Smell is an important human sense for a comfortable life which interested perfume and luxury ‎industries till now. In this paper, we investigated theoretically interactions between chemokine receptor ‎and synthetic odorants of the young family of dienone musks using molecular docking by exploring the ‎steric and electrostatic complementarity. Interpreted results allowed better understanding of smelling ‎process involving protein receptors and brought helpful ideas to design new odorant molecules‎‎.
