THE NOSE KNOWS

Elle (Canada) - - Relationship -

Trust your in­stincts next time you’re pick­ing out a scent and it could pay ma­jor div­i­dends in your love life. Ac­cord­ing to re­search pub­lished in the jour­nal Be­hav­ioral Ecol­ogy, we tend to like per­fumes that match our own nat­u­ral ma­jor his­to­com­pat­i­bil­ity com­plex, a cell pro­file that is be­lieved to play a part in at­tract­ing a mate. Es­sen­tially, when­ever you spritz on your beloved Marc Jacobs Daisy or sig­na­ture Dior Poi­son, you’re amp­ing up your ol­fac­tory mag­netism with­out even know­ing it.
