The deodorant comes in a lovely blue glass spray bottle and is available in three scents. I chose the scent-free one, but there are also fresh floral (rose-geranium, sweet orange, lavender and clary sage) and heavenly herbal (sage, lavender, lemon and clary sage) scents to choose from.
The scent-free one contains no essential oils or fragrance. It smells like alcohol when you first spray it, but the smell dissipates very quickly. As you might expect, the deodorant goes on pretty wet, so I recommend waiting a minute or two after you apply it, before getting dressed. Another thing to keep in mind is that there's nothing absorptive in the deodorant, so if you sweat, you may feel wet.
On me, I don't find the deodorant keeps smells at bay for more than a few hours, so I need to reapply several times throughout the day. I'm fine with that for days when I'm at home, but it isn't the most practical when I'm working or out running around all day. That said, I do think the efficacy of natural deodorants has a lot to do with how products interact with your individual body chemistry, so just because this doesn't last all day on me, doesn't mean it won't work better on someone else.
Going by this experience and my numerous other deodorant experiments over the last couple years, I think I can say with some confidence that deodorants with baking soda work best for me. But, I know many people react to baking soda in deodorants, so if that's you, Savon Du Bois' deodorant may end up being a good fit! It's gentle on your skin, and even though it contains alcohol, I didn't get any dryness or irritation from using it.
Cost-wise, it's also pretty affordable. The 80ml bottle (pictured above) sells for $13 and it does last quite a while. There are also 400ml refills available for $39.
