We all have a ‘type’ in mind when searching for a partner, but have you ever been attracted to someone that doesn’t fit your usual criteria? We are the expert dating site that not only helps people find a partner online but also believes in making real life connections through exclusive singles events (matching over 1.2 million couples and counting).

Through our 450+ events every year, we have seen the role our subconscious plays in making romantic connections. As a result, we have teamed up with Parisian laboratory, CARACTER, to introduce Eau M.G. – a range of six distilled odours of real life Match male members allowing us to investigate the role of smell in attraction. We are aiming to highlight the importance of getting out there and finding out how your natural instincts play a part in sniffing out your ideal connection (even if their detailed profile page has already piqued your interest!).

By sending six Match bachelors’ clothing to CARACTER’S lab, we were able to distil their ‘olfactory portraits’ (a.k.a natural odours) and bottle them into personalised Eau M.G. scents. A person’s olfactory portrait contains pheromones, which when released by the body are subconsciously detected by the nose and brain, which can help determine genetic compatibility.

Eau M.G. is now ready to be tested in our central London pop up: Eau Mon Garcon, 30 Exmouth Market, EC1R 4QL. The shop will be open to the public on the 9th, 12th, 13th and 14th February from 10am-2pm, and on the 13th February an additional two hours from 6pm-8pm.

We are also offering a free three-day membership so that if you can’t make it to the shop you can check out the single guys here and message any you like the look of. Just click the button below and sign up! You can then you can find each of our members through Match by searching their usernames below.

Duncan Thorpe

33, Manchester, Interior Designer

Username: DuncanMarch84

I don’t take myself too seriously, and my friends would say I’ve got a good sense of humour. I love music, art, design, museums, wine and city breaks. Although I’ve been happily single for two years, I’m on the look-out for the one again. I’m thoughtful, funny, caring, intelligent, ambitious, and strong minded, all of which are qualities I look for in my date.

Kris Tatarkowski

31, Croydon, London, Writer

Username: Kris_86

I’m an easy-going guy with potentially unrealistic ambitions in life and love. I love running, especially in the rain, and I enjoy cooking – although not as much as I enjoy eating, which is why I need to go running. My favourite author is Tolkien, and my life goal is to one day become a bestselling novelist like him.

Sean Beegan

25, Horsham, Assistant Catering Manager

Username: Beegs256

I’m a tall, dark, athletic guy who enjoys running, cricket and golf. Although I love going out with my mates, nothing beats the occasional cosy Friday night in by the fire with a film. I also cook a mean soufflé if food’s your thing!

Jack Williams

34, London, Financial Regulator

Username: JackW83

I’m a fun-loving, kind and thoughtful person with ambition to succeed. Sport, comedy and socialising are three of my favourite things, I’m always up for new experiences, and I like a challenge. Chivalry isn’t dead – your mum would love me!

Michael Rothon

27, Southampton, Aerospace Engineer

Username: MountainMike

As an Aerospace Engineer, I know which end of a screwdriver to use. When not glued to my PC, I can be found climbing mountains all over the world. When taking it a bit easier, I love small indie gigs, hacking together a homemade gadget, or cooking up a storm in the kitchen.

Paul Stubbs

32, Surrey, Quantity Surveyor

Username: PaulYouNeedIsLove

I’m an articulate yet cheeky international man of mystery who combines passion, intelligence and ambition in one awesome package. I love sport (particularly American Football), and nothing beats a good steak and cold beer.
