The close links between perfume, sex and seduction have been woven over a long period and are rooted in myths, beliefs, religion and medicine. Is perfume still gendered today and, if so, what olfactory form does this sexuation take?

We look at the theme of gender and olfactory attraction, through the prism of history, marketing, anthropology, sociology and biology.
