Unless you’re a man or European, you’ve likely never tried spray deodorant. Since the ‘70s, North American women have been slathering their armpits with creams, sticks, gels, crystals and roll-ons while the rest of the world simply spritzed—and not without reason. When aerosol deodorants were first introduced to the market, many contained chlorofluorocarbons, which released chlorine into the atmosphere and damaged the ozone layer. Today, these have been replaced by less harmful chemical additives, encouraging a new generation of sprays.

So, why switch over? While other popular types of deodorant are still effective, there are a few benefits to using a spray. First, it’s super easy. Just point and shoot. Also, most are made with quick dry formulas that absorb faster than, say, a traditional stick. So, you don’t have to worry about staining your clothes, and you’ll get that immediate fresh feeling. Also, you can share sprays without feeling gross. Hands up if you’ve forgotten to bring your deodorant to the gym or on a business trip. With a spray it’s not weird asking someone if you can borrow a spritz. It’s kind of like sharing perfume.

Thinking of giving it a try? Here are some of the most popular options on the market right now:
