There is a reason why men send flowers. Women are attracted to fragrant smells. How many men do you see shopping for air fresheners, perfumes, potpourri baskets and scented candles? Zilch. It is the female of the species that look for the sweet smells. Very rare will you encounter a girl who wouldn’t mind a good musky man-sweat odor emanating from a sasquatch of a man. Less rare will you find a girl that is aroused by BO. If you want to get a date, you’d better smell good.
What makes men stink? There are several factors, but sweat is usually either the main culprit or the carrier. A lot of men lead very active lifestyles, either he wants to be the epitome of hard work, thus working harder and breaking sweat harder, or he wants to be He-Man, trying on a wide variety of sports.
Well, you need just one to break out a sweat.
An antiperspirant is different from a deodorant. Deodorants will mask unwanted smell, but antiperspirants will eliminate the cause of BO, which is sweat. If you have a medical condition, we suggest you buy a good antiperspirant rather than a deodorant. A lot of these deodorants are paired with antiperspirants, yet still, some very strong antiperspirants will need a separate deodorant to provide you a sweeter smell.

10. Degree Dry Cool Comfort Antiperspirant Deodorant
Degree Dry Cool Comfort has a mild scent reminiscent of Old Spice High Endurance. Not something to wow your woman, except if she’s pretty much turned on by traditional scents. It has that light citrus aroma that makes you feel like you’ve just scrubbed with a lemon in the shower.
9. Dove Men+Care Extra Fresh Antiperspirant Deodorant
Your dermatologist will approve of this choice. Dove brings moisturizing technology with its products, and this antiperspirant is no exception. Skin care has always been the priority of Dove, so you know using this antiperspirant will be safe for you. The gentle but masculine smell is natural and not that strong. It won’t stop you from sweating too much but you definitely feel cleaner on it.
8. Certain Dri Antiperspirant
This is the time to admit if you are one of those people who cannot stop sweating. The slightest change in temperature, episodes of anxiety, or stress will trigger a waterfall of sweat for you, and you are in danger of BO. Certain Dri however is strictly an antiperspirant, with no deodorizing agents. As mentioned above, though, you can stop the sweating, which causes BO, but there are other factors that may contribute to bad smell. Use a separate deodorant, just for the purpose of adding a scent that’s pleasant.
If you’re a guy that sweats a lot, this (and our #2 Sweat Block) are great choices.
7. Degree Dry Adventure Antiperspirant Deodorant Spray
Degree is in this list the same reason that Dove is here. They are popular. But that’s only one reason. Degree Dry does not have any alcohol or water content so it dries up instantly avoiding moisture to cause additional problems on your BO issue. This will delay sweat for as much as 42 hours. A letdown is the scent; which dies down pretty quickly as soon as you apply it. The spray cap has an twist-to-close feature, making this antiperspirant pretty travel friendly.
6. Axe White Label Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant
Different from the rest of the Axe-line of deodorants in the market, there is a certan maturity on this product. Just like Degree, it has a dry formula that is absent of water or alcohol, providing you that cool dry feeling that lasts up to 48 hours. As mentioned, Axe White is the mature version of its siblings, bringing you a cedarwood scent that is neither too weak nor too strong, and very natural.
5. Recipe for Men Antiperspirant Deodorant
You will be amused to learn that Recipe’s formulation was inspired by men living in the Swedish mountains. That sasquatch scent that emanates from someone living in the woods is simply not something you’d want to bring to the city. Instead of drying your skin up and prevent you from sweating, however, it is formulated to absorb sweat before it leads to BO. This protects you effectively from dry skin.
4. Gillette Clinical Strength Antiperspirant Deodorant
Gillette and clinical strength are 2 words you will like put together. It gives you that trusted performance of Gillette products, along with the promise that it works for men with a medical condition. Because it is clinical strength, however Gillette makes an attempt to make it smell good, it simply will be too much for sensitive skin types to bear. If you don’t mind that, then this is a good deal for you.
3. Jack Black Pit Boss Antiperspirant Deodorant
No, this is not the voice of Kung Fu Panda. Although it promises to blind people with your awesomeness, should you choose it. Jack Black has been around for a while, providing high end skincare products for men. It’s called a Pit Boss, as you will exude the calm and collectiveness a Casino Pit Boss will carry in the pit. You will have all day protection from sweat and body odor, without irritation.
Compare the scent with the #1 on this list, Molton Brown, and you have 2 of the classiest smelling scents ever.
2. SweatBlock Clinical Strength Antiperspirant
SweatBlock is unbelievably the best antiperspirant there is in the market when it comes to stopping you from sweating. One application lasts for 7 days. If it doesn’t stand up to its claim, SweatBlock had given us a 30 day money back guarantee. If you have a definite medical condition, your doctor will recommend this to you.
1. Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper Antiperspirant Deodorant
The award for our best antiperspirant for men goes to the Molton Brown Re-Charge Black Pepper Stick. It sits on its pedestal for the following reasons: The mixture of black peppercorns, bergamot and oak moss gives off a scent unlike no other. It isn’t overpowering, yet you get a feeling of masculinity smelling it. It is very dry, and non-irritating.
Choose your antiperspirant based on both the staying power of the formula, but although it is true 7 day protection seems to rival no other, you still need to shower everyday. Again, sweat is only one of the factors why you get BO. If you don’t need a 7 day long protection window, then by all means, choose one of the products with better scents.
Until then, enjoy!
