How is this different from Smells Sexy?

I'm not seeing a difference.

I am sorry if I have insulted or seems negative towards you. I am curious about your perspective on this to get a better understanding.

No worries. I don't have a perspective, I was just asking whether this was a duplicate trope. It obviously is not a duplicate.

Kuma (talkcontribs)

Thank you, that gives me a large amount of relief.

I didn't even hear about this other trope until today. Here is the description from Smells Sexy: This is the The Nose Knows version of Mr. Fanservice / Hello, Nurse! / Ms. Fanservice. It is the reason why humans invented perfume and cologne. A character with Super Senses will probably be attracted to a person by their smell, especially if they've got some doggish attributes. Both vampires and werewolves are likely to note that their victim/lover smells good.

From what I can tell it talks about how these pheromones makes a person attracted especially those with superhuman nose. The trope I wish to make uses the superpower of pheromones to be used that affects those around him that causes other affect beside some form of targeted attraction. I will use on of my example such as SPH from elDive where it is a power used by various alien species. The main character shares SPH with the symbiote Drew where it takes his emotions and materializes it into a form of attacked based on his economics experiences. Another character's SPH can come in a different form such as getting wings for flight and creating rings that can cut through aliens with ease.

There are examples that comes from Marvel comics like Jessica Drew aka Spiderwoman where she can secrete a pheromone that can cause a person to feel fear, attraction, or attraction on other people. Miranda Leevald or Stacy X can emit pheromones that affect bodily function like vomiting, orgasm, rectal problems, nausea and the like through skin contact. Lauri or Wallflower can generate an airborne pheromone that can cause a chemical imbalance that can lead to changing people's moods to match hers.

From what I could tell, I wanted to show the diverse effect of pheromone-based superpowers rather than making the person just attracted to one person. These examples doesn't follow Smells Sexy and they don't even sound sexy unless I am missing something.
