SP Burn Out

SpamSpam Member
I've used lots of snuff over the years, primarily menthols. Then I took a little break from snuff. I got back into it with an order from WoS. Now I've noticed the SPs (including Lemon Grove) really lose their punch quickly.

If I take something like Crumbs of Comfort or Royal George I get the same big flavour every time. However the SPs become quite flavourless to me within a day, then I have to use something else for a day or two before I get the same big flavour hit.

Does this happen to anyone else?

  • For me snuff is seasonal. different times of the year some snuff really shines. At other times they do loose something in translation . Menthol's in the hot summer can be a treat, but during the blast of frozen  tundra winds they will freeze your brain. 

    For your personal reference you should keep track when a certain snuff is best.  Most of the time I gravitate towards plain snuff like whites, scotches and toasts. Then when I reach for an SP or floral ,fruity or other scented snuff I enjoy them.

    I heard reference to my anecdote here elsewhere, but I'll post my version to add to this thread. And this is even with reducing my ecig use about 75% since when I started using snuff

    In my ecig right now I have a flavor bomb of honey dew and cantelope. Taking a big puff and the vapor having to bounce right off my tongue, I can't taste a single thing. If I wasn't willfully using the ecig I wouldn't know any flavoring was there. Zero sensation. Exhaling I can taste just a hint on the sides of my tongue. But when I got the 130ml bottle a month ago the flavor was almost too strong.

    After enjoying a flavor 10-50x every day I suppose the body just filters it out. Much like how I forget I'm in chronic pain often until someone asks or reminds me about it, or if I get some kind of releif. Or how at my old home someone remarked how you could hear the freight trains blowing their whistles in the distance - I couldn't recall hearing them blow their horns in the years I lived there just because our sensors save our attention for things they aren't always accustomed to.

    That's what I think at least

    My sisters' husband suffered from that. He was deeply depressed by the complete block of e-juice scents after one year of vaping.

    As of late, it started happening to my nose quite often, too. I don't feel the aroma of Super Kailash anymore. I don't get any rose or floral scent in Anarkali and I smell only spearmint in Himtaj Golden. Just faint sweet smell and menthol. And no, they haven't lost their scent, my wife smells them all even from a fair distance.

    In my case this blockage is kind of selective, it affects Indian snuffs only. I still smell, say, bergamot and rose in GH SP and get citrussy smoke notes in Kownoer, though in the nose smells fade out a way faster than before.

    @volunge with the GH SP you can still smell well, is that something you enjoy as often as the Indian snuffs that you don't smell as much?
  • @ar47 no, I got my first can of GH SP only last week. I'm trying to resist temptation to draw any conclusions or generalise, though, for this issue seems quite complicated.

    I don't use any medicaments and my sense of taste is intact.
