Pheromone scams have been around forever. This industry is growing with some excellent vendors who make top notch, highly advanced formulas to make our lives better, but you need to be extra careful about who to trust.
… Because they’re also outnumbered by a very large number of scammers and snake oil salesmen.
Lets face it: the internet is a breeding ground for greedy, relentless vendors who think they can sell shitty products and make money off the unsuspecting.
… the sad part about it is that they actually DO make money.
And as a result, people are turned off from trying pheromones, because they think they’re all the same snake oil they bought before.
In a moment, we’ll talk about major signs you need to look out for when searching for new pheromone colognes.
Personally, I would recommend you just contact me first if you’re not sure.
Or avoid it completely if it’s not featured on the House Of Pheromones…
… because I have already investigated most of the top brands and products you can currently get.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible for me to buy every single product and test it out thoroughly (although if you know some of the technical information about how pheromones work, you can avoid most of this).
Another thing you should do beforehand, is to figure out how to choose your ideal products.
I wrote this guide about how to choose the ideal pheromones scent for romance — and there are several more coming soon to cover all the different categories of products.
Anyway, there are common threads among pheromone scam products which will help you avoid getting ripped off if you venture into unknown lands.
Most of them are pretty obvious to me and immediately set off my bullshit detectors.
But considering how many people still manage to fall for them, I’ve decided to write a quick guide to on what to look out for, before deciding to spend your hard earned money.
Let’s talk about sign #1.
Sign #1: Fake “review” websites that hype up crappy products
Although House Of Pheromones is also a review website, I make it very obvious that I review products honestly, and make it a point to list any negatives that I find.
I even advise my readers to AVOID certain products if using it might be out of their comfort zone (even if the products are good – Bad Wolf for example).
Also, writing long articles is hard to do when you make up a complete load of crap, which is why they only come out once in a while.
They take time to explore and investigate to pick out every possible effect, so you can get a feel for it before you even pull out your wallet.
However, some “review” websites blatantly lie and create hype around a product they probably haven’t even used.
They will write anything about any product in order to make a buck.
Quality vendors have a variety of products, designed for different purposes.
What I mean is that a REAL pheromone company will usually have multiple products.
Any reasonably experienced pheromone user knows that different pheromone colognes are designed for different purposes.
They can be used for all sorts of professional, social, or romantic situations.
However, companies like “Pherazone” who are clearly in it just to make money – flog their ONLY product with ridiculous claims like this: “MORE DATES, MORE SEX and INSTANTLY ATTRACT THE PARTNER OF YOUR DREAMS”.
That’s the difference between real vendors like Alpha Dream, Liquid Alchemy Labs, PheromoneXS, and the like.
Always be weary of websites that don’t mention actual high quality brands or do their own reviews.
As you can see from the content written on the page, it was simply copied from the actual website and rewritten in his own words.
It has no actual research or testing, apart from parroting the same rubbish from the actual Pherazone sales page.
But you’ve still got to be careful – here’s another one, called “Pheromones Planet” that actually DOES mention some quality products…
However, they lose their credibility because it makes absolutely no sense for Pherazone to be compared to an actual vendor (in this case, Alpha Dream) who has multiple products… and to even claim that Pherazone is more effective LOL.
These are just a handful of many “review” websites out there designed solely to make money off unsuspecting readers.
The only reason “Pherazone” even gets ranked so highly on every scam artists website is because the product costs almost a whopping $100, and commissions are likely at 30%-40%.
As long as you understand how review websites work, you can avoid the scammy ones by simply following my instructions.
Read the reviews carefully, and if you’re still not sure feel free to contact me.
Sign #2: Hyped up advertising and unrealistic claims
One of my pet peeves online is when I end up on sales pages with such blatantly misleading advertising that I want to throw up in my mouth.
This is also rampant in the “Pick Up Artist” (PUA) industry where hype and lies work like crazy – because the guys are so desperate to become masters with women.
Sales pages often make claims like:
- “Magic” questions to make any woman fall in love with you (it will never happen)
- How to completely eliminate rejection (also will never happen)
- How to seduce any woman (yeah, I’d like to see that… if I was an idiot)
- Attract women regardless of whether you’re fat, short, ugly, bald, broke (possible, but memorizing stupid tricks or pretending to be a REALLY COOL GUY (sarcasm) isn’t the answer)
With pheromones, scammy vendors will often make claims that simply aren’t true.
