Fancya sniff under the mistletoe? Then East London’s Pheromone Party sounds right up your street. They say the way to a man’s heart is through…smell? Not quite, but clocking up a third stint at London Fields’ Stories Bar is one of the more unusual matchmaking nights and it involves hunting out your next lover by the smells on his dirty laundry.
Yep, that’s right, you’re literally going to sniff out your next partner, but it’s kinda not as gross as it sounds…There’s a little pre-event prep required, simply wear the same t-shirt to bed for the three days before hitting the party, taking it along in a large, ziplocked freezer bag (on arrival it’ll be given a number only you know). Then, as you get to work sniffing the shirts brought along by the opposite sex, they’ll be getting a good whiff of yours, while dancing along to some banging Christmas tunes, knocking back numerous glasses of mulled wine and trying your luck on the festive tombola.
So far, so good? When you find a shirt you just love the smell of, get one of the team to snap a shot of you holding the bag – the photos will posted on the walls, so if you fancy the person posing with your number, it’s a match! Go track ‘em down and enjoy the ensuing small talk – what’s the worst that could happen? You already know how they smell first thing in the morning…
