My Other Half's favourite EDT and after shave is Joop Homme so he thought he had got a bargain the other week when he ordered a bottle of it from an online fragrance shop for just £9.99. When the package came he opened it and then at first look after taking the bottle out of the box was that it was a fake as the colour was very faint and it looked completely different to what he is used to wit the bright pink of the normal EDT. He was just going to ask me to have a look about how to send it back and complain about it being a fake when I noticed the words Mild Deodorant on the front of the box and we realised that his bargain was in fact a completely different product to what he thought he had ordered.
His first reaction to this was a load of swearing and cursing and how he was going to send it back for a refund but then I said to leave it until the next day and see what he thought then, he might at least try it out to see what it is like anyway.
He decided to give it a try instead of sending it back but thought it would be better for him to try it on a night out and to keep his normal deodorant for work wear. He does suffer a lot from sweating and finds it hard to have a nice deodorant that works for him so he was thinking that this one would not be enough to work for an evening out as it just looked like a pinky water in the bottle. I said to him, he didn't know what the other deodorants look like in the cans as they are not see through so they might look just as clear and liquidy as this bottle.
The next time we went out he thought he would try it out. He gave himself a good squirt after showering but insisted I take the bottle with me in my bag just in case it didn't last and he needed to re-apply it. We were only going to the local pub to meet some family for a few drinks so nothing energetic like clubbing or anything (not that we would be doing this anyway lol).
The deodorant sprays out just like the EDT does and it smells lovely, exactly the same as the proper scent but a bit milder. It is a really nice scent though. He found that it felt nice when he sprayed it on, it didn't sting or anything and he said he felt comfortable wearing it. It was also nice that it complemented his EDT scent so he didn't have two different smells going on.
The deodorant certainly lasted the evening and when we got home that evening he still smelled as fresh as when we went out earlier.
I have found since that his shirts are keeping better under the arms too since wearing this to go out in instead of his normal deodorant. The normal one was making the underarms of his shirts go stiff and a pale colour but since wearing this deodorant his new shirts that have not been sprayed by the old deodorant are still looking as new under the arms.
He has had this bottle of deodorant for over a month now and he is still only half way down the bottle. It is an excellent spray for special occasions, though might work out a bit expensive to wear every day. I would recommend it if you like the smell of Joop Homme, it is well worth trying out.
