Stock Up on Whiskey Scented Wares

It’s obvious to anyone with a sense of smell when you’ve had an overindulgent night. The aroma of booze emanates from every pore in your body. Yeah, that vigorous rinse with mouthwash is going to have zero effect on the eau de hooch you’re currently wearing. So why would you actively try to scent your person and space with say, whiskey? Because these infused or inspired grooming offerings are a little more nuanced than just marinating in a bottle of Jack Daniels. But still use them responsibly (as in, maybe don’t use all of it at once).

Summertime can bring with it sweltering temperatures, and with it comes murky pits, odorous feet — or, worst of all, swamp crotch. Even if it's the middle of the winter, those can be issues for men who workout on a consistent basis or simply sweat more than the average guy. The bacteria and fungus that accumulate in your sweat-ridden crevices can yield an unpleasant odor that leaves you feeling unclean and even more so, uncomfortable. Of course, you can wick a bar of deodorant under your arms and be good to go, but what can you do about the other sweaty (and more delicate) parts of your body?

Enter body powder, also known as talcum powder (although several formulas on the market now are talc-free). Body powder absorbs moisture, reduces odor, and eliminates chafing so you never have to worry about the pains of upper leg chafing.
