Pheromone Human - Does Pherlure Work ?
Quote:Does Pherlure really work? I've read mixed reviews concerning Pherlure cologne and wanted to try it first hand to see if it lived up to the bold claims. Unfortunately, most pheromone products don't work. Read on as I explain what happened when I tried Pherlure cologne and whether Pherlure really works. Smile

First Time With Pherlure
I was pleasantly surprised that Pherlure has an awesome scent. The bottle is bigger than that offered by other pheromone brands. I started with a small application by adding two sprays to my neck.
  • Fact Check: Real pheromone products do actually work but it's up to you if want to get your girl in the sack.
  • Ok, so let's move on and let me show you my results after two weeks of using Pherlure.

Pherlure's Attracting Power
I tried using Pherlureat bars, clubs, and even a little at work to see if anything would happen. My first experience included an attractive blonde approaching me while wating in line for a beer and commenting on how good I smelled. Other observations include more eye contact, smiles, and desire to talk with me. I also noticed women were more likely to approach me, smile, make more direct eye contact, and chat with me. That's fine but that all didn't matter if I couldn't seal the deal and get them in the sack. We can proudly say that there is no competition to the meaning of Pheromones, when comparing this article with other articles on Pheromones found on the net.

Was Approached by Ten Girls of Which Seven Showed a Strong Interest in Me
Two of them ended up in my bed - no complaint's here. After four hours the effects started to wear off - so you may need to reup if it's gonna be a long night. Not every girl wanted to sleep with me but that fact that I banged two hot ones with minimal effort is proof to me that this stuff works. We do not mean to show some implication that Pheromones have to rule the world or something like that. We only mean to let you know the actual meaning of Pheromones!

Many Different Pheromones Products are Now Available on the Market
Pheromone products come in all shapes and sizes. For example, you have an option to buy pheromone colognes, pheromone oils, pheromone perfumes, or pheromone concentrates. Also, pheromone products are available in either unscented or scented versions. Of course, men and women use different types of pheromone products - but there are some unisex pheromone colognes, too. Androstenone and androsterone-based products attract women, while copulins attract men.
  • So, where to start?
  • Use one product and pay attention to the reactions of men or women around you.
  • Then try another pheromone product.
  • The key with testing a product is to be persistent and to test in different situations.
  • You cannot just apply pheromones then sit back and wait.
  • Don't be discouraged if you don't see results immediately.
  • Remember that everybody has unique body chemistry.
  • Try different dosage or a different mix of two or more pheromone colognes.
  • Testing is the best way to find out what works for you.
  • And it's not expensive - there are a lot of free pheromone samples available - and pheromone kits for beginners as well.
  • This can be considered to be a valuable article on Pheromones.
  • It is because there is so much to learn about Pheromones here. Smile

Based on popularity and effectiveness, some of the best pheromone products include: Chikara, Alter Ego, Scent of Eros, Rogue Male, Pheromax, Realm, The Edge, Passion Pheromone Attractant, Perception, New Pheromone Additive - NPA and Primal Instinct. These products contain different amounts of pheromones. Most pheromones can be combined with others. For example, Scent of Eros can be combined with androstenone products - Primal Instinct or The Edge. Using great confidence in ourselves, we endeavored to write such a long article on Pheromones. Such is the amount of matter found on Pheromones. Smile

Powerful agents to attract the opposite sex or to enhance your love life can be created when special scents are combined with high quality pheromones. Pheromones are natural chemicals that animals, including human beings, naturally release to attract the opposite sex. Pheromones cannot consciously be identified, but can register a response through the vomeronasal organ (VNO), which resides in the nasal passage. Certain scents, for example vanilla, can sometimes promote thoughts of sex. The combination of the right scents and pheromones can be a more powerful sexual attractant than either the scent or pheromone alone.

