This is quite a long first post, so
there is an encapsulated question in the very last paragraph.
Pheromones from Bruce a couple of times over the years (PI, SOE, Realm, Edge). I've had mixed results but not used
them much because I really can't hack the smell of most of them. My favourite was SOE as it seemed very 'gentle'
and talkative, but I always felt it needed something else.
receiving the last newsletter I decided to take a look at the site again as I hadn't visited in over a year. I read
the threads on Chikara and Perception which both sounded like well engineered products, so I ordered both. I read
that Chikara was a sociable product with a great smell, whereas Perception could have a tendancy of DIHL if used
They both arrived today so I eagerly tried them one squirt of
each on an arm. What I found was the complete opposite of what I was expecting. The Chikara on my skin has that
familiar stinky pee smell that just gets to my head after a while. I'd say must have over dosed but getting less
than one spray from the bottle is quite an art, and scrubbing in the shower just doesn't seem to diminish it much.
If however I spray it on a piece of tissue the smell is very much different. I'd
say on tissue it smells very faintly like a dirty dog but it's not nearly as offensive or strong as when it's on
my skin (x500% worse on skin at least). Does this mean that for my particular natural pheromone make up I should
just avoid this one of these pheromones or could the batch be different to others? I can't detect much perfume in
it at all other that a faint but sharp top note (not that my sense of smell is full spectrum
I don't know if it's relevent but I'm a 35y/o Male, and find it
very difficult to build rapport off the cuff. In contrast, when people are exposed to me for a duration then I get
on with most people like a house on fire. I don't mean I'm shy or lost for words, it's just that when I am in the
presence of new people the shutters tend to go down instantly, like I have a 'go away' growl about me. I don't
feel that they dislike me at all, but more that they don't trust me, or sometimes they even become a little
nervous. If I am around them for hours or even days then that issue seems to dissappear even if we've never spoken.
This goes for men or women, I don't believe it is confidence or conversational issue. Back to
Okay, about Perception; I was expecting this to be the one that had the
cat pee smell from the descriptions I'd read, but this one to me is far more faint and more agreeable. I didn't
put the perfume mask on top or anywhere near it yet as I wanted to get a feel for the base product. I think I could
wear this one without being very self conscious of the incredible rheek! of the other, or the
I've read much of the FAQ and Newbie thread, and I'm beginning to
think that there are some mones that I don't need any extra of at all (possibly even over producing already?), and
that some I do need to 'lighten up' the first impression and balance the natural mones out. Newbie thread suggests
that would be something like NOL. Does that sound reasonable? My favourite smell in the whole wide world is a good
Sandalwood - that makes me feel on top of the world and I can't get enough. I also like Jasmine and Ylang Ylang.
After reading DrSmellThis' thread about Amouage I saw the ingredients and ordered the 8x sampler pack as that might
contain something to point me in the right direction.
Okay, enough rambling, I
should wrap this up with shortened question:
Are there (generally speaking)
certain body types that respond significantly better to some mones that others? Is there a way of determining this
(a Laboratory that can do a sweat sample pheromone profile perhaps?). I'm going to be spending several days reading
up on previous threads to see if I can find a way to pick the correct pheromones to get the balance, but if anybody
has any pointers to speed that up it would be much
writing this I've just found the WAGG product which sounds like it might help. Is that an avenue worth

To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

In short, no surprise that
people respond differently to different products. Everyone has a different natural pheromone secretion and
different personality. In the market, there tends to be products that are labeled to work well for x or y
personality, and others that really don't have a label as the results seem to vary from person to person (Ex: AE
and Perception). On a side note, I think perception has taken the prize for the DIHL contest haha . Anyway, you
can speculate about what might work well for you, but there really is only one way to find out (as your
experiencing). It takes a little bit of time and a good eye. You'll be on your way!
I'm beginnig to
think what I actually need is a big dose of friendly. This weekend I'll try 1 maybe 2 squirts of perception with
mask, and leave the Chikara out of the equation for now. I'll report back anything of note.
Try washing before you apply
your C7 (no offense...), sounds like you have a lot of bacteria on your skin for C7 to smell like cat piss.

You are right on
the money there. I had been doing some house renovations all day and had quite a sweat through the day, probably
with all kinds of bacteria on the skin. After showering the smell was much more bearable.
Guess I'll just have
to start showering more than once a year, whether I need it or not
BTW, I'm joking
about the pepper spray part
I can still smell both the
perception and the Chakira even now from that original single dose (+20 hours and counting).
I'm about to go
out in to the garden to work and it's pretty warm today, so I expect it'll flare up shortly like last evening.
I'll see if the shower will finally get rid of the remainder as I want to dose from a level field before I the
Btw, I forgot to mention in my previous post on interaction in the pub that the mongril dog of one of
the bar tenders came into the pub and started clawing my leg for attention (honest!) which kinda hurt as its claws
need clipping. I've noticed this dog probably twice a month for the last 4 years which has pretty much been
indifferent to me throughout. I wasn't sure whether to mention this, but at least the dog is actually female

