L'Occitane Eau des Baux Stick Deodorant For Men

L'Occitane Eau des Baux Stick Deodorant had two things going for it: it's an alcohol-free formula which I thought would be great for the husband's sensitive skin, and the scent- a blend of cypress and cool incense- is beautiful.

 I picked the deodorant the last time I was at my local L'Occitane store and happily gave it to the Blond. He was delighted with the scent and eager to try it on. The good news is that his armpits have never smelled so good. The bad news is that it only lasted for a few hours before nature took its course. I tried the Eau des Baux Stick myself on a day I was not going to leave the house (a lesson learned from other deodorant testings) and had to agree- it doesn't work unless you're willing and able to reapply every three to four hours.

Bottom Line: Get the shower gel instead.

L'Occitane Eau des Baux Stick Deodorant ($16) is available at every L'Occitane store and online.

  1. I don't care for scented deodorants -- I want to be able to smell my perfume not something coming from my armpits. I love Mitchum's unscented gel deodorant, something my teenage son disdained for his scented Axe. Recently, we were away and he forgot to bring the Axe. When he tried the Mitchum, he was shocked that he didn't smell all day. Now he does as I do -- uses Mitchum and then applies scent (he is currently between Carvan's Vetivert and Hermes Pamplemousse Rose), and he's never smelled better!

  2. Have I ever told you how much it cracks me up that you call him "the Blond?!"

    I read this post with interest because my dear H has extremely sensitive armpits, has tried everything and thus far he turns rashy with everything. At present he's not wearing deodorant (!!) But he showers about 2x per day and wears a bit of cologne so I've never noticed a, shall we say, European odor ;-)
