Aphrodisiac perfume? Real Thing?
Me and my friend was talking about this and I would like to have your opinions. What do you think about "aphrodisiac perfume" ? There is a perfume called "SexeS". They also sell them in sex shop. They are supposed to make the womans (or mens, depending of wich one you use) more horny and to boost their libido. In other way, you use this "aphrodisiac" perfume and the boys/girls will be more willing to have sex with you (like if you go in a club or anywhere else). LOL IMO, what a stupid placebo!
What are you thinking about this? Is there someone that already used these aphrodisiac perfume and got a real positive result?
I think its just a bullshit to make money with dumb and desperate people...
It's not even a placebo.
Well, I mean, its only psychological...

So if, say, Newman from Seinfeld, uses Shower Axe gel, or Gain laundry detergent, or this perfume, chicks will be attracted to him like bees to honey.
One of the oldest advertising tricks in the book.
I have seen perfumes advertised that claim to contain pheramones that attract females, but how do we know that it is human pheramones.
.. I just don't imagine what a woman would think if she start kissing you right there and start smelling this pee smell on you...

Just wanted to put my 2 cent in here, IMHO any perfume can be an aphrodisiac, by this I mean that perfume will combine with your natural odours and produce a smell different then the smell directly from the bottle.
Another aspect is that the person who smells you can either like or dislike the smell. It’s all arbitrary to the sense of smell of the “sniffer”
I can recall instance where a perfume on a certain person (read exotic dancer) would make me weak in the knees but on another women would leave me indifferent.
You just have to find a regular perfume that suits your body metabolism and stick with that one. Go to the perfume counter, and try a couple sample, let them soak in for an hour or so, then ask any lady which one she likes better. With trial and error, you should find one that woman will like on you and it will be as good as any advertise aphrodisiac perfume
Hope this help.
You can use your own pheramones by wearing a shirt for 24 hours before you go out. Your own odor (provided you haven't been working construction or at the gym) is probably just as likely to attract women as any perfume you wear.
There are no human pheromones. They don't exist.
still being studied
That is still up in the air, as they are studies that go both ways

I'm aware of the "McClintock effect" which postulates a possible pheromone mechanism for synchronization of menstrual cycles but which does not identify any substance as a putative pheromone. There's also some very limited work showing that androstenedione might increase female cortisol release.
Even more pertinent than whether any human pheromones exist is this: assuming there even are any, do they have anything at all to do with sexual attraction? Given that the majority of pheromones are alarm and tracking signals, there is a very high likelihood that they would serve other purposes than sexual attraction.
Human did not evolve in widely-separated solitude, like moths that might have trouble finding each other, nor in huge hives or swarms that needed to coordinate activity. We evolved in small bands in which we could directly see and communicate with others. I don't need any pheromones to make me attracted to a female - I just need eyes. Females don't need pheromones to be attracted to me - they just need a peek inside my wallet.
Despite the claims of manufacturers, there exist no magic ingredients that can be applied to your skin that makes the chicks wild with desire for you. Such a process would be called "magic." What people are actually hoping for here used to go by the name of "love potions," and folklore is rife with warnings that increasing desire or attraction is an iffy business, especially in terms of arousing that interest in the intended person instead of the wrong target.
If nothing else, in the fantasy world in which I could go out and buy human-sex-pheromone-containing perfume and wear it to a club, it might slightly increase that hot babe's interest in the muscly guy with the Ferrari keys leaning against the bar. There's almost no chance that her brain would be able to tell where those chemicals wafting into her nose originated unless I grabbed her head and pulled her face into my newly-sprayed chest. Then I'd just end up attracting attention from the guys at the other end of the holding cell.
Here are some references you can look up, I'm sure a couple of them are serious studies.
But beside all these references, the sense of smell is under-estimated in relationship be it long or short term imho.

This is a pretty interesting article, complete with advice on what kind of perfume to buy.
Isn't it obvious ?
The smell of green !
Rub your face and body with money.
Specially in front of her.
I guarantee you she'll get pretty much excited
