Smell for humans is the strongest sexual stimulus. Men and women are most attracted to the natural smells of a healthy, clean body.
When communicating with people, we rarely realize how they smell, but we are well aware of the emotions that they cause, and sometimes we cannot understand why the interlocutor, despite the apparent dignity, gives rise to persistent rejection in us. Have you noticed that when describing smells, we use the adjectives "pleasant" and "unpleasant"?
In interpersonal communication, smell is one of the components of a person's image. He can enhance the positive impression of the interlocutor or completely cross out a pleasant appearance, good upbringing and high intelligence.
It has been established that the perception of sexual odors is carried out by the vomeronasal organ (or, as it is often called, the vomer), which is located on the septum closer to the tip of the nose. Everyone has sex smells, but they are not caught in exactly the same way, and they do not act directly, they are not perceived by us as any smell, be it a fire, flowers, perfume, but affect the subconscious.
Sexual odors in humans are produced by glands located around the genitals and under the armpits. The individual smell of a man and a woman depends on many reasons, but mainly it is associated with the characteristics of the hormonal and immune systems, and the bacteria that live on our skin.
Interestingly, women perceive smells more acutely and more consciously than men. Often, the notorious female intuition is based on this unique ability to capture odors that are inaccessible to the male nose. Meanwhile, men are highly dependent on their sense of smell.
