My Opinion:
I don't usually review deodorants, but I really had to rant about this product. Just before I start I need to clarify that I don't usually have strong body odour, and nobody has ever told me that I smell, so you could imagine how humiliated I was when I found out the source of the smelly scent was actually coming from me.
I've put on the deodorant early in the morning and sprayed on some perfume before I went to work, at around mid day I've started to notice something smelly, and I was virtually sniffing inside my office trying to figure out what was the scent, and it has actually cross my mind that there might be a dead mousse somewhere, until I lifted up my arms and realize that the strong disgusting smell was actually coming from me.
On itself this product wasn't strongly scented, a light fresh marine scent, but somehow with my body chemistry it has turned into something gross, I've never smelled this bad, I had to run to the bathroom and wipe it off and I've sprayed nearly 1/3 of a bottle of my perfume to get rid of the scent.
This went straight to the bin.
