  1. I got a Purple Puff sample with LAM in it in my order. First off I was a bit surprised when I remembered what this scent was supposed to contain. To me it smelled nice, almost like a laundry fresh type scent. I love lavender but I couldn't detect that nor the mashmallow, even though my friend could tell about the marshmallow. I guess given the ingredients I was expecting something more "sugary" but it was more floral/laundry fresh, which isn't a bad thing, just what I noticed. I didn't notice the cops although smelling it straight out of the bottle had a bit of an odd undertone which may have been the cops. Please be careful with this, as I think it did give me a slight headache if I was exposed to too much directly.... Please take all my scent reviews with a grain of salt, I have hyperosmia so some scents really affect me and bother me in a way that they wouldn't with others Honestly spraying it directly onto my wrists or neck area was WAY too much for me. It is even hard to wash the scent off to tone it down. I have noticed however that as the scent has time to fade and tone down I will enjoy it much more at the end of the day, it has almost completely different notes and seems more musky? I did layer this over LFM though the times I tried it. The best way I've found to apply it is to spray it on a cotton pad, evenly distributing it around, giving it time to sit, and then very lightly rubbing it on where I want to apply. That will help speed up the more muted musky scent that seems to appear when the main undertones have worn off more. I actually really like the scent at this point, but straight out of the bottle and applied striaght to my skin, it is a bit overwhelming. Not unpleasant at all, just not as nice. Like I said in my other LFM review I haven't been having much luck with pheros, and I've only just began to use this one out when I found out the way to tone it down, it's also been layered over the LFM so phero type reviews may be skewed. I will repeat what I said in the other forum which is that one male friend I don't know very well mentioned to me, "I'm not usually this cuddly!", but I don't know him well enough at all to know how true this is or how out of the ordinary that was...I will update this once I've had more experience wearing it out as for the effects to the LAM in it.

    Luv Truffle

    Hi, this is my Luv Truffle review I'm writing because I got free samples, thanks!! This smell is very yummy and choclatey out of the bottle, super relaxing. I have yet to try it as a scent on myself too much yet, but the times I have, some odd scent notes came out that I didn't smell in the bottle, almost harsh, I'll have to do some more tests to see, or perhaps it would be better with a bit of the oil in an unscented lotion. I don't know if putting a bit on my skin was right. Also even if those odd scents didn't come out, I may prefer this in a bath product, it may be a bit too sugary sweet for a scent - I have a chocolate based scent I like at home but it's toned down by lavender and other things so it's easier for me to wear it on a daily basis. More updates later - I really do like it, just unsure of it as a daily scent or perfume for myself.

