Questions about human pheromones

What are pheromones?

The word pheromone, derived from the Greek word, pherein (which means “to carry”), is a chemical substance secreted by an animal, that influences the behavior of or causes a response in others of the same species. Pheromones are regarded as substances that function as attractants of the opposite sex, and they are primarily responsible for igniting the urge of mammals (including humans) to engage in sexual intercourse..For more information on pheromones and how they work, please click here to read “Do Pheromones Work?.

Will pheromones work for me?

If you use standard, commercially available pheromone products, there’s no guarantee that you’ll attract the opposite sex and have more sexual encounters. That’s because some of the commercial formulations available online today have questionable levels of effectiveness.However, optimized phermones offered by are lab-certified formulations that have been proven to attract the opposite sex time and time again.Although optimized pheromones are powerful sexual attractants (even if you don’t happen to be physically attractive), you can’t expect them to be effective if you have poor hygiene, dress like a slob or have an annoying personality. What optimized pheromones do is they give you a critical “edge” which enables you to effortlessly attract the opposite sex and “grease the chute” towards a sexual encounter.

Can I wear (or mix) your unscented pheromones with my favorite cologne or perfume?

You may wear unscented Max Attraction or Scent of Eros products with your favorite cologne or perfume and it will not affect its efficacy, but we do not recommend that you mix them in the same container, you should use both as two separate products.

How can pheromones give me “great chemistry” with the opposite sex?

When people say a man and a woman have “great chemistry,” it’s usually a metaphor that means that their personalities and idiosyncrasies are compatible. Little do people know, however, that pheromones play a critical role in giving the perceived sense of “good chemistry” and this is essential before both parties willingly consent to sexual intercourse.When a woman views a man, the presence (or absence) of pheromones dictates her interpretation of the man. The role of chemosensory (or the effects of smell) can favorably alter a man’s aura, which is unknowingly perceived by women.Likewise, when a man views a woman, the presence of pheromones elevates his opinion of her attractiveness more than her physical appearance. A woman need not look like a Playboy model or a beauty queen to capture a man’s interest IF she has that indescribable aura that a man perceives at the chemosensory level.

It is this chemosensory “aura” the pheromone signature, if you will that may be responsible for what the opposite sex perceives as “good chemistry.” Therefore, it can be concluded that pheromones enhance the natural chemistry between a man and a woman, and give the perception of increased compatibility, not to mention charisma and beauty which are not due only to esthetics or physical appearance.

This pheromone-induced “good chemistry” may be responsible for the unexplainable sense of joy that one feels when in the presence of one’s “crush” even when that person’s physical appearance is otherwise unremarkable.

Why are pheromones from significantly more effective at attracting the opposite sex than other commercially available pheromone formulations?

pheromone formulations have the optimum concentration of pheromones combined with extremely powerful additives. This combination produces a significantly more potent effect than naturally occurring pheromones because they activate the behavior-altering properties of pheromones that act as sexual attractants. All of the pheromone blends in the product line have an effectiveness unparalleled in the pheromone market far exceeding most pheromone formulations available today.Other pheromone marketers claim that their product is the ONLY true human pheromone, a claim that is big on marketing hype but falls short when it comes to results. In contrast, scientists created the optimized formulations to generate a response that not only mimics human pheromones but also achieves an effect which is several times more powerful than the effectiveness of human optimized pheromones for men are believed to bring about an increase in the luteinizing hormone (LH) in women, thereby causing a woman to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a man. This LH surge is theorized to elevate a woman’s predisposition towards sexual activity.

optimized pheromones for women are believed to bring about a testosterone surge in men, thereby causing a man to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a woman. This testosterone surge is what is hypothesized to makes a man fiercely determined to copulate.

People experience varying results depending on how well their unique body chemistry works with the potency, quality and source of the pheromones.

How do I use optimized pheromones? When should I use them and how much should I use?

We suggest you apply two to four sprays of the “Max Attraction” optimized pheromones to your outer clothing or to the wrists’underside or neck area; the spray formula will not stain your clothing. If you are applying “Scent of Eros”, use the convenient roll on to apply two or three dabs of oil on the previous mentioned pulse points. Stand or sit approximately 1 to 6 feet away from the person you want to attract in order for her/him to pick up your scent. Wait several seconds for the optimized pheromones to really work. It normally takes about 6 to 7 seconds to get a favorable reaction from the opposite sex. Although some people take longer to respond than others, you can expect to see results almost immediately and you probably won’t have to take the initiative to meet the object of your desire because she (or he) will probably make the first move.

Use optimized pheromones wherever you might come into contact with members of the opposite sex, such as a supermarket, the gym, a restaurant, the office, a park, etc. You might have more success using optimized pheromones in places that are not crowded or smoke-filled. This could be attributable to the fact that smoky and crowded places like bars and clubs have an overwhelming amount of olfactory and vomeronasal stimulation which compete with the effect of optimized pheromones.

I am a smoker, will “Luscious Lips” work for me?

If you smoke, “Luscious Lips” may not work for you because nicotine kills the fat cells below the surface layer of lip tissue, which prevents the lips from plumping. Nevertheless, you could still use it as a lip gloss and moisturizer..

What is the vomeronasal organ (VNO)?

The vomeronasal organ (VNO) is a cone-shaped organ in the nasal cavity, which is believed to be one of the body's receptors of pheromones. More, specifically, the VNO, which is part of the accessory olfactory system in the nose, does not respond to normal scents, but may detect odorless, barely perceptible pheromones.

Other schools of thought believe that it is not the VNO but rather cells in our main olfactory system and their affects on hormones secreted by the hypothalamus that are responsible for the affects of pheromones.

What are optimized pheromones?

Optimized pheromones are lab-certified pheromone formulations that have the optimum concentration of biologically active pheromones scientifically proven to produce behavior-altering results -- particularly as sexual attractants. Optimized pheromone formulations do not necessarily contain the maximum level of pheromones available on the market, but rather contain the greatest degree (and combination)of human pheromones that trigger a conditioned biological response in humans that, in turn, dictate their sexual behavior. Optimized pheromones also release neurotransmitters that directly modify the behavior of the opposite sex, such as triggering sexual excitement. For example:

Optimized pheromones for men are scientifically proven to bring about an increase in the luteinizing hormone (LH) in women, thereby causing a woman to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a man. This LH surge elevates a woman's predisposition towards sexual activity.

Optimized pheromones for women are scientifically proven to bring about a biochemical surge in men, thereby causing a man to have a heightened sexual responsiveness to a woman. This biochemical surge is what makes a man fiercely determined to copulate.
