Scents That Attracts

Several controlled research suggested that attraction to the opposite-sex isn't only because of physical attraction, but mostly because of our olfactory senses. According to many scientists, humans are also known to secrete pheromones which is similar to what animals mostly use.


How does the opposite-sex attract you? Is it their eyes? Their smile? Their body? The way they walk? The way they stand? Is it their buttocks? Is their muscle? Is it their boobs? Or is it because of their smell? Believe it or not, many researchers have pointed out that attraction to the opposite-sex is mainly because of their smell. 

Several controlled research suggested that attraction to the opposite-sex isn't only because of physical attraction, but mostly because of our olfactory senses. According to many scientists, humans are also known to secrete pheromones which is similar to what animals mostly use. 

What are pheromones?
In the animal kingdom, pheromone works as a form of a social response. Typically in liquid form, animals and insects leave secretions of these chemicals as a way to give information to other animals or insects of the same species.

 These secretions or pheromones acts as a way to inform an animal or insect of the same species if the secreting individual is ready for mating or as a territorial sign. In human, pheromones are mostly known as a form of attraction.

Few well-controlled scientific studies have ever been published suggesting the possibility of pheromones in humans. According to many these researchers, pheromones in humans mostly works as a trigger for a chemical reaction to its receiver. 
Popular case of pheromone use involves the McClintock effect, in which women pheromones are said to trigger a special reaction in other women, such as their menstrual cycles.

Pheromones in the market
However, pheromones in humans are mostly known in the market as a form of attraction. Products such as nexus pheromones are used as a way for humans to attract the opposite-sex, such as males attracting the females and vice versa.  

However, according to many experts studying the effects of nexus pheromones, the effect of this type of pheromone is not only used to attract a potential mate, such as that in the animal kingdom, but also gives a competitive edge for many people. 

Using these kinds of human pheromones, other than the nexus pheromones, to attract the opposite-sex can also work in situations in which standing-out from among competition is important, such as in a job interview.

In job interviews, skills and experience is not the factor that allows an applicant to land in a position. According to manufacturers of these kinds of products, a person using specialized pheromone colognes can increase a human's attraction to its interviewer, allowing the interviewer to view this applicant differently from others.