    La Femme Mystere

    Hi, I wanted to post a review because I opted for the free samples, I hope it has not been more than 2 weeks, I really wanted to give it a fair review. Unfortunatley even after posting for help in other forums, I've tried a bunch of different things and haven't noticed *anything* with this blend, which was pretty disappointing I know that some just don't work for people and perhaps I should have tried something like Open Windows for my first blend, but I just really liked the sound of this. I made sure I shook it well after each application, and went out many different times in different situations with different amounts, giving the different amounts different trials as well, and making sure to combine it with a light scent to mask any unpleasant smells (although to me and my friend it smells fine). It doesn't really seem to affect me personally either, I did feel unusually good and confident going out one day, but I think it was more that I'd spent a long time getting ready and I liked my outfit, the effect wore off soon after. That's not to say at all that I go around looking at my shoes and ignoring people, I just didn't feel any different in particular. I will update this review if anything changes, I do continue to use it when I go out, I feel really bad because I don't want to give an incorrect review, but I've tried this in so many different ways in so many different situations, and, nada :/ I may end up trading this? I read about people doing this in other forums, not sure how it works, but I would be interested. Something that may mess with this review a bit if I do see a change is that I had a sample of Purple Puff with LAM, which I sometimes layer over the LFM...have not yet seen a reaction with that but it was only quite quite recently that I started this, I will post a review on that if I see a difference. The only thing I have noticed, and this was layering the Purple Puff/LAM lightly over the LFM, is that a male friend I don't know very well came over, and I was feeling kind of sad. We hugged for a long time and he said, "I'm not usually such a cuddly person!" I do remember when I first met him he was somewhat taken aback by the fact that I hugged him, but again I don't know him well enough to know how out of the ordinary this really is, and if something was working, if it was the LAM kicking in...
  4. Maybe I was either out of it, overly confident, or forgot, but is there a way or option on the page to order a trial pack of some unscented pheros? I saw some stuff like that but it was mostly for scents, or scent phero blends, or it'd be the same phero with a lot of scents...unscented is importantt o me because as I said I have a crazy sense of smell and while I may even love a scent it can be too much for me to wear for extended periods. I have no problem experimenting but I can't justify buying a few more big roll ons that don't work for me
  5. Thank you all so much for the suggestions, don't worry, I haven't given up. I'm just going to have to tweak things to see if I can get them to work better for me. Today I tried again, I was paying attention more to what I was wearing and had less of a cutsey/funky look than usual. I may have messed up again but I was running short on time but, I put some scented massage oil that I like on a lotion application pad along with a few rolls of LFM. I distributed it evenly all over my shoulders, décolletage area, arms, neck and back of neck. Things that may have been wrong with this were the fact that they got mixed and were distributed all over instead of certain hot spots, but I know at least that the scent problem was not an issue, and if it was so distributed I'm doubting that I used too much. I really like the scent of that oil and it is really good for my skin, but the scent fades quite quickly. I did get some lovely scent samples from here, but I can sometimes have trouble getting a good balance between something that is too strong for me and something that lasts...My sense of smell is very accute and even if a scent is nice to me it can be distracting for me to smell it really strongly all day. Anyway that's another story and something I'll probably work on as well. Oh, I also ran a small bit through my hair but along with some hair smoothing balm that I like the smell of, so that shouldn't have been a problem. I was feeling pretty good as I walked out the door, I looked nice I thought. I took the bus down to where I was meeting a friend and didn't notice anything really on the bus or walking down the street, but no negative effects like the other day. Went into the coffee shop, still didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. I met up with a (male) friend of mine, actually someone I have just recently met, so my take on his behavior may not have been the best. Unfortunatley again the day was kind of muggier than I thought and I ended up getting kind of sweaty again ugh. We talked and although the conversation went into some really deep territory for really not knowing someone all that well, I didn't get the feeling that it was really out of the ordinary for either of us. He ended up stopping by my house in the end and we watched some stuff online, and while he wasn't trying to get out of there, he left shortly after when he could have easily stayed longer (knowing he had nothing to do). To be fair we were both a bit tired and by that time probably the phero had worn off, but overall I would say that I didn't notice anything that I would consider out of the ordinary for the interaction with him and on the street. As for *feeling* confident, I usually feel that way while walking out the door, but it's not something that's on my mind the whole day strutting around That doesn't mean at all that I'm mumbling and looking at my shoes or anything at all though. I'm going to try some more trials, probably one where I am quite obviously overdosing for comparison, and a similar trial to this one but where I apply the scented oil and then apply the phero to spots instead of getting it more mixed and dispersed. Also I did get a small sample of Purple Puff with Like a Magnet which I am going to break out for someone I know in particular, but it will be interesting to see the interactions on the way. Not sure when that'll happen though, possibly this weekend...
  6. That's what I've heard, I did hear that about LFM as well though, but Open Windows seems to be a big hit across the board. It's just that I was drawn to the other blends featuring the Beta-Androstenol more prominently...I don't really want to be the life of the party, I just want people I do connect with to feel safe and at ease to stay and open up. That's a good point Xev...oil is also nice as it blends with oil scents I have. Would any blend containing silicone have this problem, even the spray?
  7. Thanks so much for the tips, I will update, and I also posted in the LFM reviews thread for help, it seems like a few others had to tweak things to get it to work for them correctly...I certainly have enough to keep trying Is there anything in this blend that could be negative for the vibe I want to get? My second choice would be Perfect Match and I have heard great things about Open Windows, but there was just something too irresistable about the blend and reviews for LFM...

