If I recall, isn't the Biwell a fish oil product, or maybe its one of
the others.  Some have a beeswax base.  So the bears will eat you
because they think you smell like a beehive full of honey, or a salmon. 
Worse yet, what does a bear think when he smells that 200 lb goose in
your tent at night (for those of us with down bags)???   :-))))
