RE: Holy Grail Beta Testing Thread

Yesterday, I put on two sprays of Holy Grail on my neck and went out to run some errands.

I hit my neck with the sprays, since it allows a bit more exposure in this cold weather.

Cover scent: A couple of sprays of Armani Attitude to my chest.

Self-effects: Felt the focus and determination to get all of my errands accomplished.

I had to return a bunch of stuff to Express, so that was my first stop. I ordered some shirts and an overcoat, but somehow the order submitted twice, so I had to return one set to the local store.

The sales clerk was very respectful and even apologized a few times for the delay. Normally, in my town, sales clerks get pissed off when processing returns. Especially with the amount of stuff I was returning, it would be an annoyance. Although I did explain to him that they double shipped the order.

So, an older lady next who was working the register next to his leaned over towards him to get something from under the counter. Her eyes shot straight up to me and I got the much talked about "deer in headlights" look. After 2 seconds, she turned away and went back to her counter to assist another customer.

Next stop was the post office, where the clerk was very nice towards me. He was smiling and chatting it up a little bit with me. My usual clerk (the somewhat heavyset black women, mid-40's) was at the counter next to the one I was standing at. Once I looked over and acknowledged her, her whole face lit up and she gave me a huge smile and hello. Again, very unlike her and I could tell her demeanor towards the other customers was basically slightly standoffish.

Went over to a friends house later in the day to help him with his PC and he was very friendly and respectful. His wife pulled me aside and was telling me that she will be needing help with her PC soon as well and that she'll be in touch.

After leaving their place, I stopped by to get a hot dog. The guy told me it was $2, so I pulled out some cash I had in my pocket. I had a 10 dollar bill and some singles. He looked at my hand and said "the price is higher for you, because you're rich". I was like "it's just a $10 bill, haha". He said "I know, I'm just joking with you". So, either was a small shit test or just the aura coming off me was projecting wealth.

Not much else happened after that. Got home and had an argument with the significant other. She'd calm down after a bit, but then somehow shit would flare back up in the conversation. I guess the mones had worn off by then. Either that, or they converted on the skin to something that would have caused female aggression? Anyone have some thoughts on this?

Does HG feel more alpha or more like a sexual blend?

Is it work safe?

Will you buy it after your free sample runs out?

Hi Jaycee,


HG feels like more of a alpha mix, and it would go well in a work environment. Part of it will indeed depend on your position at the job.

I'm not in a senior leadership position at my job, but I'm high enough up the chain that it works for me. The alpha aspect gives you respect from colleagues and it keeps the ball-busters at bay as I've found. It also keeps your concentration focused on the task at hand.

I'm not sure if what I need is an alpha blend at this stage. I personally am looking for more social stuff right now in order to meet with new people and just have fun overall.

But, HG is definitely powerful stuff and will serve you well.

Event : Banquet / Graduation (indoors/ large crowds)
HG (4) / CS: Only the Brave

I had a school banquet and was accompanied by my gf. Felt a sense of confident and calmness going in. Instantly walking in , I was greeted by fellow classmates with free drinks. Moments later , photos were being taken and I was tugged from both arms to take photos with my classmates. I must admit , I felt a little bad for having my gf wait on the side and hold my drink! I finally got situated , and was escorted to our tabled and went through the evening with greetings from all those who walked past me. I did get compliments from classmates on how sharped I looked and sense of wanting to be around with. Ended the evening winning 2 , $100 pre-paid visa gift cards. And for my lady , well she treated me well that evening. Over all , an excellent evening.

The following morning was my graduation , I had gone early in preparation to walk and I noticed a sense of confidence over come me. I had finished my graduated program so I proudly supported my grad. cap and gown. I had undergrads part ways when I walked towards them. I had smiles left and right from unknown fellow graduates. This in turned cranked up my confidence level even more! I had more classmates tugging away to have their photo taken with me. The sense of being wanted is intoxicating !Dirol

Event: Wal-mart / Gun Range(windy) / Movie Theater (~150 people)
HG (4) in the beginning + (2) later in the day. CS: Usher


I had currently been reporting back on positive feedbacks only but feel the need to report usage without hits. I've had some days where nothing really worth while occurred to take the time to post.I feel that HC has been a hit and miss.

I had some family members in from out of town and decided to take them to the local gun range. Started by heading to wal mart to purchase some ammo. Walked past a few girls (~8/10's) and nothing special. The lady helping me seem to be irritated but its Wal-mart , and I can understand. I tried to spark up a lively convo but no luck.

I continue onward and arrive at the shooting range. It was kinda dead for being mid-day on a Tuesday. It's outdoors and a bit windy. Beautiful day none the less to be outside. There was about ~8 people there in total. (all males , workers + shooters). I had a lively congo with the owner over some guns but didn't notice anything as far as dominant / respect / Alpha hits. Didn't really bother me too much because the visit was more to cater my family from out of town.

I added +2 sprays for the evening which consisted in watching , The Hobbit : An Unexpected Journey (7.2/10) at the mall. The only highlight was finding $30 walking into the mall , which paid for our tickets for the evening. I had some subtle interaction with the person taking ticket stubbs but it was brief. We continue to our seats and sat there for the movie. The part that got me pretty annoyed was a lady with her daughter (who were both ditz and runs in the family) walked across the roll with a huge ass purse / large drink / large popcorn / cell phone blasting /stepping on everyones toes. They both progress to check their phones with the bright screen and leaving up 3 times to the bathroom. I was pretty annoyed.

