Pheromones act at the chemical level and fulfill different functions, and one of them involves the attraction that a person may feel towards us. This function of pheromones has been replicated with relative success through perfumes.
There is an ancient belief that associates the intensity of the smell of the armpits with a supposed exaltation of masculine virtues, a belief that is based on this same ability of pheromones to facilitate the interrelation of other people with us.
