I have the same problem with unpleasant deodorant scents....until I discovered D R Harris Windsor. What a great find! It's high-priced but a stick lasts a very long time. And the scent is subtle, manly and keeps the armpits happy all day.
+1 on Arm & Hammer deodorant only ( no anti perspirant). I usually get the unscented but if they are out of it the Fresh works for me and doesnt interfere with my aftershave scent.I was in the same boat with you until I found this. I love this stuff. It doesn't smell fake at all and doesn't make my pits itch like all the other crap out there loaded with chemicals. Very fresh Pine-ish Lavender scent that fits with every single shaving soap and cologne I own, almost everything has lavender in it!
