I admit. I am a bit of a bay rum fanatic. While reading just about everything I can get my hands on regarding its storied history, I stumbled upon an article suggesting bay rum can be used as an underarm deo. Today I splashed some West Indies bay rum under my arms, much in the same manner I apply after shave. I was very impressed how well it held up. The scent fades quickly, but late in the day it is still masking body odor. Tomorrow I am going to try Superior 70 and the next will be Dominica. It does nothing for sweat, but I have never used antiperspirants so the difference is unremarkable in my case.
