I’m largely recovered from my parosmia now, which is a huge relief. However, one of the few “joys” of a life-changing smell disorder was that not only couldn’t I smell myself, I couldn’t smell anyone else either, which made travelling on the tube during hot weather a more pleasant place for me than it did for … “normal” smellers! Ironically, even though I’m almost entirely recovered, I still can’t smell mysel. Or you. Or that git on the tube who apparently hasn’t washed his pits for the last three months.
Anyhoo, I’ve written about Triple Dry before, and I’m still a big fan, but I just noticed the roll-on version a couple of weeks ago, and I think I actually prefer it to the stick version that I reviewed previously. The stick version is unscented, which was a huge requirement for me at the time, but the Fresh version is nice for just giving a gentle hint of “nice smell” to my pits (which I can actually detect, so know I’ve applied, if/when I do a smell-check) but still has the great protection benefits. Essentially, you could (potentially) apply this just every three days, after a week of night-time applications and it would still keep you both dry and fresh even without daily applications! I still use mine daily, but I don’t worry so much now if I realise I’ve forgotten a day when I get to the office now.
For someone with parosmia-paranoia, Triple Dry is a lifesaver. Even for someone who can smell normally it’s still a damn good antiperspirant – my pits have stayed dry and fresh even in the current stupidly hot-spell, and for that, I am hugely grateful. And might you be if you came across me on the tube recently …
At £6.45 for 50mls at Boots, I’m not going to deny that it’s on the pricey side for a deodorant/anti perspirant product, but for the security and peace of mind it gives, it’s worth every single penny.