Amazingly These Agents are Easy to Use Because You Simply Wear Them on Your Skin
Users of a pheromone scent that smells like a day at the beach, are directed to wear some on their forehead, bridge of the nose, and neck. This helps the sexual attractant to radiate in the area in front of the wearer so that they may become the recipient or focus of sexual interest. Smile

Good indication that a fragrance is a sexual attractant is that it cannot be identified. Rather, the scent tends to change but is always pleasant. The brain unconsciously tries to identify the source. In the end the brain responds to the odor resulting in sexual arousal. This may be why sometimes females have told us that they felt intrigued and interested, but at the same time they did not know why. Hard to identify but pleasant scents sometimes can be the best aromas to attract the opposite sex. It is only if you find some usage for the matter described here on Pheromones that we will feel the efforts put in writing on Pheromones fruitful. So make good usage of it!
  • Our experience with one fragrance or sexual attractant made up of 17 different scents has this property.
  • To be consistent the agent must have high quality scents to be a consistent sexual attractant.
  • The scents have to be chosen carefully and kept in the correct ratios.
  • The results over a period of time have been outstanding.
  • The idea is that not one scent can be identified.
  • In fact knock off perfumers have tried to duplicate this product without success because of its complicated makeup.
  • In addition the multi scented fragrance has powerful pheromones added to it making it more powerful than just pure pheromones alone.
  • Fragrances made of many scents have to be chosen carefully and kept in the correct ratios with pheromones to create a sexual attractant.
  • It can be painstaking to get the right combination, but when you get it right, the results can be outstanding.

Mass marketed fragrances are designed to appeal to the wearer but are not good sexual attractants. Believe it or not, sometimes certain food scents can draw a reaction. In the end, a wearer who is willing to wear a scent that is unconventional may be the wisest or luckiest individual to receive interest from the opposite sex.

Here is One Test to Determine If a Fragrance Has Sexual Attractant Properties
Place a small amount of the fragrance on your wrist and smell it. Then extend your hand completely away from your nose. Then bring it back to your nose and smell it again. Do this several times. If the aroma smells different but at the same time is pleasant you may have a powerful sexual attractant. Looking for something logical on Pheromones, we stumbled on the information provided here. Look out for anything illogical here.

Wink RE: Pheromone Human
Allure Pheromones - Scientists are Cracking the Code of Sexual Chemistry and Attraction
We have long used the word chemistry to describe how well two people get along in the wild world of dating. Little did we know how accurate the use of that word was. Scientists are now making daily advances as they work at cracking the code of sexual chemistry and attraction. Some of the recent findings and products created based on them are astonishing.

Recent findings indicate that humans produce very powerful chemical substances known as pheromones. The chemical tricksters can not be seen, felt, or tasted, heard, or smelled, yet they have the power to make people react in certain ways. There is a small organ inside the nose that has, until recently, not been found to serve any useful purpose. This organ, called the vomeronasal organ, has been shown to process pheromones and stimulate the limbic region of the brain, causing specific emotional and physical responses. This discovery by scientists has helped in uncovering the code of sexual chemistry and attraction.

Quote:Has been suggested that one of the many reasons men and women do not have as much chemistry between them as they once seemed to, is that many of the pheromones that are normally produced in the body are washed away by frequent bathing or overpowered by scented soaps and laundry detergents, perfumes, and colognes. These substances seem to mask normal levels of pheromones. It is not always that we just turn on the computer, and there is a page about Pheromones. We have written this article to let others know more about Pheromones through our resources.

Work Continues on the Project of Cracking the Code of Sexual Chemistry and Attraction
Pheromones seem to be the largest key to unlocking the secrets of why people are attracted to one another sexually. Now while reading about Pheromones, don't you feel that you never knew so much existed about Pheromones? So much matter you never knew existed. Wink

You would like to learn the code of sexual chemistry and attraction, and the art of seducing beautiful women, then visit my website and get your hands on my free report that has changed the dating life of thousands of men and turned them into dating kings. Writing about Pheromones is an interesting writing assignment. There is no end to it, as there is so much to write about it!

Dr. Virgil Amend has been studying the effects of human pheromones for many years. He recently introduced a topical mixture of human pheromones for men that have been proven to have very powerful effects on women. Using this mixture of pheromones increases the sexual attraction women feel toward a man by several degrees, making it more likely that they will respond favourably to his attention. Keep your mind open to anything when reading about Pheromones. Opinions may differ, but it is the base of Pheromones that is important.

So is Pherlure the Real Thing or is It a Scam?
The biggest question people will ask about Pherlure is whether or not it will assist you to attract the opposite sex as they claim. After all, everybody desires to be more attractive to the opposite sex.

