I hunted with a guy who swore if you ate a toe of raw garlic in the morning that your breath would confuse the deer. He thought some of them actually came in to try and see what the smell was. Work? No idea, but in his mind it helped so I guess that's what counts.
My Uncle had a similar theory about hanging a 9V transistor radio on the tree right beside his ear turned on so he could just barely hear it drew 'em in. Work? No idea, but he got his deer every year...
That basically leaves me planing what I was from the start: use the same dye/scent free laundry detergent I already have
to use, use unscented deodorant from the CVS around the corner, use the 99% Scent Killer Gold spray and field wipes
(on my boots, clothes, etc., right before going out), take my coffee with me in the morning, and of course, pay attention
to the wind (if there is any to pay attention to, that is). And from there, see what happens while I'm out in October
looking for where the deer are moving (finding my spot and shooting with a camera instead of a rifle).
