AndrostANONE Pheromone Molecule
5α-ANDROSTAN-3-ONE (AndrostANONE) is a pheromone detected in human sweat and saliva. It is closely associated with the widely used Androstenone whose chemical makeup is similar in structure. However experience from pheromone users like our community researchers indicate a significant difference. This information can only be obtained from pheromone experience rather than simply reading studies.
AndrostANONE has been successfully used as a tempering molecule to offset the sexual aggression of Androstenone. Considered the warmer, friendlier version of the two it can be used in conjunction with other molecules or by itself. There are indications that it creates a more intense sexual bonding effect that’s less aggressive and confrontational. This aspect renders the wearer as friendlier and more approachable as a potential mate with sexual potential.
AndrostANONE has been rumored to be Androtics Putative 75 (P75) molecule but some pheromone users and representatives from that company have debunked this as bandwagoning. While personal experimentation revealed a close association with the effects of P75 there are also vast differences. The juxtaposition of these molecules exposed the similarities and differences that indicated my personal analyses that they are not the same.
At low dosages, below 5 mcg per spray, AndrostANONE invokes an effect which can be described as sexual confidence. At 5 mcg to 25 mcg per spray AndrostANONE has a bewildering effect that is referred to as ghosting or an overdose. This essentially means the molecule is to strong an effect on others sending chemical signals to the brain (in this case extreme sexual attraction) which to the logical aspect or reason is difficult to believe. It is therefore that the brain disregards or blocks out the signal hence the “ghosting” identification.
However at dosages at 30 mcg and higher AndrostANONE creates a unique bonding aspect. The wearer is identified by the exposed as someone very close to them. pheromoneXS is of the opinion this aspect also occurs after copulation when a release of oxytocin pairs the individuals. AndrostANONE displaying this pattern could be releasing chemical signals more closely associated with the after glow of sex.
This is a fantastic pheromone molecule to begin experimentation with. Have fun and go about your daily life normally. At the end of the day review your journey and compare your results to a day you are pheromone free.

Skin conductance and subjective assessments associated with the odour of 5-alpha-androstan-3-one.
Van Toller C, Kirk-Smith M, Wood N, Lombard J, Dodd GH.
Two experiments are reported using the odours of 5-alpha-androstan-3-one (androstanone) and, a control odour, aurantiol. Various measures of skin conductance (SC) were recorded and analysed and subjects also rated the odours using analogue scales. The first experiment involved comparisons between subjects who perceive the androstanone odour as pleasant and subjects who perceive it as unpleasant. A number of differences were shown between the two groups and also between androstanone and aurantiol. The results are interpreted as demonstrating the influence of cognitive factors that are found between male and female responses and also between the responses of the 'pleasant' and 'unpleasant' groups. The second experiment examined the SC response of subjects who displayed specific anosmia to the odour of androstanone. The results suggest that the concept of specific anosmia requires modification.

Pheromonal influences on sociosexual behavior in young women.
McCoy NL1, Pitino L.
A double-blind, placebo-controlled study of a synthesized putative female pheromone was conducted with regularly menstruating, university women (N=36, mean age=27.8). The pheromone formula was derived from earlier work investigating the underarm secretions of fertile, sexually active, heterosexual women. A vial of either synthesized pheromone or placebo was selected blindly and added to a subject's perfume. Subjects recorded seven sociosexual behaviors and reported them weekly across three menstrual cycles. Beginning with Day 8 of each cycle, the first cycle contained a 2-week baseline period followed by an experimental period of as many as 3 weeks each from the next two cycles for a maximum of 6 weeks. The 19 pheromone and 17 placebo subjects did not differ significantly in age, weight, body mass index, dating status or ethnicity nor in reported accuracy, back-filling data, perception of a positive effect or perfume use. Placebo subjects were significantly taller than pheromone subjects. Except for male approaches, subjects did not differ significantly at baseline in average weekly sociosexual behaviors. A significantly greater proportion of pheromone users compared with placebo users increased over baseline in frequency of sexual intercourse, sleeping next to a partner, formal dates and petting/affection/kissing but not in frequency of male approaches, informal dates or masturbation. Three or more sociosexual behaviors increased over baseline for 74% of pheromone users compared with 23% of placebo users. We conclude that this synthesized pheromone formula acted as a sex attractant pheromone and increased the sexual attractiveness of women to men.

Pheromonal influences on sociosexual behavior in men.
Cutler WB1, Friedmann E, McCoy NL.
This study tested whether synthesized human male pheromones increase the sociosexual behavior of men. Thirty-eight heterosexual men, ages 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 subject kept daily behavioral records for 6 sociosexual behaviors: petting/affection/kissing, formal dates, informal dates, sleeping next to a romantic partner, sexual intercourse, and self-stimulation to ejaculation (masturbation) and FAXed them each week. Significantly more pheromone than placebo users increased above baseline in sexual intercourse and sleeping with a romantic partner. There was a tendency for more pheromone than placebo users to increase above baseline in petting/affection/kissing, and informal dates, but not in self-stimulation to ejaculation or in formal dates. A significantly larger proportion of pheromone than placebo users increased in > or = 2 and > or = 3 of the 5 sociosexual behaviors involving a female partner. Thus, there was a significant increase in male sociosexual behaviors in which a woman's sexual interest and cooperation plays a role but not in male masturbation which involves only the man. These initial data need replication but suggest that human male pheromones affected the sexual attractiveness of men to women.

Body odour preferences in men and women: do they aim for specific MHC combinations or simply heterozygosity?
Wedekind C1, Füri S.
The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is an immunologically important group of genes that appears to be under natural as well as sexual selection. Several hypotheses suggest that certain MHC-allele combinations (usually heterozygous ones) are superior under selective pressure by pathogens. This could influence mate choice in a way that preferences function to create MHC-heterozygous offspring, or that they function to create specific allele combinations that are beneficial under the current environmental conditions through their complementary or epistatic effects. To test these hypotheses, we asked 121 men and women to score the odours of six T-shirts, worn by two women and four men. Their scorings of pleasantness correlated negatively with the degree of MHC similarity between smeller and T-shirt-wearer in men and women who were not using the contraceptive pill (but not in Pill-users). Depending on the T-shirt-wearer, the amount of variance in the scorings of odour pleasantness that was explained by the degree of MHC similarity (r2) varied between nearly 0 and 23%. There was no apparent effect of gender in this correlation: the highest r2 was actually reached with one of the male odours sniffed by male smellers. Men and women who were reminded of their own mate/ex-mate when sniffing a T-shirt had significantly fewer MHC-alleles in common with this T-shirt-wearer than expected by chance. This suggests that the MHC or linked genes influence human mate choice. We found no significant effect when we tested for an influence of the MHC on odour preferences after the degree of similarity between T-shirt-wearer and smeller was statistically controlled for. This suggests that in our study populations the MHC influences body odour preferences mainly, if not exclusively, by the degree of similarity or dissimilarity. The observed preferences would increase heterozygosity in the progeny. They do not seem to aim for more specific MHC combinations.
