Pheromone colognes and perfumes, if you’ve ever heard of them have gotten a terrible rap over the years. From the “Gilroy” patch from the Ocean’s movie, to being sold in sleazy magazines and internet commercials.
Marketers, and other sales people often describe them as the “secret ingredient” to attracting the male or female of your dreams.
However, most people simply dismiss them as snake oil (for good reason) – after all, why would anyone believe in something that effectively describes itself as a modern day love potion? In recent years, there has been a a small, but growing community of people who test and report on their results of these special “pheromone enhanced” colognes.
But in case you’re not exactly hip to what I’m talking about here, here’s a quick explanation:
Pheromones are natural scents that animals (yes, humans too – in sweat), which are uses to find food, hunt prey, and attract mates. In the modern world, humans may have little use for such things, and there is still strongly debatable evidence that leans towards, or against their supposed effects on other people. In the research, scientists describe something called the “vomeronasal organ” (or Jacobson’s Organ), which is connected to the amygdala (or “seat of emotions”). This organ is supposedly responsible for processing pheromone signals, as it is directly connected to the brain. However, this has mainly been observed in animals that rely heavily on their sense of smell. The source of the debate comes from whether this is inactive, due to the human version of the VNO appearing significantly atrophied, or shaped vastly different from animals. Nevertheless, there is also evidence that flies in the face of this discovery, and many reports suggest that pheromones do appear to affect brain activity. This is especially apparent in scenarios where women rated men as more “attractive” than women who were not exposed to the pheromone androstadienone. But enough about science.
According to expert Phero Joe, pheromones are far from magic – but they can be powerful tools to boost your success in dating, work, and even social life.
“Pheromones aren’t just magic potions like the ads would have you believe. There are dozens of different pheromones that we have tested through the years, and many of them have shown to be able to influence how people act around you in subtle ways. For example, a pheromone called androstenol can make people feel very “chatty” around you. Androsterone, typically produced by older men can give off an air of wisdom and trustworthiness. Sure, it can be hard to wrap your mind around how they work. But once you see them in action, its hard to not continue using them. They simply give you the “upper hand” in whatever situation you’re in. Whether its to make women perceive you as someone with high social value, a little extra sexiness, or being more sociable… they can definitely give you that. But what they’re not going to do is walk up to the men or women you want, and start a conversation. Some men tend to rely on them too much and then consider them as garbage. But we wouldn’t have such a thriving community around them if they weren’t effective!”
At the end of the day, pheromones aren’t the “secret ingredient” to success after all – but they could be great tools to make the “aspiring gentlemen” greater
As Phero Joe mentioned, pheromone colognes and perfumes aren’t going to do the actual hard part for you. They won’t call a woman you’ve met, arrange a date, and make them fall in love – that’s all on you.
They are simply meant to be used as tools to help create the ideal social scenarios, in order for you to succeed.
In fact, after taking a look at some of the resources available at House Of Pheromones, it appears there are categories of products that lean towards one major goal. For attracting men or women, for appearing to have “high social status”, or to be more sociable and create “chemistry” more easily with others. Unlike other vendors that promise people lining up at your door to date you, there is a wide variety of products that could be useful in a range of scenarios. And if you’re interested, feel free to get in touch with Joe and he’ll happily point you the right direction. Thank you for reading.
