This page is dedicated to taking a closer look at human pheromones and evaluating pheromone products such as pheromone sprays and colognes.
Or maybe a better question might be, do human pheromones exist?
And if so, can they really attract others?
Since starting this web site several years ago, I've received a growing number of questions about pheromone products. Guys want to know if pheromone sprays and colognes really work - and if so, which pheromone products are the best for attracting others.
I've always been very curious about pheromones ever since I first heard about them, so I've decided to do some extensive research on the subject in order to learn as much as I can about this fascinating subject.
Over the past 2 years, I've even tried many of the well-known pheromone products on the market - just to see what would happen.
Not only have I learned a lot about the history and scientific studies involving human pheromones, but I've discovered what works and what doesn't. I now know which products are for real and which are complete garbage.
My tests may not be "clinical" but I think they are a good indication of what to expect (or what not to expect) in real-world situations. In any case, I think you'll find my results very interesting.
But before getting into my results, let's take a moment to understand more about human pheromones - what they are, where they come from, and so on...
So what exactly are pheromones?
Pheromones are airborne chemicals which are emitted to attract the opposite sex.
Researchers at the University of Colorado have found that pheromones are detected through the Vemeronasal Organ (VNO) in the nose. The VNO functions as the distinct sensory apparatus that detects pheromones. All people they examined had two small holes on both sides of the hard divider in the nose. The holes are found just inside the opening of the nose. A group of clear cells lies just behind these holes. These cells are similar in appearance to nerve cells . These scientists have concluded these cells are responsible for detecting human sex pheromones. The pheromones then transmit a signal to the hypothalamus in the brain (the brain's center of emotions), sending a chemical message of sexual attraction.
Pheromones are believed to be detected on an instinctual, subconscious level. In other words, you don't know that you're receiving them, but you are.
There are many different species of animals (including humans) which emit pheromones. In the animal kingdom, it is very easy to see the awesome power that pheromones have over sexual instincts. For example, a dog "in heat" drives other dogs crazy with sexual desire from miles away - using only their natural pheromones.
Basically, the drive to mate is a strong natural instinct in all animals (including humans) and sexual chemicals are what drives those sexual instincts.
But pheromones may be much more important than we realize...
Some experts believe that pheromones drive our social interaction as well.
There are many who believe that pheromones also help to make people feel comfortable around you, and want to be in your presence. In other words, pheromones may not just be purely a sexual attractant. Instead, pheromones may also help trigger non-sexual desires to be near a particular person.
If this is true, then pheromones are even more important to us than we ever thought possible.
At the present, this appears to be just a theory. But it makes sense. If pheromones are truly capable of arousing sexual desire in the opposite sex, then it's not a stretch to believe that pheromones are equally capable of arousing social desires in the same manner.
Either way, it is clear that pheromones are extremely powerful and can definitely influence the sexual desires in others (whether it be with humans or other species).
So where do human pheromones come from?
Pheromones are produced by the human body and are emitted through our sweat glands. Every man and woman produces pheromones.
The problem is: Our bodies DO NOT produce enough pheromones.
According to researchers, humans have essentially lost the ability to naturally produce sufficient quantities of pheromones (at least enough to have a discernible effect on the opposite sex) as a result of evolution.
And to make matters even worse, it is believed that the pheromones humans do produce are often destroyed or overpowered by deodorants, antiperspirants and soaps containing strong chemicals.
This is truly unfortunate considering the importance of pheromones to our social and sexual behavior.
So what's the solution?
Well, most pheromone-selling companies out there would have you believe that the solution is to splash on their pheromone cologne or spray on a little bit of their pheromone spray.
But does this really work?
Is it possible to attract others simply by dabbing on some "pheromone" cologne or spraying on some "pheromone" spray?
I wanted to find out for myself so I decided to give it a try.
I spent my hard-earned money and bought several different products to test - these are my findings.
LET THE TESTS BEGIN!
TEST # 1: My First Pheromone Test - A Highly Advertised Pheromone Spray
My first test came about because I had seen a lot of sales ads for a particular pheromone spray. I'm sure you've seen the ads for it. It's called Pherlure. It's a product that seems to be "recommended" by many different web sites (which I discovered later is only because they pay money to those who recommend it). Anyway, at the time it seemed like the most obvious choice to try first - so I did.
