Why can’t I smell the typical pheromone smell in one product when I can in another?

Q: Do pheromones have a range?
A: Yes, but only in the same way a cologne has a range. It depends greatly on whether you are indoors, in a hot place, etc., but generally 5′-10′ is a good outer limit estimate. However, the closer you are to your target, the better.
Q: How long does it take pheromones to affect an individual in my presence?
A: The scientific evidence in this area can be misleading. For the record, this states that the actual pheromone-hormone-mood axis takes about 10-15 minutes to work, but a conditioned response can be instantaneous. All you need to know is that the longer you stay around a person, the more likely it is that your pheromones will affect them, but strong reactions can happen very fast.

Q: Will wearing mones cause the mones you produce to decrease?
A: There is no feedback process that controls the amount of pheromones present on your skin (i.e. when there is lots on your skin, your body doesn’t stop producing). However, it has been suggested that detection of sex pheromones causes an individual to react by secreting more of their own sex pheros as a response, for example, to an individual you want to attract. There is also a possibility that the increase in sex hormones in the blood (induced by pheromone exposure) will result in a spike in pheromone production (these two may be one and the same).

Q: Build-up. What is it, is it my problem, how can I cure/prevent it?
A: Build-up is when your skin absorbs so much pheromone content from your applications over a period of time that it starts to adversely affect your reactions.
Buildup could be happening if:

  • You initially had good, consistent reactions but after a period of use you noticed a significant drop off in reactions.
  • After a couple of days of heavy application with minimal results, you see better reactions in the next couple of days when you don’t apply.
  • You primarily use -none products and find day to day reactions to be very inconsistent.
  • You don’t wash application points well at the end of the day.

To combat possible buildup:

  • Scrub application points after a days application (don’t go crazy, perhaps use one of those exfoliating scrubber/sponge things).
  • Take breaks from applying high doses of pheros, so you are making sure you don’ apply heavily everyday.
  • Stop using high doses everyday, and possibly limit “proper” doses to special occasions.
  • Use Perception, although this limits you to a single product.

Q: I’ve just bought my product, what now?
A: First of all, read up. Do a search on the forum and look at the Product Guide here on the PheroLibrary, you can find lot’s of very useful information just doing that (dosage, combo suggestions, etc.). Next, if it’s a scented product, you should consider testing out the scent by applying a small amount to your wrist and smell it every 10 minutes or so. If it’s unscented, doing the same thing can be useful for two reasons:a) You will know if you can smell pheromones (very important if you don’t want to be a walking stink bomb without knowing it)b) You will be able to test if your cologne can cover the pheromone smell well.
After that, you should start thinking about testing. If you have done your research, you should have some idea about doses. The key with experimenting with a product is to be thorough and persistent, and to test in a variety of situations. Certainly don’t just apply some and sit back and wait for a bite. 9/10 hits don’t happen this way, so as a newbie just trying out his product your chances will be very slim. Try walking around, make eye contact, smile, and talk to people to see if you notice anything different. Don’t become disheartened if you don’t see anything, the explanation could be as simple as you missing a signal of interest.
Q: Have you guys tried/what’s your opinion of [insert product name here]?
A: You are not likely to get many responses for this question (unless it’s a product not from Love Scent Pheromone Store, in which case you can give the name but not the web address). You are better off doing a search, the forum is a huge database of information and ALL of the products will have been discussed in the past. Q: What is the “phero buzz” when you smell your pheros that I hear about?
A: It is most likely the result of your body reacting to the abnormally large amounts of pheromones it is being exposed to when you sniff your pheromone product bottle. It doesn’t happen to everyone, or even all the time, but when it does happen it’s almost like a spaced out feeling or an elevation of mood.
Q: I’m a gay male, what should I use?
A: You should wear products that accentuate your manliness, friendliness and approachability. So in other words, you should use the same products that guys use to attract women.
Q: I’m a gay female, what should I use?
A: The same products women use to enhance their attractiveness to men.
Q: As a man, is there anything I can do to attract lesbians?
A: By definition, lesbians like other women. You might have more luck attracting bisexual women by wearing copulins, but that is uncharted territory.
Q: Will pheromones work for Asians?
A: There is no difference between the pheromones of an Asian person from anyone else, except perhaps in the natural levels of some of them (i.e. -none). There may also be a difference between the amount of pheromones produced with Asian people. There are many threads packed with information regarding this issue back on the forum, do a search to find out more.
Q: What do the different pheromones do?
A: We know of only a few pheromones, some of which we know are used in products and over the years we come to understand some of their effects from a combination of anecdotal evidence and research papers. Here is a brief outline of the most common ones:

  • Androstenone (aka -none, Anone): Signals dominance and aggression, quite competitive. -none is often associated with a sexual response, but by no means exclusively.
  • Androstenol (aka -nol, Anol): Signals youth, and sociability, often induces lots of talking, friendliness and comfort. As it often seems to cause conversation, it can be a good ice breaker.
  • Androsterone (aka -rone, Arone): Signals masculinity. It also creates an impression of reliability and protection (i.e. “this is the alpha male who can look after me”).

