Twitter determines my aroma

I undertook my first piece of crowd-sourcing today.  It related to my armpits.

Over the course of my adult life, I’ve gradually settled on the regular contents of my bathroom cabinet.  Dax is my hair gel of choice.  I use Boots’ range of moisturisers and shave gel—the latter rather rarely.  Euthymol has become my toothpaste of choice.  And the Groom Mate Platinum Xl Nose has a lifetime guarantee—a fabulous product, if I may say so.

But I’ve rarely been happy with my underarm deodorant.  In the States, I settled on something called Speed Stick, which was fabulous.  But they converted it from a stick to a gel after we left, and after trying the latter I deemed it not worth importing.

So I used Gillette’s gel for a while, not being overly happy with it but neither being happy with any of its obvious competitors.  So on the way to Boots this morning, I turned to Twitter.  I asked for advice.  And advice I received:

I’ve gone for what I believe is a unisex Mitchum.  Three, actually.  It will be aired for the first time tomorrow, and the Twitter community will be kept informed as to its progress and my satisfaction.  Meanwhile, if any of my colleagues suffer any adverse effects, please update me accordingly.

    Mitchum – big mistake.

    Mitchum, bad stuff, sticky film under your arms for hours and it dries into snowflakes by half day. Sure sports is dry, quick to dry and non sticky. Roll ons and pastes are the nemesis of good shirts and sure has a no aroma version, just plain dryness. Of course, you could choose dryclor and only use a deo (as the ones mentioned are both deo and antiperspirants)

    Have you thought of just deciding on your own? 😉

    Vaseline Intensive Care 24 hour roll on – all the way. you need to let it dry before putting a shirt on but otherwise it’s superior all round. No strong smell, no sticky residue, generally very effective unless you’re an extreme sweater.
