That's interesting and gives me even more of a boost of confidence in the stuff. I don't think anything is 100% but if it helps I'll use it.

I just wash all clothing in the unscented detergent and dry them with the fresh earth dryer sheets then wash with the soap, shampoo, deodorant, and lots of scent killer (autumn formula mostly). I have the big bottle for before the walk and the small bottle for the stand. And I also play the wind like many others here.

After the scent free wash the clothes go into a plastic bag with a little pine branch. While hunting I take a steam sauna every night and use sprays during the day. Watch the wind and 9/10 times the deer won't know you're there. I am a firm believer in the scent controll arena. Take the time to do it and you'll be rewarded.

Here's camp, it's a two story sets down in a hollow with rock ledges on the north and nice hemlock/pine trees around it. Throw in some mountain laurels for more camo- in look. We have a spring in front of the camp with a spring house over it, we built a steam sauna, wood fired of course, to relax in and this is our sourse of hot water for showers. The camp is all propane, no phone, no TV. We try to run the sauna at 170*, they naturally cleanse you from the inside out, not to mention you sleep like a baby. Staying clean/watch the wind works more than anything else in keeping the critters from scenting you.
