As it beckons men towards you, it also drives the mosquitoes away. Victoria’s Secret Bombshell ensures only love bites; there is no room for mosquito bites. Wear it to experience it!
Recently, a team of researchers from New Mexico State University (east (NMSU) conducted a test. To establish the ability to ward off mosquitoes, they tested insect repellents, fragrances and a patch. The results were incredible. They found out that Bombshell, a perfume by Victoria’s Secret, prevented the approach of insects when used in high concentrations.
As reported to Today by Immo Hansen, an associate professor at NMSU, “We tested VS Bombshell because one of our test subjects had gotten it as a birthday present, so it was a completely random pick. Since it smells flowery and sweet, we thought that it would attract mosquitoes, but the reverse was true.”

“It was interesting to see that the mosquitoes weren’t actually attracted to the person that was wearing the Victoria’s Secret perfume – they were repelled by it,” quoted Stacy Rodriguez, research assistant in NMSU’s Molecular Vector Physiology Lab.
The researchers conducted the test on around 11 products: Repel 100 Insect Repellent, OFF Deep Woods Insect Repellent VIII, Cutter Skinsations Insect Repellent, Cutter Natural Insect Repellent, EcoSmart Organic Insect Repellent, Cutter Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent, Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard, Avon Skin So Soft Bath Oil, Victoria’s Secret Bombshell perfume and a vitamin B1-based Mosquito Skin Patch.
The researchers discovered that the Victoria’s Secret perfume prevented the species for about two hours.

Researchers discovered that the most efficient way to guard against insect bites are still products having DEET or oil of lemon eucalyptus, like Off! Deep Woods and Cutter. Moreover, compared to Bombshell, which retails for $52, these repellents cost around $5. However, as most of us don’t like the smell of bug spray, perfume is a good alternative, says Starpulse.
Hansen further added to her statement and said, “In our experiments, best protection was achieved with 30 percent or 95 percent DEET-containing repellents, or oil of lemon eucalyptus. I personally use a 30 percent DEET repellent when I go into the field — or my backyard.”
