I use a fruity smelling deodorant for a few years, and for about a week now it smells bitter, and more like ammonia or floral perfum.. Almost like a mans deodorant? What could have caused this? And how do I fix it? Is my body in need of a new deodorant?

Dear, it could be a temporary thing. The microbiome party changed where other bacteria, causing more ammonia odour, gained in dominance. Stop using the deodorant for a while and see if it goes back to normal. You could also try another deodorant, but it is difficult to say what effect it will have. In fact, all deodorants cause stress to the existing microbiome. So, the result might be the same. Best, Chris
