   TOKYO (AP) -- For men who can't seem to attract women despite the right
aftershave, flowers or cologne, Japanese scientists have developed a new
weapon for the olfactory arsenal: underpants laced with sweat. Well,
synthesized sweat, anyway. Millions of tiny capsules in the fabric contain
a synthesized pheromone found in the sweat of a man's underarms. Friction
causes the capsules to break, releasing the scent. Apparel and cosmetics
maker Kanebo expects to put the shorts on sale by next spring.
