    Default Some observations with NPA

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    Whenever I

    use NPA with cologne, it seems to neutralize the scent and I can't smell too much of anything on me. When using my

    cologne alone, I can smell it on me to a much larger extent (particularly Rochas).

    In using NPA with Pheros

    however, something quite interesting happens. Hours after covering the NPA with Pheros, I smell a mild "funky" odor.

    It's not an unpleasant "funk" but kind of musky without the pungent quality.

    I've experienced this too.

    Commercial scents (mostly chemicals) behave very differently from natural scents (Pheros).

    Your cologne

    (chemical) and pheromones (synthetic) are probably creating some sort of a chemical wash, especially if the

    fragrance is weak to begin with, or doesn't complement the NPA. Matching -mones with a cologne is a real art form

    if you want to get it just right. My goal is to get a symbiosis between the cover scent and the -mone "stink", which

    (I think) should not be completely masked. The good news is that the -mones work on a different level than just

    scent.

    Natural scents (like Pheros) have an advantage. Instead of isolating single (synthetic) chemical scent

    notes, they contain all the complexity of the hundreds of constituents contained in natural scents. When blended,

    these scents offer a depth and complexity that touches the deeper places of memory and emotion.

    Going back to

    your point, its my understanding that DST designed "Pheros" to particularly work with and complement pheromones,

    musk being one of the many ingredients.

    I've used Pheros to cover A7/A1/SoE/TE/AE with great success. It

    works with everything, and the "funk" you talked about is always present, and I've found that women and men both

    like it, and are attracted to it almost unconsciously. The "funk" is simply a very complex fragrance which matures

    on the medium of your skin and compounded by whatever -mone you're wearing.

    Its the subliminally expressed

    ancient funk of human attraction when men and women meet. The only problem is, we've become conditioned to

    chemicals, and shallowness in general.

    That is because the pheromones

    combine with the natural substances and musks in Pheros, your bodily chemistry and bacteria, etc., to create

    something different than the sum of its parts. I'm fairly certain that new pheromones are created on your skin

    through this process as well. Certain substances attract certain strains of bacteria to your body, and you want to

    attract the healthiest kind that are naturally found on the human body; rather than the foreign, opportunistic kind,

    if that makes any sense.

    Moreover, the pheromones in NPA act as another fixative to preserve the musk notes

    already in Pheros. Conversely, the natural musks in Pheros act as fixatives to preserve pheromones on

    your body. (In perfuming you learn that certain fixatives work best with certain things; often things closely

    related to each other.)

    Remember, the natural musks on a human body are the primary forces that have attracted

    romance throughout human history. So in no way do you ever want to smell less musky, if you want more romance. The

    trick is just to make your natural musk as pleasant as possible. If you have a little "funk" bleeding through, that

    is what potentially drives someone's sexuality over the edge.

    The Dr and I were writing at the

    same time, I'm glad that he explained things better than I did.

    Ran across this

    interesting tidbit.

    "about supposed "anti-smells". One common pair is the skunk + tomato, another lesser know

    pair is cinnamon + corpse. The former involves dogs, skunks, and tomato juice. Scent "cancellation" may or may not

    be due to some sort of catalyzed breakdown of skunk "musk" by tomato acid. The latter involves removing the stench

    of rotting corpses of people that died without anyone knowing (that is, until the guy downstairs complains). A

    "light spray" on the walls does the job"
