Do pheromones work?
Does Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage formula work?
You’ll find out in this review. Or maybe I should better call it a scientific research paper with personal experiments…
A lot of people all over the world have asked themselves the same question, many of them leading scientists.
Some of these leading scientists dedicated their whole life to study the effect of pheromones, the air-borne chemical hormones that supposedly have the power to attract the opposite sex.
Today I want to do more than just sharing my own personal experiments with you (and I’ve done quite a few). No, this article is about so much more. Besides testing many of the world’s most renowned pheromone products in all kinds of situations and with all kinds of different women, I’ve done more research on this topic than I’ve done for my Master thesis.
I read every book I could find and I devoured every scientific research study that I could get my hands on. I bathed in knowledge and I read until my eyes were burning.
And I did all of this for one simple reason…
I wanted to find the answer to THE QUESTION you are asking yourself right here and right now:
“Do pheromones work?” and especially “does Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage formula work?”
But before I share my personal findings and the results of countless scientific studies in this Pheromone Advantage review, I want to ask you one simple question…
Have you watched Ocean’s 13?
No, I am not talking about some secret scientific study of an FBI division that calls itself Ocean’s 13. I am actually talking about the movie with Matt Damon, Brad Pitt and George Clooney (what a charismatic motherfucker).
But why the heck am I mentioning this movie in an article that is about finding the answer to whether or not pheromones work?
Because there is a famous scene in this movie in which the rather unattractive Matt Damon, who is walking around with a monstrous nose, seduces a sexy blonde woman with the power of the hormones that this article is dedicated to.
The question that naturally arises is:
Do pheromones work or is it nothing but a fantasy that Hollywood tries to sell us?
Well, usually I would say that anything that Hollywood produces is utter bullshit, but usually there is no scientific research behind Hollywood’s claims and storylines. In this case, however, there is a lot of scientific research that leaves no doubt to whether or not pheromones work.
But regardless of whether or not these lust hormones have any effect on how sexually attracted a woman is to you, I first want to answer another question that probably interests you:
How do pheromones actually work?
How Pheromones (Are Supposed to) Work
Pheromones are odorless hormones that cannot be detected by scent, so everyone who tells you how amazing their incredible new pheromone spray smells is lying in your face. It is impossible to smell them, at least when we define “smelling” as a conscious effort.
They can, however, be recognized on a subconscious level.
The limbic system, which is nothing but your sexual nerve center, is extremely good at recognizing pheromones.
Apparently, it works like this:
Decades ago, scientists discovered the vomeronasal organ inside the nasal cavity and its sole function is to detect the scents of the opposite sex from the same species. Thanks to countless studies that have been conducted, scientists discovered that the vomeronasal organ is directly connected to the limbic region of the brain.
(This image is from Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage formula)
The nerve pathways that connect the vomeronasal organ with the limbic system bypass the olfactory cortex, which makes it humanly impossible to smell pheromones. In case you didn’t know, the limbic system is not directly linked to cognitive thought patterns, but to emotional reactions, such as sexual desire.
Whenever a human being from the opposite sex (women respond to different pheromones than men) sends out signals through these lust hormones, electric impulses are sent through these nerve pathways directly into the limbic region of the brain.
Once the pheromones that you sent out have reached the limbic part of a woman’s brain, the emotions that are triggered in her brain release phenethlamine, which are chemicals that are responsible for the dopamine regulation.
And we all know what sexual attract in combination with the happiness hormone dopamine can lead to…
That’s how my girlfriend was moaning once I applied Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage formula on my neck. But more on that later.
Now it’s time to share my personal pheromone journey with you. It’s a journey about trust, doubt and some really weird tests.
How I Discovered Pheromones
I didn’t discover pheromones just recently. I actually discovered them about five years ago. However, back then I had no idea about Phoermone advantage, let alone that I would ever write a review about this product.
“Well, that took you a while to write this one damn article” you might be thinking.
Let me explain.
I discovered pheromones during a time when I was reading everything I could find about attracting and seducing women. I stumbled upon these lust hormones while I was clicking through a forum where guys like you and I shared our problems, insights and so-called lay reports in order to help each other…and to boost our fragile egos.
