During a 15 minute interaction, a mixture of androsterone and androstenol influences women’s flirtatious behaviors and increases their level of attraction.

No other researchers have shown behavioral affects of named ingredients during a typical 15-minute social interaction.
Dr. Richard L. Doty’s claim that pheromones in mammals are a myth is again falsified by the presentation of data from a study of student women. As always, I welcome challenges to our study design, constructive criticisms on our results, and comments on biologically based animal models of behavior that do not incorporate pheromones. My question to Dr. Doty is: If mammalian pheromones don’t exist, what shall we call the human pheromones that elicit behavioral affects?
