Choosing a scent can be hard. So many choices and for now, at least, you can't smell through your phone or desktop. If you asked us what the best scent was you'd get a looong answer. We love them all like we love our children. (Pssst, ok, Whiskey Black Pepper is super dope.)
But don't listen to us, the sales data doesn't lie. If you're looking for a new favorite scent check out our top sellers from 2021 starting with...
Coming in at number three, Whiskey Vanilla’s warm and inviting scent is a crowd pleaser. Imagine sipping whiskey while eating your favorite cookie- that’s the warmth of whiskey vanilla. It’s whiskey base kicks odor where it counts while giving you cozy vibes of vanilla.
At Pit Liquor we pride ourselves on real ingredients and local suppliers, our whiskey is made just a few miles from our warehouse by Feisty Spirits. Self-described as "Purveyors of unique grain-to-glass whiskeys and other fine spirits," Feisty takes their whiskey-making seriously, using non-traditional grains to make unique whiskeys that they serve in their taproom. They proudly hold the title of "Fort Collins' first distillery" - you've gotta love the synergy because we are Fort Collins' first deodorant maker.
Our ingredients are so real that they just might surprise you. The vanilla essential oil in our bottles turns green when mixed with our proprietary blend of teas, creating little green bubbles of scent and odor-fighting goodness. And even better, you can find real vanilla beans in the bottle - no fake fragrances or chemicals here.
Whiskey Vanilla may sound like a tame fragrance, but this beast kicks stink and is a favorite of everyone from hard-core whiskey drinkers, outdoorsmen, bakers, mechanics, moms, and more.
Fun fact: Even though our Whiskey Vanilla ranks number three in overall sales, we actually sell more 100ml bottles of Vanilla than our second place winner. Looks like Vanilla is gunning for that silver medal. You can give it a try (and boost it’s score to second place!) in 100ml, 50ml, roll-on, and Refill.
Finally, a real lavender scent that isn’t from your grandma's potpourri basket. After searching high and low for the best lavender, our founders discovered English Lavender, rather than the commonly used French Lavender. It has a subtle earthy and floral scent that’s not overpowering.
Gender neutral at it’s finest, you can share this spray-on with everyone you know, minus the germs or funk. Lavender can even work as an antiseptic, so keep a bottle in your car or medicine cabinet for when you’re in a pinch. Best of all, lavender has been shown to visibly reduce stress levels. We can all use a little stress-reduction, so spray your pits, take a big whiff of that lavender, and breathe easy.
As you might have expected, our lavender is locally grown (by the folks at Busy Bee Farms) and harvested by the Pit Liquor team each summer (you can watch our team in action here). Stay stink free year round and bask in the glow of a sunny lavender field. Our silver-medalist is available in 100ml, 50ml, roll-on, Refill, and as part of our Best-Sellers bundle.
Despite selling a whole lotta whiskey-based products, our biggest seller is actually Coconut Rum with Lime. Who doesn’t want to channel their best summer vacay these days?
Sharp lime, lush coconut, and a shot of rum make this deodorant feel like a tropical vacation in the midst of your daily grind. Since its debut in 2019, we’ve sold thousands of bottles of Coconut Rum with Lime. Our intern said that’s enough deodorant to fill several bath tubs, so excuse us while we literally bathe in our favorite tropical smell.
One of the reasons our Coconut Lime deodorant is so popular is because many find it to be the most effective scent for them. Why, you ask? Lime essential oil is very acidic, and this acid takes stench-quenching power to a whole new level. And don’t forget about the coconuts! We use coconut alcohol that’s actually made from fermented coconuts. Drunk coconuts give the best scent and keep your pits fresh and bacteria-free.
This powerful + effective deodorant will keep you stink free no matter how much fun you’re having in the sun. Find it now in 100ml, 50ml, roll-on, Refill, and as part of our Best-Sellers bundle.
Whatever your favorite scent, you can be confident in Pit Liquor's stench-quenching alcohol base and truly natural scent ingredients. Now that's a match worth spraying on your pits!
The fact that you use Pit Liquor already tells the world that you’re a badass, conscious consumer who cares about their body and the environment. Go you! But did you know that the scent you choose might also have a little something to say about your personality?
Your fun-loving and adventurous spirit knows no-bounds and truly thrives in the scorching summertime. Despite soaring temperatures, you throw on a yellow swimsuit and coverup then bike to the river to bathe in mama nature’s chilly waters. You’ve recently started letting your body hair grow because you're so over modern beauty standards but you’re not totally sure you like how it looks and feels - yet. You’re definitely a kid at heart and not totally sold on the adulting thing so you shirk some responsibilities - like parking tickets, anything post office related, and bringing that box of clothes to the thrift store. However, you are responsible enough to hold down a few jobs that allow you to buy farmers market produce and afford a new pair of Birkenstocks. Priorities, baby.
Whiskey Old Fashioned
You’re a crisp white shirt and blue jeans kind of guy or gal. Your collection of bolo ties is something to marvel at and you’ll always choose John Wayne over John Krazinski. As a child, your parents giggled at your “old soul” as you steeped a cup of Earl Grey before cozying up with a good comic book. Now, you’re an elegant adult who has both a typewriter and a record collection because life is meant to be savoured in a slow, meaningful way. Even if that means you have to lug a heavy typewriter and complete collection of Agatha Christie novels around every time you move apartments, you’ll bite the bullet and do it. John Wayne would be proud. Whiskey Old Fashioned sold out? Make your inner Annie Oakley proud with Whiskey Lavender.
Roses & Champagne
Oh you fancy, huh? Well why the hell wouldn’t you be? Life’s too short not to treat yourself to a dozen roses and champagne in your cereal. You’re decadent and your friends love you for it. You take things over the top - surprise birthday party for your cat complete with 200 balloons? You went there and it was so damn fun for everyone, except the cat. It’s likely that you have a few too many vintage dresses in your closet that you haven’t found an excuse to wear. No worries, you’ll throw a Queen’s Gambit-themed party one day soon and you won’t need to shop for an outfit. But you probably will anyway.
You’re always on island time baby and we ain’t mad about it. Start times really are just a suggestion and you always roll up looking cool as a cucumber, ready to go with the flow no matter where it takes you. You're a windows down-AC on type and your low fuel light is constantly on. But you’ll be fine for a few more miles, surely. Nothing ruffles your feathers, not a global pandemic, not a tumultuous election, not even when Jamba Juice runs out of pineapple and can’t make your favorite Caribbean Passion smoothie. If on the off chance you get the slightest bit flustered you simply pause and ask yourself, “WWJBD” or “What Would Jimmy Buffet Do”?
Move over Paul Bunyan. There’s a new lumberjack in town and he wears that flannel well. You spend your leisure time building the tiny home of your dreams that you’ll soon whisk away to the mountains. Cold winter mornings don’t bother you, in fact, you love the excuse to split wood out back with your grandfather’s ax, then come in from the cold and sip a cup of strong black coffee, only to feel your beard grow thicker and even more luxuriant. Your loofah is a pine cone and you’ve recently decided to only eat meat that you hunt yourself. It may be a lean winter but you’ve almost perfected your rabbit stew recipe.
