Sometimes, as the day progresses, I smell a scent emanating from my body. No, it is not stinky Body Odor.

I think this scent actually smells really good, and I believe it is pheromones.

Sometimes when I smell this scent on me, I notice women taking deep inhalations of my scent, and then getting a sex crazed look on their face. No, I am not making this up.

On the flip side, sometimes I will get a whiff of female pheromones and it turns me into a dog, and I growl in liking of this scent. hehe.

Yeah, the reason I write this is because I am reeking of pheromones right now. I feel like if I went out into public, I might get jumped by women. tee hee.

I'm having a good day so far.

Anyway, what are your thoughts and experiences on pheromones?

No perfume. It is all natural. It's the only way to do it.

I don't like to use to cologne or god forbid pheromone perfume.

Funny I was talking to my wife last night about this we were at a gas station and she said she liked the smell of gasoline, which I do also. I have noticed that most if not all my previous girlfriends did also, including the smell of a skunk which I do not find as offensive as most suggest and were in abundance where I used to live. Just to get it clear neither me or my ex/present girlfriends/wife smell this way but there is something to this.
They sell raw pheromones for use to attract the opposite sex. My friend had made a secret formula in college based on this theory and studied its effect for his thesis the results for some of the samples were too great to ignore and he tested for months on hundreds of student volunteers.
This is a field that has been studied but I think the probability for misuse is in what one would call a grey area.

Nah me neither

I know the body produce pheromones, but more I don't know. I know it stimulates sex lust in animals and humans (if the studies are correct).

Isn't it sweat which has those pheromones? Correct me if I'm wrong please.

I love the smell of gasoline too.
I just don't know why. I have only met one who doesn't like the smell. It's weird.

Phermones are fantastic. Covering them up with perfumes is very bad idea.

Often times, before going out I would take my mandatory shower, usually using rustic soap imported from the middle east that is made from pure olive oil and nothing else added to it. They might add a bit of something tho cuz it has a nice, but not perfumy smell.

Then I'd spend some time doing a bit of a workout to get a glow on and maybe even take in a little porn.

Anyway, I swear that whenever I followed that routine people would quickly gather around me and start up conversations, give lots of eye contact and otherwise express a lot of "interest". Seeing as I am a pretty shy guy, that is not a normal experience for me if I just showered and nothing else.

Working up a bit of clean sweat definitely brings out the phermones, and they do their job. Trust me. I don't always welcome that kind of attention tho, being old and whatnot, so I don't usually bother anymore to be honest. It makes it simpler.

Actually human pheromones don't really play a major role in attractiveness. LINK Pheromones in perfume can help increase your confidence but wont get you all the ladies/men. I don't have a link to this article since its copyrighted material from my social psychology lecture, but we learned that women can tell a persons sex by smell more than men and that's about it.

Human pheromones are more of a myth, than fact. We do have them but they are less important than actual physical attractiveness. what your smelling is probably your natural scent, everyone has one.

Did your friend publish the results of his investigations? Are you able to import/link, whatever?

Maybe its a guy thing then because I can tell you, from personal experience that it is no myth. Smell can be a turn on or a turn off depending of course on the circumstance, but it is a powerful factor either way; especially when u r up close when visuals are less in play. Eyes closed even?

There is nothing sexier than the smell of another human being in that situation.
Like I said. Probably a guy thing but I find it shocking that women may not be enjoying that aspect in the same way. Interesting.

Very true body scent does play a role but, in the article, our visual stimulation is actually stronger. One way to fake attraction is by matching if one is similar to us we tend to like them more so by using similar body language we can subconsciously make one like us more. Another rumored way to better attract a mate is again through our body language if you hold your self confidant it shows our potential suitor that we are strong. Body language is subtly more appealing than scent. Since our vision is more developed then our scent.

Id dated a lot.. but never really" liked" other people's smell. Then I met my husband and even when we'd hike or play ball way back inthe day he smelled good. Not nasty sweat funk.. but I mean sweat and just his natural man smell.. I married that one.

There is something to be said for the scent of another human and who you are attracted to long term IMO. After all of these years I can probably pick him out of a crowd if you blindfolded me. I guess everyone has a different scent, but they all smell similar to me except for him. Im made fun of in the family about being a scent hound in a previous life though.. I have a sensitive sniffer.. so much so I cant hardly stand to go to the mall or be in crowds. Basically people stink and when theyre in crowds its not pleasant. Having an older teen daughter who bathes in perfume.... thats also not pleasant.

I agree with all the body language stuff for sure. Our visual senses tune in to all kinds of things subliminally that we aren't aware of, but that we nevertheless have automatic responses to. Our "body brain" bypasses the thinking brain and acts according to what the eyes see. It was important in survival, recognizing risks, and for survival of the species too -- finding a good mate. Having taken lots of psych courses back when I do tend to pay attention to body language cues in social situations still.

While sight and sound are effective at distance, smell, and touch obviously, are probably more of a factor close up. Then again, I have known people who's perfume enters the room before they do.

I'm actually a studying psychologist and in a behavior class and we discussed this topic. Basically our proff said don't buy into the pheromone perfumes since everyone's pheromone is different. And we don't use pheromone's. That doesn't mean don't smell good bad smell is a deterrent.

I my self loooove the smell of spice on a man. But that's just because I like things spicy..

Exactly, the prof is right. Don't buy some artificial concoction, probably derived from some pig substance or assembled in a lab. Our bodies each make their own naturally. It is probably as distinct as your fingerprint for that matter. You want to be sure the attraction you feel really belongs to the guy in front of you, and visa versa.

The whole point of going thru that rigamarole I described above was to stimulate my own phermones, and let them shine, masked neither by perfumes nor dirt (thus the shower). Because everything got washed off in the shower you have to do something to get a fresh "supply" going. Nowadays I don't even use deodorant (
) anymore unless I know I am going to be facing something, or someone
that is going to give me grief.

I do think that when you are young things are different and perfumes seem to have a place. I don't necessarily object to them all, because when they interact well with your own body, then they can be great, just not all the time.
