Complementary Pheromones: A How-To Guide

Happy Friday, Love Scent fans!

First of all, we’d like to announce this week’s Weekly Special! For the next week, you can save 50% on a bottle of pure Androsterone!

AndrosteRONE (6 ml)

Androsterone is a confidence-boosting, mild sex pheromone that works great on its own or as part of a mix. It has many of the same benefits seen in stronger sex pheromones, but has minimal bad side effects. It’s a great starter sex pheromone for people who want something dependable and easy-to-use. It’s also great for pheromone experts who haven’t had luck with other sex pheromones and need something better suited to their body chemistry and personality.

Like all our pure pheromones, our pure Androsterone has the highest pheromone concentration possible: 1 mg of pheromones per ml of carrier fluid. At higher concentrations, pheromones become unstable and re-crystallize very easily. But our pure pheromone concentrates remain stable even over long storage periods, letting you create custom pheromone mixes for years to come.

Our pure pheromones also feature a special carrier blend that resists evaporation loss. It’s a mix of perfumer’s ethanol and DPG (a cosmetics-grade oil). The oil content prevents evaporation and increases the products’ lasting power on the skin. The ethanol keeps the product thin and easy to work with, meaning you can blend it with any other pheromone or fragrance you like.

With the combined benefits of their high concentration and specially-designed carrier, our pure pheromones are some of the best pheromone products you can find. They were originally developed with pheromone experts in mind, since it can take a while to get the hang of using something so potent. That said, if you’re relatively new to pheromones but are committed to learning what it takes to make them work their best, pure pheromones can be a great choice for you too!

And, for the next week, you can get a 6 ml bottle of our pure Androsterone for $12.45! This is a good pure pheromone to start with because of its mild effects, and a great addition to any pheromone collection. Order a bottle today!

All right, on to today’s topic: complementary pheromones!

In this post, we’ll answer three questions:

  1. What are complementary pheromones?
  2. How do complementary pheromones work?
  3. How do you choose complementary pheromones?

So let’s get started!



First things first: what are complementary pheromones? Simply put, they’re pheromones that bring out the best in each other. They enhance each other’s best qualities while reducing any unpleasant side effects they may have. By combining two or more complementary pheromones, you can create an end product that is greater than the sum of its parts.

One thing to clarify: when we say “pheromones” in this context, we mean single-molecule pheromones rather than pheromone products. So we’re talking about Androstenol, Androstenone, Androsterone, and so on, not pre-mixed pheromone products like Chikara or Primal Women. (If you want tips on pairing pre-mixed pheromone products with each other, we have some advice here.)

Working with pure, single-molecule pheromones can seem intimidating, but with some basic knowledge of pheromones, it’s actually not that difficult. We do recommend practicing a bit with different pre-mixed pheromones so you can get a sense of what pheromone types work best for you–whether you have better luck with sexual or social pheromones, and so on. (We have a guide on working with pure pheromones here for those interested in learning more.)

Once you’re comfortable working with pure pheromone concentrates, you can create fully customized pheromone mixes tailored to your exact needs. And choosing complementary pheromones is a great way to make sure your mix gives you the best possible responses.

So how do complementary pheromones benefit each other? Well, there are two main ways:

  1. Enhancing each other’s positive qualities
  2. Reducing each other’s negative side effects

If you’re interested in complementary pheromones that enhance each other, you should look at different pheromone molecules with similar (but not identical) effects. For example, Androstenol improves the mood and reduces stress, while Androsterone boosts confidence and self-esteem. When you combine the two together, these positive qualities build off each other. A mix that combines Androstenol and Androsterone will have you feeling confident, positive, and ready to take on whatever life throws at you.

If you’re interested in complementary pheromones that reduce each other’s negative side effects, you should look at molecules that don’t have many overlapping qualities. For example, Androstenone is a potent, intense, often aggressive sex pheromone. It can give off the impression of dominance and control. These qualities can be overwhelming for a lot of people, so Androstenone can be tricky to use by itself. But pairing it with a social pheromone (like Androstenol) can smooth out its rough edges, masking its negative effects and letting the positives shine through.

