The Sweet smell of Success

What does it smell like
what can I liken to the smell of success
After all of the work they put in to destroy you
Laugh at their plots
They have to watch
you now
All for a season of corruption
Let them throw the stumbling blocks
Let them sit in the seat of the scornful
Let them eat the fruit of their dark labor
You sit back and savor
the sweet smell of success

I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back

What did you think of my title?
Last few words: 
There is a contest for smells, I thought that this was an awesome challenge. I'm a poet and you know it. I haven't studied poetry, I have tried to conjure feelings and emotions that are awakened during the smell sensation, but in another way, not literal but figurative.
