Now, on to today’s topic: we’re back to helping you build your pheromone toolkit! This week, we’re going to look at atomizers and roll-ons, and which are the better choice for carrying around your pheromones! This is an especially important topic for people who want to make DIY pheromone products at home, or who want to carry a small amount of pheromones with them on the go–whether to a work conference or to the club!

Let’s dive right in!



The main factor in choosing whether you should be carrying your pheromones around in an atomizer or roll-on bottle: that pheromone’s carrier. Most pheromones are either oil-based or alcohol-based, meaning their pheromones are dissolved into either oil or alcohol. There are pros and cons to each carrier type. Let’s look at those now!

First: oil-based pheromones. These pheromones are made with dipropylene glycol, jojoba oil, proprietary oil blends–anything made out of a cosmetics-friendly oil. They’re thicker than alcohol-based products, and you’ll probably feel them for longer when they’re on your skin.

Next: alcohol-based pheromones. These products contain a significant amount of perfumery-grade alcohol. The alcohol is typically mixed with another carrier, such as oil or water. The alcohol content creates a much thinner, runnier product that feels lighter on the skin. This lighter feeling is due to the alcohol evaporating off, leaving the pheromones and fragrance components behind.

So which is better–oil-based or alcohol-based? It depends!

In this case, the question is mostly a matter of personal preference. Some people dislike the feel of oil-based products on their skin, and prefer the quickly-evaporating alcohol-based products. Other people like to feel the products linger on their skin and so prefer oil-based.

Some pheromone fans also swear that oil-based products last longer on the skin, especially during hot days. Oil is certainly harder to sweat off than alcohol, so this is an important factor! You may want to consider oil-based products for your summertime pheromone collection.

So, when choosing between atomizers and roll-ons, you’ll want to consider your carrier preference. Do you prefer the staying power of oil-based products? Or the light and breezy feel of alcohol-based products? Once you’ve decided, you can choose between roll-ons or atomizers–or a mix of both!



Roll-on bottles are the go-to for carrying around oil-based products. Oil-based formulas don’t do well in atomizers, because the formula is too thick to be made into a fine mist or spray–it just comes out in one big splash! But the roller ball in roll-on bottles easily distributes the oily formula right onto your skin.

Some pheromone fans say that roll-on bottles allow for greater accuracy when applying your pheromones. Rather than spraying a big cloud of pheromones onto your wrist or neck, a roll-on bottle allows you to pinpoint exactly where you’d like to apply the pheromones!

Are there downsides to roll-on bottles? Well, some people do find them less convenient if you’re trying to freshen up pheromones on the go. Untwisting the cap and then rolling the product onto your skin is a little more fiddly than simply uncapping a spray bottle and spritzing your pulse points. But it’s only a few seconds’ difference!

So, if you prefer thicker, oil-based products, roll-on bottles are the way to go! Order 5 ml Roll-On bottles today for just $1.50 apiece, and you’ll soon have the perfect bottle for carrying around your custom oil-based blends and DIY mixes!



Atomizers, also called spray bottles, are the preferred bottle for thinner alcohol-based mixes. These thin mixes will leak out of a roll-on bottle very easily, and they’ll come out much too quickly during application. But spray bottles create a fine mist that you can apply to your wrists and throat.

While roll-on bottles arguably allow for greater accuracy, atomizers allow you to easily cover a very wide area with pheromones. While some people prefer to pinpoint a very specific spot on their wrist or throat, you may prefer to give yourself greater coverage all over your neck, chest, and wrists! If that’s the case, an atomizer full of an alcohol-based product will probably be your preference.

What about downsides to atomizers? You should be aware that, because they typically carry thin alcohol-based pheromones, atomizers are slightly more prone to leakage. You’ll want to be extra careful to keep them very tightly capped and to store them upright when not in use. Again, this is more to do with the types of formulas they carry rather than the atomizers themselves, but it’s an important thing to keep in mind!

So, if you plan to make thin alcohol-based mixes, atomizers are the way to go for you! You can order our 10 ml Pocket Atomizers for $9.95 apiece. These sturdy atomizers come with a protective metal shell that will keep the glass bottle insert safe on the go!


And there you have it, Love Scent fans!
