Everything You Need For Your At-Home Pheromone Lab

Happy weekend, Love Scent fans!

Well, are you all surviving the winter? Here in Western Oregon, everything is covered in snow, ice, or both–not to mention fallen trees and a downed power line or two. And we know that our friends in the Midwest and on the East Coast are coping with full-blown arctic blasts. Stay safe out there, everyone! Let’s all hope for warmer days ahead. Hunker down inside with a hot drink if you can. Icy trees and snowy fields are a whole lot prettier when viewed through a window from a cozy sofa or comfy bed.

All right. Back to business!

This week, we’ll be looking at a topic we’ve discussed a little bit before: making pheromone mixes in your at-home lab. We’re not talking about synthesizing the pheromones themselves, of course, as that calls for highly specialized equipment – not to mention knowledge – that most of us just don’t have. We’re talking about pheromone perfumes, colognes, and unscented formulas, like those we have available in our catalog. Once you have the skills, ingredients, and creative drive, you can make superb pheromone colognes and perfumes in your own home.

Let’s walk through what you’ll need, and how Love Scent can help!


1. Knowledge

This probably goes without saying, but it always bears repeating: you can’t make a successful pheromone blend of your own without a solid understanding of the pure pheromones themselves. We’re not saying that you need a degree in biochemistry, but you’ll need to know what effects each pheromone has and how pheromones can interact with each other.

If you need to brush up on your pheromone knowledge, you can always take a look at our Pheromone Focus and Pheromone Science series, and our Tips and Tricks series is there for advice about general pheromone use.

For now, here are some basic things to keep in mind about some of the most common pheromones:

  • AndrosteNONE – a potent and aggressive sexual pheromone with a strong scent; gives men and women alike “alpha” qualties
  • AndrosteRONE – an “alpha” pheromone with a faint scent; improves perceived authority without aggression
  • AndroSTANone – similar to AndrosteNONE, with a similar scent; sexual effects are slightly milder than those of AndrosteNONE
  • AndrosteNOL – the “icebreaker pheromone” with a mild scent; acts similar to a social lubricant
  • Beta-AndrosteNOL – a social pheromone with a mild scent that is the beta-isomer of AndrosteNOL; reduces stress and enhances bonding
  • AndrostaDIENONE – a stress-relieving pheromone with a musky scent; relieves stress and increases women’s attraction to men
  • Estratetraenol – a romantic pheromone with a faint scent; makes the wearer more attractive and reduces anxiety
  • Copulins – a hormone that is produced by women; boosts sexual attraction and increases testosterone in men

These are just the basics, of course, so be sure to read more about each of these pheromones, paying special attention to the effects they have on each other. For example, AndrosteRONE and AndroSTANone can help balance out the aggressive side-effects of AndrosteNONE, and Estratetraenol can enhance the effects of AndrostaDIENONE.

Taking the time to understand the science behind each individual pheromone is a must if you want to make effective mixes yourself. You’ll thank yourself later for having spent a little bit of extra time making sure you know what you’re working with.


2. Experience (both firsthand and secondhand)

Once you know what each pheromone does, you’ll need to know how it affects you personally. Everybody is different, and that applies to body chemistry too: if you’re already producing a lot of AndrosteNONE, for example, or have a naturally dominant personality, adding this pheromone to your cologne is either going to lead to no effects or bad effects; likewise, if you’re already perceived as friendly and approachable, you probably don’t need much AndrosteNOL in your homemade pheromone cocktail. You have to know yourself well before you can know what pheromone blends will give you the results you want.

You can find out what pheromones work well for you by experimenting with pre-made blends like those available at Love Scent. You can experiment safely with us, as we offer a 100% money-back guarantee on all our products. If a particular formula just doesn’t work for you or is giving you bad results, return it for a refund or exchange it for something that might work better. We’ll help you find what you’re looking for.

Once you have an idea of what blends work for you, you can then either re-create them in your home lab or build on the formula to make it your own. If Alpha-7 is just a smidge to aggressive for you, for example, you can create your own blend that has a higher proportion of AndrosteRONE to better balance out the AndrosteNONE.

Remember, too, that user feedback from other pheromone users is extremely useful. Take a look at pheromone forums, product reviews, and blog posts to see what works for your peers. They might have noticed effects that researchers have overlooked, and give you a better sense of what effects a particular pheromone will have on you.


