    Default Is your appreciation of a scent an indicator of efficacy?

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    Here's what I mean by that. I tried Chikara last night, and don't think I had any

    appreciable hits from it. Although I understand that one test does not a conclusion make, I don't think I'll be

    using the c7 again, mainly because I don't like the smell at all. Very musky, and cloyingly sweet - not me at all.

    I kept smelling it throughout the night, and while it didn't ruin my evening or anything, it definitely wasn't

    something that grew on me.

    So today, I put on some AE. Much better. Spicy, but with an underlying sweetness,

    not so much to balance it out, but round it out. It reminds me a lot of Quorum, one of my favorite non-mone

    fragrances. I went out to a couple of stores I knew would be packed with xmas shoppers. Lingered in some areas,

    etc., just to see if anything would happen (I had items to buy, too, I had real purpose to the errands anyway), but

    no appreciable hits. Although, the application was only one dab on each wrist, because that's all I had (gelpack

    seems to have leaked in the mail). Still though, I'd much rather try the AE again than the C7, simply because I

    figure if I like myself better in the fragrance, that would probably help with the attitude anyway.

    So this got

    me to thinking - I've seen a lot of threads that say "it gets me laid all the time, plus I really love the smell of

    the fragrance!", whereas I haven't seen too many that say "It smell like a mixture of cat pee and dog feces, but

    it's so effective I just push on through the smell anyway, and hold my nose in the sack..." Does anyone think

    there is anything to this? If you "like" how a product smells on you, do you think that could be an indicator as to

    how effectively it will mingle with your body chemistry?

    Possibly indirectly. The

    effectiveness of mones has no relationship to the scent or lack of scent. But if you believe the scent stinks

    you'll be less self confident and that will make a difference. If you think it smells great, your increased

    confidence will also show and have a positive effect.

    smells on you, do you think that could be an indicator as to how effectively it will mingle with your body

    chemistry?

    We all have different body chemistries which make pheromones work more or less

    effectively on different products and scents better or worse on different people.

    However, the scent is

    still independent of the effectiveness of the mones, and I don't think there is a strong correlation between

    whether you like the scent and whether the product works. Obviously people use products they like the scent of more

    often, so hit posts will feature them. Moreover, if someone is going to complain about no hits, more likely they

    will attack other things they do not like about the product, ie scent.

    I'd up the C7 amount, btw. Also, you

    might want to contrast it with npa/te. That may bring out its results.

    "...I don't think there

    is a strong correlation between whether you like the scent and whether the product works."
    Hmm, some

    scents make me want to hurl, and hurling tends to override any enhancing factors of the 'mones added or within.

    Perception (scent component only) and Devin come to mind when I think of tossing cookies. To me, a bad scent is like

    a bad haircut or being overweight. I'm too self conscious and distracted to respond well to all the babes falling

    at my feet.

    Incidentally, I like the smell of Chikara, but never tried cat pee now that I think of it

    (obviously lots of folks on this forum have). Heck, I bet kitty wee has plenty of 'mones within...

    I really

    like the smell of L'eau D'Issey and feel like a stud when so adorned, with or without 'mones added. This feeling

    and resulting action are at least partly due to women stiffing and complimenting me.

    DST may want to add something,

    this has something to do with enhancing positive points of your personal scent.

    Do other people like on you

    what you think smells the best, and visa versa?

    I was in a department store the

    other day browsing the fragrance counters...I was looking for something new as I hadn't bought anything new in

    awhile. I got talked into Dolce & Gabana by the lady working the counter. She said I would have to fight the girls

    off wearing this stuff. So on an impulse buy I went for it. It wasn't until I got it home that I realized I

    wasn't all that crazy about the scent. Maybe I can learn to develop a taste for it. It will be interesting to see

    the reactions I get, if any, even though I dont exactly like the scent.

    You have to consider your audience

    (i.e. yourself or others?).

    To wit: I hated the smell of Le Male when I wore it, but compliments are

    compliments.

    I do not particularly like

    the smell of Chikara, but do like the results.

    This has been a mixed bag for me.

    Usually if I wear something that I really like (lots of base notes, of course ) I get good responses.



    There have been a couple of notable flops - Rebellion comes immediately to mind. I love the stuff, it's hard to

    find (I think it was discontinued) and I bought three bottles. I have not received a single "you smell good" wearing

    it. 'Course that was between girlfriends...

    When I wear Cool Water, which I don't particularly care for, I

    always get good response.

    At the moment, I'm into Pi, which I like, and I get "you smell yummy" comments

    (it's the vanilla-like benzoin base note) frequently.

    I like Pi too, and I think it

    was rated highly by women in a magazine somewhere.

    what if it's not really the

    scent of chikara that he doesn't like per se, but the scent of his body chemistry with the mones in chikara, and

    then by mere association the scent of chikara also? could that be?
