The fear of pheromones is denial of reality.
Unlike androstadienone or any other androstene, the mixture of androstenol and androsterone has been shown to cause changes in women’s flirtatious behavior and in their self-reported level of attraction to the man wearing the mixture
Scent of Eros products make a man smell like he has a higher adult circulating testosterone level.
I was still somewhat surprised that the women reported they were more attracted to the man when he was wearing the androsterone/androstenol mix.
“…the Darwinist approach to attraction – beautiful faces and well-formed bodies are important biological indicators of a person’s value as a sexual partner.”
A Darwinist approach would be biologically based and modeled in other species. In other species, mate preferences develop via associations with social odors: olfactory/pheromonal cues of reproductive fitness. Food odors and social odors activate the same evolved neurophysiological mechanisms in all mammals. How might we have come to prefer beautiful faces and well-formed bodies if not via their association with human scent signatures?
We showed that a chemical mixture of androstenol and androsterone increases flirtatious behavior in women within 15 minutes of exposure.
