Pheromone Parties are a new type of dating service created by Georgia-based artist Judith Prays. They drill down to the basics of attraction and matchmake dates based on the scent samples of guests. Those taking part are instructed to sleep in a clean cotton t-shirt for 3 nights in a row to capture their odor and bring this in a ziplock bag to the party. The bags are then given a number and labeled pink for girl or blue for boy. They are then places on a table with only the guest knowing what their shirt’s number is, and everyone can smell the bags throughout the party.

If a guest finds an attractive scent they take a picture with the bag at a photographer station, and these are then projected as a slideshow on the wall. If they see a photo of a guest they find attractive holding their number, this indicates they should go up and talk to them. At the end of a party, the photos are uploaded to a Facebook album and tagged, so guests can still contact each other if they missed their chance. Check out Justin Rocket Silverman from The Daily visiting a Pheromone Party in the video below:
