Men who find they struggle to attract women may find that an interesting new fragrance might help them in their quest to find the love of their life – the smell of printer ink. That's because the smell of printer ink on men proves very attractive to women, at least according to a new survey.

A poll of 2,000 people, undertaken by washing powder firm Daz and quoted by the Daily Express, revealed that women love the smell of printer ink, petrol, paint and leather on men. On the other hand, men are attracted to the smell of lipstick, baby lotion and, oddly, roast dinner, on women.

It is thought that these smells are particularly stimulating because they make people remember romantic moments in their pasts. "Some weird and wonderful smells can transport us back to a happy memory. This in turn makes us feel more relaxed and drawn to someone," TV relationship expert Simone Bienne told the newspaper.
