Try doing that with a robot.

Okay, need to be wary: this is from a French news source.  French people stink and so they are attracted to people who smell like themselves because they are inured to their own smell.

I'm attracted to pumkin spice, certain shampoos and perfumes, cumin, and baked bread. Therefore I must smell amazing.

Pheromonal endocrinology.

The "smells" are hormones. Males who shower a lot when young, and reduce showering after marriage, have precipitously higher rates of their wives getting divorces.

Females who shower less when dating, and more when married, reported an equally large rate of infidelity... In their husbands.

/A group of blindfolded men were able to detect one woman 24 hours after a bathing event in a crowded room with 50 other men in total darkness by smell alone. When women were brought into the control portion, they could ALSO pick out the woman.

The men, however, could not detect a single man in a crowd of women... Here's where this gets weird...

It suggests that women, not men, are more inclined to attract other women, while men are more inclined to ignore other men.

This is BACKWARDS from ANY other primate... And we don't know why humans do this.