Q: SOE contains no androstenone, so why would it work out to attract females anyway?
A: SOE contains -nol and -rone. -nol is a unisex pheromone that signals youth and induces chattiness. This means SOE can often be useful for breaking the ice and getting conversations going. The addition of -rone establishes you as masculine which is very attractive to women. People have reported that SOE is good for breaking down personal space barriers and encouraging touching.
Q: Do pheromones really work a long time after I initiate the touch and conversation?
A: Yes. If you make an impression on someone, all of your contact/communication will be slightly enhanced (why they call it an ‘edge’) depending on person/situation. It’s like making a really good first impression. She’ll be more likely to remember you and more likely to talk to you if you run into each other again.
Q: How much should I use? Should I just dump lots on me?
A: Absolutely not! Pheromones are not more effective the more you wear, if nothing else you will be wasting money. You may even notice that you get less reactions if you wear more, because you could be intimidating the women you are trying to attract. Try starting out with small amounts and working up. Look at the Product Guide for ideas for individual products.
Q: Does it work on the people that we meet for the first time without knowing each other before?
A: Yes, this is the time to use pheromones to create a very good first impression.
Q: What about people I know already, will pheromones work on them as well?
A: Yes. For example, many people report female friends getting touchy all of a sudden. It should also be noted that people in marriages and long term relationships have reported an increase in intimacy, interest and sexual activity from their partners.
Q: Should I apply to my skin or my clothes?
A: The general consensus is that applying to skin is better, simply because that is the way nature intended it. It increases dispersal because of the body heat, and some feel that the products harmonize with the skin somewhat. Clothing applications can be more convenient, can last longer and can help avoid buildup, but pheromones have a tendency of staying on clothing even after washing. A common answer to this on the forum is that clothing applications are all well and good, but what about when it’s time for the clothes to come off? 😉
Q: Can I use pheromone products with my own Essential Oils?
A: Absolutely, certain EO’s can even enhance the effects of pheromones (e.g. Sandalwood for men). DrSmellThis’ product Pheros is based on this idea, and he would know.
Q: What about pheromone releasing pills, are they worth a shot?
A: In short, no. The effects are not as strong or noticeable as with regular pheromone products, but the basic concept is good, even if the actual pill based products currently available are over priced and rubbish. Check out the “Raise your natural pheromone levels” section for more information.
Q: Is there any difference between scented and unscented versions apart from the scent?
A: No.
Q: Where can I find more information on my product?
A: A good place to start is here at the pherolibrary, especially the Product Guide, or by doing a search on the Love-Scent forum. After that, you could try testing out your product to find how it works for you.
Q: What is the best pheromone or pheromone product for my situation?
A: Everybody has different body chemistry so no one product works the same for any two people. Your best bet is to read the pheromone reference library and do some reading on the forum before trying anything. Armed with this information, you will have general ideas about what does what in what situation.
Q: Do unscented pheromone products actually have no scent?
A: No. Most pheromones have a musky smell which ranges from pleasant to stinky. -none is one of the worse smelling pheros, while -nol is more tolerable. Incidentally, it is reported that 1/4 of men can not smell -none, so if you are one of these men, be careful about how much you are applying, you may stink and not know it!
Q: How long will the pheromones last on my skin?
A: The short answer is about 8 hours. The long answer is, as usual, somewhat more complicated (see “Does anything happen to pheromones when they are on my skin?”). You may find that the optimum wearing time is much less than 8 hours.
In general, most products will be WORKING for a maximum of 6-8 hours, but:

  • some pheromones will be absorbed into your skin and stay there for longer (buildup)
  • smaller than effective amounts of pheromones will be present on your skin after 8 hours
  • bacterial action will cause some of the pheromones to be changed into other compounds

