Note to the deodorant industry: You have gone insane.
Since the last time I bought deodorant, apparently, things have gotten a little crazy. On the crazy scale, we’re talking the same level as when someone comes in and pitches "Alf" or "The A-Team" and everyone says, "Brilliant! Let’s do it!"* It’s difficult for me to believe that there’s been a precipitous drop in deodorant sales, economic downturn aside. So I simply cannot understand what would possess a company like, oh, Secret to launch a line with scents like Vanilla Chai, Jasmine Orient, Asian Pear, Arctic Apple, Brazilian Cherry, etc. (And, oh yes, there are more.) And might I add that the company has created "exotic" COMPUTER WALLPAPER for each scent?
If you want your armpits to smell like a vanilla chai latte, please slam your head into the mirror in your bathroom until you Stop Wanting That.
My tried and true Soft & Dri conditioning silk hint of aloe (itself a bit crazy with the name) has been replaced with black and fuschia packaging that "pulses" on their site and makes me think of Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo.
*Except, of course, that without "The A-Team" our world would shine a little less brightly. Also, without the Breakin’ series. But jacked-up deodorant? We can live without.
