Wow, I would never put that skunk scent on my boots, or anything I was going anywhere near home,truck or barn with. I would put 4 or 5 drops of each bottle on an upturned leaf. And I would be sure it was slightly downwind. It was potent stuff. My wife smelled it a few times as well. She made her thoughts very clear. It was essentially no dear if she could smell the skunk.
