As my son moved into middle school and the tween years, he needed his first deodorant. Having no experience with more masculine scents, I wasn't sure what to buy him. I spoke with some other moms who have teen sons, and they agreed that Old Spice is a popular brand. Even though it's been around for years, their newer scents are updated and don't smell like my grandfather.
I let my son choose which scent he liked. He went for the Arctic Force fragrance. It's definitely a manly type of scent. that said, it's not too overpowering. The deodorant itself does seem to work. My son's close aren't as stinky after gym class or soccer practice and he feels much more comfortable with this deodorant on. The smell is fresh and does help to cover up any lasting odor.
Even though I'm no the one wearing the Old Spice, I do feel that it's a quality product. It helps to keep my son's underarm area dry and it does lessen the smell. it's also long-lasting, meaning that my son doesn't have to constantly keep reapplying it. He can swipe it on in the morning and not have to worry about it for the rest of the day.
