We’ve come across 2 sexy organic products recently that claim to be aphrodisiacs. They are fragrances based on body chemistry.
First up is a product out of California called Eye of Love. To be honest this brand was a product in our gift bag to VIP at the Planet Fashion TV launch of Miami Swimwear Fashion Week this year. Their product is based on the science of pheromones. When we met the owners of the brand, we found their pitch compelling.
Human pheromones are chemicals that send subconscious scent signals to the opposite sex and can trigger very powerful sexual responses. Your body naturally emits pheromones every day. The scent signals from pheromones are picked up through an organ 3 inches inside the nose called the Vomeronasal Organ (VNO). When the nose detects the pheromone, it sends a sexual response signal to the limbic region of the brain, which controls our emotions and sexual desires.
When these sexual and romantic feelings are activated, your brain releases a chemical called phenethylamine, which in turn kicks on dopamine production. The result can be quite powerful and you do not have to smell a pheromone to be affected by it.
The owner of Eye of Love, Alberto Chowaiki, claims that people who produce higher amounts of human pheromones often have greater success attracting the opposite sex. Studies have shown that pheromones can help others to see you as more open, attractive, charismatic, and easy to talk to. In one study, ABC 20/20, twin brothers and twin sisters were used in the testing. Only one of the twins was sprayed with the actual pheromones. The results showed that the twin who had the actual pheromone was more sexually attractive than the other and was requested for more dates.
This is why EYE of LOVE Perfume and Sensual products were created with synthetic pheromones, to give people an added advantage in attracting people.
Although pheromones are odorless, EYE of LOVE has added special fragrances to enhance their effect and the outcome. The perfume and the pheromone work on two entirely different levels. The Pheromone is odorless and stimulates a chemical reaction, while the fragrance complements and enhances the particular mood. The makers of Eye of Love say that it works best when sprayed on the areas where sweat glands are, the wrists and neck. I had the pleasure of trying the product out for the last month. I’m not sure if it’s making me more attractive but the scent is delicious and so far I love it.
The second product that’s come on our radar is from Good Clean Love.
Good Clean Love is an organic intimacy product company has created a new line of aphrodisiac scents that are designed to awaken the passionate lover in each of us. Like the rest of the products that this innovative company offers, the fragrances contain no additives or fixatives. They are completely free from any harmful petrochemicals or parabens. They are made with essential oils and aphrodisiac scents that respond to the unique body chemistry of the wearer.
Most synthetic fragrances are largely produced with 95% petrochemicals including acetone, phthalates, and many endocrine disrupters. This means that when people use these synthetic fragrances, they are spraying these dangerous chemicals directly onto their skin. Good Clean Love is attempting to be a sensual, healthy alternative to synthetic fragrances.
