According to recent scientific research, it is not true that humans have to smell for pleasure!
According to a common belief, man, to be truly a man, must stink. However, science does not think so, which has shown that deodorant is of great help to be successful with women.
It's not just about personal tastes. The researchers asked a group of people (both women and men) to judge the masculinity and femininity of men's and women's faces and, subsequently, to rate these characteristics also based on smell.
In some cases the smell was natural, in others with the deodorant. The results were interesting: the judgment of masculinity and femininity of the faces was correlated to the judgment of masculinity and femininity of the smell.
Women gave a higher rating to subjects who used deodorants and perfumes, judging them more masculine. Even the same men considered perfumed subjects more male. Curiously, however, no effect of perfume emerged in the judgment of femininity.
