Androstenone: The “Alpha” Pheromone

Happy Friday, Love Scent fans!

This week, let’s take a look at a very common and very powerful pheromone: AndrosteNONE.

AndrosteNONE, as you may know, was the first pheromone to be identified and studied by researchers. It is a byproduct of our body’s natural production of testosterone, and is produced by both men and women (though it is produced in higher levels by men because of their generally-higher testosterone levels). Its strong effects have made it a popular ingredient in many pheromone products.

Many people think of AndrosteNONE as the “alpha” pheromone. It gives the wearer an aura of authority and confidence, and can improve self-esteem and attitude. It also improves the wearer’s sexual attractiveness to others. Older people, especially older men, also notice that it can help improve energy levels and stamina. And despite the stubborn misconception that AndrosteNONE is only useful to male wearers, many women find that it’s a very useful pheromone for them too, particularly for improving their romantic and sexual lives.

AndrosteNONE does have some downsides, however. Too much of it can be off-putting, both because of its natural smell (most people think that it smells like body odor or even urine) and because it can make the wearer appear over-dominant and aggressive. These overbearing effects can make women shy away from men wearing too much AndrosteNONE, and can make other people become more aggressive and agitated. It is therefore important to use AndrosteNONE in small doses. With this pheromone, less is almost always more.

The combination of sexual effects and potentially aggressive side effects make AndrosteNONE a pheromone that should be worn primarily in your private life. In most cases, it’s not a good choice for wearing to work or professional social events. (If you do wear it in professional or formal situations, make sure to use only a very small amount.) But if you want to improve your confidence in your social life, or improve your sex appeal and charisma in your romantic life, AndrosteNONE is one of the best options you have–as long as you use it properly.

So, how do you make sure that you’re using AndrosteNONE the right way? First, remember: don’t overuse it! If a product contains a high concentration of AndrosteNONE, a drop or two spread among your pulse points is all most people need. Depending on your natural body chemistry, including testosterone levels, you may need slightly less or slightly more. You’ll need to pay attention to the responses you get from those around you and adjust the amounts of AndrosteNONE you wear accordingly. (If people are acting nervous or agitated around you, use less. If you’re not getting any responses at all, use a little more.)

You can also combine AndrosteNONE-based products with other pheromones. A pheromone cologne or perfume with high levels of a social pheromone like AndrosteNOL, for example, can smooth out any rough edges the AndrosteNONE has and lower the chances of bad side effects.

Now, if you’d like to experiment with AndrosteNONE but aren’t sure where to start, we have plenty of options for you. First, let’s cover the Love Scent products that feature AndrosteNONE as either the only ingredient or the primary ingredient. Next, we’ll look at some pheromone products that you can mix with AndrosteNONE to improve your chances of success.


1. Silent Seduction for Men ($17.95)

Silent Seduction contains only AndrosteNONE. It was designed for and is marketed to men, but it is suitable for use by both men and women. The 1 ml trial-size vial contains 0.5 mg of AndrosteNONE–a high concentration for such a powerful pheromone. It’s a good, cost-effective way to test out whether this pheromone works well for you.

Silent Seduction is unscented, and should be paired with your favorite cover scent. Apply a drop or two of the pheromones to your pulse points and spray cologne or perfume over it.

If you want to test out the effects of AndrosteNONE without spending a lot of money, Silent Seduction is the best choice. Order your vial for $17.95 today!

UPDATE: We no longer carry Silent Seduction for Men. Try Alpha-7 instead!


2. Passion Pheromone Attractant for Men ($49.95)

Passion Pheromone Attractant for Men is a good choice for men who want to experiment with a lower level of AndrosteNONE. Its lower concentration comes with a much lower chance of overdosing, making it a good choice for men who are already fairly confident, or who have a tendency to come across as overbearing. It’s also a safe bet for men who haven’t experimented much with pheromones and want to test out a few formulas without much risk of seeing bad side effects.

