A clean bug spray that works—naturally.

This first-of-its-kind formula repels mosquitos with a unique strain of Indonesian citronella that's more effective than any other we've found (we put it through independent testing, just to be sure!).

Kinfield Golden Hour™ smells amazing, too—think a little bit citrus, a little bit vanilla. There's a reason this one keeps selling out.

Golden Hour actually smells good. I’ve even had strangers ask what scent I’m wearing. But more importantly: It works. I’ve tested Golden Hour both in the city and countryside, and so far I’m happily bite-free.

I can whole-heartedly swear on all the mosquitos in the world that Golden Hour works.

A bug spray that doesn’t stink—and works really, really well. My mother, who is even more beloved by biting insects than I am, wore it on a marshy family hike and didn’t get a single nibble.

We tested it all last summer and...didn’t get bitten once.

This buy spray smells amazing, but more importantly—it works.

FAQs

You bet! Golden Hour's performance has been tested against Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes through two rounds of double-blind testing by an independent lab.

Seems to work well so far

I notice wearing it that mosquitoes flying about are flying in my view but keep away. I notice with my kids when I have it on and I don't put in on their face because it's very strong (smell) that it seems to ward them off. With that said, it's fairly pungent so make sure you spray yourself outside and check to see if anyone is downwind of you

No more bites!

Golden Hour has been a game changer for me and mosquito bites. I am a mosquito magnet and suffer through the season with tons of bites. After using Golden Hour I don't have that problem anymore! I am so thankful that I found this product.

This actually works

I live on a swampy lot in Alabama where the mosquitos are TERRIBLE, despite treating the property for them. This is the ONLY spray I’ve ever used that keeps not only the mosquitos, but all the little gnats and flying bugs, away from me and the mower. It is an absolute game changer for me.
