What Are Pheromones?

Pheromones are chemical substances secreted by all animals to help communicate with members of the same species, primarily of the opposite sex. They are known as nature’s chemical calling card, and help with attraction, both for selection of a mate and for reproduction.

For example, with cats, you have probably seen them rub up against people, corners of doors and walls, and each other. They are rubbing their pheromones in the scent glands in their cheeks to mark their territory and exert dominance. It helps reduce conflict and maintain social order within a group.

Our sense of smell is one of our more powerful of all, and that has developed over the generations. However, it is somewhat less understood in humans than in other animals. Perhaps that’s because we want to think we have more control over our reactions than other creatures do. However, we do both produce and respond to pheromones, and studies have shown they are key in human attraction and social bonding.

Have you ever met someone and taken an instant dislike to them? It’s most likely because you didn’t like how they smelled. It’s not because of the perfume or cologne they were wearing. It’s because their individual pheromones were not pleasant to you. This is not a conscious decision, rather it is innate to everyone. So the next time this happens to you, think about what exactly made you not like the individual. Sure, there could be many other reasons why, but don’t discount your olfactory senses.

Pure Romance understands the power of pheromones, and puts them into all bath and body products of our regular, scented lines for both men and for women, including out perfumes. Our HeLi line does not have them included. If you prefer products without, check out the HeLi Unscented and Lavender & Chamomile selections.

Basic Instinct is our roll-on pheromone formula that reacts to your body chemistry to create a fragrance that’s unique to you. Basic Instinct is unisex and layers effortlessly with your favorite lotions and scents. Roll it on your wrists, behind your ears, and over other pulse points to enhance your natural allure. It helps give you confidence, and if you work with the public, it’s a must to have. Carry it in your purse; have one in your desk drawer at work, and on your bathroom counter. Wear it, and watch what happens!

I retired from the Army in 2016 after 32 years of service, including two overseas deployments. After I got settled, I wanted to start my own business, and Pure Romance quite literally fell into my lap. I love what I do, and the first time a woman approached me and told me I "changed her life," I knew I made the right choice. Pure Romance is more than just toys: We are all about Educating, Empowering, and Entertaining women to enhance their relationships and help them feel better about themselves.
