This is my normal reaction to tarragon - I remember, years ago, a diner that had a chicken salad heavy on tarragon. The first two bites were so very good that I would sometimes get an order just for the pleasure of eating them, and then pick at the rest, or take it home so that I could reset my tastebuds and experience another "first two" bites the next day.
The same is true of salmon. I love smoked salmon. Adore it. Dream about it. But I only eat it at buffets, because the dream is entirely fulfilled in three bites, and then I don't want to see it again for at least a day.
Some perfume notes affect me the same way. I've mentioned more than once that orange blossom is gorgeous for less than a minute, and then it annoys me. Whatever note usually produces grapefruit pleases me for a good five minutes, and then I read it as synthetic. That lime peel note in Sweet Lime & Cedar is lovely for perhaps half an hour, and then it seems to grow and grow until I want to flee.
Is this just me? Do I have naturally fickle tastebuds? Or do you also have some scents and flavors that you adore, and then promptly push away?
