Paper & prose for the nose

smell.jpgHere’s one for the Gift List this season. It’s a scent from CB Experience called “In the Library”.

Here is the description of the fragrance, from the manufacturer’s site:

“English Novel taken from a Signed First Edition of one of my very favorite novels, Russian & Moroccan leather bindings, worn cloth and a hint of wood polish”

What’s really cool is that we all know exactly what they are talking about. If you’ve spent anytime in a used bookstore, you know that nice comforting aged paper smell they are referring to. I sure do wish there was a way to sample the goods over the internet.

Now, if they can just get the smell of a fresh batch of bluelines or color print proofs in a bottle… but maybe that’s just me.
