Human pheromones – we need to talk

The IFRA United Kingdom Fragrance Forum 16th October 2014 at The Royal Society, London

Do we smell sexy? Popular ‘science’ suggests yes — pheromones, we often hear, send chemical signals about sex and attraction to potential mates. However, there is no conclusive research confirming that humans actually have these smell molecules.

“Sadly, despite the hundreds of web sites selling ‘human pheromones’, the molecules they offer don’t have any scientific basis. I think it is time to restart our search”. So says a senior scientist, Dr Tristram Wyatt from Oxford University, and a leading authority on the topic. He will be speaking on the topic Human Pheromones – we need to talk, at the IFRA UK Fragrance Forum on 16th October.
