I literally just received this email a moment or two ago:
From: Tomas Bain
Subject: Beware of imitators, this is the original men’s phermone
Remember how you felt when your dream girl shot you down? Well now you never have to feel that way again! Pheromones have been proven to work, and are guaranted to increase your attractiveness to women of all ages. Just look at some of the testimonials we have received back from 100% satisfied repeat customers! :
“I’ve always had a problem approaching girls. They would just walk past me like I didn’t exist. I sometimes felt like they purposely would not give me any attention just because they were snobby and stuck up. Now, when I use Ultra Allure Pheromones, it’s alot easier to approach girls because THEY are usually the ones that will smile at me first or make eye contact.”
Robert K, Boise Idaho
“I saw you guys offered a moneyback guarantee, so I though I would give it a go(I had nothing to lose). Well how glad am I that I did! My first night out with a little Ultra Allure on me I had 4 different girls ask me what I was wearing and what I was doing later(I met up with the hottest of the 4 ) Now I don’t even leave the house without throwing on a few dabs of Ultra Allure– its my (not so) secret weapon! I can honestly say this product truly works, women are really drawn to you once they catch a little bit of the scent.”
Brad M. Kentucky

Remove you e-mail
I love how carefully crafted the email is and then at the end it provides a link that says “remove you e-mail” when I never gave them my email in the first place.
Anyway, for those of you who aren’t up on the scientific research, the best that’s been found in the study of human pheromones so far is that women do respond to the scent of male sweat by altering the length of their menstrual cycles and perhaps their mood, but that’s about it. The idea that the mere whiff of human pheromones is going to make woman jump into the sack with you is wishful thinking at it’s worst.
So how much are these snake oil salesman going to hit up for when you order their products? Why a mere $69.95 (normally $109.95 the site proudly boasts) for a single bottle of unspecified quantity, but you can save up to $100 by ordering six bottles for the low low price of $249.95! Of course there are other sites out there selling similar
bullshit products for as little as $20, but the folks behind Ultra Allure Pheromones have an answer to that right in their FAQ:
I found a site selling Pheromones for $20! Why should I pay more for yours?
We would suggest you take a logical look at the site and the product. Chances are that the brand they are selling is a cheap imitation knockoff of a quality product like ours. Buying a cheap Pheromone may help you think you’re attracting others, but in reality it will have absolutely no effectiveness and value to you, as you will attract no members of the opposite sex. ?
Our Ultra Allure formula is not only 100% original, but it is made only with the very best ingredients. By “best”, we mean effective . We want our customers to return to us repeatedly for business.
Our formula is sold at a price identical to most of the industries leading Pheromone manufacturers. The difference is that our product has an added essence inspired by TommyBoy™ cologne, giving it the advantage over others. And that’s what you will have with Ultra Allure , an advantage over others in attracting women.
Oh that’s some funny shit right there.
The website URL indicates it’s out of Hong Kong, home to a lot of bullshit products, and it’s a subdomain for another site that sells, wait for it… a Penis Enlargement Patch! Who would’ve guessed that? You know it’s going to be good when they start off with a claim like:
“In a poll conducted by Durex™ Condoms, 67% of women said they were unhappy with their lover’s penis size.”
With no link to the poll in question given. Visiting the Durex Condom website we can see that there are a number of polls they’ve done over the years, but none of them seem to contain this startling revelation that most women are unhappy with the size of their partner’s willy. The truth is that penis size is pretty much an exclusively male worry as most studies published seem to indicate that woman are more than happy with the size of their partners:
For their part, women appear to be very accepting of male endowment, the survey found. But even though 85 percent of women said they had no problem with their boyfriend’s or husband’s size, nearly half (45 percent) of all males surveyed said they wished for something larger. That number rose to 54 percent among males who rated their penis length as just “average.”
“The really good news for men, though, was that only 6 percent of women considered their partner ‘smaller than average,’” Frederick pointed out. (For the record, Frederick said the most reliable U.S. studies peg “average” penis size at an erect length of approximately 5.5 inches.)
Taking a closer look at the website domain via a WhoIs search we learn that it’s registered to a Shirley Floyd who set it up 02-24-2007 for a single year registered to a Yahoo! Mail account. If that doesn’t send up red flags all over the place then you’re a moron. You’d be lucky to find that this domain is even still active in a month’s time.
It’s a proven money maker for lots of people selling snake oil. Play on their fears of inadequacy with promises of easy solutions providing overwhelming results. The penis patch website promises you will “drastically enlarge the penis length and width to sizes previously thought impossible” and the pheromone site promises nonsense like the following:
Imagine this scenario. You’re out clubbing with your friends. You notice a beautiful woman across the room. Under normal circumstances she wouldn’t give you the time of day, but you know one thing she doesn’t. You’re wearing Ultra Allure pheromones . You walk up to her beaming with confidence. She senses someone approaching, turns around and doesn’t take her eyes off you until she leaves your place the next morning. Poor girl, she never had a chance.
If it worked that well it would probably be considered a form of date rape drug, but don’t let pesky moral issues stand between you and some hot action tonight! All it takes is your willingness to send large sums of cash to a foreign nation for a bottle of smelly liquid with dubious claims!
