Transmaniacon, your experience with these perfumes is very interesting to me, If these effects happens to you with industrial perfumes you should respond very powerfuly to natural perfumery.
The way perfumes influence our mood is a primary cause responsible for our liking them, for our buying them, and for our addiction to them.
Odours are psycho-active (see Tisserand's psycho-aromatherapy), and many molecules of natural and synthetic origin are identical in structures to pheromones. This is why they can influence our mood, our behaviour and even our physiological processes.
There is quite some documentation on the subject (see my bibliography), but you can find easily something googling for "psychology olfactory" or "psychology of scent".
