Now, on to today’s topic: questions from you, our customers! Specifically, questions about applying pheromones!

Properly applying pheromones is a key part of successfully using them. We’ll teach you where to apply them, how to make sure you’re using the right amount, and how long they’ll last once they’re on your skin!

Let’s dive right in!



We get this question frequently, both from new customers and customers who want to make sure they’re using their existing pheromones properly. And it’s a good question! You’ll want to make sure you’re applying pheromones to the right places to help them work their best.

The best places to apply pheromones are your pulse points–in other words, the places on your body where you can easily feel your pulse. If you wear colognes and perfumes, you’re probably applying those fragrances to your pulse points. The most commonly-used pulse points are:

  • The wrist
  • The throat
  • Behind the ear

Other, less-commonly used pulse points are:

  • The chest
  • Crook of the elbow
  • Behind the knee
  • The ankle

If you wear fragrances regularly, you probably recognize one or more of these places as your go-to spot for applying perfume or cologne. But why apply fragrances, including pheromones, here?

Well, the common wisdom among perfumers is that pulse points act as natural diffusers. The theory is that your skin is slightly warmer in these places, which pushes the scent particles (or pheromone particles) further into the air. This gives the people around you better exposure to the scents, and helps pheromones work better!

So, when applying pheromones, make sure to apply them in a spot where you can easily feel your pulse–or multiple spots! For example, you can put a few drops or sprays of pheromones on one wrist, gently rub your wrists together, and then dab your still-damp wrists against your throat. This gives you coverage across multiple pulse points and gives the pheromones plenty of opportunities to get out into the air and start doing their job!

Okay, so now you know where you should be applying pheromones. But how much should you apply? Read on to find out!



Using the right amount of pheromones is another crucial part of using them properly. Use too much, and you might agitate the people around you. Use too little, and they can’t do their job. So how much should you be applying?

The answer: it depends! Remember, you’re already producing your own natural pheromones right now. Young people typically produce more pheromones than older folks. Very physically fit people produce more pheromones than less-active people. Even your diet can influence your natural pheromone levels! So, depending on a few factors, you might need more or less of the pheromones than someone else.

This means that finding the right amount of pheromones for you can take some experimenting. We recommend taking a “less is more” approach to begin with, which helps avoid a pheromone overdose. This means you’ll want to be applying pheromones sparingly to start with–e.g. only 1 or 2 sprays or drops, spread over multiple pulse points–and only using more if you know you need it.

How will you know you need more? Well, if you don’t see any effects on the people around you, that could be a sign that you need to up your pheromone dose, so add more (1 spray or drop at a time) until you’re seeing the effects you want. If increasing the amount doesn’t help, it’s time to try a different pheromone: the one you’re using might not be the best fit for your body chemistry.

So, in summary, start by applying small amounts of pheromones, and increase as needed until you see the desired results. Being cautious at the start will help ensure that your pheromones work their best and don’t give you results you don’t want!

All right, now that you’ve applied the pheromones, how long are they going to last on your skin? Let’s take a look!



If you’re familiar with fragrances, you know that scent compounds don’t last forever on the skin. This is due to your skin’s natural defense mechanisms: as soon as anything touches your skin, whether it’s dirt or a fragrance or even a moisturizing lotion, your skin begins to break it down. Some things take longer for your skin to completely break down than others.

On average, pheromones will last 6-8 hours on the skin before they’re totally broken down. You might notice your pheromones lasting for more or less time due to variations in body chemistry. We do recommend washing the old pheromones off your skin before re-applying them to avoid any buildup or skin sensitivity.

Now, some pheromone fans have found that certain pheromones last longer than others–namely, oil-based pheromones. (Oil-based pheromones include Alpha-7 Unscented, NPA for Men and NPA for Women, Primal Women, and a few others.) The thicker oil base stands up better to sweat than thinner, alcohol-based pheromones. If it’s hot outside or you know you’re going to be sweating a lot, then an oil-based pheromone may last longer for you than an alcohol-based option. Something to consider!

So, if you’re applying pheromones in the morning, you should be all set until late afternoon or early evening. Then just wipe down your pulse points before re-applying with a fresh batch of pheromones!
