Perfume Doubles As Insect Repellant

Perfume Doubles As Insect Repellant

Outscent by Jao is a scent made from essential oils for people who want to repel bugs but don’t want to smell bad.

Jao, a family business with products created by Gale and David Mayron, offers a perfume for people who want to repel insects but don’t want to smell bad. Outscent is made of essential oils without synthetic fragrances. It’s scent, which naturally repels insects, is a blend of grapefruit, fir needle, patchouli, and other wood oils. The unisex fragrance is described as “citrusy, woodsy, earthy, complex and pure” and it blends well with other scents.

Spritz on coats, scarfs and dark colored sweaters in the winter. Wear as a light uplifting scent in summer. For use as a bug repellant, spray on skin or perhaps a kerchief tied around your head or neck on a hike.