I paid $99.99 plus shipping and bought 3 bottles (bought 2, got 1 free) of this highly-touted pheromone spray and tried it out for myself. I used it as directed for over about 2 1/2 months and guess what happened... ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
That's right! I used this "highly-recommend" pheromone spray every single day for 2 1/2 months and noticed absolutely NO CHANGES WHATSOEVER in my daily encounters with women!
In fact, the only thing different was that my wallet was now over $100.00 lighter.
As far as the pheromone spray itself, I was disappointed that it came in such a tiny bottle. It was so small (only 1 ounce) that it looked like something for a child. Even though I was careful not to waste it, each bottle only lasted about 3 weeks before I completely ran out.
I was also unhappy with the false claims. When I ordered the pheromone spray, the web site I ordered from said that the cologne was odorless. However, that was obviously a lie. When I got the product, I immediately noticed a slightly strange odor to it. The first day I wore it to work, a couple of co-workers actually asked me "do you smell something weird?" I pretended like I didn't know what they were talking about, but I knew what it was - and it was very embarrassing.
Real pheromones are supposed to be odorless so I don't know what funky stuff was in these bottles - but it sure wasn't pheromones!
So basically, the whole experiment proved to me that this particular pheromone spray does not work.
And since they only offer a lousy 30 day guarantee, I was screwed out of getting a refund. 30 days is way too short of a guarantee period. They must know that their product doesn't work; otherwise, the guarantee period would be a lot longer... right?
A lot of people may find this a surprising conclusion, considering that with all the sites out there touting this product so highly, there must be a hundred people a day getting suckered into buying this worthless product, and then getting shafted on the guarantee once they discover it doesn't work.
But it's true. It had absolutely no noticeable effect on my life or interactions with women. None. Zip. Zilch.
But I remained hopeful (though somewhat dismayed at this point). So I decided to try another brand...
TEST # 2: My Second Pheromone Test - A Well-Known Pheromone Cologne
So next I started looking for another pheromone product to try. This time, I found it from the back of a men's health magazine. You may have heard of this one too - it's a pheromone concentrate called Athena 10x that's supposedly created by a woman named Winnifed Cutler. She's not a real looker if you know what I mean so I have no idea why she chooses to plaster her face all over her ads - bad idea. Anyway...
This product is not a watered-down pheromone spray but rather it's a concentrated liquid that you're supposed to add to your favorite cologne and then dab on like you normally would. This stuff was outrageously expensive at $99.50 plus shipping for just 1 teeny, tiny vial so I just bought one. When I say teeny I mean it was Barbie doll-sized. They said it would last for a month or so.
I bought it, added it to a half bottle of my Drakar Noir cologne as instructed and wore it every day. I hoped that since this stuff was concentrated that it would actually do something for me. At least it didn't smell funky like the other spray I bought before.
Well, to make a long story short, it did NOTHING AT ALL. That's right - Athena let me down big time. What a waste of money. Now I was out another 100 bucks and had nothing to show for it.
At this point, I was really starting to wonder if pheromone sprays and/or pheromone colognes work at all.
After all, I had just tried 2 of the most advertised brands on the market and they both failed miserably. So I asked myself...
If pheromone colognes (and sprays) don't work, then what does work?
That's a very good question. After my 'experiments' with pheromone sprays and colognes, I started searching the internet for other types of pheromone products to try. I didn't want to try any more colognes or sprays, because basically they're all exactly the same.
What I mean by that is that all pheromone sprays are about 99.9% water and alcohol with a miniscule amount of something added with it. I don't really know what that "something" is exactly. It's supposed to be pheromones but I wasn't convinced. And even if it was pheromones in the last one-half of one percent, that didn't seem like enough to me to be effective.
In any case, I was done with pheromone sprays. I wanted to see if I could find a totally different type of product altogether.
But this wasn't as easy as it sounds, because basically colognes or sprays (containing some type of pheromone) are the only pheromone products on the market.
In fact, I was about to give up when I luckily stumbled across a site which sold a different type of pheromone product altogether. I started reading their site, and the more I read, the more I learned and the more sense it all seemed to make...
Basically, what I found was a unique product called a Pheromone Releaser, which is an herbal supplement that supposedly helps to stimulate the production and release of human pheromones.
Apparently, this is a one-of-a-kind type of product. They say that there's nothing else like it, and from what I can tell - they're right. No one else sells something like it that I can find.
The product is called Attract-Rx. According to their site, they claim that each person emits a unique pheromone. Because of this, they claim that colognes and sprays will not work precisely for this reason.
In order for others to respond to pheromones, they need to be your pheromones. Generic, mass-produced pheromones are certainly not unique to your body's chemistry; thus, they will not work.
