The science of chemical attraction is admittedly in its infancy, and the exact details of pheromone application depend on the personal preference and particular natural body chemistry of the user, but I will try to lay down a few general guidelines. A few of the products come with their own specific instructions. Be sure to read the list of application points at the end of this sheet, and check our forum for the latest news and a wealth of vital pheromone information at www.love-scent.com/forum/.
**Pheromone Colognes (dab-on oils)** (Alter Ego, 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 residual pheromone smell underneath as time passes.
**Scented Concentrates** (Scented Edge, Scented Primal, 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, and Unscented Alpha-7) These products are extremely concentrated and present the possibility of “pheromone OD” (over dose), 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) 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) 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 Additive has 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.
**Wipes** (Edge Wipes for Men and Women) Wipes are handy ways to apply and carry pheromones on the go. Quite a bit of area can be covered with a single wipe, and quick saturation of a large area of skin without “perfume OD” is the forte of the wipes. Simply wipe them over exposed skin: neck, throat, chest, arms, legs etc., using up as much of the moisture in the wipe as possible. I have heard from female customers who tuck the freshly used wipe into their bra.
**Unrated pheromone colognes** (IR colognes, APC) These are pheromone containing colognes for which we have no clear data on the pheromone content, 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. Like they say about the prices at expensive restaurants: “If you have to ask, it’s not for you.” More seriously, 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.
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.
