    Olfactory communication is very

    common amongst animals, and since the discovery of an accessory olfactory system in humans, possible human olfactory

    communication has gained considerable scientific interest. The importance of the human sense of smell has by far

    been underestimated in the past. Humans and other primates have been regarded as primarily `optical animals' with

    highly developed powers of vision but a relatively undeveloped sense of smell. In recent years this assumption has

    undergone major revision. Several studies indicate that humans indeed seem to use olfactory communication and are

    even able to produce and perceive certain pheromones; recent studies have found that pheromones may play an

    important role in the behavioural and reproduction biology of humans. In this article we review the present evidence

    of the effect of human pheromones and discuss the role of olfactory cues in human sexual behaviour.
