Many of us can relate to having walked past a guy, just minding our own business, when a waft of heavy secondhand cologne fumes send a shock to our system. Woof!
Likely he just wants to wow someone with his whiff. It could be that media and hygiene advertising has influenced him to think he needs this kind of smoke signal. And plenty of men’s deodorants out there produce quite the overwhelming fragrance.
And then there’s the other camp. Guys that seem to not notice (or even take pride in) their natural musk. They might have taken a lesson from Biology 101 and let their pheromones run a little too free.
But what if he simply assumed, like many others, that a deodorant would actually do what it said it would and eliminate odor?
You may find yourself relating to either of these scenarios on some level, and that’s nothing to be embarrassed about. These examples point to a larger problem men face today. They just aren’t getting what they need with deodorants on the market. That’s where Lume comes in.
Troy noticed something was different when he first tried Lume:
“After one use of Lume, I literally grabbed the sticks of deodorant I had in my bathroom, and into the garbage they all went. This product is amazing. Even t-shirts that I've worn, laying in my hamper days after, waiting to be washed, still had no funk...smelled fresh actually. But the most surprising part of this experience, was going an entire day of activity, to include the gym, and still, no funk...just unbelievable.”
Finally! Lume uses science to eliminate odor and let you be yourself, whatever that means to you. Here are just a few ways Lume’s pioneering science can make all the difference for your lifestyle.
If you're after more subtlety in a deodorant, all of Lume’s products are designed to not mask odor with a cologne overdose. Our scented products like Lavender Sage, Juniper Berry, Silver Spruce, and Jasmine Rose (which men are liking, too!) tastefully pair with your favorite colognes—a lot like flannels with lumberjacks. And if you’re going the minimalist route, our Unscented propel sticks and tubes do the trick nicely.
Apply as much or as little Lume as needed for your desired effect. For maximum effectiveness, we recommend applying right after you’ve showered and dried thoroughly and doing that for at least the first couple of days. You can also apply in between showers, or apply as little as you want to let more of your own zest come through if that's your thing.
We do our job as a Destroyer of Odor so you can spend more energy expressing your ideal scent.
Let’s lay it on the line here. The truth is that men’s deodorant products contain the same ingredients as women’s, and the only difference is in the packaging. Marketing makes all the difference.
Lume works for anyone—men, women, and kids alike—and we’re not afraid to show it. Lume also proved exceptional as an underarm deodorant, but was originally designed by a doctor for use around private parts. The beauty of its multi-use nature is that you can also use it anywhere you notice odor externally, whether it’s by the bulge, balls, in skin folds, belly buttons, or even on your feet. And a little bit goes a long way.
We only package all of this in one product. Why? Because we want to keep it honest and straightforward.