One of the threads, it must have been about ten pages long, was filled with dozens of positive reviews about a company that sold pheromone spray.
Due to the fact that I was not only curious, but also chronically underfucked, I read the whole thread…and dozens of articles and scientific studies that all claimed that these hormones do in fact exist.
I was speechless. I just couldn’t believe that pheromones work.
“I can’t imagine that this works!”
“This is a scam!”
The thought that others were successfully using these lust hormones to attract women made me angry and envious (you might know this feeling).
Thanks to the combination of my “everything is a scam” mentality and my envious anger I NEVER ordered them.
My 5 Years without Pheromones
Fast forward five years and these liquid fuckers are knocking on my door again. I hadn’t even thought about them for the past five years and suddenly I got introduced to them again.
Two of my closest friends in the self-improvement and dating community told me about the power of pheromones, one of them a woman who is known as one of the best female dating coaches in the world.
I was convinced that these two people would tell me to “fuck off with your pheromone bullshit!” but they actually believed in these genies in bottles.
I was shocked.
All these years I was convinced that pheromones were nothing but a scam and now two of the people I trust the most actually recommended them.
I had to see it for myself. I had to find out for myself whether or not pheromones work and whether or not products, such as Pheromone Advantage are a scam or legit.
I Tested the Shit out of Pheromones
I wish I had started my reletless testing phase with Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage formula. But I didn’t.
Once I made the decision to accept the job as a laboratory rate, I researched all kinds of different products. I bought everything I could find and tested all the famous pheromone sprays that were on the market.
To be honest, I spent way too much money on all kinds of products that didn’t deliver to their promises. Well, at least I did it for a good cause.
Now you don’t have to waste your money on products that don’t work.
I tested all the products famous products.
I tested Raw Chemistry Pheromone Cologne oil that advertised their irresistible smell.
Remember how I told you that pheromones are odorless? The only reason why this product got so many positive reviews on amazon is because it smells really good.
Unfortunately, every cheap perfume does that too and this says absolutely NOTHING about the effect of the pheromones.
I also tested the famous Athena Pheromone that was invented by the mother of Pheromones, Dr. Winnifred Cutler (funny name, right?). She claims that it is the only pheromone product that is backed up by science. I bought it, but I couldn’t see any effect when I tested it.
Next I tested Pherazone, which is definitely one of the most famous products on the market. They advertise their product with some busty actress whose name I forgot. She just smiles in the camera and says that pheromones transform you into the most attractive man, even if you have a really terrible personality.
Yeah, right. So I can be a total dick, insult every woman I meet and the pheromones will get me laid?
Oh, and a dude who is allegedly a personal trainer brags about hooking up with some of his clients.
As if any male personal trainer in the world would look into the camera and admit that he bangs his clients. He would be out of business in a heartbeat.
Of course I order it anyway because I wanted to test it. What a waste of money.
In between testing all those famous and controversial products I stumbled upon a product that looked quite unimpressive.
No busty girls who talk mindless crap…just an old man with a PhD and an irresistible 6 months money back guarantee, which to be totally honest, I never knew existed.
Of course I was suspicious, especially because the product had some bad reviews on amazon, in which people complained about the non-existent smell.
But isn’t exactly THAT what science says about pheromones?
I was curious and I ordered it and to my surprise I didn’t regret this decision.
As the determined laboratory rat I was, I tested the product in field as soon as I got it…
Do Pheromones Work? Here’s What I Discovered
Now that I am going to share MY test results (and later on scientifically proven test results), I want to make one thing clear:
Pheromones do work.
A good pheromone product delivers to its promise. These lust hormones actually have the power to increase your sex appeal and to turn women’s heads.
However, I promised myself to always speak the truth, so I need to say one more thing to this conclusion:
The Axe Effect that you see on TV does NOT exist.
What does the Axe Effect has to do with your expectations about phereomones?
Watch the following video and you’ll understand WHY I say this:
Yes, pheromones have the power to make you more attractive and to make women crave animalistic sex with you. Period.
Just because you use lust hormones doesn’t mean that you can step into a club and dozens of girls lift their skirts while they run towards you.
