I considered giving this product 5 stars because it does work just as well as the lavender antiperspirant, but the smell bothers me a little. It's not noticeable after applying, so it's not really a drawback, but it's kind of too floral. It reminds me of ear medicine, scent-wise. It does work extremely well though so if you like the smell of roses, you'll love this. But I would recommend trying other scents.
