Human Pheromones: What's Purported, What's Supported - A White Paper Published by The Sense of Smell Institute
Date:7/30/2009

NEW YORK, July 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Human pheromones are over-stated, or are they? There has been an on-going debate in the scientific community as to whether or not human pheromones exist, and, if they do, exactly what effect they have on us. For most of us in the lay community, pheromones are thought of as sexual attractants and nothing more. So the Sense of Smell Institute, the research and education division of The Fragrance Foundation, turned to the experts in the field and commissioned Drs. Charles Wysocki and George Preti of the Monell Chemical Senses Center to prepare a review of recent scientific literature on the subject to gain a better understanding of just what pheromones are, and to assess what their true effect may be on human behavior.

Unfortunately, to most consumers, readers, listeners and viewers, "pheromone" has come to mean sexual attractant. Chemical-based sexual attraction is present in many species; however, these influences have not been demonstrated in humans.
