What Does Research Show? Do Pheromones Work?
Can the claims of hormone-enhanced perfumes and colognes be believed? Do pheromones work in making relationship easier and more successful? The jury is still out on this topic, as scientist still examine many living organisms and people continue to have differing opinions.
Science does know that pheromones occur and that they do work in many social situations in all sorts of organisms, from bacteria in order to insects to sea creatures. Androgynous bacteria lay 'scent' trails that others of the species can follow, feminine butterflies could attract males from as much as six miles away, and sea urchins release detectable amounts of hormones into the surrounding waters during reproduction season. The species-specific secretions have been studied for the different signals they can deliver.
The question is whether or not these secretions can be remote, mixed with carrier oils or other ingredients, and used topically to any real effect. It is now commercially viable to make use of this sort of hormone in pest control products, and there are lots of valuable, ecologically-friendly products generally speaking use. This success which lends validity to the use of attraction and repelling hormones would seem to indicate that the substances do work when separated from their original hosts.
After all, if sonar works for bats and dolphins and also for the world's naval forces, why would it not be true that sex hormones that attract mates in the bug world would signal similar actions at work on the human level? It is known that some individuals seem to have potent 'sex appeal' that physical appearance alone does not are the cause of. There are people who keep their attraction to a man or woman long after their first bloom of youth has faded.
Some Suspect that the Effects of this Type of Hormone is Short Lived
Too much so to be captured in a topical scent. However, it is true that those pest regulates are effective when suspended within balls and bags from trees, without repeated and frequent applications. Testimonials, no problem finding online, show that there are many people who feel that the products have improved their dating experiences and opened up avenues to meet new individuals who might never otherwise have been found.
