In this Geo. F. Trumper Deodorant review, I’ve been quite a fan of some of Geo. F. Trumper’s various grooming products over the years, and it is now high time to review their deodorants. So, I ordered some deodorants online and now going to do a full review of their deodorant. Does it hold up for odor protection? Are the scent profiles good? I will be answering questions like these and more.
So…let’s get to it.

What Is Geo. F. Trumper?
This is an established men’s barber, perfumer, and personal grooming product maker based in London, England. Think old-school. This was established in 1875 by a man named George Francis William Trumper and continues to on until this day.
A posh English gentleman is what comes to my mind when I hear this name and also when I smell some of their scents.
Understanding what they sell also helps to understand the company, and I will list the products they sell.
- Shaving Creams
- Shaving Soaps
- Shower Gels
- Shampoos & Conditioners
- Talcum Powders
- Shaving Brushes
- Shaving Sets
- Leather Goods
What Scents Are Available At Geo. F. Trumper?
Currently, there are eight different deodorants Trumper actually sells. Their deodorants are 75ml and weigh 2.5 fl oz. I marked the deodorants I have purchased with an asterisk, I will update this post when I receive the other deodorants.
- Paisley Deodorant Stick
- Extract of Limes Deodorant Stick*
- Sandalwood Deodorant Stick*
- Eucris Deodorant Stick
- GFT Deodorant Stick*
- Havana Deodorant Stick
- Spanish Leather Deodorant Stick
- Roll On Deodorant
In general, these deodorants are all glycol-based deodorants that help to form a hard deodorant. Each specific deodorant has its own unique set of ingredients, and you should refer to Geo. F. Trumper’s website for specific information. I will list the Extract of Limes Deodorant Stick so you can get an understanding of what is used in their list of ingredients.
Geo. F. Trumper Extract Of Limes Deodorant Stick
Propylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Aqua (Water), Sodium Stearate, Poloxamer 407, Parfum (Fragrance), Oleth-20, Ethylhexylglycerin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Citral, Limonene, Linalool.
How Well Does It Perform? My Experience
I’ve been using their Extract Of Limes Deodorant for many years now, and it has always been a solid performer in odor protection. I easily get 12 hours of protection, though the scent mostly goes away after about the 11- to 12-hour mark, which is more than enough for me.
I work 10-hour shifts at a stainless steel factory job, and it holds up under these conditions more than adequately.
I would give an A- for odor protection.
From the scents I tried, there are winners and losers. This is to be expected as people enjoy different particular scent profiles. The GFT Deodorant stick was okay, and I was kind of unimpressed with it, but I didn’t hate it.
Scent I Enjoy
Extract Of Limes is totally a winner in my book. I just love the smell of limes, and this smells actually like limes. Not a lot of companies get this scent right, but Geo. F. Trumper does. It is a very natural, light, subtle, fresh, and clean scent. I use a lot of lemon and lime in my drinking water from squeezing them into my water. The scent that lingers on my fingers after squeezing limes is truly divine, and it exactly matches this Geo’s deodorant.
A must-try!!! Older or younger men can wear this deodorant, and it is a winner.
Scent I Don’t Like – This Suprised Me
Sandalwood is a pass for me even though I like their Sandalwood Cologne and, in general love anything Sandalwood scented. There is a sweetness I do not enjoy or find pleasurable. Something is off-putting, and I can’t put a finger on it.
Overall, their deodorants work great but might not be what everyone is looking for, as some of their scent profile might be a bit old-fashioned for younger men. But they also do have some really good scents, so it is a bit hit-and-miss on their different scent profiles.
I would highly recommend it for older gentlemen or anyone looking to experiment with a more gentlemanly scent.
Pros & Cons
- One of the best-smelling lime deodorants I have smelled. I love this scent! The Extract Of Limes is a must try!!!
- Geo. F. Trumper recently added new deodorants to their line of deodorants. I love seeing this, but unfortunately, I haven’t received them for this review. But I love seeing an old company transform and adjust to contemporary times.
- Alcohol-free deodorant. If you have a problem with your underarm area drying out of skin-related issues, this might be just what you need.
- Longevity! These deodorants are hard deodorants and last a long time as opposed to softer deodorants, which spread more easily and don’t last as long as a hard deodorant does.
- Decent Performance. While not having an amazing performance, it does perform well for 12 hours and is more than enough to get you through a long day of work.
- Easy to apply.
- No staining or residue was left on my shirt from using any of their deodorants.
- I am not a big fan of the Sandalwood Deodorant. It smells too sweet and not pleasing to my nose even though I love their Sandalwood Cologne as you would think they would be the same scent, but for my nose, it isn’t. I am disappointed in its specific scent profile.
- Their list of ingredients has some chemical names I am not familiar with and could have a more natural set of ingredients.
- Expensive, this is around a twenty spot for a stick of deodorant. But it does last a long time, though.
Questions & Tips
How Long Does The Deodorant Last?
I get 12 hours of protection from using this deodorant.
How Does This Compare To Other Deodorants?
Some of the best deodorants I have used have protection that lasts 24+ hours. This can be a nice reassurance from odor protection if you forget or just have a super long day. I get around 12 hours with Geo. F. Trumper Deodorants. It’s not too bad, but it could be better.

The Final Thoughts On Geo. F. Trumper Deodorant Review
If you are looking for well-established scent profiles and a distinguished air to them, then definitely give Geo. F. Trumper a try. I definitely love some of their scents, and their products have been in my lineup for many years. While other scents I would not buy again because I don’t really enjoy them. Each person has their own scent that they enjoy, and this is to be accepted.
But as far as odor protection, they definitely hold their own and work more than adequately at staving off the underarm stink.