Order to understand how Pherlure really works , you have to understand how Pheromones work. Pheromones are chemicals that naturally effuse from the body that sends out an under-the-radar scent signal to the opposite sex. These signals trigger very powerful responses sexually. Using the intuition I had on Pheromones, I thought that writing this article would indeed be worth the trouble. Most of the relevant information on Pheromones has been included here.
  • Pherlure is scientifically proven to increase your pheromones and it offers the following benefits.
  • It gets you more eye contacts and smiles from members of the opposite sex.
  • You will come across as a sexually attractive person and you will be able to score yourself more dates and even get lucky.
  • If your relationship seems to be going down, you can spark up your relationship and engage in even more passionate lovemaking.
  • You will also feel more dynamic and confident and people will be able to notice it with the help of Pherlure.

After much research and surveys, men and women exposed to pheromones seem to act much differently. They claim that they feel much more self-confident, attractive, and romantic when it comes to dealing with the opposite sex. When the scientists run some tests in terms of pheromone effectiveness, it has been found that the majority of people estimated around 74% of the test subjects feel themselves wanting to hug more, kiss more and engage in sexual activities like sexual intercourse. :o.

Pherlure is the stuff that helps you to generate more pheromones to attract the better. When you examine the history of Pherlure, since 1703, the experts have made a lot of amazing discoveries about an organ in the nasal cavity which is popularly known as the vomeronasal organ (VNO). These VNOs are actually the receptors for pheromones. It is kind of like a special six sense for sexual desires. We can't perceive it but they seem to work on the human body. An idle brain, is a devil's workshop they say. Using this ideology in mind, we ventured to write on Pheromones, so that something productive would be achieved of our minds.

People Have Long Debated How Much Influence Scent Has on Sexual Attraction
I'm not talking about a take a look at human scents that gets sprayed on you by attractive young women when you visit an upmarket department store, rather it's the virtually unnoticeable smells we all produce normally, human pheromones.
  • Every animal, including humans, have a unique aroma that they give off in order to attract a suitable mate.
  • Can you remember the last time you found yourself strangely attracted to someone but you couldn't figure out why?
  • They weren't the sort of person you were usually attracted to, but you WERE attracted - very attracted in a sexual sense.
  • We had at first written a rough assignment on Pheromones.
  • Then after a few improvisions and enhancements here and there, we have ended up with this end product.

We all know of or have experienced the phenomenon of a group of women who live together usually have their monthly menstrual periods at the same time. The pheromones the women produce influence each other. Again, nobody knows yet why this happens but research is continuing.
  • Some people produce more pheromones at different times of the year and some, especially women, produce more during ovulation.
  • This is nature's way of ensuring the survival of the species by securing a mate to fertilize those eggs.
  • Opportunity knocks once.
  • So when we got the opportunity to write on Pheromones, we did not let the opportunity slip from our hands, and got down to writing on Pheromones.

Recent study was carried out with couples and twins put in the same position at bars as a social experiment. The overwhelming result of the experiment was that the men and women who applied human pheromones before they went out were approached much more often and the couples who participated hugged, kissed and had sex more often. In the twins experiment, the twin that applied the human pheromones received double the attention and people approaching than the twin that didn't apply pheromones.

This Happens to Everyone and It's Definitely Pheromones At Work
For reasons that can not yet be explained, some people produce more human pheromones than others and guess what? - they're the ones who are always out on a date and never alone when they don't want to be. Someone always wants to be with them.

Research Into Male Pheromones
Tends to focus on two different areas. The first is identifying the impact of pheromones on hormone levels, which documents their role as primers of human sexual behavior. Primers create the optimum hormonal conditions for human reproduction by causing long-lasting shifts in female hormone levels. For instance, exposure to male pheromones helps regulate women's menstrual cycles, which makes conception more likely. A primer role for human male pheromones is important to the perpetuation of the human species.

