The Problem

Finding a good-smelling deodorant has always been impossible for me. They smell chemically abrasive, cheap, and without any real quality. It was this problem that lead me to develop my own natural deodorant with custom designed fragrances. And I am so happy with how they turned out.

My Co.

5 years ago I launched my first Kickstarter campaign, which became one of the most successful of its kind. That enormous front-end support allowed me to start Misc. Goods Co. and create more and more products that my customers have come to trust. 

For this new project I’m venturing into a different market to solve a problem I see. This means that my initial risk is to produce 5,000 sticks of deodorant with a portion of that production cost covered by your pledges. This Kickstarter page is dedicated to bringing that product to market - a Natural Deodorant by Misc. Goods Co. 

Our team, while working alongside the British perfumer Sarah McCartney of the company 4160 Tuesdays, spent months conceptualizing the scents. We designed 20 prototypes before landing on two complex, earthy and unique fragrances made from the world’s best natural essential oils and botanical extracts. We call them Underhill and Valley of Gold.

About the Smells

Underhill is a scent inspired by the smells of traveling in nature. A mix of 14 ingredients, the fragrance is deep and complex with aromas of wild herbs such as Rosemary and Athelas, along with leather, pipe tobacco, several wood species, open air and a sweet scent of freshly poured (or spilled) ale.

Valley of Gold is the smell of wild gardens in blossom amidst woods; a place where rose, lavender, geranium, myrtle and broom flower grow freely alongside rosemary, honey bush and surrounding trees. This arrangement creates a balanced, floral, earthy smell, which combines 11 ingredients.

About the Deodorant

Aluminum Free and Paraben Free.

We’ve added these fragrances to our natural solid deodorant base, manufactured here in the United States. Some of the most common ingredients are Arrowroot Powder, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Jojoba Oil. Visit our FAQ to see the full list of ingredients. 

This deodorant is formulated to keep you smelling nice all day.

The Dopp Kit

We're also releasing a brand new traveler's dopp kit exclusively for this Kickstarter campaign. We worked with our local friend and bag maker Austin of Koester Co. to help us develop our concept of how a toiletry bag should look and feel. This bag can easily carry all of your bathroom items as you move from place to place. It’s made from heavy duck canvas and designed with a roll top, fastened by a leather strap and brass o-rings. Also made in the USA.

The Solid Colognes

And lastly, our Solid Colognes can be purchased alongside our Natural Deodorants for this campaign. 

The fragrance of traditional liquid perfumes and colognes can dissipate quickly because they easily evaporate, especially when you perspire.

Our solid beeswax-based balms stay on longer, with the deep and complex scents of Underhill or Valley of Gold that can last all day. Like many of our products, it’s made to carry with you, wherever you travel. The replaceable cologne insert holds .22oz and fits into a case (2.1x2.9x.67 in.) made of cherry or walnut wood and held together by two sets of magnets. 

Testimonials

We know that you can't smell these scents through your screen, so below are some testimonials from different people we asked to test both Underhill and Valley of Gold Natural Deodorant.
