Yes, cats have a powerful sense of smell and hydrosols will make a cat not spray in a particular area but the spray will not stop a cat from continuing to spray. The spray only makes the cat go somewhere else to mark its territory. Also, extremely dominate tomcats may even spray over the hydrosol instead of being driven away.
The only way to stop a male cat from spraying or marking its territory is to neuter the animal. Yes, the spray may make the pet not spray in one specific location, but it will continue its natural behavior of spraying other places until neutered.
