Is it just me? Smell Reminders

So I know I'm weird, but there is something about scent that triggers memories for me.

Now because I am a reader, a lot of my books have a certain memory attached to it and a certain smell.

So for example when I smell the beach, I am reminded of Robin Hobbs Liveship Trader series. When I smell my old perfume, I am reminded of Jeaniene Frosts Night Huntress series.

I just walked through a cloud of deodorant...and was reminded of my bookshelf.

Perhaps its because I keep my deodorant on my desk...which is right next to my bookshelf but the smell of deodorant makes me want to read...
