‘The Smelly Mystery of the Human Pheromone’, A TED Talk on the Chemical Signals of Attraction

In “The Smelly Mystery of the Human Pheromone,” a talk given at the TEDxLeuvenSalon, British zoologist Tristram Wyatt explores the science — and lack thereof — surrounding human pheromones, the chemical signals designed to trigger sexual desire in potential mates.

The problem is, while there are many good scientists working with what they think are human pheromones, and they’re publishing with respectable journals […] there really is no good science behind it, becaus it’s based on a problem. No one has really gone through the millions of odors humans give off.
