- If you suffer from stress, then it does not hurt to smell your partner. This is shown by research from the University of British Columbia. 'Just the smell of partners can be a powerful way to reduce stress, even if they are not around,' says researcher Marlise Hofer.

Women who smoked on their partner's shirt during a test had much less stress. 96 couples were examined for the study. Men had to wear a white T-shirt for 24 hours. It was forbidden to use perfume. Women had to smell the shirt three times before and after this day.

Remarkably, women were more stressed when they had to smell the shirt of an unknown man. Additional research should show whether men respond to the smell of their partner in the same way.
