The Gilroy Oceans 13 refers to a scene in the movie, ‘Ocean’s 13’, where one of the members, Linus, has to distract someone… with the use of The Gilroy pheromone patch.
Here’s a quick explanation of how this is “supposed” to work (according to the movie anyway):
The Gilroy Patch is a small odor patch you place on skin, or under any article of clothing.
When placed on the skin, the Gilroy Pheromone patch slowly releases pheromones for attraction purposes.
Here is the scene from Ocean’s 13, where “The Gilroy” is used:
This is one of the most popular videos if you’re looking for pheromones in popular culture, and how they have gained popularity over the years.
The funny thing is, True Pheromones actually has a product called “The Gilroy”, attempting to capitalize on this trend… I’m not going to go into the actual product itself, because I’m about 90% sure this was created as a “tongue in cheek” product.
Early in my journey of discovering pheromones, extensive testing, and trialing of various pheromone colognes & perfumes, and different product types, I received it as a freebie.
Unfortunately, there was nothing notable about my experience with the product, so if you’re looking for the Gilroy Patch review, it’s definitely not going to be here – and you’ll probably be very hard pressed to find any legitimate review on it.
I suspect the soft paper-y feel of the patch messes up the diffusion, and you would be far better off just applying it to your skin as usual (or on clothing if you have sensitive skin).
Even if it does contain a meaningful dose of any specific pheromones, this is the biggest problem as it renders the product completely useless.
Despite that, I decided to revisit the product page after all this time (in an effort to be more “complete” as a trusted source on pheromones).
Here is what the True Pheromones page has to say about their version of The Gilroy Oceans 13 pheromone:
Break The Ice Without Saying A Single Word.
With “The Gilroy” patch, you can immediately make women (or men) feel completely comfortable around you. If you’ve ever worried about what to say on a first date (or even ANY date) or how to say it, you can rest easy because “The Gilroy” guarantees that your date will do all of the work for you.
Alpha & Beta Androstenol (3,000 mcg) is the primary “ice breaker” pheromone used in “The Gilroy.”
Tap Into The Natural Instinct For Protection And Safety.
“The Gilroy” contains 1,000 mcg of Alpha & Beta Androsterone, a pheromone that helps others feel safe around you, tapping into the natural protection-seeking instinct that all humans seek in a partner.
Now, it’s not just like the movies…
And the reason why is simple.
We’ve perfectly matched the pheromones in “The Gilroy” patch to create sexual energy and attractiveness that isn’t overpowering. You’re not going to have your partner immediately falling over you, but they will feel safe, secure, and like they’ve known you forever.

True Pheromones claims to use 2 pheromones – androstenol and androsterone in the product.
It does not differentiate between the alpha/beta variants, as there are 4 of them:
I would expect a mix containing these pheromones to create the effects of higher status, and higher levels of sociability. However, these are typically not “attraction” specific pheromones…
… they are used to drive or balance the effects of more aggressive pheromones such as androstenone.
By that logic, it would seem they did really attempt to try and infuse pheromones into sticky skin patches.
However, I feel like “The Gilroy” perfume would have worked much better (yes, even if it is a simple mix).
I don’t completely agree with all the ways companies attempt to advertise their products, and True Pheromones does exaggerate a little bit.
In fact, I quite like their simple, but very effective product line (as standalones, as well as adding for combos for more complicated phero-concoctions).
However, this attempt at recreating the Oceans 13 pheromone was a a bit of a reach, and probably did not spend enough time to truly develop something groundbreaking – not that we would expect such things from pheromones anyway.
The Gilroy review may need to be done in the future, but until then, this is all we’ve got to work with.
We already know pheromones are powerful, but they’re not magic!
FAQ’s About The Gilroy Oceans 13
What is the Gilroy in Ocean’s 13?
The Gilroy is a patch used by Linus in the movie ‘Ocean’s 13’, where it is used in attempt to distract someone while they defraud a casino. In the scene, the Gilroy Patch is applied to Linus’s neck, and when he opens the door, the target in question is quickly affected after smelling pheromones on him.
Does the Gilroy really exist?
Yes, there is a version of “The Gilroy” available at True Pheromones. However, this product is a gimmick and attempt to capitalize on a trend that was sparked by the Ocean’s 13 movie. It is nowhere near that effective, and even strong pheromone colognes and perfumes do not work in that way.
Do pheromone patches work?
In theory, yes. In practicality, this isn’t a MORE efficient method to disperse pheromones than simply using a cologne or perfume version. Applications on skin or clothing are likely to work much better than having pheromones applied on a small patch, and then applying it on your neck.
What does Linus put on his neck in Ocean’s 13?
Linus uses “The Gilroy”, a small white patch in order to disperse pheromones onto someone, in an attempt to distract them with seduction. We can see the “cloud” of pheromones emanating from his neck, and then being inhaled by the woman in the movie.
Is The Gilroy for sale?
Yes, True Pheromones is the only company currently selling their version of this product. There is no “The Gilroy” perfume in case you are interesting in purchasing it.
Is The Gilroy Patch real?
It is real, however, it does not work like a powerful attractant as it shows in the movie Ocean’s 13. The only Gilroy Patch is a gimmick product from trusted vendor True Pheromones. True Pheromones reviews are generally pretty positive, but this time it wasn’t up to scratch.
