Cashmere Mist Deodorant

I don't know what possessed me to spend about $40 CDN on a damn deodorant...but I made the splurge and kind of regret it because it's sitting on my vanity unused most days, because I never want to reach for it and usually grab my $3 Secret cocoa butter stick instead. Or if I think I'll be extra sweaty that day, I'll use men's deodorant. (Old Spice Wolfthorn smells fruity, and they have a new one called Wilderness that smells like lavender) Her I will list the reasons I don't much care for this super expensive Deo: 1. Ridiculously expensive 2. Dry as hell texture, almost makes me wonder if it's old or expired, but based on reading other reviews, it's just a dry formula. Unpleasant and because it drags on the skin I never feel like I'm adequately covered so I probably end up using too much, which is wasteful, and also increases the scent, which is strong 3. I don't care for the scent. Probably my own fault for not being familiar with the perfume and testing it out, but I thought Cashmere sounded yummy, and it's only a deodorant so how overpowering can it be? Very. I wear lighter perfumes, and when I'm wearing this Deo, I smell this much stronger than my perfume. Which is a bummer. Not my kind of scent, no offense to anyone who enjoys it, it's not horrible but it is strong and mature smelling, and by the end of my busy sweaty days I smell a bit like a man wearing cologne (or Old Spice deodorant in one of the "manly scents"). Maybe it just doesn't work with my body chemistry, who knows As a deodorant, it works and keeps me dry, so it's not a complete fail. But there are many other MUCH cheaper options that also work, and smell/feel better in my opinion

I don't remember how I first came to try this, but I love it. I really do look for wetness control, not just odor control, and this one delivers. (Also, it smells nice until I go to bed at night). I like the packaging, screw on top, but I've learned: don't be too aggressive in applying the product under your arms. If too much of it ends up on the sides of the tube, it's hard to screw on the top and there can be an accumulation in the lid. And that's just a waste of good product. Gently glide it over your skin; don't dig in. Of course this is a lot of money for a daily hygiene product. I was getting it as a Christmas present since my husband shops at Nordstrom. Now that I'm on my own, I hope I'll be able to afford the products I've become accustomed to!

Ahhh one of my first perfumes, reminds me of my pre-teen years. This is a very crisp, fresh perfume...perfect for spring/summer or young teens/pre-teens testing the waters of fragrance :) The green apple note is strong from first spray & it's NOT synthetic, along with the cucumber & citrus. You would think this combination is too sour BUT the perfumer has prevented that with the balance of the notes. Shortly after that you can smell the flower blend mixed along with the apple: a bit of tuberose, magnolia, lily-of-the-valley... The sandalwood, amber base is a nice touch but it lingers soft on the skin and isn't prominent...it lightly lingers on the skin after a while. It does last around 6 hours on the skin, which is expected from a 'fresh' perfume. Every fragrance I've tried in this category lasts around the same period. All in all, an absolutely scrumptious lightweight scent and perfect for people obsessed with apples (like me!)
