Mushroom Smell?
    #4322770 - 06/22/05 12:32 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Hi all,

I'm a long time lurker and this is my first post to Shroomery. I've had a lot of success in the last fortnight or so with hunting psilocybe subaeruginosas and I have a question about the smell of mushrooms.

It's almost a year since I had my first mushroom trip, and I still have a gram or two left over from the original batch that an old friend gave me. This batch is at least two or three years old; if my memory serves me correctly, they were gathered by my friend sometime in 2003. Since I got them from him, they've always had a very noticable and unique scent. To the point that if I open the air tight container which holds the ziplock bag in my bedroom, my room will immediately begin to smell of it. It's quite a pleasant smell, almost like some exotic cookie or something :wink:

Now my question has two parts:

Firstly, while I've found a somewhat sizeable amount of subaeruginosas  so far, I've also collected a handful of some other ones growing in the area for studying and just for the general interest factor. As soon as I began distinguishing between the different types, it became very apparent that only the subaeruginosas had any scent. All other types that I both inspected and took specimens from had absolutely no smell. I can't really describe it, but I can make the olfactory connection between the fresh, wet smell and the dried, few-year-old smell. Has anyone else noticed this?

Secondly, when I've dried my newly found subaeruginosas, the smell has disappeared. Is this because they're freshly dried? After a year or two, if I were to leave them (..and not eat them.. not likely :wink: ) would the same smell be present?

FWIW, the mushrooms I'm picking and the ones I got from my friend came from the exact same area.

Any input is appreciated!
