Nivea - Aqua Cool Deodorant Spray

Nivea - Aqua Cool Deodorant Spray

Gosh, even the deodorant sprays are better in Europe. Nivea makes a few types of Men's (Women's too) deodorants that are only available on the continent. Thanks to the magic of the internet and small-time importers, you can get them here without paying too much of a premium. The 'Aqua Cool' scent is refreshingly clean, with just the right amount of perfume without being overpowering. It's way better than any of the Axe stuff, though the scent is somewhat similar to (but better than) Axe's 'Phoenix' (I tried it ONCE, ok??) It comes in an unconventional, travel friendly 150 mL bottle. It also has all these cool German words on it, like 'Neu!' and 'Vitalisierende Frische, Pflegt mild'. I recommend it!

  • After much searching, I've come to the conclusion that Degree makes the best deodorants (at least in the USA) overall. Sure, there are standout here and there, but Degree is tops. Silver Ion is a new collection and it's pretty... After much searching, I've come to the conclusion that Degree makes the best deodorants (at least in the USA) overall. Sure, there are standout here and there, but Degree is tops. Silver Ion is a new collection and it's pretty cool. In addition to the regular anti-perspirant chemical, there's silver in there too. Silver kills bacteria and the smelly compounds they produce. The best part is the stick itself - it's clear, but not a gel. It's not a crumbling white stick either. It's like a cool hybrid gel-stick, which goes on clear and dries in seconds. No 'wet' feeling or stained clothes. It's slightly cooling on contact too. It's really perfect! I only tried the 'Arctic Edge' scent, which I like. It's similar to their 'Cool Rush' scent but a little sweeter. It's enough to make you smell nice without coming off like cologne. And it lasts a full 24 hours. I plan to check out the other scents, but for now, this is my day-to-day deo. (For those with minds like mine, Degree is produced by Unilever. Unilever owns lots of brands, including Axe. I think they take Axe and tone down the frat-boy marketing as well as the overpowering scents, and call that Degree. It even has the same shape with the full-bottom twist dispenser. So it's kinda similar to an axe scent's essence, but so, so much better and more refined. And yes, it is officially very, very sad that I thought so much, and written so far, about a stick of deodorant.)

  • This is probably one of my favourite scents from Axe. After my husband applies it I'm instantly drawn to him and in a very good way. I wouldn't say I react like the women in the commercials but there's definitely an "axe effect"... This is probably one of my favourite scents from Axe.

The scents aren't too overpowering, really work (yes, they're deodorizing sprays), and the scent pleasantly lingers longer than most colognes!
