OK, first things first, does it work? It's hard to say. I do seem to feel a little calmer and happier when I'm wearing it, and both men and women do seem a little friendlier, but is it actual response to pheromones, the placebo effect coloring my perceptions, or just a simpler response to a pleasant vanilla fragrance that I enjoy for its own sake and goes well with my skin chemistry? It's really impossible to be sure. Still, if you're a fiend for vanilla scents in general like I am, it's worth playing with; I mostly got this to layer with conventional fragrances, adding a stronger vanilla note to things that needed a little boost, and it does that admirably; any pheromone effect, if it's there, is a pleasant bonus. ;)

Product is oil based, so while it's not a very big bottle, a little goes a long way (especially when you're mixing with other scents); the rollerball applicator is easy to use, portable (they even include a nice little velvet pouch to protect it if you want to carry it in your purse), and totally discreet -- the bottle and pouch are unlabeled, so there's nothing to indicate it's anything other than a plain vanilla fragrance oil. The scent is nice, warm and soft, and not sticky-sweet like a lot of modern vanilla scents out there. It's nice all by itself, and blends very well with other fragrances. If you plan to wear this by itself, note that like most fragrance oils, the "throw" or sillage is not as strong as alcohol-based perfumes; the scent is soft and hovers close to the skin, rather than being very noticeably strong even from a distance.

Nice stuff, no real complaints -- I'm only giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because it's pretty much impossible to judge the accuracy of the claims of the pheromone effect, but just as a fragrance it's perfectly pleasant and wearable!

This is a pretty scent (vanilla), but it does nothing and is just advertising with no delivery if you are getting it for anything other than a vanilla scent. It is a fragrance oil. I have someone currently attracted to me, and I feel I am an attractive person and the only comment I have received was "that's a nice vanilla smell." It has done nothing to enhance sexual attraction of men to me in any way. If you purchase this product, just knwo that you are paying for an oil based vanilla scent. It smells nice (just vanilla, the kind of scent you might get at a lotion chain store), but does nothing else. Essentially it is "snake oil" advertising.

      Comments about Wallace-O'Farrell Bare Essence Androstenol for Women, Vanilla, 10 ml:

      When I got this perfume I was really excited to try it. It was packaged nicely in a white box and inside the box the perfume was in a red velvet-like bag. But it smells like a very, very cheap vanilla candle...it lasts a while, but thats not really a good thing. And I definitely didnt notice ANY positive reactions. In fact, my husband made a really weird face and asked if I had got a new candle or something in the house cause he smelled something stinky!!

        Comments about Wallace-O'Farrell Bare Essence Androstenol for Women, Vanilla, 10 ml:

        Ok well I got the plain one b/c I thought it would be interesting to try on my husband and friends sens most of my friends r well men I'm a gamer so not a lot of girl's that r friends for me lol.

        So I got the no scent roll on oil Wallace-O'Farrell bare essence androstenol for women and thought great time to debunk this stuff or see if it really works so right I put some on behind my ear's,wrist ,between my breasts and a lil under my nose b/c I thought when ever I breath out it would help spread the scent a lil.

        Headed over to hang with some of my friends for some GAME time :D got to love WOW so I get to my friends and I set up my laptop and it was not right away but I did note that some of my friends where sitting a lot closer than thy normally would but again who knows right guys r odd to begin with lol and I did get a lot of complements on my body spry even though I was just wearing the no scent roll on oil Wallace-O'Farrell bare essence androstenol for women lol and that is another thing that is odd most of the time thy don't sit that close to me and thy have never commented on the way I smelled before lol and I have been pretty smelly sometimes before but right not the point I think this stuff dues work a lil my husband seems to like my new scent also even when I'm just wearing the Wallace-O'Farrell bare essence stuff even though I'm thinking of getting the vanilla or flowery one but will not wear this stuff to anymore outings with my friends that was just to Twilight zoneish for me rofl.

        all the same don't get this just to get men I really feel it works but please just get for the smell ok.

          Comments about Wallace-O'Farrell Bare Essence Androstenol for Women, Vanilla, 10 ml:

          I liked the scent but it caused a very red rash everywhere I applied it. I wish I could tell whether or not it worked but since I was only able to use it once, I am unsure. The scent is not very strong, so I think if it were to work, you would have to be in close proximity to the one you were trying to attract.

            Comments about Wallace-O'Farrell Bare Essence Androstenol for Women, Vanilla, 10 ml:

            I tried it out as soon as I received it (I am sensitive to smell and would have immediately returned it if it caused headaches) and I find that I keep breathing deeply so that I can smell it. It is very warm, subtle, and not overpowering at all. Whether subliminal or not, I found myself... interested, so to speak. So, for that alone, it is worth it.

            ...then, my boyfriend arrived, and kissed me casually as he usually does, and bent to sniff my neck. Lets say we enjoyed it.

            Have not worn it in a social setting, so I can't speak to that right now, but hope to soon.

                    When I put some of this behind my ears, it seems to put me in a better mood. Perhaps it is the idea of wearing a supposed aphrodisiac, I don't know. But I definitely smile more and that does attract people. I have been told repeatedly that I can be very intimidating, but since I started wearing this product to the gym and other public places, people have began to approach me more frequently, men as well as women.

                    The smell can be a bit odd at first, with definite vanilla mixed with something undefined... but it is pleasant.

                      This spray did make me aroused as in I consciously thought about sex more often. If stirring up those sentiments within you works to make others more drawn to you so be it.

                        Oh wow, my fiance went crazy when he got a whiff of this stuff! He LOVES it! He was saying "YOU smell soooo good, what IS that wonderful aroma?" Haha it was great!

                        Of course it helps when the person is already attracted to you, but it did boost my confidence and I love the smell regardless of if it works or not. But this one is fiance tested and approved!

                        I'll definitely be buying more!
