I don't know about scent free, but I like No Stinkin Bugs fall blend. I've used it for the last 3 years and it works great. Deer don't seem to mind the smell either.

I like no stinking bugs for fishing and scouting but not for hunting. I use a thermacell for hunting. It's odorless and works better than any spray I've ever used. It's one drawback is cost and cost of opperation(roughly $0.50 and hour). I know $.50 an hour dosn't sound like much but it adds up over a season.

If it's breezy I don't use it because the bugs aren't bad and it dosn't work great when it's windy but on a day when the air is still you can literaly count the mosquitos you see on one hand.

Thermacell is the greatest thing created since...Pocket on a shirt...and I know..I live in N. Florida. The mosquitos are so bad here, I almost gave up bowhunting. I do not go in the woods bowhunting without my thermacell.

Permanone is the only way to go. I get it at Walmart. You spray your clothes with it and you can even wash your clothes and it will last for two weeks. No odor and works great. This is the best I have found.
