Pheromone Party Anyone?

Pheromone: a secreted chemical factor in all of us that triggers a social response in others. These chemicals can impact people around us.

We have all heard of love at first sight…but love at first scent!? No need to waste any more time “hottie hunting,” because here is the newest craze to meet new guys/girls…attend a pheromone party!

Pheromone Party/Dating: This is what you do. Wear a cotton t-shirt for three nights in a row (ew, I know. Don’t hate; I didn’t make up the rules). Go to a party with your “worn-for-three-nights-t-shirt” and pay a $30 fee. Put your t-shirt in a numbered zip lock bag at the front door (blue bags for guys, pink bags for girls), then wait and see who is attracted to your scent! Oh, one more thing: pose for a pic holding your t-shirt. After everyone has time to check out your scent and picture, potential guys/girls can decide whom they’re attracted to and want to meet.

Missed finding your perfect match at the party? No problem! A Facebook album is created where all of the t-shirt owners and their t-shirts are tagged.

Hmm…not sure how exciting it is to sniff a guy’s t-shirt that he’s worn for three days? It’s your choice, but many say it’s a fun way to meet and start talking!

Curious about this new, exciting phenomenon? Try it for your next party or get-together with friends, and check out the website for all the dirty details.


My name is Alexa Mellardo and I am currently a sophomore and Broadcast Journalism major at Suffolk University, located in the heart of one of the most charming cities in the world: Boston. A passionate journalist, I am fortunate to be doing what I love to do….writing! When I’m not composing articles for two awesome online publications (hercampus.com and also collegefashionista.com) and attending classes, I intern at a trendy magazine in the city. In between, I love to shop and spend time with my friends and my boyfriend. I have two addictions: shopping and cupcakes. In light of that, what better place to be than just blocks away from Newbury Street, Charles Street and Quincy Market? My quaint, vintage brownstone apartment in Beacon Hill is where my two best friends and I keep it strictly classy and fashionable. We turned our apartment into a comfy fashionable haven, and we enjoy relaxing and entertaining our friends. Living in such an awesome city provides a wealth of opportunity, fun, and culture to embrace. My dream is to one day be a respected, well-known broadcast journalist.
