Hmm, I can't speak for others.

I myself always use a decent anti-perspirant deodorant. No reason no too, they're cheap enough.

Why generalize? I think only men with hygiene problems should be derided. I don't need deodourant because God had bless me with odourless body. And I know many men don't stink as the poster tried to portrait. If you treat your body well, bath regularly, and eat the right food etc, you won't have to carry deodorant everywhere.

To me, men who had habit of using deodorant (not perfume) have serious hygiene problem. I once shared room with this cassanova guy who invested fortune on deodourants. He smells nice in the day but his body odour kept us awake at nights. I can't stand it! I think women who reason as the poster did stinks the more hence they can't imagine a man may be odourless.

Frankly, too much deodourant application by men should be suspect. Like my roomate mentioned earlier, hes was a medical problem. I left his house because of the odour but ladies love him and kept coming.

That is women for you.

I accept your challenge! I just hope Ms Olanajim would come on air to reveal the intensity of my body odour. For your information, I hardly use body cream talkless of deodorant. I bought a cream last year and had recently just buy another. Yesterday to be precise! Though I am going to use this one regularly.

You see odours don't come naturally, unless you have skin problem. Being odourless doesn't mean being completely free of odour. The nature of skin make it imperative to have contact with bacteria and microbes. Under wet and dirty conditions, the microbes thrive, interact with the moisture and salt coming out of the skin pores. In a normal case, you can only have the odour as long as the skin remains in that condition. When you do strenuous exercise etc the condition are present. A normal human therefore must learn basic hygiene to ensure healthy skin. A normal dry skin is not supposed to be stinking as to warrant hourly application of deodorants.

But when you have someone smearing his body with expensive cream, and still have to apply deodorant every hour plus the perfume he sprays on his stinking body when going to meet his babe ; to top it up with Tomtom or mint or shewing gun to keep his rotten mouth fresh each time he smiles, then, I assure you with my restless mouth, that we have a mobile human epidemic on the prowl. Unfortunately, most women are easily deceived by sweet smelling deodourants on a man to detect a carcass in human form!

PMSLMFAO!! grin grin grin

Ola, you're really funny! grin True, the combination of deodorant, and the stench of body odour isn't good! shocked

On a serious note though, in hot, humid climates, it's not just sufficient to use a deodorant - it has to be an anti-perspirant too, to cut down perspiration, which is what can give rise to body odour, especially if sweat dries on the skin, and you start perspiring again.

Layer upon layer of sweat will smell.

My dear Siena--I fear oh.  This dude is a charmer.  This is the type that will wear one underwear for one week--say his bottom is "odorless"!   Bull crap!!!  This is the main reason we have a thread like this.  Some guys have never heard of "cologne" "afterhave"--"deodorant" or "EDTs" Or "EDPs".  Walking around stinking up the place with brownish colored perspiration maps under their shirts.  May God not let us encounter such.  Amennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!!!

@Olanajim

And you live in Nigeria too?  A humid place where body odor is very common with males.  Just try entering an office even with an AC unit or entering a car with a dude who has been up and about for only 4 hours. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Killer scent mennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.  You will need a gas mask so you do not pass out. grin  Smelly "hormonal" dudes!

Just make the mistake of hugging one of those not to talk of getting in bed with one of those.  People will ask you for months if you own a goat/sheep farm. cheesy
Re: Why Are Guys/men Not Use To Using Deodorant by olanajim(m): 12:07pm On Nov 04, 2007
Yeah, I agreed o! There are really people like that. But not everyone. However, can you say because you are hungry and want to satisfy your hunger, you would be eating your own poo? Yet some guys actually do that.

Lest I forget, the poster asked why some guys don't use deodorant. So the intention is clear.

Being in humid environment is not an excuse to stink and waste money on deodorants when the real problem is hygiene. At times it could be medical.

@iice,
you don't use deodorants? But I can smell you! Please get some of the options listed by Almon. They are fantastic.

As for me, I would get one when I want to visit my in-laws. I don't want to leave pongent odour behind. I want them to feel my perfume even after I have gone. That way, I would leave lasting impression on their noses.

Ola shocked shocked Can you smell the mist? grin tongue
I nor need advice. . .stone cold no get smell tongue grin
Re: Why Are Guys/men Not Use To Using Deodorant by olanajim(m): 12:26pm On Nov 04, 2007
Exactly. All I have to do is put my nose in the freezer, that way, I smells you! It would be a waste of money for you to add deodorant. It would freeze as ice.

@Olanajim
u dont need to have body odour to use a deodorant.so dont tink u're MR CLEAN.u cant tell me everyone dat uses deodorant are dirty.
using deodorant is a way of preventing odour mostly in hot countries.so if u fink u're too clean to use it then u're deceiving urself.
now i know why i made dis thread, i fink its because of pple like u .



@tobaaro
asking y men do not use deodorant doesnt mean i've mingled wit such i only find it common among men.
it takes sumone dat has a good cent to know d ones wit body odour.if u've not been noticing meaning urs isn't good enough to correct.
they tink its fashion so it shuld be left 4 d ladies.
Re: Why Are Guys/men Not Use To Using Deodorant by mellow(m): 2:30pm On Nov 04, 2007
Body odour can be as a result of the parents of that person not giving the child a thorough

bath as an infant. It could also be as a result of Medical imbalance and again poor hygiene.

Again no one is particularly odourless as you are aware that your dog recognizes you with

your smell and this has nothing to with you been a Mr clean it all.Everyone has his or her distinct

body smell and this is the one nature has giving you and no deodorant can get rid of it for you, it is just

always there. I use deodorants, perfume and others not because I smell but that it does look good to smell good,

You can call it BOOSTER for my CONFIDENCE.

Re: Why Are Guys/men Not Use To Using Deodorant by olanajim(m): 3:07pm On Nov 04, 2007
Akaye,
points taken.

I am not Mr Clean o! I smell like rotten eggs.

My point is clear, many people that use deodorant in excess are smelling like shits. Why not do your research well. But those who don't have odour would not commit suicide just because they ran out of stock. Or because they don't use one. I know what I saying.

For your information, I think there is a minor difference btweem deodorants and perfumes. I don't know if I am right but I personally make distinction base on their original purpose.

Finally, I insist when people have to rely heavily on deodorants then something is wrong beneath.
