Buying deodorant in Europe

Is it possible to purchase deodorant in Europe? I've been told it's not available in any country except England.

That's right! No-one in Europe uses any form of personal hygiene products at all, except us ultra-clean Brits! Are you for real????!!

Aye, thats correct - theres no toothpaste to be found either so I suggest you find a lump of coal on the road side & rub your teeth with that...

Hi

You may be lucky.

A couple of countries have started experimenting with piped water to houses. I still believe it won't replace the donkey pulled water cart we so often see.

And electricity is spreading rapidly towards Paris.

You could ask the pup to take some deodorant when he walks from London to Paris.

Even though this is an obvious troll, here's a serious answer: deodorant is widely available. Buying an ANTI-PERSPIRANT (anti-transpirant in French) is another thing. When we first moved to Brussels, I couldn't find anti-perspirant in any of the places that sold deodorants. I finally went to a pharmacy to ask for it. I got a long lecture on how the chemicals in anti-perspirants are not good for you and that they shouldn't be worn every day. If I really wanted one, she would see me a cream anti-perspirant in a tube that I would apply every day for a week, then every other day for two weeks, and then stop using.
However, things seemed to have changed. There are a few brands of anti-perspirant now for sale in the various grocery stores and "drogueries" (which don't sell drugs). But the selection is nothing like the U.S. or U.K. One brand of anti-perspirant also is running some clever ads on Dutch and Belgian TV.

I actually dfound the opposite problem; I couldn't find a decent deoderant in USA. I use the Lynx/Axe stuff and have great difficulty in finding a substitute.

Tony, we sell that brand under "Lysol Deodorizing Spray". You'll be amazed by the results.

It's a joke, dollface. The product is for disinfecting countertops and toilets.

This Lizzie Borden Axe stuff, what are the ingredients? It might contain something that's not allowed by our Food and Drug Administration, or maybe found only in certain brands.

the Pup just baths regularly and uses a little something scented in his bath water.

The pup could carry a supply of deodorant in his backpack for those that need it.

If the pup is arriving in Paris in the summer, he will need to carry an awfully large backpack, containing an awfully large supply of deodorant for an awfully large number of people!
