Why old books smell good. Imagine how amazing The Library smelled...before the whole vashta nerada thing anyway
"OLD BOOK SMELL: Did you know? Lignin, the stuff that prevents all trees from adopting the weeping habit, is a polymer made up of units that are closely related to vanillin. When made into paper and stored for years, it breaks down and smells good. Which is how divine providence has arranged for secondhand bookstores to smell like good quality vanilla absolute, subliminally stocking a hunger for knowledge in all of us." -PERFUMES: The Guide
Why old books smell good. Books worth breathing in.
