    Talking Pheros Natural Cologne for Men: Public Release!

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    First, thanks to everyone who experimented with Pheros and provided feedback during the special

    introductory release, which was for forum members only! I'm happy for those who found it useful and enjoyble!

    Now Bruce and I are excited to be releasing Pheros to the general public! Pheros is made,

    bottled and packaged by hand.

    The first idea with Pheros was to make available numerous ingredients

    important for the science of attraction that folks might not be able to obtain elsewhere, due to price and/or

    availablility. Many of these ingredients are rare, expensive (some moreso than gold!) and precious. These are the

    natural pheromonal substances and aphrodisiacs from the ancient traditions of perfuming. Plus, I added very small

    amounts of almost all the available Love-Scent laboratory pheromones, as well as several fragrant analog pheromones

    from the excessively secretive field of perfume chemistry (synthesized from natural substances). The inclusion of

    these different kinds of ingredients makes the effect more human, and well-rounded. It also deliberately aims to

    work through regular smell, as opposed to the VNO. (That is not to say that nothing in Pheros triggers the

    VNO.)

    Second, I wanted to make a very nice, natural woody/musky cologne for men! Pheros is an alternative

    to synthetic perfumes, which make up the vast majority of commercially available scents. As it turns out,

    many women have enjoyed it as well, and some of it's most ardent users have been female. There is no reason for

    this not to be the case. No natural fragrant substance is truly sex-specific, as far as we know.

    This is a

    broad based approach, sort of similar to natural medicine as compared to standard health care. I felt someone should

    do something like this, since there are hundreds of potential pheromones and we have had access to relatively few of

    them here. So these 150 or so ingredients were compounded into a natural cologne for men, a drop-by drop process

    which took 15 months for the beta version. The resulting cologne smells woody, musky and spicy, and can be used for

    the smell; the active ingredients; or both. Some (like me) also use it for the "stress-reducing" wearer effects. A

    lot of aromatherapy principles also went into the creation of Pheros.

    Through ten years of pheromone

    use, perfuming practice, and exposure to many aphrodisiac substances not offered at Love-Scent, I came to believe

    that combining natural with synthetic laboratory approaches was superior to either approach used

    alone. This product, especially when combined with other products, enables you to enjoy the best of both worlds.

    Pheros was made with the love-scent community in mind, after a few years' experience as a member in the

    forum, to supplement and complete people's use of the synthetic pheromones products offered here at Love Scent.



    I suppose you could call this the first official release, since the other one was technically a beta. This new

    release of Pheros will be limited to 500 bottles in three batches, as I finish hand-bottling them. This is

    the second and largest of the three releases of this product, which cannot be re-manufactured! The fragrance has

    matured a bit since the beta release. The updated version is basically the same, but smells a bit mellower, woodier

    and muskier, and contains significantly more of the core, active ingredients.

    Pheros has a marbled,

    "carmel-swirl ice-cream" appearance. This is normal, and has to do with being an unfiltered, natural product without

    chemical emulsifiers or solvents (just natural ethanol). For example, I added whole valerian root; so there is a bit

    of root residue. So please shake 3-4 times before using. Also, please store away from strong heat or direct

    sunlight, as natural fragrant substances are vulnerable to heat and light.

    I'll be happy to answer any

    questions you all have about the product, and address all feedback as best I can.

    Pheros is available

    here:

    How long should a bottle of

    Pheros keep if kept in ideal conditions?

    Good question. The rule of

    thumb for perfumes is a year, but I don't know specifically in the case of Pheros, since it's a new,

    natural, one time product. I do know that staying with the storage recommendations will help.

    Very cool product

    DST! Getting back to the natural roots and the basics of fragrance engineering will surely prove a good approach to

    pheromone products.

    Congratulations on your official release and I look forward to getting a

    bottle!

    I'm eagerly awaiting my bottle

    since I missed out on the first beta offering...

    There was a lot of good buzz on the beta version so I'm

    glad that its being offered again...

    Were really lucky to have so many innovative minds within the Pheromone

    Community creating new products...

    First Chikara, then Perception & now P H E R O S all being released

    within a few months of each other.

    Will Pheros blend well with

    scented pheromone products like Chikara? I am eager to try out a bottle but the only thing that is holding me back

    is how well it will mix with my now normal pheromone rotation. Nevertheless, the blend sounds quite intoxicating,

    in a good way of course.

