I'm not sure what type of _evidence_ you seek; the following citation is
relevant to physiological effects.

Berliner, Monti-Block, Jennings-White, & Diaz-Sanchez (1996) The functionality
of the human vomeronasal organ. J. Steroid Biochem. Molec. Biol., 59, 259-265.

Several pages on the concept of human pheromones also were included in:
Diamond, Binstock, & Kohl (1996) From fertilization to adult sexual behavior.
Hormones and Behavior, 30:333-353

You may also wish to see page two of my web site:

Symposium on Taste and Olfaction, held last week, in case you wish to do
a Medline search for specific authors.
