Body Odor Plays Matchmaker
An American dating company claims to have discovered the first scientific way of finding true romance - body odour!

The dating company, ScientificMatch.com, says that the body odour is the main source of attraction.

According to the founders, ScientificMatch.com is the first service to use its DNA matching to link somebody to that perfect someone.

The service asks its members to submit a DNA sample, the saliva-swab normally used in paternity or drug testing, and then examines it to compute their ideal partner.

The company said that in analysing the use of DNA, the immune system genes would identify compatible match from people with different immune systems.

According to ScientificMatch.com, "a natural odour you'll love, with whom you'd have healthier children and a more satisfying sex life."

"The fact is, we love how other people smell when their immune systems are different from ours - they smell sexier," the company added.

Members are charged close to 1,000 pounds for the service, and are also asked complete a questionnaire on their "fundamental, core values" so they can be matched to people who share their beliefs, a process the company equates to "soul matching, or values matching".

The service has thus far been launched in Boston.
