Every guy wants to be able to attract women “just like that,” and pheromone marketers claim to do just that. Some thermal products on the market may indeed be effective, but which are, and which aren’t? Here’s a review of Icebreaker Pheromones, manufactured by Ascent Research Group. I really don’t know how to be politically correct in this review of the so-called Icebreaker Pheromone Cologne? Personally, I thought the days of peddling snake oil on the net were over until I field tested this lovely Icebreaker pheromone cologne!
Please excuse my tone, but as I sit here smiling, finding myself at a loss of words, feeling rather used that I even spent money on this pheromone cologne, I’m trying to figure out how to articulate the fact that I have no real clue what this stuff does, as it clearly did nothing for me, and I used this stuff on and off for months!
I will say this, I have vowed to try to keep this Icebreaker Pheromone Cologne review short and sweet, as I personally do not believe this pheromone cologne really deserves much mention, nor wasted space on my site for that matter! That being said, out of all the pheromone colognes that I have purchased, and that list is rapidly growing, Icebreaker is the first bottle of pheromone cologne that I straight threw away as opposed to allowing it to take up space sitting beside numerous other pheromone colognes, some good, others not so good…No room for Icebreaker on my shelf, I was more disappointed by this stuff than I was with Pherlure cologne, at least Pherlure smells good!
The product claims to have eight sex and social pheromones that draw more attention to you from the opposite sex. As the theory goes, with more attention comes more flirting, and perhaps more attraction and even sexual activity. The product contains the following pheromones: Androstenone, Androstanone, Androstenol, Dehydroisoandrosterone, Epoxyestratrienol, Tetrahydrodeoxycorticosterone, Oxytocin analog.
The manufacturer claims that this will make women pay more attention to you and that further, it will actually entice women to give you kisses, hugs, winks, smiles, and touches. They’ll initiate longer conversations, and your opportunity for getting dates with them increases dramatically. Men, too, find you more “attractive,” not in a sexual sense, but in that it seems to give you more authority with them.
After field testing Icebreaker for at work, at home, out at social functions among friends and strangers, and after very careful consideration I had to come to the conclusion that this stuff is overhyped Garbage! I apologize, I’m usually much more politically correct than this, but I might as well not sugar coat it. I know when a pheromone cologne works at this point, and I certainly know when one does not, this stuff does not…No clue what it does!
BS Marketing and Claims
All I can say at this point is for the numerous marketers out there who are aggressively pimping this stuff to folks that don’t know any better, along with Pherlure I’m quite sure, SHAME!
Just to make sure I was not losing my mind after field testing Icebreaker Pheromone Cologne, “I” even looked around some forums to find mention if Icebreaker by some seasoned and knowledgeable pheromone enthusiasts who use a lot of products and pretty much know their stuff, what did I read?
“About 100% of the advertising you see, especially on the internet, youtube, various websites, etc. is fraud, even when it includes legitimate products. Especially the ones that compare one product to another (and that goes a thousand fold if they are pushing Pherlure….an outright scam)…..pushing Icebreaker (I believe the guy who makes that stuff is still in prison, lol). That product is BS. The other products listed are of poor quality.”
Well, that was refreshing to read, at least I started to think to was not just me!
“Read their website carefully… the things they compare themselves with, like pherlure and athena are widely recognized as garbage….They also claim to be scientists but are still claiming the VNO is the pheromone receptor. That is pretty well discredited by real science. Their own ratings mean absolutely nothing and I haven’t seen a single verified and independent opinion of their products, only their own marketing hype.”
When I read this it started to make more sense, as those Icebreaker folks were trying to persuade people to buy their product by “claiming the VNO is the pheromone receptor..”, which I know, ” is pretty well discredited by real science.” When this claim is usually made these days, it’s usually by marketers pimping a product they know very little if anything about, not a good sign, no?
What People Have To Say
And then the clincher, when I read a well respected and knowledgeable pheromone enthusiast write;
OK, for anyone that’s interested in more information on the Icebreaker product, their claim that it contains Oxytocin had me curious enough to send out a request for information, and here’s what their marketing department had to say about dosage and content levels:
Thank you for your request.
As you correctly guessed, we don’t publish the exact formula. If we did, our competitors could copy it.
However we do publish the compound names that most companies will not.
What I can tell you that the total weight of all pheromone compounds is 15mg per 30ml bottle.
There is about 90 sprays per bottle. That means about 0.17mg per a spray.
The exact weight does not really matter. What does matter is how effective the formula is.
The only way to find out if that will work for you is to try it.
Again, thank you for your interest let me know if you have any other questions.
Enough said? “The only way to find out if that will work for you is to try it…” WTF! Ya, okay, been there done that, can I have my cash back now?
In turn, this is supposed to increase your confidence and give you better self-esteem. If you’re already in a relationship, you’ll notice, according to the manufacturer, that you and your partner will have a stronger connection and experience greater intimacy. Sexual activity, too, is heightened, as is pleasure during sexual activity. And you can have all of this for just $49.95.
The product itself doesn’t seem to do much of anything. Instead, when men use Icebreaker Pheromone, it may induce a kind of psychological benefit in that because men think they’ll be more attractive to women, will draw women to them, will get more smiles, winks, hugs, and so on, they’re more excited and feel more confident.
This, in turn, may, in fact, draw women’s attention — but it’s not the product doing it, it’s the psychological impact of men thinking that the project is working. Because men think the product is working, they feel better about themselves, more confident, and are therefore more attractive to women.
Is It Worth It?
The only good thing I can add is that Icebreaker’s advertising is pretty good! And they do have a decent referral program for marketers, however, I can’t bring myself to recommend this stuff for a commission, I would just plain feel dirty afterwards and would need a long shower.
Since I’m in so foul a mood after wasting my time with Icebreaker Pheromone Cologne, please excuse me if I pretty much let these opinions and experiences speak for themselves, I don’t want to get too crazy with this post, just not worth it! Guys, if you feel compelled to try out Icebreaker Pheromone Cologne, be my guest, good luck to you! If you really must wear a product to give yourself a pheromone boost and therefore more confidence, choose something less expensive for the same effect. Do some research on other pheromone products out there, and choose a less expensive one to try.
