Let's face it. Nobody likes a stink. Gone are the days of that "manly odor," causing women to trip over their feet as your male scent draws them in – it was all a lie.
While perfumery goes back thousands of years, it was only in 1709 when an Italian living in Cologne decided that men deserved to smell good too.
While today's man no longer has to hunt wild animals to survive, that's no excuse to ignore the body's unsavory smell after a long day out and about.
HUMANS NATURALLY STINK
Human beings stink. There's nothing wrong with it, but unfortunately, millions of years of evolution still haven't found a way to overcome the by-product of sweaty armpits. Yes, you can shower all you want, but come that midday lunchbreak, the accumulated whiff of your morning at work will inevitably find its way into the nostrils of some poor, unsuspecting colleague.
While our childhoods are thankfully and mostly B/O free, once those hormones go to work, and adolescence comes knocking, our changing bodies throw up a couple of surprises which require attention – most notably how we smell. This natural fragrance results from those little sweat glands, working furiously to cool you off as you go about leaving your mark on this world, providing a veritable feast for underarm bacteria to enjoy. Unable to get the fresh air that your pits need while covered for eight hours a day by great-looking, but ultimately smothering work shirts, the accumulation of sweat, bacteria, and heat leads inevitably to, well… a stink.
DEODORANT'S CAN BE BAD FOR YOU
Since the advent of the aerosol deodorant, millions of scented sprays have found their way onto the market, offering relief to men (and women) around the world in staving off that hard-to-miss aroma. While many of these perfumed fragrances can smell rather pleasant, others are positively disgusting, assaulting the nasal passages and often leaving you smelling worse off than if you were to brave your natural odor throughout the day. The very nature of an aerosolized deodorant also means that it doesn't last very long, fading away in a matter of hours.
Sweat is the mark of hard work. If you haven't broken one yet, you're being lazy. Unfortunately, the end result of a sweaty, hard day at work, means that you're bound to generate a decent amount of the stuff. This natural coolant tends to build up, leaving embarrassing stains beneath your arms and ruining even the hardiest of shirts. Antiperspirants arrived on the scene as a solution to this problem. Focusing on blocking sweat altogether in avoiding odors, this once-touted miracle of science simply blocks your sweat glands, keeping you dry. But here's the catch: Antiperspirants use aluminum salts to prevent your glands from creating underarm sweat.
No sweat, no bacteria, no stench. Sounds great, right? Wrong. The body needs to sweat and using a metal-based compound to block your glands isn't exactly the healthy alternative we all need in the pursuit of smelling like a rose. From itchy, inflamed pits, to a risk of Alzheimer's, best avoid aluminum-based deodorants altogether.
