Pleased to smell you


We all know that laughter is infectious, but did you know that the scent of ‘happy sweat’ can initiate a similar reaction? 

A study by Utrecht University in the Netherlands has shown that humans can communicate positive emotions such as happiness through the smell of our sweat, and that exposure to it induces a sense of happiness in others. So, if you want to bring a smile to someone’s face, forget giving them a gift or a compliment—now you can simply start perspiring with joy.