Just because you use these effective hormones doesn’t mean that every girl desperately tries to suck your dick as soon as you introduce yourself to her.
Please don’t have completely unrealistic expectations and then complain afterwards that “it’s all a scam.”
After reading hundreds of reviews on Amazon I KNOW that wrong ludicrous expectations are the #1 reason for disappointment.
Pheromones have the power to make you more attractive and to trigger sexual desire in women. I know this from my own experience. Just don’t expect every nun to get naked as soon as you step into the church.
Instead, have a look at what my in field tests with Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage formula revealed…
Situation 1: The Day Game Test
My first day with my newly purchased pheromone oil started like every normal day. Shit, shower, shave and a healthy fruit shake. The only difference was that I applied the pheromones on my skin. A little bit on the neck and one drip on the left and on the right forearm.
I didn’t smell anything. It’s true what they say. Pheromones are indeed odorless. But whether I smelled like a perfumery or a normal human being was irrelevant. The only thing that interested me was the following question:
“Do pheromones work and do the women I approach react slightly different than usually?”
So I went to the city and approached approximately twenty women. Of course, not one single girl ran towards me while unzipping her bra. That only happens in Axe commercials, not in real life.
Let’s have a look at what actually did happen in real life.
To be honest, the increase of my numbers to approach ratio increased not much. I might have gotten one number more than usually and I can’t really say if it was for the pheromones or not. What did change, however, was the reaction of the girls who gave me their number.
I remember hugging one girl in a way that allowed her to smell my neck. Right after I hugged her she started to play with her hair. She came closer and closer until we nearly kissed each other. It was kind of weird, but I liked it.
I remember another situation where I whispered something in a girl’s ear and while I was doing this she was sniffing my neck. I tried not to laugh, because the situation reminded me of dogs sniffing their butts. She eagerly gave me her number and asked me when we could meet.
Situation 2: The Night Game Test
I have to be honest. I hate clubs and I hate party girls, but for the sake of this test I forced myself to hit the clubs and to pick up some horny party chicks. I stepped into the club and no head was turning.
Anything else would have been more than unrealistic. I mean, no woman can possibly smell pheromones when her nose gets tortured with the smell of alcohol, sweat and the famous Axe victims who support their favorite company by consuming one bottle a day.
Next stop: the dancefloor.
I danced around, smiled at some girls and some of them smiled back while others ignored me. It was the same procedure as usual. I started to dance with this one girl who had such an adorable smile that I just couldn’t resist. We danced a bit and after a while I took her hand and led her to the bar are.
We sat down, had a playful conversation about her uncomfortable high heels and then it happened again. I came really close, whispered something in her ear and witnessed how her behavior started to change.
Her friendly smile turned more and more into arousal. Before I leaned over, I was the one who tried to take things further by slowly escalating sexually. Now that she smelled my neck, she was the one who took things further.
As I found out later, she turned into a sexual freak.
The limbic region of her brain couldn’t be tamed anymore. I guess I should have applied less of Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage formula that night.
Situation 3: The Girlfriend Test
A couple of month later I tested Pheromone Advantage with my girlfriend before writing this Pheromone Advantage review. I used the lust hormones on our first date (maybe that’s why things went so fast…hummm), but I stopped using them at the beginning of our relationship.
Now that I wrote down all the findings of my months-long pheromone experiment, I decided to run one last test.
Test subject: My wonderful girlfriend
Our sex life is pretty amazing, but the day I ran the test she was in a bad mood, a bit tired and stressed from university. It was the perfect timing for a little experiment. I applied the pheromones and hugged her. She smelled my neck and the rest of the evening is not for children’s ears.
All I want to say is that using pheromones started as an experiment. Now it is a habit. I use them every day and it feels awesome.
Do Pheromones Work? Yes, and They Are Easy to Use
Yes, pheromones do work. They are not some magical elixir that makes hundreds of women in a radius of 100 miles rip their clothes off and run towards you (this would be annoying after one day), but they do in fact work.
My own experiences have proven that those liquid motherfuckers have the power to…
A: Make you more attractive to women by sending out the right signals.
B: Make women crave sex with you by messing with the limbic (the sexual) area of her brain.
