    Not dead.

    During recovery from a ghastly CVA, have continued to use small amounts of pheros dabbed with my favorite colognes, usually 1/2 drop on each side of the head.

    Since I've been able...

    Great thread! Here’s some thoughts about the types and extent of phero influence (my opinions only, informed

    Covering NPA/TE, and random application musings

    To my nose the sweeter and citrusy colognes don’t do well with TE/NPA, and produce a sickly

    aroma.

    Fougères seem to cover the NPA/TE family very well.

    Cool Water absolutely masks TE/NPA....

    that's why they call it a controversy

    No guarantees - but still valuable

    The

    thing about pheros for me is to understand the limits of what they can do for you.
