I don't think you're irrational. The intent behind any piece of art is always brought to mind when experiencing it, otherwise it wouldn't be art in the sense that we know it.
That description is enough to put me off the fragrance, and I consider myself a very rational person.
Unfortunately, fragrance has strong links to the wasteful traditional upper class, partly because of history and partly because of the inflated price tags that some fragrances carry.
If a particular scent's advertising campaign is based on it being seem as an "aspirational brand" item, or a "prestige product", then I usually ignore that fragrance on ideological grounds. The world doesn't need anymore products catering to aristocratic gits. I prefer to think that sophistication is a state of mind, not something that someone obtains once they've killed enough tigers and foxes with the ol' boys.
