Her two pheromone cosmetic fragrance additives increase your attractiveness and the affection you receive from others. Proven effective in published studies. These trade-secret formulas are unscented.

Three 8 week double blind studies published in peer reviewed scientific journals prove the effectiveness of Athena Pheromones:

Boston Study of Post-Menopausal Women and 10:13

Romantic attention and affection enhance a woman's well-being at any age, and can contribute to her overall health and happiness. The significant results of this study show that a topical pheromone, worn with perfume as directed in the protocol can increase the affection postmenopausal women receive from their male partners.

San Francisco State University Study of 10:13 and Reproductive-Aged Women

A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of a synthesized female pheromone was conducted with regularly menstruating, university women. A vial of either synthesized pheromone or placebo was selected blindly and added to a subject's perfume.

Philadelphia Study of 10X for Men

This study tested whether synthesized human male pheromones increase the sociosexual behavior of men. Previous data showed such was the case in women. 38 heterosexual men, aged 26-42, completed a 2-week baseline period and 6-week placebo controlled, double-blind trial testing a pheromone "designed to improve the romance in their lives". Each man kept daily behavioral records for 6 sociosexual behaviors