The optimum working time for the products will be around 4 hours.
Q: Does anything happen to pheromones when they are on my skin? Do bacteria change them into anything else?
A: Yes, but you don’t necessarily have to do anything about it. One thing that happens is that some pheromones get absorbed into you skin, which may or may not be a bad thing (see “Build-up. What is it, is it my problem, how can I cure/prevent it” in this FAQ). Another thing that happens is that bacteria begin to metabolize the pheromones. This means that they will change some of the pheromones on your skin into to something else, i.e. performing a bacterial conversion. Conversions are one of the main reasons for pheromones lasting only a limited time on your skin, and they can also lead to certain applications turning quite stinky. -nol is considered to be most at risk from being converted. Bacterial conversions are actually what makes sweat smell, so you can imagine what applying a product with lots of -nol in a bacteria rich environment must smell like.
The answer is quite simple; if you want to prevent conversions (you might not want to all of the time, but that’s a separate issue) don’t apply pheromones to areas rich in bacteria. These areas are usually the hairier areas, which is where your body naturally releases pheromonal compounds. Don’t let this completely put you off putting pheromones in your pits or crotch area, you just have to be a bit more careful.
Q: Transdermal issues? Absorption? Effects? Mood? Steroid similarity?
A: When you apply a product, a certain amount will be absorbed into the skin. This is because of the carriers used in most of the products. This will reduce the amount of pheromones available on your skin to actually produce hits, and may lead to buildup. However, the amount absorbed isn’t huge and so will not have a big impact on your results, and there are ways of combating buildup. Despite the fact that these compounds are similar to some steroids (androsterone is the only one that is a male sex steroid and has any known direct affect on the body, albeit a small one), there is nothing to worry about because the quantities that could conceivably be transdermally absorbed are so low (consider a person wearing 1mg total a week, and perhaps 10% of that being absorbed), this will obviously have little effect on the body when compared to other androgens which are taken at 25mg per day and upwards.
However, pheromones can affect the balance of hormones in our body through pheromonal pathways (i.e. the nose), but this is a natural affect of exposure to pheromones. Cops is reputed to raise T levels by 150%, and -nol caused a LH spike which in turn causes an increase in testosterone, but these are only temporary, lasting perhaps an hour.
Q: Can copulins be worn by men to attract women?
A: To be honest, we don’t know, and don’t believe anyone who claims otherwise. There are several theories and good threads on the forum (don’t forget the older threads), so take a look there (www.love-scent.com/forum/search.php). Maybe you can try it out for yourself and let us know what you find.
Q: What are the best application points?
A: Generally, anywhere that creates a good rate of dispersal is considered good. These also happen to be where you would normally apply cologne. Your neck and wrists are good, and you should also think about places where your target’s nose might end up, if you see what I mean. For ideas for application points for individual products take a look at the Product Guide
Q: OD – what is it?
A: An OD is when you apply to much of a pheromone or pheromone product. If you stay within the limits described in the product guide you should be ok, but remember to start experimenting with low doses first. However, large doses of pheromones can have a good affect, but you have to be aware that negative reactions will increase as you wear more pheromones.
Some negative reactions include:

  • People avoiding you
  • People being aggressive with you
  • People being intimidated by you. This can make women too scared to flirt with you, not a good thing!

Q: How do these pheromones work with my naturally produced pheromones?
A: Your natural pheromones exist at levels many times lower than the quantities you will regularly be applying with yourproducts. However, if your natural pheromone output is very high (like when you are young), you may find it easier to OD. Q: Should I be mixing my products to get better effects?
A: Not initially. Try using every product on it’s own first; it’s much easier to create a mix if you know what you are mixing, and the best way to gain knowledge is to learn what reactions a product gives in particular situations.
Q: How do I use the Newbie Kit (TE, SPMO)?
A: Click here
Q: How does a person know that you are the one wearing the pheromones?
A: This is the same as asking “how does everyone know it’s me wearing the great cologne”. Hopefully this will shed some light (e.g. the concentration will increase as a person gets closer to the source), but there is an extra twist that is an advantage pheromones have over regular smells – as long as you know how to take advantage of it. Because pheromones are associated with various things, alphaness and approachability are two examples, acting the part the pheromones you are wearing portray you as is very important. If you don’t, you might find that the guy near you acting like an alpha male will get all of the hits.
Q: Why can’t I smell the typical pheromone smell in one product when I can in another?A: Not all pheromones smell the same. Androstenone is typically the one associated with the urinous/BO smell. So, because not all products contain androstenone, or even the same concentration of androstenone, different products will have different “pheromone smells”. Also, androstenone does not smell the same from all manufacturers – Stone Labs’ androstenone is the most “clean” smelling, something to do with the amount of impurities. However, this doesn’t mean that certain manufacturers make better androstenone.
The fragrance of a product will also help to cover up the pheromone smell.

