Seperate pheromones and wear them

Pheromones definitely play a role in human courtship. They affect attraction between people and may improve the stability of relationships. Some people buy human pheromones in an attempt to attract a partner but, of course it will not work: their own pheromones are in conflict with what they're wearing and much fresher to boot. Furthermore it could never result in a stable relationship, they would have to wear the scent for the rest of their lives!

But if a person's own pheromones were present in larger quantities the chances of attracting an actually compatible mate would be improved.

The product is a distilled version of the scentless pheromones you yourself produce. You send in a sample of your sweat and a company will analyze its chemical components and create a like mixture but without the salt, waste products and whatever the bacteria eat that makes a person stink. Thus armed with the smell YOU smell like you can be more successful in love.

       Separate from your main concept, this part is wrong. Variety often kindles attraction, and changes in pheromones would help.   

       There’s an old joke that explains this better, but I’ll have to look it up to get the wording right.

       There it is - “The Coolidge Effect”   

       The President and Mrs. Coolidge were being shown around an experimental government farm. When she came to the chicken yard she noticed that a rooster was mating very frequently. She asked the attendant how often that happened and was told, “Dozens of times each day.” Mrs. Coolidge said, “Tell that to the President when he comes by.” Upon being told, Coolidge asked, “Same hen every time?” The reply was, “Oh no, Mr. President, a different hen every time.” Coolidge: “Tell that to Mrs. Coolidge!”

       I think this is an interesting idea.   

       If you are obsessed with yourself you could also give a jar to your lover.