Just got home a few minutes ago. Over all , self effect , calm. Effects on others , minimum . Longevity ~4-6 hours.

I think its only fair to mention the so-so days when using HG instead of the good days.Soldier

Got an invite yesterday from my neighbors to stop by their place for a drink and to celebrate the holidays.

Dosage: 1 spray Holy Grail to my throat.

Cover scent: A couple of sprays of Diesel Only The Brave to my chest.

Self-effects: None.


The husband and wife couple that invited my S.O. and I are in their early 50's. Nice people, although the wife is a bit materialistic, from what I've heard.

Anyway, we poured some glasses of Chardonnay and we sat around and chatted.

The wife was chatting with my S.O., but after awhile, she turned and stared towards me and started twirling her hair very noticeably.

The husband and I chatted and were just discussing general things overall. Got a vibe of respect from him and he was listening more and letting me talk. Although he's a decent bit older than me and usually tends to be the one that does more of the talking.

The wife ended up going on and on to my S.O. of how ambitious I am and how great of a guy I am. I didn't hear all of it, but my S.O. filled me in afterwards.

The wife also made a comment to me saying "When you become a millionaire, don't forget about us." Crazy.

Eventually, the husband wanted to step outside to smoke a cigarette and I took my wine glass and went outside with him. I actually ended up briefly telling him about beta testing mones (although I didn't say that they also became test subjects, haha). Blum

He knows about mones actually, but he hasn't used them.

He may end up helping me test LadyKiller in the upcoming weeks.

Their daughter came home when we were leaving and said hello and ended up staring at me a decent bit as well till we said our goodbyes and left.

Nice evening overall and good company.

Hello and Happy new year to all,

Okay, so I was given an amazing opportunity to beta test samples of Holy Grail and Alien from HAX but had shit luck when my computer decided to die the morning before I got the goods in the mail. I'm far from rich so I had to use most of the money I had saved up and some Christmas money as well to purchase a new computer that just came in the mail today. Believe me when I say it sucks to get in the habit of checking out pherotruth almost everyday for months and then not be able to get on for weeks, it's almost as bad as when I know I have a package coming in the mail and I have to stand next to the mailbox until the mailman comes because I obviously can't be a normal person and wait patiently lol. In any case I kept a written (yes you read that right... WRITTEN... going old school) journal while I was computer less and have spent the last 30min summarizing everything on here. The good news is that I've had plenty of time to get a feel for these products. Also, I have refrained from lloking at other reviews until I have posted mine so as not to get any preconceptions as to how these should work. So here we go, onward...


Holy Grail -

I have to first point out that I had a near accident when I was taking my goods out of the packaging... I dropped Holy Grail but managed to catch it a fe inches before hitting the kitchen floor... disaster avoided. The bottle is made of glass that seems relatively durable but I'm not sure I want to test just how much it is. The label seems pretty cool as well. It has a picture of a guy you might see during the time of the last supper, holding a cup/goblet... Makes me think of the last half of Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. Seems very fitting for a product named Holy Grail.

I can usually smell mones but I have to say that both Holy Grail and Alien are covered very well. I don't notice the smell of mones unless I seriously pay attention and try to pick out different notes. They have slight different smells to them but they are both similar to the smell of aftershaves to me. Very light not too overpowering and easy to cover. Both remind me of an old version of Aqua Velva that was around about 10 years ago but has since been discontinued unfortunately, would have been the perfect cover.

For me the effects on others seem to last approx 6-8 hours after application and is dependent on the temp which is pretty typical of mones but thought it worth mentioning. When I wore it to the gym it barely made it to the 6 hour mark but just out and about seemed much longer and lasted approx 8-8.5 hours.

I'm not usually one for self effects, they just don't seem to hit me much if any, though there have been some exceptions. With Holy Grail they are very subtle up to the 4th spray and reminds me of the calm feeling I get from Wolf but maybe a little more alpha, and again very subtle for me. Anything above 4 sprays and I get somewhat irritable so I have stayed under that except for the couple of times I went up to 6 sprays. Regardless of sprays they self effects seemed to hit around 10min after application and last and hour or two.

I have tried varying amounts of sprays raging from half a spray (the first halfass spray that primes the rest) up to 6. The effects were pretty subtle with half a spray and were moderate from 1 to 2 and blatant from there to 6, thought not necessarily in a good way. The best and most consistent good hits seemed to come from 2 full sprays. Pretty much any amount above 2 just seemed like overkill and caused some adverse effects like some intimidation or more accurately you seem so high value people have a hard time doing anything around you. I feel the effects on others are somewhere between Wolf and AV. It's almost like a rockstar/VIP feeling to me with plenty of alpha cool vibes and a slight sexual aspect to it. I feel like there is a social aspect to it trying to peek through because there were plenty of times that people seemed like they seriously wanted to open me but it was just a little too much for them. Girls get that starry eyed look as soon as you start a convo with them but the younger ones need you to open them, they usually won't open you. I would say dpending on your job, it could be considered work safe up to 1 or 2 sprays but definitely not if above that amount. Clubbing isn't exactly my thing (I will every now and again with some college buds) but I could see 3 or 4 sprays being good in that kind of situation though I have not tried it myself. Also forgot to mention, I've tried it during day and night time and seems to work for both, you just have to adjust the amount of sprays (less for day and more for night).

Seeing as I'm about to go to a New Years Party (wearing Holy Grail I might add), I will type up my review of Alien tomrrow but it's interesting to say the least. Hats off to HAX for both of these products Hi and thank you again HAX for giving me the opportunity to test them.
