The power of smell is undeniable, as the multi-billion dollar perfume industry testifies. But, is it possible that humans are influenced by airborne chemicals undetectable as odors, called pheromones? It appears so. Scientific studies have actually shown that people who used synthesized pheromone had sex more often. CNN said "The power of scent is undeniable...humans are influenced by airborne chemicals undetectable as odors, called pheromones."
Pheromones are hormones that we naturally secrete that send out signals to the opposite sex (or the same sex) that trigger power sexual response.
Pheromones are odorless, airborne chemical signals that are released by an individual into the environment. These chemicals affect the physiology or behavior of other members of the same species. Although pheromones have been shown to exist in virtually all species of insects and mammals, they also control the behavior of humans, acting as sexual attractants. The secretion of pheromones by humans is believed to dramatically increase both desirability and sexual attractiveness in both men and women.
There are two places on the body that produce the most pheromones. The underarm and pubic areas. Now these are also the areas that we try to cover up odor constantly. Yet underarm and pubic hair is specifically designed to hold odor! The follicle of the hair is shaped like an oval, so that makes the hair curly and more porus than hair on our heads. So it absorbs sweat and pheromones because pheromones arrive via our sweat. In addition to holding pheromones the hair also holds sweat odor. There are women out there who will admit to loving the smell of their man after working in the yard for a few hours. Its not the odor they're attracted to, its the pheromones. Sweat actually starts to smell bad when it comes in contact with bacteria and dead skin cells ~ the longer its there, the more bad the smell becomes. Shaving is one way we can cut down on this odor.
So, if you find yourself feeling attracted to someone, but you don't know why. It may indeed be due to their scent. Or, if you see someone you are attracted to, but when you meet them, the attraction is gone, again, it might be pheromones at work.
