Used it while hunting and found that it keeps the mosquitos away (as advertised), but unfortunately deer as well. Deer under my stand didn't smell it, but after the scent cooled down and dropped to the ground, the deer about 60 yards away smelled it, started snorting like crazy, and within minutes all deer around me were staring at me then running off. I was busted, so I had to move my stand. I obviously have not tried it again, and have not had any further issues being scented/winded by deer without it. I only bought it for hunting, but I'll keep it for my back deck instead.
