This is a great topic for the bloodhounds. My experience with TV has only been with samples and it always smelled the same, like a pouch of vanilla pipe tobacco. I can say that olfactory perceptions do evolve over time and exposure. If you smell a synthetic version of something closely, eventually its resemblance to the thing it apes becomes less and less convincing. Eventually the synthetic version becomes a thing unto itself and looses its connection to its point of reference. This is something Commes des Garçons played with in the their Synthetic Series.
Or as Alfred Korzybski states in his premise of General Semantics "The map is not the territory; the word is not the thing."