In each case, complementary pheromones improve each other’s effectiveness. They help each other work better and give you a better end result than you’d get when using each individual pheromone by itself. Whether they’re doing this through enhancement of positives or reduction of negatives, the end product is always an improvement.

So how do you go about choosing complementary pheromones to pair with each other? Read on!



Choosing complementary pheromones isn’t difficult, but it does require some knowledge of the pheromone molecules themselves. You have to know what their qualities and effects are before you can know what to pair them with.

You can read about each pheromone in detail in our Pheromone Focus series. We’ll give you some basics now, too:

  • Androstenone: the most potent sex pheromone; sometimes called “the alpha pheromone.” Improves confidence and sex appeal. Very strong, very sexual, with a relatively high overdose risk.
  • Androstenol: most popular social pheromone; sometimes called “the icebreaker pheromone.” Elevates the mood and reduces stress. Works well as a social lubricant.
  • Androsterone: mild sex pheromone. Improves confidence without giving overly dominant impression. Enhances sexual attractiveness. Minimal bad side effects and low overdose risk.
  • Androstadienone: male sex pheromone. Enhances masculinity and sex appeal, but can have a negative effect on men’s moods. Should be used sparingly to avoid depressive self-effects.
  • Estratetraenol: female sex pheromone with romantic, emotional effects. Enhances femininity and improves the mood. Minimal bad side effects, and especially beneficial for couples.
  • Androstanone: similar to Androstenone and Androsterone in that it has sexual effects. More aggressive than Androsterone, but less aggressive than Androstenone. Medium risk of overdose.
  • Copulins: very potent female sex pheromones. Boost sex appeal and improves a woman’s sexual self-confidence. Strong odor and medium-high overdose risk.

All right, now that you know the basics, let’s think about how to choose complementary pheromones. Remember, you can use complementary pheromones to enhance each other, or to reduce each other’s negative qualities. Think carefully about a pheromone’s effects, and what you want it to do for you, when choosing something complementary to pair it with.

Here’s an example: you want to use Androstenone to improve your sex appeal. But when you wear it on its own, it’s too aggressive. You’ve noticed that it does more to chase people away than attract them. But you like the confidence it gives you, and you’ve seen people expressing interest from afar. If you could just reduce its aggressive effects, you know it could get you good results.

In this case, you should pair the Androstenone with something that reduces its negative qualities. Since it’s intimidating people, you should pair it with something relaxing. That will help people overcome the intimidation and actually approach you. You choose to pair it with Androstenol, which you know puts people in a good mood and reduces their stress. This will help them see past the dominant effects of the Androstenone and give you better results.

Here’s another example: you’re using Estratetraenol to try to attract someone you’ve been interested in. It’s helped you form a strong emotional bond, but you want the relationship to get more physical. Since the Estrateraenol doesn’t seem to be helping with that, you decide need to add something more sexual.

In this case, you know you have a few options. You decide to try Androstenone first. It definitely brings a sexual element, but also gives you an overly-confident impression that chases people away. So you try copulins instead, which improve sex appeal without creating an aura of dominance. The copulins give you the result you’re looking for.

As you can see, it takes a bit of knowledge to find the perfect complementary pheromones. It can also take a bit of experimenting to find the right combination. But once you’ve found the ideal combination, you can expect some spectacular results.

So, in summary, choose complementary pheromones based off the effects you want to see. Think carefully about an individual pheromone’s positives and negatives when choosing another pheromone to pair it with. A little forethought and some time spent trying out different combinations will be worth the extra effort!


In conclusion, complementary pheromones are a great way to get the most out of your pheromone collection. It requires some working knowledge of pheromones to get things right, but the time you spend educating yourself will be time well-spent. We hope you experiment with complementary pheromones soon!
