The Best Bug Spray You Never Knew About Might Be in Your Cabinet
The summer heat is still raging on, meaning that bugs are still crawling around everywhere, and most annoyingly, that mosquitoes are still quite literally out for our blood. A perfectly good camping trip up to the Snowies, a day at Lake Hattie, or even a picnic at Washington Park can easily be ruined by a swarm of mosquitoes. As much as we try to fight it, sometimes citronella candles just aren't enough, and most people don't like the smell of DEET-based bug sprays. Luckily, there's an alternative for people who would like to keep the bugs away and smell pretty.
I was watching a late night talk show some time back, and heard an actor talking about filming a movie.. The actress said that she and some of her castmates found a man with a fishing boat full of empty Victoria's Secret perfume bottles. When asked why he had them, the fisherman told them that he used it as bug spray. So naturally, I tracked down the perfume to test it out.
It seems completely ridiculous, but the "Amber Romance" fragrance from Victoria's Secret is the most effective bug spray I've ever used. At $8 (at least in the online store), it's a little bit more expensive than the bug spray you can pick up at your local supermarket, isn't it worth it to not smell like bug spray?
