Looking for a date? Just follow your nose
The editor of a top American woman's magazine has said that sex appeal is linked to smell, it has emerged.
Appearing on CBS' The Early Show, Cosmopolitan editor in chief Kate White said that human sex appeal can be broken down into four distinct categories, reports United Press International.
Ms White defined the major attraction types as instant attraction, the power of scent, slow-burn love and opposites attract.
She said that instant attraction all stems from childhood crushes.
"When you find yourself attracted to preppy guys with blue eyes or Johnny Depp because he was your crush, it really has to do with those early crushes," she said.
Being attracted to someone because of their smell is apparently very instinctual, while slow-burn love is all about long-term compatibility.
She said: "Slow-burn love is when all of a sudden you find yourself attracted, maybe after many years, to a guy who you were friends with."
So whether you're looking for animal attraction or long-term love, complete this form to search for your perfect guy or girl!
