If the group all like this technical approach, then definitely go for it - thinking of it in the same way that great painters/artists in centuries past were often very technically skilled. Whilst such a technical approach would be rare, what's most important is agreeing as a group on what you want. There are some good examples in Michael Schusters Essential Winetasting book, including 'reference tastings' of lemon for acidity etc. plus good comparitive tastings. However I sense this is more mainstream than you're looking for.
Thinking out of the box, have you thought about engaging someone involved in developing perfumes. It might be interesting/enlightening to see how they approach their subject.
