    Default What is This Note I Keep Smelling?

    For some reason, there seems to be this one note in many men's fragrances which seems to stand out strongly for me, and I can't quite figure it out. So far, I have detected it from the following fragrances: Francesco Smalto PH, Creed Himalaya, Realm, Chanel Antaeus, and many other 1970s and 80s men's fragrances. Of course, I all the fragrances have their own nuances, but all seem to strongly exude this one note... and for some reason it feels like I notice it more than others do. Anyone else notice this too?

    Could it be polyester? :-P

    There's a prominent sandalwood in both Antaeus and Himalaya if that's what you're talking about. Any way you can elaborate?

    Hmm... definitely not sandalwood. It's kinda herby and in the top notes of each, and doesn't really last all that long. I notice it in Salvador Dali PH as well. I noticed a few of those scents listed clary sage as one of the notes, so I'm suspecting this may be the culprit (or at least on of its major aromatic chemical compounds). I've never smelled it on its own, so I have no frame of reference.

    I suspect it is clary sage. Smell Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme and see if it's
    also prominent there? Also try Egoiste Platinum and Caron Pour Un Homme.
    Is it in all these?
    That would confirm it's likely clary sage.
