Half the women that participated in the study had the pheromone scent added to the perfume given them while the other half did not. The study was done blind, meaning the women did not know whether their perfume contained pheromone or not. The women that participated in the study were asked to keep a diary of their experience.Those women that had the chemically manufactured pheromone showed a 41% increase in petting, kissing and affection with partners.
Of the placebo group, only 14% reported increased affection.Overall, 68 per cent of the pheromone group reported increases in acts such as sex and formal dates.AdvertisementThe research was carried out by Harvard University's Joan Friebely and Massachusetts doctor Susan Rako.The pheromone's discoverer, biologist Winnifred Cutler, is keeping its identity confidential until patents have been granted for her organization, the Athena Institute for Women's Wellness Research in Chester Springs in Pennsylvania.
