Scientific Study: Victoria's Secret Perfume Is Actually A Mosquito Repellent

4
Last week we discussed a research study focusing on non-DEET based products. We mentioned the surprise finding that Victoria's Secret Bombshell Perfume did a good job at repelling mosquitoes, albeit using a heavy amount of perfume.

Here's another article written by Gizmodo talking more about the study.


Here's an excerpt from the Gizmodo article: 
You can see that people wearing one of those "natural alternative" mosquito skin patches made with vitamin B actually attracted more mosquitoes than the control, which is kind of hilarious. 
The big surprise, as Rodriguez noted, was the Victoria's Secret perfume, Bombshell. You can see that it's almost as effective as the DEET-laced repellents (attracting only 17% of mosquitoes), and stays effective for 120 minutes.
So if you want to keep mosquitoes away, wear DEET – or really fruity, flowery perfume like Bombshell.
