  1. I've been eagerly waiting for the last few days for the "reopening"...I want patience and I want it NOW! Seriously, any news on when things will be open and what new delights Mara has for us?
  2. I really like Creole Man (amongst other ones), but I would like to get one with a phermone blend in it. Is there anything similar or would I need to just have phermones added to Creole Man? If so, what one(s) would you suggest. This is a "date night" sort of thing. I have Shark Whisperer for work (and love it) and Top Dog for those days when I just need to be...well, the Top Dog. Thanks, Mark
  3. "Frat pack"? Well, fraternity brother, yes. He is a great guy and good friend and absolutely LOVES the colognes that Mara made for us. As did everyone...huge hit.
  4. Spartan, welcome aboard here...ladies, please treat him gently, he's a good friend of mine. This is the perfect place to ask what works and what doesn't. Remember, though, that pheros are not just "cologne with a plus"...they have specific effects and wonders to the animal we call humans. Ask any and everything, here. As you know, I'm still very much a newbie here, but they are good teachers.
  5. Well, I know what fragrance to wear around a certain woman that I want to captivate. Hmmm...does that mean that I have to leave buttons on my shirt unbuttoned, or I should button my shirt all the way to the top so she has more work to do... conundrums abound!
  6. You know...I think I'm getting addicted to the variety aspect of this. I got a couple of scents, and got the "bonus pack" with Creole Man in it so that I could see if I like it. I love it and a friend said it is "delicious" (whatever that means...you never can figure out what women mean sometimes!). She said that it would be good for me when I go out on dates. Now, I need to add an order of this one next time I put in an order. I think that I will soon need a cabinet just for colognes...damn you Mara!!!
  7. Heading out tonight with the bros so I just grab one of the samples at random (still experimenting). I have then separated into "date" and "social" so I grab Iconic Tonic from the social bag. About 15 minutes later, I feel almost manic and to of the world...18 again? Wow! I think that is what people mean when they say phero-bombed. Great effect for a night our with the guys.
  8. OK...let's start out by saying that I'm still (and will be for a while) a newbie in all of this. I do have one question, that is a stirring around in my head. I know that some pheromones do work on yourself as well as others...some are designed to be uplifting or mood enhancers. That is their design, and I get that. I have seen several posts by people who are wanting to ramp up the other person's desire for them. Would that also work on you to ramp up your desire for the person that you are with, or is it like tickling yourself - since you know it's coming, the head knowledge cancels out the effects? This is purely speculative on my part...not because of anything that has happened, but just out of curiosity...I guess it started out with me thinking that if a guy is wearing it, then he'd be hot for any woman that passed by...but then again, some say that guys are like that all the time, anyway
  9. Man...she stops by and STILL won't even drop a hint as to what is coming out. Silently stalking....
  10. Gotta get my stalk in before the stuff goes on-line...wait - that didn't sounds right...you know what I mean! I'm a newbie, you have to forgive me...lol...
  11. Such a wicked mind you have. And, here I am thinking that V-Day will be all sweet and romantic. Personally, I think we should just all give in and send Mara our credit cards and tell her how much is left on them so she can max them out for us with all of the delicious scents she has concocted. That would save me the agony of figuring out which ones I want...
  12. Hmmm...now where can I find a willing wench...I mean lady...to test out the scents that I try. Lol...the work ones are easy. It is the "play" ones that need an objective person. One of my best friends is a lady...I'm sure that she will be brutally honest with me. She always is. Thanks.
  13. Sounds like something I would like...I think this or "Maniac" (ok...not being made any more, but it does sound interesting) would be a good "night on the town" scent and "Intellectual Man" for sitting down for coffee or just talking and relaxing. I think it is wonderful the amount of scents so that we can truly make it "our" scent.
  14. He typically wears "earthy" scents. We keep in touch via the internet these days, since he lives in Colorado. I don't know if that has changed much. He didn't wear cologne that much when we hung out together...just "special occassions" (like when he was trying to impress a woman) and the like. I figure that since he is just starting to date again (after a very nasty divorce), he could use something to make him feel a bit special. I figure that since it is his birthday coming up that I could help him get started again.
  15. Thanks...I just don't know how much is too much sometimes, and I know it is a bit different from commercial colognes that I have used before...Au de Quinine was a past favorite (from another manufacturer), if nothing else for it's name...lol...those wore off way too quickly and I had to use more than I really liked to get a scent to last more than a few hours.