Amie Reese, Scientific Researcher Specializing
In the fascinating area of human pheromones has created the most effective formula that It is only because that we are rather fluent on the subject of Pheromones that we have ventured on writing something so influential on Pheromones like this!
  • However, far more interesting to most people is the potential role of male pheromones as triggers or releasers of sexual activity in women.
  • The role of pheromones as triggers for sexual activity in lower mammals and other species is well known. :o

One study showed that exposure to very small amounts of a male pheromone, androstadienone (AND), was associated with psychological arousal. It's important to note that psychological arousal is different than sexual arousal. When it's used in the psychological sense, 'arousal' means heightened attention and focus. While psychological arousal is necessary for sexual arousal, it certainly doesn't always lead to it. In other words, women have to pay attention to something to find it sexually arousing, but they don't become sexually aroused by the vast majority of things to which they pay attention.


Female_Pheromone_Perfume_Cologne_Pheromones_Parfum_For_Women_Attract
[Image: Female-Pheromone-Perfume-Cologne-Pheromo...IN-WB.jpeg]

Simply put, with respect to both psychological arousal and brain excitation, at least one male pheromone-androstadienone-helps create conditions in the female brain that can lead to sexual activity under the right conditions. Based on the current research evidence, however, it's likely that male pheromones act as triggers or releasers for sexual behavior in women. Although there was a lot of fluctuation in the writing styles of we independent writers, we have come up with an end product on Pheromones worth reading!

However, unlike in the animal kingdom, where sexual activity results from a combination of the right chemical messages and access, sexual behavior in humans is a complex phenomenon. Cognition (thoughts) and emotions or feelings play important roles in determining whether sexual behavior occurs. So several studies have focused on the impact of human male pheromones on the brain activity and feelings of women. Wink
  • This particular study, researchers found that women paid more attention to men who were wearing very small amounts of AND.
  • The concentration of the male pheromone that the men applied was too small for the women to consciously detect via the sense of smell.
  • Interestingly, the researchers also found that the female brain processed the sensory input from AND at twenty times the speed of other substances.
  • They also found that a small proportion of women-roughly 10%-were exquisitely sensitive to this male pheromone.

Male Female Attraction Through Pheromones
The only way the lower living beings like ants, butterflies, birds, dogs or even a tiger can communicate is through pheromones. The pheromones are the way they communicate as they cannot communicate through oral or written word. The communication starts when the particular species it at its very best to procreate and ends when the species is not in a position to attract the opposite sex. Apart from the natural desire to find a mating partner, the pheromones also serve the purpose of communicating fight or flight signal. Smile

Wearing Female Pheromones is Not an End All Activity
Without the attendant personality and natural attraction it might not work well, but when you are competing with equals, wearing a pheromone will definitely give you the edge. It is not always that we just turn on the computer, and there is a page about Pheromones. We have written this article to let others know more about Pheromones through our resources.

The Best way to Best pheromone Femininity is the best pheromone and added to it the pheromone that you wear on your body; you have everything working for you. The best way to use the pheromone is to apply it on your breast and then allow the pheromones to work for you. Physical intimacy is not necessary but you have to be within just 2 to 7 feet for pheromones to be effective. The remote control of pheromones will make the male be attracted to you without his knowing it and remain attracted to you as long as you want it. Now while reading about Pheromones, don't you feel that you never knew so much existed about Pheromones? So much matter you never knew existed.

Selective Pheromones
Males are attracted to female pheromones. While male pheromones have been given the name of androstenone, no such name could be found to the female pheromones. It is referred by the same name and marketed through the brand names. In the world dominated by the males, where men are trying to woo females, it might be difficult to find a female trying to woo just any male. Women have to be specific and thus should be trying to woo a particular male by using a female pheromone.

How Pheromones are Used for Attracting Males
In order to make a complete woman out of you and to competing with other women around your choice male, it might be necessary to get the attention of the male. The dressing is one way of doing it, but when you are in company of other females who are all similarly dressed, you might find that pheromones work on a subconscious level without your man knowing it. He is attracted to you by the action of pheromones and only to you. Make sure that your other actions do not impede the work of pheromones Writing about Pheromones is an interesting writing assignment. There is no end to it, as there is so much to write about it!

Since the pheromones work on a subconscious level without the male even knowing it, it is a greater attracting force than your actions. It is a magnet working for you and if you know your man better you will be able to add to that bond of attraction, you have everything working for you and no negative factors. Hence pheromones work for you.