    La Femme Mystere

    Hi, I just did a post in the newbies board panicking that this blend didn't seem to have any effect and in fact perhaps a negative one the first time I used it! Maybe this wasn't a good choice for my first phero blend but I couldn't resist it, it sounded really perfect for what I was looking for... I'm looking to use this socially to help people feel like they can open up to me more and bond. I have a really hard time getting people to do that with me. I'm not so concerned about any sexual stuff right now, just kind of a deeper social connection type thing. I also noted that I'm often seen as "cute and silly", and it would be nice to get a more sophisticated feel...I have never had men really call me "beautiful" or "gorgeous" at all, and only "sexy" and "hot" during intimate times...despite having a ton of natural features which are generally desireable to men...I got the silicone roll on and used it on a slightly hotter day, may have used too much but I kind of doubt it? It's just hard starting out :/ For those veterans who had trouble making it work what was the trick and did you learn to love it in the end? The other blend that sounded like a good one for me was Perfect Match and I've heard good things about Open Windows.
  9. Oh wow, that is good to know - maybe that's what was going on with me today! However how much does it disappate throughout the day? I never reapplied and was out for about 5 hours in moderate heat, without noticing any change in the way people were reacting to me.
  10. Thanks everyone, ack, I am sorry I did not post a welcome, I was at the other phero message board and got mixed up between them. Anyway after reading the reviews, information about the specific pheros involved, etc this seemed like a really good and intriguing start for me unless things got overly sexual. I'm often seen as too cute or silly and liked sort of the "sophistication" spin on this blend, as well as the fact that it seemed to emphasise pheros that focused on deeper connections and bonding. That's basically what I'm looking for, more of a social vibe than a sexual one. I have a lot of trouble connecting to people and there's a culture here of standoffishness so I'm trying to break through. I will try the scent suggestion, thank you, but I wonder about the "bad smell" to others thing - strangely enough part of the reason why I got interested in pheros is that my sense of smell has become super sensitive to the point where I think I *do* smell pheros coming from people, mostly from men so I'm gussessing some sort of androgen? I wanted to see what a good "unscented" phero blend did smell like to compare it. I actually don't smell at all the "androgen" smell I've been smelling from other people lately which is actually quite rank. This phero smells just slightly musky to me in a good way, it could be that I'm reacting to the more sexual pheros off of people? Still have yet to figure that out. But I suppose it could gross some people out, I'd just be very surprised given my sense of smell and possible phero scent sensitivity myself... Although now I'm a bit confused, I've read about people who "OD'd" on a phero but I never read anything really about it producing an opposite effect, I suppose I haven't looked at the forum too much. Is it common or has it happened at all that if you put too much it can just gross people out?

    Hello from rainy Seattle...

    The real question is, can you beat the Seattle Freeze?? Let me know if you do :/
  12. Hi everyone, after a lot of thinking about what phero blend would be best for me I decided on "La Femme Mystère" - I also saw great reviews and that didn't hurt I am totally new to pheros so I hope I'm not doing something wrong. I ordered the silicone base type with no copulins because I didn't quite want to go into that territory yet. I decided on the silicone base because I dislike the smell of alcohol and the fact that the weather here usually is not very warm. I wanted to go for the CPS because it sounded like it was longer lasting. Today was warmer than usual, I dressed cute but normal for me, I didn't have much time going to the doctor. I wanted to use a bit of the phero because I just got it and haven't had time to go out yet, I didn't have any social event planned, just to get a feel for things. I rolled on a bit on my wrists and rubbed them together, a bit on the base of my neck, a bit behind my ears, and I had some on my hands so I ran them through my hair. I was in a bit of a hurry and had to wash my hands and so I reapplied to wrists, perhaps that time or even the first time I did not shake the bottle enough or at all? I feel like I should have. I think the amount I applied was reasonable but I have no idea, or what place I should focus on, if any. I know that pheros don't "magically" (although that is the name of the company, wait!! hehe) make everyone friendly and such but honestly today people were acting slightly UNfriendly towards me! Two times I was leaving a building and someone let the door almost slam in my face, I dropped something that bounced into a cute guy I was sitting next to on the bus and apologized, did not even break his indie headphones chill to say a word! I wouldn't say at all that I was in a bad mood or unapproachable today and throuought the day I even forgot that I'd put on the pheros and when people were being rude or standoffish in public I'd remember and be puzzled. I didn't notice any difference gender wise and in fact some "sleazy guy" types didn't seem to be reacting in the least. Possible factors? Weather, it's hotter than usual and I tend to run hot so I was sweating a lot, didn't have a chance to take a shower this morning before rushing out the door :/ Certainly not smelling bad (took a shower late last evening due to an even hotter day) but I didn't start out fresh. I'm also seeing the doctor to treat some embarassing stuff so certainly not feeling completely lady-like, hah, and I don't know if taking any medicines will decrease the effects. Does anyone have any ideas for round two? I want to write a review but I need to make sure I'm doing it properly and have gone out a few more times.
