Question on Deodorant Soap in Europe, or lack of.

I looked in a couple of stores for something like Irish Spring in Germany and couldn't find any Deodorant Soap at all.

On our most recent trip to Germany I brought a little bar of Irish Spring and almost ran out! I plan on bringing a BIG bar next year but was curious if this type of soap might not be illegal in Europe.
Any Comments?

Maybe the TV commercials were just so offensive to the Irish that they forced a ban across the EU?

I haven't seen any Lucky Charms on the shelves at European supermarkets either.

For your lucky charm, you might want to pack a bar of your favorite soap and deo and skip the hunt for it when you get to Europe.

My guess is that it isn't any more "deodorant" than any other soap. Just smellier. Maybe laws in Europe don't allow it to be advertised as such.

Euros are money, how can they bathe?

Criminals in the US 'launder' money all the time; phred must have assumed the same happened in Europe.

10 points for Kenko.

To answer the question, I don't think you'll find border agents stopping you from bringing a bar of Irish Spring with you.

Thanks to all!

Next year when in France we will continue our search for the soap We enjoy our visits to DM, Netto and Rossmanns.

I will definitely bring a full bar next year for our month of travels!

Be safe!
