Instead of WWLR, you get this

I bought a little cache of toiletries for use at the gym, and one of them is a stick of deodorant that is the same brand and same line as my regular brand, but a different variety.

Now, I have no complaints about this deodorant. It's effective, even on my globular slicked-out frame after a workout, and it's reliable, and it's not that expensive*. But here's the thing about it: instead of smelling like a fresh and zesty bar of soap, like my normal deodorant, it smells like candy.

To be more specific, it smells exactly like a Jolly Rancher.

This doesn't bother me, exactly; like I said, the stuff does what it's supposed to do, and it's not an unpleasant smell, as such. It's just an unexpected one, and it leaves me vaguely craving Jolly Ranchers for the rest of the day after I work out. I think this is kind of a strange choice on the part of the Colgate-Palmolive marketing department, unless they have some sort of synergistic cross-promotional deal going with Hershey's.

*: Sorry, folks, this is as close to TMI as you're ever gonna get out of my journal, now that my sex filter, which I think I only ever used once anyway, is as dusty and cobweb-bedecked as my sex organ.
