Message from Winnifred Cutler - President and Founder of Athena Institute


Thank you for your interest in Athena Pheromone 10Xtm for men - our unscented additive for your aftershave lotion and cologne. 10X contains synthesized human male pheromones to enhance your "sex appeal" to women and increase the romantic attention your receive from them.

I am a biologist and research scientist who has examined human sexuality and behavioral endocrinology since 1975. In 1986, with colleagues at the University of Pennsylvania, I discovered that sexually active young men do produce pheromones. In 1993, I successfully formulated and marketed synthesized human female pheromones in Athena Pheromone 10:13tm fragrance additive for women. 10:13 has been proven effective; an independent study of women in 2001 found that 10:13 worked for 74% to increase their sexual attractiveness to men.

In 1994, I conducted an 8-week, tightly controlled scientific study of 38 heterosexual men who used their favorite aftershave lotion. Compared to the men who used a placebo, 74% of the men who mixed 10X with their fragrance experienced increased romantic attention from women. In 1998, this study was evaluated by scientific peers, accepted, and published in the journal, Archives of Sexual Behavior.

Science’s "gold standard" test of whether a product works is called a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Few, if any cosmetics you buy have ever had such efficacy studies. But both our products, 10X for men and 10:13 for women, have been so tested.

As a scientist, I know 10X worked. Now after several years of market experience, our customers tell us 10X works for them and they reorder. Some men report that the product did not work for them, so please read our instructions carefully to increase the likelihood 10X will enhance your sex-appeal. Good Luck!

P.S. Cheap imitations of 10X exist, but they do NOT contain Athena’s trade-secret formula. Therefore, contrary to some claims, our scientific evidence does not prove their products work.