I have to tell you that this theory makes a lot of sense to me. After all, if you want someone to be attracted to you specifically, then it seems obvious that it should be because of your unique pheromone scent.
Needless to say, I was impressed with what they had to say. It all made perfect sense and it explained why I saw no results with pheromone colognes and sprays. Their information was quite different than anything else I had read on the subject, so I decided to order 3 bottles of their pills and give them a try.
TEST # 3: My Third Pheromone Test - A Pheromone Releaser Supplement
I bought the Attract-Rx pills online and received them a few days later. I took the pills as recommended on the bottle and within 4 days, I began noticing "different" reactions from women! Different in a good way.
First, I got a lot of glances and smiles from women that I came into close contact with, and I even engaged in a little flirting with 2 different women. Best of all, THEY were the ones who initiated the contact. And these women were both very attractive.
I can tell you that as an average-looking guy, this rarely happens to me, so I really think the Attract-Rx had something to do with it.
Over the next few months, I kept taking the pills and I continued to receive more and more attention from women!
It was absolutely AMAZING - I had never experienced anything like it before in my life!
I remember one time in particular. I went out to a bar one night with some of my friends and I literally had women all over me the entire night. My buddies couldn't believe it. Normally, I'm the guy in the group who sits alone and nurses his beer while my friends chat up women. But not this time! That night, I was getting all the attention and it felt incredible. Again, this has never, ever happened to me before so I know it had to be those Attract-Rx pills doing their magic.
My friends were shocked. They were wondering what the heck was going on.
Now you may think that all of this was just a coincidence - and you may be right. But I honestly don't think so. Based on my past experiences with women, I can tell you that this kind of thing has never happened to me before.
In fact, I can tell you that I have NEVER had this level of attention from women before - not just that night but every single day - for those 3 months I used Attract-Rx.
So do I think that Attract-Rx really works?
Yes, I do. Absolutely! To me, there's no other explanation for what I experienced.
I am totally convinced that Attract-Rx works.
Now keep in mind, I'm not a scientist and I have no way of proving how or why it works. And frankly, I don't really care at this point. I am just happy to have found a product that works and a pheromone site that cuts through a lot of the crap and tells it to you straight.
Their theories about why pheromone colognes and sprays don't work MAKES A LOT OF SENSE to me.
Just read over their site and you'll understand what I mean.
If it is true that over time, humans have gradually lost their ability to produce and emit adequate amounts of human pheromones, then it makes perfect sense to correct the problem by boosting your pheromone levels back to where they should be. This seems like a much more logical approach to solving the problem of depleted pheromone levels than simply splashing on some generic pheromones from a bottle.
In any case, this is the conclusion I've reached based upon my own personal research and real-world experiments.
Based on everything I've experienced, I can honestly recommend Attract-Rx as the best pheromone product by a mile. It's the only product I have tried so far that has honestly worked.
UPDATE: A NEW PRODUCT BY THE MAKERS OF ATTRACT-RX
As you can guess, I was so happy with my results from Attract-Rx that I went back to their site to order more. But here's the interesting thing that I thought you would want to know about...
As I was completing the order process on the Attract-Rx website, they asked me if I would like to try a sample bottle of their brand new body spray called Trust Enhancer. They were offering one bottle with any size order for a discounted price. I had never heard of Trust Enhancer before so I went to the Trust Enhancer website to find out exactly what it was.
According to their site, Trust Enhancer is some sort of body spray that contains oxytocin which is a hormone that a lot of clinical research studies have proven increases trust in others when it's smelled. So the idea behind Trust Enhancer is basically that you spray it on your body and when people smell it, they immediately feel like they can trust you. And as the site explains, this is really important for anyone in almost any interaction, including when you're trying to attract others - which makes sense. After all, what woman would want to come up and talk to me if she didn't think she could trust me?
So after reading the Trust Enhancer site, I was intrigued so I ordered the trial bottle.
It sounded like this stuff could not only help me in the dating scene, but it could be very helpful at work and my daily life as well. I couldn't wait to test it and see if it works. I already knew that Attract-Rx was awesome so I was super excited that they had another product that worked with it to make you even more irresistable. I need all the help I can get!
So I bought my Attract-Rx and got the trial bottle of Trust Enhancer with it. A few days later the package arrived safe and sound and so began my Trust Enhancer trial...
TEST # 4: My Trust Enhancer Test - Oxytocin Body Spray
The first bit of good news was that the Trust Enhancer bottle was HUGE so I knew it was going to last a while. In fact, it was twice as big as any pheromone spray bottle I have ever seen.
