I mean I view women as empty of logic, the only way to communicate with them is pheromones. What you did was logically try to work with her. You could have laughed in her face, and said it’s cool… then she will assume hmm…since he didn’t react he must have other girls satisfying him. I would have also ended the night on peak emotions with her, and then go ghost on her for a bit, she would have been freaking out. The use of “disappearing” has ALWAYS worked in my favor. Build strong emotions, and watch them flip.
The biggest thing that always got in my way of persuasion is easily hurt feelings, and ego issue. At my old sales job I was viciously attacked daily, but I kept my cool, due to daily heavy mediation. I was physically threatened by the box lifters, because they though the sales guy’s acted better than them.
Pheromone perfumers began infusing their concoctions with animal substances during the early years of perfumery because such ingredients were thought (like pheromones) to affect the sexual behavior of humans. The most commonly used were civetone (also called civet), a musky ?uid secreted by the anal glands of the civet cat; ambergris, a waxy, grayish substance formed in the intestines of the sperm whale; castoreum, a territory-marking substance of the Russian and Canadian beaver; muscone (also called musk, from the Sanskrit word for testicle), a greasy red secretion produced in the glandular abdominal sac of the male musk deer; and pig pheromones.
In the sixteenth century, England saw the arrival of civet, ambergris, and musk from Italy. The characters in Shakespeare’s plays rubbed their bodies with Civet to perfume themselves. Henry VIII favored a scent made from ambergris, musk, and rose, and Queen Elizabeth I wore a heady perfume of rose and musk. The trendsetting Elizabeth is also credited with introducing the pomander to the higher echelons of society. Hers was a pungent clump of ambergris, musk, and civet held together with aromatic gums and shaped into a ball. And the hedonistic aristocrats of the Napoleonic empire spent a good deal of time (and money) slathering their ?eshy bodies in musk. Were their sex lives amplified by this application of musk? Perhaps that’s not the point; in any event, they must have enjoyed themselves.
Another popular pheromone fragrance, angel water, combined the scents of myrtle, rose, orange ?ower, ambergris, and musk, and was considered to be the “in” fragrance of the eighteenth century. Fashionable ladies of the day applied the perfume to their breasts, which were more accessible thanks to their low-cut, dresses and push-up corsets.
Pheromone Fragrance Studies
Even today, as one fragrance study revealed, the majority of perfumes and colognes in a selected sampling featured musk as a key ingredient. Of 400 pheromone perfumes and colognes for women, 340 contained musk, 156 contained civetone, and 26 contained castoreum. Of the 350 male fragrances examined, 328 contained musk, 21 contained civetone, and 47 contained castoreum. In both samplings, several pheromone fragrances also contained pig pheromones, which were used as a fixative to slow the rate of evaporation, thus making the scent last longer. Before science made it possible to produce synthetic equivalents of animal ingredients in laboratories, the methods used to obtain civet, castoreum, ambergris, and muscone harmed the animals and were certainly no picnic for the person doing the collecting.
We wash off our pheromones. And what do we replace them with? Perfumes. What are those? Pheromones from other animals. Most perfumes are musk-based, and animal musk glands are full of pheromones. It’s so ironic: We wash off our human pheromones and replace them with animal pheromones, which do not work on humans.”
Sex in a Bottle
In the novel Perfume, by Patrick Suskind, a perfumer declares his desire to “create a scent that was not merely human, but superhuman, an angel’s scent, so indescribably good and vital that whoever smelled it . . . would have to love him, the wearer of that scent.” This is a near-Orwellian concept: What if we could control other people—their desires, their intentions, their moods—by perfuming our bodies with potions designed to affect the behavior of our fellow humans? That day has not yet arrived, but as you read on, you’ll find that some products want you to feel as if you have put another person into a Vulcan mind-meld of exquisite passion without even so much as blink-f? ing an eye. It should come as no surprise that the selling of perfume has traditionally revolved around the subject of sex. We love to see artistic magazine photographs of naked male midriffs and slinky, women. Whether their message is blatantly sexual or subtly erotic, perfume makers know that sex—or the promise of it sells.
