The beequick thing is not the way to go, it will wear off likely within 24-36 hours where you will have to reapply. Besides its quite an eye irritant! And a pricey repellant!
I must agree with the others here about the scent thing, I use odorless deodorant and natural smelling shampoos that don't have a lingering strong odor. I also never use cologne. I have had bees voice their displeasure to me when I used something strong smelling.
Also, what race of bees and where did you get them? (location)
