Olfactory unfairness

Why is it that smells that tend to linger are unpleasant? It's not just that it seems like the smell of skunk lasts longer than the scent of roses, it does last longer. And a fresh cut lemon scent doesn't stick around nearly as long as cat pee. I want lilacs to have the same staying power that smoke has.