3. Supplies

Once you’ve done your research and know what pheromones you want to work with, it’s time to start stocking your at-home lab. The necessary supplies fall into three groups:


Love Scent offers a selection of pure pheromones for you to use in your DIY blends. Most you can buy individually in 10 ml (or, sometimes, 5 ml) bottles. You can also look at our Fab 4 Chem Sets, which includes four 5 ml bottles of the most popular pure pheromones: AndrosteRONE, AndrosteNONE, AndrostaDIENONE, and AndrosteNOL. Each bottle comes with an eyedropper top for easy mixing.

Just remember to understand what each of these pheromones do before getting started! (I know we already covered this, but I also said that it bears repeating!)


Cover scents are essential for most pheromone blends. Pheromones usually don’t smell that wonderful on their own (most are found in our sweat and urine, after all, and they do tend to smell like it) and generally need to be masked by a cover fragrance of some kind.

If you have a favorite cologne or perfume that you’ve been using for years, there’s no need to switch things up. Keep using what you like. Just spray it over the pheromones after you’ve applied them.

If you like to experiment with your fragrances, Love Scent can help. We have some cover fragrances for you to choose from, along with brand colognes and perfumes for your perusal. We also have a selection of essential oils for those who like to make their own perfumes using natural ingredients. Take a look at our advice on how to pair pheromones with scent, and let your inner DIY-er run wild!


Once you have a blend to try out, you’ll need somewhere to put it. Some people like keeping their pheromones in eyedropper bottles. If you prefer roll-top bottles or atomizers, you can get them right here. It all boils down to personal preference. Some people like the convenience of an atomizer, while others feel that roll-top bottles waste less of the formula, and others like to measure out exact drops when applying their pheromone blends. Just choose what feels right to you, and what your experience tells you works best.


4. Time To Experiment

Once you’ve read up on all your pheromone science, crafted a formula, and paired it with a cover scent, it’s time to test out your work. Maybe you’ll hit the perfect formula on the first try. Maybe you’ll need to modify it slightly before it gives you the exact effects you want. Maybe you’ll want to go back to the drawing board. There’s only one way to find out, and that way is to experiment.

Remember, we’ve written about properly testing pheromone products in the past, and the advice applies to formulas you’ve developed yourself as much as it does to pheromone products you’ve purchased from a company like Love Scent. Review this advice before you head out to experiment.

When you’re experimenting, pay attention to the responses of the people around you–even the people whose attention you’re not necessarily after. If you’re trying to attract women with an AndrosteNONE-heavy blend, for example, keep a close eye on men too: if they’re getting irritated or aggressive, you need to reduce the amount of AndrosteNONE in the blend or balance it out with a less intense pheromone like AndroSTANone or AndrosteNOL.

Also pay attention to the different parts of the formula people are responding to. The wrong cover scent can keep people away even if the pheromones themselves are drawing them in.

Make notes on everything you observe in those around you and think about how each pheromone is contributing to their responses. If you want a stronger sexual response, or want them to be more relaxed around you, adjust the levels of different pheromones as necessary.

Remember, too, to give it time. If you’re not getting the responses you want the very first time you wear a formula, that might have more to do with the people around you, and what they have going on in their own lives, than it does with you or the pheromones. Pheromones aren’t magic potions, and the human element is strong in every experiment, from pheromone “field tests” to double-blind research studies involving three universities.  Try a blend for a week or so before giving up on it.

One final note: make sure to start out with small test batches before committing to a formula. You don’t want to use up half your Fab 4 kit on a formula that just isn’t going to work for you. Begin with a small amount, making note of the proportions so you can create a larger batch later if you need to. If your field tests and experiments are positive, go ahead and make more. If the formula isn’t right, you won’t have wasted much and won’t regret having to scrap it.

  1. If I bought your pure pheromones, how much pheromone should I put in per 1oz/30ml bottle?

    • That depends on the strength you’re looking for! A good starting point would be 4 mg of pheromones per oz of perfume. When using pure pheromones, that would equal 4 mls of the pure pheromone concentrate per oz of perfume.

      NOTE: We strongly recommend making small test batches first to find the right concentration for you. That will let you find the correct pheromone-to-fragrance proportions that work best for you. Once you have the proportions figured out, you can make a larger amount.
