    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 stoking a hunger for knowledge in us all. -Perfume: The Guide

Yes I'm a book sniffer. I love old book smell. Like the classics. Or at least 10 or 15 years old. I love new book smell too. Completely different =)
