Is there a deodorant for other body parts?

Is there a deodorant for other body parts other than underarms? (Hopefully someone know what I'm talking about)
As far as I know almost all deodorants should be applied to underarms only.

Have you talked to a doctor to make sure there's not a medical reason why some other parts of your body smell bad?

Can you elaborate? Which body part? The internet is anonymous, don't worry!

Otherwise, I'd say a general body mist or body spray can cover a wide range of smells.

I use Asian Supermarket Soap

Margo Original New Pure Neem Extract and Vitamin E Moisturizer for clear skin. Really clears up body odor.

Cinthol Lime Fresh by Godrej is another soap

The soap might be expensive compared to larger size here, but well worth it to remove odors.

You can buy Margo soap in Indian grocery store. Small Indian grocery might not keep every brand of soap. I brought mine from Asian (Large Indian grocery store) located at Albion and Hwy 27 (if I am correct) Etobicoke area I think they call it. It where the flea market is. Single bar of soap cost around $1.00 or $2.00 or so. (size wise it is smaller then North American soap) There is also a package which contain more Margo soap in one pack costing more. But I wouldn't try bigger package, try it first with a single Margo soap. I usually buy the soap that are almost all sold out. (knowing it's a good soap). It keeps odor out most of the day, it's not a cure all soap. But I find it better then most North American Soap.

Some soap contain Sandalwood, which are good but not long lasting as Margo. I just like the odor of the soap, strong.

Amazon.ca sell Margo soap too but at a way higher price which I wouldn't dish out.

Yes, there is a scent to it. I can't describe it. More like leaves scent, something similar to Irish Spring Soap but longer lasting and bit stronger. (masking odor to people around you, but it does give off some odor in early stage) It's like feeling more clean for longer hours. I don't feel oily afterward but more refreshing. I don't know if Margo soap is only for facial wash but I use it while showering. Does it smell like Dettol, a bit.

The problem with most soap is, it removes oil from the skin. Once the oil is removed you get dry skin, promotes itching. My doctor told me to use the soap in vital places like armpits and so on. But once in a while I use Margo soap all around my body. Feels rejuvenated, refreshed. If you work in a dusty place then of course you can consider more soap.

Try Margo soap for $1.00 or $2.00. If it doesn't work out, forget about it.

Those Brahmins (Priest) in temple smell awesome. Never asked them what soap they use. Probably combination of soap and incense stick.

Yes, I am still looking for that ideal soap that would last entire day with pleasant smell.

The thing is, from what other has said to me. Is that you can't smell you own body odor. Yes, you might be able to tell some smell on you clothes if you been cooking for long period of time. But one cannot detect to great extent how ones own body smells. This is where people around you come into focus. They can tell how you body smell. If you do decide to purchase Margo soap, ask people around you to assess you thought the day to get and idea if that soap particularly worked for you.
