    Well, at uni one of my friends was really drunk and said to this girl "this is deodorant. you night want to try it" and sprayed loads at her. That wasn't a good approach.

    An anonymous bottle of deodorant might be the best way. He can get offended and upset in private, and won't ever know who it was to get offended at.

    Honesty is the key. Just find a way of telling them honestly that they smell. I mean, there are worse things to tell someone than that they don't smell like roses.

    Just tell them while still keeping it subtle. Being given deodorant is more insulting because you're not acknowledging in front of them that they smell. People are more comfortable when things are open and honest. Just like if people are going to say nasty stuff about you, you'd probably prefer it if they said it in front of you, rather than behind your back, in a cowardly fashion.

    It's not. It's all about the way you tell them. As trigger would say "have you no communication skills?" (I know I don't...)

    In the end you have to tell them properly instead of shying away from the situation and being a coward. I would hate it if for example someone put a bottle of deodorant in my drawer. I would only do that to someone I dislike.

    If it's a friend, you just have to tell them.

    Just make light of it, and for heavens sake don't say that they 'always' smell.

    'Blach! Did you forget you deodorant today or summin?'

    Oh but then there are those ppl who don't belive in deodorant; like my dad. It's either something to do with natural body scent and pheremones, or it gives you pitt cancer, I don't know

    My sister had a friend who smelled once. She would come round to our house and stink out the rooms so badly that I had to run around with an air freshener after her. Eventually my sister gathered up the courage to tell her that she had a BO problem. Her response? 'No that's not me - it's just the smell of my deoderant.'

    Some people are just in denial. :p:

    there is this thing you put on your feets like a powder,and before and after you wear your shoe wash them with soap,and when you take off your shoe don't put it in a closet of something like that,put it infront of the window or something,doing these three togather would work
