What inspired your scent & why do you think these aromatics resonate so positively with people?
I love the scent of Palo Santo -I was introduced to it many many years ago in Peru and always wanted to do something with it. When I met Jeff from Humble and he said let’s do a scent together this first thing I thought of was palo santo-I never met anyone that didn’t like that scent.
chill baby, chill
Donavon's Signature Scent
Inspired by the Donavon's laid back tunes, this scent has its origins in Peru. Get carried away by the sensual and woodsy aromatics with a hint of sweet tonka bean. Donavon himself says that he's never met anyone who didn't like this scent.
Hands down (or up) THEE best natural deodorant in the game. The Palo Santo & Frankincense is my favorite. Lavender & Holy Basil is a nice too. Several people have asked what brand of deodorant I wear, because they love the scent. The protection is solid. No more smelly pits- even after vigorous work outs. Love-Love-Love the creamy consistency too. You've been warned! The awesomeness of this deodorant is addictive! You're welcome in advance.
I love this scent and its lightness and effect on my mood. Due to receiving so many compliments - I recently purchased a subscription delivery for some friends who can’t get enough and can’t find Humble products near them.
So happy with this product! Smells great and actually works.
It is the best product ever. It really works and the smell is amazing.
Very pleasant scent, not too overwhelming. It actually works! Most natural deodorant I’ve tried only lasts a couple hours, but this brand will last all day! It’s the only natural deodorant my husband will wear.
It's a really good value for money given the performance, smell, and the fact that they're made with better ingredients.
I have used the crystal deodorant for years and stumbled upon Humble and wanted to give it a try. I was really nervous about trying any scented before my skin is super sensitive to anything. I love this. No irritation, no reaction. Perfect. The scent is wonderful and I only have to apply once and smell fresh all day. Thank you so much and definitely will be reordering.
Very gentle and works all day. If you love the scent of palo santo, this will make you happy.
After trying nearly every natural deodorant ever made... I finally found one that works, doesn’t make my sensitive skin breakout AND smells great! Highly recommend! Got one for my husband too and he’s also “sold!” We’ll be back for more soon!
works so well. no more smelly pits. perfect for people with sensitive skin like me. smells sooooo good.
Love the sample size deodorants. Gives one a chance to sample all scents to see which ones they like. Love the Patchouli scent. Shipping and packaging were thorough and expedient. Would definitely order again!!!!
Goes on smooth with no sticky feeling, and the fragrances are just right for my sensitive sense of smell. They work really well at fighting stinky sweat!
I appreciate your efforts to make a natural product that actually works. I can count on Humble products to work all day. I love the EO combinations you use as well. Each is different yet pleasant!
The frangrances are fantastic! Keeps me smelling fresh all day long. The deodorant itself is super moisturizing and has helped my issue of a dry patch that had formed under my arm. Very easy to apply and goes on super smooth. I got the travel sizes and am very please with the quantity provided for the price. I love that it’s only 4 ingredients and the fact that I don’t have to worry about nasty things harming my unborn babe.
This is the first time I've actually wanted every item in a bundle. I enjoyed all of the scents and wear any of them with pleasure but the Patchouli and Copal is my favorite.
Rhis is beautifully formulated-- it's light on the skin, effective for a full 24 hours and strikes the right balance between being fragrant and overwhelming.
Copal and Palo Santo would be a glorious blend. Frankincense and Palo Santo don't mix too well my opinion.
Love the travel size!!!!!!!!
I have to praise Humble for making a Palo Santo deodorant first, because I have hoped for one forever and was so excited to find theirs. Secondly, I have to praise them for a great formula. I have very sensitive pits and I can use their regular formula with no issues (I also use the sensitive version because I stocked up on all the palo santo minis I could get). The minis are a great way to test the different scents and they are the perfect size for traveling (not that we are doing too much of that these days). The deodorant also washes off easily, which is something that isn't always the case with natural formulas and it hasn't left any stains on my clothing. I sweat a LOT especially nowadays in Northern California with heat waves and wildfires everywhere, but using these deodorants means I smell awesome from morning to night.The Black Spruce scent is a wonderful forest smell, the Texas Cedarwood and Grapefruit is woodsy with a citrus twist (very bright), and the Palo Santo and Frankincense is the perfect cool, minty and coniferous wood scent. Love them all!
My favorite scents! Great product, great packaging. Very versatile!
Really love this deodorant. I've never had such an amazing smelling deodorant + all natural + WORKS. These smaller ones are perfect for travel or gym bags.
I love these earthy scents! And humble has figured it out!!
All natural, incredible scents & the best stocking staffers this year!!
Found two favorites and one that I would never touch
