    have you ever tasted your fragrance?

    (And I'm not talking about Pure Chili).

     

    Sometimes I taste (not ingest) a small bit of the fragrance to help detect the notes.  I'm able to detect notes with my tastebuds that I can't do so with my nose.

     

    This started by accident a few months ago when I tried biting on a 1ml vial to get it open and it spattered in my mouth.  I realized that fragrances often taste a lot similar to how they smell.

    There are five tastes that you detect with your tongue; salt, sweet, sour, bitter, and savoury (aka Umami).   Everything else you, supposedly taste, you are, in fact, smelling.   The few times I have managed to get some fragrance in my mouth it tasted overwhelmingly bitter, due to the denaturant used in the alcohol.

    Yes olfactory and gustative functions often work together.

     

    Those are the five main senses, but there are many other types of tastes depending on which academics you ask.

     

    But yeah it is bitter.

    If so, only a few misdirected sprays while trying to apply the fragrance. Never sensed too much though, these very few unintentional tastings of equally fragrances had little to no flavor, ranging from neutral to alcoholic without much else.

    Not intentionally. I have inadvertently licked the tip of my finger a couple of times after previously dabbing on a sample. As you said, it tended to taste like it smelled, and you could pick up on certain notes.

    I bite my nails alot. I bring a decanted vial of Aventus to work, to touch up a little bit after lunch. I applied the Aventus, and about 15 minutes later i subconsiously started to bite my nails. All of a sudden i start to get a sweet and smokey taste in my mouth. My first reaction was to run to the bathroom to wash it out, but then i realized that i actually like it to some degree. So yea i have tasted Aventus and it's actually pretty darn good.

    Bad idea. I used to put my face against my arm to smell samples, and they got on my lips often, and it gave me chemical sensitivity. Burning sensation in the mouth. Took years to overcome by avoiding exposure to my mouth. Don't do it.

    I put 4 to 5 sprays of Terre d'Hermes on my eggs every morning.

    David - just a fyi - See chart below - this is per Vedas, we have 6 tastes, which are incorporated in Indian cooking - of course not the ones u find in restaurants nowadays - this will be like a festival meal in our home - we still do follow it some times in a year...Now, all NoirDrakkar has to do is find parfums accordingly to add to his diet grin.gif

         Always before. I keep it on my table between the ketchup and salt and pepper. Some guy in a thread recommended it to me once and since then I've been hooked!  smiley.gif