Oh and as a little bonus you can also enjoy a powerful placebo effect that has the power to…
C: Make you more confident because you KNOW that women are more attracted to you than ever before.
Now that I told you the truth about my own experience using pheromones, I can already hear the haters.
I can already hear how extreme feminists call it a big fat lie, because they can’t deal with the fact that women (just like men) are sexual beings who rather listen to the limbic part of their brains than to their hate speeches. They will tell you that no modern independent woman would ever crave sex because of such a primitive and animalistic thing like lust hormones.
I can already hear how Slut Hate forum members call it a scam because they “know” that women are only attracted to assholes and pheromones won’t change that. They will tell you that it’s all one big fat lie, despite the fact that they have NEVER even used pheromones and despite the fact that the effectiveness of lust hormones has been proven by countless scientific studies.
Well, I tell you that pheromones do in fact work and there are a lot of scientific studies that back up my own experiences…
What Does Science Say About My Findings?
I read dozens of scientific studies that all try to answer the question “do pheromones work?”, and in the following lines I want to introduce you to them. As you can see, I’ve done my research on this subject.
And yes, I want to provide you with more than just one research of one university. From the University of Chicago to the George Washington School of Health & Science – I want to provide you the scientific proof that you came here for.
Let’s put on your nerd glasses and dive right into the final results of years of research from dedicated scientists that asked themselves the same question over and over again:
“Do pheromones work?”
Here’s what science says about Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage formula (and my review proves it)…
Scientific Study #1: Pheromonal Influences on Sociosexual Behavior in Men
The first scientific study that I want to share with you is called Pheromonal Influences on Sociosexual Behavior in Men. I think the title is pretty straight forward and doesn’t leave room for a lot of interpretation.
The study was conducted by Winfried B. Cutler, Ph.D., Erika Friedman, Ph.D. and Norman L. McCoy Ph.D. in which they tested whether synthesized human male pheromones increase the sociosexual behavior of men. Thereby, sociosexual behavior was defined as petting, kissing, dates, sleeping next to a romantic partner and having sex.
In non-academic words:
The goal of the study was to find out whether or not guys who use pheromones get more kisses, more dates and more pussy.
The result of the study:
The use of pheromones led to a “statistically significant and distinct increase in the two most intimate behaviors: sexual intercourse and sleeping with a woman.”
Please don’t ask me why on earth these three scientists differentiate between sexual intercourse and sleeping with a woman. For me they are the same, but maybe that’s because I only have a Masers and not a Ph.D.
They also concluded that the usage of lust hormones increased “the next most intimate behavior of petting/affection/kissing and informal dates.”
Again, don’t ask me about the difference between informal dates and formal dates. You can, however, ask me for a link to the original study, so that you can further investigate (just in case you are skeptical).
Scientific Study #2: The ABC Documentary with Dr. Winnifred Cutler
Now that you have survived the first scientific publication, it’s time for a video. But don’t be too excited. We keep things strictly academic by watching a documentary that was shown on ABC in which the effects of pheromones were examined by testing it in field on identical twins.
Yep, this time I am not the laboratory rat. If I would have an identical twin, I would have applied. But don’t worry. They also test pheromones on two female twins and they are quite hot.
Oh, before I forget it, the video also features Dr. Winnifred Cutler who I already mentioned earlier. Again, I am 100% confident that she is an experienced and knowledgeable biologist. I don’t deny that.
Nevertheless, I found a product from another Dr. that worked way better for me, but more on that later.
Please enjoy the video with the famous twin experiment:
Scientific Study #3: Research from the University of Chicago – Published in the Journal of Nature
The next scientific study that I want to share with you was conducted by the University of Chicago and its findings were published under the straightforward headline “University of Chicago researchers establish proof of human pheromones.”
That’s what I call straightforward. But the study offers more than just a straightforward headline. It led to the revolutionary conclusion that pheromones do work and that they “have a major impact on the timing of ovulation.”
Researcher McClintock and Kathleen Stern, Ph.D. come to the conclusion that their data proves that “humans have the potential to communicate pheromonally.”
They found out that, even though humans are most likely not as strongly influenced by pheromones than animals, the majority of their test group was impacted by the use of pheromones.