What does “VNO” mean?

Are pheromones just for heterosexuals?

What is the difference between androstenone and androstenol?

What are pheromones?

Pheromones are natural chemical scents the body produces in order to communicate with others nearby. They are well documented in the animal kingdom as the force that controls all social behavior, including mating. In recent years scientists have found that human behavior is also heavily influenced by these invisible airborne chemicals.

Scientists have long known that odors and subliminal scents – or pheromones – influence how animals develop, mate, bond, and nurture their offspring. It has come to be known that humans are no exception. Odors can accelerate puberty, control women’s menstrual cycles, and even influence sexual orientation. They help us tell lovers and family members from strangers and let mothers and infants bond. Odors affect how often we have sex, and with whom. They influence how the brain develops, what we remember, and how we learn. (James Kohl – Researcher)

For more information, please read the “What are pheromones?” article which goes into more detail.
Are your pheromones human or animal?

All of the pheromones and pheromone products listed on this site are human pheromones. The use of “animal” pheromones may have been a problem years ago, but not now. Nowadays the pheromones you find in popular products are made in a laboratory. It is just as easy to make human pheromones as it is to make animal pheromones, so there is not much point in making the wrong ones. Long ago musk perfume used to come exclusively from the animal known as the musk deer. Nowadays we can make that in a lab too, so the animals are safe from slaughter.

Some companies try to scare their customers by telling them about the use of animal pheromones, but it is just propaganda, so they are probably the ones you should worry about. No company uses animal pheromones anymore, but there are companies that will try to scam you or have products with a very lowpheromone content. THAT is what you have to worry about, not animal pheromones.

Do pheromones have a smell? I thought they were scentless.

Anyone who owns a bottle of Primal Instinct or AFA or NPA can tell you that if you get a good nose full of androstenone you will be able to smell it. It is a musky smell that some customers have even described as “BO” or stale sweat . That is what one particular human pheromone (androstenone) smells like. The “scentless” claim just means that pheromones are effective at levels undetectable with our normal smelling system. The mood lifting, friendliness and attention getting reactions still occur if we can’t consciously smell the pheromones because we detect them with a method that is not our normal sense of smell. This method is largely unknown, but it is done by some combination of the vomeronasal organ and the olfactory membranes. So, the real pheromone effect happens subconsciously, and doesn’t require that others get that musky smell. It’s like the subliminal message on self-help tapes. The sound is there and you can hear it, but it slips in underneath other sounds on the tape. The pheromone smell is there, but you don’t really notice it, because of other smells. That is why many people use a good cologne (or naturally scented oil) with unscented pheromone products like Primal Instinct. It blends with the pheromone smell and makes it a little more digestible (approachable). Also, if you are wearing a sexy cologne or perfume, it will wake up the sense of smell of your target, he/she will intentionally make an effort to get a good whiff of you, and then the pheromones go to work. The fragrance works as a carrier for the pheromones.

What does “VNO” mean??

VNO stands for Vomeronasal Organs. They are 2 small sensory organs located in the nose that operate separately from the part of our nose that detect normal smells. The VNO is used by the body to detect some types of pheromones, but is not the exclusive pheromone sensing organ many believe it to be. The membranes of the VNO, along with other receptor cells on the main olfactory membrain, are adapted to detect pheromones at low concentrations and to transmit information to the brain/hypothalamus.

Are pheromones just for heterosexuals?

Pheromones are not just for heterosexuals or any kind of “sexuals” for that matter. Pheromones can be used to make you seem and feel more attractive and youthful to those around you regardless of your goals, sexual or otherwise. Whether you are male or female gay or straight, I am convinced that supplementalPheromones can enrich your social life.

Interestingly, a lot of the human pheromones on the market are unisex, click here for more details.
What is the difference between androstenone and androstenol?

They are both testosterone-linked pheromones and produced in different ratios on the bodies of both men and women. Androstenone is more of an aggressive pheromone than androstenol. Primal Instinct contains only androstenone, and is proud of the fact, while the product “Attraction” and most of the Stone Lab products contain both. Read the Human Pheromones page for more detail on both pheromones.

I read that alcohol destroys pheromones. Is that true?

