On every man’s shopping list

24 Oct
Today in the mail I got a catalogue for "The Added Touch", a Canadian owned and operated catalogue company that I’ve never heard of, but which apparently has been around since 1961.
 
There are clothing items, purses, gloves, ornaments, and other little gadgets, but the following item caught my eye:
 
BEDROOM CANDLE
A sensual gift for lovers! Not your average candle, our exotic Bedroom Candle is scented with a special secret blend of pure essential oils & spiked with natural pheromone alternatives. Pheromones are substances which trigger arousal & feelings of well being. Burns for over 50 hours. From Australia.
I had been under the impression that human pheremones were kind of like snake oil, but of course if the candle has natural pheremone ALTERNATIVES, well…!

    Sheesh.  It\’s like we live in a society of alternatives.  Sugar alternatives, milk alternatives, lifestyle alternatives.  Variety is the spice of life, but I\’ll stick to getting my human pheromones from the source.
