mmmm... no. It is true that some people are naturally able to detect some scents while others do not. It is also true that some people just cannot stand some scents. Moreover, we are naturally compelled to like some the smell of somethings(food, fresh water and herbs) and a the same time hate others (rotten meat, fices, skunk), but that hardly makes you an enthusiast. Nurture wins this round against nature. It is a cultural thing, something learned and developed. WE BNers are not freaks of nature. We turned to be perfume freaks all by ourselves.