No, there is no evidence that alcohol destroys pheromones. In fact, alcohol may destroy bacteria that can break pheromones down slowly over time. Pure oil-base pheromone samples and products like Primal Instinct do seem to lose some potency with age, but it is a slow process that takes years and can be avoided to some extent by storing such products away from sunlight and heat, and keeping the cap on tightly.

Bottom line is… there are products that are entirely oil-based (eg: Primal Instinct); products that are entirely alcohol-base (eg: the Edge); and products that contain both alcohol and oil (eg: the Stone Lab products). All three have their fans for various reasons. Rumors that one or the other type is useless have probably been created by marketing propaganda.
About the products

Why are there so many products, what is the difference?

How do I choose?

What is good for beginners?

Attracting members of the same sex

What is the difference between manufacturers?

Is PI your best product?

How long do they last?

What is all this I hear about mixing two or more products together?

Why are there so many products, what is the difference?

The many different types of pheromones cater for the many and varied needs of the pheromone customer. The majority of pheromone users are wanting to increase their presence and the amount of attention they get, and thus the majority of pheromone products contain adrostenone. There are also products that aim to increase your approachability.

These days there are a lot of sites selling the same products, but you must be careful to choose one that has a good reputation. Love Scent has the largest user-base on the net (which is why this site – which is built by users – even exists!) and so is a very safe bet.

For more information about the various products read the the Product Guide.
How do I choose?

If you have the time and want to make a truly educated decision, I would read as much as you can of the material located in the Pheromone Information Library. A good place to start is the Product Guide and the Newbie FAQ.

What is good for beginners?

There is usually a “Beginner’s Special” or “Duo/Combo” of some sort available at the top of the Love-Scent.com home page that offers 1-2 of the leading products at a discount price and often with great supporting services/products and special guarantee for new folks. For instructions on how to use your Beginner’s Kit click here. The sample gel packs from Love Scent are also a good place to start (there are free samples with every order on a wednesday).

Attracting members of the same sex

There is now some scientific evidence that seems to indicate that gay men produce pheromones that are quite different from those produced by heterosexual males (soon to be published article by James V. Kohl). Even though there are a few pheromone products on the market that were created for the gay community, I doubt that they are using any of this promising new technology. So, for the time being gay men and lesbians have only products designed for heterosexuals to choose from. Keeping in mind that pheromones are a bit like clothing or make up in that they can create certain style or image changes including making us appear and feel more masculine or feminine, I think that the current pheromone product selection may well be of use to some gays and lesbians who want to adjust their masculinity/femininity/approachability in one way or the other. Furthermore there are a few products that have been embraced by both men and women recently. The only pheromone that gay men should really stay away from is androsterone, as this is a very “non-gay” male pheromone.

What is the difference between manufacturers?

Know your manufacturer! Manufacturers tend to produce products of similar genre/effectiveness/price range.

The top manufacturers are:

LaCroy Chemical

Stone Research Lab

Primal Instinct Inc BDC Concepts
Is Primal Instinct your best product?

Primal clearly has a high concentration of androstenone, but there are other factors that sometimes make other products a better choice. Every product sold at love-scent.com has its loyal followers. Actually, the price of Primal is due to the extremely high pheromone content. You don’t need that much at any one time. The manufacturer recommends only 2 drops per application, so a 10ml bottle lasts a LONG time. It is not any more effective than say NPA (male formula), which includes the same TYPE of pheromone in it. It just lasts a very long time, since you only need to use 2 drops per application.

How long do they last?

Pheromones hold up much longer than normal cologne, but if you apply them to the body, quite a bit is washed away or broken down in the first 4-6 hours. Actual breakdown time depends VERY much on body heat, sweating, and personal body chemistry; so in the winter on your wrists the scent might last much longer, and if it gets onto your clothing, it can last for days or weeks! The Edge can be applied to clothing directly and will last for weeks or until washed out.

What is all this I hear about mixing two or more products together?

Take a look at the Pheromone Forum and you will quickly notice that experienced pheromone users often mix two or more products together in order to achieve synergistic effects greater than can be had with a single product. This type of mixing requires some skill and practice to perform successfully, but guidance can be found in the Pheromone Forum and the Pheromone Cookbook.

How do I make the most of pheromones?

Remember that pheromones are tools. It takes a little practice to learn to work with them.

Men: Be the “good guy”! Pheromones give you an aura of power, but that can be scary for shy women if you look grumpy or like a “lone wolf”. Always look for opportunities to be helpful and supportive of women. It is also very important to be a friendly, interesting, entertaining guy. Pheromones will enhance these good attributes, but if they aren’t there in the first place, there is nothing to enhance.

