5 of the best smelling deodorants for men
Because no one wants to catch a whiff of your BO

Choosing a nice-smelling deodorant is just as important as picking a beautiful cologne, as it needs to mask your body odour throughout the day with something more nose-friendly.
You have two choices when it comes to deodorant: roll-on or spray. There’s benefits to both - sprays can be applied liberally all over the body, and they dry quicker than other formulas, making them a great choice for the busy gents rushing out the door in the morning. On the other hand, roll-ons are great for a more precise and targeted approach… just don’t forget to let it settle onto skin before putting a shirt on or you could be left with stains on your clothing.
Now that you’ve picked your formula fave, it’s time to find the right scent. Here are our favourite smelling deodorants in the men’s arena right now.
If you’re... a minimalist
You’ll like: Dove Men+Care Antiperspirant Deodorant Clean Comfort
Why: This popular buy is strong enough to protect you all day long, but the scent is subtle enough that blends in softly with your favourite cologne.
If you’re… the adventurous type
You’ll like: Old Spice Swagger Deodorant Stick
Why: Love the smell of zingy citrus and bergamot? Then you’ll want this 24-hour formula in your life (hint: it’s also been compared to YSL’s cult Rive Gauche scent).
If you’re… not one to fade into the background
You’ll like: Lynx Africa Deodorant Body Spray
Why: Far from its teenage-esque predecessors, this scent features a masculine blend of amber, African spices, and fruity undertones that is surprisingly irresistible and totally worthy of trying.
