Answer from Dr. Elizabeth Gunther Stewart
*** Many products are said to contain a concentration of human-derived pheromones, which accounts for their claims of irresistibility. There's no way to tell if these claims are ligit, but one product that might be worth trying is Athena Pheromone 10:13 for Women ($98.50 for a 6 month supply, at Athenainstitute.com).
This pheromone product was developed by Winnfred Cutler, Ph.D., the researcher who codiscovered human pheromones in the 1980's, so it's likely among the better ones on the market. ***
END OF EXCERPT
COMMENT FROM ATHENA INSTITUTE: Both Athena Pheromone 10:13tm for women and Athena Pheromone 10Xtm for men are cosmetics that can increase your attractiveness to the opposite sex. Neither product is an “aphrodisiac.”
