Like many others, $22 for a deodorant was absurd being that there are many on the market for way less. My problem was that I had to repurchase often and would not really work. I purchased the Donna Karan deodorant on a whim and fell in love with it. It works, the scent is not too strong and it lasts without the white residue.
This deodorant is fantastic. I have a job in which I have moments of very high stress, and it keeps me bone dry. The scent is very sexy, but not in a hyper-feminine way. I am getting very positive reviews from my gentleman, even after a long day of work.
Love it. Easy packaging to keep in your bag for on the go purposes. Was using Secret Clinical Protection before this but I was running out of it every month and it never seemed to feel like it was working. This DO on the other hand has such a nice scent that it never lets you forget it is there protecting you. Could be overbearing for some, but for me it's rather nice. $15 dollars for DO isn't cheap but it seems like this could last much longer than my Secret. Happy Camper.
I love this deodorant's scent, but it lacks a little in the performance department. I expected it to be a little stronger, especially because I am using it in the summer in the heat and humidity. I love the packaging, which is very sturdy, and the portability of it for travel or on-the-go bags. I think this deodorant is more appropriate for the fall/winter, when it is cooler.
Heard very good things about this deodorant for years, finally decided to give it a try.
*Gives a silky clean and dry **feeling** to armpits for roughly 24 hours from application.
*Product doesn't ball/pill up in the underarms throughout the day.
*Applies very thin and little product is required, feels light and weightless and breathable, not cakey/thick or heavy or suffocating.
*Does a very good job at odor/sweat prevention throughout the day IF applied to freshly washed clean and dry skin.
*I personally haven't experienced any product transfer to dark clothing.
*The scent seems unisex to me, it's not distinctly feminine or masculine, men could probably wear this. It doesn't smell to me like a clean or fresh scent (i.e. soap, flowers, etc), it's more like a musky cedar wood plus baby powder kind of smell; it doesn't smell dirty or like BO or anything, it's a pleasant scent, but it's not what I would call a "clean" or "fresh" scent. But to me it's not overbearing or perfumey or cologny. I do wish it was a bit more feminine and clean/fresh smelling, tho because the scent kind of reminds me of what I imagine an attic in a rustic home to smell like.
*Does not work well for me at all in either masking or neutralizing existing BO. If I recently showered and apply it soon afterwards I'm good and protected for the whole day and even into part of the next day; but whenever I've skipped showering the next day and then touch up with this deodorant once I'm starting to smell a little questionable, it doesn't work well at neutralizing existing odor or masking it, and to be honest it seems to make any present odor a lot worse and a lot more offensive to me. This is something I'm not used to because my previous deodorants had the ability to, well, de-odor, lol.
*Kinda expensive for the amount of product.
I would purchase this again and do recommend it.
This is hands down the best deodorant that I have ever used. The only reason that I clicked 'No' for repurchase is because it's almost $30CAD, and Degree Clinical Strength works great as well, for $5.
Anyway, I'd describe the scent of this as "sophisticated baby powder" (if you can imagine that). According to Donna Karan's website, ithas notes of bergamot, jasmine, lily of the valley, suede, cashmere accord, sandalwood, amber, musk, and vanilla. Quite complex for a deodorant/anti-perspirant! The ending result is a delicious smell that is somehow sexy, yet fresh and not overbearing at the same time. I often skip perfume when I wear this.
And this product keeps me dry like no other! I sweat A LOT and this is the only thing that's kept me dry from dawn till dusk. I didn't think such a "pretty" product would offer such heavy duty performance, but boy was I surprised!
Bottom line? If you have $20 to spend on deodorant, I HIGHLY suggest this.
I have been looking for the perfect deodorant for ages! I have tried everything out there. All of it and I always felt smelly so I always felt that I had to keep reapplying. I saw this while standing in line at Sephora. It was the small size $10 bucks so I bought it. I LOVED IT! It smells great, just fine. Like baby powder kind of but more elegant. It keeps me dry and I finally for the first time ever dont feel like I need to carry deodorant with me everywhere I go. I apply when I get out of the shower and that's it! And it feels smooth. The big size is $20 at Macy's. But I love it so much I am ok with that! Never thought id be spending 20 bucks for deodorant.
I usually use drugstore deodorants, but having never been satisfied with them and reading good reviews about this I thought I would try.I was really surprised that a "perfume deodorant" could be this good! There's no bad odor and I'm staying dry during the day, nor has my sensitive skin reacted to this.
I like the smell Cashmere Mist, but that is the one thing that I think might keep people away from this, the smell is quite strong.
The price is quite high compared to other deodorants, but if if this one works flawless is worth it for me!
I like the packaging.....that's about it. In order to like this product you need to love the smell of DK Cashmere Mist, because that is all you will smell the rest of the day. This scent overides my perfume, body lotion and my aveda hair products. A woman in yoga class was noticably wearing this, and it made me a little sick. It was the heat the B.O. and cashmere mist all mixed up doing it's thing, and it was gross. But I like the package, it looks like something special.
I admit I do not perspire a lot, but there are times when my deo has 'failed'. I decided to spring for this, but now I don't consider it a luxury item. I have never felt so dry for so long. After a gym session - bone dry. The little scent is there but not overpowering. It's really barely noticeable. I would recommend this to anyone who has heavy perspiration.
I will prob. buy a 2nd one for my travel kit. Worth every cent, ladies.