Both the Attract-Rx and Trust Enhancer websites said that you could use both of the products together at the same time, so that's what I did. I already knew what results to expect with Attract-Rx so I figured that anything better would be the result of using Trust Enhancer. I used both products as recommended. For the Trust Enhancer, I sprayed it 3 times each morning - once on my neck and once on each wrist. After work or in the evening when going out, I'd do another 3 sprays because I usually shower before going out and so the old spray was washed off.
Anyway, the very first day I wore it to work, a woman I had noticed many times before (but never talked to) asked if she could sit across from me in the campus cafeteria, and she then started a conversation with me. She's a little older than me but attractive. Even though I hear that she's married and has children, I honestly think she was flirting with me. We talked about work mostly but I could tell that she was interested in me by her body language and the way she said some things. This encounter was especially unique because she always seemed a bit shy before and never ate with anyone else.
Still, I thought it could just be coincidence. The next few days at work, I kept wearing the Trust Enhancer and as the week went on, I started realizing that almost everyone in the office was a lot chattier with me than ever before. Both the guys and the girls. A lot of the girls (and many of the older ladies) were flirty with me (some were very obvious). And a group of very attractive young women in the office even hung out at my desk for a good 15 minutes one day, giggling at my stupid jokes. I have always referred to them as the 'office hotties'. These girls had never paid me any interest before... but now here they were, hanging out with me and flirting with me! That was really amazing .
But it wasn't just the ladies who seemed to be enjoying my company more. Like I said, I noticed that most of the guys in the office suddenly seemed to treat me differently - in a good way. None of them seemed remotely interested in me sexually of course, but they were including me in their conversations more than ever and hanging out at my desk just talking about the normal stuff like tv shows, movies, music, news and girls. They invited me to join their football betting pool and they started forwarding me stupid emails and pics they got so we could laugh at them together. I was really starting to feel a lot more popular.
I had always gotten along okay with everyone at work before, but I never had the really close friendships and camaraderie that I was starting to experience. It felt great.
By the end of the second week of using Trust Enhancer, my boss called me into his office and said he had a new special project that he wanted me to lead. LEAD? I had never lead a project before in my life. I knew it was a good opportunity so I said sure, but out of curiosity I asked why he chose me. He replied by saying he'd been hearing a lot of good things about me from my co-workers and my immediate supervisor. Really? I thought. I couldn't believe it. That's when I knew that this was all way more than just some coincidence.
At around this same time, I met a beautiful woman at (of all places) my local video store. I noticed her the second she walked in because she was so incredibly hot. She was checking out the new releases when I walked by right behind her, hoping she'd get a great big whiff of my pheromones and Trust Enhancer. Sure enough, I stopped just past her and turned, pretending to look at the dvd selection. She turned her head and looked at me (I could see her out of the corner of my eye). After a moment, she walked right over and reached for a dvd in front of me. She then 'accidentally' brushed against my arm and said, oh, I'm sorry. I looked up at her and she was staring right at me, with a cute, flirty little smile. I smiled back and said no problem. She then asked me if I had ever seen the movie she was now holding. In other words, she was initiating the entire conversation with me!!!
I made some small talk with her about movies and then, feeling quite confident, I told her I'd like to meet up with her sometime for drinks or something, and so I asked her for her phone number. I figured it was a longshot considering how attractive she was, but she immediately agreed - and she even gave me her email address and made me promise to write to her that night!
I have to tell you, this was the most amazing first encounter I've ever had with a girl and I really don't think any of it would have happened if I hadn't been wearing the Trust Enhancer. I really believe that the Trust Enhancer allowed her to feel trusting enough of me to give me her name, number and email.
I could go on but I think you get the point.
And as amazing as all of this is, the most incredible part to me is that...
...this ALL HAPPENED during the FIRST 3 WEEKS I was using Trust Enhancer!
I know that the Attract-Rx helped a lot too, but the results over those 3 weeks went above and beyond what Attract-Rx alone could do.
How do I know?
Well first of all, I got a lot of reaction from guys. Not sexual reactions - just guys wanting to hang out with me more and be my friend. It was like they trusted me and respected me more and wanted to be around me. It's hard to explain but they were confiding in me in a lot of ways - by sharing jokes, stories or other things... the kinds of things they wouldn't share with a stranger or someone they wouldn't trust. That kind of stuff would NEVER happen if I were using Attract-Rx by itself (since it's not about sexual attraction with guys) so I know that the Trust Enhancer is completely responsible for all of that.