Passion Pheromone Attractant for Men is already scented with a fresh, pleasantly masculine cover fragrance, so it does not need to be combined with your own cologne. Just apply a few drops to your pulse points and you’re ready to go.

If you haven’t experimented with AndrosteNONE or pheromones in general, and you want a low-risk place to start learning, Passion Pheromone Attractant for Men is an excellent choice. Order a 15 ml bottle for $49.95 today!

UPDATE: We no longer carry Passion Pheromone Attractant for Men. Try Alpha-7, or Super Primal for Her instead!



3. Androstenone Pheromone Concentrate for Women ($49.95)

Androstenone Pheromone Concentrate for Women is an AndrosteNONE-based product that was specifically developed for and marketed to women. It has a lower concentration of AndrosteNONE than a lot of products, so it’s a great choice for women who want to experiment with this powerful pheromone without running the risk of accidentally using too much and intimidating other people.

Androstenone Pheromone Concentrate for Women already contains a feminine cover fragrance, so you do not need to combine it with your own perfume. Apply several drops to your pulse points to start with, and use more or less as needed to see the desired results.

A 1 oz bottle of Androstenone Pheromone Concentrate for Women is yours for $49.95. Order now!

UPDATE: We no longer carry APC for Women. Try combining Super Primal for Her with your favorite perfume instead!


Alpha 7 Unscented Pheromones4. Alpha-7 Pheromones ($59.95)

Love Scent developed Alpha-7 Pheromones years ago so that pheromone users could have an AndrosteNONE-based product that was more balanced than the usual options. It contains a small amount of AndrosteRONE, a milder sex pheromone that helps balance out the potentially aggressive effects of AndrosteNONE. It is therefore a safer and more reliable option than products containing only AndrosteNONE, even though its actual AndrosteNONE concentration is higher than most other products.

Alpha-7 comes in an unscented unisex formula that needs to be combined with your own cover fragrance. Apply a drop or two to your pulse points and adjust as needed.

If you’d like to try out the Alpha-7 formula, the 1 ml Alpha-7 Unscented Mini is available for $14.95. Or, if you’d like to commit to a larger amount, 10 ml bottle of Alpha-7 Unscented is available for $59.95. Try it today!


Primal Instinct Ylang Ylang for Men5. Primal Instinct Ylang Ylang ($69.95)

Primal Instinct is one of the oldest pheromone brands, and Primal Instinct for Men is one of their strongest products. It contains a high concentration of AndrosteNONE, and does not have any other pheromones to balance out the effects. Its overdose risk is therefore higher than that of most of the other products on this list. It’s s good choice for people who need a lot of help improving their confidence or perceived authority. If you are already reasonably confident and dynamic, however, you might want to experiment with a product with lower AndrosteNONE content (or a more balanced content) before trying Primal Instinct.

Despite the name, Primal Instinct for Men is suitable for use by men and women, and both sexes should experiment with it cautiously.  Primal Instinct for Men contains ylang-ylang oil, and does not need to be combined with any fragrance.

You can get a bottle of Primal Instinct Ylang Ylang for $69.95. If you feel ready to try out a very strong product, order your bottle today!

UPDATE: We no longer carry Primal Instinct Ylang Ylang for Men. Try Alpha-7 Unscented with your favorite cologne instead!


And now, let’s take a quick look at some good choices for mixing with your AndrosteNONE.

  1. Liquid Trust: our most popular unscented product, Liquid Trust contains a social hormone that builds trust, reduces stress, and improves interactions between people. It can alleviate the intimidation people may feel when exposed to AndrosteNONE. (Available in a 7.5 ml atomizer for $29.95.)
  2. Primal Women: an unscented women’s product that contains a high level of AndrosteNOL, Primal Women also contains copulins. It’s a stress-alleviating, mood-boosting formula that balances out AndrosteNONE’s harsher side effects. (A 10 ml bottle is $59.95.)
  3. Chikaraa dependable product that contains AndrosteNOL and AndrosteRONE to smooth out AndrosteNONE’s rough edges. Often combined with Alpha-7. (Prices range from $9.95 to $59.95.)
