Rave for Aromaco!!!

Dude. Why did no one tell me that this works better than Fuwari??? I've been a huge fan of Lush's deos for a year now, but I just tried a sample of Aromaco and it's amazing! I didn't realize it wasn't powdery like Fuwari, it's so much easier to use as a solid, my fingers don't get all icky. And it seems to last longer. One question though: My sample falls apart every time I use it, like the chunk I'm using breaks in half. I'm assuming it's because the sample was a skinny slice, as opposed to a big fat chunk. Am I right, or do the big bars crumble too?

I have only used Oxeo cube (which I love!) Fuwari was next on my list, what does it smell like? I have used Aromaco once and I liked it but it was a sample as well so it crumbled. I don't mind patchouli but I don't want to smell like it all the time.

I like Fuwari except its more expensive and l've found it doesn't last more than 10 hrs for me (which is still more than other deos!) It smells floral, but not light like T'eo . It's a more heady floral I think.

I've got a fairly big chunk of aromaco, never had any crumbling problems with it, so it's probably just because you got a thin slice. It does work better than any other deo for me, it actually keeps me dry! Unfortunately, I hate patchouli, and it's so strong it's hard to hide the smell of it! I actually have people notice at work all the time, "are you wearing patchouli?" It's kinda embarrassing to be like "yeah, that's my armpits!" Now, if Lush made something that worked like aromaco but smelled good, then I'd be in heaven! I use T'eo when hubby takes me out, because I love the smell of it, so pretty and light.

That's so weird, my sample smells like nothing. l like patchouli though so it might be ok.

I bought a chunk of aromaco once and it didn't break apart when I used it. However, I only used it once before I gave it away. The scent was just not for me. I have always been interested in Fuwari or Oxeo- but I'm a little frightened off by the deos now.

I brought a big chunk of aromaco and mine never crumbled but i did find it went a bit dry, as it lasts ages, so i just moistened it under a tap before i put it on and it worked just fine. I've found it's the only one that keeps nasty pongs away all day for me.

I have never tried Aromaco... I have tried aromarant which I didn't like. Now I have a big tub of aromacreme. I like that better but it's not solid at all. It's kind of mush like herbalism. It works well though. I've been wanting to try the solid ones like T'eo or Oxeo.

I prefer Aromarant to Aromaco myself ;) but they are both fantastic deodorants, no doubt. I've never had a crumbling problem with either Aromaco or Aromarant so I'm guessing this was down to your sample size - the SA should know better than that and cut it into almost dice-like cubes. Thats how I managed to get an Aromarant sample to last me two months!
