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.