Update for day 2:
tried 1 spray (and I emphasize just 1!) of Perception with nothing other than lots of very neutral 'sports type'
deoderant (right guard).
I started to walk up to the smokey bar that I mentioned yesterday and a neighbour woman
(35y/o?) who's face I know but have never spoken too since I moved here (3 1/2 years ago) said hello to me from
across the street. Initially I carried on walking as I couldn't recognize her (it was dark) but continued talking.
When I realized I recognized her face I went over to her and chatted. As I got closer I noticed her pull back and
diminish eye contact. She smiled a lot but it was clear she was being sociable. It wasn't a bad interaction as it
lasted maybe 10 mins and I was ready to leave as soon as I got a signal, but the change from being across the road
to within say 8ft of her was distinct.
Carrying along the road I ran into a buddy who is much younger than me
(he 18, me 35). Conversation was much better than usual and sensed it would carry for a long time until another guy
arrived in a car who I know. I took the opportunity to get a lift to the shop with him and drop me off at the pub
since he would be there shortly anyhow and I got him a beer in (it was getting near closing time).
I walked over
to the bar next to a 35y/o woman that has been hitting on me for years that I have no interest in. I thought this
would be a good place to start but when I opened conversation I got the same false smile as the woman in the street
earlier, then she got her drink from the bar where she had been sat an joined another table.
Another woman that
I've known for years (the mother of a girl I know, perhaps 45y/o?) who every week I usually have a cocky/funny game
with came over too me (which is normal), but everything I said I again got that false smile then look away gesture
(normally she would be in bulk laughing with lots of excessive touching).
It's at this point that I started
to get paranoid, and I was aware that I could stil smell this single spray on me. Then a young good looking girl
(21y/o) behind the bar started to stare at me. I've seen her in there for perhaps 8 or 10 months but she has never
acknowledged me other than being distantly friendly when serving me. Soon she was hanging around and singing,
dancing and mirroring me. I knew she had a date for the night as she was eager to leave and get changed, but every
time she passed me she would drag past me, bang into me, or run her hand over me each time she left the bar area).
There was plenty of room for her to avoid me by several feet if she wanted to. My now paranoid state prevented me
from investing in this as I'd had so many negative experiences through the night however.
Summary: It seems
that in women, everything has been opposed. People I don't know make connection (at least initially), and those
that I know well are put off. My feeling is that I'd like to try the same at about 1/4 of the dose, but getting
less than one squirt is tough to do. Perhaps at some point I'll try it in clothing only rather than skin.
Tomorrow night: Chikara (full mones but lack of scent version) only. I'll report back then.
It's an odd world and
supplemental pheromones only add to it! hah. In the scientific world, studies hold credibility and repeated studies
hold 10 times more. From a science standpoint, I would love to see you try to minimize variables and try again.
Attempt to mimic the environment, dosage, clothing, sense of attitude and personality for the evening and see if the
same people are reacting similarly. Anyway, on a side note, your part about the one bartender (21 y/o) showing
attention after blowing you off in the past reminds me of a story. I was experimenting with some dosages I had
(custom mix of existing products rather than throwing together something with the chemicals). Anyway, like I
mentioned earlier, I was trying to minimize variables by going to the same club, same night, etc etc. I stayed over
by the DJ booth for the most of the night socializing then proceeded to go to the front of the club to the main bar.
I was with a friend talking to some random girl and having a good conversation. Then, out of no where, the
bartender (a very attractive 35 yr old woman who would always give me no attention or otherwise bad looks) throws a
piece of ice at my head. I turn over and motion to her "What??". She motions to me to come over so I excuse myself
from the conversation and go up to her and say whats up? She is all smiles looking at me for about 3 or 4 seconds
and says, "Can I buy you a shot". Now me, wanting to give her a taste of her own medicine, responded, "Sure you
cock block". She started laughing quite a bit and poored the shot. She pushed it across the bar and stared. I
said, "I guess you forgot to poor yourself one?". And she said, oh yeah...and grabbed a shot and filled up. We had
a shot and I ran off. Since then, she has been extremely cheerful whenever I show up at the place. There is not
one doubt that my experiment had worked and her signs were attributed to my pheromone additives. Just thought I
would share that one!

I've had a couple of similar experiences with barmaids when flirting with other women. IOriginally Posted by BDC_Concepts
think there's some kind of unconscious social-proof or jealousy thing kicks in when they see that other women see
value in you. More startling is that I've had it happen when chatting to women I would not consider very
attractive at all when the barmaid is very attractive. Just the fact that there is a woman having fun with you
seems to be enough. So...If you can create a pheromone mix that attracts *any* kind of woman and makes them laugh,
then go stand near the bar you can get your woman (....dabs amyl nitrate on wrists).
Chikara: Used 2 sprays
last night (one on skin, one on shirt). Nothing spectacular to report. People were friendly enough, but nothing
that couldn't pass as normal.
Tonight I'll try 1 spray perception, 2 sprays Chikara, then report back
1x Perception and 2x Chikara
Limited opportunities to mix with people today, so I headed out to the local pub as a fall back. There weren't
many people in, and a friend who was supposed to meet me there didn't show for other reasons.
I was stood alone
for a while then a guy who is what I would call an acquaintance only walked by from around the corner and nodded
acknowlegement, then after about four paces stopped, turned around, and asked if I wanted a drink. He then invited
me over to the table with his buddies. I felt an incredible sense of acceptance from these guys that is not normal
for me. There really is something to this.
The barmaid women I mentioned a few posts back was in there, I think
she's decided I'm okay now and kind of lingers her hand on mine when she gives me change which is quite funny.
She also mixes her behaviour up between ignoring me, then looking back at me to see if I noticed. It's just play
but interesting just the same.
Need to get out to town and mix it up with a larger crowd. So far I like the
1xPerception and 2x Chikara best, as I can't smell it at all when I have a cover cologne on, yet I know that there
is a reasonable amount on.
Next opportunity/update probably won't be until the weekend.