Secondly, a lot of my interactions with women went beyond just initial attraction. What I mean is that I connected with a lot of the women in my office on a deeper level - like sharing inside jokes with each other and becoming close friends. In many cases, this was coupled with a lot of flirting between us both, but I've had strictly flirting relationships with women before and this was different because all of the women seemed to feel more connected to me and trusting of me. So I really think the Attract-Rx helped get me the sexual attraction and then the Trust Enhancer kind of sealed the deal in terms of making them really like me and trust me.
In other words, if I had been using Attract-Rx alone, I would've had lots of flirting with women but I don't think I would've had the deeper trust and connection with most of them.
So what's the verdict with Trust Enhancer?
Well, as if you couldn't guess already... I think it's GREAT !
In fact, Trust Enhancer isn't just great - it's UNBELIEVABLE.
I am 100% convinced that it works like a charm. I know there's no scientific way to prove it, but I honestly know that it worked really well for me. I would recommend Trust Enhancer to anyone - and I think it does work great with Attract-Rx like they say.
If you order Attract-Rx, I'd highly, highly, HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you order Trust Enhancer also. They really do work great together and they get very different results.
So anyway, if you want to learn more about Trust Enhancer or if you want to try it, you can go to their website at www.trustenhancer.com.
Through my trial and error, I've learned several things:
Pheromone sprays and pheromone colognes DO NOT work.
Sprays and colognes don't work for a variety of reasons (watered-down, not real pheromones, etc.), but the biggest reason why they ALL FAIL is because they are NOT unique to YOU.
The only product I've found that ACTUALLY IS UNIQUE for each person and ACTUALLY WORKS is Attract-Rx. The science behind their product makes far more sense than those worthless pheromone sprays and colognes.
Finally, I learned that although sexual attraction is very important, having someone's TRUST is equally important when attracting others and taking it to the next level. And a very effective and easy way to build instant trust is with a new product I tested called Trust Enhancer.
In my opinion, if you want to attract others and improve your confidence and inter-personal relationships, then the best thing you can do is to use a combination of Attract-Rx and Trust Enhancer together. I can't say enough good things about them. As I have discovered first-hand, these 2 products work great and are very easy to use.
Now, if you took the time to read this page up to this point, then I would guess that you are very interested in trying a pheromone product of some sort.
There are definitely a lot of choices out there when it comes to pheromone products, but it's really not as complicated as it seems - so don't be overwhelmed by flashy ads or advertising hype.
There are basically only 3 different types of pheromone products:
Colognes and sprays are both basically the same. They are generally fake pheromones that you either splash on (or spray on) your body. They are intended to mimic your body's natural pheromones. Of course, as the Attract-Rx site points out, this does not work, because each person has their own different pheromone chemical composition.
So that just leaves Attract-Rx. Instead of trying to mimic your body's pheromones, Attract-Rx actually helps to boost your body's production and release of your own natural pheromones. As I mentioned before, this makes a lot of sense. And given my amazing results while using this product, I am convinced that it truly does work.
So what's the bottom line?
Forget about colognes and sprays. If you want a pheromone product that will work for you, then Attract-Rx seems to be the only real option. It worked for me and I would be willing to bet that it will work for you too.
Attract-Rx comes with a 75 day, money-back guarantee which is great. Most colognes and sprays have little or no guarantee - that should tell you something right there.
If you want to try Attract-Rx for yourself, you can visit their site at www.attract-rx.com.
And if you really want awesome results, I'd highly recommend that you try Trust Enhancer too so that works really well with Attract-Rx and is even made by the same company so they are meant to be used together. If you want to learn more about Trust Enhancer, you can visit their site at www.trustenhancer.com.
By the way, given the growing interest in human pheromones, I'd like to add more information to this page so that future readers can stay informed. The purpose here is to simply help guys make a smart buying decision when it comes to human pheromone products.
There are a lot of pheromone sites out there which make wild claims about their products. My goal is to cut through all the hype and give consumers the facts about pheromones.
So if you have any comments or suggestions about how to improve this page I'd love to hear from you. You can email me here. I'd especially like to hear from anyone who has tried Attract-Rx, Trust Enhancer or any other type of pheromone product. Send me your comments!
If I can get a few guys to tell me about their experiences, I'll make another page and post your experiences there (anonymously, of course). Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope this information helps in some way.
Thanks and best of luck!