But in a market that is crammed with pheromone fragrances, it takes something special to stand out from the crowd. To succeed, a, perfume maker must stir the imagination of the consumer and} offer something enticing and new. To that end, some perfume‘ manufacturers have jumped onto the pheromone bandwagon, adding what they say are human pheromones to their perfumes.
Also, our olfactory cells are “programmed” to receive and process the scent of musk. A study conducted by International Flavors and Fragrances, Inc., in New York City found that musk can affect a woman’s reproductive cycle. Women who sniffed musk perfumes and colognes ovulated more frequently and had shorter menstrual cycles. Nonetheless, pheromone researcher Clive Jennings-White warns: “While providing a scent may elicit a positive pleasant response, this should not be confused with pheromone response.”
The use of animal ingredients has survived the changing face of perfumery. But as we have already noted, pheromones are species-specific, which means an animal pheromone won’t elicit a response in the human VNO. A more likely explanation for the lasting presence of animal substances is that they act as highly effective fixatives, or carriers, for a fragrance’s main scent components. Civet, for example, contains a steroidal molecule that evaporates slowly, which means it can bind to the skin for extended periods of time and thus “hold” the scent of a perfume to the wearer.
If pheromones from a pig have no effect on the vomeronasal organ. With pheromones, humans are able to attract the opposite sex with ease. It is the power of pheromones that dictates your success with women. Pheromone and colognes and making bold claims about what their fragrances can do. Scents that purport to contain human pheromones are now widely available.
Because human pheromones can foster romantic feelings, they have won the attention of entrepreneurs attempting to bottle passion. In France, one perfume features “a molecular complex for maximal attraction” that supposedly can “hook” any unsuspecting person within a radius of thirty feet. Andron eau de cologne boldly says it can “create an intensive magnetic field between the sexes.” Some fragrances (such as Realm, described below) are backed with millions of dollars of research and extensive science, while others seem to come out of left field with their robust exclamations about aphrodisiacal effects. Anyone contemplating buying a pheromone fragrance should investigate the company behind the product. Snake oil sells simply because people become enthralled by ?ashy, if inaccurate, statements.
Awakening the Sixth Sense
Can pheromones in perfumes activate the human vomeronasal organ and send a message to the hypothalamus, the seat of emotional expression and feeling? Is the sixth sense truly awakened when we wear a perfume or cologne containing human pheromones?
Human Pheromone Sciences, Inc. (formerly called the Erox Corporation), founded in 1989 by David Berliner and with head- quarters in Fremont, California, says it has created the first perfumes and colognes to contain patented, synthesized human pheromones: Realm Women and Realm Men. One dose of either fragrance is said to contain the equivalent of one naked body’s worth of real pheromones.
Human Pheromone Sciences was launched with this mission: To explore how human pheromones could be added to perfumes and cosmetics to kick the sixth sense into high gear. To that end, the company put nearly $2.3 million into the research.
But a way to create clarity in our pheromone exchange would be to set some terms on what we are talking about. The point of the article is, that the SMART man (thus the point of the name of the blog: Rational Male, not Alpha Male) follows the Iron Rule of not co-habitating with a woman with pheromones unless he is willing to marry her within 6 months. You can be alpha and do stupid things, just as you can be beta and make smart choices.
Being Smart With Pheromones
To me, a smart man doesn’t abide by a false dilemma fallacy based on some person’s subjective experience. While that statement is it’s own poison well fallacy, I admit, it doesn’t make it wrong to use pheromones to attract women. What it means is that a truly smart man/alpha man whatever will look at all the data and make informed choices based on their own critical thinking skills and that gives them greater flexibility in life.
Yes, I usually follow a trail of evidence to support my pheromone claims! I don’t care about arguing or debating, I just don’t understand what evidence you have to support your claims and with a clear lack of evidence you are attacking my evidence based assertion about the article?
