Rated 4 out of 5 by BlueStinger good smell
As described, this is exclusively a deodorant. If you need antiperspirant, this will not do it. You will sweat through it in no time. The scent is a pleasant combo of clean and woodsy, a good winter scent and is not so fragrant that you smell it on yourself all the time. The texture is not too slimy nor too waxy and it applies liberally if you're not careful. It takes too long to dry. If you need to be dressed seconds or even minutes after application, you're going to leave residue in your shirt. It lasts all day (8-12hrs) if you're not active, but any sweaty activity will deplete its usefulness.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Spoonbilly Not quite strong enough
Doesn't work as well as products rated similarly on the Environmental Working Group's web site. If I have even a little sweat during the day, I'll develop a bit of body odor with this product. I did not have that problem with a similarly rated product I previously used. EWG rates this 3. I was previously using a 4, according to EWG scale of toxicity, with 1 the best and 9 the worst. When I've finished this product, I'll resume my search for a more effective product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by johnw Good ingredients, good smell
I was using "mineral" deodorant but learned the product, made by Cystal Essence, contains "alum", which is an aluminum compound. I switched to this product and am satisfied the ingredients won't make my life harder. Smell ain't bad either, and keep in mind, in summer, wearing a T-shirt, yer gonna smell like this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Optimized2 Impressed. Different & it works!
I'm on my first roll-on purchase. I'm older, haven't liked roll-ons, and am impressed with this. I've only used it in winter time, but I have underarm wetness / odor even then, esp. if wearing flannel shirts indoors at times.
It is 'natural' & smells masculine in a subtle way, with no flowery or chemical smell.
I used a major brand spray-on for decades. I had skin tags under arms, a LOT, removed by my dermatologist a few years ago, and suspected the major brand RG with aluminum in the spray. I can't prove it, but maybe it is documented already on the internet for all I know.
Well I got more skin tags, so I said 'this is ridiculous'.
I checked Swanson, having no idea what I was looking for. I only knew I wanted a more natural spray or .....? Well I found this roll-on and was hesitant. I don't like roll-ons. They tend to be waxy, messy, melt under arm, kinda greasy.
But there was one review here already, and I had just switched from Jason body wash to Every Man Jack's Cedarwood body wash and I liked it a lot, so decided to take a chance on this roll-on.
The applicator is sturdy, it works, and very little of the bar -- not a 'ball' applicator - is needed to feel like I have painted my skin sufficiently. I've used this for weeks now, and have months and months left to use up! It is cost effective to be sure.
The best testimony I can give is I don't have body odor, and I forget I'm even using a roll-on. It works at least as well as the aluminum spray on from the Big Brand. And again it has a mild masculine woody scent.
OH and this roll-on doesn't transfer to clothes, screw up the clothing with stains or gunk.
I like to write reviews, but I logged in just to give a big thumbs up to this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kfoss Have been using for a month
The smell is great, which both my wife and I enjoy. The protection is great, in fact when using during these summer months I have not experienced any sweating wetness under the arm. I also have a nineteen year old who has started using the product and is liking it, wow!
