scent lingering in the nose?

This morning it seemed the scent of jasmines was stronger than it's been, and inside now a half hour later I can still smell it off and on. Anyone with knowledge of physiology--do those little scent moledcules stay in your nose for a while?

Well, I guess no one knows, so I'll bump this down. Anyway, it hasn't happened again, but I am curious whether this has happened to other people.

Hi, Happened to me yesterday... had this lingering smell of J.Molle on and off when I was doing some chores... later realized that it was on my fingers(I plucked few buds to put them in water earlier)...:-)

I also noticed that yesterday with my J.molle. I made a lei with the flowers and had it my family room but I can smell fragrance all the way in my kitchen and foyer area. This summer I find all the jasmines with strong fragrance than before.

Could it be the extra humidity? Mine are very very strong this year and only seem to be that way on very warm and humid days. When a front goes through and a drier airmass moves in, I don't enjoy the fragrance as so.
