Partnered women blindly rated their partner's body odor as smelling less strong than the body odor of unknown males.
Partnered women were unlikely to rank their partner's body odor as most preferred in a pool including six unknown males. Despite evidence indicating body odor BO preference is an important driver in mate selection, studies have only investigated females' preferences for the BO of strangers.
Therefore, the aim of the current study was to determine if partnered females prefer their partner's BO compared to that of others males' BO. The indicated that both partnered and single women blindly rated their known donor's BO as smelling ificantly more similar, familiar and sexy compared to six unknown male's BO, but rated their known donor's BO as less intense smelling than unknown males' BO.
While participants indicated they liked their known donor's BO more than that of unknown males' BO, the difference was not statistically ificant.
Moreover, participants were unlikely to rank their known donor's BO as their most preferred of seven BOs. Finally, partnered and single participants could reliably recognise their known donor's BO and that of unknown males' which was driven by their ability to indicate a stranger's BO was not that of known donor's.
Overall, these preliminary findings suggest that partnered females may prefer their partners' BO but this preference may not be due to mate selection but instead a consequence of repeated exposure to their partner's BO.
