Effectiveness of Human Pheromones in Perfumes and Colognes

Human pheromones, similar to that of animal and insect pheromones, are known to affect the behavior of the opposite sex for in terms of procreation and passionate love, which is why pheromone products have become a very popular product across the world in terms of increasing a person’s potential in attracting the opposite sex.

According to rumors, perfumes and colognes that contain human pheromones are said to increase its user’s potential in attracting the opposite sex. This rumor is in fact, true. Human pheromones, similar to that of animal and insect pheromones, are known to affect the behavior of the opposite sex for in terms of procreation and passionate love.

Known Sources of Human Pheromones and its Effects
According to a number of different scientists and researchers, there are different sources of human pheromones which can be used to influence the opposite sex for procreation, and that these are secreted through our body odor.

Popular sources include the Axillary Steroids, the Vaginal Aliphatic Acids, as well as the stimulators found in the Vomeronasal organ.

Axillary Steroids as Human Pheromones
There are three different axillary steroids that work as human pheromones, the Androstenol, Androstadienone, and Androstenone. And according to scientists, the most effective form of attractant among these axillary steroids is Androstenone.

It is hypothesized that Androstenone may be a way for a male to detect an ovulating female who would be more willingly to be involved in sexual interaction. Females are also most sensitive to this pheromone while ovulating. This pheromone is said to be only secreted by males as an attractant for women and is also thought to be a positive effector for their mood.

Vaginal Aliphatic Acids as Human Pheromones
The human female vagina is said to release a class of aliphatic acids, and that the combination of all these acids is referred to as "copulins". Copulins are used to signal ovulation; however, as human ovulation is concealed it is thought that they may be used for reasons other than sexual communication.

Stimulators in the Vomeronasal Organ
The human VNO (Vomeronasal Organ) does have epithelia that may be able to serve as a chemical sensory organ which allows the body to receive all the information about a person through only smell.

A possible theory being studied now is that these axillary odors are being used to provide information about the immune system. Information about an individual’s immune system could be used as a way of "sexual selection" so that the female could obtain good genes for her offspring, which is how most pheromone products work.
