Yes, in some situations. I periodically get a whiff of a particular scent on someone walking down the street or anything, and it transports me back to my first true teenage relationship because it reminds me of her. So that's one perfume I'll never forget.
My grandfather used to produce tobacco on his land. Since then, I've smelled the smoke of many people, but when I came across an old document of his a few years ago, the smell was unmistakable - no other tobacco smelled like his, and it transported me back to wonderful childhood days with him and my grandmother.
I can't think of any additional examples, but I'm sure they exist; I'm just having trouble remembering who they are right now. There are many individuals, and the majority of them lack a distinctive odor.

We all have pheromones that naturally and energetically flow out of our bodies. These pheromones increase and become more evident when our bodies heat up. When we apply eau de toilette, oils perfume, those pheromones mix with the scent's constituents and then mingles and oozes from us. Certain fragrances will affect one person differently than they will affect another. Some people will have an adverse reaction and will not smell great at all.
On that point, some scents are so alluring that once you've smelled one from one individual, you'll remember it as an imprint on your senses and carry it with you. When you pass someone on the street, for example, while their reaction isn't the same as the first person's, it's close enough to make you remember the first time you smelled it. It's fascinating, exotic, sexy, and extremely enjoyable. So, when this happens, embrace the pleasant feelings you're experiencing and enjoy them!
