    Question Silly question: Same phero, different name...

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    I was wondering about something.
    Is it possible that one pheromone bottle can be marketed

    under two different ans separate names ?

    For instance, I notice 2 products that looks quite the same: Alter-Ego

    and Arouse-Rx...

    Just as store brand

    groceries are often name brand products with a private or generic label on them, I don't see why someone couldn't

    contract with a pheromone manufacturer to bottle a batch with their private label too.

    So it's possible, but

    I couldn't tell you if it's true or not in this case.

    Alter-ego is packaged in a

    container readily available from the leading manufacturer of chemical glassware. It's highly likely the bottle was

    made by the same factory - more tests need to be done to determine if the same product is inside both

    containers.

    Luckily we are all inborn with an instrument readily available and somewhat sensitive enough to

    distinguish any differences between two pheromone products: a nose.

    ethical, but you never know

    Paparazzi,

    In the specific case

    of Alter Ego and Arouse-RX, the similarities are actually NOT that striking.
    Arouse-RX comes in what appears to be

    a 10mL amber Boston Round-type bottle with a simple plastic cap, while Alter Ego is packaged in a cylindrical amber

    vial that holds 2 Drams (7.5mL) with an eyedropper-type cap.
    The stated formulae of the two products also differ,

    so I doubt that there is any attempt to specifically masquerade as AE on the part of the producers of

    Arouse-RX.
    There was a fairly recent thread in which the claims of Arouse-RX's content were debated. That should

    be easy to find by way of a search.

    That being said, there ARE a large number of knock-offs and imposters of the

    established products out there, so one must choose cautiously. In some cases the knock-offs are actually

    manufactured by the producer of the product being imitated, so even though you may be getting a product of SIMILAR

    quality, you're not assured of getting the same product.
    Some of the private-labeled imposters don't contain the

    same concentrations of pheromones as the flagship brand, and what is worse, they often don't bother to mention

    that.

    Caveat Emptor!

    Oscar

    Yo, copyinng is done all the time.

    How many copies are their of Coke or Advil? Sometimes the copies are just as good as the real thing.

    However,

    I have no expience with Arouse, never heard of it. However, AE is no copy. It is the real McCoy.

    Beam me up

    Scotty.
