Worst perfume EVER!!
If you like Bath and Body Works or youthful smells similar to that, you’ll HATE this. I stupidly thought it would smell good based on other reviews. DUMB! It smells WORSE than Estee Lauder and that grandma stench. I kept it on for a while at home and thought that horrible smell would fade, leaving a not so bad smell. Nope. I had to wash it off my wrist after a while because it was so bad. BAD I SAY!!Don’t do what I did and buy perfume you’ve not smelled. Once I find a post office, I’m sending this sucker back. I’m going back to Bath and Body Works and Victoria’s Secret for perfume. This was disgusting.
Evocative and bold
I’ve been wearing Pheromone on and off since its introduction and consider it my signature scent. Unlike another reviewer, I find it fine for daytime, though I suppose it may depend on your personality. I had a lot of attention from coworkers (men) when I was younger and wearing this. As long as Marilyn keeps making it, I’ll keep buying it!I don’t see why it’s considered light, floral and romantic, though. I always think it smells like mystery and gold.
This is one of those perfumes you must test for yourself before buying or you are destined to be dissapointed. I bought a sample vial because I read so many good reviews and am glad I only spend three dollars! This stuff reeks! This is worse than grandma scent, its nauseating. I asked my husband what he thought and his response was: “Phew! What the hell is that?”Yeah. It does last a very long time but what’s the use.
I didn’t know if I would like it
I didn’t know if I would like this, as I normally prefer very “clean” or single-flower scents. I don’t like Opium-type spicy perfumes. However, when I got this earlier today, I did NOT sniff it straight from the bottle. After reading dozens and dozens of reviews on it, I knew that it had to “warm up” to my body chemistry before I would know what it really did for me. I lifted my hair and sprayed a little on the back of my neck. A few hours later, I can tell you that I absolutely LOVE this! It smells great and has a bit of a “clean” tone to it. I intend to stick with this one. 🙂
Pheromone is a green chypre with a little ‘c’. It’s very wearable for someone (like me) who enjoys this category but not the big beast, oakmossy Chypres with a capital ‘C’. White florals thankfully don’t dominant the composition, like in some green florals.Pheromone is a classic that can hold its own up against any number of famous scents. To me, Pheromone is a stronger, dirtier YSL Y, which often is considered a reference green chypre, albeit a prim one. If you could turn Estee Lauder Alliage into a chypre, this is what you would get. Only difference is … I love Alliage, not Pheromone.This is a very adult, old school fragrance. I imagine a female in a 40s peplum dress, complete with a hat and fur stole.
One of my favorites
This is a very mature scent, but can be overwhelming and heavy, so you should use sparingly.
I have been wearing Pheromone for many years. This was a great purchase for the price. The Parfum arrived in good order and promptly. Therefore, I would highly recommend the product. DAME HILDA
I love it!
at first i was hesitant to buy this because mNY says it fits for an old people…well, this perfume shouLd use by a LADY-or any woman who wants seduction, passion…the first time i used this i told myself,”what a strong smell”..but as time goes by, i am starting to like it and gets addicted with the smell… It is true that it will blend to your natural scent… Of all the perfume i used- this is the only perfume that a stranger told me i had a great smell and even though i was 20 feet away from him, he smelled me already… I also tried many pheromones perfume , i wasted lots of money but at last I found the right perfume FOR me… I also ordered destiny and it smelled awesome too… So far, i will forever use this perfume as long as i live…(:
Agreeing with almost everyone else
I love this scent and it’s the only one my husband ever commented on. And it lasts forever in that I only wear it on special occasions and it just takes a drop.But I guess it’s not for everyone.I first smelled it on a friend about 30yrs ago and have loved it ever since.But I agree… if you can try a sample first, by all means do so. I’m wondering if the reviewer who hated it may have put on too much.MEF
LIGHTER VERSION OF NORELL
THIS COULD BE A SISTER OF NORELL BY FIVE STAR FRAGRANCE. A VERY GREEN DRYDOWN ON IT. THE POWDER THAT I LOVE SO MUCH FADES INTO THE ABYSS. I WANT POWDER NOT NORELL. I AM NOT A BIG FAN OF NORELL. ITS NOT THE WORSE THING IVE EVER WORN BUT NOT MY FAVORITE BY A LONG SHOT EITHER.
love this stuff…!
everytime i wear this, i get compliments throughout the day. long after i’ve stopped smelling the aroma, others around me still do. it’s not a strong scent, it’s just enough. i’ve had so many inquiries as to “what are you wearing?”. i love that it takes on a slightly different smell to whomever is wearing it. makes me feel a bit unique.
