Very very good deodorant. The sharp, sweet citrus scent neutralizes odors perfectly.
It doesn't really stop transpiration, but then, I sweat through nearly every deodorant, even those with aluminium.
I do smell a whole lot better when using this though.
I love the fact that it's a stick (hate deodorant sprays and even roll-ons) and that the scent is unisex. Though it is a very potent scent, it doesn't clash with my perfumes (well, most of the time).
It glides quite easily over the skin and does not irritate it, even right after shaving.
It is rather expensive, but it is the first deodorant I have ever used that I am completely satisfied with. So it is worth every penny.

it's only the second day that i am using it so, perhaps, i will have to update. so far, though, i am really happy with the product- i absolutely love the smell, the texture- it dries very quickly and doesn't leave stains on your clothes- and the staying power is very decent for a deodorant. I sweat a lot but, also, try to avoid alluminium- not a perfect combination:-)
i was sweating quite a lot when wearing it and my clothes smelled of verbena, my skin smelled of me by the end of the day, though:-) i am giving it a few more days to see how happy i am with it, but i think that if i apply it twice a day, it will do the job perfectly.
UPDATE: it doesn't work for the whole day... to give it credit, the smell doesn't "contaminate" the clothes (phew) but i definitely wouldn't let anyone smell my armpit by the end of the day (let's put it that way:-) I still adore the texture and smell so don't allow myself to take a lippie off... not yet, at least

I am using this since the last week and so far, I am glad. I sweat very much nowadays, since it is still very hot in my country and this one is enough effective to protect me. It doesn't include aluminium, which is a plus.

Smells great but doesn't seem to be strong enough for me. I use this deodorant if I know I'm not going to be particularly active that day.

This is the best "natural" deodorant I've ever used.
And I've tried a lot!
It has a fresh lemon scent which I'd say is gender neutral.
It does not irritate my sensitive skin either. Even after shaving.
It is really expensive but you get what you pay for in this case.
Will definitely repurchase!!

I am in LOVE with this deodorant and finally way too glad to have found a completely all natural HG! Over the past couple eyars I've definitely gone on an organic skincare craze and have switched over to as many products as I can. However we all know finding a product that is organic and still effective take some testing. As far as deodorant I had completley given up as I hate all drugstore deodorants that are full of chemical, plus never stick to their dam claim on no white residue or marks left behind! lol I then went on a hunt trying about every line from whole food and health stores and even if the deorants smelled great/seemed potent they would wear off within hours. Mind you I'm pretty lucky and barely sweat even at the gym so made no sense to me that all natural wouldn't even hold up on dry skin adn who has time to reapply a million times a day. I also tried many higher end department counter roll on deodorants and sticks which weren't all all natural but less toxic than drugstore. I randomly ran across L'occitane never thinking abour their deodorant and tried the Purifying Roll On which has that minty fresh type appealing smell I like and thinking Eucalyptus in it would be strong but alas didn't really stand up to the odor protection and most annoyingly has a sticky feel plus stays wet and never dries. Honestly gave up at that point on natural deod lol until I ran across this whle accidently running across a L"occitane store at the Forum Shops when I had friends in town. The smell sold me to buy it asap as I cannot get enough of the sweet lemon type smells and this one is so potent which is why I think it truly prevents odor with so many amazing ingredients and oils. Even with the smell being so strong it doesn't interfere with perfume or anything but jsut makes you feel so fresh which is key in deodorant for me. On top of that love that it applies clear and never leaves marks on one single item of clothing even it you layer it a million times feels like you have nothing on (plus the great cooling sensation). Also even with all the citrus type oils etc it is super sensitive and doesn't ever burn or irritate even if used right after shaving. Bottom line it lasts all day from one application through sweating and everything. I can't rave enough as there are no cons to this, buy it and see for yourself! :)
