    Men's cover scent descriptions

    Here's a quick reference for all the new guys researching the forum on what the scents smell like. Attached is also the link to PXS's FAQ as well.

    cheers amigos



    FXS: Unbeknown to me, as a child, my neighbor had been a fragrance designer for International Flavors and Fragrances in NJ. When he left the company to set up his own, my father had completely outfitted his laboratory. When I took my father for a visit back to the town he raised me and him knowing my business he took me buy this gentleman's lab and sure enough it was still there and even better he remembered my father very well. What occurred was a world-class fragrance made specifically for pheromoneXS that's been compared to Issey Miyake although I have never personally smelled it.
    Base Notes: Musk, Sandalwood, Moss
    Middle Notes: Citrus
    Top Notes: Spices

    Fresh Musk: This was the culmination of of one of many attempts of mine to create a fragrance I could wear and like. I'm not a guy who is big on colognes, but that's only because I've never been able to discover any that work well for me. Every time someone told me I should try out a cologne because how great it smells, I'd never get the same results. For whatever reason it just didn't work for me, so being the creative type I decided to make my own.
    Base Notes: Patchouli, Vetiver, Cinnamon, Musk
    Middle Notes: Lemon Grass, Cedar Wood
    Top Notes: Amber, Rosewood, Juniper

    Sultans Oud: This product was literally designed for and used for many years by a recently departed member of the Royal Saudi Family. It was made in small batches to meet a one person demand and when that person no longer needed it, because of death the remaining supply was made available to me. I took this as an opportunity and now present it to my clients and friends. I've been promised that it can be made in the specifications and supply to meet my demand exclusively to pheromone XS community members. 
Base Notes: Patchouli, Pine Dark Amber
Middle Notes: Lavender, Vanilla, Sandalwood
Top Notes: Musk, Grey Gris

    Nobility: This brand new fragrance was actually included with FXS so I could run tests to see which one the community liked better. I just thought it was another bottle of the same. I really like this one as well and I'd have to say its another world-class fragrance added to the line. The new fragrance has elements of Incense, Cinnamon, Citrus and amber.

    Pepper/Nutmeg: This one is pretty simple actually. Its a delicate blend of pepper corns blended with Nutmeg. When I initially began making my own pheromone blends I wanted a fragrance that accented the pheromones while not overbearing. What developed was this blend and I can assure you there are elements at play that make this my favorite and most often personally used.

The peppercorn is associated with heat and pepper has historically been used to "open" the nose. Pheromones are known to work through the olfactory sense. This creates a two-fold approach using the pepper to one open the sense to work more vigorously in conjunction with the pheromones and to invoke the sense of heat. When a woman associates heat with a guy the brain is not distinguishing whether she is thinking he makes me hot look wise or pepper wise. Women are also emotional and thus the emotion of heat again trumps to logic of pepper heat. 

Nutmeg historically is associated with warming comfort of hearth and home. Again you have warmth, another term for heat directly associated with the wearer. Another aspect of Nutmeg is the diffusive properties are better than anything I have ever experienced. There is some debate on using citrus as a diffusive property over nutmeg but in numerous unscientific tests by myself Nutmeg always won out in silage and diffusion of the mones. The debate comes from the element that nutmeg has incredible anti-bacterial properties. However in almost every case of citrus used as a diffusive property for pheromones, they all contain a higher degree of anti-bacterial properties.
    
There's quite a bit more to discover with this one, but I always like to leave it to the user to decide for themselves.
    Base Notes: Peppercorn
    Top Notes: Nutmeg

    I like fxs the best, light, fresh, can wear it anywhere, does not clash with other scents and can be easily covered if needed.

    Could there be a better backstory than that of Sultans Oud?

    Of the Xs cover scents I have tried I would give a big thumbs up to Pepper Nutmeg.....lesser kudos to FXS scent. I am not sure it could be as universally good with all scents as Pepper Nutmeg is. I think PN is a fantastic cover for SOB oil.

    I tried Spicebomb with SOB oil and thought it was awful. I have a hard time imagining it being a decent cover for anything.

    I believe anything and everything can work as a cover scent as long as it doesn't have additional pheromones. (Someone please correct me now if I am wrong.) Though, I can offer you much better advice for fragrances than the Choo line

    Some of my colognes I always feel I should not spray them so close (or on top of the mones), but at the same time the additional alcohol should help in diffusal.

    I purchased my most recent order of SOB oil in SpiceBomb rather than my usual Pepper Nutmeg. I intensely dislike the XS SpiceBomb. It was weak and soapy to my nose. I've never smelled the original but I hope it is not this mediocre.

    Can't believe I didn't see this stuck thread before.
    This post was awesome.
    I think I chose correct with Sultans Oud though.

    Thanks S2H, I decided to purchase Evolve oil scented with Le Male. It's a good scent.
    Cool Water also is good, maybe I'll purchase SOB oil scented with Cool Water.

    There is a knock off of Cool Water that you can specify in your order. If you like it, go for it.