    BaseB, after you posted that I

    tried the combo. My opinion was that the combo is nice, and that Pheros underneath the Chikara was better

    than the other way around. The two products should enhance each other chemically. Pheros was designed with

    mixing in mind. NPA and Edge/sandalwood have been the favorite mixers so far, but there are lots of possible good

    scenarios. A1 would probably be good to wear with it, as would Perception.

    I've tried Pheros

    with Chikara and thought they blended well too.

    Wink The (lack of) rules for applying "Pheros"

    Folks will be able to get the most out of Pheros if they know how it is a

    unique type of product.

    For example, it is intended to be like a "hygiene enhancer", or "human body musk

    enhancer", and not just a cologne. Pheros is different from other perfumes or colognes in that, in addition

    to traditional perfume application points, it can be applied to "taboo" areas of the body, such as armpits and even

    crotches, to achieve different natural biochemical interaction effects.

    This is a unique product

    that way, because its natural ingredients are designed to blend with and enhance one's body chemistry, not compete

    with it or disguise it. (Synthetic body sprays like Axe don't do this either.) In general, using a little bit

    spread around the body takes advantage of these alternate qualities.

    Pheros also avoids heavy citrus or

    "green" notes that can sour when applied to sweaty areas. It instead contains more woods, spices, and natural musks

    which are similar to and blend with our natural body smells.

    May people with fairly clean, healthy pores should

    even be able to use it in place of deodorant after a shower. It will add back a little of the natural

    animalistic scent lost from the shower! The idea is to smell clean and human but never overly sanitary (like the

    back of an ambulance ). It can also be used over a little sandalwood, amber or patchouli, for those who already

    use essential oils in place of deodorants.

    These uses are by design. So experiment away! Of course,

    Pheros is also well and good to use just like any other cologne.

    I appreciate the words of support, Bobby. We're all working toward the same

    goal here, "social empowerment", whether or not we make pheromones. It's cool to see different people (such as

    yourself) participating with their ideas and new products.

    Default RE: The Strength of Pheros/Dilution methods for the new Pheros

    Pheros, Enhanced Version
    Product

    Facts:

    To those wondered about increased strength with the new Pheros, yes it is stronger, in

    two ways!

    The amount of concentrate per bottle has increased a full 25%. (Yes, that means 25% less of the

    product will be available in the long term; but artistic considerations won out.) Plus, the concentrate itself is

    stronger, as I added significantly more core pheromonal substances since the beta phase, one of which was new (yet

    another rich musky substance!).

    So you are getting well over 25% more product for the same price, as compared

    to the beta version. Overall, the scent matured and mellowed a little bit, however, so it shouldn't smell

    hugely stronger -- just fuller, bigger, deeper, and more present.

    If some of you want to make your own

    Pheros After Shave, all you need is filtered water and an extra container to dilute it 2:1 or 3:1! I do this

    myself, as I love to wear it on my face for the mood and stress reduction benefits.

    Pheros affictionados

    should also be aware that this official release version has 2ml less alcohol per 18ml bottle than the beta!

    This refinement enhances the smell, optimizes dissolution of the ingredients, and should reduce transdermal

    absorption of the active ingredients when worn on the skin. (Thanks for the idea, Chemo! Just tryin' to keep up

    with the times a little!).

    I don't shave daily due to skin irritation. I have a beard and shave my neck once

    a week, unless I'm going out where I want to be more presentable. (I work with a bunch of guys as a technician, so

    I don't care about being presentable to them.) Due to the irritation, I've cut down on aftershaves and have

    started using skin lotion instead. One thing I do with Pheros is take a drop or two and mix it with unscented

    lotion, which I apply after shaving and spread whatever I have left over the face and/or upper body.

    this stuff is strong. i just

    recieved pheros today. i put it on before the gym. i left the gym with a soaking wet tshirt so you know i sweated

    alot, but i could still smell the 2 dabs i put on after the gym. took a shower using a exfoliating bar soap and i

    can still faintly smell pheros i think. it has kind of a grown up smell to it, but hey i'll still use it if i get

    results. there wasn't that many women at the gym today so i didn't bother to pay attention to other people around

    me.
