Scents are powerful things although they are under-rated along with our sense of smell. Perhaps it is because smell is the mute sense, the one without words. ~Diane Ackerman
And yet nothing is more memorable than a smell.
We love Diane Ackerman and her book, A Natural History of the Senses, 1990. We urge you to get your hands on a copy if you can. We will be quoting Ackerman's brilliance often. :)
With Valentine's day just around the corner, we are reminded of the connection our sense of smell has with who we are drawn to and are attracted to.
This feature on #elitedaily caught our attention and it is our pleasure to share it for the low-down on MHC or what we like to refer to as pheromones.
"Apparently, human beings are capable of sniffing out certain parts of our potential partners' DNA that make up their immune system, called major histocompatibility genes (MHC), to determine whom we're compatible with.
We tend to be drawn to people whose MHC compositions are different from ours so that the immune system of our offspring covers as many diseases as possible."
