Are you prone to perspiration? Do you prefer perfume? Don't sweat it either way, our research is right on the nose.
Perfumes can add the little bit of spice that makes you smell extra nice, while deodorants can pull double duty by sprucing up your scent while stopping those dreaded pit-stains. For most people these odour eliminators are part of the morning routine, so of course you want to know if they're the real deal or a smelly sheist.
Our experts are practically drowning in perfumes, deodorants and antiperspirants, looking for nasty white residue and sensual smells, while keeping an eye out for counterfeits that make their way onto our shelves. Sometimes they encounter a pong that's just plain wrong, but it's all in the name of protecting you from the scents that are utterly "pee-yew".
