    Baxter of California and Malin Goetz are good choices IMO. Also alcohol and aluminum free (if that matters to you).

    ETA: if any SF people are gonna be at the Ryan Leslie show at Slim's on the 2nd, I'll be there

    I tried Aesop and there's no going back. Combine with merino tees for optimal performance. Pretty much spent the whole month of August in the same unwashed tshirt (packed sweltering commute, bike rides etc) #no grimy. Couldn't believe how well that thing worked. It does have a particular smell though, best to try it first since it's kinda expensive (the tiny bottle lasted me 6 months, not bad).

    I don't necessarily need high performance. I've never had an issue with the cheap stuff's functionality. But most of it smells cheap too. I spent 20 minutes at the store the other day smelling everything and didnt like any of it. i don't wear any other scent so it would be nice if my deodorant smelled good. Will check all those out. Keep recs coming if there's something you really like.

    i like 'earth science' lichen something or other. there's a scented one that's nice or an unscented (that actually works).

    I really like the Aesop deodorant as well thought I will agree with Sipang that it has a very unique smell. Very heavy then light then heavy at the end. I like it though and do not use it too often. I actually used my Baxter deodorant more (need to buy another) that has a much lighter, citrus smell. They are both good IMO. I like the Aesop because it is sprayed on, 1 good pump is enough for me. However, most these days I am not even wearing deodorant. Have some old cologne that also sees very little wear. FWIW the Aesop can stand alone as a cologne IMO. It really can turn heads and people are surprised at the smell. It smells of the East.

    I use waleda rose. Pretty sure its for women. But I like the smell and it does a good job of managing my stank.

    It also is certified by a variety of boards and organizations insisting it will not give me sarcoid :foo:

    Re: Buzz Bissinger: what a sad way to spend 500k. One would think Hermes, with its croc coats and riding crops, would be more fetish-appropriate.

    Aesop is good. I've used weleda sage before and it was irreplaceable during my back packing trips through Europe. Relatively inexpensive too.

    Tried sage too, but just loved the smell of rose more

    Sage was great though,. Certainly more traditionally masculine.


    This problem solved itself now that I pretty much have to wear slacks + shirt + tie

    The Aesop spray was a hassle for me sometimes I sprayed twice thinking I missed a spot....and the smell does not mix in well with the Florida heat and sweat, after the gym my odor was like a combo of sweat and cheap cologne, MissDB9 couldn't stand it either so had to go back to rotation of Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus (this has a nice faint clean scent) and Mens Science, those I recommend to anyone

    You need to appreciate a aesthetic without buying into it. Oftentimes you need to force yourself to do so. I love Needles EG etc. and would probably look pretty okay if that's all I wore. But I've chosen my aesthetic (dumpster diving nomad spaceman apparently) so that's what I'm going to stick to, at least until something better shows up.. At some point you need to settle down and unless you have infinite guap and ungodly styling ability it's the only thing you can do.
