All right, on to today’s topic: your questions about cover scents!

As you may know already, cover scents “cover” the scent of pheromones. Many pheromones, especially sex pheromones, do not smell particularly good by themselves. Most people say they smell like sweat or other bodily fluids. That is why we recommend using cover scents with just about any unscented product, with only a few rare exceptions! (Remember: “unscented” means that the product does not contain a cover fragrance, not that it has no scent!)

But some people worry that cover scents will interfere with the pheromones. In fact, whenever we speak with people new to pheromones, they express concerns that using a cologne with pheromones will make the pheromones useless. So let’s put those concerns to rest!

The most important thing to remember about cover scents is that they do not reduce the effectiveness of pheromones. In fact, pheromones and regular scents aren’t even detected by the same parts of the nose! Pheromones are detected by the vomeronasal organ, or VNO:

Diagram of the human olfactory system. The vomeronasal organ is highlighted with a red circle. It is located right above the roof of the mouth.

The VNO only detects pheromones. Other scents, from perfumes and colognes to baking cookies to flowers, are detected by other parts of your olfactory system. So adding a layer of cologne or perfume over your pheromones won’t interfere with those pheromones at all. The VNO will still detect the pheromones, your other scent organs will detect the fragrance, and all the information will be sent to your brain.

In fact, far from interfering with pheromones, cover scents help them work better. As we said above, strong sex pheromones have a very unpleasant smell, and that smell will drive people away if you don’t cover it up. No one wants to stand next to someone who smells like sweat or urine, right? But you can easily mask those unpleasant odors with a perfume, cologne, or body spray. This increases the likelihood that someone will stick close to you, thus increasing their exposure to your pheromones.

But masking unpleasant odors isn’t the only way cover scents can help your pheromones work better. Our sense of smell is the most emotionally-charged sense we have. The olfactory system connects to two very important parts of our brains: the amygdala, which processes emotion, and theĀ hippocampus, which is responsible for cognition and memory. Other senses, such as our sense of sight, don’t have these same links to memory and emotion. So the way you smell is just as important, possibly more important, than the way you look.

So, while just about any perfume or cologne will get the job done, you might want to take a bit of extra time in choosing your cover scent. Think of it as a crucial component of your pheromones rather than a random add-on. If you have a go-to scent that you know people love, go with that: it will enhance the pheromones. If you’re trying to impress someone, and you know they’re partial to certain types of scents (such as florals or musks), picking that scent type will help you make a long-lasting impression. The right fragrance will make a huge difference!

In summary, cover fragrances do not interfere with pheromones, but do help pheromones work better. They can trigger powerful memories and emotions and lead to strong connections with others. On the flip side, choosing the wrong cover fragrance can make people avoid you: no one will hang out next to someone whose smell reminds them of something unpleasant. So pay attention to how people respond to your pheromones and to your cover scent! Your fragrance choice can really make or break your pheromones’ effectiveness.

So what qualifies as a cover fragrance? It doesn’t necessarily need to be a commercial perfume or cologne. Many people use essential oil blends as cover fragrances. (Essential oils have a huge range of emotional and physical effects, so they can add new layers to your pheromone mix!) You can even use baking extracts like vanilla or almond extract! Really, anything that masks any unpleasant pheromone odors qualifies as a cover fragrance. Go with what you like, and what your partner (or potential partner) likes.

If you’re in need of a cover fragrance, we can help you out! We have a variety of perfumes, colognes, and fragrance concentrates for you to choose from. If you prefer more natural scents, you can check out our essential oils. We also have atomizers and roll-ons for mixing your pheromones directly with your cover scent!

There you have it, Love Scent fans! We hope we’ve answered any questions you have about cover scents and pheromones. Remember to always use a cover scent with unscented pheromones, and to choose it carefully! It could make the difference between pheromone success and pheromone failure!
