Human pheromones – Androstenone (5alpha-androst-16-en-3-one)
Androstenone is common in humans and in pigs, which is the source of some of the erroneous “pig pheromone” claims. This pheromone is found in both men and women, is predominantly known of as a male pheromone. This is because it typically creates a dominant, intimidating, aggressive aura. Therefore, pheromone products containing this are likely to project an aggressive alpha impression (either alpha male or female), which might help you to be the centre of attention and be noticed more. Since alpha aggressiveness is often associated with sex and good mate choice, this pheromone can create a sexual vibe and increase sexual tension. To cause members of the opposite sex to become slightly intimidated by you can be attractive, so this pheromone helps in this regard too. Androstenone has also been known to cause people to act more respectfully and polite to the wearer.
Be sure to wear an adequate cover fragrance over or near any androstenone applications, this pheromone has quite a pungent stale sweat/urine smell in high concentrations.
An over dose (OD) of andostenone can cause:
- Bad smelling applications
- Aggression from other members of the same sex
- An aggressive mood in the wearer
- Members of the opposite sex to be overly intimidated, leading to no or even negative reactions.