Scientific Study #4: Sex and the Nose: Human Pheromonal Response
The next study that I want to share with you has the unambiguous title Sex and the Nose: Human Pheromonal Responses. As you can already guess, the purpose of this study was to find out if and to which extent the recognition of pheromones influences the mate selection in sexual reproduction.
The result of the study:
Although olfaction as a sensory modality has declined in importance due to the widespread use of deodorants and perfumes, the results of the study suggest that “it pays a far more important role than we suppose.”
The findings of this study allow the conclusion that humans are similarly effected by pheromones as animals and that these lust hormones have an impact on how, when and with whom humans choose to reproduce.
Scientific Study #5: Dr. Vimal Murthy – George Washington University School of Medicine & Health Science
Even though the test in the following video includes one of the products that I was not very satisfied with, it also includes a commentary from Dr. Vimal Murthy from the George Washington University School of Medicine & Health. I did some research on Dr. Vimal Murthy. It turns out that he currently works as a Medical Director of a clinic division…and that he knows a thing or two about pheromones.
In the video he states that these lust hormones “attract the opposite sex” and that “recent studies have proven that people who are exposed to human pheromones feel an instinctive powerful attraction not knowing why.”
He also mentions another study that found out that 90% of men who use pheromones increase their attraction to women AND he supports my explanation about the vomeronasal organ.
Man, I am ready for my Ph.D and I hope you are ready for his interview:
Scientific Study #6: Effects of putative male pheromones on female ratings of male attractiveness: Influence of Contraceptives and the Menstrual Cycle
The last study that I want to share with you (I promise that it’s the last) is a bit different than the ones I already shared with you, but extremely interesting. This study particularly examined the influence of male pheromones on females and the way they tested it is really sneaky.
They took a bunch of women and asked them to rate photographs of different men according to their attractiveness. One control group was exposed to male pheromones, while the other group wasn’t exposed to any lust hormones.
The result of the study:
The five scientists who conducted the study found out that “Pheromone exposure resulted in significantly higher attractiveness ratings.”
They eventually came to the conclusion that “exposure to natural male axillary pheromones can significantly enhance female perception of various aspects of male attractiveness.”
I think that says it all…
The Pheromones that I Use Daily
So, do pheromones work?
Sorry, but if you still ask yourself this question you should scroll all the way up again to where I turned myself into a damn attractive laboratory rat. Oh, and please don’t forget to scroll up to all the scientific studies that I tortured myself with, so that I can share the truth with you.
And you can believe me when I say that I rather watched the new Game of Thrones season than studying scientific papers that distinguish between sexual intercourse and sleeping with women.
However, I am glad that I did it and I am proud that I did everything in my power to find the answer to the question “Do pheromones work?”
But now that you know the answer to THIS question you probably ask yourself ANOTHER question:
“Sebastian, what’s the pheromone spray that was so effective in your three test situations?”
Do you remember my words from the beginning of this article?
“No busty girls who talk mindless crap…just an old man with a PhD and an irresistible 6 months money back guarantee, which to be totally honest, I never knew existed.”
The product that I can recommend with 100% confidence is called Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage.
It’s THE ONLY product that delivered to its promise and that provably increased my attractiveness and sexual desire in the women I interacted with.
And yes, because the product looks so damn boring and old-fashioned I was extremely skeptical. Eventually, the six month money back guarantee convinced me to give it a shot.
I don’t regret it. In fact, I now use it every day.
Why? Well, let’s say it helps my sometimes a bit shy girlfriend to release her wild side 😉
Oh, and in the proces of writing this Pheromone Advantage review, I found out that I’m by far not the only one who enjoys the positive effects of Dr. Amend’s Pheromone Advantage formula.
This lucky fella had a great time getting his hair cut…
This guy had some fun flirting with a coworker who ignored him previously…
Heck, there’s even a Global Seducers who tested it in a foreign country…
All I can say is that the product works for me (my girlfriend approves it even more 😉 ) and that you should at least give it a shot.
Just imagine the envious eyes of your friends when a beautiful girl suddenly smells your neck…just like it happened to me when I tested and reviewed it.
You are going to have a lot of fun with it…
