Do pheromones really work to attract others and where can you buy such a perfume or cologne?
Pheromones are naturally occurring substances the fertile body excretes externally, conveying an airborne message to trigger a response from the opposite sex of the same species. Science is doing a study on insects to see if it can work in the same way with humans.
Pheromones were first defined in 1959 as chemical substances excreted by animals to trigger reproductive behavioral response from a recipient of the same species.
It was in 1986 that Dr. Winnifred Cutler, a founder of Athena Institute, and her colleagues conducted the first controlled scientific studies to document the existence of pheromones in humans. Prior to their landmark research THERE WERE NO CONCLUSIVE INDICATIONS THAT PHEROMONES WERE EXCRETED BY HUMANS.
By 1999, from the biological perspective, the term pheromone can be defined as a chemical excreted by animals that promotes behaviors which perpetuate the species.
Now in 2005, the scientific literature recognizes 4 classes of pheromones; territorial markers, mother-infant, menstrual synchrony, and the 4th class that is the area of expertise for Dr. Cutler and Athena Institute; human sex-attractant pheromones.
Athena Pheromone fragrance additives have been the subject of three double-lined, placebo-controlled published studies (two of them by independent researchers) demonstrating their efficacy in increasing sexual attractiveness. This rigorous of an investigation is the gold standard of science, and few (if any) cosmetics undergo this type of research bound for peer-reviewed publication.
Wikipedia's page on pheromones says this:
"Some body spray advertisers claim that their products contain human sexual pheromones that act as an aphrodisiac. In the 1970s, "copulins" were patented as products that release human pheromones, based on research on rhesus monkeys."

Pheromones are chemicals that are emitted/secreted by animals that trigger a social response in other animals of the same species. This is why they are "social hormones"- hormones affect behavior, and pheromones cause different social behaviors. There are many different types of pheromones, such as alarm pheromones (e.g. aphids release it when attacked by a predator and it causes them to fly away), food trail pheromones (e.g. ants lay a trail from the nest to… Read More

There's no clear reason why we have pubic hair.

Insects use pheromones to communicate with each other in two main ways. One is when insects such as ants leave a pheromone trail for other members of the colony to follow to a food source. The other way is to release pheromones to indicate when they have found food; bees and some others use this method. Read More
