How to Keep Your Body Smelling Fresh in Singapore’s Humid Weather

It’s okay. It happens! After all, who doesn’t have body odor in Singapore, where it’s either hot or humid. But are deodorants the best way forward? And who can even afford perfume and cologne all the time? Is it even possible to keep your body smelling fresh in Singapore’s humid weather?

We could all use a few tips to make sure you keep your body smelling fresh. Men tend to sweat a little more, hence the extra ‘punch’. And, more often than not, people tend to stay away from strong odor, even if you’re Jungkook from BTS (okay, fine, maybe not when you’re Jungkook from BTS). But ladies and gents alike, if you want to keep your B.O. on the down low, here are the tips to smelling fresh all day.

Stay Minty Fresh

When it comes to smelling fresh, you want to make sure you cover all your bases. No use smelling like a floral paradise when your breath reeks of garlic. So let’s start simple: breath mints.

Keep them in your bags or purses, so you always have them with you. If there is any truth to the advertising by Mentos, it’s that you’ll have every confidence to talk and laugh freely when you smell fresh. Personally, sticking to minty flavours usually works out for the longest. Other flavours tend to warp their scent as time progresses.

Choose the Right Scent

This is a no-brainer for body odor solutions. Aromas have the power to change your mood and your behavior. It can let you feel a wide range of emotions, from feeling confident to relaxed. That’s because our sense of smell is connected to the limbic system— the part of the brain responsible for processing our memories and emotions.

But how do you choose the right scent? Trust your instincts. As perfumers would often say ‘smell with your brain’. Find a scent that you love from the get-go, and just let your mind tell you how you feel about it. Because our brain codes the aroma that we smell, interpreting if it’s pleasant or otherwise. As we go through life, we learn our scent preferences through our first exposure to them. 

It’s through that we make connections between certain fragrances and how we feel about them. Maybe you like to use a scent with peppermint to start your day because you always use peppermint toothpaste in the morning. At the end of the day, it’s about how you connect to a specific scent on an emotional level.

Don’t Mix Fragrances

As well as much as we love fragrances, mixing it up can be a risky business. Most perfumes are already multi-dimensional with a blend of top, mid, and base notes. You could start with using single-note, or uni-directional perfumes. It’s easier to take in the distinctive notes of single-note perfumes because it’s easier to sniff out what works for you.

If you want to layer in different scents, stick to scents from the same fragrance family, like citrus or woody. You can start by layering lighter-scented body washes or deodorants with similar scents to the fragrance you use.

The opposite works too. You can start by choosing a fragrance you like, and then getting body care products that have similar scent types to the fragrance you use.

Dry Your Laundry Outside

Last but not least from our tips to smelling good all day, dry your laundry outdoors. If your laundry is dried indoors, there’d be this smell of moisture clinging onto your clothes. It’s there because there’s less breeze and airflow for the excess moisture particles to disperse. Those moisture particles then condense. That causes increased humidity indoors – such as in flats or laundry rooms. And that smell certainly doesn’t mix well with your body odor.

But the weather changes and all. So your fabric softener is your next best option. Use it together with your laundry detergent when you wash your clothes. Then you’ll smell great without even needing to put on a single spritz of fragrance.


Now, let’s wrap it up with a Singapore twist. Tropika Club Magazine’s take on this? Embrace the tropical vibes, friend!
