Deodorant is one thing I can't live without which is why I can't understand why there are people even women who do not even bother using one when they actually smell so bad. In the place where I am now, deodorants do not seem so important because there's just a lot of smell going on everywhere and as what I realized, seems like most grocery stores, sell deodorants only during summer because it is so hard to find one the rest of the year.

It is nowhere near that important to me.
Food, water and air are the only things I cannot live without...

It's important to me...I was in a store recently where there were 5 or 6 different women who weren't wearing it and who had a whole smell cloud following them around. It was a thrift store. I imagine they were shopping there because it was time for the semi-annual burning of their wardrobe which had become too stinky to wear. My daughter, with her overactive teenage hormones, kept trying to discreetly sniff her own armpits to make sure she wasn't the source of the odor.

Anyhow, if they didn't sell deodorant year-round here, I would just buy extras to get through the winter. For me it's not just the odor control, I don't like to go around all sweaty.

Of course, one can live without deodorant, but, otherwise, it is extremely important to me. If I had to be around people who didn't use it and I could smell that horrible underarm smell, it would be a terrible situation. I realize there are places in the world where using the product isn't considered a necessity, but, in my opinion, those who don't use it, STINK.

Deodorant does not hinder sweat... antiperspirant does that.

It's not the most important thing in the world, but it is important.

I like to smell clean and fresh.

I can't stand being around smelly people. I spent a year abroad (I won't name the country) when I was in high school, and so many people there reeked. Most of them took a bath once a week, changed clothes once a week, and only used ineffective deodorants--not anti-perspirants. Lots of people had a cloud of stench around them all the time. So revolting!

You probably would want to be around me if I went deodorant free for more than about 36 hours.


On an autocorrecting iDevice.

Deoderant is on the same par with T.P., soap, toothpaste, etc. There is a continuous stock of it, at least three at any given time.
