Pheromones: Fact or Fiction? Research on Pheromones

liquid alchemy labs aqua vitaeI recently came across an advertisement online while I was searching for “attractive colognes” for men.

It was a cologne, but it was advertised as something called a “pheromone cologne”, which was specifically engineered to attract women. I was sceptical as a researcher usually is, but rather intrigued by the concept.

Pheromones are produced by animals for all sorts of reasons. In the animal kingdom, they can be used for finding food, leaving scent trails for other members to follow, sniffing out predators, finding prey, and even getting the attention of the opposite sex.

As humans, we also produce pheromones which is a widely studied phenomenon. The effects, for example of a pheromone called “androstadienone” is documented to produce comforting effects on women, and have effects on the hypothalamus in women’s brains, which results in arousal.

“Androstenone” is also an arousing pheromone which can be perceived by women as threatening, but attractive/arousing. There are a multitude of pheromones that humans excrete naturally that creates a unique “pheromone profile” of every individual.

That means that information such as physical fitness, age, gender, and overall health can be perceived by someone simply by the way they smell.

And because this stuff actually has scientific proof, I decided to take the plunge and invest in some products.

I tried some by a Hawaiian pheromone company called “Liquid Alchemy Labs” and read the reviews on PheromonePro. It seemed like a legitimate website and not just geared towards hyping up crap products – especially ones that are overt lies such as pherlure, pheromax and others which “guarantee” results for men.

The interesting part about these pheromone colognes is that you really have a huge amount of choice when it comes to what you want to project. I mentioned something called a “pheromone profile” just before, and it seems like they are specifically engineered to create an entirely new vibe about you.

I bought several of the products, including Nude Alpha, Aqua Vitae, Bad Wolf, and SXD-9. The last 2 weren’t reviewed on the website, but i decided to give them a shot.

Once my package arrived, I decided to try Aqua Vitae by Liquid Alchemy Labs and see if these pheromone things really work. I read the Aqua Vitae review on Phertest’s website and was immediately intrigued – it is the highest rated product there at the moment.

I used the bulb dropper and let 3 drops of oily, deliciously scented drops onto my neck, which I then smeared around on my fingers. I had read that this may be a bit much, but hell I just wanted to see what would happen.

As I got dressed for work, a sense of very calm, cool, confidence came over me. I suddenly felt the urge to really attack my day, and be in a happy, in charge, carefree mood… and suddenly had the belief that I was really the “top dog” at my sales company.

Interestingly, I noticed more people coming to me with dumb questions – coworkers who know better just felt like talking to me, and in a way, seemed like they looked up to me and wanted my guidance.

Aqua Vitae was described as having “VIP” or celebrity kind of persona, but I I was still sceptical. Maybe I was just having a good day, or maybe it was a placebo effect.

However, it all became very clear to me while I was intereacting with customers. You see, I sell computers for a living. Exploring weird niche stuff on the internet has been a recent hobby and that’s why I started this website.

Here’s what happened.

As I interacted with customers throughout the day, I noticed that they were thinking more of me than just the typical salesman. A lot of times, when it comes to selling high end gear like computers and electronics, people want the best money can buy (within their budget), and always seem to get slightly turned off when you mention something that might be leagues better, but slightly out of their range.

However, that day, many of my customers were willing to give a little with their budgets in order to . Rather than being skeptical of me and thinking of me as a greedy salesman, many prospects saw me as someone who could be trusted, and in turn ended up with my business. They saw me as a “celebrity” – someone looked up to by my boss, coworkers, friends, and family. I saw this because of the way I was treated rather than blatant in my face effects (if you’re into sales, you learn a lot about body language).

The next stop was to test how well this stuff actually generated attraction, as it is geared for that purpose. I stopped by for a drink with a fellow single coworker at a bar nearby. It was evening time, and it was a Friday night so we hit the work showers and got out of our “tax collector” uniforms and put on some business casual stuff for the ladies.

It was roughly 7pm, and groups of men and women were arriving so we got a table near the center of the bar. As women walked past us to get to the bar, I was absolutely STUNNED at how many women were giving me very strong eye contact while walking over. I knew my breath was pretty smelly, so I didn’t start conversations with them until we had a bite to eat. After that, I decided to open women to see how well they would react to the “pheromoned up” version of me.

I was either on a roll, or the pheromones were really taking effect. Many women even seemed to act in a way that told me I was too good for them. I rode this attitude the whole way through to closing several dates for the weekend and coming week.

As crazy as all this sounds, it’s really amazing that these things work… who knew?

I will be back to write up on some more pheromone products, but thank you for showing me how to use them and advising me on my purchases.
