You may have heard of love at first sight, but what about love at first scent?
In Phoenix, singles mingled at a “pheromone party” last week and were each given a T-shirt to smell from a prospective date.
Producing love in a Ziploc bag
Each participant was told to sleep in the same T-shirt. No body spray, perfumes, after shaves or smoking in the shirts was allowed.
The shirts were then put into a Ziploc bag and put in a freezer each morning.
Releasing the pheromones
At the party, each bag was coded with a number on a post-it note. The participants were each given a chance to open and smell the T-shirts in the bags and keep a tab on which one made them weak in the knees.
Why sniff out love?
Experts say naturally-occurring pheromones are unique – almost like a fingerprint and are important in finding a mate.
