I don't go to great extremes. Over the years I have realized that if I'm careful to stay downwind from game then scent doesn't really matter much. And if I'm upwind from the game then no matter what I do it's not enough.
So, I use scent-free and brightener-free detergent to wash my hunting clothes, and I use scent-free soap and deodorant for myself, but besides that I just mostly remain constantly aware of the direction of air movement.
I wash my clothes in scent free soap, store them in an airtight container with earth scent dryer sheets, shower with non scent soap use no-scent deodorant, wear rubber boots, and spray down with earth scent spray.
If you want the best results you have to go all out.
everyone goes to extremes when preparring for scent controll but nobody thinks about how bad their breath stinks! I bring a little bag of cut up apples and suck on a small peice at a time. i guess its worked so far.

When you hunt for a Production Company like I do....you always worry about scent-control.Being sponsored by X-System I don't have to worry about paying big-bucks for Scentblocker or Scent-lok.But If you like your normal camo and don't want anything else buy X-system Base-Layers.The shirt costs around $20 and the pants around $20 also its not too bad!
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