Women: Be approachable! If you suffer from the “ice maiden” syndrome, pheromones are only going to push you further out of reach, even to guys you would love to get to know. You don’t necessarily have to make the first move, but be ready to come up with a warm smile and maybe even a cheerful “hello” if you happen to make eye contact with a guy.

Everybody: Practice makes perfect. Don’t wait for Mr. or Ms. perfect to come along before you start acting like a friendly sensual human being. Start now. Be friendly; be helpful; be funny. Don’t be like the crazy old man shouting at his wood stove: “Damn it ! I’ll give you some wood as soon as you give me some heat!” People love to be loved. People love to be with folks who look like they are having a good time. Women in particular are often looking for someone whose life is headed in a positive direction. Chemistry is only half the picture you give to folks. Humans are more complex/social/spiritual than other animals. It takes more than a spray of pheromones to get where you are heading.

How and where do I apply pheromones?

For starters, try all the normal perfume spots: wrists, behind the ears, throat, and chest. Next level: inside of elbows and knees if exposed. Women report success with ankles and thighs. Requiring more caution but reportedly very effective for pheromones in the right amounts are: arm pits, hair and pubis. Unscented sprays are often applied to clothing collars and cuffs for long term use. Watch out for over-application and staining of fine material.

Can I mix phero’s with my own cologne or perfume?

Yes, mixing pheromones with cologne or perfume is a great way to use pheromones. We usually recommend you use an unscented pheromone to mix with your current cologne or perfume. Cologne fragrances are generally very complex and adding one scented product to another can lead to unexpected results. Be careful or leave that to the pros.

How do I mix and use pheromones?

Pheromone Colognes (dab-on oils)** (Passion Pheromone Attractant, Passion Copulin Concentrate, and Pheromol Factor) These products can be dabbed on like normal oil-base colognes. Let your nose be your guide for the amount. You may notice the initial fragrance transforming into the more musky residualpheromone smell underneath as time passes.

Scented Concentrates (scented Edge, scented Primal Instinct, Alter Ego, scented Attraction) These are extremely concentrated products that have a simple organic fragrance added to help mask the underlying musky smell of the pheromones, which on their own and in large amounts can be offensive. As with the colognes, your nose can be your guide to the optimal application amount but more caution is advised than with the above colognes.

Unscented Concentrates (unscented Edge, unscented Primal Instinct, unscented Attraction and Andro 4.2) These products are extremely concentrated and present the possibility of “pheromone OD” (overdose), as they contain no added fragrance to mask the portion of the pheromone “scent” which can be consciously detected with the nose. In extreme cases this smell has been compared to “body odor”, so some caution is advised. Since about 25% of US males are unable to detect the smell of their own predominant pheromone (androstenone) and presumably another portion are somewhat impaired in that ability, the nose is not always a dependable guide in determining how much is too much. Furthermore, the environment, setting and personal preferences of the intended target are all going to play a major role in determining the optimal amount so a LOT of experimentation is recommended. There is often a fine line between “Damn! this guy makes me horny!” and “Damn! this dude needs a shower!” and the old adage of “One man’s (or woman’s) medicine is another’s poison” was never more appropriate than in the use of pheromones. A good cologne is also highly recommended with these products. Dosage? Start with one spray (Edge and Attraction) or 1-2 drops (Primal) and work your way up. Especially when used with a good cologne, larger amounts of these products have been found to be very effective depending on the environment. Just be careful; experiment a lot and don’t allow the occasional “OD disaster” to throw you off the path to success.

Additive Products (New Pheromone Additive NPAAndrostenone Fragrance Additive AFA) These are extremely concentrated formulae which are designed to be added to your own cologne. You should receive a separate instruction sheet with these products. Please refer to that for details on mixing. A pocket sized atomizer available at love-scent.com or your local pharmacy is very handy for mixing up small batches and keeping them ready for use “in the field.” Plastic (no needle) syringes, also available at your local pharmacy may prove useful for extracting controlled amounts from the Additive bottles. New Pheromone Additivehas a plastic dropper top which many customers find useful, but it can also be easily removed for pouring or to allow the insertion of a glass eye-dropper or measuring syringe.

