For years scientists have striven to develop a human pheromone that increased attractiveness to the opposite sex. There is some evidence that humans respond to pheromones from the opposite sex in the same way many animals do. Pheromones are human chemicals that are capable of having effects on others of the same species outside of the body in the environment.
Pheromones carry subtle signals that can help increase one’s chances of attracting the opposite sex.
How do you buy these pheromones? Several high end fragrance manufacturers such as Calvin Klein have tried to incorporate animal and plant chemicals that mimic human pheromones into their fragrances but have done so with limited success. In clinical trials in Sweden in 2002 ten male and female fragrances claiming to have “pheromone type effects” were tested. The test results were mixed and no conclusive evidence was found that human pheromones, or at least the ones developed by perfume companies, had any effect on the opposite sex.
In the past few years, since the Swedish study, scientists have isolated and tested the actual human pheromones produced by men and women. Clinical trials on these human pheromones have not been conducted but it is expected that once they are a whole new era in perfume design will arise.
