Scent control using black walnuts?

Just saw this video on making a scent blocking spray using nothing but black walnuts and water. I happen to have a nice big black walnut tree in my backyard so I might give it a try. Can't hurt right? Anyone else try or have even ever heard of this before?

They definitely have a strong kinda Orange smell.  But like any foreign smell, would it make the deer nervous, or mask your scent?  Unless you're hunting in a grove of BW trees, I wonder if the deer would sense something is out of place. 

I have a client that has a dozen or more BW trees in his yard. I guess it wouldn't hurt to try it, but I definitely didn't like the part about drenching my outfit just before hunting.

unless there's a natural compound within the black walnut that blocks scent receptors then it can't be much different than a scent control (reduction) regiment that also adds cover scent. only cover scent i've used on me is on my boots and that's deer pee or Evercalm in a stick. Back when I was in school and living on the farm I'd climb up into the feed wagon to free up corn silage for the cows. I'd go slow so I didn't sweat but would where my Treebark coveralls while doing it. I had piles of deer downwind that didn't seem to be bothered. You really can't fool a deer's nose though. it's just how much of what they're smelling is enough to make them uneasy or not. I'm sure they smelled my odor, soap I showered in, the fabric of the coveralls, and the corn silage. lol ... probably the chipmunk turd on my boots that I stepped on walking in too.

I touch one of those and my hands are stained for two years, and for that reason...Im out.

That was my first thought. It will stain your clothes and anything it comes in contact with. It is also a tree not present in the places I hunt in NJ or NY.
