  1. Axilla

    The axilla is the area on the human body directly under the joint where the arm connects to the shoulder. It also provides the under-arm sweat gland. In humans, the formation of body odor happens mostly in the axillary region. These odorant substances serve as pheromones which play a role related to mating. The armpit regions seem more important than the genital region for body odor which may be related to human bipedalism.
