Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

"Of the five senses, the sense of smell is incontestably the one that best conveys a sense of immortality."
"Perfume is, among other things, the most portable form of intelligence."
“Perfume is decidedly not about two things: it isn’t about memory and it isn’t about sex. Perfume is about beauty and intellect....A perfume is a message in a bottle—not a smell—and the message is written by the perfumer and read by the person who smells it.”
There isn't much of that intelligence here. This place has become a ridiculous focus group of insecure and not very curious men looking for something that will attract women and stimulate people to give them compliments. They don‘t know much but they’re blowing loads over the latest half-assed $300 niche fragrance they figure must be better than all hundred and twenty five years of Guerlain combined.
These are a few sites that provide a lot more relevant and compelling info about perfume:
