of musk. I guess I assumed it
    was a general type of smell. I love lavender and vanilla, so I will keep your suggestion
    in mind!

    I detect no musky scent in Adidas Pure Game deodorant or the Speed Stick Active Fresh - to keep the price similar to the OS Pure Sport, both are effective and do what they are supposed to do.
