At the core of it, humans have something called a Vomeronasal Organ (VNO) which is responsible for being able to influence the behavior of other humans, when pheromones or other smells are detected.

While it may not show up as a functioning organ, that pheromones do in fact produce behavioral and emotional changes, and even influence the physiology of those around us.

Take for example the effects of a pheromone called “androstadienone“.

Below is a small transcript from a reputable science magazine, Scientific American:

“The researchers measured physiological vital signs like body temperature, skin conductance, ear pulse, blood pressure, respiratory function and cardiac rate throughout the experiment. They also measured mood and sexual arousal by checking the levels of cortisol, a hormone that has been associated with arousal and mood, in saliva samples.

The results: smelling the androstadienone increased positive mood, total physiological arousal, and sexual arousal, which grew with longer exposure
