The Paradoxical Stink

When I studied learning and cognition in school we studied sensation and perception. One of the things that we learned about was paradoxical hot and cold. This is when you touch something hot and it feels cold or vice versa. So occasionally I feel this applies to my sense of smell. There are some smells that I love so much that if I linger too long with them, begin to turn bad to me...almost skunked. This is not just with perfume...it happens a lot with my favorite flower...star-gazer lily.
The reason I say this is that it happened with the fragrance I was wearing today. I would not notice it for a while and them all of the sudden "ah...that's nice" alternating with "oh...I wreak!"
Does this happen to anyone else...lie to me if you have to, but please say yes.
