    Default The "Creed Effect" - olfactory infection...

    Try this out - pull out a creed that has a big sandalwood and ambergris accord (i.e. Green Irish Tweed, Original Santal, Himalaya) and sniff the inside of the cap. Then go smell another fragrance, whether it be the inside of a cap, or whatever you're wearing on your wrists etc.

    Do you notice the Creed effect? Whatever you smell after that will smell like it has a big sandalwood and ambergris accord in it!

    Does that happen with any sandalwood scent? Is it the Ambergris that acts like glue inside your nose?

    It is heavy molecules which can get stuck inside your nose, I think.

    Hirch has it right, I think. Sandalwood and amber/ambergris notes are made of heavier and more tenacious molecules (naturally, since they're basenotes).

    It's kind of like eating a bar of dark chocolate before dinner; the taste of whatever you eat afterwards will be coloured by the chocolate.
