Yes;

TEMP=/tmp; export TEMP

is equivalent to:

export TEMP=/tmp

In order to "see" the variable setting you'll need either to re-log in
as that user, or use ". ~/.bash_profile" rather than just
"~/.bash_profile". Simply executing the profile will not set the
variable in your current shell, you need to "source" it instead using
".".
