Tamsin Saxton of the University of St Andrews studied the influence of androstadienone by dabbling a drop of it on the upper lip of 50 women who took part in the evening trial before they "dated" a series of men.

Sociopolitical climate affects dating preferences
36 single male Canadian students read an excerpt either describing a poor or positive view of the social, economic, and political climate in Canada.

After this, participants looked at several women’s online dating profiles and then rated their interest in getting to know these women romantically. Profiles were described in stereotypically feminine ways (i.e., “vulnerable, pure, and ideal for making men feel complete”) or more non-stereotypical ways (i.e., “career oriented, party seeking, active in social causes or athletic”).

Reading an unsettling review of the current sociopolitical climate enhanced men’s preference for stereotypically feminine women, but it did not enhance nor diminish their interest in non-stereotypic women.
