    Yeah but how many people added it to their "fitting room" but refuse to show any further interest?

    haha, the concept of the fitting room is good, but in practice people just add it and then completely forget about it. Or they see price drops and then just wait for it to get to some kind of absurd low point. After a certain point I just remove the listing, and then I'll usually get a few messages of people asking me if I still have it.

    Aesop only make the spray deodorant, right? (no stick/roll on?)

    Aesop smells really nice but I don't like how its packaged and it burns a little

    Do people seriously pay $19+ for a roll on, I use one from Nivea, which is like $3.

    Odaban = best antiperspirant. Yes, it contains aluminum, but I use my armpits to wrap dinner leftovers so it's pretty useful.

    You can also smell some spices in the fragrant, which I imagine is what caused the slight irritation to burning sensation. Granted, the spring in the pump broke/jammed resulting in limited use within a 2.5 month time frame. I don't think this particular deodorant has longevity if you plan on using it in rotation. I felt like it spoiled, which was when it really burned upon my last use followed by immediate disposal.

    I like Baxter as it has a natural citrus smell and the roll on is just more practical.

    Nordstrom and mr porter. As far as in-store I dunno, check the Baxter webpage.
    And yeah $18 for a deodorant that will last ~4 months is nothing

    I've been using Arm/Hammer natural shit for a LONG time. But it gets cakey. I also need to get some new hair shit too. Got some american crew shampoo and it dries the shit out of my hair.

    American Crew is excellent as an antiperspirant. They don't tell you on the label, but trust me.

    Arm and Hammer for me. Tom's irritates the shit out of my skin. I've also tried the Men's Science stuff which is pretty good, but is more expensive and doesn't last as long as A&H.

    Yeah the nivea sensitive or nivea silver are both pretty good. I've heard you can't get it in the us though.

    Also, women's roll on from various brands tends to be better than men' for some reason.

    Is there are an active thread for Acne studios?
    I did a search but the only one I could find hasn't been touched since '09.

    OccultaVexillum on your search for a basic heather grey sweatshirt did you find any of them that fit a bit large? I want a decent one, but was hoping to find one which was a bit blocky so I could fit a medium and not worry about the arms being too long since I'm 5'7". Reigning champ medium too small, though those are fairly slim.
