The Best Deodorants For Men Who Want To Smell Good

Five sticks, rolls and sprays that are simply pit perfect

At BEAST. we believe finding the right deodorant or antiperspirant is a lot like finding the perfect romantic partner (hear us out.) There's a lot of different options out there, and you might've had some bad luck in the past, but when you find the right one, you just know. Unlike that special someone, though, you needn't be a one deodorant kind of man. In fact, it's advised that you switch up your stick every six months to avoid your body becoming immune to the ingredients. Ready to move on? We've pulled together five of the very best to suit all bodies and all budgets.


SA.AL & CO Deodorant

Despite being the first thing you put on in the morning, a deodorant is often the last thing that gets attention when it comes to your dopp kit. SA.AL & CO is enough to change that. Housed in the brand's sleek metallic packaging is a host of heavyweight ingredients including anti-bacterial witch hazel, anti-inflammatory sage and anti-fungal lavender. Combined, they're enough to keep you odour-free even during the most gruelling workout. 


Recipe For Men Alcohol Free Antiperspirant Deodorant

Sweat happens. However, if you're dripping all day long, you may want to bring out the big guns. While deodorants do well to mask the funk (caused when sweat mixes with bacteria on the skin), antiperspirants block the waterworks altogether. Recipe For Men's roll-on offers 24-hour protection against swampy pits without any of the skin-irritating nasties. So go ahead and wear all the tight grey T-shirts you want.


BEAST. recommends: Antiperspirants adhere best to dry skin, so if you're applying straight out of the shower, make sure you mop away any excess moisture first.


Baxter of California Deodorant Stick

Most of us have far too much month at the end of our money, so it makes sense to look for ways to make things go that bit further. Cleverly, your deodorant can be used to intensify the scent of your fragrance by choosing a formula that contains similar notes. In the case of this slick stick from Baxter of California, that's hits of citrus and herbal musks, which will pair well with pretty much all the classics.


Bad Norwegian Roll Deo

It'd be easy to write off natural deodorants as wimpy plant-based potions if it weren't for products like Bad Norwegian's Roll Deo. Alcohol and aluminium-free, it's ideal for sensitive skin, leaning on the anti-bacterial properties of menthol to give it as much staying power as its chemically counterparts. Keep this one in your desk drawer for an instant refresh before heading to post-work drinks. 


Recipe For Men Alcohol Free Deodorant Stick

It's hard to realise you're using a sub-standard deodorant until you try Recipe For Men's Alcohol Free Deodorant Stick. Spiked with shea butter and notes of crispy bergamot, the fast-drying formula sounds almost good enough to eat (please don't do that). The real sell, though, other than the unparalleled wetness protection, is the fact that it's been specially created not to leave yellow stains on your favourite Oxford shirt.