Super Primal Essential Oils These oils come in a handy dropper bottle and are reputed to contain some androstenol, but their primary use is to add fragrance to the powerful unscented (though often “stinky”) pheromone products like Edge, Andro 4.2, and Primal Instinct. For this task they are very well suited. If you have a spare empty atomizer fill it half way with Edge or Andro and squirt in a dropper-full of SP e-oil. Give it a shake and see what you get. Carefully add more, testing as you go along, until you get something that smells good after it has been applied and dried for a few minutes. You can also trying adding the SP e-oil directly into the Edge or Andro bottle, if you think you have a good idea what ratio you are looking for. With the oil-base Primal Instinct, you may want to try the reverse, adding the Primal directly into the SP e-oil bottle. An empty roll-top bottle is handy for quick application and safe packing in pocket or purse.

Un-rated pheromone colognes (Yes, Lure, IR colognes, APC) These are pheromone containing colognes for which we have no clear data on the pheromonecontent, or as is the case with APC, we have the data, but it is not that impressive. Nevertheless, customers keep coming back for them all even as stand-alone products; they smell great; and they can be effectively spiked with potent additive products like NPA or AFA. APC is still a major force as a fragrance base for mixing products.

The Kit (Pheromone chemistry sets) These are only for seasoned phero-gurus. Some basic information comes with the set, but they are very new and mainly for experimental purposes. The first few owners of them doubtlessly know more about them already than we do. Check the forum for the latest news.

Is it better to apply to the skin or to clothing?

Both skin and clothing applications are effective in their own way. Due to body heat pheromones applied to the skin evaporate very fast putting them into “effect” very quickly. This may be what you want in some cases, but it also means the active ingredients get used up very quickly. In addition, pheromonesapplied to the skin also get washed away by sweat and broken down by bacteria on the skin. Unscented spray products like Edge are easily applied to clothing. Just keep in mind that the “scent” will be on there for a LONG time, and may take several washings to come off completely. You may want to be careful of delicate fabric too.

What kind of expectations can I have?

You can expect a lot from high quality concentrated pheromone products like Primal Instinct, AFA, SOE and The Edge etc. It just takes a little while to get good at using them. Some people might see results instantly, but the majority of people will get better results over time. Pheromones are more of a tool than a magic wand. You have to learn to work with them. What you have there is a top of the line tennis racket. It takes practice to make the most of it.

Tips for men: First of all keep in mind what a high-end andro product does. It makes you more attractive in a male sort of a way, more manly, studly etc. That is a good thing for attracting most women, but keep in mind that generally you have to look friendly. You have to temper the stud thing with Mr. helpful or you are going to have a hard time breaking the ice with most women. Primal makes you seem more powerful but I can tell you from experience that women have to get the feeling that you are going to use that power to protect them and not control or exploit them. Weak and helpful is a loser, but tough and mean also loses. If you walk into a convenience store looking like Clint Eastwood, you aren’t going to get anybody approaching you.

Tips for women: Be mysterious, be seductive but be approachable. Fear is your worst enemy, both in yourself and in the guys you would like to meet. Help make the “ice” easily broken; be generous with your warm smile and “hello”; then just let the chemistry take its course.

I have tried using various amount and product, but I did not get any response, what is wrong, or what can I do?

A. When in doubt, cut back on the pheromones; start light and work up slowly; just one spray of strong spray products like the Edge is often plenty. Less is often more and your own personal body chemistry dictates what works for you; not the type and amount of pheros that works so well for your roommate.

B. Beware of the “BO” effect. Androstenone-heavy products like Primal and Edge have a musky though elusive smell, which many women depending on culture, upbringing, relationship status and “time of the month” perceive as dirty or invasive. As many as 25% of all US males can not detect this smell at all, so be careful! Most women can smell it very well. If you are having trouble, try one small spray (or dab) of such products on each wrist and apply some cologne over the top. Then rub your wrists together. I do that during the day for business situations, and it seems to work well.

C. Next, it is VERY important to look approachable/safe. Men in particular have to watch out for the CEE (Clint Eastwood Effect) with the androstenone-heavy products. Make sure you don’t look scary or like a “lone wolf”. If you have a history of that problem, this type of product is only going to intensify the situation. Be friendly and helpful without putting pressure on people, and never be afraid to smile at someone. It is a very powerful force.

D. Once you have the stage set for romance, there is still the matter of simply “rolling the dice”. It doesn’t always come up 7, but the pheros will improve your odds. Just relax and enjoy the ride. Everyone wants to be friends with someone who looks like he/she is having a good time. So, “don’t worry, be happy.”

E. Don’t just sit back and wait for the positive reactions to fall in your lap, go and mingle! Pheromones enhance, they won’t create something out of nothing.

