I think that's a very good point! I'm a very new perfume fanatic, so everything's new to me, and I love many more perfumes than the reviewers for that very same reason. I think too much experience can be limiting for all of you super-sniffers. The "reinvent the wheel" expectation is only going to hinder your enjoyment.
Good luck with your resolution! I hope it will give you new-found appreciation for all the other frags out there.
