That Last Bit of Deodorant

I wear deodorant because it smells good and sweat does not. I prefer Old Spice. I get the sticks and stay away from the gels. The gel is too mushy and squishy and takes a little longer to set in. Deodorant sticks go on smoother and seem to last longer. The only problem is when you get down to that last bit of deodorant, when the plastic starts to poke through and scrape your armpits when you apply it. You know that it’s time to go to the store and get more deodorant, but you’re too lazy so you fight through the pain and use it for as long as there are traces of the stick still remaining. Put off today what you can do tomorrow. Nobody is judging you.

Old Spice Bearglove

Bearglove is the newest scent from Old Spice and it is a terrible, terrible idea. Let’s start with the basics. I’m a straight male living in San Francisco. I can’t buy a deodorant called Bearglove without people questioning my sexual orientation. If you don’t know what a bear is, try searching for San Francisco bears and see what comes up. It won’t be pictures of Pablo Sandoval. It’s kind of obvious that Old Spice is trying to be like Axe and recapture the youth market, but they don’t know how to do that. You can tell by their marketing that they are clueless. Axe has an ad campaign centered on young males using their products and having women throwing themselves at them. Axe claims that sluts will sleep with you if you use their product. Meanwhile Old Spice chose to call a scent Bearglove, which is awful similar to Bear Love, and it doesn’t help that the label art depicts two bears almost in a 69 position. That’s not appealing to the right demographic they are trying to get. It’s like targeting straight males with a line of anal condoms called SodoMe. It’s not going to happen. Go back to the drawing boards.

Old Spice Hawkridge Deodorant

Hawkridge is one of the newest scents from Old Spice. It comes in body wash, body spray, and in deodorant form. I got a stick of the anti-perspirant & deodorant, and my arm pits are much nicer to be around now. It smells earthy, musky, and slightly fruity, with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. It reminds me of a fruit bowl that’s been sitting out for a few days… it smells sweet and old at the same time. It’s not as crisp or as sharp as Pure Sport, but it’s a nice alternative and it’s better than switching brands. It also leaves less white residue than most other anti-perspirants. Try it. Or don’t try it. I really don’t care what you do, as long as you put on something to mask your stench.

Old Spice Wolfthorn Deodorant

Wolfthorn is a new scent from Old Spice. Hopefully you’ve seen the commercials for it, because they are fucking hilarious. The tagline for it says that it’s For Nocturnal Creatures, so I guess it’s good for clubbing or bar hopping. But it has a sunshiny feel to it. It has a really crisp and fruity smell, it reminds me of tropical-flavored bubble gum or candy. But it doesn’t taste as good. I got the Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant version, and I’ve noticed that it leaves less residue than other the other Old Spice anti-perspirants. The less mess, the better. This is a good deodorant. It makes you sweat less, it makes you smell better, and it lasts all day. What more do you want from deodorant? And it has a cool name. When someone asks what you are wearing, you can whisper Wolfthorn… how classy is that?

Old Spice Denali Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant

Guys sweat and sweat smells bad and guys need to smell good to get girls. And so they invented deodorant to keeps you from smelling bad. It wasn’t enough, and so they upped the ante and made anti-perspirant so you don’t sweat either. Old Spice is the best deodorant for guys. It’s like a tradition that passes from father to son. Everyone’s used Old Spice at some point. The Denali scent “smells like wilderness, open air & freedom”.  It’s a very crisp, clean scent, and the ladies like to smell my armpits when I wear it. Look out for white powder residue, that shit gets everywhere.
