    My husband has worn British Sterling Aftershave since we met (more than 32 years ago). When the matching deodorant came out, we bought it and he loved it, too.

    It then became impossible to find it in stores. He tried many different deodorants, and we were unhappy, one way or another. The smell would be overpowering, or would not complement his aftershave.

    So nice to find it at Drugstore.com! I ordered 4 and will be ordering more when he runs out. We both are happy since we love the aftershave, and it's so nice to have the same smelling deodorant available.

    Let me start this off by saying: I love British Sterling; been wearing it for more years than I care to remember. Never had any problems with it... till now. When I got my latest restock of it, I noticed the new container. No big deal; I've seen new ones from time to time. Then I started using it & thats where my disappointment starts in. I don't know what they've put in there but this is most definitely the British Sterling I know & love. It's a much harder consistancy than the old stuff. Doesn't seem to apply nearly as well. And the scent - not even close. It doesn't even last thru my work day before my natural scent starts to peek out. My s/o also asked if there was something changed on me & I don't even remember mentioning to her that they'd changed the formula.

    It's a shame when a product gets 'updated' & the replacement is a mere shadow of the outgoing version. It's also a shame when one has to start asking if what's in stock is to older version or the 'new & improved' one. Hopefully, the manufacturer gets wind of this & somehow brings the old formula back. That's the only way I can see for them to not lose a lot of loyal customer

      Comments about Dana British Sterling Deodorant Stick, 3 oz:

      This product used to come in a blue container and had the original British Sterling fragrance. It now comes in a gray container and the fragrance smells nothing like the unique, original fragrance. I contacted Dana and they said they had enough complaints that they have returned to the original fragrance formula but the retail shops will take a while to dump their current inventory. They said to make sure the description includes "original fragrance" to get the traditional British Sterling fragrance.

          Not at all like the original fragrance in the blue container. This one is not as good. May as well buy a cheap Mennen's deoderant from a local department store.

          Comments about Dana British Sterling Deodorant Stick, 3 oz:

          This is NOT British Sterling. This is an item that looks, smells, feels completely different from the original, only the name is the same. Why would you completely redesign a product but keep the original name. This is just stupid. After 30 years of using the ORIGINAL blue container of British Sterling I am searching for a replacement, not easy by the way. Note to Dana Industries: Seriously WTfunk?

              I had been using this product for over 20 years, the last batch the formula totally changed. Threw it in the garbage, not worth the hassle of returning

                  I am really disappointed with this product. It smells nothing like the original British Sterling. I am disappointed that Dana is trying to pass it off as such. It smells like toilet water for an old lady. The only thing redeeming about this "improved" product is that as it is used, the product stays in the container barrel better than earlier versions where the product came loose from the container barrel.

                        My latest shipment of British Sterling Deodorant by Dana in September 2013 is entirely different from what it has been in the past. The color and fragrance are completely different. It almost smells like a weak version of Old Spice.

                        I have used British Sterling deodorant for over 20 years and it has always been the same. That includes my previous shipment from drugstore.com in 2012 that was consistent with what the product has always been.

                        I've returned the items and will be looking for another brand.

                                Drugstore.com says this is "Made in USA." In fact, only the "fragrance oil" is made in USA, as stated on the label. The rest is made and packaged in [*]. The labels are crudely put on the stick. What's happening with these Dana classic fragrances? I'll stick to the American- and European-made products, where quality standards remain high
