There is truth about sexual chemistry and a man's scent
A woman's body will begin to react when she is in contact with a man that her body finds attractive. Her genitals will become moist along with blood rushing to her breasts, cheeks, ears, and lips. Her body will begin to release hormones when in contact with a man that she has a natural chemical attraction to. The female body understands that this man can produce healthy children at an unconscious level.

Sexual scent has been studied time and time again. It has been proven that a women's keen sense of smell can attract a biological mate but most relationships or people who marry and have children are not true biological match.
One study involved "The sweaty T-shirt" experiment:
A Swiss zoologist, Claus Wedekind ran a test study with a group of women called "The Sweaty T-shirt experiment. He wanted to test a woman's sense of smell to the male odors. He put together 49 women and 44 men that were selected for their variety of MHC gene types. The men were given a clean T-shirt and asked to wear them for two nights. The scientist then placed the T-shirts in a box. (Sniff box) each woman was asked to smell the shirt. Their task was to sample the odor of seven boxes and describe each odor as to intensity, pleasantness and sexiness, the results were quite interesting
The results of the test
The results were quite conclusive showing that most of the women preferred the scent of the male whose MHC gene was different from her own. The study explained how a woman's sense of smell can help her to mate with a person that she is not related to biologically, Two people producing children with a similar genetic makeup can cause a host of genetic related problems.
Since humans are animals the natural sexual scent attraction can be powerful but not always the defining factor in a woman choosing her mate. Humans don't always have sex to breed; in fact most people have sex for pleasure, intimacy, love and fun.
The sense of sexual scent can be masked in order to insure that the initial attraction is not just from the way a man smells but his personality as well. That is why cologne is so popular and comes in a variety of different scents, to mast a man's true smell and make the market for finding a women more prevalent . Most people you will rarely find a true biological match, and in some cases a man's scent can even turn a woman off without her or him knowing it.

A true biological match in a male and female where the female is drawn to the man because of his sexual scent is more powerful than any cologne. Some pheromone product on the market can also mask a man's scent, which is not always a bad thing.
A man could be a biological match for a woman but not have the mental, social or stability factor that a woman may really desire that is where the animal is taken over by the human mind. For some women it may play itself out as lust in the beginning or "lust at first sight", only later to realize that the sexual attraction was all that there was, purely based on sexual odor.
