Is it me, or does isoeugenol have a kind of meaty undertone, like uncooked bacon maybe? Or is the clove not making me think of ham? (even though clove and eugenol themselves never made me think of ham) Or maybe I am thinking of oriental lilies, which start to have a little hot dog (okokt korv, if you're in Sweden) undertone when the floraly smell starts to fade. I guess only the sandman knows for sure. Either way isoeuge is one of my favorite notes, along with methyl diantilis, to which it smells pretty similar. Flerp!