  16. Wow...now I know all about applying phero's on women...don't get me wrong, I love women, each and every one of you (too bad English only has one word for love...the Greeks have about 9 or so, and it is so much better to describe the love between friends, family, pets, eros, etc.). But I don't see much about the application of pheros on men. Help me out here...I know that a lot overlaps (except the cops, of course), but how much is usually the right amount? I have a horrible nose, right now, when it comes to deciding if I have put too much or too little on. How much should I start with and all that? Thanks, I know that many of you ladies enjoy instructing us base creatures known as men in the finer arts in life.
  17. I, also, have a friend that needs help with a cologne choice (actually, it will be a b-day present from me to him). He is a bit of a rogue, but has the biggest heart of anyone I've ever met. He needs something to take him from "just friends" to "more than friends". We have been fast friends since the day we met in 1982 over in jolly ol' England and he's always been the girl's best buddy...which annoys him to no end. Any suggestions would be great...then I will just have it sent to him and his life will be magikally transformed!!!
  18. So...what does "green" smell like. I mean, I know mossy smells...even been to the Bayous and know that loam-y type of smell...I was looking at this one and didn't know how it would go on me. I guess I could ask someone who knows me (or get the sampler...ah, the reason I work: to have money for the little things that make life worth living). I guess I'm looking at finding a couple of scents that are "me"...one for work, one for play, and maybe one for just hanging with friends...trying to get through the 300+ scents that Mara tempts us with!
  19. Gee...and my kids just call me mean, not nurturing. I hadn't actually thought of it in those terms. You are right, manipulation has received a bad rap. I don't think that I would intentionally manipulate a person for evil intent...I try to keep my kids on the straight and narrow, but it isn't always easy for a single father. If you look at it that way, I'm constantly manipulating them to try and get them to understand how things really work and how to better interact with society as a whole. So, when is someone going to make a "child control" pheromone? I bet that would make someone a fortune (and very popular with parents).
  20. WHAT?!?! You mean men need women? Lol...I'm sure that some guys will never figure that one out. I'm glad I did years ago. That's one thing that makes life fun. It is good to see that there are some sites you can go to where revelations like that are not really revelations, but just the standard matter of course. I think that scents help to put the "fun" into "functional". Most people want to smell/be attractive and perfumes are a socially acceptable way of doing so. Adding "secret ingredients" to them to make the people you want to attract pay attention is an added bonus. I think I need to try some of the ones that have been suggested...hmmm...another batch of samples need to be ordered, I think.
  21. I am very new to this, but reading the "philosophy" behind them, I didn't look for them for the "one night stand" (never had them, never will), but looking for a way to be more "me". Sometimes you need a push in one direction or another or need a bit of help with a sticky problem (going back to my favorite so far...Shark Whisperer). I work in a very high stress environment and sometimes people just need to be nudged a little bit to get over egos or whatever and work together or that initial WTF instinct needs to be mellowed. I got one of the trial packs that Mara and Catherine put together for me and had one of the most successful conferences to date for me, work wise. Came back to trouble brewing and, based on their advice, wore Shark Whisperer in order to help smooth feathers and work out problems that had occurred while I was gone. I will try some of the more "date night" scents and pheromones when I get the chance. One question that struck me (and maybe I'm being too simplistic), but when you are in a relationship it is just plain fun to experiment with pheromones, but is it a type of manipulation or cheating the system if you are trying to get someone interested or just changing the odds? I haven't quite worked that out in my head, yet.
  22. Ladies (and gentlemen)...I am very new to this whole thing. I was introduced to it by a friend and tried a sampling when I was away on business last week...all to good results (especially the Shark Whisperer to diffuse a very difficult situation). Here is my question: There is a certain lady that I would enjoy spending more time with and don't know what to start with. I know what I don't want (that's half the battle, right?), but figuring out what I do want is the difficult part. She is witty and smart and we spend hours talking. What would help move it from "great conversation" to something a bit more (to start)? Here is another part of the conundrum...she is knowledgeable about all this stuff and I don't want to look (smell?) like I'm trying to manipulate or anything...I'm not. Sometimes, I just get a bit shy and tongue tied...phone conversation is great but in person I sometimes I get a bit shy. So, maybe what would help is something to help me with feeling more confident as much as anything else. Anyway, maybe a bit too much TMI, but this is all very new to me and I do want to learn as much as possible. I find it fascinating. I went from a skeptic to believing in a short period of time.
