If you're going to explore the outdoors it's important to be protected. This sprays on evenly and although it has a scent initially it is not overbearing and you can stay protected not just from mosquitoes, but other potentially harmful critters, like ticks!
I always use the backwoods insect repellent, it is much more effective. I travel a lot to the islands in the carribean and they always insist we wear bug repellent and this is always my choice. I highly recommend.
