Deo powder in fast
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: can we spray deodrant body spray or talc powder in RAMADAN
There are five things which will break or invalidate the fast:
- Intentional eating
- Intentional drinking
- Sexual intercourse
- voluntary semen discharge
- the menstruation of the woman while fasting
The application of perfume, or deodorant body sprays, or talc powder, etc. do not violate the sanctity or have any relation to the validity of ones fasts whatsoever in the least.

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 187:
187 Permitted to you on the night of the fasts is the approach to your wives. They are your garments. And ye are their garments. Allah knoweth what ye used to do secretly among yourselves; but He turned to you and forgave you; so now associate with them and seek what Allah hath ordained for you, and eat and drink until the white thread of dawn appear to you distinct from its black thread; then complete your fast till the night appears; but do not associate with your wives while ye are in retreat in the mosques. Those are limits (set by) Allah; approach not nigh thereto. Thus doth Allah make clear His signs to men that they may learn self-restraint.
No human being who ever walked on this planet earth feared Allah Subhanah more, loved Allah Subhanah more, worshipped Allah Subhanah more, or understood the Commands of the Lord better than the noble self of the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws)..and the Messenger of Allah (saws) understood and implemented the above quoted Command of the Lord .then complete your fast till the night appears to mean as soon as the sun had completely set.
Sahl ibn Sad reported that the Prophet (saws) said: "The people will always be with the good as long as they hasten in breaking the fast."

Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 2346 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
The Prophet (saws) said: Religion will continue to prevail as long as people hasten to break the fast, because the Jews and the Christians delay doing so.
Said Sahl ibn Sa'd narrated that the Prophet (saws) said: "All the Prophets of Allah have been ordered to hasten the breaking of the fast and to delay the suhoor (pre-fast dawn) meal.

Anas reported: "The Messenger of Allah (saws) would break his fast with ripe dates before he would pray (Magrib prayers). If those were not available, he would eat dried dates. If those were not available, he would drink some water."
Related by Abu Dawud, al-Hakim, and by at-Tirmidhi.
It is the absolutely preferred Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) to break ones fast immediately after the sun has completely set; ie. at the first call of the magrib adhaan; and offer their magrib prayers after breaking their fast.
To offer ones magrib prayers first and only then break ones fast would be to act against the guidance of Allah and His Messenger (saws).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
