Male attractant pheromone bracelet - perfume by Evolved Novelties - review by Kayla

The Placebo Effect

The Male Attractant Pheromone Bracelet doesn't seem to work at all. However, it's possible that the bracelet would provide the placebo effect and increase your confidence, so it might be worth checking out. At the same time, it's still a cute bracelet.

extremely useful review
The Male Attractant Pheromone Bracelet is an Evolved Novelties product that is made from silicone/rubber. This bracelet is intended to attract males through the use of the pheromones in it. It has the words "Evolved World" etched into the side of the bracelet. The bracelet is about a 1/2 inch in width, and the View Actual Product Size widget seems to be accurate. The bracelet is supposed to last 45 days after first being worn on the skin. I haven't owned this for 45 days, so I can't support nor deny that claim. The version to be worn by females is pink while the version to be worn by males is black.

The packaging for the bracelet is really simple. The bracelet comes in a little plastic baggie in which the bracelet is just sitting in front of the cardboard that gives instructions about the toy. This packaging is not suitable for reuse, and it has to be tossed after opening it.

To be completely honest, I can't say that I had my hopes up for the Male Attractant Pheromone Bracelet. I've worked a bit into psychological research (my major), and I've tried some other products before that claimed to be pheromone-based with no success involved. However, the bracelets ended up looking really cute, so I was hoping to find that the bracelet would, at the very least, make a cute, "discreet" way to display my sex toy proclivities.

The cardboard back states how this bracelet is supposed to work. This one is supposed to mix with your sweat glands to "improve" the attractiveness of your own pheromones to attract the opposite sex. This means that they aren't supposed to work right away, and they should, in theory, be most potent after exercising.

The bracelet is really discreet. Unless someone knows what the "Evolved" company is, they won't even begin to guess that's what this bracelet is for. Even if someone does know what "Evolved" is, you can easily explain "Evolved World" as something that is supposed to represent a movement towards no violence or something. It just reminds me of one of those LiveStrong or other types of bracelets that you see on people's wrists to support different causes.

The edges of the bracelet aren't quite finished. It's hard to see it in the EF pictures, but if you look, you can see spots where the bracelet still has a little bit of extra material hanging off the sides. It looks like the mold wasn't cut with great accuracy. It's barely noticable, and it doesn't end up being scratchy, so it's not a big deal, but it's something I noticed.

Something else of note is the material of the bracelet. I have no idea what it is. It smells like a mixture between silicone and rubber. The packaging states that it's pure silicone, but the bracelet doesn't smell like any other silicone item I own. (It's worth noting that the odd smell is not very noticable unless you hold it up to your nose, and this smell could also possibly be attributed to the chemicals the bracelet was treated with.) It's also pretty stretchy for a silicone item, so if I had to guess, it's probably some sort of silicone-material compound.

One of my biggest problems with this bracelet is how tight it is. The material doesn't stretch much, and when it does stretch, it goes right back to the tiny set-point right away. For my large wrists, this actually was uncomfortably tight. It didn't cut off circulation, but if I moved the bracelet, you could see the imprint it was leaving on my skin. It was not pleasant to wear. The boyfriend, however, has smaller wrists, and it was actually skin-tight (but not unpleasantly so) on his wrists. It looks like Evolved really needed to up the size on this one. It's worth noting that it doesn't pull hair while worn though.

We didn't find that this makes the boyfriend any more or less willing to jump me. That's sad. It was worth the try though, and I wore it for a couple days. I had intention to wear it longer, but it just was too tight. The boyfriend wore it for a couple days though, and there was no sign of him getting "jumped" either, so it seems like the pheromones in this bracelet don't work or are non-existent.

So the pheromone thing? I'm not sold. The problem with this being that you have two problems involved: the placebo effect and sweat's natural abilities.
If we consider how effective placebos have shown to be in the medical community, it makes sense that, if we THINK we're sexier, we might be more likely to approach people and do it with more confidence. On another hand, we bought this bracelet at a "sex toy store", and as such, it may feel pretty naughty to wear it in public which, again, will probably increase our confidence. For this reason, the bracelet may end up working - not because of the pheromones but because we think it should be working and it effects our behavior.

For another, the bracelet claims that it needs sweat for it to work. This is suspicious on its own. Why? Because our sweat is what releases quite a bit of hormones. Have arm pit sweat? You're releasing pheromones. Same to be said with genital sweat glands. It's supposed to be undetectable in scent to our noses, but it's supposed to effect our brains. Thus, if our sweat naturally releases pheromones, it makes me question how well this was intended to work, in the first place, if it requires sweat to work.

Sorry guys. Done with the psych lesson for today.

All things considered, it doesn't seem to have any sort of "special" ability. It's a bit too tight, and while it makes a cute bracelet on its own that I'd consider wearing (if it wasn't so tight), it doesn't seem to attract the opposite sex. This, in itself, would be warrant for one-star, but because of the opportunity or the placebo effect to work, I'm going to go with 2.
Follow-up commentary
We still don't like this pheromone bracelet. Honestly, as we couldn't even wear it as it was too tight, I think we threw it away. It's a cute design, but the pheromone aspect didn't seem to work.

    Thanks for the review, Mistress Kay.

    Did you try the flame test for silicone? That might solve the question.

    Just to get an idea, what is the circumference of the bracelet? I have fairly slim wrists and I might want to try this, just for fun.

    We have the female attractant one and it doesn't smell like rubber at all. I am guessing it's the male one with the funny smell. We have that one coming in the mail too. I was really attracted to the smell of the female attractant one (although doubt the actual pheromone capabilities too). We wanted to see if the same is true of this one. I am guessing the stretch is due to the silicone being cut thin. The thinner it is, the more stretch it will seem to have. I don't doubt that it is 100% silicone, but maybe we could test it? Care to offer yours up to experimentation with a lighter?

    LMAO P'Gell has the same idea. I must have been writing when she posted.

    Great review hun! I think I'm going to pass on these!
  • Kayla
    @Lauren, P'Gell: I thought about flame testing it, but A) I hate fire. B) I don't know what "pheromone" chemicals were included with the bracelet, and those said chemicals could be flammable which would A) Be dangerous, and B) Taint the results. Conclusion? Flame testing is probably a bad idea.

    It does smell odd though.

    I tend to be very sceptic also when it comes to pheromones, and I totally agree about the placebo effect. Thanks for trying out though.
  • namelesschaos
    Thanks for the review. I was wondering how exactly one review an item that basically a placebo and you did a great job of it.
  • ~LaUr3n~
    @Mistress K- Good point! That might not be safe. I JUST got mine in the mail. I don't smell a damn thing. WTF? The other one we have smells wonderful! It smells like rubber faintly to me too. I'm really dissapointed.
