The science and technology of human pheromones:


The bulk majority of human pheromones belong to a group of chemicals known as 16-androstenes. The majority of active human pheromones have an unsaturated double bond at the 16th carbon of the molecular structure. However, there are active pheromones which lack this group, such as our proprietary androstanone, and are known as androstanes. Androstanes are more polar than androstenes, and hence are hygroscopic and water soluble (this is inherently interrelated to increased efficacy at receptor sites via increased membrane permeability).

All known human pheromones contain an oxygen atom bound to the 3rd carbon in A-ring: such as in the form of a keto, or an alcohol, acetate, sulfate, or other functional groups. The keto or hydroxy groups are most commonly found at this position. Compounds with 3-OH groups tend to have stronger effects upon regulation of currents within the hypothalamus.

Compounds which have ionic functional groups at this position have superior performance versus those without. It appears as though this is due to the greater water-solubility and hence targeting affinity for the receptor sites within the olfactory bulb and accessory olfactory system. The enhanced electronegativity of the molecule may also enhance the affinity for the chemosensory receptors.

There are several compounds known which have functional groups at the 17th carbon in D-ring. Depending on the type of functional group, this substitution may either decrease or increase the performance of the pheromone significantly.17-one or 17-ol groups tend to reduce performance, whereas 17-Carboxyl groups may enhance performance, and whereas allene or aromatic groups may have great increases in performance, with a significant change in the character of the parent compound.



All pheromone chemicals are assigned a nomenclature based upon their alpha, beta, gamma, and delta attributes. These attributes define the psychological profile of any given pheromone chemical. This information is useful when selecting the appropriate components of a pheromone formula, and allows for one to model whether the formula will be primarily alpha or beta driven, and for what purpose the formula may be applied.

We have orchestrated a variety of psychological tests within the domain of real-world activity. We have used pattern-recognition to assign a logical trend in the observed data and have mathematically modeled a logic that correlates to the observed psychological trends. From this we have derived our Core Logic technology: This fundamental technology allows for us to model the components of a pheromone formula, and allows for us to expeditiously engineer A pheromone formula to behave in a certain way, or to serve a specific purpose.



Alpha ≈ Alpha Male Aura

The Alpha Male Aura (or AMA) is a very important pheromone signature specifically, it is the primary driving force behind a sexually-driven formula, and works best for non-passive women; it creates an aura of male dominance and masculinity.

However, a strongly alpha formula will intimidate and or turn-off the more passive Beta women, sensing his potential for multiple partners on a primal level. Since however the majority of women are non-passive, the alpha male aura is an especially important aspect of the formula.

The strongly alpha formula will affect men in certain ways: other men will become more passive and less affirmative to the wearer. A minor portion of men will become more aggressive however, if they feel challenged by the alpha aura.

Androstanone is an especially important buffer for this phenomenon signature, as it strongly reduces the likelihood of aggression by averting the sensation of threat.

It is important to note that the strong alpha formula is not necessarily for all male wearers, since it essentially says that the wearer is superior to most everyone else. If the wearer is the more passive Beta male, then it may result in challenge by other men (to reestablish their dominance), and may result in women displaying confusion of the wearers presentation.

A strong alpha formula should be balanced with a moderate-strength beta-formula, so as to broaden the scope of applicability to all male wearers, and to obtain the best overall results with women.

A potent alpha formula, which is not balanced with beta characteristics, will cause intrinsically non-alpha wearers to feel anxious or uncomfortable as they will be essentially intimidating themselves with their pheromone signature. This is especially so if the formula also lacks androstanone.



Beta ≈ Beta Male Aura

The beta male aura is an equally important pheromone signature specifically it will drive a more relaxed, confident and calm encounters. The beta aura is also virtually universal and all-inclusive, except with women who are extremely socially aggressive.

The Beta aura has a less powerful initial effect versus an Alpha aura, yet it will drive both a strong social reaction (acceptance, respect by peers and women), as well as open doors to sexual encounters it is more difficult to obtain an impulsive sexual encounter with a beta aura, but does foster long-term connection.

The Beta aura is better suited for male wearers that are not necessarily physically superior to most other men (as an Alpha aura implies). It is for the wearers who are predominantly personality driven. However, a strongly-beta formula should be balanced with at least some alpha characteristics.

Lastly, it is noteworthy to mention that a Beta aura will also directly increase the self-esteem and confidence of the wearer.



Gamma ≈ Feminine Aura

The Feminine aura is useful and relevant when in the absence of, or especially with a negative Alpha aura since the Alpha aura strongly negates and reduces the magnitude of impact of the Feminine aura. When there is a lack of, or negative value of the Alpha aura, the Feminine aura plays an important role in several different situations: The most common application is for women to attract men since it strongly boosts womens natural pheromone signature with synthetic substances which act far more powerfully on men than do a womans natural pheromones.



Delta ≈ Magnitude of change

This extremely valuable variable is input into a variety of other math equations, when used internally for designing a pheromone formula for a given purpose. This value is used for determining concentrations of each component that are necessary to change, when modifying the target application from one to another. The exact output value is usually inversely proportional to numeric input values.

The primary focus of alpha-dreams is the manufacturing of pheromone commodities for both retail and wholesale markets. We endeavor to manufacture, market, and distribute the most advanced human pheromone technology which science can offer, while encompassing the fine arts and ideology of the ancients within our products, presentation, and marketing vehicle.

A percentage of our income is dedicated to funding additional research and development of human pheromone technology. We endeavor to continue our research with great vigor, and to incorporate any new technologies within alpha-dream products exclusively.

The primary scope of our objectives for research and development include the following:


Understand the complex psychology and mechanism of action that each pheromone chemical exhibits

Understand how to model and predict the behavior of a formula with a number of different pheromone chemicals: I.e. perfection of core-logic technology

Understand and explain the mechanisms which drive the inherent activity of human pheromones

Consider the aforementioned topics while selecting new pheromone technologies to be studied and tested.

Subject new beta technologies to testing in real-world environments, so as to determine: activity and psychological attributes. After these tests, the development is patented and becomes known as an alpha technology.

Index and catalogue new alpha technologies for use in alpha-dream products, or for use in other custom manufacturing applications under license.


All of the pheromone chemicals which we use for manufacturing are guaranteed at minimum 98% purity, with the exception of purified isomers, which are minimum 97% purity. This also means that our ingredients used for manufacturing are of exceptionally high quality.

The specific purity of all pheromone ingredients are determined via independent analysis (high performance liquid chromatography), thus ensuring that ingredients meet our quality control standards before they are used for manufacturing our products.

The impurities seen within our pheromones, are usually 1.9% residual solvents (acetates, alcohols, etc), with less than 0.1% of remaining constituents. As for isomers at 97% (such as alpha-androstenol), there is seen about 1% of the beta-isomer (which is impossible to completely remove), along with 1.9% solvents, and 0.1% of remaining constituents.

The use of high quality pheromone chemicals is an important factor to consider when purchasing pheromone products.

The use of High quality pheromone ingredients ensures the best possible performance of the finished product, and ensures a crisp, pleasant smell of the final product.
