    Absolutely YES!  There is nothing worse than being next to someone who thinks otherwise  :-(

    In the southeastern United States, most definitely!  When I was waiting tables, I wished all my customers thought the same. Some were "strong" enough to bring tears!

    I am of the belief we need to use as few chemicals as possible. I am lucky in that sense as I don't need a lot. I like to use an aluminum free salt formula for women to prevent breast cancer.

    Nope! There are many religions that prohibit the use of deodorants, and there are of course places all around the world where deodorants are unavailable or completely unheard of.

    I like to smell pretty, though. And my form of pretty is not what is described by our society as body odor. xD LOL. I think we would be perfectly capable of living without it.

    Not if you want to smell like a sewer rat.

    That certainly depends. Personally, I believe deodorants should be used. But there are also people who prefer not to use it for their own reasons. I think it is more a personal choice, rather than a neccessity. Yes, I use it! That is my choice.

    It's certainly a personal choice as rightly said by xXSweetiXx. But I feel that we should use deodorants as it's a kind of aroma therapy. Any sweet fragrance will make take deep breathe and it works like pranayam(Breathing exercise) and you'll feel fresh whole day.

    It's personal choice, but I use it daily each morning after my shower and wouldn't be without it.

    Deodorants are definitely essential for daily grooming and hygiene.
    When speaking of hygiene, this also goes together with health issues. I understand it is safer to use non-alcoholic/water-based deodorants than otherwise. The good fragrance of deodorants unfortunately disappear if one does not use it the right way. When a deodorant is sprayed on or rolled on, one needs to make sure that the area is dried, completely sealing off the perspiring pores. And then they are good to go/to fight a longer duration against perspiration. My take!

    It depends, I know people that are allergic too deodorant.  And others that do not wear it.  Personally I do but if you are not one that sweats a lot and you bathe on a regular basis then it shouldn't matter.

    Ofcourse, because I don't want to smell anyones body odor.

    I too think it is a personal choice but.... If you have a day when you are perspiring and you choose not to use deodorant/antiperspirant you may stand out in a crowd.  If you work in an office I would suggest it is a good idea.  If you work mucking stables.....who cares.

    You have some nice hubs, by the way.

    I think that the need for deodorants in daily hygiene and grooming depends on the person. A lot of people don't realize that bad smelling armpits are not par for the course. Fungal infections can crop up without us realizing it.

    If you change your razor often enough, or wash it thoroughly, you can better avoid such infection. A few drops of Colloidal Silver placed on a cotton ball can be a gentle way to get rid of fungal infections in the armpits. Colloidal Silver can actually help cure a lot of ailments, as long as you don't consume too much...because too much can turn you blue. And no one wants that.

    The need for deodorant also depends on body weight and level of physical activity. A small, very thin woman who works in an air conditioned environment and doesn't do a lot of physical activity could probably get away without using deodorant in her daily hygiene and grooming routine--given that she still showered often. I am of medium weight and practice hot I DEFINITELY need deodorant. I use Tom's Natural Deodorant, but there are a lot of great ones out there without Aluminum or dangerous chemicals.

    Thanks for the interesting question!
