AndrosteRONE Pheromone Molecule
3α-hydroxy-5α-androstan-17-one (Androsterone) is a pheromone chemically related the hormone estrone it is a fairly large and complex molecule. While many people cannot smell Androsterone it has often been described as musky, urine like and sometimes fruity or camphor like (menthal, rosemary and jasmine). It is established as a dominance pheromone that influences respect, leadership, trust and alpha-like behavior.
Androsterone is not exclusive to humans as misrepresented by some. It is also found abundantly in truffles and considered a sex pheromone in pigs and dogs as well as many other species. It is theorized by some that the unique ability of pigs to sniff out truffles is unmistakably linked to the shared Androsterone.
Androsterone is effective for use by both men and women demonstrating influence over emotional responses. The intensity of those responses can be regulated with the pairing of its beta-isomers; Epi-Androsterone (3β-isomer) or Etiocholanolone (5β-isomer). You might also find useful either Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) or Dehydroepiandrosterone Sodium Sulfate (DHEAS). Both previously suggested beta-isomers are 5a-reduced metabolites of DHEA which exhibits a deeper, more meaningful respect status.
Androsterone is commercially used most often as an alpha-status enhancer in pheromone blends. While evidently valuable this pheromone molecule can be abrupt and suggestive of arrogance rather than respected as a leader. Consequently a preponderance of blends marketed as alpha-status builders are perceived rather as egotistic and unapproachable. These inauspicious results are attributed to pheromone vendors who do not even use pheromones let alone their own products. Its like accepting corporate success advice from imprisoned Enron executives!
Through substantial observations passionately collected on our personal pheromone journey pheromoneXS validates Androsterone as a key component of successful alpha-status blends. Our enthusiasm for pheromones is representative of expertly crafted blends designed with amazing real-world results as the outcome. Supported by a community of pheromone hobbyists and experts alike we are collectively advancing the science of human influence through chemosignals.
It is recommended that both men and women begin by using smaller incremental dosages such as 2.5 mcg up to 12.5 mcg per drop at the higher end for effectiveness. While higher content usage can incite arrogance and dominance pheromoneXS has successfully tempered these results at over 100 mcg per drop. The results are unquestionably a testament to our unique positioning as dedicated pheromone fanatics. If we don’t use it personally, you won’t find it in our store.

Responsivity to two odorants, androstenone and amyl acetate, and the affective impact of odors on interpersonal relationships.
Pierce JD Jr1, Cohen AB, Ulrich PM.
Substantial variation exists in the importance of olfaction in influencing individuals' preferences, yet the sources of this variation remain elusive. The authors explored responsivity to 2 odorants as 1 potential source. Participants (N = 258) completed the Affective Impact of Odor Scale and were assessed for responsivity to the putative human pheromone androstenone and amyl acetate. Results showed a significant relationship between odorant responsivity and self-reports of the influence of odors. People able to smell androstenone more commonly reported odors as having a negative effect on interpersonal relationships than did people anosmic to androstenone, whereas responsivity to amyl acetate was associated with positive effects of odors on relationships. Responsivity to certain odorants may be an important factor affecting human social interactions.

The secret codes of mammalian scents.
Ferrero DM1, Liberles SD.
The scents of mammals are complex blends of natural products that reveal a wealth of individual information. Many mammals can decipher these scent codes to discern the gender, age, endocrine status, social status, and genotype of conspecifics using dedicated sensory receptors in their olfactory system. Among these social odors are pheromones, chemicals that trigger innate behaviors and physiological responses. Here, we review classes of mammal-derived natural products that influence behavior through activation of the olfactory system.

How chemical information processing interferes with face processing: a magnetoencephalographic study.
Walla P1, Mayer D, Deecke L, Lang W.
Magnetic field changes related to face encoding were recorded in 20 healthy young participants. Faces had to be deeply encoded under four kinds of simultaneous nasal chemical stimulation. Neutral room air, phenyl ethyl alcohol (PEA, rose flavor), carbon dioxide (CO2, pain), and hydrogen sulfide (H2S, rotten eggs flavor) were used as chemical stimuli. PEA and H2S represented odor stimuli, whereas CO2 was used for trigeminal stimulation (pain sensation). After the encoding of faces, the respective recognition performances were tested focusing on recognition effects related to specific chemical stimulation during encoding. The number of correctly recognized faces (hits) varied between chemical conditions. PEA stimulation during face encoding significantly increased the number of hits compared to the control condition. H2S also led to an increased mean number of hits, whereas simultaneous CO2 administration during face encoding resulted in a reduction. Analysis of the physiological data revealed two latency regions of interest. Compared to the control condition, both olfactory stimulus conditions resulted in reduced activity components peaking at about 260 ms after stimulus onset, whereas CO2 produced a strongly pronounced enhanced activity component peaking at about 700 ms after stimulus onset. Both olfactory conditions elicited only weak enhanced activities at about 700 ms, and CO2 did not show any difference activity at 260 ms after stimulus onset compared to the control condition. It is concluded that the early activity differences represent subconscious olfactory information processing leading to enhanced memory performances irrespective of the hedonic value, at least if they are only subconsciously processed. The later activity is suggested to reflect conscious CO2 perception negatively affecting face encoding and therefore leading to reduced subsequent face recognition. We interpret that conscious processing of nasal chemical stimulation competes with deep face encoding with respect to cortical resources, whereas subconscious processing of nasal chemical stimulation does not.

Sex-specific hemispheric differences in cortical activation to a bimodal odor.
Lundström JN1, Hummel T.
Most odorants we experience in every day life are bimodal in that they activate both the main olfactory and the intranasal trigeminal system. Few studies have investigated whether true bimodal odorants are processed differently than unimodal odorants. The aim of the study was to address sex-dependent hemispheric differences in olfactory event-related potentials. Event-related potentials (ERP) of the bimodal stimulant peppermint oil were recorded in 34 healthy subjects (17 women). No sex-related differences in olfactory sensitivity, trigeminal sensitivity or hedonic ratings of the stimuli were found. Although perceived similarly by men and women, results indicated a sex-differentiated hemispheric response to bimodal odors. Women generally expressed larger amplitudes and longer latencies over their left hemisphere, whereas men demonstrated a similar pattern over their right hemisphere. This effect was most evident for the early sensory derived ERP components indicating a sex-dependent difference in the sensory processing of bimodal odors.

Odor quality coding and categorization in human posterior piriform cortex.
Howard JD1, Plailly J, Grueschow M, Haynes JD, Gottfried JA.
Efficient recognition of odorous objects universally shapes animal behavior and is crucial for survival. To distinguish kin from nonkin, mate from nonmate and food from nonfood, organisms must be able to create meaningful perceptual representations of odor qualities and categories. It is currently unknown where and in what form the brain encodes information about odor quality. By combining functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) with multivariate (pattern-based) techniques, we found that spatially distributed ensemble activity in human posterior piriform cortex (PPC) coincides with perceptual ratings of odor quality, such that odorants with more (or less) similar fMRI patterns were perceived as more (or less) alike. We did not observe these effects in anterior piriform cortex, amygdala or orbitofrontal cortex, indicating that ensemble coding of odor categorical perception is regionally specific for PPC. These findings substantiate theoretical models emphasizing the importance of distributed piriform templates for the perceptual reconstruction of odor object quality.
