Perfume can attract the opposite sex !

Here are the links to two very interesting articles, one in The Telegraph  and in Science Daily, about the perfume ingredient 'hedione' and the 'pheromone effect' it can trigger:

For the first time, researchers have found that a perfumery ingredient, 'Hedione', can trigger ‘sex-specific activation patterns’ in the nasal tissue directly linked to the brain of humans. It activates the pheromone receptor VN1R.

“These results constitute compelling evidence that a pheromone effect different from normal olfactory perception indeed exists in humans,” states Prof Hanns Hatt from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum in Germany.

This research was first published in the journal NeuroImage.

Below are images of some perfumes that use 'hedione' in significant quantities:
