Have you heard about the recent phenomenon of pheromone perfume? This lust-attracting scent may have piqued your interest but what actually is pheromone perfume or cologne and most importantly, does it work? Keep reading to find out.

What is pheromone perfume?

To understand pheromone perfume, let’s first break down the pheromone biologically.

Pheromones are chemicals that animals and humans secrete to communicate with each other. The most commonly known human pheromones are sex pheromones which are unconsciously used to attract another individual. In perfume, “pheromone perfume” is a type of fragrance that uses synthetic pheromone notes to mimic this process, sparking attraction and affecting human behaviour.

Does pheromone perfume work?

There is no conclusive evidence to suggest that pheromone perfume can actually change or impact human behaviour. However, the idea of lust-inducing scents for romantic occasions is a way to find the perfect scent for you. Whether you want to get yourself in a romantic mood, discover a new inviting scent for your partner’s enjoyment or a sensual scent for a night partying with friends, we share our top picks below.

Our favourite pheromone perfume picks

Prada Candy Eau de Parfum Spray

Opt for a sexy, seductive scent full of life and passion. Prada Candy is one such scent. A cocktail of musks, a typical pheromone-inducing note, compliments the notes of Benzoin and Caramel. Laotian Benzoin is addictive and sensual, with warm, sweet, balsamy notes evoking delicately vanilla-scented honey meanwhile caramel is delicious, joyfully feminine and sweetly addictive. Spritz over your favourite pyjamas for a relaxing night for one.

Glow by Jennifer Lopez

Try a celebrity scent, and there’s no one better for the job than Jennifer Lopez. JLo Glow Eau de Toilette Spray 50ml is a signature scent combining neroli, orange blossom and pink grapefruit in addition to the sexiness of rose, sandalwood and amber. The finishing touch includes clean notes of soft musk, jasmine, orris and vanilla. Intimate and exciting, if there ever was a ‘pheromone perfume’—this is it.

Laurelle Sexxy Shoo Red Eau de Parfum Spray

Package an inviting, pheromone perfume in a stylish bottle to double up a purchase for two uses. For this choose the Laurelle Parfums Sexxy Shoo Eau de Parfum, designed to make women feel sexy and care-free enclosed in a funky red shoe bottle design. Could this combination be the best pheromone perfume for women? Either way, the combination of floral, fruity, musk and vanilla makes for a sweet yet sensual scent.
