* Money saving solutions to get a subtle scent

Most deodorants keep you from stinking but don’t necessarily make you smell pleasant. Colognes make you smell nice but don’t control body odor. Plus, they’re expensive. And wearing both together can be a bit much on the nostrils. But, here’s a helpful hack: deodorants that smell like colognes. They pull double duty to keep you odor-free and heighten your attraction, giving you just enough of a subtle scent without being overpowering.
