You might have heard the word, but what exactly are pheromones? 

The word pheromone derives from the ancient Greek words phero (to bear, carry) and ormé (impetus). This term was coined by two German scientists in the 1950s. It describes the chemical signals that trigger responses in members of the same species. There are few types of pheromones that serve a different purpose. There are alarm pheromones, food trail pheromones, sex pheromones, territory markers, and many others that affect behavior or physiology of a particular species. Since pheromones are widely used by animals for communication and to attract mates, scientists also believe that pheromones may play similar role in humans.

Humans posses a tiny organ situated in the nasal cavity that serves as the body's receptor for pheromones. This organ is called the vomeronasal (VNO) or Jaconson's organ. It sends the signals that it receives from the pheromones to the human brain. The brain dictates the response of the body, which becomes evident in the human behavior.

Many studies were conducted to find out how pheromones work in humans. Interestingly, Swedish experts have used the latest brain imaging technology and discovered that both, homosexual males and heterosexual females, reacted in the same way when they were exposed to male pheromones. This and many other studies are widely documented in medicinal journals. It is no wonder then that the industry took notice of this research. 

 Pheromones belong to the sphere of the non-verbal communication. They work in a "mysterious" way to attract one human being to another and are what we call the "chemistry" of love. 

Many people are successfully using pheromone products to enhance their own likability in social settings or to attract sexual partners. Pheromone products help enhance our own chemical "signature" making us more attractive to others independently from our physique. People who normally have difficulty finding a partner report incredible success with the use of supplemental pheromones. 

There are pheromones for men and for women, both heterosexual and gay. They come in unscented versions or as perfumes and colognes, and are to be used externally for that extra something that makes one more attractive in social settings or, if desired,  absolutely irresistible to others.

Give it a try and see what happens.
