Pheromone perfumes: seduction by smell
We all know that perfumes play an important role in both women and men seduction techniques.
Each person feels attracted to different odor types. Under this aspect, smell is quite subjective. Despite this, there are perfumes that contain scientifically tested substances: pheromones, to attract the opposite sex.
What are pheromones? Pheromones are chemical substances naturally released by our own body (also animals), which aims to attract the opposite sex through olfactory stimulation of the senses. Pheromone signals are detected through an organ placed in the nose, the Vomeronasal Organ (VNO). Once the VNO detects the pheromones, it sends a sexual signal to the brain, transmitting information as mood and over all, sexual availability and compatibility.
Although we naturally release pheromones, these substances also create themselves and may get included among the components of a perfume. This practice, as sophisticated as it may seem, is not new: in ancient Egypt pheromones were used for making perfumes. The Egyptians had discovered that sweat contained aphrodisiac substances for human beings (especially from healthy and strong people) and was extracted from men esp. selected for this job. Once collected, the sweat was stored in jars for being mixed up with different fragrances later. Odd, right? But effective, as the pass of the time has shown.
The three pheromones most used in perfumes are androsterone, androstenol (or Exaltolide) and androstenedione.
At the moment there are companies that devote time to the manufacture of perfume pheromones.
We all know woman and man perfumes from well-known brands that are said to contain this magnetic substance.
