Thanks for sharing your story - its wonderful you have been able to make a living in this industry
I think if you were hoping to learn, there is no better place than right here on basenotes.
The "Just Starting Out" forum in particular deals with many of the basic "Frequently Asked Questions" (eg: the differences between EDC, EDT, PDT, EDP, Parfum, Extrait and so on)... there is a lot of very valuable basic info there.
The other thing is perhaps to engage in some discussion on the forums here - the more you interract with other members, the more you will learn. Im sure you will find many insightful and varied opinions, and find that perfume is very much a personal journey. You are kind of at the beginning of yours, and in a way I a little envious! There is so much for you to discover... in your own time, of course!
If there is anything you need, just shout - Im sure there are many members such as myself whom would be willing to lend some advice and answer your questions.
