Happy Friday, Love Scent fans!

Today, we’re continuing with our “pheromone how-to” series! This time, we’re taking a look at an important topic: testing a pheromone.

Now, last time, we went over choosing a pheromone. Once you’ve chosen the product you believe is right for you, there’s only one thing left to do: test it!

Testing a pheromone is not difficult, but it does require you to pay attention to the people around you so you can see how they’re reacting to the pheromone. That way, you’ll know if the pheromone is doing what you want, or if you need to make adjustments–or try something else!

Let’s dive right in!



Before testing a pheromone, it’s important to review what you want the pheromone to do for you. You probably already thought about this when you were choosing a pheromone to begin with, so you might know already! But it’s good to think it over again, especially if you have more than one pheromone in your collection.

So…what do you want your pheromone to do for you? Do you want it to attract people to you sexually? Or make people view you as a trustworthy, dependable authority figure? Or do you want it to help you and those around you feel more relaxed and upbeat? Maybe you even want it to do all of these things?

It’s helpful to have clear, specific ideas about what you want your pheromone to do. That way, you can easily gauge other people’s responses to the pheromones, and make a final decision about whether you’ve found the right product.

Remember, too, that different products have different effects. So your goals for one pheromone in your collection might not be the same as your goals for a different one. You probably don’t want Alpha-7 and Liquid Trust to do the same thing, for example!

Once you’ve got your goals down, it’s time to actually begin experimenting!



Once you’ve got your pheromone and know what you want it to do, it’s time to take it for a test drive. Now you’ll get to see real-world results!

First, apply your pheromone. We recommend using a small amount at first, to lower the risk of overdosing. (You can always add more later!) Apply a dab or spray to your pulse points, which are the spots on your body where veins run very close to the surface of your skin. They include your wrists, your throat, and right behind your ear. Some people also like to put a dab on their chest, their elbows, or behind their knees.

One other thing: remember the fragrance! Most pheromones don’t smell very good on their own, so if you’re using an unscented pheromone, spritz some of your favorite fragrance over it after application.

Once you’ve applied your pheromones (and fragrance, if necessary), it’s time to head out the door and experiment!

First of all, pay attention to how people are reacting to you while you’re wearing the pheromone. Are they having the responses you hoped for? Or are they treating you the same as they always do? Or are their responses negative? Responses might be mixed, with some people responding the way you hoped and some people responding negatively. This is normal, because different people will react to pheromones in different ways!

If you’re having trouble making sense of people’s responses to you, we recommend brushing up on your body language. You’ll have to be able to understand people’s nonverbal communication if you’re going to really know how they’re responding to the pheromones! Open, positive body language is generally what you want to see, or respectful body language. Fearful or agitated responses are what you want to avoid!

Now, when you’re testing a pheromone, we recommend experimenting with it for at least a few days, if not a few weeks. Wear it around as many different people and in as many different situations as possible. Not everyone reacts to pheromones the same way, so it’s good to get a variety of responses to better understand how the pheromone is working for you.

It can be helpful to keep notes on your experiences while you’re testing a pheromone. This will help you keep track of how people responded and what their responses were. After you’ve worn the pheromone for a while and know how people have been responding to it, you can look back on those notes and decide if the experiment has been successful!

And with that, we can move on to the final step!



So, you’ve been experimenting with your pheromone for a while. Maybe you knew right away that it was a great fit for you: you got the responses you wanted, no unpleasant side effects, and you’re feeling great about your choice. If that’s the case, awesome! You’ve found the right pheromone for you, and can go on enjoying it.

But if the results were mixed, you can reflect on what worked and what didn’t, and decide on any adjustments you should make.

For example, let’s say you were testing a pheromone that you got specifically to wear on dates with someone you’re interested in. They didn’t really respond to it, or worse, seemed off-put by it. But other people–perhaps in a grocery store, or just out on the street–were responding well to it. This means that the pheromone isn’t necessarily the wrong one for you, but the wrong one for your date. It can be a good everyday pheromone, but not one to use with your current crush!

Or, let’s say your crush was off-put by your new pheromone–and so was everyone else. They seemed agitated or shy around you when you wore it, and were less likely to interact with you. In this case, the pheromone might be the wrong one for you–or you might need to wear less of it, or mix it with a different pheromone that will smooth out its rough edges.

Or maybe you just didn’t see any responses from anyone. In this case, we recommend first trying more of the pheromone. If you started with one drop or one spray, bump that up to two or even three, and see how that amount works for you. You may well start seeing responses at that point. If not, it might be time to go with a different pheromone that works better for you.

All in all, when testing a pheromone, it’s important to be objective. Maybe you got the responses you want, and maybe you didn’t. Maybe you’ll end up needing to choose a different pheromone that you didn’t expect. Whatever the results of your experimenting showed, it’s important that you keep an open mind and make adjustments when necessary!

And if you decide that the pheromone you chose just isn’t for you, don’t worry! Love Scent has a 100% money-back guarantee. If it doesn’t work out, you can return it for a refund or exchange!
