Pheromone Smells in Humans

Pheromone smells in humans are interesting. Even if I’m straight out of the shower just dried, my armpits has this extremely specific pheromone smell… (but I can’t describe it, other than it’s strangely enough similar to how much dog has occasionally a couple of times smelled strongly all the sudden after walks and no-one was able to figure out why he smelled that way.

Now I think that your pheromone scent has to do with your diet, however in my case I’m probably the healthiest eater in the UK (and I would actually say that at least I didn’t notice such problem before I started that lifestyle, so it could be that my healthy food makes it worse for me!, although could be a co-incident).

Now my theory is that (because I eat healthy) it’s the kind of sweat that attracts women (btw I saw a documentary about that on BBC where they actually proved it with RL girls experiment, which is good because I thought it might just be something that’s true only in theory). However, I’m obviously scared that I may just be wrong and it’s regular body odor.

However the strange thing is I love the smell! I stick my head in there and breath in and use my hand to fan in the air. I’ve never realized how crazy that is until I just wrote it now!

Also I recently (1.5 months ago) stopped masturbating (please don’t bring that topic up, I don’t want to be known as “the masturbator guy” but really this is relevant) and I’m pretty sure the smell is stronger since, so I’m not sure if it has to do with some kind of sexual pheromones.

Pheromones in Insects

The male sexual odors of insects. are at times strong enough to be perceived by humans. In some cicadae, it has a cinnamon odor; in caddis flies it has a vanilla scent. Attractive substances can be volatile or adhesive to surfaces, and can consist of scales or waxy secretions.
There are specific anatomic sites, depending on the species, which govern sexual interaction and patterns of behavior, depending on the location of the emitters of these attractive scents. These odors are discharged from sites ranging from the tip of the abdomen to glands on legs, back, or head. As in mammals, odor is not the single stimulus to sexual attraction, as fireflies utilize odor as well as vision to attract each other.

According to, pheromones as insect signals are not only regulators of sexual attraction, but can stimulate attack and aggressive attitudes, as, for example, in bees. In addition, they provide directional clues to food or dwelling places (i.e., hives or ant hills) or they stimulate nursing behavior in adults to feed pupil embryos or to take care of eggs, as in ants and bees,

The character of the substances that provide sexual stimulation vary greatly. They range chemically from alcohols to aldehydes and fatty acids, and these substances are not exclusive to insect sex attraction as related chemicals are found to be sex attractants in mammals as well As an example, butyric acid, which is found in human vaginal secretions is detected by humans at a concentration of 1 x 9 (to the 9‘) while honey bees can detect it at l.l x 1], representing one molecule diluted in over one billion parts of air ‘or water. A good description of the significance of insect pheromones is seen in the now classic description by Lewis Thomas of female moth attraction, which, with the wind blowing in the right direction, can attract males from miles away.
