Human Pheromones back to homepage

Potentially, human pheromones could be made up of many different types of compounds. We know about fatty acid chains and hormone derived compounds (populating the list below), but proteins and small amino acid chains also have the potential to have some kind of pheromonal action, although these are more likely to be transmitted by touch as they are not very volatile (do not evaporate easily).

Pheromone products have so far only dealt with hormone derived pheromones and one specific group of fatty acid pheromones. Very few of them are only found in either men or women; in most cases most of them are present but in different ratios.

Clicking on a type if pheromone will take you to a page explaining more about each one, including ideas about what it does to the pheromone products that contain that particular pheromone.

Some of the lesser known pheromones have no information pages because of insufficient data.

Estratetraenol Comments Off on Estratetraenol

Human pheromones – Estratetraenol (estra-1,3,5(10),16-tetraen-3-ol)

This is supposedly the female equivalent to androstadienone (A1), but it’s availability is even less than that of androstadienone (A1). Like A1, it stimulates the VNO. It may also have some mood elevating properties in men.

Pheromone products that contain Estratetraenol:

Pheromax – PMAX (women’s version)

Androstadienone Comments Off on Androstadienone

Human pheromones – Androstadienone (delta 4,16-androstadien-3-one)

This is a pheromone that is widely documented to have a very specific effect on the brain activity of women. One particular study has shown that it affects attention and social cognition areas of the brain. It is also one of the only pheromones that has been shown to stimulate the VNO, and so has been described as a vomeropherin.

Androstadienone, more commonly known as A1, is a very popular pheromone within the pheromone community. One of it’s more remarkable effects is that it can elevate a woman’s mood, and even alleviate PMS stress! It has been known to increase intimacy and comfort, and can also increase caring feelings. It has been called the “love pheromone” because of the nature of the feelings and reactions it induces in women, and also because of it’s usefulness in more cozy relationship situations.

There are no known over dose effects for Androstadienone (A1), but it does convert to androstenone over time on the skin so an OD risk can be created this way.

Copulins Comments Off on Copulins

Human pheromones – Copulins

Copulins are an exclusively female group of pheromones. There are secreted into the vagina at the optimum ratios during ovulation with the aim of encouraging men to desire to copulate. This group of pheromones primarily consists of fatty acids that would serve little to no function on there own, but in combination they have been shown to increase testosterone levels in men by 150% (Astrid Jutte study). This increase in testosterone may cause feelings of arousal in men if a woman is present. It is said that once a man smells Copulins on a woman she is deemed to be more attractive.

Typical reactions from Copulins will be consistent with male indications of interest.

Pheromones products that contain Copulins are:

Essence of Woman – EW

Primal Instinct – PI/w (women’s version)

Passion Copulin Concentrate – PCC

Perfect 10 – P10 (women’s version)

Scent of Eros – SOE/w (women’s version)

Pheromax – PMAX (women’s version)

Androsterone Comments Off on Androsterone

Human pheromones – Androsterone

Androsterone is a human only pheromone. It’s use as a pheromone is born out of the fact that males with a higher ratio of Androsterone to Etiocholanone are more masculine. Homosexual males have lower ratios of Androsterone to Etiocholanone. Thus, androsterone makes the wearer appear to be more masculine and/or dominant, but without the aggression of androstenone. This pheromone also creates an aura of safety, protection and reliability normally associated with a more peaceful alpha male. Androsterone also provides the respect of androstenone without the possible negative connotations of the aggressive nature of androstenone.

When worn by women, androsterone has been reported to have mood elevating effects.

Through experimentation, some users have reported that androsterone can enhance or boost the message that other pheromones in a product or pheromone mix are signaling.

There are no known over dose effects for androsterone.

Pheromone products that contain androsterone:

Scent of Eros – SOE (men’s version)

Alter Ego – AE (men’s and women’s versions)

Androstenone Comments Off on Androstenone

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:

  • Headaches
  • 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.

Pheromone products that contain Androstenone:

Primal Instinct – PI (men’s version)

Passion Pheromone Attractant – PPA (men’s version)

New Pheromone Additive – NPA (men’s and women’s versions)

Alter Ego – AE (men’s and women’s versions)


Pheromax – PMAX (men’s version)


Androstenol Comments Off on Androstenol

Human pheromones – Androstenol

There are now two types of this compound that are used in pheromone products, the alpha and beta isomers, each producing slightly different effects. The alpha and beta have nothing to do with the pheromone projecting an alpha aura. Both seem to cause chattiness and friendliness.

alpha-Androstenol (5alpha-androst-16-en-3-ol)

The alpha isomer of Androstenol creates a friendly approachably impression, and can make the wearer seem less intimidating and more approachable. It seems to be more of a neurotic chatty pheromone than the beta isomer, touching more on empathy and romantic feelings. Androstenol also creates an aura of youth and health, which can help to create an impression of reproductive fitness, which is attractive.

The primary reported response to Androstenol or Androstenol containing products has been an increase in chattiness and friendliness from both sexes, but as mentioned above it can increase sexual attractiveness as well. It has been referred to as an “ice-breaker” pheromone.

An over dose (OD) of Androstenol can cause:

  • Headaches
  • A feeling akin to a kind of drunken tiredness
  • An impression of weakness. In other words, making you appear a lot less alpha

Pheromone products that contain alpha-androstenol:

Scent of Eros – SOE (men’s version)


Alter Ego – AE (men’s and women’s versions)

Perfect 10 – (men’s and women’s versions)




This pheromone is only available as a chemistry set pheromone for experimentation, but it may be in some products as one of the undisclosed “secret ingredients”.

Not much is known about this pheromone because of it’s limited availability, but some users report that it is less playful than the alpha isomer, but that it is good for inducing conversations on a larger social scale. It seems as though it’s primary use is to enhance alpha-androstenol, adding extra amounts of friendliness and comfort.

It is not yet known what an OD of beta-androstenol causes.

The only product that contains beta-androstenol is the beta-androstenol chemistry set bottle