You gotta get up every morning with a smile on your face, and show the world all the love in your heart!

Then people are gonna treat you better,

You’re gonna find, yes you will:

That you’re beautiful…. as you feel!

How do I buy an international Money Order in US dollars?

Decide on the products you want and the shipping method you want. Go to your nearest Post Office or Bank and buy a International Money Order for that amount in US dollars. The Bank or Post will calculate the exchange rate and charge you in your local currency. In the US money orders are available at a great variety of business locations.

How do you ship, and how long does it take?

All our orders are packed and shipped promptly 5 days a week Monday through Friday except national holidays. Orders placed online or via our toll-free order line by 9 A.M. Mountain Time (11 AM EST) on any business day will be shipped that same day. Otherwise they are shipped the next day.

International orders are marked ³cologne² for customs declaration.

What appears on my credit card bill?

Orders placed online will appear on your credit card statement as: “Love Scent Pheromone Store.” Orders placed by telephone will normally also appear as Love Scent Pheromone Store, BUT if that is a problem, you can request that your order be charged via our back up account at the call center. Tell the operator that you would rather NOT have “Love Scent Pheromone Store” appear on your credit card statement. She will then make a note of this on your order, and your statement will read “Mountain West Communication” or “MWC”.

I’m worried about getting ripped off

What you have to watch out for is websites that just take your money and send you bootleg versions of popular products, or don’t send you any product at all. That is the big problem at the moment. Be careful. There are a number of sites that look just like ours, but have slightly different addresses. Similar to Love Scent Pheromone Store but with some small change to the address.

I want to order but I’m afraid to give out my email address

We never send any junk mail or sell our addresses. When you place an order with Love-Scent.com, we use the email address you give us to send you an immediate invoice confirming that the transaction has gone through and another message shortly after your order is shipped. This second e-mail includes info about your order and free support services we offer, but unless you have signed up for one of our 2 mailing lists, that is the last you will hear from us. We value your trust and won’t do anything to annoy you (intentionally anyway ;-)). We are getting LOTS of new and interesting products and hope you will come back!

In general, you may also want to sign up for one of the many free disposable e-mail address (Yahoo or Hotmail for example). You can use these addresses more freely on the internet and change them if you start getting spammed by unscrupulous companies.

Is there a money back guarantee?

Yes, we have a very good money back guarantee: If you try one of our products out and you don’t notice anything out of the ordinary happening to yourself and/or those around you, you can send it back and get your money back. We just ask that you:

A. Give the product a good testing over a period of at least 2 weeks. It often takes that long to figure out how to use pheromones properly and notice results.

B. Return the product within 90 days of purchase.

C. Include a brief note with the returned item, explaining what the problem was.

Send the product back to:

Love Scent Pheromone Store

PO Box 402

Hotchkiss, CO 81419

We will refund the amount you sent to us initially (purchase price and shipping). You only pay to send the bottle back to us.

NOTE: Some products and sets of products are offered under our special “Newbie Guarantee”. This guarantee is even stronger than our normal guarantee. Products purchased under the Newbie guarantee can be returned for any reason (eg: “I don’t like the smell”), and you can keep any free items that were included with your order.

My country is not listed in your shopping cart. How do I place an order?

We have had a lot of trouble with orders to certain countries, which we have since taken off the online order list of countries. Fraudulent credit cards is one problem, but also the post offices and often the customs officials as well are unreliable and either delay the packages, lose them or just straight out steal them. I am very sorry if this situation affects you. We can ship the product to you, but we would have to be paid in advance by bank wire transfer or you can order by mail with a certified international money order.

If you pay $30. extra for Express Mail shipping you will probably get your order quite quickly but we cannot take any responsibility if it gets lost or stolen in transit.

If you want to order by money order, please have a look at the mail order form in the Love Scent Store.

You can print that page out and use it for your order form.

The address and all the other info you need are there as well

If you would like to pay by way of bank to bank wire transfer write us for details.

Do you sell in bulk (wholesale)? Can I become a distributor?

There are a number of ways you can partner with Love-Scent.com:

A. Website affiliate program: You simply run our banner on your website and you get 30-35% of whatever sales are generated by the traffic you send us (see link on our home page for details)

B. Drop ship: You run your own online store and send us the orders. We ship them for you and charge you for the product and shipping at the end of the month.

C. Reseller/distributor: We sell you the product directly, and you sell it however you like (small mixed orders).

D. Wholesale: Buy certain products in bulk (large numbers) and get them at very low prices.
