Can fragrances truly enchant strangers and ignite feelings of love? Over the past year or so, there have been several viral pheromone perfumes cropping on up on social media websites such as TikTok.
In fact, TikTok has become a hotbed for all things #pheromoneperfume, amassing an astounding 100+ million views. Countless content creators are singing praises for these fragrances, often dubbing them as “seduction in a bottle.”
But the all-important question remains: Do they actually work?
I’ve written about a few of these “viral pheromone perfumes” in the past…
… and the general consensus is NO.
But this is largely due to being low quality, mass produced products, rather than the pheromones themselves being ineffective.
Some of these low quality, viral pheromone perfumes & colognes include:
- Pure Instinct Pheromone Oil
- Basic Instinct by Pure Romance
- Heaux Cosmetics (Essence Of Ecstasy, Liquid Finesse, Habitué Provocateur, PleasHER)
- These 2 appear to be some of most popular. But several others I’ve come across on Tik Tok include: Venom for her, Primal Master Pheromone Oil, True Allure, Fleuro.
Today, many individuals have embraced the allure of pheromone-infused perfumes. These fragrances are touted as powerful love magnets, and enthusiasts eagerly share their secrets on which scents prove most effective in either attracting new flames or keeping the sparks alive with their current crush.
However, when seeing these products on Tik Tok videos (or other social media websites), you must take it with a grain of salt!
The vast majority of these videos are simply to make a quick buck, and will people post positive reviews / videos regardless of whether they actually work or not.
As a reviewer of high quality pheromone products, I’ve tested countless of these no-name, “fly by night” pheromone perfumes over the past decade.
And without a doubt, 99% of them are completely useless, overpriced, and simply do not work.
Even products that have been around for a long time that are popular often use influencers, shilling, fake reviews and other deceptive techniques to sell their products. The buyer will be unaware they are wasting money until it arrives, and works nowhere near as well as promised.
This is why it’s best to remain skeptical of viral pheromone perfumes that seemingly come out of nowhere.
Identifying High-Quality Pheromone Colognes & Perfumes
When looking for a high-quality pheromone product, there are several key factors to consider:
- Pheromone concentration – A quality pheromone cologne should contain a concentration of human-identical pheromones like androstadienone, androstenol, and androstenone. Most of these low quality products actually do contain them, however, the creators of these products are not enthusiasts and experts like the vendors recommended at House Of Pheromones.
- Third party testing – Legitimate pheromone cologne companies will have their products independently tested by third parties to verify pheromone content and effectiveness. Look for products that provide certificates of analysis, or atleast have demonstrable evidence that the formulator has experience in the industry.
- Positive expert reviews – Read trustworthy reviews such as those available here at House Of Pheromones. I’ve personally tested have tested 100’s of products over the years. Amazon is full of fake and paid reviews in order to sell these low quality products, and reviews on the product websites are easily falsified.
- Established brands – Stick to well-known pheromone brands that specialize in pheromones and have been around for 5+ years. Typically, most of these “viral pheromone perfume” companies that come out from time to time are all using the same basic ingredients, with different packaging and marketing. The long-time recommended vendors are actual enthusiasts in the art of pheromone formulations. This means high quality ingredients, carefully balanced mixes, and more ingredients to create significantly more powerful effects.
- Money-back guarantee – Any reputable company will stand behind their product with a satisfaction guarantee. This shows they are confident it will work. All the vendors recommended on this website usually have refund periods of atleast 60 days.
- Price – Higher quality, trustworthy products are more expensive than most of these popular viral pheromone perfumes. This is because the concentration is usually significantly higher. However, there is another important aspect to this: They are more thoroughly tested to get specific effects, usually contain 7+ pheromones that are carefully balanced, and created by people who have been using them for many years. They are not just simple 3 pheromone mixes created overnight for the mass market.
- Purpose – Most of the low quality viral pheromone perfumes are only made for one thing – attraction. However, the most powerful pheromone vendors are typically small scale, and because of their expertise, are able to create unique products which can enhance not only attraction… but also positively influence social interactions, give the wearer higher perceived social status, boost confidence, and even seemingly make the wearer appear more attractive.

So is there any truth to these popular TikTok reviews of viral pheromone perfumes?
It’s no surprise that some TikTok users have expressed their dissatisfaction with the results (or lack thereof), while using these pheromone fragrances.
As much as a fragrance (with or without pheromones) may strive for universality, our scent preferences remain highly subjective, influenced by our individual tastes and cultural backgrounds. This is even more true when these Tik Tok products are just mass produced rubbish designed to extract your hard earned money.
So in short — no. Even when there are supposed effects from these viral pheromone perfumes, most of them are highly exaggerated as TikTok creators receive commissions for promoting them. They are incentivized to make them seem like good, effective products, even when most of them aren’t.
Viral Pheromone Perfumes Summary
There is simply no reason to trust these reviewers, because they are all just trying to make a commission.
At House of Pheromones, I’ve taken sometimes over a year to create the most in-depth pheromone reviews available on the internet, covering everything from ingredients, effects, and detailed interactions with people I know — as well as don’t know.
They’ve helped me in my personal life tremendously and given me opportunities I couldn’t dream of before with gorgeous women, social interactions, and professional success.
Now with the advent of short form video and viral video content, it’s ridiculous that these low quality viral pheromone perfumes are gaining traction. There are companies that have been around for many years that don’t use such deception, and would highly recommend them over these “overnight success” products.
