In a study published in the Journal of Insect Science, researchers from New Mexico State University tested out 10 different substances—including two perfumes—to find the most effective mosquito repellents.

While other studies have shown that floral scents actually attract mosquitos, the opposite was found to be true for Victoria’s Secret Bombshell as a seemingly accidental result of this experiment. The fragrance turned out to be almost as effective as the widely used insect repellent DEET; it repelled mosquitos for 120 minutes. Source
