New dating fad: Sniff strangers' shirts to find love
PRESCOTT, AZ. (KGO) -- Now, to the science of love -- there's a new type of singles event. Some say it stinks, while others believe the nose knows.
Singles in Arizona attended a pheromone party Friday night that encouraged those looking for love to smell stranger's shirts in plastic bags in search of pheromones that they may find attractive.
Participants had mixed results, but experts claim a person's smell really could be the deciding factor in two people's relationship chemistry.
"The scent or the Pheromone can actually evoke an emotional response which actually has a huge role in our bonding and attachment to another person," clinical psychologist Shannon Chavez said."
One man who went to the party admits smelling t-shirts sounds weird, but people will do anything for love.
