Adidas Ice Dive Anti-Perspirant
Availability: retail stores
A 24-hour fragrance booster developed with athletes.
What we say:
‘I initially read “Ice Diva” when I scooped up this product, but this is definitely a men’s roll-on with the classic, crisp, über fresh shower smell one would associate with the cool turquoise cap. A small bottle in short compact packaging that you can wrap your fist around makes it the perfect for throwing in a travel or gym bag. I last went to gym three years ago so the “developed with athletes” tag line on the bottle is probably a bit over kill. Anyway, I thought athletes were supposed to sweat!
‘It did, however, keep me sweat-free during a nerve-wracking business trip to Johannesburg full of presentations and client meetings. Working up a sweat on the treadmill is fine – stinking out a boardroom with sweaty pits is not!
‘And the 24 hour promise? Yup, I stuck it out without a shower – nervously nosed my pits at the end of the day and found no BO, rather still that cool, fresh, non-intrusive shower smell. This being said, I am not a big pit-sweater and therefore might give candle wax a good review, so I gave my partner the product and set a long task list for the day. The results? Sweat! However, we have not yet found any anti-perspirant that actually prevents sweat.
‘And yay for me I have a clean and nice smelling house to boot!’
