Happy weekend, Love Scent fans, and happy Father’s Day to all the dads reading this!
Summer officially begins next week, at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, which means a lot of us will be enjoying backyard cookouts, beach trips, sunbathing, and other summer fun. So now is a good time to review how pheromones are affected by temperature. We’ve discussed using pheromones in cold weather in the past (and our friends in the Southern Hemisphere might want to review that information now); today, let’s take a look at how hot temperatures affect your pheromone use, and explore some hot-season pheromone options.
First, here are some general things to keep in mind when you’re headed out to summer beach parties and barbecues, or just headed out the door to work:
If you have a preference for strong sexual pheromones over milder social pheromones, you should be aware that hot summer temperatures increase your chances of pheromone overdosing. Many pheromones, strong sexual pheromones included, are naturally found in our sweat. Hot temperatures cause us to sweat more, which means more natural pheromones. Adding more pheromones when you’re already producing plenty of your own can quickly lead to a pheromone overdose.
As you probably know, using too many pheromones can backfire. You won’t smell good, the people you wanted to attract will find you too intimidating, and the people you wanted to get along with could turn aggressive toward you. Not exactly the effects you’re looking for, right?
So, how to avoid overdosing? Our recommendation is to skip the strong sexual pheromones when the weather gets hot. Products like Primal Instinct, Alpha-7, and the Androstenone Pheromone Concentrate for Women contain higher concentrations of strong sexual pheromones, so you might want to save those for cooler days, or at least days when you’ll be shielded from the hot weather.
Also, keep in mind that even the milder pheromone formulas (which we’ll look at in more detail in a moment) can be overused. In summer, less is definitely more. Use small amounts of pheromones to begin with and only add more if you’re sure you need it.
Alcohol vs. Oil Bases
We’ve discussed the topic of alcohol bases and oil bases before. In reality, neither base is really superior to the other; both are great at preserving the pheromones, and both act as great carriers. It mostly boils down to personal preferences: some people just don’t like how oil feels on their skin, some people have a skin sensitivity to alcohol, and so on.
That said, some people have found that oil bases last longer in summer, as oil can be harder to sweat off than alcohol. So keep an eye on whether you’re sweating your pheromones off–and keep an eye on your cover scents, too! Those are important for effective pheromone use.
All right, now that you’ve got some general tips, let’s take a look at some specific pheromones that are good for hot weather!
1. Chikara (starting at $7.95)
Chikara Pheromone Cologne for Men is one of the most well-balanced products in our catalog. It’s heavy on the social pheromone AndrosteNOL, with just enough AndrosteRONE and AndrosteNONE to enhance your sex appeal without any aggressive side effects. Of course, remember that you’ll naturally be exuding more AndrosteRONE and AndrosteNONE as you sweat, so even balanced formulas like Chikara need to be used sparingly in hot weather!
The popular scented version of Chikara Pheromone Cologne for Men is available in gel packets (starting at $9.95), and three sizes of the liquid formula: a 0.5-ml sample ($7.95), a 1-ml trial size ($14.95), and a 15-ml spray bottle ($59.95). If you’re particular about your cover scents, Chikara Unscented is also available in a 15-ml spray bottle ($59.95). There are many ways to test out this popular formula, so order today!
2. Alter Ego (starting at $9.95)
Like Chikara, the Alter Ego formula is a good balance of social and sexual pheromones. Also like Chikara, it’s best to use this formula sparingly in hot weather, as it contains some of the same pheromones you’ll be sweating out in the heat. Start with a drop or two and only add more if you’re not seeing effects.
Alter Ego is available in a scented cologne for men and a scented perfume for women, both of which are $49.95 for a 7.5 ml eyedropper bottle. Both the men’s formula and the women’s formula are available in gel packets, starting at $9.95. Give them a try today!
3. Scent of Eros (starting at $9.95)
Developed by the pheromone researcher Dr. James V. Kohl, Scent of Eros is a great formula for summer thanks to its higher social pheromone content. The sex pheromone it contains, AndrosteRONE, is also one of the gentler of the sex pheromones, so overdosing would be less of a problem. You can wear Scent of Eros with comfort and confidence even on hot days.
Scent of Eros is available in scented versions for men and women, and an unscented version for those who prefer to choose their own cover scents. Each 10-ml roll-top bottle is $49.95. (Note: we are currently out of stock on the women’s 10-ml bottle, but we will be receiving more soon!) You can also experiment with this formula with gel packets, which start at $9.95. If you haven’t tried this formula yet, this summer is the perfect time!
4. Super Primal for Her ($59.95)
Super Primal for Her is an AndrosteNOL–based formula that can be worn even in hot and muggy weather. Social pheromones like AndrosteNOL have very few negative side effects, so you can wear them in all kinds of weather without worrying about an overdose.
At $59.95 for a 2 oz bottle, Super Primal for Her is one of the best values in our catalog. You can use this formula on its own or mix it with your favorite cover scent. You can also mix it with other pheromone products that contain sex pheromones to help balance out the effects. Try it today!
5. W.A.G.G. ($69.95)
W.A.G.G., short for “What A Great Guy,” is another one of our AndrosteNOL–based formulas. It’s particularly helpful for alpha-male types who need help being less intimidating and more approachable, but it’s a good formula for just about anyone–especially during the hot summer months.
You can pair W.A.G.G. with your favorite cologne or perfume, and you can use it in combination with other pheromones. A 10-ml bottle can be yours for $69.95. Order yours now!
Bonus: Zellous Essential Oils (starting at $4.95)
Our selection of Zellous Essential Oils are great companions for the summer. They make excellent natural cover scents for your unscented pheromone mixes, and several of them–including Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, and Lemongrass–can be used as natural insect repellents during camping trips, backyard cookouts, and more.
That’s all for today, Love Scent fans. We’re wishing you a great summer! And, again, happy Father’s Day to all the dads in our Love Scent family!
