Perfume 101: Why same perfume smell different on different people?

currently i have four perfume.
1) Nina by Nina Ricci
2) CK in2u by CK
3) L'autumnal by Ed Pinaud
4) Rose by Avon

When I wear those perfume, i wonder why the smell change, why it smell different for different people. So, I do some research. And this is what I found.

Why does the same perfume smell different on different people?Skin absorbs some of the fragrance chemical. How much is absorb and which chemicals are depends on your skin’s oil content and acid balance, as well as the presence of hormones. Each one of us has unique skin chemistry. So each person’s skin absorbs different components of the perfume. A different mixture of volatiles wafts from each person – so the same perfume smells differently on different people. –adapted from Earth & Sky

What is top notes, middle notes and base notes?
Top notes: The scents that are perceived immediately on application of a perfume. Top notes consist of small, light molecules that evaporate quickly. They form a person's initial impression of a perfume and thus are very important in the selling of a perfume. Also called the head notes.

Middle notes: The scent of a perfume that emerges just prior to when the top notes dissipate. The middle note compounds form the "heart" or main body of a perfume and act to mask the often unpleasant initial impression of base notes, which become more pleasant with time. They are also called the "heart notes".

Base notes: The scent of a perfume that appears close to the departure of the middle notes. The base and middle notes together are the main theme of a perfume. Base notes bring depth and solidity to a perfume. Compounds of this class of scents are typically rich and "deep" and are usually not perceived until 30 minutes after application.

I try to find connection between perfume and blood type. But could not find one. As i believe, different blood type have different chemical.
Anyway next time when you want to buy a perfume, spray it to your wrist and walk around for one hour to make sure whether the perfume really suit you or not. Whether you like the base note or not..
