If you’re looking for a REAL “Pherlure review”, you’re in the right place. There is no shortage of shills, fake review sites, and hype surrounding this mass marketed piece of junk.
If you’ve known me for any length of time, you know that scams, hype, and straight lies are one way to get on my last nerves.
Yes, Pherlure is just one of many…
But it has a special place in my “shit list” because of the extreme amount of BS they’ve made up surrounding the product (I’ll explain shortly).
Some people think I write very scathing, undeserved reviews (such as the review I did on Androtics Direct).
But, in my point of view, why should I let scammers continue scamming people?
Especially when we’re talking about spending good, hard earned money on splash on bullshit like some of these mass marketed products.
Before I got “clued in” about how to find and avoid scam pheromone products, I got sucked into buying some pretty sketchy items…
… one of which includes Pherlure.
Long story short: It doesn’t do anything… I tested it early on, and then tested again after I had more experience with pheromone products
Apart from having a decent scent, it is absolute rubbish.
There is literally nothing to say about the product, because it is so utterly useless.
In fact, I had contemplated not writing this review at first.
… but later felt that if people were searching for Pherlure reviews, then I might be able to help someone save their money (and support a REAL vendor that delivers good products).
But I’ve simply had enough of unscrupulous vendors who think they can make any promise under the sun with no consequences.
I did the same thing to Nexus pheromones, and a few others that are on my pheromone “hit list”.
In those cases, I simply write what I experienced and my thoughts on them.
There are also people who claim that the product DOES work (but take it with a grain of salt)…
However, you’ve got to keep in mind that there are plenty of shills working for Pherlure (and other companies along the same lines), which makes it even more untrustworthy than it already is.
However, they are particularly persistent…
Below, you will see some of the shills comments I’ve received – as well as other places where they rear their ugly heads (forums and such).
Shills are paid to scour the internet and promote/embellish/make up lies about the product in order to build credibility and make sales.
Take this for example:
On PheromonePro (old site), I had received several comments which had the SAME IP address, but with different names.
When I choose to approve comments, I can see the “IP address” of whoever left the comment.
An IP is just a virtual address for your computer – it can be used to identify where you are located (city/internet service provider/other vague details).
In this case, the shill made up a fabricated review, and then made another comment saying that apparently it “works”, and that I should remove my article…
… however, they were from the same user (as you can see from the same IP addresses/computer) LOL.
Yeah, some companies will sink pretty low to try and pass off low quality products.
Unfortunately, Pherlure is just one of many.
There are literally dozens of these types of overhyped, junky pheromone products that exist online…
… even some scientists who were supposed to be trustworthy (like Dr. Cutler perhaps), resort to this type of hype artistry just to line their pockets a little more.
And there are also fake “review” websites promoting the product because it offers generous commissions on referred sales (just search Google for “Pherlure reviews” or “Pherlure scam”).
… these websites that try to pass it off as a good product, are greedy internet marketers who are trying to make a quick buck.
Although in recent years, they have cleaned up their act in terms of providing a much less spammier sales message over the last few years.
However, in the past they were still some of the biggest BS artists in the industry…
Pherlure has been involved in the complete fabrication of “university studies” to give their products credibility
You heard right. As if the fake review websites weren’t sketchy enough, they literally made up their own human pheromone molecule…”di-dehydroepiandrosterone”.
… and then FAKED “studies” on it.
Note that there is a dehydroepiandrosterone, or more commonly known by enthusiasts as DHEA.
But this takes something that could be partially true, and then spins its own “research” to provide misleading “studies” on the products effectiveness.
After I exposed it on PheromonePro, they had removed it from the wayback machine (it makes backups of websites, however it can be removed the site owners request — which they did).
Here is an excerpt from one of the fake “sources” I saved earlier:
“Subjects were supplemented with Di-Dehydroepiandrosterone in a fragrance marketed under the trade name “pherlure” (n=43) or a placebo fragrance (n=41) for the 12 weeks… The total journalized sexual intercourse activity levels increased in the Di-Dehydroepiandrosterone group by 62.4%, respectively, in contrast to the placebo group which increased by 2.8%”
Unfortunately for them, someone had followed up with University of Chicago and confirmed there was no such study done
There was no “62.4%” increase in sexual activity, because the molecule doesn’t exist, and even if it did…
… there would be NO conclusive way to actually get to that number.
It was clearly pulled out of thin air for marketing purposes.
Also, in the past they had tried to make up their own “sources”, linking websites ihealthjournal.com, wondersinscience.com, and also didehydroepiandrosterone.info (all of which are no longer available).
The last website had expired some time later – and someone recreated it to expose their very sketchy business etiquette
As you can see, they have lost ALL credibility as a serious pheromone product.
If you we’re looking for a review on Pherlure, I hope you can see through their lies by now and avoid buying from them.
Perhaps in the last few years they’ve reformulated and made a product that does SOMETHING, even if it still sucks.
Either way though, I’ll never buy from them again – simply because I despise scam artists and actually have morals.
I doubt they care enough to make something decent, since there are always going to be people that don’t know any better.
Heck I even fell for the hype at one point.
Let’s wrap it up with a quick Pherlure review
- The product simply doesn’t work (it had no effects to speak of)… During my initial testing of it from about 3-4 years ago and recently (1 year ~), I received absolutely NOTHING in terms of hits. Some people consider smiles and light flirting to be hits, but this happens with or without pheromones… so no, it doesn’t count for anything.
- Uses scammy, hyped up advertising. They also straight up LIED about “university studies”, and then had the gall to create other websites “proving” that their product works. It obviously doesn’t, or they wouldn’t have to make up their own sources… there would be legitimate websites such as House Of Pheromones taking a closer look at it.
- Uses shills (fake accounts), and marketers to make fake websites promoting Pherlure. Like I mentioned earlier, searching for reviews or anything related will bring up plenty of fake websites hyping the product up. These are made purely to rip people off and are not genuine reviews.
- The only half way decent thing about it is that it has an “okay” scent. It smells kind of cheap, but at the very least it’s not awful. You could however invest in a proper scent rather than supporting these scammers. In fact, a high quality cologne would probably get you more positive attention than this fake pheromone product anyway!
After several years of being in the game, I’ve lost all my patience for “vendors” that just can’t deliver.
The information is out there for people who really put in the effort to create advanced, unique, and new products…
… by not even attempting to create a decent product, it is a slap in the face in terms of all the testing, research, and reporting we as pheromone users do because we LIKE doing it.
Not just to make a few bucks off the unsuspecting.
Their shills, the fake “Pherlure review” sites, and all would be completely unnecessary if they had a decent product in the first place.
If you happen to stumble upon this review, I hope you decide to support some of the vendors that are reliable, and consistently deliver awesome products that work.
