    Re: The New World Odor

    Good point Wandrin. I see two major issues: 1) Skin is porous. Wouldn't that alcohol leach into your bloodstream? Drunk in charge by deodorant...? and 2) users of this method being mugged, stripped and licked clean by alkies...

    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    The aroma of Whiskey (Whisky) itself is not the same as the odor of alcohol after consumption.

    Hopefully they can expand to cover a number of fragrances, like Kentucky Bourbon, Scotch, even perhaps Cognac, hmm, yeah, I can see a market

    Re: The New World Odor

    Hi everyone! I'm new here obviously and from Pit Liquor, but saw this fancy forum post and thought I would throw my 2 cents in the "what it is worth" department and answer a few questions that appeared here.

    We spell whiskey with an "E" unless Twitter or something will not let us due to length. Sorry, Scottish people.

    You spray it on your pits and the alcohol evaporates so you smell like an oak barrel. Think wood shop or forest rather than hangover. If it still bothers people we have an unscented Vodka version that just got funded.

    And finally, you can't get drunk off of it. While it is correct that skin is somewhat porous (hence why we are only using things that are normally consumable ie safe inside your body) not enough can be absorbed before it evaporates away to have any effect on you at all. Fun fact: Most hand sanitizers also use grain alcohol(ethanol) to disinfect, and a few traditional deodorants do as well. They just also use things like parabens, farnesol, and formaldehyde (Also, whiskey is more fun).

    Also, getting mugged and licked by alkies, yeah, that is just a risk people who use Pit Liquor will have to take.

    Re: The New World Odor

    I just wrote a post before the last one and it didn't end up showing up and seems to have disappeared, so here is a second attempt a while later, as I am new here sorry if it ends up duplicating things. As I am from Pit Liquor, I can answer a few of the questions that came up.
    1. We spell Whiskey with an "e", sorry Scottish(?) people.
    2. The ethanol evaporates off leaving you smelling like an oak barrel. Think forest or woodshop, rather than hangover. If it still bothers you, there is a completely unscented Vodka that just got funded.
    3. While it is entirely correct that skin is porous (hence why everything that we use is a consumable found in grandmas kitchens - we just use salt and a few other things to make it taste super nasty) you can't get any absorbed before the alcohol evaporates off.
    Fun fact: Most hand sanitizers and many traditional deodorants use industrial grain alcohol(ethanol) to kill bacteria. The traditional deodorants just also use things like parabens, farnesol, and formaldehyde.
    Fun fact #2 Deodorants are completely unregulated
    Fun fact #3 Whiskey is more fun.
    Fun fact #4 I'm a deodorant nerd.
    Also, like I mentioned in the previous post, yeah getting mugged and licked is totally a thing. Good call Cloudhopper.

    Absolutely! Currently it is on our list of ideas we would love to do, though it might be a while as we are trying to keep things as simple as we can as while we are getting off of the ground and we have a growing list of fun ideas. We'd love to have a "Top Shelf" line that would include Cognac among a few others. It does create the whole "it's a shame to spray it rather than drink it" thing, but it is also amazing to get to smell like something we are passionate about (and have it actually work to deodorize your pits!).
