All right, on to today’s topic: some common questions about DIY pheromones! Let’s get right to it!
1. CAN I ADD PHEROMONES DIRECTLY TO MY COLOGNE OR PERFUME?
Yes, you can! It’s a great way to add the element of pheromones to your favorite fragrances. That said, there are a few steps to complete first!
For starters, we don’t recommend simply dumping of a bottle of pheromones into a bottle of your favorite perfume. Different pheromone products have different pheromone ingredients and concentrations. Adding 10 ml of, say, Alpha-7 Unscented to a bottle of your favorite perfume will have a very different end result than adding a 15 ml bottle of NPA for Women, and it’s possible that neither will create a good end result for you!
To make sure you’re making a good, usable mix, we recommend making small test batches first. (More on that in a moment.) Make these batches in a separate container so you can keep track of your different mixes, including ingredients and pheromone-to-fragrance ratios. Use an atomizer for thin mixes using alcohol-based fragrances, and roll-on or eyedropper bottles for mixes using oil-based fragrances.
Once you’ve figured out the right proportions for you, you’ll be ready to make a larger batch of your mix! That way, you’ll always have it when you need it.
One final note: we only recommend adding unscented pheromones to your colognes or perfumes. A scented pheromone might clash with your favorite fragrance.
2. HOW MUCH OF _____ PHEROMONE SHOULD I ADD TO MY PERFUME?
The answer to this question depends on several factors: what product you are using, how strong of a mix you want, and how strong of a mix you need for your personality/body chemistry/circumstances. These variables are the reason we recommend always making some test mixes to find the right proportions for you.
So, where to begin? Well, if you are using a pheromone with a low-to-average pheromone concentration, we recommend starting with a 3-to-1 fragrance-to-pheromones ratio. For example, if you’re making a mix using NPA for Men or Super Primal for Her, add 1 drop of pheromones for every 3 drops of fragrance. Test that mix for about a week (advice on experimenting with pheromones can be found here) and keep track of your results. Increase or decrease the pheromone concentration as needed until you find the right balance for your needs.
If you’re using a pheromone with a higher concentration, such as Alpha-7 Unscented or pure AndrosteNONE, start with a 5-to-1 fragrance-to-pheromones ratio. It’s especially important to start with a low ratio when you’re working with strong sex pheromones, because they can have bad side effects when you use too much. Make your test mix, experiment for about a week, and adjust the proportions as needed.
Once you’ve found the right proportions for your particular mix, you can make a bigger batch. Be sure to keep notes throughout the testing process so you remember which mix worked best for you!
3. CAN I MIX _____ AND _____ PHEROMONES TOGETHER?
Yes, you can mix different pheromones together! Combining complementary pheromones is actually a great way to bring out the best effects of multiple pheromone products. You can either apply them separately, or mix them together in a separate bottle. There are just a few things to consider!
First, keep the effects of each individual pheromone in mind. For example, Alpah-7 Unscented is a very strong sexual pheromone, and pure AndrosteNONE is as strong as sex pheromones get. Mixing the two together would create something extremely dominant, intimidating, and aggressive–not what most people are looking for! Instead, try mixing one of these strong sex pheromones with one or more social pheromones that will smooth out its rough edges while keeping its positive qualities.
Second, keep other details in mind. As we said above, we don’t recommend adding scented pheromones to perfumes and colognes, and we don’t recommend mixing different scented pheromones for the same reason. Different fragrances can easily clash, and two things that smell great separately won’t necessarily smell great when mixed together. When mixing multiple pheromones, make sure only one of them is scented!
Third, we recommend testing out a mix before making a big, pre-mixed batch. Just as we don’t recommend dumping a bottle of unscented pheromones into a bottle of your favorite perfume, we don’t recommend dumping multiple bottles of pheromones together until you’ve tested out different proportions. (For example, try a 5-to-1 ratio of Love Scent Pheromone Oils to pure AndrosteNONE and see how that works for you!)

4. DOES ADDING PERFUME OR COLOGNE TO PHEROMONES “RUIN” THEM?
In short: nope!
Combining pheromones with fragrances usually helps the pheromones work better. As you probably know, a lot of pheromones don’t smell particularly good on their own. Most smell like sweat. Some smell like urine. Not exactly a sexy, appealing aroma, right? Luckily, you can easily mask that natural pheromone scent with a cover fragrance.
And don’t worry: a perfume or cologne won’t hurt the pheromones. They don’t break down or degrade in perfumes, colognes, or other scents. Cover scents don’t “hide” the pheromones, either, thanks to the VNO–a specialized pheromone-detecting organ located in your nose.
So don’t hesitate to use perfumes and colognes with your pheromones! Chances are good that your pheromones need a cover fragrance, and your favorite scents could benefit from the many effects of pheromones!
5. CAN I ADD PHEROMONES TO MY LOTIONS / MOISTURIZERS / ESSENTIAL OIL BLENDS / BODY OILS?
Yes, you can! You don’t have to limit yourself to commercial perfumes or colognes when experimenting with DIY pheromones. Many different cosmetic and skincare products are fair game!
The process for adding pheromones to something like a body lotion or aromatherapy blend is the same as the process for adding pheromones to a perfume or cologne. To review:
- Step one: choose your pheromones, keeping their effects (and any pre-added cover fragrances) in mind.
- Step two: make a small test batch to test out different pheromone-to-carrier proportions.
- Step three: adjust the proportions until you find the right fit for you.
- Step four: make a final, larger batch so you can always have your customized mix on hand!
Before you know it, you’ll have quite the collection of customized pheromone products! Make a sexy, romantic perfume for date nights, a relaxing lotion for bedtime, a stimulating essential oil-pheromone blend for workouts…the possibilities are endless!
