In 2010, artist Judith Prays held the world's first so-called Pheromone Party in Brooklyn.

Much like Smell Dating, participants at pheromone parties wear a T-shirt for three consecutive nights before sealing it in a bag and taking it along to an organised social event.

Indeed, one famous study found women were most attracted to the smell of men with different major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes to their own.

This idea of olfactory matchmaking has inspired Australian artist Tega Brain and editor and researcher Sam Lavigne to launch Smell Dating, the first "mail odour" dating service operating from New York.

After wearing a T-shirt — but no deodorant — for three days and nights, participants swap their smelly sample for swatches of other participants' shirts.

” In addition to our booth, we have a Pheromone Education Center - a chillout space, playa living room, and bar laced with pheromone propaganda.

“Your nose knows.” Come for the pheromones, stay for the love!

In 2016, Pits or Balls and Sniff Out Yer Mate were a huge hit and stopped many a burner to witness the (in)accuracy of our senses.

In addition, as a 24 hour service, it is available to tease passerbys into experiencing a Wine & Cheese type analysis of an unseen stranger in the booth (we call it an armpit glory-hole, really).

Research suggests scent plays an intuitive role in matchmaking, and now one dating service is swapping Tinder for smelly T-shirts. Jessica Martin follows her nose into the strange new world of smell dating.

If you like the look of someone photographed with your bag (which, side-note, seems to nullify the whole premise), that's the green light to strike up a conversation.

Participants of Smell Dating, on the other hand, are partaking in the process alone, and are given absolutely no information, visual or otherwise, about the person whose shirt they are smelling."There have been a number of straight women who have matched with straight women, and straight men who have matched with straight men, so clearly they're incompatible," explains Ms Brain."But mostly people's matches have aligned with their sexual preferences.

The carnivalesque facade and the three iconic pit (glory)holes tempt passersby to try their hand (er, nose) at smelling out their friends/lovers or just having the novel opportunity to dig in (not too hard) to the surprisingly rich experience of analyzing an armpit from top to bottom, side to side, inside and out.
