Women's Deodorant

Why is women's deodorant a separate product? I don't know what exactly is in deodorant - but I'm pretty sure it's all the same active ingredient with some arbitrary fragrance. Those sneaky marketers at Proctor and Gamble have magically created an entirely new product segment by just adding a different scent and putting it in a baby blue case.

Why can't women use men's deodorant? Based on my vast experience, women smell super-awesome anyway - kind of like flowers and baby powder - so they really don't need anything special to smell good. Maybe my opinion is skewed because most of my vast experience took place inside of Spearmint Rhino - but still - if it's strong enough for a man, it's certainly strong enough for a woman. Unless you're Star Jones. Because then you'd require something much, much stronger. Probably some combination of elephant tranquilizer and Mr. Clean.

But what if the deodorant is what makes them smell like flowers and baby powder?

I think the real Star Jones has been replaced with an alien. How else do you explain that gargantuan cranium on the (relatively) tiny body? Or else, that's nature's way of telling her some people are meant to be fat.

What? Are you crazy?

Didn't you see the commercials?

Women's deodorant is pH balanced for a woman...

can you imagine what would happen if they used ours? Their armpits would sizzle and sear with acidic fire! Mon Dieu!

Alright boys, you figured us out. If we didn't wear the women's deodorant, we would just smell like... YOU. It's all a conspiracy. Now you know.

I'm not sure if I'd want my girl to smell like Old Spice...
