    Default Non-perfumer wants to learn notes...

    So, basically what the title says, except I want to do it without breaking the bank. I'm wondering if slowly acquiring some bottles of essential oils having the various notes I would like to learn is a good way to go? I know EO's aren't suitable for perfumery but I'm not interested in mixing my own perfume or doing anything with them besides sniffing them. Many of the notes that commonly occur in perfumes are familiar to me but I do not know their names... I have a "notes database" in my brain, but many of the notes are unlabeled and I want to be able to label more of them (again, without breaking the bank). Also, I don't need to learn every note in existence, just looking to get the more common notes.

    Any pointers/tips are appreciated.