For example, on the Pherazone sales page, they have a video that plays automatically with a woman who unconvincingly says…
“Even if you’re short fat ugly, with no money, and with the personality of a dead toad, you can still score big time with the use of pheromones.”
Um no, it doesn’t work like that.
Here’s another snippet from the sales page for “Nexus” that makes my blood boil.
On this site I advise all my readers that pheromones ARE powerful.
But they’re not a “cure all” for your attraction, social, or confidence issues.
The pounding of these types of claims among vendors with poor quality products really makes my head spin.
When a company promises that you’ll have “endless, beautiful women suddenly approaching you” (or anything similar), it should set off red flags.
Don’t waste your time and money on unscrupulous hype artists that will say anything to make a sale.
One more thing you should be weary of: 10x, 100x, 1000x “more powerful”… pheromone scammers use this to entice new and interested buyers.
Do NOT trust a vendor that claims that their product is 10x, 100x, 1000x more powerful than others on the market. One of the more popular ones that have been floating around is the 10x and 10:13 formulas from Athena Institute – even though it looks quite “official”, they are just media wave riders attempting to take advantage of credible-sounding studies.
There is NO set standard for what “concentration” any particular pheromone product needs to be.
Just imagine spraying on a whole bottle of Alfa Maschio or another high androstenone type product?
(androstenone is one of the most alpha/sexual pheromone molecules out there).
In fact, using pheromone colognes excessively can cause an OD (opposite of desired effects).
This is because people can only “process” a pheromone signal if they understand it.
If you are putting off pheromones that 100 people could put together collectively, you will get ignored, ghosted, or treated badly.
Sign #3: Fake social proof and “studies” from medical or news authorities
Another rampant tactic to try and give credibility to poor products, is the use of “media” or authorities which are widely known.
Scam artists will attempt to use news sources, medical, or social studies that have been done on pheromones to pass off their products as legitimate.
Why is this misleading?
Because studies that have been done on pheromones doesn’t mean that the product or company specifically had their products used in those studies.
So while individual human pheromones such as androstenone, androstenol, androstadienone etc. may have been studied and reported on…
It does NOT attest to any specific companies product quality.
That’s why it irks me when companies use logos (as shown below), “as seen on TV” badges, or links to studies that have nothing to do with their actual product.
There is also a 20/20 video that floats around on the internet and rears its head on every pheromone cologne scammers website. I believe it’s called the “twins” experiment or something close.
It is not representative of anything useful apart from proving pheromones in general having an effect on attraction.
It also has nothing to do with any specific vendor.
Final thoughts On fake pheromone colognes and their hype artists & shills
Note: There are some companies which use this kind of marketing (like True Pheromones), however, they do provide products that actually work.
Unfortunately, the internet has given way to snake oil salesmen who have access to a huge number of people.
No matter what, they will stick around and continue scamming people who are either just curious, or genuinely looking for a way to improve their lives.
The only thing I can do is help people who might be easily misled by offering outstanding alternatives.
The most important thing to remember is that pheromones are an extremely powerful super charger to your personality.
BUT, that doesn’t mean you can have low confidence, self esteem issues, no charisma, and still expect to attract your dream girl.
You will still need to develop attractive personality traits like confidence, flirting skills, humor, etc.
No, it doesn’t mean you have to be “Mr Perfect”…
However, developing high quality personality traits will simply add to the “overall package” which is only amplified with the use of kickass pheromone colognes.
So when a vendor makes ridiculous claims, or tries too hard to sell their products… it’s a safe bet that it’s complete rubbish.
Remember the old adage… “if it’s too good to be true, it probably is”.
On the other side of the fence, if a vendor (like all the vendors I recommend here) make more reasonable claims…
… such as being able to enhance or deepen your relationship, improve your social status, give you the appearance of being more attractive (this is proven) etc… then it is likely they know what they are talking about.
Most legitimate vendors will also have different products, for different purposes as mentioned earlier.
Sexual attraction, romantic attraction, social, and status type products are the main categories that tend to be part of most line ups. Why?
Because pheromones and attraction are complicated topics, but also the most profitable.
Unlike the rip off artists, they don’t just flog the “sexual attraction” part over and over again – as shown in the article above.
Anyway, I hope this clears up a lot of confusion and helps you save time, money, and frustration.
Thank you for reading,
