Great scent control is free. I wash in scent eliminating detergents but what I feel really makes a difference (and makes me more confident, which is the big part) is storage between wash and hunting.
I put all my clothes, socks, gloves, base layers, outerlayers, everything, into a storage bin and then I go into the woods and find a nice old log. Break it up with a shovel and sprinkle some of it over the clothes. I mix things around to get it inside and out of jackets and pants. We have a lot of eastern white pine, so I'll cut some limbs about and inch in diameter and shred the bark with a hand saw to release that piney scent and throw those in there. Leaf litter and actual soil is also loaded with the microbes that create that earthy smell.
I leave it outside and dress outside. I just shake everything out to get the debris out before I put it on. When I put my nose into my jacket, like I'm trying not to smell a fart, I get that earthy decomposition smell like the rotting log, and pine sap. I can smell it all day in my stand.
If I don't do this. I'm not confident, I don't even want to go out.
