In the Hebrew mystic all senses are considered as giving pleasure to the body, except the sense of small that was designed to give pleasure to the soul.
However, Hebrew mystic is not the only one to consider perfumes as a spiritual affair.
The texts of the scents of the soul are all about olfactory psychology and philosophy.
A perfumer without philosophy is like an artist without inspiration, not worth much more than an old pair of socks dropped on the roadside.
In a pheromone talk, speaking about spiritual affairs would seem out of place, but we are talking about perfume, and this is where it comes to the point.
Saying that pheromones are just sex would be like saying that there is nothing more in life than chemistry, or like saying that there is no spirituality in sex.
I have been selling perfumes in the street for years before setting up a company, and every young boy and young girl were looking for a perfume that would make him trail someone of the opposite sex.
And I was wondering, how is it possible that although they are being so thirsty of each other they never meet. It is because men and women do not search only for sex from each other, they search for an encounter with a soul, and this is also what the real meaning of sex is.

I have learned that a woman’s natural scent is a primary governor of my relationship with her. In this discussion it is imperative that I early confess the power that aroma has in my life. I search for the scent of virtually all things — unconsciously, as this has more often than not been pointed out to me by others. One of my first reactions to virtually all encounters in the physical world is to smell the object: person, rock, plant, water, food (of course), paper, etc.
So a woman’s scent is at the top of a pyramid of experiential cues in my relationship with her. I am blessed to have a partner today whose fragrance is so appealing and welcome to me — like a draft of priceless perfume that elevates our spirit. Indeed, I am inspired (great word!) to find or create a perfume for her that complements and exalts her natural musk. I look forward to this with great anticipation!
I do have a practical question for you, AbdesSalaam. My girlfriend and I have both agreed that the perfumes she has been using are no longer appropriate for her at her age (46). (They are more suited to younger bodies and noses.) I envision something for her that expresses and complements her maturity, wisdom and grace. There should be a pheromonal element, but grounded in jasmine and dark spice. Any guidance you can give in choosing a “midlife” perfume would be most welcome. Have you concocted such?
Thank you in advance for any wisdom you can share!

Night Blossom, Pheromone for woman, Gipsy Queen, or more simply a single note pheromone: Ambergris, Civet or Hyraceum.

Well, she’s of partial Romanian extraction, so Gypsy Queen seems like a good place to start!
