  1. Shelly, that post was hilarious and wonderful! Fantastic report. ...Wow. I've been using pheros & reading reports for just under three years, and that is the most direct hit I have ever seen. She basically described exactly what was being done to her without realizing it. That's amazing.
  2. Airborne is a placebo, just so you know. You're better off with Time Release Vitamin C and zinc if you can stomach it. You need to eat some starch before you take zinc because it's rough on your stomach, but it works. Echinacea, which is the "active" ingredient in Airborne, was proven several times to be a placebo, most notably by the New England Journal of Medicine in 2005. It's the old "I took some and then saw mild improvement over time, so it must have worked" things.
  3. LOL at "outside voice"...but what on God's green Earth is a KSPBF? Since H&S seems to be appropriate for similar goals (it's probably healthier to have your attitude, but I kind of do want everyone to love me) I'll probably stick with that for now. Not ruling out Treasured Hearts for the future, though. Hee! You crack me up.
  4. Thanks, Carrie! I missed you! Rosebud! Did you steal a baby?! I had been planning on getting H&S, so I'm glad to hear that recommendation. It seems like less of a gamble than Treasured Hearts because I recognize all the ingredients in H&S except Epi-Androsterone. But I also don't know what the heck 5a-Androstenol is, which means I don't recognize or have experience with (that I know of--I realize we're not aware of every component in Androtics's mixes) two out of three ingredients in Treasured Hearts, which makes me a titch nervous about trying it. H&S sounds like an amazing mix, though, save the one ingredient I don't recognize. I also notice that it doesn't say what is in the Tranquility Potion? Am I supposed to be so tranquil that I don't care what is in it? Oh, if I didn't already love that woman...
  5. I actually just read Mara's brilliant post about the rumors regarding different batches/strengths of EoW, so please disregard my previous question! Thanks, Mara!
  6. I'm back and have missed you all so much!! I've been lurking intermittently, but for awhile didn't have the money to buy any products and really didn't think I had anything to contribute to the discussion, so I am so glad to be back. After the betrayal of a certain group of people who ran the forum where many of us met, I am so incredibly grateful that we have a kinder, wiser place to gather. Thank you Mara, Danna and Ail! <3 Okay, enough gushing! I have to tell you guys, switching from Androtics to LP is a bit of a shock because I thought I was really knowledgeable, and now I'm just seeing a few chemicals I've never heard of. I'm still trying to wrap my head around everything! Now, I want to talk about the very gendered (or more accurately, sexuality-oriented) pheros EST and A1. I finally, after years of wanting it, was able to purchase a bottle of EST from here (I can hear Ail cheering all the way across the pond!). I also have an almost-full bottle of Instant Female Magic from Androtics. Now, my first question--this is kind of moot because it appears that Androtics has taken IFM off their site anyway, but I absolutely do not want to give those people a single cent of my money ever again. So when this bottle runs out, is there anything in the LP arsenal that may be an appropriate substitute? I don't recall seeing anything with A1 here, but poor Dolly had to point out the link to EST to me twice, so I don't trust my own eyes. *rolls them* IFM is primarily used by me for self-effects when I have a low moment, but I also work in a library where the staff is all women, so staff meetings and staff-related outings are a good place for it because there will be no men there. I'm concerned about where to get it when I need more. If I can't do so here, LS apparently has A1 straight. If I were to apply that, do we think I'd get similar results? Since it's in a similar glass bottle with a dropper to that of EoW, I'm assuming it's alcohol based, which is actually preferred, since at work I use it as a social pheromone and would want more diffusion amongst the ladies. Second question! I have read a few of the studies that say gay men react to A1 like straight women do. One of them said EST had no effect on them which I thought was interesting, because Ail has reported effects on other straight women...obviously it's not going to stir romantic feelings, but you would think the "this lady is pregnant and needs to be protected/cared for" vibe would still affect people even if they're not attracted to women. So I'd appreciate any thoughts on that scientific finding. Does anybody have a negative reaction to EST? Spinning off that, I have a lot of gay friends--could I use IFM with them the same way I use it with other women? Say I have a gay friend who's feeling down and I want to cheer him up, or I'm in a group of gay friends and I just want chatty happy fun times. Will IFM work? Does it have the same depressive effects on lesbians that it has on straight men? If so, wearing it to a gay bar that is frequented by any and all members of the LGBT community might be a bad idea. Has anyone ever tried a mix of A1 and EST around certain groups of people? What happens when they're worn together?
  7. ...Wow. This seriously throws me for a loop, because of all the talk over the years about how people thought they bought bottles from different batches and the smell was drastically different, etc. I need to process that for a second! I echo everything Lor said.
  8. Has EoW gotten stronger? My bottle is from two years ago and it's strong but it doesn't smell that bad, like I'd have trouble covering a single drop.
  9. Good Lord; I'm glad I know this. Everyone always talked about EST as being the one pheromone with a natural odor that is actually pleasant, so I would have thought nothing about spraying it in my hair. I know not to do that now, jeez! I can't afford the straight stuff at the moment anyway...maybe in a few months. I have Cuddle Bunny on order, though. :banana055:
  10. Great report, Dolly...wow, what an a**. It's great that you stood up to him like that, though. Good going.
  11. Thank you, ladies! Ail, I've missed you, so it's great to have a place to correspond.
  12. *waves* Hi, PheroTalk ladies!
  13. Hello! My name and location should be obvious from my username, but...I'm Laurie and I live in New York. I've been lurking for quite awhile as I've been a PheroTalk user since January 2007. Finances are tight, but I hope to invest in some of your pheromone blends soon, as your prices are amazing and thanks to Androtics I have a lot of friends here on your boards! Happy Spring! <3 ETA: Oh...I'm 21 and have just graduated from college this month.
