HuffPo reports the latest dating trend among today’s young.
Sniff your way to love? Singles who have attended so-called pheromone parties haven’t ruled it out.
The get-togethers â€“ which have been held in New York and Los Angeles and are planned for other cities â€“ ask guests to submit a slept-in T-shirt that will be smelled by other participants.
Then, voila! You can pick your partner based on scent, or so the theory goes.
Guests sleep in a clean, white, cotton tshirt for 3 nights in a row to capture their odor print and bring this in a ziplock bag to the party.
Bags are labeled pink for girl, blue for boy. Each bag is assigned a number. Only the guest knows what their shirtâ€™s number is.
Bags are placed on a table. Guests smell the bags at their leisure throughout the party.
If a guest finds the smell attractive, they take a picture with the bag at a photographer station. These pictures are projected as a slide show on the wall at the party.
If you see a picture of a guest you find attractive holding your number, this is the greenlight to talk to them. Haaaay.
At the end of the party, a facebook album is created and all of the pictures are tagged – so if you missed your match at the party, you can still contact them.
